Very nice Ok just received my jacket. Sizing, I’m 5’10” 185 and large fits great, not to tight so I can fit a mid weight under it and not to baggy to catch wind. I love the detachable sleeves makes a great 2 in 1. Over all great buyUpdate 3/6/12Just did my first ride in the jacket, 25 miles Temp was about 30 degrees and really windy. I must say the jacket preformed awesome. The wind blocker in the front really works and sleeves are long so they don’t ride up and let the wrists get cold. Now on the sizing, I did have a little wind flapping in the shoulders but if it were any smaller it would be two tight in the chest and back with a base layer. Now in the summer with a heat gear base layer and the sleeves off it will probably be a little big, well not tight like a jersey, but on the other hand if your not a racer looking for the least wind resistance which I’m not it will be nice. I hope this review helps, I would recommend this jacket!!!!

Very comfortable and well-constructed – a great value! Bought this to replace an REI-branded jacket that had zipper issues. The PI Elite Barrier jacket is purposed differently than what I had but overall it is a better product for me. The material is lighter weight and stuffs easily, the downside is that it is not as windproof nor as waterproof. However I don’t ride in the rain (on purpose)and I always dress in layers so the small amount of wind that gets through is not a huge issue. Unlike most of PI’s garments, the jacket fits true to size. I wear an XL in their jersey’s but a Large in this jacket fits better on me – snug without being too tight. The sleeves are long enough to not ride-up when I’m down in the drops. The material is soft and flexible and there is a sewn-in neck lining that is very soft and feels like brushed cotton but I’m sure it’s a synthetic material. The waist band has an elastic cord with a gripper to snug it as much as you need and the back of the jacket has a vent that can be opened or closed (partially)…
