I'm not a tiny cardio bunny, but in my years of cycling I've come to realize that Pearl Izumi really fits me best when I'm in my more...well...less fit stages of life. Pearl Izumi seems to have a more "north american" fit compared to the other companies out there. I LOVED this jacket; the materials, the pockets (OH THE POCKETS!), the fact it wasn't a black or red or girly pink or hi-viz colour. Alas, I've forced myself to return it for the similar jacket from Pearl Izumi: P.R.O. Softshell 180 Jacket. I don't like the color selection of the Pearl Izumi jacket but the fit is more realistic for me and somehow I got the P.R.O. version cheaper than the more colorful Elite 180. I would not hesitate to purchase this jacket for everyone else who is considering it!
