When you're riding in slightly unpredictable weather patterns, you need the Pearl Izumi Women's Elite Pursuit Hybrid Jacket on hand to be deployed at a moment's notice. Its ELITE Barrier fabric protects the front of your body and arms from wind and light precipitation as you ride through gray weather, while the back of the jacket uses Softshell Lite fabric to provide enhanced breathability without leaving you exposed to the elements. A Vislon two-way zipper allows you to add extra ventilation when you need it, or seal your body heat in when you start to get chilled. The elastic hem and cuffs protect you from drafts, and the waist even has a silicone gripper to keep it in place throughout your ride. The tailored fit eliminates bunching and chafing, and prevents the hem from flapping on fast descents. It's small enough to pack into your jersey pocket, and lightweight enough that its protection is worth it on every ride--even if you only need it on a few.
