While a vest in itself is an exceptionally versatile piece of apparel, Pearl Izumi decided to take this concept even further. With its new Elite Prima Women's Reversible Vest, you receive a layer of protection between your core and the wind, rain, and cold weather -- all in a reversible design. Besides that, it's light and packable, meaning that you don't really have an excuse for leaving it behind. Pearl Izumi used its Elite Barrier Fabric to construct the Elite Prima. This material was chosen for its high stretch, an ability to repel wind and water, and its high-level of breathability. Additionally, the Elite Barrier material sandwiches an interior layer of Primaloft, which provides you with added insulation around your torso and neck. This means that as the weather cycles change throughout your outdoor workouts, your body's temperature stays constant underneath. By creating the Elite Prima with a contoured paneling design, Pearl was able to achieve its 'semi-form' fit with the vest. This results in a fit that moves with you as you move, and eliminates the front panel from either bunching or hiking up. Additionally, Pearl engineered the vest with a generous drop tail at he rear in order to keep the elements out and the warmth in. Furthering this idea, the full-front zipper provides ample ventilation, but it also uses an internal draft flap and zipper garage to prevent cold winds from penetrating the vest. All together, the system nearly eliminates the threat of cold intrusion through your core. In the pocket department, Pearl Izumi added one zippered back pocket and two on the front in order to supplement your jersey pockets underneath. And for increased visibility to motorists in low-light conditions, the vest also features reflective accents throughout the construction. The Pearl Izumi Elite Prima Women's Reversible Vest is available in six sizes from X-Small to XX-Large and in the colors Berry, Black, and Blackberry.
