Pearl Izumi Elite Barrier Vest - Closeout
The changing seasons bring cooler winds and unpredicted rain. It's a tough time to keep the ideal temperature on the bike...too much and you're roasting after 15 minutes, too little and you're cursing cold. Keep it even with Pearl Izumi's Elite Barrier Vest. It provides Pearl's Elite Barrier fabric for excellent wind/rain resistance, but features a full zip and Direct-Vent panels so once the heat is on, the only thing too hot is your performance. And of course comfort and safety are key; that's why the tapered collar and elastic hem keeps this vest where you want it, and reflective elements keep you visible.
  • ELITE Barrier fabric provides superior wind protection and water resistance
  • Direct-Vent panels provide superior ventilation
  • Full length internal draft flap with zipper garage seals in warmth
  • Elasticized hem keeps ideal fit
  • One back pocket stores tools and food
  • Collar tapers from front to back for ergonomics
  • Reflective elements for low-light visibility
Pearl Izumi Elite Barrier Vest - Closeout

      Comments about Pearl Izumi Elite Barrier Vest - Closeout:

      Good extra layer over torso for cold days that may warm up. Mesh back allows heat & sweat to escape. Soft, high neck for a good wind seal. A little noisy over the shoulders in the wind. Good kit otherwise.

        Comments about Pearl Izumi Elite Barrier Vest - Closeout:

        Although nicely water proofed, there is a large
        mesh panel across the upper back so vest would be
        worthless in any rain as there is no flap over this
        panel, catalog pix doesn't show the back

          Really like the fit. Could not pass on the sale price. Nice and light, folds up small enough for the back stash. Will also use during cool hikes and runs to keep the wind down and light warmth.

              Comments about Pearl Izumi Elite Barrier Vest - Closeout:

              If the fit weren't so baggy I would only complain that this vest is much heavier than average, but that could lead to durability. As it is, I'm no skinny climber at 5'8" and 180 lbs. (yes I'm fat) but the medium left a lot of room for me to grow even more of a beer belly.
