Comments about Pearl Izumi Elite Softshell Jacket - Closeout:
Fit true to size. I'm 5'10", 180 lbs 41" chest. I've used down to 32f (real feel 25f) with sleeveless baselayer and insulated jersey and I felt toasty. Also worn at 28f with wind chill factor in teens substituted l/s baselayer and again was warm without feeling too hot. I like the breathable fabric along arms and under sleeves. I don't have to un zip to vent. Enough room for additional layers. With this jacket I am set thru the NE winter. I haven't used it above 48f but would think a sleeveless baselayer and jersey would be warm.
