Why We Like The MicroGravity Jacket

Reliable waterproofing and athletically-inclined breathability bolster the Outdoor Research MicroGravity Jacket for most of our mountainous endeavors under rain and snow. It can fend off summer rains on a hike high in the alpine, and it sheds all the snow spraying across your body when you're backcountry touring through fresh powder. Despite its robust waterproof, windproof protection, the MicroGravity's air permeable fabric begins to breathe the moment you put the jacket on. High levels of breathability like this are best used when you're moving fast.

Runs small but otherwise great!

I bought this with the intention of it being my main backcountry ski jacket, and not for rain so I can't comment on how well it is waterproof. But personally, it is somewhat of a heavy jacket for rainy warm weather. I loved it today in zero temps with a thin fleece hoody and wool shirt on underneath. I was a little concerned about how the stiff, tall collar would feel on my face, but it was great coverage and roomy enough so my neck gator fit underneath it just fine. I sized up in this jacket because I need to layer and went with XL which meant it was fairly long and covered my bum, but still surprisingly close fitting around the hips which is common for me in OR tops. It is a great weight for cold backcountry ski days, lighter than my older OR Skytour shell but heavier than the Motive. I am posting a photo. Love the color too. In the photo I also have on the insulated Snowcrew ski pants which were toasty on this bitter cold day!

Perfect jacket

I wear this rain shell for just about any weather. Haze is such a great color, the pockets are convenient, and it blocks a fair amount of wind. It's super lightweight too!

Not waterproof enough

I've owned this jacket for a year now. At first I loved it. Held up well in alight drizzle and worked as a wind layer. I've worn it a few days storm skiing and a few heavy rain days on river trips. The velcro tabs on the wrists rip at the seams easily. The fabric the jacket is made out of tears extremely easily, just a brush against some pine branches. The zippers don't seem to keep the rain out and the seams are not waterproof in my experience. I usually wear a medium but ordered up so I could add extra layers. It's not as large as I would like. I don't not recommend this jacket. It's just not a jacket I would rely on to keep me dry.

RETURNED

The sleeves were too long and the hips were too tight.

Trim fit didn't work for me

This seemed like a great rain jacket, but the Trim Fit didn't work for me. It was too tight in the chest and hips, yet the arms seemed oversized. I really liked that the inside had a fabric texture rather than clammy waterproof material of many other rain jackets. It it fit better it would have been a keeper.
