Road test

The jacket Peral Izumi Elite Barrier is well made and lightweight. The fit is excellent, while the fabric is soft to the touch. The maneuverability of the zip is perfect. On bike you appreciate the high impermeability to air and rain, although not a 100% waterproof garment, because of the seams are not sealed. Anyway you can ride in the rain for over 30 minutes before the water begins to filter through the seams and zip. Good breathability. Great clutter content, which allows you to store the jacket in a back pocket, so you can only use it downhill, in case of rain or lowering the ambient temperature. Valid and useful to be able to remove the sleeves, which are placed in the back pocket. A jacket so very versatile and with good technical characteristics, ideal in spring and autumn months, where having a waterproof garment and allow a greater thermal comfort can be helpful. Should also be noted that the cut of the jacket and specifications are well suited also for running, hiking and casual wear, further enhancing its versatility of use.
