How many times have you dressed just a little too lightly for the conditions outside simply because you wanted to avoid wearing your warmest but least comfortable winter riding jacket? Somehow most of the winter-beasts which must incorporate wind, rain and warmth protection also wear like a suit of armor. The Pearl Izumi P.R.O. Softshell Jacket changes all that with its wonderfully comfortable softshell technology which also combines winter clothing necessities: protection from the wind, rain and cold. It comes with contoured sleeves with specially shaped cuffs so that the upper part of the hand is covered by more fabric than is found on the under-wrist. The collar of the jacket is also tapered from the front to the back so that the back of the neck will get the benefit of more coverage while the fabric at the front will not interfere with your helmet strap. It is cleverly designed with a collar tab which will allow you to secure the zipper or even keep the collar closed while you zip down to vent your chest a little. For a winter jacket, ventilation is equally essential as the innovations that keep you warm. The P.R.O. Softshell Jacket has laser cut Direct-Vent panels to keep any heat build-up from turning the interior of your jacket into a veritable sauna. It also come with a full length zipper along with an internal draft flap and garage seal to keep the air from penetrating through to your under shirt. And as the last resort to seal in your body heat, a one hand pull elastic draw cord at the collar will see to it that even on the coldest, wettest days, your neck and back will stay warm and dry. One rear pocket with a zipper has been provided as has a zippered chest pocket which will be perfect for your iPod or phone. Multiple reflective elements have been included on all sides of the jacket, so that you won't have to worry about not being visible if dusk arrives faster than you expected. The Pearl Izumi P.R.O. Softshell Jacket is available in Black/Black and True Red/Black color options. It comes in Small through XX-Large.

I'm looking for something that will cut the wind out yet still breathe in temps from 20-50 degrees. I'm not really looking for waterproof as that means sweating and overheating.
I saw these on the Pearl Izumi site.
