Here's what others have to say...

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!

Hi Melissa,

OR fits true to size for me so I suggest to order what size you normally wear in other outdoor brands. Another option is to order both sizes so you can try them on and get the best fit.

Hey Melissa, I agree with Lisa. Go with a small. If you need to change sizes, Backcountry will do that!

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.

    • 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!

    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!


    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.
