This jacket's construction dumps excess heat when you're on the move, but holds in the heat during downtime.

Customer Reviews

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.
