    Pearl Izumi Barrier Jacket vs Performance Nantahla Jacket

    Hey guys

    Just looking for anyone who has experience with either or both of these for tackling the Winter Months.
    How do they compare? How well do they hold heat during distances? etc.
    Any recommendations for an all-purpose jacket is welcome as well. =)

    P.S.
    Yes, I looked up reviews and used the search function. I just wanted some more elaborate answers if possible.

    Thanks.

    I cant comment on the Performance jacket but I have the PI and its probably one of the best items I own. It cuts down the wind in front and breaths a little in the back. The key is the layering underneath. I've worn it with just a short sleeve shirt for not so cold all the way to freezing temps with a base layer and long sleeve jersey. I would and have recommended to friends.

    I have a PI Gavia, it's great, a lot warmer than it looks, been riding with it at 40F and after 5 miles of flat mup take off my other layer leaving just a capilene s tee. Hope this helps ( the darn thing was expensive tho)
