    Nice jacket.

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large

    I ordered this jacket in large, black. I tried it on one time, I am 6'0" 185 lbs with a 44" chest more or less athletically built. It fit well and that's mainly why I am posting this review for the sizing information. Unfortunately I must have missed that the black is really shiny and wet-looking, the picture looks more flat in color than shiny, at least on my computer. I am sending it back because I cannot live with the color. However it seems like a very well put together product. I also have the Transcendent jacket with hood and I love that jacket. Outdoor Research puts a zip pocket on the chest portion and I love having a pocket there for my cell phone, other manufacturers take note. As for their jackets in general I would love to see a zip off hood, maybe in the future? I realize the hood is meant to be worn over a helmet, but I want a hood that sits flat and can be stowed so it doesn't blow around so much when it's just hanging back there, and I want it to lay flat.

    Warm and light

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

    I have used this as my insulation layer for the past 2 winters in a combination of urban and wilderness environments. the 800-fill down makes it very warm and cozy. It packs down very small in a pack without effecting the loft when you thow it on again (yes people will want to touch it). A great cold weather belay layer with the ability to up zip to access belay loop. Fleece on the inside of the pockets is a nice comfort on frozen hands. It handles light rain, wind, snow surprisingly well for down, but i pair it with hard shell for anything serious. Due to the lightness of the jacket, the outer material is very thin and is more pron to ripping. So, if your looking for something you can be rough with, you'll want to find something that is not so light.

    Warm and light

    Does exactly what its meant to do!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: XL

    Great fit - perfect for me (6ft 5, 215lbs), good length sleeves, fits snug to the body but doesnt restrict movement, warm a sit should be. Hood acts like a scarf at the back of the neck for extra warmth. Overall - great!

    Another perfect jacket by OR

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium

    Size has always been tough for me to figure out with OR hoodies and jackets. I have an outer layer jacket that is a medium, fits great. But the large hoodie they make fit me better than the medium.
    I'm 5'11", 160 lbs. The medium was the perfect size. It's not tight on me at all. The arm length is just right. The jacket extends about 5" past my belt, which is perfect.

    It is very lightweight, and the fabric seems thin. I can't speak to the durability, but I don't intend on this being my outer layer when i'm walking through thick brush. That's what my outer layer OR jacket is for.

    Warmth in a simple package.

      Definitely more puff then your "normal" down puffy. Great for basecampin' around, belaying, and extreme sleeping. Must have for your sleep system if using a UL quilt/hoodless sleeping bag.
      Pretty shiny... But that's what you get for the light weight nylon.

      Pretty Freaking Awesome

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

      I tried more than a dozen belay parkas before settling on this one. Here were my requirements:

      1. Climbing features (2-way zip, big hood).

      2. Light, compresses small.

      3. Excellent down and good baffles that loft to their max.

      I wanted DWR down but it wasn't a deal breaker. I tried offerings from Rab, Montane, Marmot, Montbell, TNF, MHW, Patagonia,... even "other" brands (which were actually really good) like EMS, REI, EB and LL Bean (LL Bean was the best of these).

      The 18 oz. Incandescent easily stuffs into an XS S2S ultra sil. Despite the superlight fabric I have had no problems with the durability - but when racked up I am mindful not to catch screw points.

      The hood fits over a helmet; when fully zipped the collar will cover your chin (a good thing). The zipper works. The hand pockets are behind the insulation and warm.

      The cut fits a muscular guy without stretching out and compressing the down, but doesn't waste any space making this a very thermally efficient piece.

      If I could have everything, it would have box baffles in the body. But at a windy belay nothing came through and I never felt anything but warm. On a less burly day it was personal heater that dried me out nicely.

      On so-cold-we-really-should-not-climb days I have my Marmot Greenland. Otherwise, this parka rocks.

      Warm and Comfy

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Medium

      Lightweight. Very warm and very comfortable. I try to find excuses to wear it.

      I'm slim but tall (40" chest; 32" waist) so I have challenges finding a good fit (I'm between a medium and a large; slim fit). The OR medium fits me perfectly in the body and sleeves. This is my second OR down and both are medium and fit the same.

      I tend to use this jacket casually (pre/post activities and around town) and my OR Transcendent Hoody for more athletic pursuits.

      The "puffiness" of this jacket is perfect. It is the "middle bed".

      So shiny

      • Fit: True to size

      I purchased the pewter and lemon grass. Way brighter than picture shows. It took a few days but it grew on me. Nice jacket though seems delicate but with OR's life
      time warranty should not be an issue.

      Hey Kevin, you are right about it being delicate. Not to be skied through the trees! Just treat it right and you will love it. It really is a light fabric (10 denier) which allows for the whole package to be light and for the 800 fill goose down to loft to its fullest potential.

      You also nailed it about OR warranty: Infinite Guaranty!


      OR Rep

      Thanks O.R. best puffy out there...

        Unless half your gear and clothing have some duct tape on them the locals usually smirk at any new clothing.
        Well it was a Cold blue bird foot plus of fresh kind of morning and I will be damned if my local buds didn't give me a shout out on the puffy.
        I was comfortably warm and hardly felt it on. Waiting in line 40 minutes +++ for the patrol to get done so we can rock our favorite know the drill. If thats the case you need this O.R. Puffy
        Bought a medium 5'11 166-169lbs and wear a 35" sleeve dress shirt. I am 62 now and have researched, owned and gotten rid of more than a few down jackets. This one is a keeper.

        I have been trying on Down Jackets left and right trying to find the "Just Right" on :

        Size/Fit (I am 5/10 Athletic build @ 180lbs)

        Low weight down

        Correct Fill

        Pockets/placement of pockets


        This the first and only to have hit a 5 out of 5 in all those categories.


        Warmest Jacket I've ever owned

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

        Can't put into words how warm this Jacket it. I'll try though; Standing outside with just this and a tank top underneath with Windchill at -24*F this January in NH. No issues with cold period. The Pertex Quantum fabric is fragile but thats to be expected at 10D. If you truly want a warm puffy, look no further.

        Warmth without weight

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times
        • Fit: True to size

        This jacket is awesome! It kept me really warm on summits last weekend (12/22/14) in the Adirondack High Peaks. The temps were hovering in the low teens with 20-30 mile winds. As soon as I threw this on over my shell I was toasty warm as I took in the gorgeous views.

        With it's great warmth to weight ratio I could see myself justifying having this in my pack for all but the warmest excursions this summer.

        I originally picked up a large, but found it a bit snug with extra insulating layers beneath and switched it out for an XL which is a little bulky, but can fit comfortably over several layers. When trying it on at home I layered it over a baselayer, polyester wind bloc hoody, fleece jacket, and shell.

        Best down jacket I have owned

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times
        • Fit: True to size

        My first OR product (other than gaiters), and it is already my favorite down jacket I own (have or had Marmot, Feathered Friends, North Face, Rab, and Mountain Equipment from England). 210 grams of 800 fill in my medium. Perfect by itself or under a shell when I ski the top of Colorado. Wore it when temps were -10 at summit of A-Basin under a shell and was toasty. Fit and finish are excellent - very similar with Feathered Friends quality. This is the right balance when ultralight down is not warm enough but an expedition weight duvet/belay parka (with say 250 grams of fill) is too warm or too bulky. Fit is good. Finally some companies are making sleeves that are long enough although OR does not post sleeve length on sizing chart. 6'3" and 180 and the medium is great. I wear a 35/36 sleeve length in dress shirts and the sleeves on this jacket are probably 35.

        Unmatched warmth to weight ratio

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        If you spend a lot of time in the backcountry enjoying snow sports of any kind, you will encounter unpleasant temperatures. If you go prepared your chances of staying warm and comfortable increase dramatically making your experience way more enjoyable. I always bring a packable down jacket with me anytime i venture off the beaten path.

        The Incandescent is ridiculously warm for how light it is, and packs into the size of a small camp pillow. This jacket comes along with me anytime i plan on spending a night out in the cold.


        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        This jacket is pretty perfect. It's incredibly warm and incredibly lightweight, and the size small fits me perfect. Nice big pockets on either side for warming your hands or storing stuff, and I love the tall collar and hood for when it's super cold- it's much warmer than a hat. The jacket also compresses down to a really small size, which is perfect for taking along on a skinning or snowshoeing outing. The material is definitely aimed at being lightweight and compressible rather than durable, so I wouldn't put this jacket through lots of trees, bushes or rocks.

        The only small gripe I have is the double zipper- it can get stuck here are there if it's not starting at the very bottom of the jacket, but it's easily fixed.

        OR has made a great piece!


        Light, super warm, looks good, fits well

        • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

        Actually fits tall, athletic dudes (6'4" 220), long sleeves/torso. This is a good in-between jacket - Eddie Bauer Peak XV parka at the warmest end, Patagonia down sweater at the lighter end. Down shirts at the lightest. It's 30% off right now, dang no brainer if you need a warm coat. It's pretty thin though so I wouldn't take it into highly abrasive environments as everyone has already made clear.

        Toasty, light and dry

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        So much warmth is packed into this light weight down coat. Huge loft, packs small, great hood, pockets, easy cuffs, fits long in the back keeping your arse warm. I almost find this coat too warm which is amazing for how ridiculously light it is. I don't think the shell is going to take a big beating so don't go thrashing through the woods with it on!

        Light and Warm

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

        If you're going to be bushwacking through alder this isn't your jacket but if you're up high or out for a few days and want a grapefruit sized 800+ fill down piece that will keep you toasty warm look no further. Sure you trade a little bit of durability for extreme packability but the shell is still pertex protecting those lofty feathers from moisture and if you need lots warmth and durability you can pull a shell over it like the Mentor or even more bomber, the Maximus from Outdoor Research.

        Light and Warm

        Does anyone know the fill weight?

        Hi - I'm tall and thin, 6'3" 170. what size do you recommend? my sleeves are 35/36 in a dress shirt. If a coat is a trim fit then I'm usually a large. But I'm a solid Med in certain brands with long sleeves, like mountain hardware. Thanks for the help.
        BTW, I have the OR down vest in a M and it's snug but perfect as an insulating layer, but I can't do too much underneath it. Thanks again!

        Does it have an inside pocket and is the hood helmet compatible? Thanks!

        I disagree with the gearhead's answer. I tried this on at Rock & Snow (New Paltz, NY) with a helmet, and the hood does stretch over a helmet and can be zipped. It covered my chin but not my mouth unless I pulled it up over my face, which can be a good thing.

        The fabric seems a little - shiny - in the pix. Is that truly the case?

        I'm 5'9, 160lbs and thinking of getting a Incandescent in Med (on paper my measurements match up great).

        I'd also like to get the OR Furio shell to wear over the Incandescent - Ideally I'd also like the option of wearing the Furio alone and not swimming in it. Wondering if I should get a Med or Large Furio... anyone have experience with OR shells over this puffy?

        Hi. What size to choose me? I am 5'9" and...

        Hi. What size to choose me? I am 5'9" and 220 lbs with a 45 chest, 37 waist. OR "maestro" was very big/loose on me, a size XL swamped me, and am wondering to go with M or L. "Columbia", "Nike" - in size L very well sits on me.

        Even though you are still beyond a Large size in both the chest and Waist categories, I would try a Large before I would drop to a Medium. That would be, in my opinion, a drastic reduction in the amount of space that would be available inside the jacket for you to actually be comfortable.

        The Maestro is a "expedition fit" which means its wider longer cut is meant to fit over anything you are wearing. The OR Chaos is a similar still. I swim in the Large of both of those jackets.

        The Incandescent is a trim, athletic fit. The XL should fit you fine with some length in the arms.

        I"m 6'2" 180 and wear a large. Still some room in the body but length is good. I can layer under it still.

        Is the hood helmet compatible?

        am looking for a good belay jacket while ice climbing. consider:

        1. montbell frostline
