Women's Elite Barrier Convertible Jacket/Vest

Pearl Izumi


  • Be ready for anything with this wind and water resistant convertible bike jacket that quickly converts to a vest. Choose the full jacket protection during cool, windy or wet conditions, or go with a vest to keep your core warm when the weather turns more mild.

  • Renata says: What a brilliant idea! A cycling jacket that converts into a vest! I wore this jacket on a few runs when it was chilly outside, and it was so nice to be able to remove the sleeves once I warmed up. The sleeves came off so easily, I didn't even have to break my stride. I stuffed them really easily into the huge back pocket and just kept on running.

    I have also worn this jacket cycling. It's nice and light, yet it protected me from the wind and a few showers that passed by. It was also breathable, and I never overheated in it.

    I really like the light and soft fabric. It feels like a soft shell, and it folds up easily, small enough to stuff into my pocket. I also like how quiet it is in the wind. I am so glad I got this jacket!!
