Hi y’all, in the market for a Gore H5? Well come on down, cause I have a very lightly used jacket that could be yours for the low, low cost of $175 + shipping. Bought at the end of 2019, used a few times (what’s that thing in ’20, ’21 that’s kept us from doing long hikes with potential rainy? oh yeah….) and now I feel bad about owning this thing that’s not getting used. It looks brand new, has zero cuts/tears/abrasions and the permanent DWR is still…permanent.
I basically used it for a (hilariously overwrought) backup jacket for some bike trips that never actually saw some rain.
So yeah, want one and fit Gore’s classification of ‘medium?’ Hit me up! But seriously, it’s a very specific interpretation of medium, so do yourself a favor and double check measurements before buying it- I’m 5’9″ and 160 lbs and it’s not tight, but I can only fit a thinner warm layer under it (Rab Xenon.) PS- this is the jacket Andrew Skurka reviewed and loved, the slightly heavier weight Shakedry that’s rated for backpack usage.
