Where hoodie meets fleece.

This fall when you're bagging some of Utah's National Parks, you might be surprised by how chilly a desert can get. Whether you're hiking out to Delicate Arch or just cruising around the park in your car, the Women's Outdoor Research Shiftup Fleece Jacket will put you in a good mood. Lightweight stretch fabric matches your movements as you scramble about on the Navajo sandstone, and during early morning trail runs you can stay cozy with a balaclava-style hood and thumbloops. Breathable and naturally odor-resistant, you'll return to your family post-jog ready to wear your fleece hoodie for the rest of the day.

  • Lightweight fleece for casual wear or camping
  • Movement-mirroring stretch designed for mobility on the trail
  • Warm, soft construction is odor resistant for long hikes

Cozy from couch to trail

If you're looking for a multipurpose fleece, consider the Shiftup. It's light and stretchy enough for a run. It's warm enough for early morning hikes. It's cute enough for meeting up with friends for lunch. It's soft enough for curling up on the sofa and binge-watching Netflix. I usually wear a XS or S in Outdoor Research but got the Shiftup in a medium, because I like my pullovers to be a bit loose.

Comfy, breathable, warm, doesn’t smell!

I have used this hoody extensively for the past three weeks and it has gone running with me, chopping and stacking wood, hiking, and pre and apres gym workouts. This hoody has really earned my affection. It’s warm yet relatively light weight. It barely had an odor to it after four full days of use without washing (normally I would wash a technical piece after one or two times of use, but this just doesn’t take on the odor like other technical fabrics are notorious for.
I will be using it for skiing this winter as a midlayer for sure.
Great hoody, very versatile, I highly recommend it!
For fit reference, I am 5’ 7”, 145 lbs, athletic build and I got a medium and it fits just right.

Awesome Multi-Purpose Hoody

This hoody has become my "go-to" piece for chilly autumn weather. I've worn it over yoga clothes (to, from and even in the studio), while bike riding (the hood zips up tight enough to fit under a helmet), while hiking in the mountains, while walking my dog, in a chilly movie theater and even in the office. It fits great and is flattering. The arms are a good length, and the thumb holes are in the right spot. The front pocket is handy and big enough for a pair of gloves, and there's a small pocket inside the big pocket, which I haven't used yet, but I'm sure that I will. It's casual, yet technical. Love it!
