Verified Buyer Reviewed by gwood117 from Maine on Tuesday, January 24, 2017I am really, really pleased with this jacket, just what I was looking for. (Esp at closeout prices - thanks STP!). It's very lightly insulated, just a thin layer of microfleece laminated to a highly weather resistant shell. So think lower output activity in cool, breezy and/or drizzly weather; higher output activity by itself as it gets colder; and add layers underneath to take you well into the frigid.
The styling is really handsome and understated, it easily goes from office to sports to pub.
This is the kind of jacket Goodwill loves, because paired with a couple of weights of fleeces it can take the place of everything from a windshell to a grab jacket to a heavy ski jacket, a real "closet emptier".
Really thoughtful design, typical OR.
If I HAD to come up with cons:
1. I wouldn't hate pit zips (although it is very lightly insulated, and the way the pockets are designed with a mesh back they pretty much serve the same purpose, so I am not sure pit zips would be worth the bang for the buck)
2. I have 2 OR jackets, and neither have loops to hang your jacket on a hook.

Verified Buyer Reviewed by JJ the Missionary from West Virginia on Monday, April 27, 2015Love this jacket! Wide in the shoulders and narrow in the waist is perfect. Sleeves are plenty long for my 6'4 gorilla arms. Super soft thin fleece lining makes it quieter than most of my other soft shells.
