Q:

What's the most versatile jacket?

A:The other way garment makers go convertible is to offer zip-off sleeves, which are popular with cyclists and runners. A great example is Pearl Izumi’s Elite Thermal Convertible Jacket ($160). It’s a warm, weather-repellent softshell with zip-off sleeves. It also comes with reflective panels, back pockets, a yellow so bright it'll make your eyeballs hurt—perfect for riding.
