    When cold winter winds start to whip across the ridge you're climbing, layer up with the Outdoor Research Men's Uberlayer Insulated Hooded Jacket. Designed for high-aerobic ascents in cold winter weather, the Uberlayer is filled with a breathable and moisture-resistant Polartec Alpha insulation to keep you warm, even when you're sweating out last night's schooner of ale on the up-track. Inside the jacket is a polyester stretch mesh fabric to increase the jacket's overall breathability, while its adjustable hood helps to lock in heat when you're resting, rigging gear for the final pitch, or ripping skins before the descent. Two hands and a zippered chest pocket keep your lip balm, sunscreen, and that pepperoni stick you've been saving for the summit easily accessible.

    Very good indeed

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

    Similar in concept to the Patagonia Nano Air hoody, the Uberlayer is a little warmer, and a little more windproof. That makes it less comfortable for slouching around in, but perhaps slightly superior as an outer layer in cold weather. The wind rips right through the Nano Air so you really need a shell on top when it gets blowy. My only criticism is that the Uberlayer feels like it is cut just a little tight around the armpits. If you're a climber with big lats, or have muscular arms, you might prefer the looser fit of the Patagonia. Once you're working hard, however, you won't really notice.

    Uberlayer Saves the Day

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

    I have had this jacket for two days, so let me break it down.
    Day 1: Wear en route to climbing gym- receive compliments from friends and strangers alike.
    Day 2: Pack as a layer for an evening fly fishing outing. Almost immediately slip on a rock and fall into the river, submerging all worn clothing, and filling waders. Pull off wet clothing, and throw on the stowed Uberlayer (stowed in a dry pack). Almost immediately stop shivering. Fast forward 45 minutes- wrangle in a big ol brown trout. Does your jacket catch fish for you? If the answer to the previous question was no, you may need an Uberlayer.

    Pros:
    -Perfect combination of stretch (freedom of movement), trim fit (style), layerability (sort of a word, I googled it), and temperature regulation.
    -Lightweight, and stowes into it's own pocket for packing purposes without compromising warmth
    -Adjustable hood keeps your noggin warm when its not so pleasant outside
    -Literally saves the day

    Cons
    -Doesn't keep your toes warm when your waders are filled with water

    Although I have only had this jacket for a couple of days, I cannot say enough about it. I am 6'4, 180, and size large is spot on.
    I will update again the next time this jacket saves my life.

    Great insulation for all activities

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

    I've got this jacket and really like it. Impressed with the warmth and durability of the product. It sheds water and snow but keeps me warm.

    I used this jacket this summer while in the Alps climbing and probably have 50+ days in this jacket.

    I'm 6'1 170lbs and wear a size Large. I like the bigger size as i can fit it over my other layers.

    Looking for a good fall/winter jacket. Would this work for temps below 32 F? Wind resistance?

    Kelly, I would like to know more: will you be using this jacket actively? Skinning uphill,? running? Snowshoeing? This insulation is designed for active use, since it is air permeable, allowing your inner micro climate in the jacket to cool off and not overheat. Feel free to get specific, and I can help!

    I got a chance to try this jacket on today at my local REI store. I noticed that the rim of the hood has this bendy material. I'm really concerned that this might eventually snap after bending it too many times... Also I had a hard time stuff this jacket into itself. Has anyone had any of these issues?

    Jerry, I am so sorry that I havent gotten to your question yet! I understand your concern about the bendy material, but OR and other vendors have used this material quite a bit and it is solid. However, should anything happen to it, please know that OR will back it's products 100%. It's called our Infinite Guaranty. We will absolutely take care of you.



    Again, my apologies for the late response!

    I'm 6' 172lbs, would medium work for me?
