Love it so far

I just got this layer. So far I think it is great. I got it to be a full zip version of my R1 Hoddie but more able to shed snow when I am ski touring in the winter.

The back and underarms is a thin waffle fleece similar to R1. The hard face front hood and arms is very thin, but tightly woven, Its soft on the inside and very smooth on the outside. I am curious to see how well this material breaths.

The zipper is fine, but feels a bit flimsy, no problems so far.

Hand and chest pockets are great, thumb loops are comfortable. Hood fits well.

I am 5'8 140 lbs I take a small.

The Greatest Layering piece ever created

I love this Jacket under a shell for warmth or by itself for spring skiing.
Plus it doubles as a balaclava under my ski Helmet.

Great jacket!

Best mid-layer

Love this piece. Whether it's spring slush or deep pow, this is a go-to layer for a good day. This piece breathes well, fits snug and keeps me warm and dry for long adventures. I especially dig the thumb holes, chest pocket (for my i-phone) and functional hood.

I am 6ft 170lbs do you thing I should go with a medium or a large?

Responded on

Large. The Cerntrifuge runs a touch small so if you are on the border between sizes, Large is the way to go.

Sadly returned

I was very happy with w this product as both a mid layer and outer layer for heavy workouts. However after a week of ownership and wear, I noticed the moisture wicking fabric on the back and underarms started to get a pilling like effect from abrasion from normal wear. This brought into question the longevity of the piece so I had to return it. I really like the large collar that you can breath thru. It was a nice touch. I wish the wind proof fabric made up the bottom of the jacket to offer more abrasion resistance…

Outdoor Research Centrifuge Jacket

Posted on

Outdoor Research® Climbing Ambassador Shingo Ohkawa talks about his favorite Outdoor Research® jacket, the Centrifuge Jacket™. Built for highly aerobic alpine activities like climbing and backcountry skiing, the Centrifuge Jacket™ features wind- and weather-resistant hard-faced fleece on the chest and front torso, but highly air-permeable Radiant LT Fleece™ on the back, side, underarms and face panel. Also featuring an alpine cut and a close-fitting balaclava-style hood, the Centrifuge™ is the ideal layer for traveling fast and light in less-than-ideal conditions.

Great Mid-weight Layer

Pros : Good additional layer, Durable, Warm, Hood, Comfortable, Thumb loops, breathable

Best Uses : Mtn Climbing, Hiking, ski touring, Skiing, Climbing

I've used this hoody about 25 days now in the field. I really like it for ski touring. Works great as a breathable layer for the uphill and then keeps me warm for the downhill as well. I've also been using this jacket while cragging and mountaineering. I did a Rainier climb in April and wore this layer the whole time. I wish the zipper pulls were bigger as they are hard to un-zip with gloves on.

I've always been a fan of the R1 Hoody, this is very similar but a hybrid version of that.

Overall I really like this layer and plan on using it on many climbs and trips to come!

Nice high speed piece

Think of this as a hybrid fleece/wind shell. Does a little of both, so obviously this marriage results in a great piece for high octane pursuits like mtn biking or ski touring. I just layer up at the top, wear a long sleeve thin poly pro underneath. It works for this because it is not too warm. Fun piece, it takes a beating too.
