Outdoor ResearchStarfire Hooded Fleece Jacket - Men's

Surefire warmth.

When you're peeping stars from your cabin in middle of nowhere Colorado, it's imperative to layer up with a wool sweater, a steaming drink, and the Outdoor Research Men's Starfire Hooded Fleece Jacket. Whether you're due for a rendezvous at the local crag or grabbing refreshments with friends, the Starfire delivers surefire warmth. The quick-drying polyester, heathered melange knit ensures ample moisture-wicking while the Polygiene Active provides odor control should you head straight from the crag to downtown. And if that cool breeze turn into a full throttle whipping wind, the balaclava style hood and thumbholes assure a fine tuned fit, so you can keep warmth in with ease.

Zipper material shrank...

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

I have a large waive through the zipper area... that material must have shrank. Looks horrible now.

best fleece I have ever owned!

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

I got this as a birthday gift and it's awesome! Nice slimmer fit, thumb holes make it easy when layering, super lightweight, and super warm! I wore this with just a t-shirt and my 7 year old wind breaker and was super toasty in 17F degree, windy weather and was nice and comfortable!

Unanswered Question

Hi-
Is the “Dusk/Night” color of this jacket a two tone or a single color?
Thank you!

Good Light Weight Everyday Jacket

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: Large

Honestly I bought this hoodie for cooler mornings and days on my commute to work and in the office. It is definitely a slimmer fitting hoodie with not a huge amount of wiggle room. But I am definitely ok with that! I am a slimmer tall guy so it is no issue however, I could see it becoming one of you are any larger than I am. Great so far and looking to break it in nicely in the near future. Definitely a good light jacket to bee-bop around town in!

Great technical midlayer

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

It's a trim technical midweight layer but to me the fit is perfect. I can wear a baselayer and a collared shirt (around town)underneath and it feels comfortable and warm. The fabric is similar in feel/weight to what you find on the North Face Canyonlands hoodie but I like the OR cut better. Overall great cut, looks sharp and I like the fabric. Thumbs up.

Skinny Arms

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: Xl

Nice hoody only thing sleeves are tight and long .maybe not used to. Might be technical don't know!

Hey Alan, I am sorry about that. It is a Trim Fit, however, maybe the arms need to be opened up a bit? I will ask OR to look in to this.

Thank you for the review,

Bad description.....

    Wanted a jacket like the description says....ended up with a thin sweatshirt. Don't get me wrong its a nice sweatshirt but when the description Backcountry gives states "Outdoor Research Starfire Hooded Fleece Jacket - Men's " and you receive a sweatshirt it's pretty disappointing. Please fix the item description!

    Hi Kelly, I am so confused by your review. The Starfire is 100% polyester fleece, made with a smooth outer finish so that it is easy to layer on top of. A sweatshit is made of cotton, typically, and this is definitely not. The Starfire is a technical piece that has cool styling so that is can be worn casually or layered in the backcountry. The details above are spot on.

    I am sorry it wasn't what you were expecting, but it is definitely not a cotton sweatshirt.

    Description says trim fit. Tech Specs says regular fit. Which is it?

    Hey Benjamin. It's a Trim Fit. The specs above are incorrect in that way. Hope that helped!

    Surefire Starfire

    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large

    A medium weight and soft feel on the inside make this preferable to some down hoodies I own. I've worn it a few days in a row and I'll wear it a few more because I really like the hood size and the overall feel.

    Thanks for the review, Eric - I wish they had one for women! Enjoy!

    Is this hoody water repellent?

    Hey Michael - the Starfire Jacket is not water repellent, it is 100% polyester fleece. Feel free to contact me directly with any additional questions.
