Pearl Izumi ELITE Barrier Cycling Jacket - Convertible (For Men)
Closeouts. The well-ventilated Pearl Izumi ELITE Barrier cycling jacket holds its own in high wind and light rain, and it converts from a jacket to a vest if your ride heats up. Just stash the sleeves in the generous back pocket. Plenty of reflective detailing, too.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Jai Rawat from California on Tuesday, March 6, 2018Really good looking jacket. Good protection against wind and rain. Only two issues:
a) Zippers are nice but it is not easy to 'covert' this jacket into a vest. You can definitely not do it while riding
b) Don't know if it is specific to me, but the jacket makes a crackling noise when there is wind. I was listening to music while riding and thought there was some static in the music. Later I realized that it was the jacket making that noise!
Other than that I love the jacket.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Griff from Star Valley on Thursday, February 1, 2018This is a nice jacket with nice features. Usually Pearl Izumi cycling apparel fits me well in a medium. For some reason this is too snug. Unfortunately I had to send it back. For reference, I am 5'9" with a 40" chest.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Vic from British Columbia on Friday, December 15, 2017This is a great product for a range of activities. It is light, compact and well ventilated. As mentioned by other reviewers, this jacket does fit a bit small. I am usually a small but I purchased a medium and the fit was perfect.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by simonchansm from - on Tuesday, October 17, 2017I like its design, worth the penny.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Bnap from Michigan on Sunday, August 21, 2016I am an average medium. With this jacket I could hardly put it on and could not get close to zipping it.
Not meant an average built
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Anonymous from Pasadena on Saturday, August 6, 2016but too small
Verified Buyer Reviewed by AvidRunner&Cyclist from Florida on Tuesday, February 23, 2016I usually wear a medium jersey, but purchased this in a large. It fits a little loose in the chest, but is correctly for reaching out with long arms on a road bike.
