Thank you for your feedback.
This was a Christmas gift to my son, and he gave it a try over Christmas break.
The combination of fabric, fit and zippers I am very comfortable in putting this on long rides between 32 and 55.
And, I am glad that I have this jacket for just those occasions.

This review is for the Gore Phantom 2.0 Windstopper SO Jacket in Neon Yellow. First of all, I'm 6' 3" and 212 lbs. I ended up ordering the XXL after trying on an XL in-store. The XXL is closer-fitting (not tight) in the shoulders with a little more room everywhere else. Don't think I'd be able to layer anything under the XL so the XXL is perfect for me. As has been mentioned in other reviews, the short jersey sleeves under the long-sleeves are a little tight but not restrictive or uncomfortable at all. Material is soft and the neon yellow is very bright. Zipping on and off the sleeves is relatively easy with two zippers on each side.

During a ride to work last week, I started in the dark with temperatures around 40 degrees. I wore a sleeveless Nike Dri-Fit shirt underneath and a backpack over the top. Stayed warm for the full hour-and-a-half. Looks like mid- to low-30's tomorrow and I'm not going to add anything. I think with a long-sleeved thermal undershirt I'd be good into the 20's. On the ride home, temps were up to about 55 but cooling off. I zipped off the sleeves and was fine as the temperature dropped. The wind-stopping ability is really impressive.

All-in-all, I would highly recommend this jacket.

I was looking for a jacket that would be suitable for cold weather riding in California, which means temperatures in the range of 35-60°F (2-15°C). The jacket had to be versatile enough to be useful in not-so-cold conditions without causing me to overheat, but toasty enough to keep me warm when the temperatures plunge.

I considered a couple of jackets, including the well-reviewed and ever-popular Pearl Izumi Elite Barrier Jacket, but I skipped it because the water-proof shell causes me to overheat quickly, despite having a breathable back. Almost all jackets with that type of material make me feel muggy and damp inside. For that reason, I narrowed my choices to breathable, soft-shell materials, ones similar to Gore WindStopper (not GoreTex, as that one's for rain).

Of the different Gore Bike Wear jackets made with WindStopper, the Phantom 2.0 struck a good balance of form and function. It has three rear stretchy pockets to carry essentials and detachable sleeves to dump heat but keep your core warm. I thought I'd miss the front pocket for personal electronics, but so far I've done without.

The jacket has kept me warm in 40°F temperatures, with only a short-sleeved jersey as my sole "base" layer and the jacket as my outer layer. It did very well on descents, blocking wind effectively. The neck collar isn't too snug that it blocks wind completely, but it also doesn't let wind seep in too easily. About the only time I've had to unzip the front to dump heat is during sustained climbs. This will be suitable for all but the most inclement of weather.

The detachable sleeves are a nice idea, but I think they can be improved on. The zippers can't be used as ventilation to dump heat. There are two zippers on each sleeve surrounding the armpits.

This is a great jacket. It has sleeves that can detach using zippers. It has pockets on the back. Its very good at blocking the wind. Great alone in ~50-60 degree weather, great as an outer layer in colder weather.

The only weird thing is that the zipper on mine is left handed, meaning to attach the zipper you actually hold it in your left hand and bring it to the right. Perfect if you are left handed. As a right hander, I got use to it pretty quick and it doesn't bother me anymore.

The service I got from Competitive Cyclist was excellent...!

This is about the jacket itself....This was to be my second jacket, as I love the first one, and wanted this color for safer riding on cloudy low-visibility days..

I ordered exactly the same size and model# as I've had and loved for nearly a year, and when I got it, I first thought that maybe my Christmas/Holiday dining experiences had caught up with me...;-)

Upon closer examination and measuring, I determined that Gore is now cutting this jacket to a much, much tighter fitting standard than previously...The body? Part me, part the jacket...But the arms were now so tight I could not wear my skin-tight arm warmers under the sleeves, and I know my arms are not any chubbier than they were...!

By comparing the seam-to-seam measurements with the new and old jackets, I was amazed to find out that the cut was between .5" and 1" narrower in all dimensions....overall length of the arms and body was exactly the same, so I'm sure I had a 'large' to compare....

I'm now forced to find another jacket.....the XL size was just longer and had longer arms...the body did fit well, but the overall length was for someone much taller than my 5'9"s.....!

I have used this jacket on only a few rides so far but I really like it. It is very comfortable and the Windstopper fabric on the front really does the job. The back is better ventilated so I don't overheat. I wore this on a 109 mile ride where I encountered about a 30F temperature difference (early start plus going through San Francisco). In the warm sections the ability to zip off the sleeves and open the chest was great but having the sleeves and closing it up made all the difference riding through wind and fog.

The cut works great on the bike with sufficiently long arms and enough tail to keep me covered in back. The rear pockets work well and provide a place to put the sleeves while riding.

I think the "breathability" of this jacket is what really makes the difference. Most windbreaker or rain oriented jackets end up becoming a portable body steamer after a bit of riding. The ability to have a high level of evaporation through the back makes it very comfortable.

This jacket is not the type that rolls up into a small ball and disappears into a jersey pocket. While it is definitely not heavy, it is also not compact enough to easily stow in a jersey pocket. I plan to wear the jacket the whole day when I wear it, but this is made much easier for "spring conditions" by being able to remove the sleeves. The main zipper seems backward, but I have adjusted to that. The sleeves zip on and off easily, but it takes a bit of looking at the sleeve to determine if it is the right or left one.

I am very impressed with this jacket and look forward to using it for both road and trail riding.
