GORE-TEX Windstopper

WINDSTOPPER® Active Shell

WINDSTOPPER® Active Shells are the lightest, most packable garments offering total windproofness, maximum breathability and water resistance. WINDSTOPPER® Active Shells keep you comfortable for enhanced performance during highly aerobic activities.

GORE-TEX Membrane

Without the Windstopper® membrane:

The blue areas show that this fabric cannot withstand wind. Although outside temperature remains the same, you will quickly start to feel cold. This is the windchill effect.

GORE-TEX Membrane

With the Windstopper® membrane:

The red areas show that the WINDSTOPPER® can block the wind. You remain comfortable and warm and can maintain your level of physical activity.

Measurable benefit: lower heart rate.

Direct comparison with other fabrics proves that during the most intensive stages of activity (e.g. cycling uphill), an athlete's heart rate is up to eight beats per minute lower with WINDSTOPPER® clothing than with less breathable fabrics.

Reviews for XENON 2.0 WINDSTOPPER® Active Shell Jacket

XENON 2.0 WINDSTOPPER® Active Shell Jacket 4.8 5 4 4
High quality jacket Great jacket. Quality is very good. Great fit, great look. Works great in the wind and rain. Only downside is I hoped it would pack a little smaller. July 19, 2014
The thinnest, windproof, breathable, water-resistant jacket! I have the luxury of owning all three Gore Xenon thermo jersey, AS jacket, and SO jacket. My opinion is that the Gore Xenon AS jacket is the only packable Xenon jacket and is suitable across the largest temperature range compared with the other Xenon products. All three Xenon jackets have very different windstopper materials with the Xenon AS best suited to someone who requires windblocking but yet high breathability. The Xenon AS has all the water resistance that anyone needs in light downpours. The active shell material seems paper thin and yet I've owned this jacket for over 2 years and the only reason it ripped was because I was rubbing the material between two fingers to try and get out a grease stain and tore the membrane...don't do what I did! The fit is very slim so only slender physiques should consider this jacket unless you size up. The stretchable sleeves fit so great over the wrist and over any pair of gloves without fiddling that I wonder why the Xenon thermo jersey or SO jacket don't do away with the zipper on the sleeves and go with the same type of sleeve.

Excellence personified The Active Shell fabric is a wonder. The product descriptor may describe this as a 'windproof' top but that sells the jacket short. It is damned. Near. Waterproof. It will only be defeated by torrential rain on account of the untaped seams. In spite of this the fabric continues maintain excellent breathability. I've also found myself a lot more blase about removing or even opening this jacket before uphill segments- happy to rely on the effective intrinsic ventilation of the fabric. It ranks among the most expensive showerproof jackets but in my mind the quality of construction and functionality justifies the expense. Be warned however, the cut is very slim fit- if you carry anything extra in your jersey (pockets or otherwise..) go one size up from normal. March 18, 2014
