Cold, windy, rainy weather can fight your will to go out and ride or commute. Well it's time to fight back with the Pearl Izumi Select Barrier jacket. This is a cool-weather cycling jacket that's designed to keep you toasty in the cold and keep out a little pesky rain. SELECT Barrier fabric is highly breathable so you won't end up clammy inside the jacket; instead you still get the same great moisture transfer you need when you warm up. The elasticized seams help seal at your gloves and waist, so the zipper is the only place the cold can get at you, giving you control of the air intake. So next time the weather looks threatening, don't cancel your ride. Just pull on the SELECT Barrier jacket and get in the saddle.
SELECT Barrier fabric is excellent wind blocker
Full-length internal draft flap with zipper garage seals in warmth
Rear zipper pocket gives you plenty of space for the essentials
Elasticized hem and cuffs interface with gloves to create a seal
It helps to keep the wind out and maintain heat at temps between 50-55. But once you start to sweat, all of the moisture condenses on the inside of the garment. Before long, you and your jersey are soaked. Also, the back pocket is uncomfortably situated and very difficult to access with cycling gloves which get snagged on the inside as you try to remove items. Fits well looks nice.
