How do I know if my jacket is waterproof?
Water-resistant jackets and pants usually have a DWR (durable water repellent) finish on the exterior that repels moisture and keeps you dry in light rain or snow. If the jacket features a waterproof breathable membrane, laminate or other comparable waterproof technology, then it is usually considered waterproof.
How long will a Gore-Tex jacket last?
Even powerful Gore-Tex has a lifespan. For people that use their gear daily, this lifetime can range from three to five years while those who use less frequency can get close to 15 years out of their garments.
What should you not wear when cycling?
Rule #1 – you do NOT wear your underwear under cycling shorts. Having a pair of cotton underwear inside your cycling shorts negates all of the benefits provided (friction control, moisture management). If you have bib shorts or bib knickers, your cycling jersey goes OVER the bib straps, not under.
Is it OK to cycle in the rain?
Riding in the rain is more dangerous than riding in dry conditions for an obvious reason: slippery when wet. The road itself is slicker. Painted surfaces and metal road obstacles are like ice. It takes longer to stop and it’s easier to slide out, so you need to brake earlier and lighter, especially on wet descents.
What do pro cyclists wear in the rain?

What are the disadvantages of Gore Tex?
One drawback of GORE–TEX is that you need to keep it clean to keep it waterproof—and clean it properly. Over time, as perspiration from your body escapes out through the material, it can cause a buildup of surfactants (detergent-like chemicals) that reduces the effectiveness of the waterproofing.
Is Gore Tex the best waterproof?
Re: so is gore–tex actually the best material out there.. Gore, eVent, Neoshell, they are all waterproof and do a great job of keeping you dry.
How long does Gore Tex boots stay waterproof?
Gore-tex is guaranteed to be waterproof FOREVER. In my experience though, most waterproof membranes in boots will wear out in 1-2 years of daily use. Most of the time it is right above the toes where it creases when you walk.
