- Which gore tex waterproof? C3 or C5?
I’ve crashed and shredded my waterproof jacket.
It’s time for a new one. My last two gore tex ones have been ace. Last one was a pack lite, the current one has been a bit heavier weight with a silvery lining.
Looks like they don’t make it any more so the closest replacements are
A c3 pack lite
Or a c5.
There is quite a difference in price. £100 vs £230.
What’s the difference between the two and any recommendations for which one to go for?
It’s for riding and wandering about. The last two waterproofs have lasted me 10 years.Posted 6 months agowhatyadoinsuckaMember
If you are buying gore shop around blacks and millets often stock certain products and 20% codes seem to be available frequently,
Best place for gore wear is amazon
That jacket is £166 in a large castor grey.
I’ve had tonnes of gore wear off amazon, a red and a blue active shell windstopper for £55-60, trail gloves for £9 (£39 on wiggle etcPosted 6 months agoEdwardHSubscriber
The C3 is a more of a neat fit and the C5 a bit on the looser side also the C5 has a chest pocket whereas there is no chest pocket on the C3.
I wanted the fit of the C3 but features of the C5. In the end I went for the C5. It’s a teeny bit flappy when up at speed.Posted 6 months ago
Well, I’ve found a very orange Scott jacket for £50 so I’m going to give that a go.
