Gore Bike Wear revolutionised cycling in foul weather in 1985 - the first GORE-TEX® bike jacket ever, is back as the C5 Shakedry now with colour! The latest GORE-TEX® Active SHAKEDRY fabric technology sets a new standard for all weather cyclists. Stay Light and Fast in Changable Conditions. The SHAKEDRY Jacket set a new standard for ultralight waterproof jackets and now it's available in a new colour option. Incredibly light and incredibly packable the ONE 1985 Gore-Tex SHAKEDRY Jacket is totally waterproof but highly breathable so you'll remain completely dry and comfortable, even in the worst of conditions.
SHAKEDRY technology means water doesn't penetrate the fabric - a few shakes and surface water is removed. Partial stretch cuffs seal the jacket at the arms while a comfortable soft face collar seals at the neck. The full double zip benefits from an inner storm flap, in contrast colours. The front zip pocket also acts as an integrated stuff sack; this jacket packs down remarkably small considering it's fully waterproof properties. The fit is looser than it's more race-orientated Gore One Active cousin so you'll be able to easily add layers underneath for colder days on the bike.Revolutionary Construction: The new Shakedry fabric technology eliminates the usual face fabric of standard waterproof garments, preventing absorption of water. You'll not experience the chilling effect that can result from a wetted out face fabric and the garment weight does not increase when riding in incessant rain.
Incredible Breathability: An extremely breathable construction reduces sweat accumulation and speeds vapour transport so you remain the perfect temperature and comfortably dry inside. Exceptionally Lightweight and Great Packability: One of the lightest waterproof, windproof, breathable GORE-TEX® products available.

Shake Dry Surface: Water simply beads on the surface without soaking in - a few quick shakes of the garment renders the surface dry and no wetting of the surface is allowed. It has to be seen to be believed! What's more this water repellency is permanent. No reproofing required for the life of the jacket.Top Features of the Gore C5 Gore-Tex SHAKEDRY 1985 Jacket.
