Waterproof cycle jackets can improve your comfort levels on the bike considerably when the weather turns nasty. Factors such as wind resistance and high breathability are important if you will be riding at a high pace over a fair distance, along with wearing a good quality base or mid layer to help with wicking moisture away from your skin. Waterproof cycle jackets with hi tech fabrics such as GoreTex and eVent are well worth paying a little extra for, if you require high levels of breathability, this will improve protection, dryness and comfort on longer rides in poor conditions.

Benchmark Gore-Tex fabric delivers, but zippers and cuffs are difficult to adjust
With proven performance over the years, Gore has made Gore-Tex virtually synonymous with breathable, waterproof fabric. The Gore Active Shell jacket delivers on this promise in a road cycling cut, with nice details such as a high, sculpted neck and a long but snug tail.
While the fabric works well, the zippers are a challenge. The waterproof seals do indeed keep the rain out but they also require two hands to operate and to prevent the wrist cuff liners from jamming.
For those not familiar with Gore-Tex, the material seals out water while allowing some condensation from the body to escape. In the AS jacket, this means you can ride steadily with the coat on without drastically overheating the way you would in a non-breathable jacket such as a cheap plastic raincoat. That breathability is what you're paying for here.
As impressive as Gore-Tex is, it isn't magic, and you do need to unzip on long climbs, even in heavy rain. And it's at this point that the jacket's zippers are frustrating, because the thick, rubberized seals along both sides mean you can't just yank up or down with one hand.
The same goes for the wrist zippers, which have a mesh liner that often jammed in the zipper when we weren't paying close attention. On the positive side, the wrist openings do allow for extra ventilation, as well as layering options for gloves.
The long tail, held in place with a silicone gripper, adds a welcome bit of protection down the lower back. While the design isn't a traditional road cut, the benefit is certainly worth the aesthetic diversion.
At the neck, the high coverage works wonders for retaining body heat, and the soft, contoured fabric at the back and the zipper garage at the front keep the fit comfortable when zipped all the way up.
Finally, reflective piping and large reflective logos across the piece ensure visibility.
In all, only the stubborn zippers hold the jacket back from being a perfect layer for road riding in the rain.
