Ascents generate more body heat than any other action on the bike. And if your day is going to be comprised of massive elevation gains, your best bet to keep cool is the Pearl Izumi Elite LTD Climbers Jersey. Why? Well, instead of using Izumi's Transfer or P.R.O. fabrics for the construction, the Climbers Jersey is made entirely from its Direct-Vent mesh.

This means that your core is going to enjoy the pinnacle of ventilation, breathability, and moisture wicking during your painfully long exertions on the mountain. As a result, you'll remain cooler and dryer than with standard fabric constructions. And, even if you manage to accumulate excess body heat, a full-length zipper allows you to perform on-the-fly heat dumps when necessary.

And while the Climbers jersey has temperature-related comfort dialed-in, Izumi also designed its Direct-Vent mesh to be comfortable against the skin. It has a soft-to-the-touch feel against the skin, and it also features a four-way stretch construction. So, you'll experience a complete freedom of movement while you're moving in and out of the saddle on climbs.

At the back of the Elite LTD Climbers jersey is an elasticized gripper that keeps the jersey in place. Three back pockets reside here as well, and there's a hidden, sweat-proof pocket for housing of your electronics.

The Pearl Izumi Elite LTD Climbers Jersey is available in five sizes from Small to XX-Large and in the colors Centerline Black and Centerline Cherry Tomato.

Great jersey & fit

I'm a size medium in street clothes, size small in Louis Garneau. I measured between the Small and Medium at Pearl Izumi. I went with the medium, and I'm glad I did. Fits a little tighter like a semi-form fit would. Not obnoxiously tight or restrictive, nice feel when on the bike. I've been riding in 100+ degree heat (with heat index) and this jersey has kept me cool and vented. I'm super pleased with this purchase. I was a little worried about the sizing and how the mesh would look/function, but both concerns proved to be non-issues. Looks great and performs well. The cherry tomato color is a nice shade of orange, just what I wanted. Would buy again, especially at the great deal through backcountry.

Great fit for tall guys

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I'm 6'8", 200 lb. After trying and returning several jerseys (including Sportful and Assos), I am amazed that this jersey actually has decent length. Not as long as the gnarly Aerotech Designs club cut tents that I had been wearing, but long enough, particularly if I'm wearing bibs. The XL race cut fits me well in the body. Material is a little on the stiff side, but still quite cool on hot days.

Good review and thanks for the picture. Some jerseys look better or worse when you see them on a cyclist. It gives you a better idea how the fit is. I also like the tighter fit.

Great jersey with nice materials

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I'm 6-0, 170 and the Large fits perfectly. Great materials. Would be a five if it had a waterproof pocket. Also, description lists zippered pocket. Mine was shipped with no zippered pockets.

Great Jersey

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

I really like this jersey. Quality is great, no chaffing anywhere and it is super lightweight. I have a trouble with overheating and I didnt even notice I was wearing this thing. Wicked moisture away perfectly and I was incredibly comfortable on my ride up to big mountain summit on a 75 degree day. I did get chilly when the wind picked up.

I am 5'8 135lbs with pretty broad shoulders and the medium fit great

Unanswered Question

Do the rear pocket have garters in them? I had a Pearl Izumi Quest and the pockets don't have garters in them. When I put my iphone in, it pulls the jersey downwards with the neckline feeling like its "choking" me.

Pearl Izumi Elite LTD Climber

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

The product was great but fits smaller. It seems that the size chart (possibly product Made in China) is a size smaller than US size chart. I'm 5'5"/170 and bought a Mens Large but the product fits like a medium. It was so tight and felt that the jersey will rip when used. All other jerseys I bought for Mens Large fits me perfectly. Check if product is made outside of the US. If so, order a size bigger. Now, it cost me shipping charges ($5.95) to have item shipped to me and shipping charges ($6.99) to return a $39.98 item. Be very careful not to make the same mistake I made.
