Product Details

Gore Phantom GWS Zip-Off Jacket

Gore's best selling cycling jacket isn't Gore-Tex. It's this Gore Windstopper top with zip-off sleeves which enables instant conversion to short sleeve body-warmer mode.

What's great about Gore Windstopper
GWS is Gore Windstopper. As with Gore-Tex, Gore Windstopper is a fabric with a waterproof membrane mid-layer which boast billions of holes per square inch. These holes are so tiny, water molecules can't get in, yet they are large enough to allow water vapour to escape, with the result that the membrane is exceptionally waterproof, windproof and breathable.

Compared with Gore Tex, the Gore Windstopper membrane has larger holes, making it even more breathable. What's more, its soft thermal lining means you are less likely to require a mid layer when you go out on a cool day. This is a good thing because wearing less, while still benefiting from serious protection against the elements, helps maximise your freedom of movement and ultimately your enjoyment of being out on your bike.

  • The Gore Windstopper membrane is breathable, windproof and waterproof, so the Gore Phantom GWS Jacket will keep you almost as dry as a full-on waterproof top
  • The fact that Windstopper seams can't be taped means that Gore Windstopper garments don't come with the full Gore-Tex Guaranteed Waterproof warranty
  • However, you can be sure that a Gore Phantom jacket will keep you dry through hours of showers
  • The Gore Phantom feel smooth and streamlined on the outside
  • Stretch panels and inserts optimise freedom of movement
  • This jacket can be be worn over just a base layer on a cool day
  • Or wear it as a mid layer when it's very cold and wet
  • Detachable zip-off raglan sleeves
  • Full length water-resistant, lined zip with semi-lock slider
  • The 3 large rear pockets may well carry all the extras you might need for an afternoon ride, thus saving you from weighing down the bike with bags
  • These pockets are the perfect place to store the jacket's sleeves when you unzip them
  • The Napoleon pocket with cable port keeps your phone safe but accessible
  • The full front zip's reflective trim and the reflective print/logos on the back and sleeves help get you seen
  • Elastic binding on the wrists and hem enhance the Gore Phantom's streamlined fit - no need for Velcro straps or cord-pulls here
  • Manufacturer's published weight: 380g (size large)
