Our review

Top performance and value, but only if the fit suits you
Skip to view product specifications

As you’d expect from Gore, this gilet sailed through our waterproofing test for the front panels. It’s completely windproof too, and the vented back does a good job of controlling your body temperature. It also packs down small into either front pocket. Top marks for performance, then.


However, the same can’t be said for the ‘slim fit’ claim. Our large sample came up big and felt stretched in the front and a bit wide. The long collar is tricky to do up fully while riding, as it argues with your helmet strap, though its ergonomic shape is effective.
