Rain, wind, snow, or hail -- let it dump. The Gore Bike Wear ALP-X 2.0 GT AS Jacket is ready for whatever Mother Nature can dish out. With a patented fabric construction and an anatomic fit design, the ALP-X 2.0 is the wind and waterproof jacket that'll keep you warm and dry throughout your next trail adventure.Gore Bike Wear's ALP-X 2.0 GT AS jacket is made from Gore's patented Gore-Tex Active fabric. This material adheres to Gore's rigorous standards of lightweight, windproof, waterproof, and breathable construction. We understand that this is a tall order, but Gore alone has proven itself capable of commanding such absolutes. Enough so, that we can't really tell you exactly how Gore-Tex works, because it's easily the closest guarded secret in the fabric business. What we do know is that you'll never be dryer, regardless of how bad the weather is.The multi-layer fabric design allows high breathability and well regulated moisture transfer away from the skin to the outer-layer of the jacket. Not only is the jacket designed to compete with the weather, but it provides a precise anatomic fit as well. The ALP-X jacket features stretch inserts on the back and arms, and an adjustable hem and wrist cuffs to allow the jacket to follow you in and out of the saddle. Gore also incorporated an adjustable zip-away hood and a fold-away shirt tail for protection from wheel spray.And although the ALP-X 2.0 is made for mountainous touring, you're going to have to ride home at some point. That's why Gore's included reflective piping on the sleeves and back, and a reflective logo on the front, back, and collar of the jacket. For storage, the jacket uses a front Napoleon pocket and a zippered under-flap.The Gore Bike Wear ALP-X 2.0 GT AS Jacket is available in five sizes from Small to XX-Large and in the colors Black, Castle Grey/black, Kiwi/black, Navy Blue/black, Red/black, and Vibrant Orange/black.
