Which Convertible Cycling Jacket to buy?

I am in the market for a winter convertible jacket for road biking. I am want to avoid fully waterproof because they do not breathe. I am thinking about either the Canari or Pearl Izumi Elite Convertible Jackets? They are around $100 and the sleeves can be removed?

Does anyone have any experience with these and can recommend one versus the other? Canari seems to be about half the price online.

Thanks in advance.

If anyone is an XL I have a Remnant of the Burly CoOp's rain gear production FS.
It's a great jacket, just too big for me , premium 3 layer WPB material..

Caped back and pitzips, so it breathes well , waterresistant zippers too..
