    Stay dry when you're getting barreled.

    Gnarly lines, deep snow, and serious weather require the big-time protection of a shell like the Outdoor Research White Room Men's Jacket. Simple but not minimal and rugged but not heavy, the White Room is designed to handle long approaches, steep climbs, and burly descents without a second thought. Naturally, it starts with its waterproof and breathable three-layer Gore-Tex membrane. It's laminated to a polyester and spandex shell for stretch and freedom of movement, and topped off with articulated elbows and a helmet-compatible hood to keep you moving easily on the way up and the way down.

    If you're working hard to put in the vert, you can pop open the extra-long CrossFlo vents for some cooling airflow, and when you get to the top and start to cool off, zip them back up, stick your skins in the large drop-in chest pocket, snap down the removable and adjustable powder skirt, and get ready to send it. The White Room's fully taped seams, hook-and-loop cuffs, and drawcord hem have you covered when the skies open up and the snow starts to come down, and the integrated Recco reflector provides a little backup in case of an in-bounds emergency. There are other resort-friendy features, too, like a sleeve pocket for your ski pass and a chest media pocket that makes it easy to keep the tunes rolling from the first bell to the last.

    Solid Jacket, not super comfortable

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 6'1"
    • Weight: 160lbs

    I still have yet to use this jacket for resort, sidecountry, and backcountry skiing but I can tell that it will definitely get the job done.
    Pros:
    Windproof/waterproof, nice design, gigantic pit/chest zips.
    Cons:
    Not very comfortable (the inner layer of the jacket seems to grab anything that is not nylon type material, makes it pretty clunky)
    I would like it to be a few inches longer as it barely goes over hip bones
    Pretty expensive
    Zippers are really hard and not very user friendly but I'm sure they'll keep all water at bay.
    Pit zips don't have a mesh so forgetting to close them and falling in powder would be a cold disaster

    Overall definitely a good purchase for a shell, especially if on sale. Wear a nylon puffy jacket under it and it will slide the way you would expect and not be as uncomfortable. Some issues with zips and what not but nothing major.

    Get this if you like a shorter fit

    The trend in ski shells has gone so far towards a longer fit, that even jackets that say they're a short fit usually aren't. This jacket is. The quality is superb, and it has all of the features I was looking for with one minor disapointment: The internal drop-in pocket is smaller than what I wanted, because I like to place goggles or skins in this location. The chest pockets are large enough for skins, however. It's a great fit with room for layer, and I've put on a beer belly in my old age. If you want a slim fit size down or look elsewhere.

    White roomed in the white room

    For the deepest of days up Little Cottonwood Canyon I always turn to the white room. Over the last 2 seasons I've put over 150 days in this thing and still doesn't let a drop of water in. Has all the bells and whistles you want to for an in-bounds jacket. Pow skirt, large internal shove-it pocket, two chest pockets (one with media port and goggle wipe), wrist closures with over-thumb or around thumb options. It doesn't get much better than this jacket for skiing/riding in-bounds.

    This jacket was my primary shell in winter of 2016, time spent mostly in Mammoth and Hokkaido. It's a little thick for a tech shell, but that's where it excels. VERY stormproof. Great pockets, but it fell short (literally)due to the 29.5 center back length. It's not a good shell for riding powder - it fits more like a street jacket. I'm off the rack medium - most everything fits me perfectly. This jacket is just too short for my preferences. Even with the pow skirt, if you take a bad tumble, you're getting snow down your pants unless you have a bib on.



    The sleeves are a tad long, but that makes it nice on cold days when I don't have gloves on (comes right up to the base of my thumb).

    Bombproof but not for long torsos.

    I was given the pleasure this weekend to take the Outdoor Research White Room Jacket out to Brighton in Utah on a wet and snowy Saturday. On Sunday with about 2 feet of fresh POW I went on a ski tour around Big Cottonwood Canyon and let me tell you this jacket is EPIC!! My favorite feature besides the awesome Gore-Tex water proofing is the venting. Being that this jacket was so killer for resort skiing at Brighton, I was worried about how it would perform in the backcountry. The way the vents on this jacket are arranged makes all the difference. They start underneath your armpit and come up towards your chest. This design does an awesome job at dumping heat and keeping me cool while hiking around. As soon as I closed the vents I was ready for the cold windy conditions ahead. I would totally recommend this jacket for anyone looking for a jacket that can do it all and look good while doing it. Photo credit @andymontanna.

    I recently wore this jacket for the first time in the Northeast storm "Stella" at one of the local ski resorts. There was a foot of fresh powder and temperatures were in the low teens. The powder skirt came in handy as well as the cross-flow (pit) vents. I am 6' 1" and 195 lbs with an athletic build. I bought Lemongrass color in size large. The jacket is a relaxed fit, but is exactly what I was looking for in terms of a jacket that I could layer. A couple nice features about the jacket are the in jacket RFID pass holder, goggle cloth, and polyester lining. I would recommend and the Lemongrass color helps stand out in a crowd.

    Just spent three days in this jacket in sun, snow, and high winds. It fits well, zippers works well, hood pops over your helmet with one hand.

    I like the front vent zips better than pit zips. Collar is nice and snug when you zip up. Powder cuff is great.
    You will stay dry and not feel the wind in this jacket.

    good reliable jacket

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

    Im a slender build and usually go medium, and this jacket is no exception, a wider cut common to OR jackets leaves room for some layers under, but still slim enough to not feel like its "to much." Double chest pockets with headphone access, attached goggle cloth, and inside big mesh pocket are the essentials i like about this layer. Two easy to zip and unzip vents from the chest to the side offer easy venting and closing again. Not changing the game with this jacket, just a well made, waterproof jacket with the pockets and zips you want for an in-bound day.

    good reliable jacket

    Awesome Jacket

      I needed an upgrade from my old ripped up ski jacket and decided to go with the White Room. It's an amazing upgrade! So far I've only used it at the resort but can't wait to get this thing into the backcountry. The material is strong and does a great job keeping the elements out, especially with the hood up over my helmet. Paired with my mid-layer puff, it keeps me well regulated without sacrificing comfort. I love the configuration of the armpit ventilation zippers - way faster and easier than the vertical style.

      Now, time to get picky with a small gripe:
      Engaging the main zipper into the pull tab and box takes some alignment and force (and maybe even some luck?). This does not bode well with my gloves, making it tough to zip up in a jiff, especially when not in the comfort of the indoors.

      Took this on a trip out to the grand. Jacket is bulletproof and everything you would expect from OR and Gore. They really made this jacket special by adding spandex to allow this to stretch if you are climbing, swinging an ice axe, or grabbing a cold beer at the end of the trip. The vents are huge on this jacket which sometimes can be an issue. Bottom line is the guys and gals at OR have thought through this jacket and its everything you want in a technical shell. If you have any questions feel free to reach out directly!

      Outdoor Research if you don't know started out in the accessory game. Recently have introduced outerwear. The white room jacket brings all the good. 3 layer Gore. Burly 78D. Good size helmet compatible hood. All aquaguard zips.



      I am 5'11" 195lbs and this jacket is a size Large. Plenty of room for a base and mid layer.

      Windproof! Waterproof! Bulletproof?

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: XL
      • Height: 6'4"
      • Weight: 220lbs

      This is a great jacket, and one of the few times that you do get what you pay for. I have used this for work on windy days, used it on powder days for snow, and even used it when it rains. This coupled with a down jacket is about all you need to make any day tolerable. The hood even fits over my XL POC Ski helmet. The trick to getting the hood over is to have the jacket unzipped about halfway and then put the hood over, and zip it up the rest of the way. What might be a cool / colder day with no hood instantly feels 20% warmer with the hood up.

      It is mildly annoying to have to adjust the hood for when you aren't wearing a helmet, but that is the sacrifice you make when using a helmet capable hood.

      The arms on the jacket are super long, which is great for someone my size. The sleeves come down to about the middle of my palm. The actual length of the jacket itself is a little short for me, so when I'm riding the lift there is a gap in my pants and my jacket. I would recommend pants with some kind of bibs that will cover the midriff. If only OR made a tall pant with bibs in lemongrass yellow I would snatch them up in a heart beat.

      The jacket also looks great too. The vents can be hard to reach when wearing gloves, but that is just because they huge. The pockets seem to be in a weird place for people who don't wear backpacks or harnesses because they are designed for that. Not inconvenient just odd feeling at first. The zippers are not taped, but I haven't had any issues with any kind of leak through.

      Hey Matthew - thank you for a great review. The zippers are indeed waterproof - its a design that does not need a separate flap over it. I am bummed they don't have this jacket for women, but I have a few friends who are skiing in this and love it!

      Enjoy!

      Looks and feels great

      • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Small

      I bought this jacket as a gift for my brother in hydro/night, and I'm impressed with how it looks and feels so far. I haven't gotten a full report on it from him yet, but I like more accessible placement of the chest vents on the sides of the chest instead of under the arms -- it seems like they'll be much easier to zip and unzip. The fit looks very true to size, and the jacket feels like it will be lightweight and breathable. Plus, the hydro/night colors are just as they appear in the photos, really bright and saturated.

      Great jacket - long arms

      • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
      • Fit: Runs large

      Everything about this jacket is 5+ stars. Quality, looks, feel, durability. The only thing that didn't work for me was the extra long arms. I get the arms need to be long enough to cover the wrists when you extend above your head, but this is longer than other high end shells. Returned it for the Millet Trilogy GTX

      Hi Robert, I am sorry the sizing didnt work for you. OR makes this jacket roomy so that you can move easily through the trees. The longer arms allows for the wearer to fit the cuff over under cuff gloves, and use our Thumb Drive feature (holding the cuff in place over the glove.

      I'm sorry you returned it - it is an awesome jacket!

      The material on this jacket is great in that it's kind of soft and a bit stretchy unlike a lot of other G-T shells. Plenty of pockets, but I wish the hand-warmer pockets were a little lower and with wider openings. As another reviewer said, the sleeves are tad long, but not crazy-long.
      -
      The velcro on the cuffs also needs to be longer in order to cinch the cuffs to your wrists. They were obviously intended to be worn over your gloves, but I prefer to wear gauntlet gloves over my cuffs. Oh well, I'll get used to it.
      -
      The angled pit-zips actually DO work better than the vertical ones. Open from the top, and you'll be cooled off super-fast! I'm surprised other companies' jackets don't place their pit-zips the same way, since it works so well.
      -
      There is a thin flannel lining inside the jacket making it comfy to wear, but it doesn't add warmth. It's a shell and requires layering on cooler days.
      -
      I checked "true to size", but it does run just a wee bit big, and the red is not as bright as in the photo. I recommend this jacket!

      Nice jacket

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

      High quality ski jacket. The material is soft and not crinkly. It also has some stretch to it. The torso vents seemed like a gimic, but they actually work well. The arms are pretty long, could be an inch shorter for me, but not a big deal. There are plenty of pockets. My only complaint (typical of OR jackets) is the hand pockets should have longer zippers to make it easier to get stuff in and out. All in all, a well built jacket.

      One of the reasons I purchased this jacket was for the relaxed fit. I am 6ft with 41.5 inch chest and thinner frame vs bulky muscle. I find that there is some slight constriction in the armpit when worn with base layer, over shirt, mid layer. Do you find this as well? Should I get an XL? The arm length seems spot on for me in the LG.



      I am also wondering about the main zipper. I find that it takes 2-3 attempts to achieve lift off. Do you have this problem as well?

      Yes, it is a little tighter in the armpit area than I would like, but not too bad. The zippers are not the smoothest. The vent zippers get stuck periodically and you have to pull back and reset them to get them all the way closed. They do seem to be smoothing out over time, though.

      Can you describe the "polyester flannel lining" in the white room jacket? It is described as a shell, which I would not expect to have a lining.

      What is the actual colors of the zippers on the Night/Hydro? I've seen two different zipper colors on same jacket on the company website. Are there two different versions of the same jacket?

      What is the measurement of the bottom of the jacket where it hits the hips in a size small? I'm right between a small and medium. Ordered the medium, but seems big for my frame. For reference, the size chart says the medium hip is 39" and the actual jacket measures 46" at the hips.

      GP and Lisa,

      GP, sorry about any measurement error! These jackets are roomy. Lisa, you measured the diameter, not the circumference, yes? So the small would fit more like a 42"... Sorry, I don't have a small here, or else I would confirm!



      Leta

      OR Rep

      I just got the small in the mail today and it fits. 42" is accurate and I'd recommend anyone between small and medium size down because of the relaxed fit.



      Great jacket. Can't wait to get out there and try it out.

      I just purchased one of these. Description says there is a zippered sleeve pocket for a ski pass. I have yet to find it. Can anyone clue me into where it is? The only thing that I can find is on the bottom left side of the main zipper there is a little Velcro type sleeve. Perhaps this is for a pass?
