    New question here. Looking for Gore Oxford Lightweight Windproof Jacket-SIZE MEDIUM

    Hi all. I am looking for a Gore Oxford Lightweight Windproof Jacket-SIZE MEDIUM.

    I bought one from this dealer on e-bay but it seems a bit too large. Now he is out of stock.
    I found just one MEDIUM at:
    but they do not ship or sell to the USA.
    Anybody have one they want to part with or any of my UK neighbors have any creative ideas?

    talk to Lou at foxwear (

    He can make a totally custom jacket (to your measurements, with/w/o pockets, reflective striping, etc) out of Polaratec fabrics (power shield, power dry, ....)
    In light , mid, heavy wt thicknesses and several color choices.

    I like a power shield on the front chest, and front of the arms. With a little rolled over the top of the shoulder. Then power dry on the back, sides, under the arms and back of the arms.

    Power shield is a softshell fabric that is 98% windproof and beads water pretty well. Power dry is a pretty breathable fabric. For mtb riding my midweight power shield is usually overkill unless its really cold and windy. A light weight powershield might be better.

    His prices are a fraction of arcterx, patagonia, etc.
