Outdoor Research Winter Deadpoint Jacket - Men's

Mountain man style.

That wood's not going to chop and stack itself, so snap up the Outdoor Research Winter Deadpoint Men's Jacket, sharpen your axe, and get to swingin'. The cotton and spandex fabric serves up enough durability for heavy-duty use and enough stretch for unrestricted chopping, while the soft organic cotton plaid lining fights off the October chill so you can lay in enough straight-grained ash to keep your cabin suitably warm and smoky until the spring thaw.

Nice jacket

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs large
  • Size Bought: Large

I am a 42R jacket usually. Large fits me on the large size with long sleeves. Still it's not bad because it gives me the option to wear a sweater underneath. Quality is very good. Love the flannel liner.

On the negative side: the conventional buttons are a pain. Wish they had included pop buttons or even a zipper with pop buttons.

Gift for dad

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
  • Fit: True to size

This was a gift for Dad. The Deadpoint Jacket has that old-time look that he really enjoys and avoids the poof of so many down jackets. The cozy fleece liner works very well on mild to moderate winter days, and provides some protection from the wind. With his injured right shoulder, the button front makes one-hand fastening easier than with a zipper. Timeless look and warmth!

good mid-weight jacket

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

Warmer than I expected it to be. Sleeves might be a little long on the XL but overall fit is great. Looks great as well.

Great jacket, wish it had a zipper

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

This jacket is great! I'm a pretty slim guy, and it fits great. Not too tight though, which is nice because then I can wear a sweatshirt under it for when it gets to be sub-40 degrees F. As is though, I'm comfortable in just the jacket from up to mid-50s down to 40 degrees F. The flannel lining covers not just the body, but the sleeves too and the pockets, which is a nice touch. The 2% spandex means that the jacket has just a little bit of stretch in it - just a tiny amount, just enough to make the jacket feel nonrestrictive where other jackets feel a bit tight. It's machine washable too, which is convenient. I also like how it has minimal branding, just an OR logo on the back side of the shoulder, about the size of a quarter, and in the same tone as the jacket. My only lament with this jacket is that has buttons instead of a zipper, which I would strongly prefer.

Great feedback, David! I will pass it on to the designers at OR.

Enjoy!

is this really the WINTER deadpoint jacket? the photo makes it look like there isn't any sort of lining for warmth. appears to be more of a spring piece.

Tony,



It is the Winter Deadpoint-- we've got the regular Deadpoint photos up. We'll have that fixed here soon-- thanks for the heads up.



Feel free to give me a call if you need help placing an order!

Hey Tony and Lara, actually this is the Winter Deadbolt Jacket that is shown. The regular Deadbolt Jacket is unlined, and this one has a plaid flannel lining, shown here in the picture. If we are getting literal, then we should call it the Fall Deadpoint Jacket, because it really is good for lifestyle cool temperatures, not sub 20 degrees. Hope that makes sense. Really, a nice, cozy lifestyle piece, but not buit for the dead of winter!

Hope that helps!

Rugged and classic like the PNW

OR hails from the Pacific Northwest and you can see that in their design. This jacket is equally at home working out behind your cabin as it is on a stool at your favorite pub. My friend says it reminds her of a rugged Northweat Gentleman. I like the close to torso fit that gives it a classic look, the stretch of the fabric which prevents it from feeling constrictive and allowing free motion when loading gear. Here's a photo of me sharpening a pencil on a crisp fall day on Friday Harbor just outside of Seattle wearing my deadpoint jacket.

Fantastic photo! Thank you for writing, Xander. This is a great jacket, and I only wish they would do something like this with women's styling too! This is a classic man's jacket, and on top, the fit and stretch are fantastic.

Thanks for writing!
