Gore Bike Wear ALP-X Jackets Pro Review

I have gotten six months of good testing of the Gore Bike Wear ALP-X jacket and shorts, in varying weather conditions, and they have kept me warm, dry and comfortable.

Strengths:    light packs great gore tex and does what it is supposed to.

Weaknesses:    none, have to buy optional hood

Bottom Line:   
This is a great jacket, have got stuck in down pours thunder lightning with this in the mtns a couple times now always does the trick. It breaths great and has some nice features like front vent flaps with velcro that hold them open for when rain dies down but you want to leave jacket on. Highly recomended. Takes up less than other rain coats I have ridden with and friends ride with.

I got it 50% off but is worth the coin.

Strengths:    This is the ultimate jacket. Because it's super light, keep you warm, kepp you 100% dry and looks awesome.

Weaknesses:    Price

Bottom Line:   
I have bought this jacket before 3 weeks ago, but i guess I bought it in the right time, I was looking for a light jacket that will keep me dry on winter time, but also will keep me warm. In the beginning I just couldn't believe I'm able to find one. But I did. I bought it in the right time because in my country, this days are rainy days. I was outdoor with this jacket over 3 hours in the rain, and guess what- this one kept me dry ( I mean, 100% dry, with out any single drop of water in side the jacket) and also kept me warm, it didn't kept me warm as a coat that I takes with me for extremely cold wather, but i can say it did kept my body heat in it for sure.The last thing i want to say is that because it's extremely light, I am able to store it in side my backpack, and it's also great for long rides, because it's just can't fry you. And the bottom line is- If you are an All Mountain or XC rider that search for the ultimate bike jacket, so, there you have it.
