Garments engineered with Gore-Tex Active product technology are built for extreme breathability and are ideal for highly aerobic, done in a day activities. All components are built for optimized sweat management to ensure extreme breathability and optimum comfort in high aerobic conditions. The performance is also supported by a tight fitting and minimalistic garment design.
Ordered one of these as they are the new Active Shell material that is meant to be super breathable, (there is NO linning at all in this jacket and only 1 front chest pocket) but feels better next to bare skin than the packlite material as it has a bead type texture compared to the smooth packlite goretex
Im 5'10" 71kg and average shape The MEDIUM was a close snug fit - they are a "SLIM FIT" & meant to be tighter than a normal jacket
There was enough length in the back as its longer than the front There is NO hood in the collar as stated in the description but a hood can be fixed as there is the verelco tab at the rear of collar The arms are quite long compared to the standard Gore jackets so would suit a road bike stance although aimed at the mountain bike crew
I wanted a hood so returned my jacket and bought the Countdown GT Size SMALL !!
BEWARE - If you use a backpack this jacket might not be very servicable as the material is so thin to make it breathable it will saturate and wear in the shoulder areas Also this material will not bead for very long - but will not leak - just the outer fabric will look saturated and wet so will need frequent Tec washing to revive it - suppose if your a MTB'er this is not a problem as will be getting washed regular with dirt etc
Was advised about the above from an outdoor shop as the Active Shell is used in outdoor coats now If not using a backpack & regular washed they said it was a good bit of kit - so smash the piggy bank open !!!
