From one season to the next.
Making the move from fall into winter is always a fun and exciting time. Making it even more exciting is the Outdoor Research Men's Transition Hooded Fleece Jacket. Crafted with two types of Polartec Power Grid fleece fabric, the Transition features lighter weight grid fleece in the waist, back, and arms to dump body heat when you're moving, while heavier fleece in the body helps trap your core warmth. Meanwhile, a balaclava-style hood, thumbholes, and elastic cuffs stand tall against whipping winds and colder temps. Plus, a zippered chest pocket and two hand pockets carry your small essentials safely and securely.

- Q & A
Go-To Layer—Winter & Summer
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: Large
The Transition Hoody has become my favorite, tried and true layer year round. In the cold of winter, it layers super well with anything above it. In the spring, I’ll wear it for the up and under a shell for the down while skiing. And in the summer, it is the perfect addition in a small package for peak bagging, backpacking, or whatever else. The cut is athletic, but not overly slim and restrictive at all.
Transition into Warmth
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
This is a superb fleece for the transition times, when the weather can vary greatly over the course of a day; with this jacket able to keep you warm in the cold, but also breathe exceptionally when it gets warm. This is also a great jacket for intense activities as the material and boxed construction regulate temperature in a way that keeps you at a comfortable level. I have also found this jacket works great as a mid/base layer for colder actives, as the regulation works great even under a warmer layer.
