The collar on the Gore C5 Thermo Jersey is a thing of beauty. Really soft and comfortable. (Image credit: Josh Ross) Verdict The Gore Wear brand, with obvious access to some of the finest materials available, remains a sleeper brand to most people. With a wide range of year-round kits, the heritage of Gore remains cold and wet weather gear (although their summer range is quite nice). The Gore Wear C5 Thermo Jersey has been a great option for cold weather road, gravel and mountain biking this fall. As they’re a full Gore-Tex fabric they actually keep water out for a decent amount of time, even in the heaviest rain, and the adjustable cuff reduces draughts and sleeve leak. They breathe really well and dry relatively fast from inside out too, and they stay far more comfortable for longer than any other ‘waterproof’ glove we’ve used. That’s where the super-thin Shakedry cap comes in, keeping water off your head and out of your eyes, yet staying remarkably sweat free if the weather improves. Plus it’s so thin you don’t have to pull out your helmet pads or perch your lid on top of your head like the Pope. Who is Gore Wear? The GORE C5 Thermo Jersey and C5 Thermo Bib Tights+ offer impressive warmth and lightweight construction for winter cycling

Utah’s extended shoulder season has been perfect for testing thermal jerseys. With consistent temperatures ranging from 45-60 degrees, I have been testing a variety of long-sleeve thermal jerseys. The MAAP Training Thermal LS Jersey has been my go-to, but as temperatures have dropped slightly, the Gore C5 Thermo Jersey has jumped into the mix. All full Gore-Tex fabrics are covered by Gore’s 'Guaranteed to keep you dry' program under which it claims:

GOREWEAR C3 Gore-Tex® Infinium Thermo Jacket

There’s no actual Gore-Tex in play here but using a mix of stretch Windstopper fabrics with a lightly furry inside face keeps the worst of the weather off and keeps them comfortable on single-digit temperature days. A bit of fabric stretch combined with an accurate pre-formed cut keeps them very snug fitting too so there are no flappy fingers to get trapped in shifters. The silicone palm and finger prints add wet or dry grip, index finger and thumb are touchscreen-friendly and the thumb junction is reinforced for long days on the hoods.

I brought up arm warmers in the first section because that's exactly what this Gore C5 Thermo jersey feels like to me. There's the same level of compression in the arms and the same super soft brushed material that you find on the best arm warmers. Without extra weatherproofing features, that is also how I like to use this piece. Gore Wear is fundamentally a science and fabric performance company with a massive multi-industry portfolio which its bike gear is only a tiny, tiny part of. That’s why its text and presentation tends to have a similarly sciencey feel, but it’s easy to decipher without a doctorate. Gore Wear cycling clothing range explained Gore gives a number and letter code to every garment to show primary function and performance level.However, if you're of the more shapely persuasion and want something that performs extremely well without cutting off your circulation, this is an ideal option for you. The fit is true to size, with sensible arm widths and a perfect length for full splash coverage at the rear. Gore-Tex obviously has a very strong household brand name and it protects that with a very specific language. Here are translations of the keywords you need to know when navigating the range.
