Not what I thought this was... it *just* blocks wind & rain

For a product that is called a "hoodie" and the product description says it's a 2 out of 4 on "warmth" it literally does nothing to keep you warm other than block some wind and keep you dry. The only reason I didn't send it back was because it is otherwise *perfect* for my needs! It does an amazing job keeping me dry, I went for a 20 minute walk in a decent drizzle and not a drop was even on the hoodie when I got home. The hood actually fits me fairly well (most of the hoodies I have tried in XL are designed for Big Bird I guess, I put the hood up and the front flops down so far it touches my chin!), it's sized pretty well, the pockets are EXACTLY what I was looking for, the stretch is nice, it looks good, it has a nice, snug fit but not too snug around the waist... it truly is perfect in every way other than have zero insulation at all. The one change I would make, is that there is a drawcord in the waist to cinch it up, and the loop is on the right side. This should be moved to the left side, so that it does not interfere with right-handed people accessing EDC kit on their waist or in their pockets. I was looking for something that would actually keep me warm, be snugly, be my "one piece of outerwear" unless I needed a real jacket. Something I could wear from 25 or so through 50, like I do with a true cotton hoodie, just with better pockets and water resistance. Unfortunately, this is just not that piece of gear, unless I wear a sweatshirt underneath it. If OR makes something exactly like this, but with insulation (I think the Vigor fleece may be it), I'll gladly buy it. I'm keeping this, because honestly it does a great job for what it does, and I can throw it in the car without taking much room as a "just in case". But not having the insulation means I am back on the hunt for that nice, comfy thing to throw over anything casual and do everthing from go for a walk to lounge around the house on a chilly day.

Love the Ferrosi Hoodie

It is a great shell for thr PNW. Works well most of the year with layering. Handles light precipitation well. I accidentally left my first one at a restaurant so I ordered another to replace it and now have 2.

I use this daily to protect my shirts from me

Durable, stretchy and comfortable after broken in. The weather changes often and dramatically here on Cheat Mountain in West Virginia and this is great for keeping more warmth than just a shirt/base but breathing more than a hard shell.

Great Hoodie

Does a great job at blocking the wind, and I haven't had any issues with rain getting through yet (long term drizzle or a few minutes in heavy rain). I was worried it'd be super loud and crinkly like the last windbreaker I owned back in the 90's, but they've come a long way since then. It's so light that I hardly notice I'm wearing it, and it's roomy enough it doesn't restrict movement at all. I'm 5'8 and 190 and went with a large; there's room for layers underneath but it's not too baggy without them. With moderate activity and the mega mix fleece, it's been good down to freezing temperatures. It's pretty much replaced most of my other jackets unless the weather is terrible.

Perfect Weight for Spring/Fall Hikes

Love this jacket. It solves the "do I or do I not need a jacket today?" question perfectly. Stays cool during long runs/hikes and keeps the wind and sun off you. Couldn't be happier

Still nice, but...

Long term Ferrosi user. This is my go-to for SE Appalachian winters, anything below 50 degrees or so, backpacking and kayaking. It's a magic shirt. The current jacket has sleeves that can be pulled up, and I like the pull cord for the hem. But the shoulders now have a seam, and it's about an inch and a half too short on both shoulders (the wingspan is too short). The jacket pulls tight, which on its own isn't so bad but any insulation underneath gets crushed. Bc it's stretched it allows more rain in too. If you're listening OR bring back the old, seamless shoulders.

Perfect lightweight jacket

I'm 5'11, 160lbs and got the size large. It's a little roomier than expected but still a great athletic fit. Fabric is tough, wind resistant, and water repellent while also being breathable. I've used this as a pack jacket for biking, climbing, or hiking. It's been perfect for being compact and having a wide range of use.

Used to be better

I have worn the Ferrosi jacket casually and for hiking for a long time. It is a decent light softshell that is not overly complex. I do wish the thumb holes would come back, as that was a useful feature. Disappointed that they were removed.
