Pearl Izumi Transfer Jacket

I was just at a PI outlet and picked one of these jackets up. Seems good, but there's one thing I can't for the life of me figure out.

It's got an elastic thread going through the back that *looks* like it tightens somehow, but I can't figure out how. Googling has turned up that it's a "self adjusting drawcord waist," but it doesn't seem to adjust by itself any way I can figure out. Usually the drawcord waists have some sort of plastic tie off that you can push a button to pull on and release to keep tight.

This jacket doesn't seem to have anything like that. Anyone have the jacket and know how it works?

Anyone know anything about this particular jacket? My only PI jacket is a simple windbreaker...
