    Women's Jacket

    My fiancee and I rode together last year and want to ride even more this year. She is a "freeze baby" and gets cold pretty fast. We were at a LBS and she was looking at Pearl Izumi wind breaker jackets, but they are like 100 bucks. Is there a place that has these cheaper, or is there a comparable product that I should look at?
    Thanks!

    I've never seen a decent quality wind/rain jacket under $100, personally. If it fits well and will mean she rides more, I'd say go for it. Follow the care instructions and it should last several years.

    Almost all of the Pearl Izumi stuff is great. You can get things cheaper though. Try some other brands like Performance and Hind. Check out Bike Nashbar women's. REI is another good source. REI Outlet can have some really good deals but you may have to look until they have something you want. One other good place can be Sierra Trading Post, although you have to know what you are looking at as their prices are not always bargains.
