It is not practical :(

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

I bought this jacket for a gift to my wife and I wanted her has a great jacket for winter season at Chicago City, But The zipper of the jacket is a big problem everythime that she want to put the jacket and close the zip. The zipper close bitten the inter part of the jacket, it is a big problem when she want to wear the jacket.

She doesn't like the jacket for this reason. It isn't work properly when she need to use everyday outside with temp 14 Fahrenheit.

The last time that she had used the jacket the zip bit the fabric jacket.

What can I do now ? How does Outdoor Research fix this problem ?

The quality and material are well made.

Good Warmth with Wind stopping

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

I have the model previous to this one and love it - The newer model has some bonuses that the one I have does not. This version has an better zippers and pockets - definitely both a plus.

This jacket has excellent warmth/weight - not as good as an Arc'teryx atom LT but this serves a different purpose. It makes a great outer layer in windy, cold days. It sheds light cold snow very well - wet snow will wet it out (that's what a hard shell is for!).

The great thing about this jacket is that you get a big bang for your buck - good insulation AND wind stopping -- perfect for brutally cold days in winter even when it's a bit wet. I prefer it over some of my down jackets and any of my other insulating layers because it is more versatile and still very pack-able and light.

Can't go wrong if you're looking for an affordable insulated jacket that will be excellent in the wind.

I had read reviews that this jacket is fitted and runs small. Is that what you found?

Hi Evelyn - I didn't think it ran that small but was exactly what I expected for a jacket that would work as an outer layer or as a mid layer with a hardshell over top - it's not a very loose fit jacket but in my "normal" size (I tend to be between sizes and ordered up so that may factor in a bit here too) I can still fit a layer or two under... My biggest complaint is that the zipper is a little finicky.

Bundled to profection

Bundled to profection

I got this jacket to be a mid to light insulating layer that cut the wind. Works GREAT for that purpose. Here I am bundled up at the top of Mt. Liberty on a particularly cold winter day. Jacket is perfectly loose to fit ample layers as needed.

With the windstopper I find myself warmer in this than in jackets with higher insulation (100g to 180g) simply because of the cutting of the wind!

Diggin the orchid color that's now out - but the blue does the job equally well :)
