    Spring has sprung.

    When snow recedes above the tree line and spring flowers bloom, replace your winter jacket with the Outdoor Research Men's Ferrosi Hooded Jacket. This water-resistant jacket sheds light spring showers and it blocks cool alpine breezes when you hike for late-season turns. The nylon and spandex softshell fabric breathes well when you're working up a sweat, and it allows for maximum mobility with its movement-mirroring stretch. Tough stretch Cordura on the shoulders and arms stands up to brushes with rock faces and ski edges. In addition, DWR-coated zippers block outside moisture from seeping into vulnerable zipper seams, and the zipper is offset at the collar to prevent chafing.

    • The perfect jacket for transitioning from winter to spring
    • Water-resistant stretch fabric protects and moves with you
    • Regular fit offers room for a light layer underneath
    • Stretchy hem, cuffs, and adjustable hood add protection
    • Multiple pockets have space for smaller essentials
    • Item #ODR00JU

    No one should willingly put themselves in danger, let alone a life threatening situation, but a great excuse to do so is to save others. I was put in that situation while on a rafting trip recently, and had to leave the comfort of the raft for a kayak, to relieve a frozen elder on our trip. I swam a few rapids, an unpleasant experience when you didn't sign up for it, but this jacket performed sooooo well when I wasn't in a capsized kayak or in the drink. Water beaded up on the outside, even when it was saturated. It dried up quick when I back on land and kept the wind chill down.



    I owe OR big time for making such a solid jacket. Get one, and don't swim rapids!

    I got the Ferrosi this fall with the intention of using it as a ski touring layer, but am very impressed so far with its performance as a cool weather cycling layer. I wore it over a base layer and under a raincoat on a chilly 35 degree morning, and by the time I got to the top of the first climb (a seven mile climb) I was very surprised that I wasn't feeling too sweaty. I unziped the raincoat on the top to find that the base layer and ferrosi had transported all of my moisture away from my body until it was stopped by the raincoat. The outside of the ferrosi was getting wet, but the inside was wicking unbelievably well. I have never had a jacket like this that was able to move moisture like that. The downfall of the ferrosi is wind resistance. For fast, chilly descents on my bike the ferrosi did not offer as much protection from wind as some other jackets I have used. This is not a downfall, more of a trade-off between breathability and weather resistance. This thing breathes like a baselayer and sheds a light rain and breeze well. For skiing I expect it will be perfect because I move much slower in the skin track than on my bike, and on the way down I will be putting on an insulating layer underneath or a shell over top. So on the spectrum of breathability and weather protection, this jacket falls squarely on the breathable side, which for me is perfect as I intend to use it for high output activities. The other beautiful thing about this jacket is how small it packs down, not that you'll ever need to put it i your pack. I can't wait to use it this winter!

    Great spring skiing jacket!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I got my Ferrosi at the end of the ski season here in UT last year, and really like it! It blocks out the wind well, and also the stretch is awesome for aerobic exercises! I think the fit is also well done, plus its a versatile piece that can work for a wide range of outdoor activities! Well done OR!

    Mind the gap

    The Outdoor Research Ferrosi jacket fills the gap between hard shell and fleece wonderfully. While other softshells may be a touch more breathable and others more weather resistant, this jacket strikes a fantastic real-world balance packed into a super lightweight piece. If you want excellent breathability coupled with some protection from snow and moisture, this jacket is an excellent addition to your kit.

    Whatever your forte, the OR Ferrosi can handle it.



    Very wind and weather resistant. Mild snow and spindrift is of no concern during touring or mountaineering. It's abrasion resistant so you can climb in it, no worries.



    The Ferrosi breaths like a champ, making it equally happy during high exertion winter activities with a light fleece, and as fall/spring standalone active piece.



    Packs down small into it's own pocket with a harness clip, and weighs basically nothing. Very stretchy, low profile, good fit and cut so you can layer a fleece under, or easily throw a puffy over if you need to warm up.



    DWR can take a beating without wetting out in Utah snow, but PNW heavy rain will devour you in under 10 minutes.



    Biggest flaws are the hood, which needs more volume for a helmet, and hand pockets are low for access while wearing a pack. Otherwise, this really is a do it all utility softshell with enough general purpose for nearly any occasion you can think of.

    The Do It All Softshell.

    Sweet light softshell.

      Nice light softshell. Pretty windproof. Water resistant, but a drizzle is going to soak through it in 15 minutes if the jacket isn't clean. Breathes well. Had no problem wearing it into the 70s.

      Only thing I don't like is the fit is a bit boxy. Not much of a taper, which leads to fabric bunching near the waist under a pack.

      Inconsistent Sizing

      • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
      • Fit: Runs large
      • Size Bought: Medium
      • Height: 5'10"
      • Weight: 175lbs

      40" chest, 32" waist

      I tried a blue medium on at the local REI and liked it, but they didn't have my go-to red so I ordered from here per usual. Unfortunately the one that came was way too big; almost like a mislabeled large. I figured it was a mistake, so I ordered another along with a medium Summit Ferrosi. The second regular Ferrosi was better, but I preferred the Summit fit, so I ended up keeping that.

      I think if the regular Ferrosi was a trim fit, I would have kept it because I loved the fabric, simple cuffs, and under-helmet hood. I've had good luck with OR in the past, so hopefully the sizing issue was a one-off.

      This is my go to jacket for aerobic alpine activities in the summer or shoulder seasons. In the mountains you never know how windy it's going to be, if it's going to rain a little, or if it's going to be hot and you want something that wicks and breathes.

      This jacket is perfect for that ambiguity.

      It is a slightly rough on the skin but I would rather that than have something flimsy. This jacket hasn't let me down.

      Love it!

      Just used it up at Snowbird for some sunny spring skiing. Breathes really well, comfortable, and durable. I was sliding all over on the slush and there are no signs of wear on the jacket.

      So flexible

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size

      Love this jacket. Adapts to any activity. So far, I have used this jacket resort skiing, hiking, snowshoeing, & backcountry skiing. It does well all the time. It is stretchy and moderately wind repellent (enough to keep you comfortable while moving). It breathes great which is my favorite feature. It doesn't repel rain well, but it is not designed to. It also dries fast.
      Best of all, it is comfortable to wear.
      I wish the hand pockets were a little higher for better fit with a pack.

      Perfect Spring Active layer

      Picked this up several weeks ago and could not be happier with it. Super lightweight, form fitting and stretches with your arms. Hiked thru a pretty steady spring rain,and the breath ability/water resistance was perfect.

      Kept out the gale force winds

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Large
      • Height: 5'9"
      • Weight: 210lbs

      I put the Ferrosi to the test on a hike above Salt Lake City with gale force winds. We were being pelted by rocks and dirt wipped up by the wind and nearly blown off the trail. The Ferrosi kept it all out and has also worked well in light rain. The stretch in the material makes for a nice fit, does not restrict movement in any way and I'd highly recommend this as a packable light jacket.



      At my size, 5'9, 210 and broader shoulders I'd go with an XL instead of the Large that I have. It fits but I'd like more room for layers beneath.

      This jacket caught my eye the first time I saw it, and stayed in my mind ever-since than, until I finally decided to purchase it. Wearing it for only a few days this jacket quickly became a favorite in my closet. This jacket has more uses than I have discovered; being a great stand along jacket for spring and fall weather, but also great as a layering piece for the colder winter months. The material on it is able to keep you warm, but also breathe exceptionally well, with this being one of the few jackets I do not over-heat in. The fabric itself is cool and supple to the touch, feeling amazing directly against the skin and it quite durable as well. One of the coolest features about this jacket is the stretch in the material itself, allowing the jacket to move with your entire range of motion and never clumping up on you. This has the integrated thumb-holes in the wrist and they are reinforced and some of the most comfortable thumb holes I have used. Over-all this is a jacket I would recommend to anyone looking for a versatile jacket that can be used in a wide range of temperatures and climates.

      Cheap(ish) and breathable jacket

      • Height: 5'10"

      It weighs very little (I guess that's subjective), which means I carry one everywhere even if it stays in the pack the whole trip.
      It doesn't restrict arm movement and it's very breathable; great combination if you are looking for a jacket for climbing.
      I've used it during ice climbing and I didn't feel water soaking through midlayer, so I know it's water resistance.
      It's filed under one of the best purchases for under $100.
      Great bang for buck

      All around winner. Must have jacket!

      I bought this jacket when i read about it on review sites. It kept turning up in everyones top softshell jackets, top backpacking jackets, hiking, you name it. People cant say enough about it.

      I had to grab one. That is when my love for all things Outdoor Research occurred.

      The Ferrosi jacket is by far the best all around lightweight jacket in existence. The feel is comfortable. It carries great warmth for its weight. I wore it while bearing a very windy low to mid 20s MN day in early march waiting outside for an event for over 90 mins. While i was cold i was not freezing. That was sitting in one spot. I know moving around had I been hiking would have kept me nice and toasty. So sitting immobile for such a period of time in those temperatures with no gloves really spoke volumes to me.

      The wind will break through somewhat but not once do you get a shivering chill. There is a nice coolness factor when you turn it up and go hard while wearing it that really is great at regulating body heat.

      It also offers great water resistance. Rain beads off nicely and has a great fitted hood that fits your head without adjusting.

      It packs down nice and small so its a backpacking dream.

      For aesthetics, they offer a lot of two tone and solid colours for people. I got the mushroom and brown jacket and love it. It has built in thumb loops on the new 2017 model so it makes slipping it through a thicker jacket a breeze. The fit is nice and gives room for layering while maintaing a great athletic cut. I am 5'9 180 lbs. Large is perfect.

      This jacket is a must. BUY IT. You will have no regrets. It started my love for all things Outdoor Research. My love for this company is now a blazing bonfire of total fandom.

      Comfortable

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: XL
      • Height: 6'0"
      • Weight: 205lbs

      I honestly don't know what I'll use this for yet, but I can tell you, it's comfortable. It's light, stretchy, and soft, cuts some wind, but not all of it, moves well with you. Love the two-tone brown color. Probably not super water resistant, but for active days I don't think you'll overheat in it. I'm 6ft 205lbs and the XL fits me with just a little room to spare. I'm a tweener with XL and L's, but the XL is right for this one with me.

      Go to jacket for cascades

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Large
      • Height: 5'10"
      • Weight: 200lbs

      This jacket has nothing but good reviews but while I was here I figured I would offer up my 2 cents. I do agree with what everyone else has said. This is my go to jacket anytime I am going to be active and still need a jacket. The jacket offers good wind protection and is water resistant. It sheds powder very well. But the real place this jacket excels is in its breath-ability. This jacket is perfect for the climbing the cascades in the spring through fall when paired up with an appropriate base layer and shirt. It fits well and not overly bulky so you can put on layers over it if you need something waterproof or a belay Jacket. With the layers under it, I am good down to about 30 degrees and steady 10 to 15 mph wind...if I am moving.

      Unanswered Question

      Can anyone compare this to the Marmot ROM jacket? I'm mostly interested in how breathable/windproof the Ferrosi is.
