Packable weather protection.

Be prepared for rapidly changing weather conditions with the lightweight and highly packable Gore Bike Wear Men's Rescue WindStopper Active Shell Jacket. Made with a Windstopper membrane and Active Shell technology, this jacket blocks the wind and fends off drizzle to keep you dry. And unlike many wind and water-repellant jackets out there, the Rescue provides needed breathability to prevent overheating and the dreaded clammy microclimate.

For added utility, the Rescue features a zippered Napoleon pocket at the chest which doubles as a stash pouch for quick storage in a jersey pocket when the winds die down and sunny skies prevail. A streamlined hood sits close to your head and tucks neatly under a helmet to protect your dome from the elements, and an elastic hem holds the waist in place to prevent bunching. For added safety, Gore includes reflective logos and printing across the back and sleeves to increase visibility to motorists and other road users in low-light and dreary conditions.

Best emergency rain jacket for biking!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: Medium

I'm a mountain biker and now I will never leave for a ride without this jacket. It is so small that it disappears in my pack and also can fit in my hip pack for a shorter ride. The fabric doesn't feel plastic-y, and is comfortable next to skin on a warmer wet day. Windstopper is ridiculously breathable and with taped seams, it makes it highly water resistant. I've been caught in torrential downpours in the mountains and I've never had it wet through.

In my opinion, every biker should own this jacket! Hope they make a ladies soon. I'm a size 6 on average and I can fit in the small, but chose the Men's Medium in case I need a layer. So size up!

The best bike jacket on the market

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: Large

This is the most highly engineered emergency jacket on the market. It is 100% windproof and extremely water resistant. Gore used their lightest Windstopper membrane and sealed all of the seams on this garment. Giving it incredible breathability built for biking and real weather protection. This isn’t like another junky plastic biking coat. It is also one of the lightest jackets on the market. It comes in at under 150 grams or about 5 oz. and it folds into a pocket that fits in the back of your jersey easily. Start a cold ride with it on stash it once you get warm or keep it for the summer thunderstorms that can pop up and ruin a ride. It’s an amazing piece and probably the best biking jacket on the market. The fit is slim. I am 5’11” 165 and I wear a large. Feel free to email me if you have any questions about this or any bike jackets you see on the site. packs into a pocket and
