Ordered this in small/black for my 5'8" <120 pound teen daughter. Even at STP it was an investment (undoable otherwise), but I was looking for that "final" ski jacket to take her on through the rest of her growth, and that also has all the features she will want for years to come. We may just have... Read More

    Too early to put it through its paces in the cold and snow, but the jacket looks amazing and is very, very well put together like everything from OR. The jacket does run large as others have said. This was a purchase for my wife. She is 5'3" and reasonably thin, so we got the XS. It is barely small enough for her, hoping that with a layer underneath it works well. Other than getting the right size I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this jacket for winter wear, especially at the crazy prices you sometimes get on STP.

    Haven't had a chance to use it yet (purchased during a summer sale) in winter weather, but really happy with the jacket so far. It's surprisingly lightweight for such a sturdy jacket. Fit is true to specifications, obviously made of high quality materials. Only downside I can see is that the cross vent zippers are a bit tricky to zip up and down, due to the angle of the zipper.

    Over the years, I have owned ski jackets by most of the major manufacturers--Patagonia, Mountain Hardwear, etc. This may be the best one yet. The construction is absolutely bomber: durable yet flexible material, taped seams, waterproof zippers, etc. Lots of pockets and venting. You'll need an insulating layer for cold days, but it's great with just a light layer for spring skiing. Personally, I like that flexibility. I like the look, too. I have the black with cobalt trim, and it's sharp. Based on this jacket, I will probably look at Outdoor Research brand first from now on.

    I purchased this jacket primarily to update my ski/cold weather activity wear. I am 5'10", 165#, smallish chest and long arms, so initially purchased the blue in a large. When it arrived I was disappointed to find it was just too big - I don't like gear flapping around when I'm skiing - so had to send back for a medium, in black. The medium fits perfectly - slimming, can still fit warm layers under, the sleeves are nice and long, and ski flap fits just right over my size-10 booty! The blue was pretty but the black with the blue contrast is really beautiful and I get many compliments on it. The colors are true to the online photos. Lots of great pockets for gear/phone/etc. I have had no problem with the zippers. This jacket is very warm and wind-proof in our sub-zero South Dakota temps and was a great value for the $. Quality seems excellent. I am looking forward to getting many years of use from it!

    This is by far the nicest jacket I've ever owned. The sizing is a bit large, but it's nice to have room for layering. I have used it is sleet and rain and it is totally waterproof. The color is great! Lots of nice features and pockets.

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.
