Gear Talk / GORE-tex- breathable jacket with Removable Hood- Still made?
« on: November 12, 2010, 09:31:37 pm »
I am at ends wit, been searching without answers......

I have a 1981 REI gore-tex jacket that lost all of its repellant and would not fit me now anyway (used riding x-USA 1982, x-Pa 1983, and all NSCA 1985) and is now retired!

In 1996 or '97 I got both Bike-Nash and Performance gore-tex jackets. I returned B-Nash and have continued to use Perfomance to this day. It is still h2o repellant but zipper is failing!

The point I am making here is:

-Of all the G-tex and breathable rainjackets I see designed for bicycling specific use, there is NO detachable rain hood. A rainhood is good to have when you are riding. Also, hood helps in the rain when at camp, walking, and hanging around after the days ride.

-Is there a new, improved way of not using a rainhood?

-Why has this attachment been removed from raingear being sold? 

-Even more important- Where can I get a yellow refective Gore-Tex (breathable) rain-jacket that has a Tail, zippered arm-pits, and a zippered, detachable hood???

I have been searching for quite some time and honestly am so thankfull of your responses in advance.
