Karolyn S.wrote a review of Pearl Izumi Elite Barrier Convertible Women's Jacket on October 25, 2011
I bought an earlier version of this jacket in 2007. It went with me on bike trips from Greece to Maine but finally gave out. I'm hard on zippers and just caught it on something and ripped it out. Ordered a new version right away. It arrived a couple of weeks ago and it is even better than the original. Fabric is softer and is more breathable. The yellow is truly screaming with lots of reflective bits. I love it. It looks great and the cut is perfect. Not too large and not so form fitting that I can't layer appropriately underneath. This really is a piece that anyone who rides in cooler to cold weather should not do without. Lots of pockets and love, love, love the zip off sleeves. I wear this when the temps are between 40-60. Good for drizzly conditions, too.
