Nothing beats starting out a cold, damp ride with a pair of warm, waterproof pants. Pull on the Pearl Izumi Elite Barrier WxB Convertible Pants for breathable, waterproof protection from the elements. The Convertible Pants can be worn as either a pair of pants or as a pair of shorts, So, whether it's a cold storm front, or a muggy tropical rain, the Convertible Pants have got you covered. Now, there's no excuse to blow off your morning ride, or to take the bus to work instead of riding.Unlike conventional rain pants that hang loosely around your legs, Pearl Izumi's Elite Barrier WxB fabric combines a next-to-skin comfort with a two-layer stretchy knit construction. And with Izumi's Titanium thermo-regulating technology, you don't run the risk overheating. The pants' semi- form fitting cut takes advantage of the stretchy material by allowing comfortable movement without your pants ballooning when a gust of wind hits you. For a dialed-in fit, side adjusters and an elastic waistband have been added. A zip closure at the cuff both mitigates the malice of chain suck and prevents cold air from sneaking in. Once the sun peeks out from behind the clouds, thigh vents prevent overheating. And when you're finally feeling warmed up, zip the legs off to finish your ride in a comfortable pair of shorts. That's right -- on-the-fly conversion.A single side pocket stores small ride essentials that you need to keep handy. Reflective print and tabs throughout the pants give it 360 degrees of visibility in low-light conditions.The Pearl Izumi Elite Barrier WxB Convertible Pants are available in the color Black and come in six sizes from X-Small to XX-Large.
