I'm a big fan of Pearl Izumi's P.R.O. line & own many pieces from this line. I am VERY picky about my winter cycling jackets: my all-time favorite is one from Etxeondo, which is the top end of the cycling jacket spectrum. So I had high expectations about this particular Pearl Izumi winter jacket for my cold weather rides: I am happy to report that this jacket not only met but exceeded my expectations.
The fit is trim: more trim than Pearl Izumi's standard winter cycling jackets for women (I own 2 others from their Select & Elite lines). It's a very flattering jacket that is fitted but that has enough room for a winter jersey + a base layer underneath. I especially appreciate the stylish princess seams as well as the lovely black-and-red color combo.
The jacket fits very well with long enough arms & body to fit the body well in the cycling position. I am 5'6" & typically wear a women's size 10: the size Large fit beautifully on my athletic figure.
If you can score this jacket in your size, grab it while it's available on Sierra Trading Post: it's a gem of a winter cycling jacket,

Bought this for my wife and she loves it! She wanted a lightweight jacket for cross country skiing on cold days - something more than a simple shell. This jacket fits the bill. She normally would wear a small, but based on other comments I went one size up. The medium was perfect!
