When it comes to cycling apparel, we love versatility, because you can't beat the ability to stretch a buck over different seasons. The Pearl Izumi Women's Select Barrier Convertible Jacket does just that. With the ability to remove its sleeves, the Convertible Jacket can be worn as a vest in moderate temperatures, or as a full-sleeve jacket on near-freezing, dismal days. Either way you wear it, the Convertible Jacket is going to keep you riding and warm when Mother Nature would rather keep you indoors.Pearl Izumi's Select Barrier Convertible Jacket is made from the exclusive Select Barrier fabric. This material has been hailed by Izumi as the benchmark in the quest for an equilibrium between warmth, moisture transfer, and protection from the elements. It uses a stretchy construction that conforms to the contours of your body and provides ample insulation. The cut allows unrestricted movement and articulation, and the secure, semi-slim fit retains core-generated warmth without the feeling of riding through a rain forest. Instead, the Select Barrier construction ensures a high level of breathing and moisture transfer to keep you riding warm and dry at near-freezing temperatures. And if you do need extra ventilation, the Convertible jacket is extremely versatile. The design includes a full-length front zipper for dumping heat on your way up to the summit, and zip-off sleeves to convert the jacket into a vest on warmer days. For the harshest of conditions, you'll be happy to know that the Select Barrier Jacket is also resistant to wind and water. The Pearl Izumi Select Barrier Convertible Jacket is available in six sizes from X-Small to XX-Large and in the colors Black, Orchid, Peacock, Pink Punch, Safety Orange, Screaming Yellow, True Red, and White.
