Great shell

  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Medium

I’m gonna use this jacket! It’s light weight and very packable. Great for ski touring to go over layers when it gets a little windy or cool. I’m glad I bought the medium as others my size went with the small, it’s a trim fit!

One for me, one for my girl!

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

After using my Ferrosi hoody for a while, I knew I had to get one for my girlfriend! Heres what I had to say about my Ferrosi:
"Any serious outdoorsman/woman needs a softshell in their closet. Works great as a midlayer or outerlayer depending on your needs. This particular softshell is a lightweight one, with good windproofing but wont peform well in very serious winds. I like using it as an outer layer for climbing, or a midlayer/outerlayer for ski touring,"

light and right

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

I love this thing! It's my go-to for shoulder season hikes and multipitch climbs. It's lightweight and packable, but provides great resistance to wind and just enough warmth to keep you going without having to add an insulating layer. Every active person should have one of these.

Your Go-To Jacket!

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

This is one of the most versatile jackets I have ever used! Super lightweight as well, I highly recommend it.

love it

    This is a great piece for fall and spring hikes. It is a lighter weight softshell. Packs and washes well.

    Thank you for the review, Lisa!

    What size did you buy? I'm also 5'10/ 160lb. Thanks in advance!

    Does the trick!

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

    The Ferrosi is my go-to softshell for ski touring on wet/ windy days. It's breathable enough that I can wear it on the uphill without getting too hot, but really does the trick against wind and snow. If I have a good fleece layer underneath I often won't even throw on my hardshell for the downhill, and just ski down in the Ferrosi.

    Size wise, I'd say the Ferrosi fits true to size. I'm 5'7" and 124 lbs and I picked up a medium. I do wish it was just a bit longer in the torso, but otherwise it's perfect.

    If you have any further questions about this product I am happy to help! You can call me directly at 801-619-7488, or email me at kansari@backcountry.com.

    Great feedback - thank you Karsyn!

    Ferocious Ferrosi!

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

    This is the best lightweight protective layer! It is super thin so don't expect a ton of insulation, but it is perfect for light wind and a bit of extra warmth! It is best as an active layer, so awesome for running, climbing, hiking, etc. The fit is nice because you have space to layer a little under while still having a trim fit. Like most of OR's jackets, it can pack into the pocket and there's a loop to hook it to your harness or pack. Love this jacket!

    Awesome Jacket!

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Small

    I was hesitant to try this jacket out because I have another jacket with the same material that is really thick and not very comfortable to wear. The material on this Ferrosi though is perfect! It's really lightweight and breathable but also sturdy and will keep you warm. I'm excited to take it on chilly climbs this fall because the material stretches really well and doesn't restrict movement. The pockets are very low profile and will be great for sitting under a harness. Overall just a great and versatile purchase.

    Does everything and then the Kitchen sin

    This is one of the most versatile jackets I have ever used. I can't say enough good things about it. Just get one and it will change your life!

    Great lightweight soft-shell

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

    I bring this jacket with me everywhere in the spring, fall, and summer. It is extremely lightweight but protects from the wind and keeps me warm when it gets a little chilly in the mountains! I especially love it for an extra layer mountain biking or when the wind comes in at the summit of peaks!

    Incredibly Lightweight

    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: small

    This jacket was bought for my girlfriend who was looking for a good softshell. It wasn't exactly what she was looking for, but it is incredibly light and comfortable. Perfect for backpacking and adventuring !

    Best lightweight softshell

      This is a great jacket. No way around it.



      It's light, breathable, and kills the wind. I've had mine for over a year now and was just reminded how awesome it is when I was on a boat offshore the other day when it was 40-50 degrees and windy and all I needed was this over a long sleeve shirt to stay warm because once the wind was cut by the jacket all was good in the world.



      My husband forgot his and was jealous.

      Best lightweight softshell

      All around-er

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

      I take my Ferossi on almost every outdoor pursuit. From hiking in Torres del Paine to ice climbing in Vermont. This softshell is super light and VERY breathable. Its great for cold, windy days that you're doing high cardio activities or a light shell for climbing. The fit is athletic and is easy to layer under and over. The stretchy material makes it an awesome shell to rock climb in, without feeling any restriction in the arms or back.

      After a good wash, this jacket is also reasonably waterproof for wetter ice climbing days or light rain. Dries super fast also!

      All around-er

      Great aerobic layer

        my wife loves her ferrosi. we live at 7k feet and the jacket is great for sun and wind protection, even when it's warm out. Also, she said she can run or bike in cool weather without overheating, and ski or snowshoe in warm weather and still be comfy. plus, the material is really stretchy and works well for climbing.



        the jacket does not provide much insulation or precipitation protection, so look somewhere else if that's what you need.

        Perfect for Spring

        • Fit: True to size

        This is the perfect hoody for when a cool spring breeze is blowing. The technical fabric blocks both light rain and wind, and it's stretchy, durable and breathable. It doesn't snag or get hung up on rocks or when hiking through dense trees (I live in a forest). It has two comfortable zippered hand pockets and a zippered chest pocket. It's lightweight, and one of the pockets doubles as a stuff sack, so it can be tossed in a pack and forgotten about until it's needed. The arm and body length is perfect, and the shape is flattering (not too tight or baggy). I got mine in Alpine Lake / Night, which is a gorgeous color combination.

        I love the Ferrosi ! Now I have two!

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

        I bought my first Ferrosi Jacket (brown and black) a few years ago and have really put it through the wringer. It is my "go to" crag and alpine rock climbing jacket. This jacket has been washed a bajillion times and the fabric has not pilled and it is still water resistant. So if this jacket is so great why did I need another one? I really wanted to put a splash of color in my climbing life...and climbing photos! I went with the adobe red and it is sweet! I do not have any issues with the Ferrosi fabric on my skin (see the other review) and think it is a very comfortable jacket. I think it is a great choice for climbing, hiking, backpacking and just tooling around town.

        Very nice jacket

        • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
        • Fit: True to size

        I had been looking forward to trying the Ferrosi jacket in a non-colorblocked and not black version and ordered the Adobe red. Adobe is a good name for this red, a really nice red with just a hint of orange.



        It is a great jacket, good fit, stretchy enough for comfort, nice weight, hood fits, and the sleeves are long enough for my a little bit long arms. The downside for me is that with a short sleeved shirt the jacket's fabric feels scratchy on my arms, it made me want to take the jacket off immediately. I think most people won't mind the fabric but for me it is a deal breaker. I am sadly returning the jacket.

        Nice light shell

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

        Great fit, easy to layer but not bulky, breathable, cuts the wind, super light, long enough for my arms, water resistant. I made it out for my first climb of the spring, slipped and slid sideways on some mud. Was bummed because I was meeting a friend later at a bar, with no time for a costume change. No mud or signs of my slip on my jacket by the time I got to the bar! Can't beat self-cleaning gear.

        Awesome little jacket

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        This jacket is a must for any active person. I have the collared version, and I love it and use it for climbing, hiking, biking, and around town. It packs into its pocket with a little carabiner loop for an added bonus, and I just throw it into my climbing pack whenever I'll need something to block the wind or a drizzling rain. This thing rocks! The fabric has done well on climbs and after a few washes, it's still done a superb job of keeping its fit. Sizing seems a little roomy, but that's how I like it so I can layer underneath if needed.

        Awesome little jacket

        Versatile protection and durable

          This shell is so useful and so effective! I use it for everything: sport and alpine climbing, hiking/backpacking, wearing around town, and even motorbiking! It's durable enough to wear shimmying up cracks and chimneys and stylish enough to wear in town. At 11.2oz, it's not the lightest, most packable shell on the market, but arguably more versatile and durable than something lighter. It is, however, light-weight enough that I took it with me to Thailand in lieu of other jackets?and it proved it's value there too as it's not too hot, but adds just the right warmth when needed and blocks wind so well. I often replace it for my rain jacket too since it has proven effective to keep me dry in light rain storms. Love the stretchy fabric and side zip pockets (they are big enough to hold anything I want). At 5'3? and 135lbs, I got a medium, which is pretty baggy, but still looks good and has plenty of room to layer, which was important for me. For a more fitted look, I'd go with the small. The length is good for staying put underneath a harness to block wind too.
