Shoulder-season adventure wear.
The shoulder seasons in the mountains can mean flurries on trail runs and cold nights around the campfire, but there are often plenty of warmer days mixed in too. Whether you're out chasing spring turns or trying to beat the snow on a late-season climbing trip, trust the Outdoor Research Men's Transfer Hooded Softshell Jacket to be your in-between companion.
This lightweight jacket comes with a water-resistant face fabric backed by a fleece lining, so you'll be protected from rain, sleet, and snow and insulated from the cold. Despite that protection, it retains the ability to breathe when you start to perspire. The jacket's clean silhouette and regular fit mean it does double duty as a casual jacket if called upon too, making it an always-appropriate investment in shoulder-season comfort.

- Q & A
What an amazing piece!
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: Large
I'm a big fan of Outdoor Research products, but this jacket in particular is absolutely fantastic. It's got a great feel to it- thin enough to be pliable like a fleece but slicker like a normal soft shell. And it look sharp- just a good cut and fit.
Where this jacket really shines is in the details. OR just nailed it, from the zipper placement to the cinch pulls to the hood to the logos- the design is on point. One really cool feature that I'm surprised they don't mention more is that the hood has a semi-rigid front/top panel, so it's not going to collapse on you. Everything about this jacket is smart.
I am 5'9", 175", 32" waist and 42" suit jacket and the Large is spot-on. I also purchased one for my wife and she loves hers as well. I liked it so much I ordered the non-hooded jacket version in another color. Outdoor Research continues to impress me.
