JessWwrote a review of Outdoor Research Palisade Jacket - Women's on September 7, 2011
The green is even nicer in person - much more of a classic Kelly green or pine, not so turquoise-ish as my monitor shows. I got this to replace my Marmot PreCip - which is a great jacket, but got totally ruined in pine sap, and also had some weird pocket issues. Honestly it's so similar I'm having no regrets.
I was on a budget this time, and the sale price got me. One thing I'll say is the size is smaller than Marmot's sizing - I got a L - and while I wore my Marmot jacket snowboarding last year with layers underneath, this will not be good for much more than maybe one or two very thin layers. Also - I'm an easy 12, can fit in bigger 10s - and this L would not be advisable for a large 12 or small 14. Sleeves are not as long as my other jacket, I can't pull it over my hand past thumb base... but that's probably good for hiking and more active uses. Good tech components, like velcro at sleeves, side vents, and pockets.
