Alpine Down Hooded Jacket

The Alpine Down Hooded Jacket is one of Outdoor Research's warmer puffies better geared for 6000 meter alpinism. It's loaded with 800-fill down insulation to feel surprisingly warm for how little the jacket weighs. A hybrid construction, the shell combines ultralight, ultra-packable Pertex Quantum Y fabric around the body with more protective Pertex Quantum Pro fabric at the hood and sleeves. Quantum Pro reinforces high-wear areas with added weather-resistance to bead raindrops and snowflakes right off the shell. Outdoor Research fitted the shell with Dynamic Reach gussets to ensure full mobility on the mountain.

Great Jacket for a Cold Winter

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

Immediately I notice the small features that tailor this jacket for the alpine climber. A helmet compatible hood, large pockets accessible while wearing a harness, a front zipper that can be unzipped from the bottom to keep you warm while you tie in or give a belay, and a stretchiness that allows you to reach your arms above your head with ease. The Pertex Fabric wicked away drops of water falling off the curtains of ice dangling above me. While keeping a weight of 19 ounces, the jacket is baffled in a way that down stays where it needs to be and makes the most use of what is available.

Great Jacket for a Cold Winter

Wonderful

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

This is by far the warmest and most comfortable jacket I have ever worn. Its not just that it is warm, the inner fabric has a soft feel. I havent used this as my main winter outerlayer but have used it for belays and it stuffs well into my pack.

Extremely fragile

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

Outdoor Research bills this product as a 6000m puffy and even uses the word "durability" in the first sentence of its marketing language. I purchased for its intended use: winter mountaineering. I am no stranger to caring for ultralight 800-fill summit parkas and understand that durability is often sacrificed in favor of ounces. On my third hike using this jacket, a brush against a blunt summit rock resulted in a mega-gash that completely emptied one of the jacket's 7 baffles. I've used similar jackets on Rainier, Hood, Orizaba, Gannett, 14ers, winter hikes in the Northeast, etc., often with sharp technical equipment. Never have I ever seen such instant and total failure in the face of the smallest abrasion. OR declined to offer a repair or replacement, which was disappointing considering that many other companies stand by their gear.

Durability concerns aside, it seemed like a wonderful jacket. It was comfortable, lightweight, warm and had thoughtful features for a summit parka. It just doesn't stand up to the actual use for which it was designed. Hence, two stars instead of one. I hope that future versions have slightly more durable face fabric -- I would have paid $50 more for a jacket that lasted longer than a month.

Hi there - I am so sorry - this shouldnt have happened, because of the type of fabric we use called Pertex Quantum Y Fuse... but I also know that sharp objects can get through just about anything. The Y fuse fabric is really durable for abrasion, but again, if there is a sharp rock...

anyway, OR will gladly warranty this for you. Please reach out to them and they will walk you through. www.outdoorresearch.com
