Triathlon Plus - - The Big Test -


AS THE NAME suggests, an aero­dy­namic cut to suit the more ath­letic build, this Pearl Izumi jacket is a fairly min­i­mal af­fair. Most no­tice­able at first glance is that there are no stor­age pock­ets, so you’ll have to rely upon wear­ing a jersey be­neath. Which you’d be well ad­vised to, any­way, since warmth isn’t top of this jacket’s pri­or­i­ties. Waterproofing, on the other hand, is very good and it’s no­table for its light weight. Thin enough to be stashed in your long-sleeved jersey’s back pock­ets un­til needed, or sim­ply worn as a top layer, you’ll barely no­tice it’s there in a good way. Com­fort is good, too, with a long sec­tion of rear hem stay­ing in place with a strong sil­i­con grip­per, while stretch cuffs keep ev­ery­thing an­chored se­curely at the end of the sleeves.
