Cycling jackets are a big investment, both in terms of economics and preference. If you've a fall-weight jacket that fits you perfectly, then it's a minor tragedy when you have to switch to your winter-weight jacket that hangs loosely or simply doesn't fit well. After all, in cold-weather riding, comfort is already at a premium, so it's a shame to sacrifice fit for function. The Gore Bike Wear Phantom Jacket's removable sleeves address both of these concerns, alternating between a short-sleeve Windstopper top for fall and spring conditions and a long-sleeve jacket when winter rolls in -- essentially giving you two jackets that fit the same way for the price of one.
The Phantom features Gore's venerable Windstopper Soft Shell fabric. The Soft Shell construction is a touch heavier than Gore's similar Active Shell fabric, owing to a difference in lining. Active Shell uses a thin, mesh-like scrim for wind protection without adding undue warmth and weight while the Soft Shell incorporates a plush, soft lining that's thicker for insulation in cold weather while still providing the wind-resistance for which Windstopper is named. Literally windproof.
Windstopper Soft Shell is also water-resistant and wicks moisture away from your skin, so you're protected from moisture both inside and out. Windstopper is stretchy. This permits a full range of movement, whether you're stretched over the hoods or reaching down into the drops.
With a zip-zip the raglan sleeves come off, exposing short, soft sleeves and converting the Phantom to a jacket that's appropriate for fall or spring. Going even further into protective design features, Gore included a zippered underflap at the rear hem to protect you from wheel-spray on wet days. Elastic bindings on the cuffs and hem keep the jacket in place, and three rear pockets provide enough storage for all your essentials plus the sleeves if conditions require you to remove them mid-ride. Reflective elements on all sides of the jacket increase help keep you visible in low-light conditions.
