Wolverine Cirque Hybrid Insulated Jacket

Part of Backcountry's touring collection, this jacket was designed with input from Backcountry Gearheads looking for a solution to the backcountry skier's eternal struggle: staying warm without overheating. To solve the dilemma, the BC Touring jacket features stretchy, super breathable panels at the back and underarm areas and 60 grams of synthetic insulation at the core, allowing moisture to escape while we're working hard on the steeps, but trapping in precious warmth during transitions on chilly summits.

  • Stay comfortable on climbs and descents in this active mid-layer
  • Breathable stretch panels in high-sweat areas prevent overheating
  • Stretch panels offer unrestricted mobility on the skin track
  • Weather-resistant fabric repels falling flakes and chilly wind
  • Synthetic insulation works to trap body heat for reliable warmth
  • Large pockets fit seamlessly under harness or backpack
  • Gearhead Certified Product
  • Item #BCC00BZ

I first used this for a 2 week ski trip w/ use in resort and touring in the backcountry. I found this was a perfect layer for under a shell when it was cold or alone if a baselayer wasn't quite warm enough. I like that the back isn't insulated to help with breathability. I got the pirate black color in XS and found it fits true to size and is the perfect length considering I'm quite short (although w/ a long torso). One complaint I had initially was the tightness in the cuffs around my wrists but I think i've either gotten used to it or it's relaxed, one or the other. I'm overall very happy with this purchase.

THE BEST layering jacket. The back panel is lined with fleece to make it extra cozy and maintain your body temperature. Fleeced lined pockets also keep your hands or phone warm while out in the snow. Product is also DWR treated to weather mild flurries. The stretch on this jacket is more than you think which makes it versatile for any sport. I use this climbing outdoors during the spring and fall. I use it as a layering piece in the winter. Best all around jacket!

I brought this jacket with me on an overnight trip to Antelope Island in the late fall and it got COLD. That being said, this jacket kept me warm during the day and early evening. Once the sun completely set it was about 20 degrees out so I dipped into my warm sleeping bag inside the tent. I love how comfortable this jacket is. It's super breathable and soft and fits well. It's the perfect mid layer when it gets cold, or a solid outer layer for casual adventuring around. It definitely protects from the wind which is awesome AND it has the highly coveted large pockets that actually fit more than a phone!

Love my navy/blush jacket and have worn a lot since purchasing. Great quality of materials and soft. I ordered a large so I could layer and also I do not like to wear tight jackets. I love it so much I ordered the black but unfortunately do not like the black as much- ordered in the same size and the wrist elastic is much tighter and bunched up on the black and also the black is not a true black in my opinion- the insulated portion almost looks grey/green. I am disappointed since I wanted another of this awesome jacket in black to be worn more frequently but will stick with my navy coat. Will be returning the black and just enjoying my navy/blush.

The fit is very nice and flattering. I like that the sleeve are long enough where the thumb holes feel comfortable and don't feel like they're pulling or are uncomfortable. The jacket had just enough length in the back for a little coverage when wearing leggings. I really enjoyed the stretch in the fabric. I've worn the jacket trail running and fly fishing quite a few times and appreciate how it allows a full range of motion and also how warm it kept me during those early morning runs.

I took this jacket with me on a recent trip to the desert for a weekend climbing trip and it was the perfect layer - breathable during the warm days and fits nicely under my puffy at night. The only thing I didn't love about this jacket was that the sleeves fit a bit snug around the forearms for me - They fit just fine rolled down, but rolling the sleeves up to my elbows is a bit of a battle. On the upside, a feature I particularly love about this jacket is how it fits while I climb. The side pockets are set a bit higher on the waist, which allows me to access them without loosening or taking off my harness and that's so handy.

I cannot express my love for this jacket to it's fullest, but I will do my best! First, for sizing, I got this in a small and it fits perfectly. It's a regular enough fit to pull over a long sleeve but athletic enough to still look feminine and stay close to your skin for warmth. The stretch venting on the sides allows this jacket to dump excess heat, which makes it the perfect layer for wearing underneath your shell while skiing. The inside chest pocket is perfect for storing your pass, card, or whatever you need. The four way stretch allows this jacket to move with you. There is an adjustable elastic band at the bottom hem, which comes in handy when climbing so that the harness doesn't make the jacket ride up, and for skiing for keeping out the powder if you're not one to use your powder skirt. The synthetic insulation is great because it doesn't wet-out like down tends to do. All around I am so happy to own this jacket and would recommend it to all ladies who need a good lightweight synthetic insulated jacket for all outdoor activities.

My gf demo'ed this jacket for a spring trip to the desert. She absolutely loved it's versatility for climbing and warmth in the mornings/evenings. The sizing seemed right for, although the sleeves were slightly long. She liked that it was more breathable than some of her other insulators.

I'm really into this jacket. I realize it was designed for touring, but I think it's a GREAT transitional jacket. Insulated on the front, but breathable in the back which makes spring hiking with a daypack really comfortable. I like the zippers as well, which work well and don't get stuck. I'm probably right between a small and a medium, but I went with the medium for a little more room. One other thing-- this is the PERFECT airplane jacket, because it is both warm and breathable. I find my temp fluctuates wildly on planes and this jacket has been just the ticket.

Nice all purpose synthetic midlayer. The stretch panels on the side are a really nice touch. The sizing runs a bit small so the stretch is helpful! I would compare this to an Arc'teryx Atom LT and note that the Backcountry version is sized at least a half size smaller.

Great Jacket

My wife loves this jacket and wears it all the time. In fact, she is wearing it right now... She enjoys wearing it as a baselayer while skiing or as her main jacket while out and about.

I love this jacket because of its versatility. It makes a great jacket when it's cool and you want to cut the chill, it's breathable enough to hike in, and it looks nice to just wear around town or walking my dog. I've worn it a couple days a week and haven't had any pilling or snags so far and I've had it for months. The arms are a little long on me but it's perfect to use the thumb holes. I hate when the thumb holes are too tight and this jacket doesn't have that problem for me. I got a small and am glad I did. I'm a small the majority of the time and while this isn't form-fitting, it gives me enough room to lightly layer underneath without feeling constricted. Great all around jacket!

When I pulled this jacket out of the bag it came in, I thought to myself "no way is this going to do anything more than a light sweater." It seems so thin and insubstantial. I put it on and it was so comfortable I didn't want to take it off. "At least there's that," I thought. But, I've been wearing it outside as my daily jacket, and it's been absolutely fine on small walks even in 20°F weather. If I were hanging out outside without moving a lot, I'd put on an outer shell, and similarly in any outing under 15°F. Your results may vary but give this a chance. I wear this everywhere--horseback riding, skiing, hiking, and my commute. I wear it so much I'm afraid I'll wear it out, but it's shown no signs of wear-and-tear despite feeling so delicate. I kind of want 2 of them just so I can feel OK about getting horse slobber on one of them. I really can't overstate how comfy this jacket is. It also, for those that care, happens to look great. My only gripe is that the men's jackets come in a nice goes-with-everything gray color that I would have liked. Super sick of men and women's gear coming in different colors, with the men's colors being way more awesome, but hey at least it's not pink.

I've been wearing this as a skiing midlayer, hiking in the desert, and around my house when it's cold. It's really comfortable with the fleece stretch panels on the back, and is very warm (I'm freezing from October - March). I ended up trying both XS and S and went with the S as it had a little more room for layers underneath. I feel like I"m inbetween the two sizes.

Seriously digging Backcountry brand gear! This jacket does it all. As a mid layer at the resort, a warm layer for touring, or a cozy layer to wear out on the down on the daily. This jacket was a great upgrade from my thin down sweater that I used to backcountry ski with, and more reliable. I will buy Backcountry brand gear in the future!

With lightweight, breathable insulation at the chest and arms, but not at the back or underarms, this is a perfect midlayer for skiing or solo jacket for dawn patrols when it's cold enough that you don't need to strip to your baselayer. I particularly like the lack of insulation at the back, because beneath your pack you don't need or want a lot of heat or material. This jacket actually reminds me of the Atom LT. The thumbholes weren't my favorite thing, as it feels like you're pressured into wearing the sleeves by design, but if you really want you can push the sleeves up and it's not too bulky.

I do love this jacket. It's a great midlayer - comfortable, stretchy where it needs to be, breathable yet extremely warm. I've used it out hiking on trails and skiing. Unfortunately I've noticed the front left chest panel of fabric is already starting to pill which is extremely disappointing as I've only had the jacket for about a month. I feel like that is unacceptable especially at this price.

Got this jacket for my mom. She loves the fit, long enough sleeves, close fit, but stretchy and comfortable mid layer. Wore it cross country skiing in Yellowstone and was very comfortable. The hood is warm and cozy when needed, but doesn't get in the way of peripheral vision.
