Gore Alp X

Our review

Spendy but lovely. Well thought-out, small enough to be packable but good enough for all-day riding

Cut in soft Gore-Tex Paclite, the Alp X features long arms and a dropped rear that can be extended with a foldaway shirt tail.

The front zip is protected by twin storm flaps and hemmed by a mesh strip, and the flaps can be left open for ventilation. The hem and high collar have fast adjustment elastic loops and there’s a waterproof mobile-phone sized ‘Napoleon’ front pocket, which is handy. The rear mesh pocket is too small for a map though, and is too tight even for the jacket to squeeze into.
