PSA: Want a Gore ShakeDry jacket at a discount?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Arc'teryx Norvon SL @ REI

I just got one. Hope to ski in it tomorrow, can't say much about it yet except the back is long enough to provide good coverage in the road position, and the arms move freely without the chest moving around, double polling won't be an issue. No pockets anywhere. Comes with a stuff sacks XL packs down smaller than an apple. I'll post more about breathability after I've had a hard ski in it.

Also, REI has a 365 day return policy, no restocking fee, etc. Good place to buy something you think will work, but aren't sure of.

The Gore Shakedry is pretty amazing, makes every other rain jacket seem like a plastic bag

The devil is in the details. Only the black/blue color is $209, and it's only available in XL.. The other two are $299.

I had you in mind when I posted this.

I like to go out and ride 40 to 50 miles, on scenic and new-to-me roads. Ideally over mountains. The weather can change drastically, and you really don't have much opportunity to bring extra clothes along on a road bike. So having the right clothes on when you leave is a pretty important part of cycling. You're somebody who understands this. Probably because you go out in weather that most of us would stay home for.

Thanks for the alternatives!

Didn't realize the sale price was only for XL. That's my size, I didn't bother to look at others, assumed the jacket itself was on sale in any size. Sorry to waste your time.

Yeah. A bit deceiving. Only the one color combo out of three is on sale and, but the time I looked, the one color combo that is on sale only had XL left.

No problem. Was worth the look anyway.

Everything is $224 when I look at the site.

Neon, red, blue, black in small, med, large... everything.

If you really want one then give them a call. They will likely honor the price.

I was referring to what is being offered on the REI site, hence my attempt to quote your $209 language.

I skied for just shy of 4 hours today, never took the jacket off. I did 2,300' of elevation gain, a 15 minute descent, a mix of intensity. Kept breaking a sweat, but got back to the car almost completely dry. I can take it off, clip the stuff sack to my belt, and forget it's there.

This is the best Nordic ski jacket I have, and I have many. Cross country skiing and road cycling have a profound carryover, anything breathable enough to ski in is plenty breathable enough to ride in.

All of this feedback is about the ShakeDry stuff, not the dead bird jacket. It fits me perfectly and the arms have enough mobility to double poll, but the stuff Timothy has found will work just as well, perhaps better, on the bike.
