Gore Bike Wear Element Urban Windstopper Hooded Jacket - Men's

Commuting in the spring and summer is a pretty pleasant time for most of us cyclists -- the days are warm and inviting, the roads are dry, the sun casts its glow until late into the evening, and weather is on our side with little to no precipitation. It's when the seasons take a change for the colder that only the committed still saddle up and pedal their way to work. For those who do, or who yearn to give it a try, the Gore Bike Wear Element Urban Windstopper Hooded Jacket is a piece that helps make that grizzly weather bearable, so you can enjoy the ride long after other cyclists have turned in for the winter. Don't let the casual hoodie appearance fool you, Gore decks out this jacket with tech to surpass your usual road jersey and keep you warmer than your road kit can dream of. For rides that start out dank, wet, and dark, Gore sets you up with a softshell construction that prevents wind and rain from penetrating through and soaking your core when you're in the saddle, and a drop tail hem keeps you guarded from wheel spray. A minimalist hood lends you protection when you're off of the bike, and your helmet is no longer protecting you from the elements. Internal pockets decorate the jacket for stashing all of your essentials that you need to keep close to you, and dry, and with commuting in mind a wealth of reflective accents cover the sleeves, back, and front to enhance your visibility to the two-ton machines with whom we share the streets. A tailored cut offers a streamlined fit that allows for a base layer and jersey underneath, or thicker layer on cold days, without sacrificing a slim cut with minimal wind-flapping wrinkles.

October's Animal
Most commonly found in the tundra of Rocky Mountain National Park, the pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
