I have had this jacket for a week, but it seems well made, the pockets and the hood (with brim) are great. The zipper works well. The jacket breaths well when I am walking swiftly and I don't build up perspiration on my skin. I have not used the jacket in the rain yet.

Although the jacket is a... Read More

    I purchased this as a back up to my Marmot Pro Shell. This coat is slightly heavier and stiffer in material. The arm pits are very tight, but part of that is due to extra material built into the armpit so when I move my arm straight up it does not pull the bottom of the coat up my waist. This is a feature I like, and I can accept the tight feel to allow this.

    I am 6'4" and vary between the L and XL. L-Tall fits me best usually but not offered very often. This coat, size L, fits me very well, and trim. I can wear shirts and a light sweater underneath with good fit all around. I find I unzip the side zippers about 3 inches to allow access to my pant pockets, otherwise the trim fit and stiffness makes it hard to quickly reach into my pocket. I am getting used to the size zippers, but so far I like them better than the armpit zips on nearly every other coat I've owned (NF, Marmot, Mt Hdwr, Arteryx).

    The look is good, and I use it for my going to work coat as a nice coat. The green color is good.

    Pockets - well designed, deep and great access.

    Hood - works well and adjust well. I usually wear a brim hat (REI felt hat type with full brim, packable, etc).

    Zippers are the waterproof type, so they are very stiff, but should soften up in time (after about 100 zips).

    Overall, good coat for living where I do.

    The fit is good, no restrictions in the shoulders or arms. I was wondering about the side zippers when I first saw them, but after wearing the coat in the snowwindrainyday I found them very handy. And the pro shell fabric is amazing. I expect to shred this coat over the next five years, like the last one.

    The product seemed to be of a very high quality material and well made. However the fit was way off. I am 5'10" and 185 lbs. and I typically wear between a large and XL depending on brand. After reading the reviews i thought I'd play it safe and order and XL. It was very tight around the shoulders and across the upper back and was just an awkward fit. Had to return this one.

    I wanted to love this jacket. It is so well built and the price was fantastic. Sadly, the arms are way too tight and constrictive. I didn't heed the other reviews and should have. I am not jacked at all, so I figured that the tight arms would not be an issue. I was wrong. If you plan on layering at all (and you will need to if you want any warmth) then you will likely have an issue.

    Whilst probably designed for grand backcountry adventures, this jacket did a superb job in downtown London. I was there recently as a volunteer bone marrow courier and it has been the rainest weather in at least 250 years. A strong wind blew as I walked comfortably around the city. Dozens of destroyed umbrellas were visible. The jacket kept the rain and wind out and allowed me to tour the city. The hood is big enough to cover a helmet, but probably not big enough to cover the large bearskin hats of the Foot Guards protecting the Queen!

    I highly recommend this quality garment.

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.
