For chilly-weather versatility, it's tough to beat the Pearl Izumi Aurora Lightweight Hooded Shirt. The Aurora can be worn under a shell as an insulating, moisture-wicking base layer, on its own as a comfortable next-to-skin jersey, or over another jersey as a protective shell. Pearl Izumi's legendary Select Transfer fabric is the real star of the show, here. With light stretch and moisture-wicking properties that have become industry standard, Select Transfer keeps you dry and comfortable in a wide variety of weather conditions.
Pearl's Select Transfer fabric makes the shivers from freezing wind
gusts a thing of the past. This is due in part to its quick-drying
abilities. The Select material manages moisture while
retaining precious body heat–an important characteristic when
early-season training rides are accompanied by chilly temps.
You'll also notice the full-length zipper, which not only makes it easier to get in and out of the Aurora, but allows you to dump heat in a hurry. Just when you think that long, tedious climb has you beaten, unzip the front of the Aurora a bit and feel the cooling breezes bring you back to life. The Aurora top can be used off the bike, as well. Instead of the traditional triple-rear-pockets design, the Aurora has two hand pockets in front and one on the side, which adds a bit of casual versatility.
The Pearl Izumi Women’s Aurora Lightweight Hooded Shirt comes with reflective elements for better visibility in low-level lighting. It is available in seven rich color choices: Green Flash/black, White/coral, White/black, Shadow Grey/pink punch, Peacock/black, Black/white, Black/dahlia. It comes in sizes X-Small through X-Large.
