I bought this jacket as a newbie to road biking and associated kit, without wanting to break the bank ( I got this for around £50 and I certainly wouldn't recommend that you pay much more than this).
Sizing-wise, I am on the cusp of small-medium, depending on the manufacturer. The medium size was an ideal fit for me , not restrictive but not too baggy.
There is a generous rear pocket, which is zipped and will safely take your spare bits and mobile.

The jacket reminds me of an early generation mountaineering softshell. With a thin 'thermal' fleecy layer inside a wind and light rain-proof 'shell', although here the shell only covers the front and arms. This system allows a good degree of wind and weatherproofing, while achieving a high level of breathability.

In action I've been quite pleased. So far I've been out in temperatures down to 6 degrees C with reasonable comfort - but that's with a long-sleeve base layer and a long-sleeve cycling top underneath. Any colder and I'll need to find a more effective thermal layer.
The jacket definitely wicks sweat from the body, but I'm not sure how breathable the outer shell is as the sleeves retain moisture. It's not going to take persistent or heavy rain, but then it's not designed to.
The jacket looks OK and mine is a nice bright red as I still think it's best to be seen, even though many road bikers around here seem to favour black. I'm sure that to them I look every inch the beginner - but, for now I'm happy until I can save the money to splash out on something a little better.
Overall maybe more a 3.5 than a 4, but I've rounded up.

HASH(0x9ba7e48c) out of 5 stars this is a below 30F jacket 16 Nov. 2013
By honestly disagree - Published on Amazon.com
Warning: NO FRONT ZIP POCKET!!! Could be a big annoyance if you care.

Waterproof: I got damp inside after an hour in constant light rain. The dampness was that you know it isn't dry, but you can't squeeze out any water and it doesn't bother you after 10 minutes. I call it a success!

I have faster than normal circulation, maybe 75% percentile, but certainly not 85%.

Upper temperature: Not comfortable above 40F, 45F at most with a short sleeve shirt inside.

It was 6F and gusty in the morning. I went out with a short sleeve shirt, a medium thermal, and the jacket. I was comfortable for the whole hour's ride. For your reference, I also put on a mask to protect the face, a medium base layer and a causal pant on the legs, and a pair of winter hiking boots for the feet. The only unsuccessful part was the gloves. I had a thin pair inside a pair of lobster gloves. Still cold and I had to do braking finger movements to make them a little warmer.

It was 22F windy when I started biking to work. I have one medium thermal layer inside. My one hour ride was quite comfortable except the initial chill, coming from the mesh strips under the arms. After a few minutes, I felt warm but not hot, airy but not cold draft, and I felt heat exchange with outside just at a perfect rate. At the end, the sleeves got a little bit wet, but not too much. It was a little warmer at 29F when I biked home and I didn't felt much difference, thanks to the excellent heat management design. Now, I don't want to return it, instead I look forward to sub freezing days because I won't get too sweaty and it is actually enjoyable.

Another nice feature about the select jersey is that the front side is not too much higher than the back side, so you can wear it as a causal jacket without looking weird.

Once again, this is a really nice jacket, but you may not need it.

Bought it from another store for cheaper price. However, I really want to return it because I don't think I will use it that much.

This jacket = barrier jacket + heavy weight thermal - back barrier. I have already tried that barrier jacket + medium weight thermal + short sleeve is warm enough for me down to 30F. So, this jacket is mostly for sub 30F. There aren't many such days unless you live north of NY. Due to the built in thermal, this jacket is only comfortable with one more layer inside. Even then, that will get you down to 20F comfortably. Again, such days are few south of NY. But in 10 to 20's, I could do equally well with a regular light weight jacket + barrier + thermal + LS tee.

So, this jacket is perfect for someone in Boston, but won't see much use in DC.

Contrary to other pear izumi products, you don't need to size up unless you want two layers inside.

One start off because the elastics on sleeves and waist are weak and sleeves are a bit too long.

HASH(0x9b8b42c4) out of 5 stars Great jacket 7 Oct. 2012
By bottlerocket - Published on Amazon.com
I used this jacket on a ride at 45 - 52 degrees with a 9 mph north wind and it was plenty warm. I wore a Patagonia capilene 1 silk weight long sleeve shirt as a base layer and the combo worked great. My core was warm. I did sweat some and it seemed to breathe well. The thing I really like about this jacket is the wind breaking nylon, on the front side with close fitting jersey styling on the back. It fits like a jersey but is warmer. I am 6' 1' and 190 and the Large fit just right - snug. The sizing matches the guide and is typical for PI. Worth the money and I expect it would be warm riding down to about 40 easily.

HASH(0x9d89a3e4) out of 5 stars Bought for winter commute. 20 Dec. 2013
By Hoku - Published on Amazon.com
Colour Name: True RedSize: Large Verified Purchase
I am 5'11" tall, 150 lbs, with a 38" chest. The Large size fits me perfectly while wearing a base thermal top, fleece 1/2 zip pullover, and fleece vest. The front panels block the wind very well while the back and black sleeve inserts are breathable. Haven't used it in wet weather yet so I can't comment on its water resistance.

With temperatures in the 30F to 40F range, I am quite comfortable wearing this jacket. However, when it's in the 20's, I feel chilled until I've been riding for awhile. In windy conditions at 18F, I was warm enough though felt a bit of a chill on my back and arms. Still tolerable and definitely better than breaking a sweat at those temps.

Even though the Select series are PI's entry level jackets they are still well made with quality materials. While I am very happy with this jacket, it does have a couple of issues. The sleeves are too long and I prefer a velcro tab at the end of the sleeve as that works better with gloves than just elastic. Also wish it had a chest pocket. I always have a cell phone with me and would rather have it in a chest pocket as that makes it more accessible as well as less likely to get damaged if I go down.

HASH(0x9ba7a264) out of 5 stars great riding jacket for cold weather 13 Nov. 2013

be careful when you order these. If you want to keep warm, you want this exact one. The term "Select" is important. Other styles are thinner and not as warm for really cold weather like this one.

HASH(0x9ba781a4) out of 5 stars Perfect for southern winters 8 Feb. 2013
By Bamapop - Published on Amazon.com
Colour Name: True RedSize: X-Large Verified Purchase
I was at first hesitant about spending this amount of money for an insulated biking jacket. I figured I could find a cheaper alternative at a local sporting goods store. I was glad I went ahead with my purchase. This jacket keeps you very warm, wards off the winter wind, and has excellent ventilation. You stay comfortable without building up excess heat and sweating. I highly recommend this jacket.
