Pearl Izumi Elite Barrier WXB Converter shorts review
The Elite Barrier Converter is an interesting choice: it’s a two-layer waterproof short cut loose for ease of movement with optional zip-on/off three-layer lower legs to convert it to full length trousers.
The external material is soft to the touch with a shiny but non-crinkly material, and the inside face feels pleasant against your legs. The combination is waterproof and effective against the worst the winter weather can throw at you.
You can adjust ﬁt with a waist drawstring, the lower legs are adjustable and the right leg has reinforced panels to resist chainring teeth.
