Outdoor Research Stormbound Down Jacket - Waterproof, 650 Fill Power (For Men)
Closeouts. Outdoor Research's Stormbound down jacket deals with changing weather conditions with ease. Its waterproof Pertex® Shield shell packs goose down and synthetic Thermore® insulation in targeted areas for supreme warmth and weather resistance where it's most needed. Fully sealed seams, a DWR coating and water-resistant zippers provide an extra barrier against moisture.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Alex the Runner from Virginia on Saturday, December 24, 2016This jacket is fantastic. I've worn it in temps as low as minus 17f (ambient) and I've been comfortable with proper layering. The jacket shell appears to be quite durable. It held up extremely well to branches and brush while riding an ATV in the woods so I'm sure it will survive backcountry hiking and can take anything your city has to throw at it. Depending on where you research this jacket you'll see that it has waterproof zippers and a built in balaclava - it does not have either. Still a great jacket though. I had no problems yet with rain getting into the zippers, but finding out there's no balaclava in minus 17 was a let-down.
The jacket fits very well. I bought the medium and it fits my 6' 170lb frame very well. The sleeves fit very well, but I have a +4 ape index
If you find this coat on sale - buy it.

Reviewed by Snow Rider from South Lake Tahoe on Thursday, December 1, 2016I love OR gear because I am 6'4" and weight 190 #. OR tends to make clothing that is longer in the sleeves and inseam than other top rated gear. For example, a Mountain Hardware jacket has sleeves that barely come to my wrists in size XL, while this jacket in XL provides enough sleeve length to allow me to put my sleeves over the cuff of my gloves and not come off even with full range of arm motion. I have had this jacket out skiing in 19 degrees with the regular underlayer and a light down vest and I was perfectly comfortable. Oh yea, the wind was about 15 mph too. I would definitely recommend this jacket, for the more "ape-like" person who likes longer sleeves. If you have short arms or legs, buy Mountain Hardware stuff!!!
Verified Buyer Reviewed by CHUNCHEN from CC on Thursday, October 27, 2016The texture of the clothes is very good, but the sleeves are too long.
