The form-fitted cut is beautiful and simple. There’s no disturbing parachute effect with this jacket.The Elite Barrier Jacket will likely become your go-to outer layer for those days when you just don’t quite know what the weather is going to do. Being lightweight and slim, it’s eminently packable. So if you’re starting out under sunny skies, but you see the storm clouds off in the distance, you’ll know that you will be prepared. And if the drizzle has already started as you roll out of the driveway, this jacket will be the perfect solution. It comes equipped with a rear zippered pocket for those days you’ll be using it as the main outer layer and you want to have your essentials safe and immediately reachable. The full-length zipper has a draft flap to ensure protection from those cold winds you’ll undoubtedly encounter, and when you have it topped off, a zipper garage keeps it from biting at your neck. The elasticized hem and cuffs are designed in the same way to maintain a barrier against cold air penetrating into unwelcome places. And since cold days are often dark days, an abundance of reflective elements have been included to keep you visible in low level light. The Pearl Izumi Women’s Elite Barrier Jacket is available in Black. It comes in Small through X-Large sizes.

  • Body: 100% polyester; Weight: 82 g/m; Use simple detergents with no additives; Never use detergents with fabric softeners, perfumes or any additive type product; The general rule of thumb is the simpler the better.; Many detergents with additives leave “surfactants” behind on a fabric’s fibers that inhibit the technical performance; Typically the best detergents to use will have “Clear” or “Free” in their names; Don’t pour the detergent directly onto the clothing, put it in the washer first, when you start the water; If something is not functionally working, but is not dirty, try rinsing it twice in warm to hot water; This will help get rid of the harmful surfactants. Read the care content label; On the inside of your garment, or on the hangcard, there are instructions for the care of that individual piece; On garments this will be on a side seam or back seam label. Follow those directions; On finer fabrics, use a “Gentle” cycle. Close all zippers, attach “hook and loop” closures on gloves You can use the dryer, carefully; If you use a dryer be sure to use a lower / warm heat setting (Do NOT use a commercial dryer or a “Hot” setting); This will often restore the fabric and help the water and wind repellent qualities; If in doubt, hang the clothing to dry.

Great as a windbreaker but…. …if you’re looking for something water-resistant? This is NOT what you are looking for. I love the color, the fit, and how well it insulates from wind. For those qualities, it gets a 4 star rating. I was drenched right to my skin within 5 seconds of being outside in a light rain. For that, it loses a star.

Good cool weather jacket I got this jacket to replace a much lighter weight jacket for cool weather rides. This one has great wind resistance, and good breathability with the vent opening on the back. I haven’t tried it in the rain – it says it has good water resistance, so it might be good if I accidentally get stuck in the rain but I think I’ll stick to a waterproof rain jacket when I know it’s going to be rainy.Works great for biking with the extra long tail and rear pocket. It’s comfortable and works well for running too.It has some relective trim, but I wish it had more reflective fabric for night runs.
