Customer Reviews Of:
Pearl Izumi ELITE Barrier Convertible Jacket (For Women)
Closeouts. When the weather changes on your ride, you'll be glad you zipped up the Peal Izumi ELITE Barrier convertible jacket before heading out. Its removable sleeves stow easily in one of three zip pockets for when it warms up, and its ELITE Barrier fabric offers protection from wind and water when conditions go south.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Justknow from Kentucky on Thursday, October 5, 2017I love this jacket. So far haven't used it as a vest but that time of year is not here yet. The best qualities are that it is lightweight yet wind resistant. It is compact and folds up to require very little space for traveling. Easily fits into my small daypack with plenty of room left. It is great when I ride my scooter in the early morning. Will also be great when I ride my bike or run when the weather gets a little cooler.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Jules from St. Louis, Mo on Thursday, February 16, 2017I have used this jacket a handful of times, and it's a great performer in the wind. It is very lightweight, seems delicate, but well made and functional with zip-off arms that can be unzipped partially for ventilation, or detached completely to be stashed in the back pocket. I'm 5'3", 115, 34B and the xs wasn't restrictive at all. (in the yellow anyway)
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Annabelle from California on Thursday, November 24, 2016Sent it back because it's not what I wanted
Reviewed by high desert gal from Oregon on Monday, November 14, 2016I can't evaluate this jacket as an experienced cyclist, but it seems as if it would serve my purpose. I'm 5'9" tall, 145 lbs and proportionate. I normally wear a size M to L depending on the fit I want. I bought this jacket in the large so I could have movement in the shoulders and although it fit pretty well in the bust and shoulders, I could hardly zip the jacket over my hips with no layers underneath. I returned it for an XL hoping that it will fit both in shoulders, bust and hips.
