Outdoor Research Feedback Flannel Shirt - Men's

Deceptively technical.

Outdoor Research heard our pleas for a fashionable flannel that performs outside, because the Men's Feedback Button-Down fits that description to a T. This flannel wicks moisture and dries quickly when you're working up a sweat in the mountains, and its brushed interior feels comfy for casual use. Injected with cold-weather insulation, the Feedback makes a great midlayer for sessions at the ski resort.

Great shirt, runs large

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs large
  • Size Bought: large

Rugged and durable. Insanely comfortable. I have worn this shirt almost nonstop since getting it last week. It is softer with each wash.

My only complaint is the size. I am 5'11" and 175lbs. Average build. I usually wear a large in everything. This fits my chest and shoulders well, but the shirt is looong. But worse is that there's a lot of excess material around the midsection - like it's made for someone with a little gut?
I like the shirt so much though that I'm going to get it tailored. It will probably be my favorite shirt in my line-up once it fits.

Love this flannel for everything

Awesome fit, Super soft and its great for camping, for casual use and as a baselayer! Definitely going to pick up a couple more of these!

Favorite Flannel

Within a week of buying this flannel I came back and grabbed another color. Great fit, color ways, and style. Works great as a casual piece as well as an active layer.

This is my most comfortable flannel, hands down. The material is not very stretchy, but the design allows for great movement. I typically fall somewhere between a medium and a large. Usually, I like mediums better aesthetically, but buy larges if I know I will be active in the garment. I have the size medium in this flannel and don't feel restricted in the the arm/shoulder region like I expected.

Comfy But Boxy

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs large
  • Size Bought: Medium

40" chest, 32" waist

I love the material; reasonably warm, and super comfortable. I like the cut in the sleeves, chest, and neck, but wish the waist was trimmer. I did get this on sale, so I took it to my tailor with all the money I saved. Not surprisingly, first thing she said was "That's a nice shirt."

I don't think I'd pay full price for regular fit, but if OR made one just like it in slim, I'd buy them all.

Wonderful flannel and color pattern

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs large
  • Size Bought: Medium

I like the flannel. It's a good weight and although it's all polyester, it's feels like a nice cotton weave. The warmth level is nice for wearing over a T-shirt in cool temps in the mid 40s. I'm sure it'll be great on hikes especially with the wicking characteristics. Would have been 5 stars but it does run a bit baggy on me. I am stocky and typically a Medium fits great but this felt a little on the baggy side for me.

Feels so good

  • Size Bought: Small

I love this shirt. This is my first flannel and I think its going to be hard having another after this one. It fits great (not too baggy), is thick, warm, and looks great. I haven't put it through the wringer yet, but the quality seems as it should be from OR.

Thanks for the great review, Griffin!

True back country shirt!

  • Fit: True to size

This is what I consider to be a true flannel! Nice weight and good fit- I have a hard time finding flannel that fits well in the chest and shoulders without being a tent at the waist, and this fits right. I have had heavier flannels, but they seem to always shrink up so they don't stay tucked in with activity- I don't have that problem with this one, so it actually keeps me warmer and more comfortable than most- obviously lined flannel is warmer, but it isn't as comfortable. Also like that it has different colors and is a little nicer looking than my typical lumber-jack type flannel

Thanks Derek! Now, I want a women's Feedback Flannel! We do have a nice one on the women's side, but I really like the tech aspects of this flannel: hollow core poly brushed flannel that dries quickly and is a great mid layer!

Enjoy,

Buy It! You will love it!

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

I live in Birmingham, Al. So, it can be in the 30s in the morning and the 60s by 1:00. I can be comfortable all day wearing it. From the city to a day hike it feels great. Throw a backpack on and you don't have to worry about the shoulder seams rubbing you wrong. Lite rain it holds its warmth. The ladies seem to like it too. With the good looks, softness, and performance it will became one of your favorite go to flannels.

Jacob, Thank you for the great review!

Cool

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

This thing is nice. I think it has the perfect mix of warm but not-too-warm material. I purchased the earth color and I think I'll have to double dip for the kale color. Cool shirt, great fit.

Hey Morgan - thank you for the review... I am just waiting for OR to do a technical women's flannel in the same fabric!

Enjoy,

This is a very nice looking, warm flannel. It's comfy too. What more needs to be said.

Thanks for the review, Patrick!

Happy New Year,
