It's great to wear when it's a little chilly in the mornings or its threatening rain. As it warms up, I zip off the sleeves and store them in the back pocket. I'm using this much more than I thought I would.

Review for Pearl Izumi 2014 Women's Elite Barrier Convertible Jacket
1 of 1 customers found this review helpful.

I love this jacket vest combo! The material is perfect and so is the fit. It fits snug so you don't get the flapping jacket look, but loose enough to fit over a jersey with warm warmers and full back pockets. The only improvement could be back pockets on it.

Review for Pearl Izumi 2014 Women's Elite Barrier Convertible Jacket
4 of 4 customers found this review helpful.

With temperatures starting and ending with a 30-40 degree variance, this jacket is extremely practical. The zip-off sleeves stores super small into one of the rear pockets of my jersey, and when it really heats up the vest part of the jacket stores into another one of my rear pockets of my jersey. It's nice not to leave cold in the AM, because I don't want to worry about extra layers. Very happy about my purchase. Actually bought a 2nd one to have 2 different colors )

Very lightweight jacket, good for a little warmth on brisk days in spring or fall. It does repel light rain also, not good for a downpour.

Perfect for cool morning/evening commutes. I got the fluorescent yellow color and haven't had a car pull out in front of me since.

Review for Pearl Izumi 2012 Women's Elite Barrier Convertible Jacket

This is my second Pearl Izumi Elite Barrier jacket, which I use for running. My other one is a prior year model and is holding up beautifully after 2 years of use. Here are a couple of differences between the two model years...

My older one had elastic at the wrists, where this one has a velcro closure. It's not as convenient having to adjust the velcro and have the tab flapping around (I have small wrists), but on the plus side it does allow you to undo the fastening and roll the sleeves up a bit if you get warm.

The other changes in design are mainly cosmetic - the white bend areas at the elbows and sides of upper back, for example. The zipper for the left chest pocket has also been moved a bit farther away from the main zipper, which provides easier access.

The zip-off sleeves are still my favorite part of this jacket, but one change that would be useful would be to change the direction of the zipper. It unzips from the top, neck end, but having it go the other way would allow for better venting and cooling in the armpit area if it were left partially unzipped as I often end up doing.

The material is great - light and breathable with the mesh panels, but you can tell you have an extra layer on, and it's nice when used during light rain or snow.

All in all, I love this jacket! )

Review for Pearl Izumi 2012 Women's Elite Barrier Convertible Jacket

Love this Sleeves zip off as one unit. Easy to take off and put back on. Great pincess seaming for a flattering fit. Took it with me for riding in France in early September. Weather perfect!

Review for Pearl Izumi 2012 Women's Elite Barrier Convertible Jacket

Needed a light weight jacket for warm, drizzly mornings and this was it. Not much on riding in wet weather but sometimes it happens when the group wants to go. Looks great, too! The only negative was that the Velcro didn't match up well when wearing as a complete jacket vs as a vest. The bolero style sleeves attach to the back besides the zippers. Neat design! Decided to live with since I liked it so well.

Great for keeping warm in moderate weather. I used it on a 500 mile ride in CA and never having had one before, I have no complaints.

This jacket is just right in every way. It does a great job blocking the wind, when it warms up the connected zipoff sleeves stays in one piece and will easily stuff into a pocket. I recently rode on the 101 Freeway along the coast and felt confident that that the Screaming Yellow color provided high visibility.
