Gore Bike Wear Power Gore-Tex Active Jacket - Women's

Gore-Tex for the serious cyclist.

We're comfortable in asserting that the most irreplaceable piece of cycling-specific gear in inclement weather is the waterproof jacket. Gloves, hats, balaclavas — these things can all jump from sport to sport, season to season; but only a cycling jacket gives the mix of a sleek fit and water resistance we require on a bike ride. No one wants to ride in a tent-shaped poncho or a ski parka, so we turn to the original pros, Gore Bike Wear, and the Gore-Tex AS Women's Jacket when the weather turns to wet.

The Power AS Jacket is a true 2.5-layer construction, which combines an outer layer that carries the color and reflective details, a Gore-Tex layer, and an inner, protective scrim that the industry only counts as half a layer since it's integrated in the Gore-Tex fabric. Its outer shell is made with polyamide instead of polyester, which means it's lighter and more durable than Gore-Tex's other jacket, the Element. The Gore-Tex layer is the really important part, though, as that's where the moisture and thermal management goes down: water out, warmth in. Gore intentionally adds the modifier "durably" to waterproof and windproof because this jacket won't lose its resistances over the course of a season's use and/or in the wash.

The jacket's fit is cut slim for a race-ready profile and it features a zippered rear pocket for goodies and personal effects, a full zip with an underlayer at the collar, hook-and-loop for an optional hood (sold separately), adjustable cuffs, and an elastic hem. Reflective highlights include piping for your collar bones, upper arms, and lower back, plus a Gore logo at the back hem to make you as visible as possible in low-light conditions. The 2.5-layer construction means it's as lightweight and compactable as a waterproof jacket can be.

The Gore Bike Wear Power Gore-Tex AS Women's Jacket is available in six sizes ranging from X-Small to XX-Large in the colors Black/lumi orange, Fresh Green/neon yellow, Neon Yellow/black, Red/lumi orange, and Waterfall/ice blue.

Wrong size description?

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: Xxl

I ordered this jacket for the upcoming fall cycling & xc ski season. I ordered based on the sizing measurements that would fit me. They jacket is great looking but when I put it on it was 2 sizes too small :(( What gives? The jacket seemed like it was cut for a man. Broad shoulders and long arms and very snug in the hips. I know these jackets fit snug but come on ??

Seems great so far

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: small

This jacket fits great and looks good. I've only used it once or twice in light rain and stayed dry, but I'm interested to see how it does in heavier rain. This jacket also folds up small enough to fit in a jersey pocket which is exactly what I was looking for.

love it

  • Fit: True to size

best jacket ever! breathable but super light and packs fairly small (not really small) so you can put in your jersey.

Warm and functional

I ride this jacket over my layers when I fat bike in the snow. It kept me warm and dry and is small and packable. I love it.

Black/Lumi Orange

Black/Lumi Orange

Is there a photo error here with the Black/Lumi Orange option? When I click on that option, a Black/Neon yellow jacket comes up. Plus, that jacket doesn't look to be the same as the Waterfall/Ice Blue and Neon Yellow/Black options. The logo placement and pull tab are also different.

Oh no! It does look like we made a little mistake with the Black/Lumi Orange option. Thanks for pointing that out to us. We will get that little mistake fixed ASAP!

Not a problem! Thank you so much for clarifying :)

Great if you travel light

This is a slim fit and if you like to carry a lot of stuff in your back pockets, you may want to order up a size. The jacket fit great over an "empty" jersey but with full pockets, it felt too snug.

My gal says the color is so nice

I'm writing the review for her - and what good man doesn't do what his woman "suggests"? She loves the jacket, it keeps her warm on cold windy mountain ridge days, and fortunately she hasn't had the need to test it under worse conditions -but we all know Gore handles precip pretty well. The real test is how well does the jacket work when its dry? She wore it all day.
