I was a bit nervous...
I was a bit nervous about the size, I 5'9'' 165 and the size chart states a medium and it was spot on. No restrictions in movement and could probably get a base layer and mid layer on but might be a bit snug. Did a product test under these conditions; start time 7:00am; start temperature was 50 degrees, start elevation 8500 feet. Did a 45 mile out and back to Kenosha Pass CO at 10,000 feet and I could not be happier with this jacket. I had a light summer riding jersey on under the jacket, I stayed warm on the descent and it vents well and no overheating on the climbs. This might be the best cycling specific clothing I have purchased in a long time.

Great jacket, not completely waterproof
I have been quite happy with this jacket. I wear it every day the temperature is 35-60 and am fine with just a long underwear shirt underneath. It has a really good balance of wind resistance and ventilation; the vented arm pits are great. I was just hoping it would be more waterproof. It does great in light rain but it does not hold up to constant showers.

The fit is perfect. I am 6'2" 170 lbs and the large works great. Its long in the back too which I really like.

PROS: Ventilation, Size, Weight, Fit

CONS: Not completely waterproof

As with all Pearl...
As with all Pearl Izumi sizing, if you're in between medium and large sizing, go with the large size.. Handy buy for the winter as well..

Nice 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.

PROS: Versatile, Lightweight, High Visibility

BEST USES: Mountain Biking, Road Biking, Commuting/City

Super light and great value
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.

PROS: Lightweight, Durable

BEST USES: Mountain Biking, Commuting/City, Road Biking

great jacket but not for a downpour
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.

PROS: Inexpensive, Lightweight, Great fit, Highly visible
