Pearl Izumi Women’s Attack WXB Jacket Review

Pearl Izumi Women's Attack WXB Jacket Review

A rainy day in winter is inevitable and a good quality waterproof is going to make or break the ride. As a no-frills, no-fuss, easy-on-the-budget waterproof jacket, the Pearl Izumi Women’s Attack WXB stacks up well against other jackets in our guide to the best winter cycling jackets. Form fitting, and made from recycled polyester that still manages to display impressive waterproof capabilities, it is a marmite jacket – you’ll either love its minimalism, or hate the distinct lack of features. 

I tested this jacket in some of the worst rain I have experienced this winter. I’m not a rider who relishes the rain, like most, and it’s a testament to this jacket that I was able to keep on riding. All too often waterproof jackets tend to be weaker on either breathability, windproofing or waterproofing. Not the case with the Women’s Attack WXB Jacket, which offered itself as an impressive all-rounder.
