Pearl Izumi Elite Barrier WxB Jacket - Waterproof (For Men)
Closeouts. Pearl Izumi's Elite Barrier WxB jacket does it all without weighing you down! A waterproof breathable membrane and fully taped inner seams lock out the weather; three-layer stretch fabric won't restrict your movement; and thermo-regulating technology in the body helps keep heat close in the cold.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Kayakkid from vermont on Thursday, May 8, 2014Nice Jacket and fits well except bit tight when zipped to the neck area.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Track Kid from NYC on Wednesday, April 30, 2014Pro's-This jacket is totally wind and water proof. The high collar makes this jacket great on cold windy days. The fit is very real. I am 5'7" 140lb, w/ an athletic build the medium fits my comfortably.
Con's- This jacket does not ventilate well.
Reviewed by PacNW Hiker from Washington State on Sunday, February 16, 2014Fit is true to size but these jackets fit slim. I was hoping to be able to layer more underneath, but temperature control is good with just a base layer and thermal layer. The pit zips are a nice feature and help exhaust excess heat. The quality of this jacket is first rate. I'd like to buy the hood so I have total protection. Only down side is the black color which doesn't stand out on the road; it does have ample reflective trim, however.
Reviewed by Freddy Felt from Columbus, OH on Tuesday, February 4, 2014First of all, kudos to Sierra Trading Post for their return/exchange policy - I carefully read all the reviews and sizing comments about this jacket and ordered a Medium but when it arrived it was far too snug (I am 5'11" and ~175 pounds) even without my extra" winter padding. I contacted Sierra Trading Post customer service and they were able to snag one of the few remaining Larges and did a seamless exchange for me. Unfortunately I have been caught in the throes of polar vortex and too much snow to get out for a ride to test this jacket out but the materials and functionality look fantastic. I did not look that closely at the product details but mine did not come with the detachable hood (don't know if they are usually sold as separates) but not much of an issue since I have a helmet cover for rainy rides.
Reviewed by Oger from NorCal on Sunday, January 20, 2013Great jacket, good vents cut cold air great. Awesome price with the STP discounts.
5'10" 155lbs. Medium is what I went with and very happy
