This morning we talked with Gore Bike Wear about their latest off-road jacket called the Fusion and came away suitably impressed. The Fusion features “comfort mapping” which places the right materials in the right places for maximum comfort on the trail.
For example: did you know your kidneys need to stay warm? I certainly didn’t but the Fusion has you covered. You can see from the photo of the inside of the jacket the different materials but the outside looks completely consistent (see top image). Stretchy, vented fabric runs down the middle of the back of the jacket while all the seams are completely taped and waterproof.
The Fusion sorta reminds me of the self-drying, custom fitting jacket from Back to the Future II*. Apparently the future is now.
* Another 80s movie reference for our friend GoldenGoose.
