Simple but exceptional performance with a price tag to match

Why fix it if it ain’t broke? Gore has made few changes to its Paclite waterproofs in recent years. More waterproof than race-cape, yet lighter than the average waterproof, Gore’s Paclite will outperform them both. 


It’s heavy enough for daily use yet light enough to stuff in a pocket. Add to this amazing breathability, reflective trim and a women-specific cycling cut, and you have a pretty impressive product.


Even the waterproof zipper is easy to operate one-handed. Cuffs are elastic with Velcro. We’d like to have seen a chest pocket and perhaps underarm vents at this price, but would it still have packed so small? Quality comes at a price.
