Awesome (Review by Powboyz)

Awesome jacket. Great hood and super warm but breaths. Pit zips work with one hand. I was able to drop a layer because of the warmth. Sleeves are long for climbing but the jacket still rides up. The only problem is its not long enough to stay under a harness when you climb. 5 stars if longer. 5 ' 11" 168 and a Med fits if you like a alpine slim fit.

Excellent (Review by Alex O)

I recently received this jacket after weeks of anticipation and shipping delays caused by me not OR. I am 5' 9" 180lbs and normally wear a Medium in all things TNF. I ordered a Large in this jacket due to the trim cut and was very nervous about the size until I put it on. This jacket fits me perfectly with room for a base layer and fleece. Looks great, the color and quality of this jacket is amazing. When I put it on I was instantly warm.

My only issue is OR did not include any stickers in the shipment ;)

Next Generation (Review by Jon C)

Great job OR - I don't want to sound like a fan boy, but this is fantastic. A few years back I learned that a high-loft/softshell was a great all-round base-layer for ice climbing in the Catskills. The Lodestar takes the game to a different level with more breathability, less weight, more stretch, a monster articulated hood, great sealing cuffs, pit zips ... ok I'm sounding like a fan boy! Thanks, this jacket begs you to take it out and beat it!
