Gore Alp X Lady Jacket

BikeRadar verdict

80.0 out of 5 stars

"Light and practical quality waterproof outer shell, if a little pricey"

Friday, January 2, 2009 10.00am By

The Alp X is a simple yet quality breathable waterproof shell made from Gore’s lightweight Paclite material. It can be worn on its own with a base layer in most conditions or works well as a small-packing emergency jacket, fitting easily into a soft shell pocket or backpack. 

It has all the bike essentials including foldaway drop tail, adjustable cuffs, sealed zips and even a roll-out hood, although a neck guard would have been nice on the zip.

While it might look basic it has enough features to be practical and is one of the best in terms of waterprooing and airflow. It’s best suited to all-day trail riders but works well for all types of riding.
