Verified Buyer Reviewed by traveler from Seattle, WA on Tuesday, November 8, 2016I love the full under-arm zips. Fit is perfect. Lots of room in the shoulders.
Reviewed by kathikes from Oregon on Wednesday, September 28, 2016I bought this jacket to serve as a heavy-duty weather hardshell over layers. I do search and rescue in the Pacific Northwest and need something that will stand up to hours (or days) of rain and underbrush so I finally bought some GoreTex here because the price was right.
I bought the size small and I'm 5'5" and 115lbs with long arms. It fits well over layers and the hood fits over a helmet, or cinches down around my head nicely. The extra space in the upper arms and shoulders make me look like a wrestler, but it also allows for complete freedom of movement and is very comfortable. The pit zips are an excellent feature.
I wish the zippers were completely waterproof, but they may perform fine, I just haven't had the chance yet to try the jacket out in heavy rain. The velcro at the sleeves also seems like it might not stand up to hard wear.
Overall, this seems like a quality piece of gear and I'm expecting it to get years of good use.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by chilijan from Central Oregon on Tuesday, May 24, 2016Lightweight Gore-tex jacket. It is a good fit for me with wider shoulders and narrower hips. I love that it has vent zips that are full length down both sides for great ventilation. Will be a great outer layer in wet weather and easy to put in my pack because its light weight and packs up fairly small. I have several OR pieces and like their stuff. Nice color on this too a burgandy type color.
Reviewed by Quickbeam from Wisconsin on Tuesday, May 26, 2015I love the lilac color of this jacket; it is truly lovely. I got it in a Large. I am 5'8", 155, a true 12. I have a very large bust which I was fearful would be an issue. No worries there, this jacket is downright baggy in the chest, shoulders and arms. The hip and waist are very tight on me. I'd not be able to wear unless I unzipped the sides. This is a very unusual fit problem got me. I love the integral hood, the pit zips and the overall usefulness of the features. I am debating keeping this because of the tight to constricted fit in the hip. Probably best for straight figures with narrow hips.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Thayer the country kid in the city from Brooklyn on Thursday, March 5, 2015This jacket is a bit tight around the neck if you like wearing big scarves. I wish it was a bit longer too so my rear end is covered when it is raining. And I wish the pockets were bigger so I could fit my wallet in the inside zip pocket. Big inside mesh pockets for sun glasses or wallets would be terrific. But I think those are my only complaints so far.
I did use it today, while it was snowing and the hood cranked down well and the long vents worked great with my back pack belted down. When I started to get sweaty I simply unzipped the pit/side zips from the bottom up and cooled down nicely. The whole reason I bought this jacket was for those special "poncho" pit zips and I was super impressed with how well they worked (once I managed to unzip them with the waterproof zippers being stiff and all water-proofish). The maroon color is a nice natural color compared with all the bright jackets out there.
Overall I think this will be a good jacket. I do love Outdoor Research!
Question & Answer
“Is the desert sunrise/mulberry really hot pink??? It looks like it in the picture. I do not like pink...but if it's more of a dull maroon or something, I'd be ok with it. ”
The Sunrise/Mulberry does look pink to my eye.
Yes Rebecca, this jacket has pit zips.
Armpit to cuff is 20.5 inches
I measured the sleeves from the mid point on the back of the neck to the wrist and it is 35 inches. From the midpoint of the underarm to the wrist is 22 inches. My coat is a large. I am 5'11" and small of frame. I wear size 8, but got this jacket in a large so that I could wear a down sweater underneath. It works great for this and is not too large when worn by itself. The hat has a good brim, too. That is important to me as I wear glasses and like to keep them dry.
On my medium, I measured 21.5 inches. Hope this helps!
Forgot to add - the 21.5 inches was from the inside (armpit) to end of sleeve.
This item is not designed to pack into itself.
“STP description says performance shell + pro shell goretex, but every other place I look says it's goretex paclite+pro shell. Is this an older version with performance shell and pro shell or is it really a paclite shell + pro shell?”
This is an older version with the performance shell.
