As a bit of background I am a complete amateur to road bike riding - knee cartilage all packing up so running days are over and therefore I got my 25 year old road bike out to try to maintain fitness.
So all this bike clothing is new to me however I bought one of these jackets at a sale in Germany for 70 Euros (which I still thought was expensive not knowing what all this bike wear costs)and have been very pleased with the protection it gives. So far I have even ridden through heavy rain and a hail storm and although it says it is only showerproof I found that it kept my torso completely dry and warm - the rest of me was soaked through!

Very comfortable to wear and the usual acid test has been passed as I have just bought a second one for riding at home in the UK.

UPDATE

Apr 2015 - Still wearing this a lot but it is only shower resistant as claimed by manufacturer....heavy rain and then all of me is wet. All zips etc still working well but the Gore logo lettering came off over time.

A very light weight jacket with excellent breatheability - the inside of the jacket is always dry even after a vigorous ride to work when under layers are damp with sweat. Great protection from chilling winds, allowing you to stay warm with fewer layers.
The cut is well designed for cycling leading to a jacket that is very comfortable to wear. Folds into its own rear pocket for storage.
Although very pleased with the performance of the jacket, I think that it is expensive at full price. I purchased this jacket when it was reduced and feel that I got good value for my money.

its a simple jacket but it does the job very well. If you like to layer your clothing then this is the perfect top layer. Pretty much as good as a waterproof but more breathable. the mesh on the arms helps a lot to stop getting sweaty there. Size - I am 5'7" narrow build and i wear a large which sounds ridiculous and it is a little roomy but i don't like a tight fit. I tried on a medium too and that fitted well, with enough length in the arms (often not enough in jackets), a fairly snug fit. Anyone over my height I would say you need large.

...Just wish it breathed a little more - wonder how much the Active Shell actually contributes in practice. Excellent fit, well-made, stops the wind (Windstopper fabric actually works) and looks the part. The only downside is that the rear pocket is nigh-on impossible to access whilst moving, necessitating a stop with the commensurate rapid cooling down.
