Select Barrier Jacket
Pearl Izumi designed its Select Barrier Jacket to be the ultimate packable protective layer. The jacket accomplishes this through the use of Pearl Izumi's lightweight fabrics and sleek design, making it that line of 'just in case' defense you'll be glad you stuffed in your back pocket before rolling out the door. For the construction of the jacket, Pearl Izumi employed its exclusive Select Barrier fabric. This material has been hailed by Pearl as the benchmark for an equilibrium among warmth, moisture transfer, and protection from the elements. It uses a stretchy composition that conforms to the contours of your body, and it's also exceptionally wind- and water-resistant.
By creating the Select Barrier with a contoured paneling design, Pearl Izumi was able to achieve its 'semi-form' fit with the jacket. This results in a fit that moves with you as you move, and eliminates the front panel from bunching or hiking up. Additionally, Pearl Izumi engineered the jacket with a generous drop tail in the rear, as well as elasticized hem and cuffs. Furthering this idea, the full-front zipper provides ample ventilation, but also uses an internal draft flap and zipper garage that prevents cold wind from penetrating the jacket. For storage of your ride essentials, Pearl Izumi included a large rear zippered pocket. And to increase your visibility to motorists in low-light conditions, it also incorporated reflective elements throughout the jacket.

Strange fit (for me at least)
- I returned this product before using it
- Runs small
- Size Bought
- Large & XL
- 5` 6"
- 170 lbs
Look and quality is very good. Fit is strange (for me at least). 5'-6", 170lbs, 43" chest, 40" waist (around belly). Bought size L based on sizing chart. Jacket fit was very good in all areas except for chest which was way to small. Then bought XL which was still too small in chest and also way to big (for me) in body. Will try other brand.

PEARL IZUMI Select Barrier Jacket
- I've used it several times
- True to size
Roomy enough fit without being a parachute. Light weight, packable, breathable, but cuts the wind on chillier days, allowing me to run a merino base layer and long sleeve jersey under this into the low 30's. I am long -waisted and it covers ideally.

Solid jacket but...
- I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
This is a pretty decent jacket, lightweight, easy to stuff in a pack. However, especially given the intended use, it is not that long. I am 5'11, 185, and I find that this jacket barely makes it past my waistband.
