This thing works well for running or cycling in the rain/wind with a single thin base layer or more if you size up. (Fully waterproof/breathable) The fit is very close and runs small. Pearl Izumi states that this jacket has a more generous cut and is "less form fitting" than their Fly softshell but I disagree. Having both I must say that the cut is VERY similar i.e., the Select Barrier IS form fitting to the point that if you intend to layer for cold, sizing up is a must. Moreover, while their athletic cut is the best around, Pearl Izumi likely does not intend for anyone over 185 and 6' to wear their stuff. Those are my numbers exactly and I wear a XXL just to have a little room. The detachable hood works connects with extremely low profile snaps - nice feature and definitely superior to a zipper. The hood rolls up very small and stows in the aft pocket. The jacket's bulk is next to nothing - compressible down to the size of a man's wallet, maybe less. Vast improvement over a running windbreaker or using a alpine shell for running in the slop. Not likely to take much abuse as it is very light.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use, athletic cut, Cons: runs small

This jacket performs very well in the rain in Seattle. I purchased the screaming yellow color which is highly visible. The jacket is easy to use over layers of clothing for warmth. Rain drops will 'pimple' the fabric but this does not affect performance.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Ease of use, Great value
