    Details

    The jacket you want for mellow mountain days.

    Not all mountain activities require ultralight, super-techy clothing, and the Outdoor Research Men's Vindo Insulated Hooded Jacket gets that with a construction that works well when you're out for a late season hike or stoking the campfire after another epic day of mountain biking. Its unique two-layer shell is made with a blend of wool and synthetic materials that protect against wind and remain breathable enough to wear when you hike. The Vindo is insulated with an eco-friendly polyester insulation that will retain insulating properties if it happens to get a little wet, while an embossed taffeta lining at the hood and back yoke ensures a soft and comfortable fit where it matters most. Lock the hem and hood down when you need to fend off the chills and throw all the marshmallows, graham snacks, and chocolate bars you want in the two hand and single chest pocket for lightning fast s'more assembling.

    • Synthetic insulation (43% recycled polyester)

    Sizing on point

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

    I was a little weary of other reviews saying that this fits a little big... I'd disagree. I have 3 other OR hoodies - all size large - so naturally I kept the good thing going and placed an order for a large. I'm 6 feet, 185lbs, 34 waist, and 34/35 sleeve length. This hoodie fits perfectly. There's enough room to fit a crew sweatshirt or mid base layer under this, or wear it with a t-shirt and it's not bulky. The sleeve length is perfect and it seems very well constructed. I can only give this a 4 star rating because other than wearing it for an hour inside an feeling pretty toasty, I haven't had any experience with it. I just wanted to quell some of the sizing woes people might have.

    The only thing that seems poorly designed to me is that the inside of the collar is lined with the same wool blend on the outside of the jacket (under the arms). OR lined the inside of the jacket underneath the arms with fleece rather than keeping with the wool inside as well (presumably to avoid any itchiness), which is great. But why wouldn't they recognize this with the neck area - an area that can be very sensitive for most people. Needless to say, when I wore it for that hour I didn't notice any discomfort, but it just seems like an oversight. Overall, great fit, great construction, and great price.

    Looks very nice, but very large arms.

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: L

    Jacket looks very good, but the fit is large and the arms are comically large. Very long sleeves and very wide at the openings, with no way to tighten.

    Nice looking jacket, medium function.

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

    I'm 6' 1" and 167 pounds, soooo pretty tall and lean/lanky (whatever you wanna call it). I purchased a Medium from a local shop for $70 and the sleeves are fine. I would have liked them just a half an inch longer but this is fine. I've got about a 34 inch length arm from shoulder to wrist (I believe) and medium is great. This jacket has a nice fit without being too slim to layer under or too baggy that it looks stupid. I layered a thick base layer and another polyester hoody underneath this this weekend.

    Function, This past weekend, the day started out a 35 degrees with 15-20 mph winds (with a base layer and fleece hoody underneath) and this jacket did great! it was very windproof and warm. I have another cheap down jacket (real down) that wind just blows straight through. That jacket packs into about half a nalgene. I would say these jacket packs down to about a full nalgene if you really work at it (but it's still jacket so you can stuff it into the corners of your pack where nothing else can go.

    Look: This is probably the best part of this jacket, the wool on the back of the sleeves and accents looks good in my opinion. It's lined with fleece on the inside so it's not scratchy, don't worry.

    Worries: I'm not sure I have any...

    pros: looks good, good outer wind layer, synthetic insulation should stay warm if wet, price.

    cons: wool is not water repellant like body (I believe), not the most packable for multi pitch climbing or backpacking.

    All in all, I would recommend this to someone looking for a nice city or weekend jacket. One that's nice and warm, with hoodie, but isn't looking to spend $200+ on a jacket.

    Hey there - you kind of nailed it here - this jacket was made for the looks first, and function second! Much more of an "after activity piece" but you certainly can use it as you have. Just know that it was not designed to have all the techy bells and whistles on it. Great piece though - thank you for writing!

    Gorilla arms fit

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: XL

    I'm 6' and 200 lbs with 32-33" sleeves. Ordered an XL like several other OR jackets that I have had. The fit is bizarre, with sleeves about 4-5" too long. Seems nicely made but has large wool side panels that are difficult to see in the pictures. Overall, I can't imagine who this is designed to fit....
