There's a storm brewing on the horizon.

When the forecast calls for sunshine and a warm breeze, but all you can see are ominous clouds on the horizon, it's best to play it safe and toss the Pearl Izumi Elite Pursuit WXB Jacket in your back pocket. The Men's Elite Pursuit WxB Jacket is a lightweight option for protection from the rain, while maintaining ultimate breathability so you can stay comfortable when you're pedaling up long and tedious canyons.

Made from Pearl Izumi's WxB fabric, the Elite Pursuit WXB Jacket provides a 2.5-layer construction with a waterproof membrane that seals out storms, and features a charcoal backing that assists in breathing, pulling sweat away from your skin as soon as it starts to bead so you can stay dry inside. It is constructed with fully sealed seams to keep moisture from sneaking in through the cracks when you get stuck in serious downpour with no shelter in sight.

The back is designed to keep the storm out, too, with an extended drop-tail hem with an elasticized hem that keeps wheelspray and drafty breezes from sneaking inside. The jacket is cut for optimal comfort on the bike, but features a bit more give than Pearl Izumi's PRO line, so you have the space for a few layers when the temperature starts to dip. Grey and rainy days tend to lend themselves to low visibility, so the jacket comes in two colors with BioViz options for enhancing daylight visibility, and reflective details to keep you safe when its dim out.
