If you run cold, look elsewhere

I purchased a Virtuoso two years ago for the purpose of a belay jacket while mountaineering. I shopped around at other brands but couldn't find anything with these features at the price I found. Sadly, I've been sorely disappointed with it. Whether wearing it on top of layers, by itself, or sleeping in it, I've never been warm.

While I'm generally a colder person, my thinner, synthetic jackets (specifically the Arc'teryx Atom AR) have proven to be far warmer. Clearly, everyone's experience is different and unique. Because of this, don't simply take my word for it - research thoroughly and try-on as you can.

Hey Darick, really sorry you had a not so good experience with this jacket. We do have a specific belay jacket with primaloft and windstopper, but as you say above, price was a concern. I have the women's version and I run cold, so its been a good one for me! Thank you for taking the time to write!

Great jacket

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Height: 5' 10"
    Weight: 160 lbs
    Size Purchased: Large

I'm 510 160 w 61 wingspan. Large fits perfect. Very warm and durable. I beat the crap out of it though bouldering through winters and put multiple holes in it from branches to lantern burns. Eventually, after 3 years the zippe broke. I sent the jacket full of patches back to OR and they replaced it brand new bc of the zipper failure. OR stands by their products and I would buy from them again. I have footage of me sending the gill egg dyno in this jacket in -5 degrees But I can't upload it

Super Warm. Packable!

Excellent product! Used it several times for winter backcountry/mountaineering trips. Perfect Belay Jacket. As soon as I stop moving, this comes out and goes over everything. It packs small(ish) into its own pocket. It also fit under my hardshell (XL Arcteryx Alpha SV) when we got caught in a surprise blizzard.
A MUST for cold-weather backcountry trips. Also works great around town :)

Zipper work fine!

Love this jacket! I have had no zipper issues. I've stayed warm at camp with negative temps and it packed up well for when I was on the go.

Does this jacket have a removable hood?

No it does not, but it lays flat if that helps.

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: True to size

I am so disgusted with this product. I could not even zip the jacket. I kept trying and trying to get the zipper to work and eventually I could get the zipper to work about one out of three tries. Not exactly a great feature when you are in the cold and trying to get it to work.

Does this jacket come with a hood?


Yes, this has a hood.
