Vigor Half Zip Hoody
The Outdoor Research Vigor Half Zip Hoody is the perfect active midlayer for your outdoor excursions, built for everything from ski touring to alpine climbing. Built with stretch materials and Dynamic Reach, you’ll stay unrestricted when reaching for holds or doing long strides on the skintrack.
A grid-lock fleece panel in the underarms and lower back wicks moisture and improves airflow to dump excess heat when you’re working up a sweat, and a fleece front section keeps your core warm where you need it most. Flat seams reduce rubbing for all day comfort, and UPF30 protection helps defend from the sun’s harmful rays when you’re not wearing a shell. Zippered pockets securely hold your phone or snacks, while a fixed hood with an elastic cuff protects you from the elements.

I've worn this almost every day for the last month+. That includes a trip to Chicago, a mtn biking trip to CO, climbing, and camping in the Utah desert. As you can see by the picture, I raved about it so much my girlfriend had to steal it.
I love that this piece provides enough insulation to keep out the chill but wont let to overheating on hot days. This piece more than any other midlayer I've had looks stylish when layered with most anything. The super stretchy poly/spandex material makes for a great fitting piece for most anyone as well. I'm a big fan of thumb holes so the subtle and comfortable "thloop" design on this piece gets 2 looped thumbs up from me.
In short, this can be worn anywhere and used for most everything.

I wore this jacket for early morning hikes around Salt Lake, and love it. I could see myself wearing it as a mid layer skiing, camping, climbing when it's a little chilly, or just around town as a nice hoodie.
The fabric is super flexible and easy to move in, the sleeves are a great length, and I like that the thumb holes aren't obvious. I don't use thumb holes most of the time, so I like that they are hidden well. You would also be able to fit the hood under a helmet and keep your ears warm.
I am very happy with this product, and think OR does a really good job in making technical items that you can wear everywhere.
