All the fun is in the pursuit.

Riding in so-called perfect weather sounds ideal, but it has a down side, too -- hot, sunny conditions can lead to overheating and fatigue. Pearl Izumi developed the Elite Pursuit Short Sleeve Jersey for those who do a lot of riding in cloudless, shade-less environments, designing it specifically to reflect the sun's rays to keep you cooler and fresher. 

The Elite Pursuit Jersey features the lightweight Elite Transfer fabric that offers exceptional moisture management, while the special In-R-Cool technology acts as a reflective element to reduce surface temperatures on the fabric by up to 35 degrees Fahrenheit in direct sunlight and provide UPF-50-rated protection. In addition to its wicking abilities, the Elite Transfer fabric dries quickly for maximum comfort.

To further ensure your comfort in the blazing sun, Pearl Izumi has also placed Direct-Vent mesh panels under the arms to offer extra ventilation and prevent moisture build-up. Easy all-out cooling has been made possible by the full length zipper.

Three back pockets have been provided on the Elite Pursuit Jersey so that you can bring along a repair kit, wallet, gel packs and CO2 cartridges. A fourth sweat-proof pocket keeps your phone accessible and safe from damaging moisture. Extra support at the back pockets will keep them from sagging when fully loaded for a five-hour ride, and an elasticized gripper on the back keeps the jersey fully in place. The usual well-placed Pearl Izumi reflective elements will help keep you visible at dusk and later.

The Pearl Izumi Elite Pursuit Short Sleeve Jersey comes in True Red/Black, Black/Yellow, White/Black, Black/White and True Blue/White. It is available in Small through XX-Large.

How to Measure:
For best results, take measurements over your underwear.
Measure under your arms, around the fullest part of your chest.
Natural Waist:
Measure around your natural waistline, keeping the tape a bit loose.
Measure around the fullest part of your body at the top of your legs.
Using pants that fit well, measure the crotch seam to the bottom of the leg.

Great Jersey. Sizing chart is right on and fits like a glove. No complaints and keeps cool in the hot Colorado sun.

Great jersey except for the pockets

This jersey is well made, great looking, fits well (38.5 chest = Medium), has excellent ventilation, and dries quickly. Only problem is the pockets sag even with the lightest contents. They are also cut wide, so things that you might want to stand up vertically fall over. Other than that, it's a go-to.

Another PI winner...

Bought this elite pursuit version in true red/black and the elite black/black version. Both in XXL. The fit is outstanding and the material is top of the line. I wish there were more colors available in XXL, I'd buy them all. 6'00", 220 lb muscular build and the arms actually fit me unlike most Euro jerseys. I wear XXL in Primal & PI, 3XL in Castelli just for comparison's sake.
