Gore Phantom SO Lady Bike Jacket
I've been using this jacket for a couple weeks now…
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $75
I've been using this jacket for a couple weeks now for both road and mountain biking and am incredibly satisfied with the product. Its construction is well-thought out and makes it versatile for a variety of temperatures.
Some of the highlights:
- You can easily remove and store the sleeves in the back pockets or just zip open the sleeve/armpit area slightly for additional breathability.
- Very breathable, helped by the fact that WINDSTOPPER fabric is only integrated where needed (i.e. not on the back of the jacket).
- Good looking
All in all I am very happy with the product and highly recommend it.

The GORE BIKE WEAR Phantom SO (soft shell) Lady bike jacket is a smart choice for fall-to-spring riding. Its detachable sleeves let it double as a long-sleeve jacket and a short-sleeve jersey! Gore WindStopper(R) fabric eliminates windchill, yet it's breathable and capable of quickly dissipating excess moisture to keep you dry and warm. Constructed with stretch inserts for easy movement. Soft tricot fabric lines the collar and shoulder panels for softness against skin. With a quick unzipping, long raglan sleeves come away to expose additional short sleeves-a great option to enjoy when the day warms up. 3 rear pockets easily store cycling essentials and food. 4-way-stretch cuffs provide a snug yet flexible fit; stretch hem keeps cold air from creeping up your backside. A full-length zipper with draft flap lets you easily regulate heat inside the jacket. Preshaped elbows and a contour fit provides superior comfort when you're aerodynamically positioned on the bike. Reflective accents on the front and back enhance your visibility. Cut and sized for a women-specific fit.
