Disappointing. Bought similar PI jacket before and loved. Replacement jacket skimped on fabric.
on March 24, 2013
I LOVE this design and had the prior version of years. The zip off one piece sleeve and storage pocket in the back are great. Unfortunately, or fortunately, I used my old one so much, it is beginning to have grease spots and permanently dirty edges, so I looked for exactly the same jacket.
Pearl Izumi replaced the prior fabric with one that is in extremely thin and cheap. The cut is even narrower, I assume to save on fabric. If I seen this jacket in a store, I would not have bought it. With mail order, unless it is absolutely horrible, I keep it.
