Radiant warmth for cold and demanding adventures.
Whether you're working your way up a technical alpine route, laying the hammer down on a steep skin track, or just sipping your morning coffee, the Outdoor Research Women's Radiant Hybrid Jacket will be your go-to layer when you need warmth and breathability. Radiant fleece fabric is both breathable and quick drying, making it an ideal midlayer in high and demanding conditions. Polygiene active odor control prevents any funky odors from running amok on long expeditions, and its thumbholes help to keep the sleeves in place when worn under a shell.

Exactly what I wanted!

This powerstretch fleece is a close-fitting, flattering top. Outdoor research can be depended on for outdoor gear and this promises to be a very warm layer when I actually reach my frigid sub-zero vacation destination. I will be wearing this as a base under a windproof down jacket.
Lackluster, expected more

I love OR apparel/gear but recently, it seems the best items I have are from years ago. For example, I have a hybrid (fleece/other tech material) jacket from OR that I got about 5 years ago. It's my go-to for winter trail runs - it has zip pockets, a hood, wicks but is warm, and is nicely fitted. I got this one (Radiant Hybrid) thinking I could use the alternative without a hood (plus my older jacket is now grungy but still functional). I am returning it because it's basically "blah." The fit is shapeless and too large (shape is important less for vanity and more for functionality - don't want stuff flapping around/loose, etc.); the materials seem to be of lesser quality than the other hybrid I have; it's hardly warm (basically did nothing for me when I tried it on); and one tiny chest pocket ain't gonna help (where to put keys, maps, extra gloves, snacks ...). (Note: the men's version has a hood, which would've given this women's version at least something value-added.) At the sale price, it's probably a decent value, though, and I know/read it works well for others.
really pretty pink-purple color

The color of this jacket is really pretty - a bit blue, a bit purple - like raspberry. Really fun to wear and matches so much other stuff. (The color on the website is more accurate than the photo I posted.)
It fits like a glove. I'd probably call it a sweater more than a jacket because it doesn't have any hand pockets - only one chest pocket. It's not very thick so better for warmer days or as a lighter layer.
It's got thumb loops which I like and the arms are long enough that you can use them without pulling. In terms of length it hits right at about waist level.
Soft and fits exactly.
