Verified Buyer Reviewed by Washington Upland Hunter from Washington on Friday, November 11, 2016As advertised.
Reviewed by Fall Weather Fan from Western MA on Friday, August 5, 2016Seems 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.
Reviewed by Davey Crockett from Tennessee, California on Tuesday, July 12, 2016First, 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.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Will from New York on Tuesday, September 30, 2014I originally got this layer as a substitute for the patagonia R1 hoodie. This layer easily outperforms its patagonia competition. The wind resistance is awesome and this thing will shed light rain very well. I've biked with a backpack and it kept my back completely dry. Hood fits like a glove too.
Can't comment on durability yet, but this thing is far warmer than I expected!
