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.

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