Lightweight, breathable weather barrier.
If you get a block from your house before you notice the dark clouds on the horizon, turn back and grab the Pearl Izumi Women’s Elite Barrier Jacket, just in case. This highly packable jacket provides windproof, water-resistant protection from the elements that makes it well worth the slight detour. A full-length draft flap along the zipper and elasticized hems seal in the warmth when you hit the edge of the cloud cover. Reflective piping and logos make you more visible to passing motorists as lighting conditions deteriorate. Now that you have the jacket on, tuck your chin into the microfleece collar and pedal like the wind to outrun the storm.

- Q & A
I almost always wear a small or medium top. But I am a rower with broad shoulders and Iâm a 34C. There is no way a medium fit me. Especially since rowing involves reaching out and pulling back. I wouldâve ripped outta this like the Hulk. I returned it for a large vest instead. The fabric is super thin so donât turn to this for warmth, just visibility.
