Minimalist protection.

Equipped for rainy commutes and drizzly training rides, the Pearl Izumi Men's Elite WxB Jacket offers minimalist protection from the elements. Its 2.5-layer membrane sheds light-to-moderate showers, while breathing extraordinarily well (30k breathability) to combat built-up perspiration and the inevitable cold, clammy feel that follows. Its waterproof front zip and fully sealed seams prevent the intrusion of outside moisture from seeping inside and dampening your inner layers.

This low-profile jacket is designed to comfortably fit over thicker layers for proper thermo-regulation. It efficiently packs down for increased stashability, fitting in your jersey's back pocket for deployable protection from the elements. Moreover, you'll find its highly visible design uses bright bursts of color and reflective accents for increased safety when you're riding after dark.

Loose fit without ventilation

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

The material and length of this jacket is fine, but the body is quite loose (I've ordered a large size. I'm 5'11, 168lbs). Similar to others' review, the lack of ventilation is a problem if you ride in the rain.

Great color, poor ventilation

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Large

Only used this once on a 30 degree New England day andwas very disappointed. Fit is decent in the body but sleeves are extremely long. The main complaint isn’t breathability or lack there of. There are zero vents and I had the jacket pretty much totally open to get air. Which you can’t do in a rainstorm so pretty much defeats the entire purpose of this jacket. Can’t believe Pearl would design such a bright popping Pink jacket without putting vents anywhere. You could not ride with this jacket if you’re riding hard or you’d die of overheating which leads to freezing if you’re riding with it in cold weather.

Great rain jacket! Visible and stylish

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

First, this is a killer value! I have used this in the NW rain already. The fit is great. It is more of a race fit than club fit. This thing keeps you dry and is true to size. The color looks great and is highly visible. The only reason I am not giving this item 5 stars is because it needs additional vent zips. When I have winter gloves on it's much easier to leave vent zips open than fumbling for the main zipper.
