Strengths:    Pearl Event Channel Jacket keeps out cold 15-25deg F for 2-3 hours on the road, no problem with jersey, long tee and short tee under. XL fits 6'2" 215lb guy great. Love that the zipper can come up from the bottom. Couple inches stops a bulge on the front and when I slide it up 15" I get easy jersey pocket access and just slide it down, no need to align and start zipping from bottom. Will fit in jersey pocket, but taking it off will be a severe change in warmth.

Weaknesses:    I can tell that when its raining and above about 55 deg F I'll sweat too much to wear it on the road for 50 mi, 3 hours. We'll see this spring and I'll write in more then

Bottom Line:   
I like the quality, the reflective piping and having a thin jacket that severely stops the cold and wind and rain although it's been too cold to rain yet.

A great jacket. This jacket makes a fantastic outer layer for cool to cold weather rides. Probably the best money I have spent on bike clothes in a long time. Dumped on a downhill and jacket came up without even a scuff.
