Outdoor ResearchVerismo Hooded Down Jacket - Men's

Best worn when cold.

Climbs feel best when the rock is cold, snow is only around to ski when it's cold, and the Outdoor Research Men's Verismo Hooded Down Jacket feels best when it's cold. This puffy's down adds warmth worthy for shoulder season climbs and winter ski days. Pertex Quantum fabric wraps over the insulation to resist light precipitation and brisk breezes. The whole jacket stuffs into its chest pocket for compact convenience if you get too warm while skiing, or only want the jacket when you're belaying on long multi-pitches.

  • Lightweight puffy for anywhere cold
  • Down insulation adds light warmth without heavy weight
  • Pertex Quantum shell is water- and wind-resistant
  • Adjustable hood and hem seal in warmth
  • Left hand pocket doubles as stuff sack

Great Gift

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
  • Size Bought: Large

I got this as a gift for a family member. They use this jacket as an insulating layer for snowboarding or to get around in the cold. It fits nicely under a jacket but can also stand alone. The narrow baffles make the jacket less bulky. Two zippered hand pockets, a zippered chest pocket and 2 Shove-it pockets! Also the adjustable hood is a great feature. Easy gift!

Great fit! Not just another down jacket!

  • Fit: True to size

Was very impressed at the flattering fit of this jacket at the $200 price point. Seems most jackets in this price range are a little boxy and not very technical. I think in this price range this is one of the more impressive down jackets you can pick up.

Perfect for skinny guys

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

This jacket fits like a glove.

Favorite Lightweight Down

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

I'm 6'0", broad, and 165lbs, Medium fits perfect. It is thin, but the 650 down is incredibly warm and if you get too warm you can take it off, stuff it into the side pocket, and clip to your belt to keep hiking/climbing. Since I got the jacket I've worn it non-stop, from going to work to a midlayer for ski touring to winter hikes, it is great for all around use and looks good! There is some down that leaks while it settles, but that is natural with most down jackets. After a few uses it does not anymore. I've worn it in light rain as well and it does not get wet, holds up great in the wind too. Definitely recommend!

Cant stop wearing it.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Small

I originally got this as a mid layer for skiing and it works perfect for that. The Pertex Quantum does a fantastic job keeping the down dry as well. I have ended up wearing this on a daily basis as it is super comfortable and lightweight. The fit is pretty good a little tight in the armpits but does not bother me at all. Fully satisfied with the purchase

Hey Ryan - stoked you love this piece - It's one I haven't gotten yet but absolutely plan to. So light, great layering jacket!

Enjoy!

INTERNAL POCKET DETAIL

Great internal pockets on BOTH sides of this jacket!



They are very deep and can fit many things.



I personally enjoy using the pocket for carrying a portable battery charger for my phone.



Since the pockets are inside of the jacket, everything is nice and secure!

CHEST POCKET DETAIL

I personally use the chest pocket to keep emergency funds in it. You never know when a couple bucks in your adventure jacket will come in handy.

LONG STORY SHORT



This is a very versatile Down jacket. Packs down really nicely and has a great design!

It is that perfect balance of design and function!



I personally would give a shout out to the size of the pockets as well.

QUALITY



This is a great quality jacket that also has great water repelling (DWR)



I have spilled some hiking coffee onto this jacket and it was just fine!



You will notice some down feathers start to stick out of the seams, but if you are familiar with down jackets, this should not be too big of an issue.



Honestly for me the quality does out way the pricing point.

I have seen some down jackets that leak down worse than this jacket does, and those jackets were priced at a much higher point!

FIT

------

I have always enjoyed the fit of Outdoor Research when I have tried on their jackets.



This is a 'TRIM' fit so it does hug you in just the right way.



I have not worn this jacket with thick sweatshirts or anything, but if you were looking to use this in colder conditions, you may want a size up so that you would not feel to squished in your jacket.



But overall, I have had no issue with the fit of this jacket.



Easy to move in and comfortable if I had to sum it up.

------

FUNCTION



This is one of those jackets that surprised me with their

deep internal pockets. I personally liked using the internal pockets for my portable battery.



Since this jacket hugs the body, it was nice to know that my portable battery and my phone were secure.



I also really enjoyed the hood of this jacket.



You have those nifty adjustment cords, so you should be able to get a nice customer fit around any hat you wear.



The chest pocket is a perfect size as well, and has a nice strong zipper.









Great Jacket at a Great Price!

Excellent review and photo - Thank you!
