Alpine Hooded Down Jacket

Pursue far off alpine lakes in the Alpine Hooded Down jacket. It's loaded with durability, weather resistance, and warmth to keep you comfortable as you climb to new heights. Durable Pertex Quantum Pro on the sleeves and hood stand up to abrasions you'll encounter on your trip while the water resistant face fabric keeps the 800 fill down insulation dry because dry down is warm down. The baffles on the jacket are quilted to allow the down to provide warmth to the max by eliminating cold spots that often occur in quilted down jackets.

Protection from the environment and elements isn't the only thing the Alpine jacket provides. It's brimming with features you'll rely on in the high mountains. For example, reaching for high hand holds is easy with the Dynamic Reach under arm panels that offer you freedom of movement. When the wind really picks up, pull the hood up over your helmet to prevent your precious body heat from escaping. The hem and cuffs also aid in keeping the heat in with elastic material and a drawcord. Additionally, your pockets sit slightly higher than normal so you can still access them with a pack or harness on, and the whole jacket stuffs into its left hand pocket at the end of the trip for easy transport off the mountain.

  • Warm down jacket to take on high alpine adventures in comfort
  • 800-fill down is responsibly sourced and offers compressible warmth
  • Baffle construction eliminates cold spots for full body warmth
  • Durable fabric in the sleeves and hood withstand alpine abrasions
  • Dynamic Reach underarm panels offer mobility for high hand holds
  • Elastic drawcord hem and cuffs seal out the elements and trap heat
  • Pockets sit slightly higher to accommodate a pack or harness
  • Hood fits over helmets to prevent body heat from escaping

Got this just in time for a weekend-long backcountry avalanche course and was very glad to have it! The temps were 5-15 degree for most of the 3-day class with lots of standing around between skinning. This definitely kept me warm. I live in Montana and, being a fairly cold person, I often strayed away from backcountry skiing in weather below 20 degrees for fear of being too cold to enjoy it. I also have Raynaud's and I'm often fearful of frostbite. Previously, I was always scrambling at the top of the skin track to grab extra warm layers to throw on (I get cold in a hurry when I stop moving in cold weather). This jacket really helped alleviate my anxiety about cold weather activities. It was easy to pull out and throw right over the top of whatever I was skinning in. My old winter puffy was just too big and cumbersome to pack along and not as windproof. Finally, I have a jacket that packs small enough to stuff in my touring bag, is lightweight, sheds snow really well (it was dumping snow for most of the first 3 days I wore it), blocks wind reasonably well, and so far, has proven to be relatively tough (withstood skinning through thick pine trees, carrying a pack and carrying skiis on my shoulder). As for sizing...I'm 5'7", 145lbs with broad, muscular shoulders and relatively narrower hips. I usally wear a M in shirts (8-10) and S-M bottoms (sz 6). I often buy mens shirts for the upper body fit. I bought this in a sz M. This jacket fit true to size in the upper body (room for underlayer and mid-layer), however, if you have wide hips it might not work as great. It's longer in length, which is nice as it covers my butt, however, pretty snug around the hips/butt area. It has a two-way zipper that helps, and I keep it zipped all the way down when I'm standing or skiing, but when sitting on a ski lift or bending over digging in my pack I felt like I needed to unzip the bottom quite often. I feared if I didn't I might strain the bottom of the zipper too much and eventually cause it to tear. Also, if I wanted to fit more layers underneath, or just have a little extra room, I would have sized up to a sz L. The hood was roomy enough for my helmet and cinched down easily when not wearing a helmet. Lastly, I was between this jacket and a couple of others when I ordered it, and I chose this one mainly for the added durarbility of the reinforced shoulders/arms and for the extra pockets (hand and chest pockets outside, skin pockets inside). I'm very happy with my decision in that regard. The inside pockets keep my skins warm on the ski down and the chest and hand pockets are really convenient and worth it for me. Overall, great performance for a pretty good value. Would recommend it for backcountry skiing and winter camping. OR could probably do some fine tuning on the sizing of the hips though. Although, it is advertised as more of a climbing jacket, so maybe that's why the hips are narrow?

I like to wear this jacket in the low 30’s and below. The down baffles are nice and puffy. Hood can adjust to my really small head and light rain can be tolerated well. Length of jacket is perfect for cold windy weather or out in the elements for a long period of time....walking the dog! My only complaint and it’s a big one....Outdoor Research does not cover any sort of tear which in my case was unfortunate. I had bent over and brushed a tree branch, jacket tore a hole and voila all the down unloaded within that single baffle? Fabric appears strong and feels strong but clearly you need to be careful for such a spendy jacket. Do not believe their Warranty‼️

My girlfriend is the coldest human I've ever met. She can be cold on an 80-degree day. I say this because I want to understand my amazement when she tells me she is not only warm, but very warm, toasty warm in this jacket when it's freezing out. The 800 fill down offers amazing compression and astounding levels of warmth. The features on this jacket are plentiful and remarkable. The jacket only weighs a pound and can compress easily. The slightly higher pockets are hardly noticeable when out walking the dog or around town, but when we have backpacks on, those pockets are still fully accessible. She hasn't taken the jacket skiing yet, so the oversized/helmet-compatible hood isn't her favorite feature. She's not bothered by having to adjust the hood though as the cinch makes it easy. It's a tremendous piece for cold days whether you're being active or not!

It actually feels like wearing a sleeping bag! This jacket is the warmest and most comfortable jacket I have ever worn! It is so puffy, but compresses down and fits into the pocket of the jacket. I have trouble finding jackets that are long enough for my arms and torso, but this jacket is plenty long. It covers my bottom which is such a nice feature and keeps me so warm. This jacket is perfect for belaying on cold crag days and the pockets are slightly higher so you can still access them with a harness. I recommend this jacket to anyone and everyone and just bought one for my friend and he loves it just as much. 10/10! OR nailed it!

This jacket is amazingly warm, comfortable, and thoughtful in design. Some aspects that I love: large hood for helmets, all the deep and big pockets (2 on the outside, a side pocket, and inner mesh pockets), it is long enough to cover my butt, the sleeves fit me almost perfectly in length, and it is so toasty. I have a small (5’2 and 120lbs) and it fit perfectly and there’s even some room to spare for light layers underneath. I haven’t tested this item on any winter adventure, but I have no doubt that this could keep me warm in freezing temperatures. Awesome jacket!

Great jacket! So warm!

Great jacket for having an extra layer while skiing. Use as a reserve puffy and always keeps me warm. Fits true to size.

This is a beautiful coat and I’ve no doubt that it would keep me very warm on my walks here in nys but the fit is off...or my shape is! It was snug around the belly...I do have a mod pouch tum....and the sleeves were about three inches too long. I’m 5 ft weight 148. It’s lightweight but very bulky tho I was not going for a slimming look but warmth. Blue was a beautiful color, disappointed I have to return. I also liked that it was a little long length. Hard to find a longer non fitted jacket these days. Returning was easy. Good customer service.

Susan, I am sorry this did not work for you. Have you tried our Transcendent Down Parka? How about our Emerelda Parka? Those may be a better bet for you - longer, nice shape. This one is designed as a belay jacket, not as a long walking parka. I hope you are able to try the ones I mentioned! and many thanks for your review - Leta OR Rep

Great belay jacket and puffy for skiing

I've been using this jacket for backcountry skiing and alpine climbing at 14,000' and below. Also took it to the West Buttress of Denali, where it was my second biggest puffy above 17,000'. Things I love about this jacket: 1) Fit. I am 5'8", 145 lbs, probably about 36" bust. Medium works well for me. Good length on the arms. Hood fits well over multiple other hoods or climbing helmet. The jacket is long and covers most of my bum, adding to the overall warmth. This is a big plus, especially while skiing. Because of it's length, if wearing under a harness, it doesn't creep out of harness. If wearing over harness, the ability to unzip from the bottom makes it easy to belay with and still keep your bum covered in the back. If I'm only wearing a base layer, it is a tad big, but not really. Wearing with other layers, I don't find it big. The sizing seems right for the jacket's intended purposes. 2) Pockets! Functional and just the right amount. Both the internal and external chest pockets are sizeable and will accommodate larger phones, GPS and compass, medium point and shoot cameras, etc. Big internal mesh pockets! Good for warming/drying gloves, quick storage of skins. Good hand pockets. 3) Simplicity. This jacket just does it's job. It has what it needs, it packs down well, and doesn't fool around with unnecessary features. Stoked!

Awesome review, Erica E. It was very helpful and full of specific details. Please know that the time you spend writing it is appreciated by those of us trying to make a decision.

This is the jacket women have been asking for. Good fitting for over top of all your layers whenever you need to stay warm and comfortable in colder temps! Good length to cover your butt as well.

Hey Sarah! Great to see you on the community! Thank you for the review here. Happy Trails! Leta OR rep

Two questions: 1) is the down in this jacket hydrophobic or DWR treated? 2)do you think this jacket is warm enough for PNW/Cascades winter camping? Thanks
