The Pearl Izumi ELITE Escape Jersey brings classic, color-block styling to neighborhood coffee jaunts and scenic double centuries alike. Featuring a streamlined fit, technical fabrics, and contrasting colorways, this jersey works hard to keep you cool out on the road.
Made with Pearl Izumi's ELITE Transfer In-R-Cool fabric with Ice-fil technology and Direct Vent panels, the ELITE Escape whisks moisture away from your skin, dries quickly, and absorbs odors to keep you fresh and comfortable on hot summer days. The sleeve and shoulder panels feature coldblack technology for extra cooling benefit and protection from the sun.
The ELITE Escape Jersey includes the usual loadout of three rear pockets that are further supported with additional stow pockets, allowing room for spare tubes, your favorite homemade ride snacks, a camera to document your adventures, warmers, and a wind vest. A full-length zipper provides ample ventilation options, and reflective elements help increase visibility to motorists in low light conditions.

Pearl Izumi makes great kit. This piece further confirms that. Light, thin, comfy, & sharp looking. I love it.
Their Elite line is worth paying a bit more.
Although this one is "Elite Escape" and not "Elite Pursuit" (designed to be more race fit), it does fit snug and the arm cuffs are small enough not to be flapping around. So, you get a race fit without the race price. ;-)
I'm 5'10", 150lbs, 36" chest, & 30" waist and this top fits like it was tailored for me. Love it.
