    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.

    • Hybrid-mapped fleece hoody for demanding activities in the cold
    • Polartec fleece construction is both breathable and warm
    • Trim fit helps contain body heat and enhance movement

    • Balaclava-style hood wraps your melon in toasty comfort

    Probably good without a hood

    Seemed like a good midlayer with one exception - the hood. The hood is not adjustable and it covered my eyes.

    Transition Hooded Fleece Jacket

    A layering essential. This hoodie vents like crazy! Though I bought it for my snowboarding baselayer, I recently used it as my outer layer while mountain biking in 40 deg temps and it worked great.

    I am 5'7'' 165lbs and the size M fits well.

    Aaaammmazing Touring Hoody

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

    Honestly, this is my go-to mid layer for touring. Its nice and warm with that Polatec, but definitely still dumps heat when you need it to. Also, its pretty thin, so layering under a shell is super easy to do. Its comfortable, its warm, and it makes my life better, easy peasy! I got large, which was a teeny bit too bit for me, but thats alright. Definitely pick one up for a sweet polartec mid-later

    Favorite piece of gear - period.

    The transition hoody is honestly my #1 favorite piece out of my entire gear closet. It's just enough warmth to keep me warm when i'm moving fast up a mountain in cooler temps, a nice piece to have for summer nights that aren't just hot or just cold, layers great under a shell for when it's wet and rainy, and works well to keep me warm when paired with a light down jacket in the lower 30s. I'm considering buying a second one even though I don't need it, just because i love this thing so much. I've worn this on 85% of my adventures (which are 3 out of 4 weekends a month) in the year that I've had it and I'm in love.

    Go-To Layer—Winter & Summer

    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.
