    Comments about Pearl Izumi Elite Barrier Jacket:

    I bought this jacket for touring, i wanted to be seen on the road and this jacket does it well. It is lightweight and is okay under a light shower, under a heavy rain you will get wet but if you want waterproof you better get a poncho. If the weather gets too bad, I take a break.
    All in all, this jacket does protect me against wind and weather and more important, you can't miss me the road.

      Comments about Pearl Izumi Elite Barrier Jacket:

      I use this for commuting in New England weather where it can be hot and raining at the same time, inhibiting proper rain ware.
      It's light, it makes me visible and is not too hot, but the fabric feels like it may tare easily, it didn't yet, so it may just be a feeling.
      It does ride up a little bit up front giving a bit of a beer belly though and is relatively snug, so if you want to ware something warm underneath you may want to go a size or two up

        Comments about Pearl Izumi Elite Barrier Jacket:

        I use this jacket for cold days on the mountain and night rides in the city as a high visibility jacket. It is extremely lightweight. I´m 178 cm tall and weight 76 kgs,the medium size fits me excellent. If you want a little baggie fit, try with 1 more size.

        The jacket is easy to folds and it doesn't take up much space in your backpack.

        The color is GREAT and makes me highly visible to traffic. It will protect you agains the wind and a light rain.

                Comments about Pearl Izumi Elite Barrier Jacket:

                I bought this for mountain biking, but you can use it for road biking and even just as a basic rain jacket.

                It's extremely lightweight - I was surprised at how light it is. Which is good because you can fold up the jacket in quite literally fits like a tennis ball in your hand. So it doesn't take up much space in your hydration pack.

                It won't protect against heavy rain, but on a day with some light drizzle, or a cold misty morning, it's great for that.

                The lightness comes at the cost of durability. One crash and I'm pretty the fabric would disintegrate.

                  I use this on my daily commute to work and although I've only had it about a month I think it is a great jacket. It is extremely lightweight and the fit is excellent (I am 6'1 with long arms and a large fits just right). The colour is awesome and makes me highly visible to traffic (probably its best feature). It is great for wind and a light rain but will not keep you dry in a downpour (as I've discovered). For the price though, you can't go wrong.

                              This jacket fits great, but like a review I saw, if you're on the edge between medium and large, you may want to go with a large. I bought this with the intention of being able to wear a few layers underneath. It turned out to be smaller than I thought it would be, even with the large, but it is a nice fit.

                              I wanted to wear this on the colder days mountain biking, but I'd hate to fall once and tear it so I haven't decided if I will or not. It blocks the wind extremely well, but it feels like it could tear easily.

                              Small pocket on the back for keys and things.
