    Incredibly Lightweight

    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: small

    This jacket was bought for my girlfriend who was looking for a good softshell. It wasn't exactly what she was looking for, but it is incredibly light and comfortable. Perfect for backpacking and adventuring !

    Best lightweight softshell

      This is a great jacket. No way around it.

      It's light, breathable, and kills the wind. I've had mine for over a year now and was just reminded how awesome it is when I was on a boat offshore the other day when it was 40-50 degrees and windy and all I needed was this over a long sleeve shirt to stay warm because once the wind was cut by the jacket all was good in the world.

      My husband forgot his and was jealous.

      Best lightweight softshell

      All around-er

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

      I take my Ferossi on almost every outdoor pursuit. From hiking in Torres del Paine to ice climbing in Vermont. This softshell is super light and VERY breathable. Its great for cold, windy days that you're doing high cardio activities or a light shell for climbing. The fit is athletic and is easy to layer under and over. The stretchy material makes it an awesome shell to rock climb in, without feeling any restriction in the arms or back.

      After a good wash, this jacket is also reasonably waterproof for wetter ice climbing days or light rain. Dries super fast also!

      All around-er

      Softshell for every kind of activity

      My girlfriend Sunnie uses the ferrosi jacket for just about everything. It is very breathable, yet blocks a chilly wind incredibly well. A great piece for someone looking to stay out longer while staying comfortable!

      Softshell for every kind of activity

      Great aerobic layer

        my wife loves her ferrosi. we live at 7k feet and the jacket is great for sun and wind protection, even when it's warm out. Also, she said she can run or bike in cool weather without overheating, and ski or snowshoe in warm weather and still be comfy. plus, the material is really stretchy and works well for climbing.

        the jacket does not provide much insulation or precipitation protection, so look somewhere else if that's what you need.

        Perfect for Spring

        • Fit: True to size

        This is the perfect hoody for when a cool spring breeze is blowing. The technical fabric blocks both light rain and wind, and it's stretchy, durable and breathable. It doesn't snag or get hung up on rocks or when hiking through dense trees (I live in a forest). It has two comfortable zippered hand pockets and a zippered chest pocket. It's lightweight, and one of the pockets doubles as a stuff sack, so it can be tossed in a pack and forgotten about until it's needed. The arm and body length is perfect, and the shape is flattering (not too tight or baggy). I got mine in Alpine Lake / Night, which is a gorgeous color combination.

        I love the Ferrosi ! Now I have two!

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

        I bought my first Ferrosi Jacket (brown and black) a few years ago and have really put it through the wringer. It is my "go to" crag and alpine rock climbing jacket. This jacket has been washed a bajillion times and the fabric has not pilled and it is still water resistant. So if this jacket is so great why did I need another one? I really wanted to put a splash of color in my climbing life...and climbing photos! I went with the adobe red and it is sweet! I do not have any issues with the Ferrosi fabric on my skin (see the other review) and think it is a very comfortable jacket. I think it is a great choice for climbing, hiking, backpacking and just tooling around town.

        Very nice jacket

        • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
        • Fit: True to size

        I had been looking forward to trying the Ferrosi jacket in a non-colorblocked and not black version and ordered the Adobe red. Adobe is a good name for this red, a really nice red with just a hint of orange.

        It is a great jacket, good fit, stretchy enough for comfort, nice weight, hood fits, and the sleeves are long enough for my a little bit long arms. The downside for me is that with a short sleeved shirt the jacket's fabric feels scratchy on my arms, it made me want to take the jacket off immediately. I think most people won't mind the fabric but for me it is a deal breaker. I am sadly returning the jacket.

        Nice light shell

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

        Great fit, easy to layer but not bulky, breathable, cuts the wind, super light, long enough for my arms, water resistant. I made it out for my first climb of the spring, slipped and slid sideways on some mud. Was bummed because I was meeting a friend later at a bar, with no time for a costume change. No mud or signs of my slip on my jacket by the time I got to the bar! Can't beat self-cleaning gear.

        Awesome little jacket

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        This jacket is a must for any active person. I have the collared version, and I love it and use it for climbing, hiking, biking, and around town. It packs into its pocket with a little carabiner loop for an added bonus, and I just throw it into my climbing pack whenever I'll need something to block the wind or a drizzling rain. This thing rocks! The fabric has done well on climbs and after a few washes, it's still done a superb job of keeping its fit. Sizing seems a little roomy, but that's how I like it so I can layer underneath if needed.

        Awesome little jacket

        Versatile protection and durable

          This shell is so useful and so effective! I use it for everything: sport and alpine climbing, hiking/backpacking, wearing around town, and even motorbiking! It's durable enough to wear shimmying up cracks and chimneys and stylish enough to wear in town. At 11.2oz, it's not the lightest, most packable shell on the market, but arguably more versatile and durable than something lighter. It is, however, light-weight enough that I took it with me to Thailand in lieu of other jackets?and it proved it's value there too as it's not too hot, but adds just the right warmth when needed and blocks wind so well. I often replace it for my rain jacket too since it has proven effective to keep me dry in light rain storms. Love the stretchy fabric and side zip pockets (they are big enough to hold anything I want). At 5'3? and 135lbs, I got a medium, which is pretty baggy, but still looks good and has plenty of room to layer, which was important for me. For a more fitted look, I'd go with the small. The length is good for staying put underneath a harness to block wind too.

          I wear my Ferrosi Hoody for.......

            spring ski touring, multipitch rock climbing, mountain biking, trail running and skate skiing. It's that extra subtle layer which helps cut the wind, and provides a bit of warmth. Once the body starts heating up it breathes well. The fabric is durable to abrasion and withstands many many washings.

            My Ferrosi jacket

              I'm a mixed climber in the winter and rock climber in the summer. If it's not raining...i'm wearing my ferossi hoody. I love how my jacket allows for total movement with no restriction. With its stretch fabric, in any direction, I can climb freely without hesitation. It's light, fast, and packs down nice and small for storage in my climbing bag. I think it's my favorite piece for taking the edge off on a colder day. Even in the summer, because of how well it breathes, I can sport this piece and still feel comfortable.

              Great wind and lighht rain layer

                This hoody is a great Spring/Fall layer--perfect for wind and light precipitation while breathable enough to shed excess heat when you do start warming up. I find that I rarely take it off after heating up because the lightweight softshell material breaths SO WELL!!!

                The other thing that shocked me--OR is not known for their fit, but they're starting to change it up because this jacket is cut to flatter a woman's curves. Well done OR. Well done.

                Ferrosi Hooded Jacket=Stellar Piece!

                  This piece is killer. For climbing, hiking, running, and such. The fabric is durable, breathable, and stretchy. The fit is perfect in the arms, the hood, and the length works well with a harness. I don't leave home without this piece when it's a tad chilly. I keep a chap stick in the arm pocket which has come in surprisingly handy. Buy this piece, and you WON'T regret it!

                  Ferrosi Hooded Softshell Jacket-Must Have!

                    I recommend this layer to all my clients and climbing partners. This layer is lightweight (one of the lightest softshells on the market) Cordura at 14.1oz, cuts the elements when your active, and is breathable. I take this layer on every expedition, multi-pitch climb, ski tour, trek, alpine ascent, or ski descent. It is a key layer in my system.

                    I really like the cut and how if fits under my harness, has a breast pocket, and two side pockets.

                    I like how my body can thermo regulate while using this peice.

                    The durability of the product is fantastic. The frequency I use the Ferrosi is best tells how much I like this in my quiver; after 3 years I have used it over 300 times.

                    Ferrosi Hooded Softshell Jacket-Must Have!

                    My Go-To Jacket for the mountains

                      As soon as the snow started to melt in the mountains, this has been my #1 go-to jacket for all my activities: rock climbing, hiking, and even heading out to dinner with friends. It is lightweight, yet bomb-proof... the perfect middle ground between a windshirt and a softshell. The fabric is comfortably stretchy and the cut is flattering. I used to be a lightweight windshirt person, but after ripping too many of them, I'm now sold on the Ferrosi for nearly everything.

                      I am a street size Small/4 pretty consistently, but I read precisely between a small and medium on the OR size chart for all of my measurements (35/27/37). I'd like to wear this both as a light spring/fall layer and as a wind layer over a fitted fleece or low bulk, fitted down on winter hikes. However, in general, I'd prefer things to not fit baggy. Any suggestions on sizing? Thanks!
