Description

Spring has sprung.

When snow recedes above the tree line and spring flowers bloom, replace your winter jacket with the Outdoor Research Men's Ferrosi Hooded Jacket. This water-resistant jacket sheds light spring showers and it blocks cool alpine breezes when you hike for late-season turns. The nylon/spandex softshell fabric breathes well when you're working up a sweat, and it allows for maximum mobility with its movement-mirroring stretch. Tough stretch Cordura on the shoulders and arms stands up to brushes with rock faces and ski edges. In addition, DWR coated zippers block outside moisture from seeping into vulnerable zipper seams, and the zipper is offset at the collar to prevent chafing.

  • Nylon, spandex stretch body and hood
  • Nylon Cordura, spandex stretch shoulders and lower sleeves
  • Zippered hand pockets, Napoleon pocket
  • Left hand pocket doubles as stuff sack
  • DWR coated zippers
  • Standard fit
  • Key clip

The earlier version was a better fit

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs small

I have the earlier version with the offset zipper at the neck. It's been my favorite light jacket for several years now. It fits me very well. The body is nice and snug athletic fit and the arms are long enough for my taller frame. Wanting a new one, I ordered this current version with the straight zipper. This new version fits boxy. A completely different fit. Body is wider and arms are shorter so they ride up all the time. Too bad. I've decided to return it. Would very much like to find the old version again. Anyone know where I might find a size large in black with the offset zipper?

been eying off this jacket for some time...

I suggest going with a medium based on your build. You could always get a small and a medium and return one.

perfect midlayer

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

The Ferrosi hoody is the jam for your outdoor pursuits! It's breathable and light weight, but just enough fabric and a snug fit to seal in crucial body heat. The hood is streamline and can fit under a ski or bike helmet if you are traveling light. There's a chest pocket to keep the cell phone easily accessible and warm in cold temps. Lastly, if folds down to a ball the size of your fist and tucks up in the left pocket stuff sack, to allow for more room in the pack.

Integral piece of my wardrobe

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

This jacket always makes it on a trip with me where I'm going to be doing anything high intensity, winter, fall or spring. It's pretty thin, which I like because it gives me a lot of options for layering. It also breathes incredibly. I've never felt manky or sticky while running or climbing up steep terrain while I have this jacket on. It also blocks the wind beautifully which is so key in the mountains. Finally, it stretches so well that you barely feel like you're wearing anything.

Hugely recommended because of the great fit, breathability and thickness.

What do you wear/layer under it when you do high aerobic activity?

Responded on

It all depends on the temps outside, edwp761520, but I can often get away with just a Patagonia Cap base layer underneath if I'm really putting out a lot of effort in cold weather. If I was just hiking more lightly in cold weather, I would maybe need a micro fleece like a Patagonia R1 underneath.

In fall and spring, a t-shirt or lightweight base layer would be fine.

Best lightweight soft-shell

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

I got this soft shell about a month ago. I have used it for b/c skiing, mountaineering and rock climbing. This is a great lightweight soft-shell. Super breathable and durable bet gives you the protection you need to stay warm while in the mountains.

I'm 6'1 and 165lbs and I have a size Large. Fits me good.
