    Sheds spring showers, blocks cool breezes.

    Spring is in the air, so it's time to put away the bulky winter jacket and pull out the Outdoor Research Men's Ferrosi Jacket. This water-resistant jacket sheds light spring showers, and it blocks cool alpine breezes when you hike for late-season turns. The nylon/spandex softshell fabric breathes exceptionally well when you're working up a sweat, and it allows for maximum mobility with its movement-mirroring stretch. In addition, DWR coated zippers block outside moisture from seeping into vulnerable zipper seams.

    • Switch out your winter jacket for this one when it warms up
    • Water-and wind-resistant stretchy fabric fights off the elements
    • Regular fit moves as you do and has room for a tee underneath
    • Adjustable hem and stretchy cuffs add weather protection
    • Multiple pockets stash sunnies, phone, wallet, and keys
    • Item #ODR00JV

    Outdoor Research Ferrosi Jacket

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit: True to size

    I got this as a gift for my brother in Florida. It's nice and lightweight piece that will block some wind. He uses it on the golf course a lot.

    Great lightweight softshell

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I bought this to replace an old Patagonia Super Guide jacket, a piece I use for casual town wear as well as for layering in cold weather. The Ferrosi jacket is significantly lighter and softer, has essentially the same feature set, and costs less than the old Patagonia jacket. I've now used the Ferrosi for a month that included a 3 week trip to the UK. There I wore the jacket for both in town use and for days of hiking in the Scottish Highlands. Some impressions.

    Fit. I'm 6', 200 lb, 44" chest, long arms. The size L Ferrosi fits well as long as I don't layer heavily underneath. The cut has a bit less taper than, say, Arc'teryx, where I have to go XL to get a fit. The Ferrosi body length is good (just above my crotch, and the arms are plenty long. Nice.

    Features. Two hand warmer pockets and a chest pocket. No interior pockets. Bottom hem drawcord. That's about it. Oh, cuff ends have thumb loops; I thought this would be a useless feature, but the fabric is so soft that they actually work.

    Fabric. The Ferrosi fabric is a single-weave stretchwoven, relatively smooth outside, kind of nubby inside. Softer and lighter than double-weave stretchwovens I've worn. Very comfortable, fast drying, comfortable across a range of temperatures, and about as wind-resistant as heavier soft shells I've worn.

    Performance. I wore this with a T-shirt beneath for 60s - 70s (F) days jetting around London - comfortable, didn't overheat. I wore it standing on a rainy train stop in Highland Scotland, and for walking the hills there - good wind resistance, shed rain, dried easily when given a chance. And everything in between. A hard-working jacket that serves as semi-stylish and high-performance outerwear, or as a layering piece when conditions overwhelm.

    Dennis - this is a fantastic review. Excellent detail - thank you! I am wearing my women's Ferrosi Hoody today in Salt Lake City... about 55 degrees. down jacket would be too much. Ferrosi fabric is perfect.

    Thank you again!

    Now I know why everyone loves it

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large
    • Height: 5'9"
    • Weight: 175lbs

    I had a hard time understanding why everyone gushed about this lightweight jacket....until I bought one. Outdoor Research hit a homerun with this one. It's light but does a good job of blocking enough wind. But, at the same time it's breathable. It's just kind of this weird, in-between piece that's hard to describe in terms of versatility until you wear it. VERY comfortable as well! With a t-shirt underneath you're good on cool, sunny days above 50 degrees, and with a base layer(s) you could take this down to 30 or so. Not a hard shell, so it can't do it all, but one of those pieces that you'll never want to be without.

    Sizing: One of the reasons I love OR (this piece and all my others) is their sizing is spot-on. I'm 5'9", 175# (32" waist and 42" suit coat) and with other brands I usually swim in a large, or a medium looks like I'm trying way to hard. Not so with OR- their Large fits nicely, like it was tailored for me. It's trim without being restrictive. I've found this to be true with the Ferrosi as well as the Transfer jacket and hoody.

    Great active jacket

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large
    • Height: 5'11"
    • Weight: 200lbs

    This is a great lightweight softshell. It's fairly wind and water resistant, breathable, and the stretchy fabric moves with you, so it's pretty comfortable. I use it mostly for hiking and cycling and it works very well for both.

    Possibly the best feature is how light it is. For a softshell it weighs next to nothing and packs down pretty well for easy stowage when not needed. If I had to give a gripe about this jacket I would wish it were a tad more weatherproof.

    Overall, a great jacket for active pursuits.

    Versatile Breathable Jacket

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs small

    I run hot and have trouble finding a windbreaker that doesn't roast me. Have used this one as an outside layer in a variety of temps from mid teens to 50's, hiking and snowshoeing. Very breathable, and works well with layers. No big problems with moisutre management during strenuous activity. Stretchy fabric enables excellent freedom of movement. Has a good degree of wind block protection too up about 15 mph. Packs nicely into its own Pocket. Only ding is the sizing. I usually get XL in OR gear. Had to upsize to XXL on this one.

    Love this Jacket!

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

    I am big fan of this Jacket. It's really lightweight and the fabric is flexible, but still strong. If you are looking for a heavier, tough soft shell, this probably isn't the one.

    The jacket fits me well. It's a slightly slender cut, but not fitted. I am 6'1 185 lbs and the large fits great. I can fit a mid weight Merino style quarter zip underneath it comfortably. It's well made and the stitching is strong. The edges around the zippers are welded and stiffer, so I have never had an issue with a zipper snagging. It comes with strong zipper pulls and the waist drawstring toggle is attached so you can tighten it down with one hand.

    Being fairly thin and flexible, the fabric sheds light rain ok, but by no means is this jacket meant to keep you dry in the rain. It's a great lightweight Jacket to pack along when hiking or to wear when drinking an IPA in the local watering hole. I am also a fan of the discreet logo that is not huge or in your face. OR does a good job with how they brand stuff. I am also probably bias since OR is a local Seattle company :)

    Had to add on thing to my earlier review. I actually bought another one of these because I love them so much. The latest version has some small updates to the previous version. There are now thumb holes at the end of the sleeves. They are done well and are not noticeable if you are not using them. They changed the chest pocket a bit by covering the zipper. The pictures on this listing show the newer version. Just when I though I couldn't love it more, they go and make a couple small, but very effective updates. I hate to admit it, but I now own the jacket in Black, Coyote, and Dusk.
