Pearl Izumi Women’s Elite WxB Jacket

what is this?

Pearl Izumi's Elite Barrier WxB Women's Jacket gets its name from its waterproof and breathable features. The jacket is aligned at the top of Izumi's Wind+Water collection, as its watertight construction ensures that you remain warm, comfortable, and most importantly, dry while logging your late-season base miles.

The perfect jacket for those early or late season runs.

how does it work?

To make the Elite Barrier WxB women's jacket so efficient at shielding you from the elements, Pearl Izumi pulled out all of the stops for its construction. Starting with the fabric, the ELITE WxB is made from a material of the same namesake. Featuring a breathable 2.5-layer stretch knit material, ELITE WxB is both wind-resistant and waterproof. Aside from the material, Pearl went as far as to fully tape all of the jacket's internal seams. This eliminates the possibility of water seepage, and it creates a dry environment inside of the jacket.

Obviously, these attributes make the ELITE Barrier WxB jacket ideal for stormy conditions, but the soft, malleable, and breathable characteristics of the fabric provide protection in cold weather, as well. Given that it's meant to work in a variety of cool- and cold-weather conditions, ELITE WxB provides a light insulation layer without running the risk of having you overheat. The fabric breathes incredibly well, and just as importantly, it wicks moisture away from the skin to the quick-drying surface. So, you'll stay protected against any moisture — whether it's Mother Nature's doing or your own.

And just for the sake of being overcautious, Pearl included a full-length, watertight front zipper. For extra protection from the elements, it's also been given an internal draft flap. To store any of your valuables that need to remain dry, the Elite WxB has a zippered rear pocket and two zippered front pockets. The jacket also features a retractable drop-tail hem and reflective accents throughout for added visibility to motorists in low-light conditions.
