Lynnwrote a review of Pearl Izumi ELITE Barrier Convertible Jacket - Women's on December 23, 2019
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
This jacket was everything I had been looking for: vest with sleeves to add for a jacket, front pockets and a rear pocket, high vis, 2 way zipper, fits well. Unfortunately it isn't warm at all. Barely blocks any wind. I've ridden it from 40-70 degrees, with and without sleeves, with different jerseys underneath. It is good for high vis (I bought orange), not for warmth. If the material were thicker and blocked wind, and the shoulder area on the vest was solid, not mesh, it would be perfect. Really it is only good as a super thin layer.
