Pearl Izumi Elite Escape Convertible Jacket

If you could choose just one windshell to have with you on any moderate ride, the ELITE Escape Convertible Jacket would be it. Versatile and simple like no other option, it can easily convert into a vest mid-ride, be stuffed into itself, and using an integrated strap, be stored directly on your bike. Its semi-form fit and two convenient hand pockets for casual use makes it comfortable on and off the bike. It is a perfect option as three-season insurance for sport and recreational riders who value their funds and minimalism, and perhaps even more valuable for daily commuters who prefer to keep things simple and deal with vastly different conditions regularly, perhaps twice a day.

A lightweight, supple, and highly effective material, the ELITE Barrier fabric, provides superior wind protection and water resistance all around. The Pearl designers deliver you a bevy of features and details. Easy-to-grab zipper pulls of the two-way Vislon® model are so welcome any time you need to cinch up or ventilate, and a mesh upper back on the vest allows additional ventilation. Of course the zip-off sleeves that make this jacket a vest are awesome, and if you just need a little pit ventilation, you can create airflow with a slight unzip of the assembly. A silicone gripper on the waist hem holds the piece in place and there are strategically placed reflective elements for low-light visibility.
