FUSION 2.0 GORE-TEX® Active Jacket
Fusion 2.0 Jacket. I've waited a long time for the right jacket.
I worked in a high end retail recreation store for 15 years. I've had access to every reputable company out there. But no one ever made a jacket that had all the features I was looking for, until now. (I search this jacket out. I first saw it in Europe. No one in this state carries the jacket). I live in a mountain resort where Mountain biking is the dominate biking sport. Cool weather riding is part of the norm here, except July, August. I don't question the Gore-Tex waterproofness. I did question the "breathability". We just had the warmest day of the year (so far). 60 degrees. I took this jacket out to test the "Breathability" of the new active technology. I was not disappointed. We are still skiing, and still have snow on the ground. (April 7) I was able to hammer out a long ascent on the road bike, then turn and come down, all while keeping my body temperature at the ideal level. This jacket breathes extremely well. Only complaint. Zippers are a little too tight first few times out.

It fits me when others didn't plus it works as advertised.
If the jacket does not fit then it's not going matter how technical it is. I am 6' 2" at 180 lb. with long arms and have had issue with finding clothing that fits. I am now super stoked that the cut of this jacket (Gore Bike) works for my length & body weight. The fit works for me on the bike in the drops without a gap between my gloves and the end of the sleeve.
It's worked as promised keeping me dry and warm in rain and wind including sideways windy downpours. I'll be coming back to Gore Bike for future purchases.

Another GREAT FIND
The jacket is smart looking. I love the sleek design and the easy zippers. Just what I expected.
