    Details

    For the ascent.

    Unlike most midlayers, the Outdoor Research Men's Ascendent Hooded Jacket is an insulated layer that's actually designed for the ascent. It has that light touch of warmth that backcountry skiers and alpine climbers look for when they're moving fast on the uphill. Polartec Alpha insulation keeps warm while allowing total air permeability, which means the jacket begins to breathe the moment you put it on (unlike most insulators that only breathe after you started sweating). The result is a remarkable difference when you're breathing hard on the ascent.

    • Synthetic insulator warms you on climbs and ski tours
    • Polartec Alpha insulation assures active air permeability
    • Pertex Microlight shell is ultralight, windproof, and breathable
    • Adjustable hood and hem stay secure in windy weather
    • Item #ODR00N8

    Excellent Breathability

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    This jacket fills a recently created "active insulation" gap in my wardrobe. After spending time on trail shedding other synthetic jacket layers (Atom LT for example), I wanted something I could put on and leave on during my aerobic pursuits. I've used this jacket a couple times on my bike and was impressed with how well it breathes. At a standstill it continues to insulate and allow excess heat to dissipate. I'm very excited to see how this jacket will perform through the colder months.

    The sizing on this jacket is a very performance fit. At 6'00" and 160lbs I can fit a close-to-skin baselayer under a size Small. If you have wider shoulders or a broad chest, the sizing might feel tight.
