One 1985 GTX Shakedry Jacket - Men's by Gore Bike Wear
When Gore released its first Gore-Tex jacket, the Giro, three decades ago, it revolutionized wet-weather cycling apparel by pairing breathability with weather-blocking prowess. Although it came with a pretty price tag, this jacket gave us a collective hope that the days of sweating bullets in the steamy microclimate of thick plastic rain capes could soon be in our rear view mirror.

In fact, Shakedry lives up to its billing because it literally shakes dry. Whether you're riding out from under the storm into welcoming sun or hungrily clopping into your favorite cafe, a quick shake expels water beads from the surface, freeing you from the inconvenience of cold, damp j...
