Reviewed by Sara from Germany on Friday, February 5, 2016I have had this jacket for 3 years now. No complaints-its a nice soft shell jacket. I like that it has longer sleeves-some jackets are too short in the sleeve length for me.

Reviewed by Boston traveler from Massachusetts on Friday, April 4, 2014I bought this jacket to have something for extra warmth that is water-resistant for camping and in the city. I expected it to be black, but it is actually a charcoal gray. It's not a bad color, but wasn't what I wanted. Overall, the fit is flattering, but the jacket is a little stiff and shorter than I might like (I'm 5' 8"). I haven't decided whether to keep it or not. It seems like it would be great for cooler nights, and is lightweight and packable. However, I really was hoping for a black jacket.
Reviewed by Madison Backpacker from Madison, WI on Sunday, March 30, 2014I was so excited to receive this coat, but when I actually pulled it out of the packaging I thought the order had been messed up. Turns out, "black" is not actually black according to OR, but more of a charcoal gray color. Also, the sizing was wildly off--I am a size small in every other coat I own, but when I zipped this up it would barely fit around my hips, and I was sure to check the size recommendations for this product. Definitely returning it, extremely disappointed.

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Alpinist Wannabe Wendy from The rolling hills of Wisconsin. on Thursday, October 18, 2012This was bought specifically for climbing and mountaineering, although it goes under a waterproof shell for ice climbing. OR would do well to improve their women's fit. This is my second OR soft shell and I seem to be bursting around the bust while the tail is short and exposed, so I went up a size (although I would normally be a small with a 34-inch chest circumference). A climbing shell should easily tuck and readjust under a harness. Regardless, the jacket is beautifully and solidly constructed, as can be expected from OR. The Cirque will be the first jacket to grab for any outdoor activity, including skiing and running when the temperatures drop and the wind is up.
- Best Uses: Around town, Climbing, Mountaineering
- Cons: Short length, Unflattering fit
- Pros: Brilliant color, packable, Solid Construction
