PEARL iZUMi Full Zip Jersey

Full Zip Jersey (4985 Elite series)

I use this jersey as a jacket and wonder if (Pale Aqua/Jade, Chili Pepper, Pacific Blue/Sea Blue or White) would have been a better choice (than black), for increased visibility.
Pearl Izumi put a lot of thought into this design with details that translate into greater riding comfort. For example, the sleeves are long and cover your hands in cold weather, but have a cut-out so your thumbs can wrap around the brake hoods. The jersey is fully lined, comes with a full-length draft flap, as well as a “zipper garage” to seal in warmth and prevent that metal zipper from rubbing against your throat. Their 3’n2 Pocket “Kangaroo Pouch” doesn’t adequately replace the three pockets I’m used to, especially since the center, hidden pocket isn’t a waterproof safe haven for my iphone. However, for days when those arm warmers just aren’t warm enough this is definitely the best next layer.
