When inclement weather is on the horizon, slide into the versatile Pearl Izumi Elite Barrier Convertible Women's Jacket. With its removable sleeves, you can adjust to the conditions on hand, in real-time. However, don't think that zip-off sleeves are the extent of this jacket's weather-resistance.
Pearl Izumi's ELITE Barrier fabric sheds wind, while providing light water-resistance for coverage during summer storms. And when the weather breaks, removing the sleeves and stashing them in the back pocket makes for a logical solution to humid conditions. Additionally, Izumi incorporated its Direct-Vent panels in order to provide extra ventilation to the core.
On the other end of the temperature spectrum, the inner collar's micromesh lining adds a soft and warm sensation to the neck when fully-zipped up. And speaking of zippers, the full-length zip features an internal draft flap and zipper garage that prevents cold wind from penetrating the jacket. Furthering this concept are adjustable hook-and-loop closures at the wrist, and a one-handed elastic draw cord at the waist. As a system, you'll find that the threat of cold intrusion is nearly eliminated.
For ease of use, Pearl Izumi used a one-piece, integrated sleeve design that make removal, installation, and stowing the sleeves a simplified affair. The large rear pocket easily accepts the sleeves, and there are also two hand pockets available to house your essentials. And for increased visibility to motorists in low-light conditions, the jacket also features reflective accents throughout the construction.
The Pearl Izumi Elite Barrier Convertible Women's Jacket is available in six sizes from X-Small to XX-Large and in the colors Berry, Black, Blackberry, Orchid, Paradise Pink, Samurai Plaid, Screaming Yellow, Scuba Blue, True Red, and White.
