    Details

    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.

    • Left hand pocket doubles as stuff sack

    Great Spring Climbing Jacket

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

    This jacket works perfectly for spring climbing. I wear this from early in the morning to well into the night, and remain comfortable all the way through. Thus far I have used it mainly for long days of multi pitch trad, and it performs very well. The jacket is quite thin but still blocks wind well, this also makes the jacket lightweight and highly breathable which is a definite boon when you are moving quickly and working up a sweat on easier pitches. I have worn this over a base and mid-layer, and I can confirm that the fit is great with or without layers. Additionally the jacket is very stretchy which is great for articulation and mobility. As far as durability goes, I have had no problems thus far. The material seems to handle abrasion well which is nice on more moderate routes or crack/chimney climbs where you spend a lot of time leaning into and scraping against the rock.

    All in all a fantastic jacket, and with the price you just cant go wrong!

    Great Spring Climbing Jacket

    Nice Jacket

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large

    thin, not a lot of insulation lots of stretch, pretty amazing jacket for the price. i'm about 185 lbs of athletic build and it is hard to find jackets that fit well around the shoulders/chest without pinching my arm pits, this one fits great in a size large and isn't silly loose (a challenge for me)

    Great lightweight jacket

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

    Lightweight, waterproof and breathable! Wore it out today on a hike 36°f comphy with a fleece underneath! Fits snugly, wish I got it in XXL...

    Great Jacket

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

    I wear this everywhere. It is great touring around at high elevation, great as a style piece, great as really anything you want it to be! Its a really breathable soft shell. I love how the hoody is constructed, very stylish when it is all zipped up.

    Thin and stretchy

    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large

    I got the Glacier/Night color and it works great as a windbreaker (and replaced the others I had). It also works really well as a thin softshell over a fleece or thin insulated jacket. The pocket layout is nice. It is very stretchy and allows for a huge range of motion.

    I always run cold, so it can be too breathable for me at times. I may not get the same use from it as others, since I grab something with more wind stopping power when it gets cold, but I still love the fabric, look, and fit when the conditions are right for it.

    Perfect jacket for Backcountry skiing

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

    I really like this jacket. I have worn it ski touring at 10,000' in the Wasatch on a cool/cold day with some wind. I really like the fact it breathes so well, much better than a Gore -Tex hard shell jacket, but it still blocks the wind.

    Love this jacket!

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

    Perfect softshell jacket because it's light, and it stowaways in it's own pocket! what more could you ask for, and the quality is by far the best I've seen. bravo outdoor research for creating another gem in your line up.

    Superb jacket

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: large

    Excellent jacket perfect for all seasons. The material is very thin, breathable, and lightweight. In Southern California it's the perfect 3 season outerwear.

    My new favorite jacket

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

    "Wow" is all I can say about this jacket. It's everything I've been looking for and more. Living in the southeast, this jacket has turned into my favorite piece by far, it's perfect. I wanted something that allowed me to do athletic activities while keeping me warm. I can layer underneath if I want to go hiking in the mountains or just a tee shirt if I'm walking around the town.

    The fit is perfect; it's definitely an athletic fit, but that's why I like it so much. No unnecessary bulkiness, it's just right. It responds so well to movement, I've never had a jacket that is this responsive. Ultimately, I can't recommend this product enough; weather you're layering underneath or using it around the town, you can't go wrong with this jacket. Definitely will be getting more OR products in the future.

    Couldn't ask for a better light jacket

      I absolutely love this thing! I've now bought 3 different colors because I can't get over how much I use them. One of them is with me at just about all time from April-October. If I'm out and it gets just a little colder or windy, or low moisture, and this thing is perfect. Honestly from 45-70 degrees it works. Super comfy and all.

      Great lightweight layer!

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

      I loved this Ferrosi jacket...picked it up kind of on impulse (got a good deal on it). I say "loved" because I lost it in Tanzania! This was a great outer layer for my Kilimanjaro trek - it worked well because it was dry and not too windy up above the cloud layer. Wouldn't use it in extremely wet conditions. Very lightweight, breathable, and stuffable into my pack. I wore it to the summit as a windbreaking layer over my micropoof and a couple other layers. As usual, a great product from OR. I plan to replace it. Hopefully a porter or local guide is getting good use out of it on the mountain!

      Great lightweight layer!

      Great Lightweight Jacket

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

      This jacket's killer! I wore it out a few times climbing and it was great. I felt unhindered with any movement and it breathes nicely. It's stylish, super light and surprisingly warm. It fits snug but has room for some layers. Perfect for chilly, active days. I can't wait to get more use out of it!

      Part of my Hoody Hall of Fame

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

      I bought this on a whim years ago but it quickly turned into my all time favorite. Wind and waterproof enough for most conditions and quick-drying for back to back use. I took it to Alaska and Europe and a lot of places in between. Unfortunately it was lost a year or so ago and I haven't recovered since.

      Hey Eric,

      Thanks for the great review! Although the Ferrosi is highly wind resistant and has a DWR on it, it's not waterproof, so I didnt want folks to think that. It's goal is breathability and versatility, which I think is what you loved! Grab a new on!

      Most versatile and useful item in quiver

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

      I can honestly say that I there are very few situations or outdoors adventures where I take something other than my Ferosi. Its warmth, wind blocking ability, water repellent fabric combined with its durability, mean that its the swiss army knife of my layering wardrobe. Its amazing how many pitches or alpine rock and spring ski touring days my jacket has seen. In the Cascades, its even a great mid-winter uphill layer. Can't upvote this thing enough. Get the pants too. You won't be disappointed.

      Never Taking out my Hardshell

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

      This was my first softhsell. I wanted greater breathability and functionality than my hardshell, so I decided to try out the Ferossi. It has a great combination of water resistance, wind resistance and breathability. It is ideal in alpine conditions (pouring rain excluded) because it has the toughness to stand up to the elements. So far, it has beaded off light to moderate showers no problem. I like the range of movement and breathability.

      I've used this jacket extensively in the Cascades now, from early season Enchantment peakbagging to climbing through clouds and mist on Sahale in North Cascades National Park. It has now replaced my hardshell in all but select situations.

      I think this jacket is very useful if you are a fast-and-light alpinist who is concerned about breathability above all else. It provides usually a sufficient amount of protection and is much more desirable than a hardshell. However, it doesn't replace your hardshell, so keep that in mind. Highly recommend.

      Amazing!

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

      This is my new favorite jacket! Super versatile, repels light rain, wind, great in a huge range of temps, drys super quick, comfy, lightweight, breathes AMAZING, looks cool - just perfect. I can't recommend this jacket highly enough.

      Great all around light weight soft shell

      • Size Bought: M

      Have been looking for a soft shell, which is light, super breathable, super water resistant, simple jacket. This Ferrosi jacket meets all above criteria. I ordered the M size black(5.5' 137lb). Although small might suit me, with this jacket, I can layer insulation for winter. I wear it work and hiking.

      Killer deal for certain conditions.

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

      Simple, lightweight, and super affordable. I dig this jacket due to how casual it is to wear and barely feels like I'm wearing anything (13oz). I wear this on the way to the office, or when I am biking around town in slightly windy conditions due to how breathable it is.
      However, this soft shell is far from waterproof and barely repels water. If you were to wear this in the rain or snow, you would be soaked within an hour.

      Could anyone tell me if this jacket is noisy? I intend to wear it as a layer while photographing wildlife, and cannot use any fabrics that whisp or crinkle when moving or when my arms brush against my sides.

      Thanks!

      Hi Susurrus,



      I have the hoody and love it! It's in no way noisy or crinkly. No loud fabric or dangling zippers. They may make a slight "whisp" but no more than any other soft/quiet material.



      Feel free to reach out to me directly.

      been eying off this jacket for some time...

      been eying off this jacket for some time now, looks like this is the newer version (straight up zipper, not curved like previous model)

      would a size SMALL fit my athletic build.

      im 5'9, 158 lbs, 39 inch chest

      i guess since its got good stretch i could go for the small ?

      cheers
