Why We Like The Outdoor Research Aspire II Plus Rain Jacket

Outdoor Research's number 1 rain jacket for women, the Aspire II Plus can handle almost everything with its excellent breathability and ventilation. Made with lightweight and packable GORE-TEX Pac Lite, this shell is durably waterproof and windproof—and extremely breathable—to keep us as comfortable as possible in wet weather. We also like the TorsoFlo vents, which unzip all the way from the hem to our biceps to dump excess heat and moisture. No wonder so many women pick it to be their casual rain jacket, wear it on soggy hikes and backpacking trips, or simply stow it in their pack as an emergency shell.

Awesome Coat!

This coat is wonderfully versatile! Very easy to layer with other pieces and also takes up little to no space in a suitcase. Highly recommend.

Fits well in the body, but I don't care for the fit of the h

I haven't had a chance to test this in severe rain, so I don't know how fully waterproof it really is. The fit is nice in the body - slim, but fits over layers. However, I really don't like how the hood fits. I've cinched it down, but the visor is too floppy and impedes vision.

Overall Great Product

Originally, I had the first Aspire jacket and had that for around 6 years. It held up great and was amazing quality. I did re-waterproof it once after 5 years of use and it turned it back to brand new. However, one of the zippers fell off on the side zips and I was unable to fix it. Therefore, it was unusable. I was able to utilize the warranty and received a new Aspire jacket. Seems to be good quality as well. However, I did notice that some of the small features that were on my original Aspire are no longer there. Which is a small disappointment as I believe those small features added to the overall appearance and quality. Regardless, I am still very happy with my purchase and would recommend this jacket!

Not waterproof

I was soaked through. Very nice jacket but will not wear it hiking in wet weather.

Like wearing a cotton T-shirt in the rain I was completely soaked through and through five minutes in the rain. Very disappointing.

Side zips are a GAME CHANGER

The best part of the jacket are the side zips, you can layer the puffiest down jacket you've got and the side zips give you adjustable room to layer as desired. Not only that, you can finally fasten that backpack hip belt directly around your waist without the cell phone in your jacket front pocket getting in your way. The same goes for car seatbelts! Best ever feature in a jacket, hands down.

Great Backcountry Jacket

Love this for the Backcountry... packs down, sheds snow and rain, love the color and works even on warm wet days to shed heat with the side zippers.

Love the material

Love this.. I could stand out in a downpoor and stay dry with this... Its also great if it's a bit warm and rainy because the sides zip down... So it's breathable..
