    I'm using it on the trails in Michigan and it breathes well. As the weather gets colder, my layers are increasing but this thing works great as a windbreaker.

      Quality construction. Zip-off sleeves are nice. zippered pockets are better than the Velcro on the older models.

        I use the jacket all winter long on those cold morning starts. It helps with the layering depending on temperature I either take off the jacket or just the sleeves once it warms up.
        It is breathable enough that does not hold excess moisture and windproof enough to keep the cold air out.
        I liked it so much that I bought a second one just in case

          Comments about Pearl Izumi Elite Barrier Convertible Jacket - Closeout:

          I bought to add some layers and wind protection in cold-weather riding in New Hampshire. It is a light jacket, so I planned to use it for the wind protection more than thermal (leaving that to the base layers).

          I rode last weekend in 28 degrees, and 24 degrees yesterday. Base layers included a thermal bib, UnderArmor long-sleeve upper, another vest wind-breaker, and (of course) cold weather gloves, Louis Garneau Matrix Balaclava, and shoe covers.

          A little chilly at higher speeds, but overall pretty good!

            Comments about Pearl Izumi Elite Barrier Convertible Jacket - Closeout:

            This jacket is really nice quality. I wore it recently for the first time on a winter ride in the 40s. It started to rain lightly and I stayed dry. Don't buy it for warmth because it's lightweight and thin but with a few good wicking layers underneath for warmth, this will cut the wind and shed rain. I haven't removed the sleeves on a ride yet but I'm sure that feature will come in handy during fall and spring rides. The Hi-Vis color is exactly that! It's bright, so if you want to be seen on the road then that's the color you want. I'm 5'10" 170lbs and M fits nice with some room for tight layers underneath. Overall, lightweight, versatile, and excellent quality.

              Bought this jacket as a windbreaker over thick long sleeve jersey from mid 30's to high 40's. Keeps the cold wind completely off my arms and chest. When things warm up just take off the sleeves. Fit true to size. I wear medium shirts with 38" - 40" chest. Fits perfect over thick long sleeve jersey. Happy with construction and quality at this point. Didn't give 5 stars because I haven't tried it in the rain and hope I never have to...

                  I have used it for running so far and it is great. I am thinking of getting a bicycle this year and I imagine it will be great for that as well.

                    The back pocket is almost a small pack, great for cap, leg and arm warmers, with enough room for an extra set of gloves.
