Already love this jacket

I've only worn this jacket a few times and it's exactly what I was looking for - a warm layer for alpine climbs and AT skiing in cold conditions. The breathable back is the best for staying dry with a pack on. The fit is perfect for me, I'm 5'10", 170 lb and have kinda long arms and the medium is ... Read More

    Perfect option as a lightweight, sorta water-resistant, breathable layer that you can skin uphill all day in. Throw a shell over for the descent and repeat. Quality and fit are solid.
  • Zipper uncomfortable

    Seems like typically high-quality OR product, but the fit is questionable. First of all it's easily 2" longer than described, so it doesn't hit just below the waist like the model's but further down the thigh, meaning it sticks out if you want to wear this as a midlayer. And it's designed to be form-fitting so hard to wear it over too many other layers.

    The hood is quite snug but unusual in that the zipper goes up at an angle. Not something you couldn't get used but weird. Also it's not clear from the pictures but the accent color is basically the entire (breathable) back panel. You might not care but I found the overall aesthetic peculiar.
  • Fantastic quality but...

    First, I loved the materials and quality and general design of this jacket. Some very well-thought out features included the close-fitting hood, great quality zippers and general trim/ alpine fit. Thumb holes, yay! And have no doubts about the Centrifuge Jacket's ability to keep me warm, and with a breathable fabric that regulates moisture in both active and stationary modes. Super well-made, I can see this jacket lasting through the rigors. Not thrilled with the offset zipper, or a full length zipper in general. Would have preferred this jacket as a pullover with neck zip only in order to be more versatile—doubling as outer- or mid-layer.

    That said, I had issues with the fit. I'm 5'7" at about 163 lbs. The Medium (M) fit my shoulders and torso just the way I would like them breadth-wise. Close hugging, but just enough room for a light-medium merino base layer. The alpine fit meant I could also add more layers over the Centrifuge, too. The lengths, however, seemed tailored more for someone about 5 inches taller @ around 6'. Both torso and arms (sleeves) were about 3-4 inches too long for me. My guess is this is the perfect jacket for someone with very slender build, between 5'10" to 6'2" tall, and weighing between 160-170lbs.

    I have several other Outdoor Research products that fit great in a Medium (M). This one just didn't. So with a tearful eye, must return this otherwise awesome jacket.

About Outdoor Research

The concept for Outdoor Research was devised in 1981 when climber Ron Gregg’s planned ascent of Denali was cut short, ending prematurely with his frostbitten partner being airlifted off a glacier. The cause was a faulty pair of gaiters. During his descent, Gregg resolved himself to create better gear, a resolution that soon led him to build the first pair of award-winning Outdoor Research gaiters. The concept was simple: Make outdoor apparel and gear with a clear focus on reliability. In the many years since, this brand has continued to blaze new trails with cutting-edge products that now include Outdoor Research gloves, jackets, backpacks and Outdoor Research hats, all engineered to exceed expectations in the most demanding conditions on the planet.
