Après down.

It's a cold walk down to the brewery, and your cold and wet coat you've been skiing in all day isn't going to do you much good, so it's a good thing you brought your Outdoor Research Women's Placid Down Jacket along. Styled for the horizontal world, but plenty warm enough for life in the mountains, the Placid is the ideal coat for those cold days and nights spent in town. Its packed full of a 700-fill down for serious heat and has a snap-away hood to keep your melon warm during those really cold days where you don't really want to wear a beanie. The ribbed hem, cuff, and collar all help to lock in heat while adding an extra touch of comfort to the fit of the jacket.

Casual & Warm

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

Lots of things to love! The hood is deep and warm. I like how it is attached to the outside of the collar, and is removable. The pocket placement is nice, and flattering. Its quite fitted at the waist, but has quite a bit of ease through the shoulders and bust. The color is a bright grey, slightly lighter than pictured. I do wish that that the hardwear was a little sturdier feeling and I found it odd that the leather details were brown (which doesn't really match the coat)
Overall, quite warm, and a good value choice for casual use.

Stylish and warm

I haven’t owned this jacket very long, but received it the week before a snow storm; so far so good , it’s kept me warm and comfortable in cold temps. I feel it runs a little large, but am happy with a looser fit and have been able to wear it over my vest comfortably. The Black is more of a dull black, which I like. I was worried about where the jacket would sit since I’m on the shorter side, but feel the length is perfect. So far I’ve been happy with the quality and am glad I purchased!

Love this piece!

I saw the other review and needed to share my experience with this jacket. Yes, I am the rep, but when something is so good and gets a poor review, I do like to be sure to share my experience if I love it.

The Placid Jacket has such a cool bomber styling to it, with rib cuffs and hem, and a detachable hood. I love love love the zippers - they give it a casual styling and work well. The leather hits on the jacket add to that lifestyle feel, and the jacket is executed very well. The quality is 100%, and if thee was any problem, OR would be sure to take care of me. But having worn this jacket every week of the winter for 2 winters now, I have had ZERO problems.

The only thing about this jacket is that I wish it came in more colors. But overall, OR has done an excellent job with this jacket.

Made in China Cheap

Was disappointed when this arrived based on the pictured product. In person this jacket looks cheap; flimsy hardware, poor leather touches, and faded material. Only positive was the down seemed even and smoothly placed. Wish the rest of the jacket was as sleek.
