Gore C3 Windstopper Vest review

Gore is the brand that pioneered many fabrics over the years used by many other clothing brands, so its Gore C3 Windstopper Vest – a gilet, to be clear – should be a good one for those chilly mornings

Gore C3 Windstopper
Great gilet but it isn't as well fitting as other around this price point
Cycling Weekly Verdict

The Gore C3 Windstopper Vest is a great gilet that'll do the job just fine, although I prefer the more refined fit of the likes of Castelli and its Perfetto.

Gore is one of the pioneers when it comes to outdoor clothing, especially in the cycling market. Many other cycling brands either have used Gore fabrics in the past and some still continue to do so today. The brand does make its own cycle clothing range too, including the Gore C3 Windstopper Vest I've tested here.

The Gore C3 Windstopper has a number of key attributes to make it a more than capable gilet for most cycling occasions, right the way through the winter into the summer months, but it is especially good for the springtime.
