ELITE Escape Barrier Jacket

More packable than a rain jacket and more protective than a windbreaker, the Pearl Izumi Elite Barrier Jacket acts as a breathable fortress against windy weather and scattered showers. The shell's DWR treatment beads off light showers and road spray from dampening your inner layers, while the full-length draft flap seals out rogue gusts. Plus, its highly breathable polyester shell enhances thermo-regulation, keeping the inside from turning into a sauna on wet, muggy rides.

The anatomic, yet relaxed cut keeps it comfortable through a wide range of cycling positions. Best of all, it packs down small enough to fit into your jersey's rear pocket for deployable protection on-the-fly, should the weather change at a moment's notice. Other key features include a drop-tail rear hem for extra protection, as well as elasticized hem and cuffs for a secure, stay-put fit. You'll also appreciate the jacket's highly visible logo and reflective hits for extra safety at night.

Not a good jacket at all

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

This jacket runs small. I usually wear a large, but bumped up to an XL to allow for a base layer. Still too small. The cuffs are have very cheap elastic and does not compress at all. No pockets in the front. Wore it once in 55 degree weather with a light base layer. Did not keep out any type of wind or retain heat. This product needs rethinking.

Hey Barron, I am sorry to hear that this jacket didn't quite work for you. I am happy to send you a free return label if you want to send it back to us. Thanks for the review, it really helps out our community.
