In 1981, physicist and mountain climber Ron Gregg witnessed his planned summit of Denali go horribly wrong as his frostbitten partner was airlifted off a glacier. The cause was a faulty pair of gaiters. During his descent, Gregg reflected on the situation and ended up forming the philosophy that would soon lead him to create award-winning Outdoor Research gaiters and outerwear. The concept was simple: build better outdoor gear with an innovative, function-first approach. Since then, this brand has continued to blaze new trails with legendary products that now include O ...

I got this for my wife. This is the perfect jacket for our climate, Western Washinton. It is insulated to provide some warmth and waterproof for the rain we get. The fit is casual enough for around town and fitted enough for snowshoeing.

I love the jacket and want to keep it, but it's a bit snug around the hips. The arm length and chest fit great, but it's too snug to fit a fleece under if I needed to. The pit zips are nice and long and the hand pockets are nicely located and the weight is ideal for 3-season hiking, but just too tight in the hips. I recommend this jacket because it's ideal for so many activities.

These are not good in snow. They seem to absorb water. I certainly didn't expect them to be waterproof or even water resistant, but I also didn't expect that they'd actually be the opposite! You can't touch snow at all in them because it instantly melts and then absorbs. These are terrible winter gloves. I wore them twice and gave up on them...perhaps they'd be ok on DRY fall day. The seams are also bulky and uncomfortable.

The color is pretty from a distance however up close you can see the black feathers and this makes the coat look stained. I am between a size 10 and 12 and ordered the large. it was too big overall especially where the sleeves meet the front of the chest. The jacket is going back.

I am 100-105lbs, 5'5" and tried the XS. The fitment in the shoulders and sleeves seemed okay, but it was a bit large on the body and waist. If I pulled back the material behind me about two inches, then it seems like it would be about right. It was a bit too big for me, but the jacket seemed soft and lightweight. Maybe it will fit someone else better.
