Great price for a Gore-tex Paclite cycling jacket (RRP Is £170, cheapest I can find elsewhere is £136). It should be much more breathable than my old Altura one which keeps the rain out but the sweat in.
Not black this time (unlike my Windstopper deals) - it's dayglo yellow to satisfy the safety conscious.

A few other bargains in the clearance section too (same code works on all clearance clothing). I ordered Altura liner gloves with touchscreen panels for £8.

What is the sizing like? True to size or order bigger sizes?
Cheers gone for this

Dunno about Paclite but the C3 range seems to be quite generous - I'm 6'1" 90kg and fit a large in the C3 Windstopper jackets, frequently an XL in other stuff (like Berghaus). I've order L and XL just in case, paid with Paypal so they'll refund my return postage on whichever doesn't fit.

They’re a more relaxed fit. I use them for winter commuting

Seriously? My £10 Halfords job doesn’t absorb any water and is fairly breathable you’d think this would be class at this price

I think it’s aimed at commuters like myself who will be both cycling and walking on their journey into work. I ride to the station, then walk to work at the other side

Fair enough. I'm happy with a heavier jacket for commuting and something lighter for training when you might want it in a pocket.

Think I'll go for a gabba.

I cut the hood off my Gore Softshell because I wasn’t keen, you wouldn’t even notice from looking at it

According to the item description it is: "A favourite choice for the commute to work, a ride to the coffee shop, or to run errands on a day that serves up spring rain showers, this Gore C3 Gore-Tex Paclite Hooded Jacketis completely waterproof"

As with all jackets any water repellent qualities will gradually wear off, particularly after washing, and then it will need reproofing. However, Gore claim their water-repellency is reactivated after following their washing and drying procedures: gore-tex.com/blo…ear

Gabbas are great for changeable conditions but they don't pack down like a dedicated rain shell and do let water through. If you're going out in heavy rain a dedicated shell is much better. Tempted by wheelbase.co.uk/pro…et/ - the new fabric in these isn't bonded to another layer so is a lot more breathable than traditional Gore Tex fabrics and it packs up very small.

"Spring rain showers" and "completely waterproof".

Okay.
Maybe I should've put more info in the deal...

This is Gore's C3 Paclite jacket.

C is for cycling (they do an R range for runners/recreation).

3 is the commuter range (5 for sportives n similar, 7 for competitive cycling). So it's a relaxed fit and intended to be worn on and off the bike. Hence the hood (which isn't removable but folds away). It's tough enough that you can use a backpack with it.

Paclite is Gore's lightweight, waterproof fabric. So it packs away pretty small.

It's completely waterproof and being Goretex it's breathable. Goretex is much more breathable than cheaper waterproof fabrics (like my current Altura Nightvision jacket) but not as breathable as non-waterproof fabrics (like the Windstopper jackets I posted deals on recently).
As others have said there's now an even light fabric called "Shakedry" - there are Shakedry jackets in the C5 and C7 ranges, they're more expensive but lighter and closer fitting. Shakedry will be quickly wrecked by a rucksack (because why would a competitive cyclist wear a rucksack?).
Paclite fabric is used by several manufacturers and is highly regarded. Like any waterproof fabric, if it's absorbing water it's because the coating on the fabric that causes water to bead up has worn out (or the jacket's dirty). Wash it in TechWash or similar and reproof with TX-Direct. Tumble drying or a cool iron may also help. Do NOT use biological detergents or fabric conditioners - they'll destroy the coating and cause the fabric to wet out so it can't breathe any more.

What? I have two Paclites and they are waterproof. I wear them during the worse of winter commuting!

Complete tripe, at least for GTX based apparel. In fact you must wash it from time to time or it stops breathing effectively and turns into a filthy bin-bag.
Mine arrived yesterday.
Incredibly light, packs very small. Kept me dry in a downpour on the way home from work - did a much better job than my old Altura Nightvision at dealing with sweat.
Only criticisms; it could be slightly longer and the hood doesn't pack away (I just rolled it inside the collar when I didn't want it but there's no way of fastening it there).
Size L is plenty big enough for me (6'1", 90kg) so the XL will be going back (unless anyone wants it).
