I purchased this jacket so I could ride throughout the Mid-Michigan winters when my neighborhood roads were clear. Previously, I used all kinds of non-breakable windbreakers and always became totally sweaty. This jacket has material in the arms and on the back that allows for moisture transfer to pass through. When you open the two chest zippers on the front, even more air moves through the jacket so you have some control. I'm a small guy but purchased the medium so I could put on a base layer and thermal jersey underneath with no problem for those days that are well below freezing and it fit perfect. Coldest temps that I rode in with the jacket was 24F with a 5mph wind and I was toasty with very little moisture buildup while riding the roads with my mountain bike...I love Pearl Izumi products and this jacket is perfect for my winter riding activities. Thank you Jensen for providing a great price and fast delivery on this product.
Was thinking would be a little more water proof. However, I realize different regions have different levels of water proof. I did a ride where my "waterproof" gloves, socks, jacket, pants all got wet inside. This jacket, though wet, was very warm and breathable the entire 3 hours. And yes, it rained for 3 hours. I would not pay retail for it, but at the discount, worth every penny. Thanks jenson for the fast shipping and easy shopping!
This jacket is too expensive for the material. the size is actually small instead of Medium. The sleeves are 1 inch too long compare to other jackets. the chest pockets are useful. the front black polyester does block wind.
