Men's Transfer Jacket™

Style# 56173OR

There is a transfer of energy and focus when transitioning from ascent to descent, forest to above tree-line, from exhilarating, thigh-burning speed to a pause in the action. As much happens during the in-between as it does during the events before and after. The Transfer Jacket was designed for all these moments. Breathable, stretch-woven fabric provides protection from the elements, and a soft fleece interior provides light insulation ideal for warmer backcountry days, skate skiing and shoulder season activities.

Customer Reviews

Better than my North Face Apex (Review by Jackalope)

I purchased this jacket to replace a worn out North Face Apex jacket that had served me well for about 10 years. I like the cut and fit. It offers exceptional protection from rain, wind and cold. One nice surprise was the small stitched opening in the chest pocket where I can run my headphones through so I don't have the cords dangling on the outside of the jacket where they always seem to get snagged. The side pockets are of a decent size, but there is also a mesh pocket on the interior front side of the jacket where you can stash larger items. This is a great little bonus as I use it to store my Nexus 7 tablet. So far, I'm liking the OR Transfer much more than my old TNF Apex. I just hope it lasts me as long.

Perfect Everyday Jacket (Review by Chad)

I purchased this jacket to replace an aging Costco jacket I purchased a couple years back, and since receiving it, I've rarely taken it off. It fits perfectly (I'm 5'6" and 140 pounds, purchased the small jacket), and is comfortable inside and out, and even on seven hour long trips behind the wheel of my car. The Napoleon pocket is even large enough to fit my Galaxy Note 4, if only just.

Amazing Jacket (Review by Erik)

Great jacket for fall days in to early winter. Fleece lined. Never feel the wind blowing. Stylish enough to wear around town and tough enough to wear for outdoor trips

Men's Transfer Jacket™ (Review by By Skiattack)

I have used this product on spring days backcountry skiing when the forecast is good. It is a great layer to wear all day long. I usually don't take it off unless things really heat up. I like to wear this layer rock climbing as well. It protects from wind, its breathable, and can take a beating. It also looks good around town.

Men's Transfer Jacket™ (Review by By Levie)

This jacket is a real bargain and I find myself wearing it more than any of my other jackets. Thats probably due to the mild weather where I live but I rarely find myself overheating in it. I can wear the jacket when its 30 degrees outside and then come inside and I do not have to take it off. The zipper pull on this jacket is not as stiff as my other OR jackets either which can be a pain when your hands are full. The zippers on the pockets are nice to secure gear on the move and they are fleece lined as well so they actually provide warmth. I have worn this jacket in snow flurries to light rain and I have not had a drop of moisture penetrate the soft shell material. I like the fit of the jacket but if you wear long sleeves underneath special effort will need to be made so they do not bunch. I am in between sizes at either a Med or Large depending upon the standard or athletic fit of the jacket. I am 5'9" 177lbs with semi broad shoulders so I went with the large. At first, I thought the sleeves were too long but I adjust the nice velcro adjustments on the wrist and I now prefer the length. With the longer sleeves I can reach without losing warmth to the sleeves going up my arm.
