Skip the trainer and spin through the wind.

You're not one to call a ride short because of a chilly breeze and a little bit of snow in the air, instead, you give your kit a quick adjustment with frost-worthy additions, like the Gore Bike Wear Oxygen WindStopper Long-Sleeve Jersey. Crafted with three layer construction that stands up to whipping winds, this jersey becomes a virtual barrier to trap heat in, and keep the cold out when you hammer through early spring miles that keep others glued to the couch.

To start, Gore equips the jersey to withstand a mix of wind, rain, sleet, and snow showers by constructing it with the venerable Windstopper fabric. Water-resistant and completely windproof, the fabric will moves with you from your hoods to your drops and back again without feeling restrictive. On the inside, the jersey is fleecy and warm, trapping heat between its fibers, while whisking away sweat, so you stay comfortable and dry even after charging up a steep climb.

Topping it off with the bells and whistles you'd expect, Gore employs three deep back pockets to secure your riding essentials, and a zippered stash for keeping keys and cards safe. Along the back hem is an elastic gripper to keep things locked into place when you're in the saddle, while reflective accents adorn the hem, back, and shoulders to help you stay visible when the lighting gets low.

Great alternative to a shell.

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: Large

Great product. I sized up as I'm short but have big shoulders, especially for a triathlete. Also, Gore sizes small/skinny in my experience. I wanted something to keep me warm on 50 degree days in the aerobars; this completely fits that requirement. This has a good fit, keeps the wind out, and with a baselayer, keeps me warm without overheating. Far prefer it to a light shell - better fit and feel throughout.

Nice fall piece

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Size Bought: XL

Used few times 50-60F and works well. Not too loose or too snug, not too hot or cold. Wish it had the chest vest zippers like another piece they make. Would improve venting on long climbs. Fitted the XXL but returning because it is too loose.

Windstopper Gore

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Medium

I never realized how well windstopper material was until i wore this jersey w just a baselayer on a low 50 degree windy day. All my fellow club riders that didnt have a windstopper item were complaining they were cold while i looked like i was wearing nothing . I even had to unzip halfway to cool me down . This item is great as well as any other Gore Bike Wear items ive purchased.

Great bike Gear

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I own several different Gore Bike Wear windstopper items. Mainly to mix and match as the weather turns. On the east cost we can have huge 30 degree swings in a day sometimes making dressing for long winter rides a challenge sometimes. when I don't know what to wear I always go with a wool baselayer and this jersey. Keeps wind out but there is no insulation on it. Gore Stuff is all top notch and it is extremely durable as well, the orange is great for mountain biking somewhere like a national forest where you might encounter backcountry hunters. Most brands I use a large jersey but can do XL in Gore Jerseys.

Wind stopper!

I used this for the first time for my commute today. Mid-30s in the morning and low-60s coming home. In the morning I used it as a middle layer and it fit comfortably over a long sleeve base layer. Very comfortable. Coming home I used it as the outer layer and it absolutely stops the wind on the chest. The collar is comfortable and snug but not tight around the neck, so no noticeable breeze down the back.
The sizing runs small (IMHO) and if worn with a base layer could be extremely tight. It is a narrow fit, though stretchy, and a bit short in length for a long torso. The design does easily cover the back when leaning forward.

Highly recommend, but consider getting two different sizes and send one back.
