|There's this really great Pearl Izumi jacket at the LBS. It's gray with detachable sleeves and folds away into itself for when it gets warmer. Questions. Is it worth the money ($109)? Can I get it cheaper? Can I use it for more than just riding? I need a jacket and that's The ONE.

|That sounds like the one I have. Bought it last year. It'a great all-season jacket, and I really like the zip-away sleeves. Great for running too!!! Makes a great shell as well when the weather gets cooler!

|I bought the same jacket (Pearl Izumi) two years ago, from Sierra Trading Post, for less than $70.00 (year-end clearance). It's a nice cool weather jacket, plus it makes a great shell over a woolie for colder riding. To tell you the truth, I have never yet zipped off the sleeves. It's either jacket on, or I'm too warm, so take it off. But, this was when I was doing off-road riding exclusively. I may find now that I'm doing the road thing as well, that a vest-like garment may be a welcome addition to my cycling wardrobe.|
