My new favorite jacket (Review by Jbosch5)

I have worn this jacket as a mid layer skiing in very cold weather, AT day trips hiking steap pitches and walking the dog on cold and drizzly days in the NW. It's perfect on all fronts. I am 6'2" and 210 lbs. Large shoulders and chest and XL is great for me.

Great jacket, too tight in the shoulders (Review by Dean)

I really like this jacket, but the fit in the shoulders just isn't right. I'm 6'0", 175 lbs. A medium fits great in the length. I have long arms and even the sleeves are long enough. It's just too tight in the shoulders. I couldn't imaging trying any rock climbing with this. Warmth is great, the cuffs don't bunch up, so it is really a great jacket, but the shoulder fit is a problem.

Love everything, but... (Review by TaoofPu)

This is an awesome jacket in color, trim fit through the torso, warmth, zipper quality, pocket design, torso length, and even thumb loops (I mean, really, what a simple thing that makes it so much easier to throw a shell over the top). Unfortunately, I had to return it for the same reason as several other reviewers: it cuts a bit under the armpits. I'm by no means a big guy (5'8", 155 lbs, 36" chest... maybe a slightly rounding stomach from too many post hike brews, but I digress), so the trim fit is perfect, except for the tightness under the arms in forward arm extension. I own several other small sized pieces from OR and haven't had issues, but maybe it's part of all their trim fit pieces. I'm going to try out the Uberlayer and see if I have the same problem.

Highly recommend this jacket, if the fit works for you. As always, keep being awesome OR.

Nice Coat, poor fit (Review by Gibson)

I want to really like this coat bit the fit is off for me. It is too tight around the chest and shoulders. I can wear it under a shell skiing (the purpose I got it for) and do not notice the fit, so it is not too bad, but I choose not to wear it by itself because of how the fit looks and feels. I bought a medium (which fits perfectly with other OR coats) and am 6'1", 178lbs with a 41" chest. The rest of the coat fits well, arms long enough, roomy enough in the lower body without being baggy, long enough for coverage. With the tight shoulders, the whole coats lifts way up when I raise my arms over my head which is a problem.
The coat is warmer than I expected (in a good way) and does breath well. When skiing hard and working up a sweat, I have no issues with feeling damp. Packs down fairly well, but not as small as a down puffy.
The coat works well for the main reason I bought it but the poor fit prevents me from enjoying it. I certainly recommend trying it on before buying. If it fits you, it will be a great asset, if not you may be happier with other coats.

too tight under the armpits (Review by DR)

Seems like a good jacket, and it fits well on my torso, but way too tight under the armpits. All my other Outdoor Research shirts and jackets fit well in the small, except this one. So I'm going to have to return it. If I were to go up to the medium, it'd be too loose in the torso. Perhaps I'll give the Havoc a try-- seems like it might be a better fit based on the photos.

Great, versatile jacket (Review by Tim)

I bought this jacket to hike Mount Whitney in September. I've experienced temps ranging from 80 degrees all the way down to about 15 degrees on that mountain this time of year, so I wanted a jacket that would be able to handle a wide variety of temps. The superlayer jacket worked very well. I started the hike in the morning with it on and felt great up through sunrise and a few hours beyond until the temps really started rising. The jacket fits well, not too big, not too small. I'm 5'8" 175, muscular/athletic build and bought a large. An XL would have given more room for multiple layers underneath, and a medium wouldn't have fit me. So the large was perfect.
