Pearl IzumiELITE Escape Jersey - Men's

You've earned it.

You've worked a long day, but you don't have any soccer games to coach or school plays to attend this evening. All you want to do on this spring evening is get out of rush hour traffic and get home to your bike. When, at last, you turn into the driveway, run into the house and throw on the Pearl Izumi ELITE Escape Long Sleeve Jersey. Perfect for warm days that turn into brisk evenings, the ELITE Escape will ward off a chill when you're getting warmed up, without becoming stiflingly hot after your first climb. Pearl Izumi's highly breathable In-R-Cool fabric is responsible for that, and when coupled with the fabric's UPF 50+ protection, it allows the jersey to work as a sun-shielding summer jersey when you want to give your skin a break after months of riding in harsh, sunny conditions.

Good cool weather top

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

This top is good for slightly cool days and arm coverage to protect from the sun. I have worn it a fair bit during the in-between seasons. It fits true to size, and the forearms are cut a little generous making it easy to roll them up. I liked it enough that I bought a 2nd jersey, and have worn it on days into the mid-80's for sun protection--the fabric breathes well in the dry desert heat and is quite comfortable.

Arms too big, body too small

  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: Small

I rarely have issues with sizing on this brand, but this one has to go back: sleeves are much too lose, and body is much too tight/short.
