Could be better

PostedMarch 29, 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Comfortable, Looks great
Cons: can get a bit sweaty
This jacket is warm but if you wear it over a long distance, you will swear and then get a bit chilly as the back and arms are breathable
Looks very nice though and feels good quality
Maybe I just haven't got my layering correct yet?

Neither breathable nor wind proof

PostedFebruary 25, 2013
No, I do not recommend this product.
Pros: Comfortable, Looks great
This jacket looked like good value as described and feels very comfortable when worn. Unfortunately that's about the best of it as in real world conditions it falls far short of the claims.
The wind proofing on the front is acceptable but too much air forces its way in under the armpits in both upright and racing positions. The lack of overall breath ability makes this worse as it means that you will soon be sweaty and cooling down rather too much.
It's not a patch on similar Gore jackets and jerseys I have and represents poor value, best avoided
