Pearl Izumi PRO AmFIB Shell
Stay dry and ride longer with the Pear Izumi PRO AmFIB Shell. Thanks to Pearl Izumi’s proprietary PI Dry treatment, this windproof three-season jacket is ready for all the foul weather that lies ahead. While the jacket is not completely waterproof, its treatment causes water to bead up and run off well before it has the chance to soak through the fabric, keeping you dry in all but a torrential downpour. Bonded seams at the cuffs, neck and hem allow this jacket to fit close and feel closer to a long-sleeve jersey than a bulky outer layer. It’s time to take on any ride, no matter the forecast! $225; pearlizumi.com
