Feel the warmth, not the weight.
You may find the Outdoor Research Men's Tangent surprisingly warm for how little it weighs. That's because Hollowcore construction rids unnecessary yarns in order to reduce weight without decreasing thermal warmth. The Tangent wicks moisture and dries quickly for outdoor use, and its style craves casual occasions.

Worst fit of any OR shirt
- Size Bought: Large
Great material, great pattern, but absolutely the worst fit of any OR shirt or jacket I own. I would return it if I could. Will still buy OR items, but never this shirt again. Size large is apparently designed for someone 5'8" and 210 lbs based on the dimensions. Cheers!
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: Small
Decent quality, love the feel of the material, and seems like it will last. Got this shirt because it was on sale and I needed something warmer for the winter. Shirt fits a little snug around the shoulders but it's not uncomfortable or unusable. It's very warm and the fabric is incredibly comfortable, I like the colors. I did notice some pilling on the tail of the shirt where my school pack rubs. Other than that, very good shirt, can't say I'd have paid full price though.
Good quality, odd fit
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
- Fit: Runs small
- Size Bought: medium
The quality and style were as expected, which would have merited a much higher rating if it fit properly. It was tight through the shoulders and the tails were much shorter than usual. Though medium sizes usually fit me well, I can only guess this might have worked for someone shorter with a slim/athletic build. Backcountry was great as usual about returning it with a full refund!
