The packable shell is a staple every cyclist should own and the Gore Alp-X Windstopper Active Shell Light Jacket is one of the best in terms of quality construction, fit and features. Gore Winstopper active shells are the lightest, most packable garments offering total windproofness, maximum breathability and water resistance to repel rain and snow plus dry very quickly. They allow excess heat and water vapor to escape during highly aerobic activities so you can enjoy your ride in complete comfort.
Many shells on the market are designed to last two to three seasons at best. The Alp-X features rugged construction despite its light 110 gram weight that will allow it to last season after season. Fit is exactly what you want in a shell with snug arms with pre-shaped elbows. There is a long back and a comfortable, ergonomically-shaped collar. Gore has had over three decade to refine its waterproof, breathable fabrics so you can be certain you are getting the absolute best.
