Better than a pocket umbrella.

We've all had those days when we head out for a ride under ominous skies with a non-committal weather forecast in our pocket and fingers crossed for no rain. Take the stress out of those days with the Gore Bike Wear Men's Element GT Paclite Jacket and its weather-blocking, packable awesomeness.

Made with Gore-Tex fabrics, this jacket boasts industry-leading rain and wind protection wrapped up in a lightweight package that stows easily in a jersey pocket for quick access if the clouds decide to open up mid-ride. Once donned, a long back protects your backside from road grime and spray, while a close-fitting hood shelters your dome without any pesky flapping about. Adjustable elastic sleeve cuffs let you customize the fit to block out sneaky raindrops or chilly wind, and an elastic drawstring with covered cord stoppers at the hem provides the same protection at the waist.

Gore pays attention to the little details on this packable wonder of a jacket. Easy-open zip tabs let you unzip in a snap with even the bulkiest of gloves, while a napoleon pocket safely stows essentials along the ride and doubles as a stow-away pouch when you want to tuck the jacket away. To cap it all off, the Element GT Paclite Jacket comes with reflective elements across the shoulders, back, and sleeves to increase visibility to motorists in low-light and dreary conditions so you can ride safe and be seen in any weather.
