Climbing the ranks.

Long after the tourists have left and the scorching heat has faded into a cool fall breeze, the southern desert becomes a haven for climbing bums. When heading from one route to another, the Outdoor Research Men’s Winter Ferrosi Hooded Jacket does an impeccable job of offering shelter in the wind, rain, and cold.

OR’s synthetic Thermore insulation sits under a tough windbreaking and water-resistant shell. And with added spandex, it offers a stretch that climbers depend on in Indian Creek and Wall Street.

  • An insulated jacket made with extra stretch for outdoorsmen
  • Water-resistant and windbreaking shell provides tough outer layer
  • Synthetic insulation offers lightweight warmth
  • Ripstop construction helps to keep the jacket from tearing
  • Hood and hem adjusts for ideal temperature and comfort
  • Zippered pockets provide safe places for essentials

everything and more

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

I bought the discontinued color from another supplier as Backcountry was out of my size.
This is a fabulous jacket. That said. I am a jacket freak. First time out it was 41 degrees F and cloudy. Went for a short 4 mile hike and I was very impressed. Just a wicking t-shirt underneath. It breathes incredibly well. No you can’t wear this alone under 25 degrees just hiking. It might be a good runners or climbers jacket at that temp. I have a feeling that it will be a great layering jacket. The chest runs on the small side. Sleeves are excellent length. The collar keeps out wind and zips to you chin. Hood is also warm. I bought a L and I am 5-11 175 lbs. fits well on 69 year old. You will definitely want to size up if you are muscular or husky.

Excellent jacket!

    Its surprisingly warm, light weight and fits perfectly. It is definitely a good buy! I even tried in a rain to see if it was really insulated and water-resistant, the results: PASS. I recommend the jacket.

    Holy Moly

    Yeah, this jacket makes a ton of sense. Great construction, fits under a shell but warm enough to wear on its on. I've logged a number of days with it both when I tele and alpine and wore only a dry wick t-shirt underneath. It's athletically cut however if you have shoulders you'll find it just a little bit snug.

    Thank you for the review, Marts!

    Good fit

    Ordered a large, 6’ 205lbs, fits great. Picture is misleading as to the color pewter is more of a light grey, but still looks good.

    Thank you Corey!

    Did not like, disproportionate

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: M

    I did not like this jacket. I had very high hopes but the chest was very tight and the arms huge. I also was very disappointed that the jacket had very little stretch and torso was short and sleeves without a good seal to keep out the cold. Jacket was also very heavy for warmth ratio.

    Hey there Louis, you may want to consider the Ascendant or the Deviator from OR. This is designed more as an around town piece, while they others are great for activity and movement.

    Thank you for the review,

    Excellent lightweight jacket. Surprisingly warm for its weight. I mainly use it as an around town jacket, though I have spotted it on backcountry skiers. Excellent quality. I highly recommend it.

    Thank you Raymond!

    Finally, a warm mid-layer w/o the bulk

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Just the mid-layer I’ve been looking for. Fleece thick and down warm. Wear it by itself but mostly as a mid-layer. Fit is perfect. Not bulky at all. My large fits and wears well under a Swedish made windshell, also a large, and you know the Swedes don’t do vanity sizing. Nice clean, modern fit. Highly recommended.

    Great review, Marvin! Thank you!
