A barrier between you and the weather.

When inclement weather is on the horizon, slide into the versatile Pearl Izumi Elite Barrier Convertible Women's Jacket. With its removable sleeves, you can adjust to the conditions on hand, in real-time, so you're never caught out by a sneaky storm or surprise sunburst.

Pearl's Elite Barrier fabric sheds wind while providing light water-resistance for coverage during sudden storms. When the weather breaks, removing the sleeves and stashing them in the back pocket is a quick and easy solution to your coverage conundrum. Pearl also incorporates its Direct Vent extra-breathable panels around the underarms and back in order to provide extra ventilation to the core.

When things are a little chillier, the inner collar's micromesh lining adds a soft and warm sensation to the neck when fully zipped up. The full-length front zipper also does its part by featuring an internal draft flap and zipper garage to prevent discomfort from cold air and abrasive zippers. Additionally, adjustable hook-and-loop closures at the wrist and a one-handed elastic draw cord at the waist keep drafts out and your body heat in. Reflective details help keep you visible in low-light conditions, and the combination of zippered hand and drop-in back pockets keep your ride essentials accessible.

Versatile wind barrier, not wind-proof

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs small

Not warm alone, but is a great lightweight top layer to fleecy base + fleecy long-sleeve jersey for rides in upper-30s, sleeveless base for warmer days. I love the invisible-zippered pockets (two in front) with easy pulls, and the side-entry back pocket. Also like how compactly this jacket folds down and slips into jersey pocket if temps climb. Medium would pull in shoulders. Large is roomy enough but not billowy. Sleeves can zip off to turn this jack into a vest.

Stiff in arms

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

I have an older version of this jacket and it is much more comfortable than the new one I bought. This one is quite stiff where the zippers are thus making it uncomfortable. Also runs smaller than previous verson.

  • Size Bought: Small

Gave this as a gift. She loved it, but the sizing was odd for her. I ordered a small, which is her typical size for women's jackets. The sleeves and back were a bit long for her, while the chest was tight. That being said, she has a somewhat compact build. This jacket would be great a woman with long arms and a slender profile.

Great lightweight jacket!!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: medium

This is a great lightweight jacket and i love the vest option. I ordered one a little bigger so I could wear a warmer top underneath on cold rides. Sometimes jackets are just too tight when you layer.
