Not long ago, riding in chilly, drizzly weather meant breaking out a plastic-feeling jacket that would quickly turn your microclimate into something resembling a mid-summer tropical rainforest, which kind of defeated the point of having weather protection in the first place. More recently, options like the Pearl Izumi Men's P.R.O. Pursuit LS Wind Jersey have addressed that issue with wind and water-resistant fabrics that also let your body breathe to keep you comfortable and dry throughout the ride.
This jersey features panels of Pearl Izumi's Softshell Lite fabric, which provides soft, stretchy weather protection without impacting freedom of movement. The main body is made from Pearl Izumi's P.R.O. Transfer In-R-Cool fabric for lightweight moisture management that works hard to keep you dry no matter the ride intensity.
The P.R.O. Pursuit LS Wind Jersey includes three rear pockets, perfect for carrying spare tubes, your favorite cookie snacks, and a camera to document your adventures. As an added bonus, a full length zipper provides ample ventilation options and makes for easy removal at mid-ride pit stops while reflective elements increase visibility to other road users in low light conditions.

- Q & A
Fits small and does not stretch
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
- Fit: Runs small
- Size Bought: XXL
While I like the idea and the overall appearance of the jersey, it lacks stretch. If feels more like a jacket than a jersey. While I can wear other PI jerseys in XXL, this one was tight across the shoulders and under the arms, and it does not stretch or give there. Simply, it was uncomfortable, and I returned it.
Great cold weather jersey
This jersey does a great job of providing warmth, while not being overly hot or moist. I fully recommend it!
