    Details

    For alpinists and summit-lovers.

    Rugged alpine ascents call for the equally rugged Men's Ferrosi Summit Hooded Softshell Jacket by Outdoor Research. OR constructed this softshell out of a highly abrasion-resistant Cordura with stretchy spandex woven throughout. There are stretchier panels at the underarms and hood to enhance mobility for hiking and climbing. This softshell sheds light rainfall to keep you dry in the alpine's ever-changing weather.

    The Ferrosi Summit also features Outdoor Research's helmet-compatible Halo Hood with adjustments, cord locks, and a wire brim that stays out of sight while belaying. There are hook-and-loop adjustments at each cuff, and the zippered hand pockets are always accessible, even with a harness or backpack on.

    • Dynamic Reach underarm panels

    So Far; So Good (Love the Color)

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: XL
    • Height: 6'1"
    • Weight: 190lbs

    I chose this jacket after watching reviews of the item on YT.
    So far; so good. I love the color (Fatigue) and I ordered an XL (I’m 6’1” and 190 lbs). A Large would have probably fit better, but I plan on using a fleece under this jacket so the XL will serve its purpose.

    My BIGGEST grievance with this garment is that it is stamped “Made in China” on the tag. I prefer American USA made goods.

    Plan to wear / use it heavily this Fall.

    Very pleased

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: medium
    • Height: 5'7"
    • Weight: 135lbs

    Got this a month or so ago, and have worn it for several backcountry skiing jaunts. Temps for these has been as low as around zero F, and up to maybe low to mid 20's.
    Jacket is very well designed and crafted. I have a definite preference for the adjustable velcro cuffs rather than plain elasticized, and find the hood functions and fits really well. Jacket is light, and the fabric has a pretty nice hand and comfortable stretch.
    Temp regulation has been good; I can feel a cold wind a bit, but still remain comfortable; layering for me has been a light base layer and a "Monkey Man" fleece midlayer - the fleece being on the thicker side. I have gotten some condensation on the inside of the shell, but that was largely due to my overheating a bit with the fleece, I think. No experience yet with water repellency, but I'm confident it'll be fine for light warm weather rains.
    Sizing is probably true to size for a tailored fit, but one thing I've found is that the sleeves are cut a bit trim right to the armpits, so I'd suggest keeping your base/mid layers trim fit too. I ordered a medium to allow for my winter layers, and it's worked out well. Sleeves are plenty long enough, and the overall length is great.
    Drawcords are well laid out; they're on the smaller side so a little delicate to use with gloves on, at least 'till you get the hang of 'em.
    Overall, exactly what I was hoping for.

    This softshell jacket is everything i was looking for in a backcountry touring softshell. Here in UT we have some dry snow so a GTX shell is not really necessary. I find that I run hot. Seriously, i sweat a lot! This jacket really helps me regulate my temp while on the skin track. Less sweat + less evaporation = warmer.

    Excellent Active Shell

    40" chest, 32" waist

    I bought this primarily as a cycling layer, but have used it casually a number of times as well. I bought this and the regular ferrosi, but ended up keeping this for a few reasons: trimmer fit, more durable fabric, and better chest pockets.

    The fit is trim but not tight, and has enough room for an R1 or other similar fleeces. If you want to layer something heavier like a down puffy, sizing up might be smart. The fabric blocks a reasonable amount of wind, but nothing compared to a hardshell or windstopper. I wanted something super breathable because I do run hot, and I can always add another layer. It's been in the 30's and my go-to is this plus a 200wt wool shirt for the ride into work. My favorite part is the double chest pockets with the mesh backing. They're super helpful for venting when it warms up in the afternoon and really were the feature that made me keep this instead of the regular ferrosi.

    Given the chance, I'd change two things: the hood and cuffs. I prefer an under-helmet hood for jackets like these because they don't catch nearly as much wind when they're down. I would also like simple non-velco cuffs like the regular version. Both those are minor details, so still an awesome jacket.

    Very nice jacket

    Perfect fabric and quality. It is very well build.
    @Leta Kalfas. This model has high collar what is really great. But it is hard to put it in stand up position (fabric is too soft). It drops. I feel that wind go through my neck especially at back side. Hope you will find a way to improve that.

    Great soft-shell for the uphill and down!

    I got the Large in this softshell and it has been amazing! Water-proof as well, which is a plus. I use this for my soft shell on all my uphill travel and spring downhill jacket. Used it on all my dawn patrol skinning this season, from weather ranging from 10 degrees with wind to 40 degree down hill riding as seen in the picture. The ferrosi breathes really well, that is why I continue to use it on all my backcountry tours. Let me know if I can help get you geared up for your needs.

    Breathable Goodness

    I have struggled with what to wear while touring for years but am happy to say that this jacket has ended all my problems!

    My body is incredibly terrible at thermoregulation. If I am not exerting myself I am usually freezing my butt off and as soon as I start doing any physical activity I am usually down to my base layers and sweating like a pig. On sunny day tours this isn't an issue as I just take my layers off. But if its a storm day I can't do this because I will get wet, which is both uncomfortable and a bit dangerous. All other shells I have used while touring in stormy, even my lightweight goretex rain shell, has left me a steamy sweaty mess on the up.

    The first storm day IN MY LIFE where I have been able to tour up with my shell on and be comfortable was with this jacket. This jacket is immensely breathable but still cuts out the wind and keeps you dry. I am so impressed with this jacket good work OR!

    My one caveat to this is that I tour in the Wasatch where it is cold and usually the snow is dry. If you live in the PNW you might need a little more than a softshell to keep you dry!

    I got a size large so that I could layer underneath

    Great alpine shell

      I've used this a half dozen times so far for snow shoeing in alpine conditions (15 - 40 degrees) and skiing in moderate conditions (sunny + 45ish). I've been very pleased with its ability to shed wind, but provide breathability while exerting. It's shed snow perfectly well and kept me dry. The size seems to be just right, a M gives me room for a right sized mid layer. Everyone is different, but for me I'd probably switch over to my winter hard shell next time if its in the teens, that seems about the point @ which I could feel cold coming through the shell. The hood is great. I love the construction, I think this is a great complement to a burly hard shell in any winter enthusiasts closet.

      Probably good for climbing

      I'm not entirely sure as I am not a climber. But I did hop a 10ft chainlink fence while being chased by a couple menacing Yorkies the other day and the stretch in the fabric really came in handy. This jacket looks and feels great from a fit perspective, and you can even add a light midlayer underneath without looking like the little brother from A Christmas Story. Wind proofing is super solid. As for water resistance I took it for a few laps around the park during a heavy rain storm a couple weeks back and it kept my skin dry for 30 minutes, which I thought was really good considering how hard it was coming down. Attached a pic from the beading when I first got out. The Frodo hood keeps your head and face nice and dry, too. Also the nip zips are a lot of fun if you don't wear a shirt underneath, since the pocket lining is see-through mesh. My only regret is that I have but five stars to give.

      This Jacket has kept me warm when I thought it was not thick enough. Kept me completely dry and cool on long hikes. Its stretchiness gives you complete range of motion without any restrictions. OR is a great company and has an amazing warranty program. My zipper got caught on something and pulled off track. I filled out the warranty page on the site (took two minutes) and within hours I had a new one coming in the mail. two days later I was surprised to see my new jacket at my door and still hadn't sent the old one back. It was more than a pleasure and convenience to make the swap. I have not seen a more efficient warranty department with such great customer service. This service definitely makes me want to buy nothing but OR gear.

      Love the Jacket!
