Pearl Izumi sizing is ridiculos
by James

Large from Pearl Izumi is the equivalent of small from other manufacturers. I can barely zip the damned thing up. I may be getting fat in my old age, but I'm not that fat. Order at least two sizes larger than you ordinarily wear

Close Enough

Fit: 5'-10" 160 lbs. I got a small and it fits well, not a race fit, but not overly bulky, I'd not want it any larger for sure, it's the largest I'd still wear without buying down a size.

Temps: I've mostly worn it for up to 3.5 hours for Zone1-3 steady state riding so I stay warm when riding. Personally I hate the cold and I'm usually the first person to start shivering. I've worn it from 27F to 44F. It runs warm.

In the colder temps, I wear a 250 weight Merino baselayer under it and a Castelli winter vest over it. Use the zippers to regulate temps.

In the warmer temps, I wear a 150 weight Merino baselayer under, same vest over. It's definitely on the warm side in the mid-40s. Below 30�, I've only ridden for 2 hours at most and only my hands and feet were starting to get cold.

Rain: IDK, I have a Shakedry jacket so I use that if it gets wet enough.

Other: It could stand to breath a little better, maybe a strip of some other fabric on the back of the arms or the pits. Wearing Merino under it helps. The back pocket and surrounding area seem overbuilt, I don't use them since I wear a vest.

Great for chilly days

This jacket is soft and warm. Just right for

Chilly days. It is not water proof but will resist fog or a light drizzle.

Protection from Cold

Jacket provides protection from cold temps and wind. Almost like putting on a suit of armor. Stiff but not too much. Insulated. It works great. Fit is true. No flapping.

Too warm for my needs

I have no problem with it but a couple of observations. My 3-mile ride to work this morning was at 24 degrees. I wore this jacket over what I consider to be a light thermal jersey. Half way through I had to unzip the jacket. I think in the 20s you could get away with this jacket over a t-shirt or base layer. Second observation, I ordered the x-large after reading several reviews here and elsewhere that it runs small. That may be true if you're layering heavily, and I don't mind winter gear fitting a little loose. However, a large would have done me just fine at 6' and 195 pounds. The XL drips off even over the thermal jersey. I could see using this in Canada over several layers at which point I would size up. But as a single layer of over a t-shirt don't size up.

It's well made, very warm, and breathes well, but I'll be saving it for layering in the teens and over a t-shirt in the 20s. No way I'll have this anywhere near me with temps above freezing. On sale it's a good deal.

The X-large runs small

I am about 6' 1', 215. I wear an X-large in long or short sleeve t shirts and they fit me comfortably.

Since I will be wearing this jacket over at least one layer. I tried the jacket with a base layer and the fit was too tight for me to move around comfortably. Unfortunately, they did not have an XX-large in this jacket, so I had to return the item.

The jacket felt comfortable and was in a color suitable for road and trail riding.

warm enough for me but i only ride in

the mid to high 40s at the coldest but still just right for 50s without being too hot and it's windproof. i wish there was a small chest pocket to store tissues for runny noses while riding in the cold.

Good value. Lightweight jacket. Pretty comfortable. Not very breathable. I still get a bit chilly even in California. Very bright yellow (a good thing) It's just okay.

Warm and comfortable but needs better pocket design

This is a very warm and very visible jacket. With the right base layers, I've worn this down to 21F and was warm and insulated from the wind. The only complaint I have is that the rear pocket opens too high to be easily accessible. A side entry zipper would be nice or, at least one zippered front pocket would make this a perfect winter jacket.
