Super trim fit, but good for what it is (Review by Sam)

I really wanted a softshell lined with fleece for winter skiing on days without precipitation in New England and Virginia (yes...Virginia), but the really slim cut means you can't layer much underneath. I'm 6'3" and 175 lbs with a slim build and I felt really restricted with a Better Sweater under this thing, which is my go-to layer on cold/sunny days. I typically wear a medium, and that's the Lodestar size I purchased...definitely snug on a 38" chest and the armpits are really tight, though the arm length is just fine (more than adequate).

I love the materials, particularly the high-loft fleecey lining and the Polartec softshell in the shoulders/sleeves, and would have kept it around if it were just a bit bigger in the midsection. I ended up returning the Lodestar and going with the Havoc, which is less of a shell and more of an insulator, but has a more generous cut for being a medium. I'd say the Lodestar would be fine for 32* bluebird days, but for anything colder that demanded more layering you'd want a size up from normal.

Men's Lodestar Jacket (Review by By Mark Allen)

Testing this peice as anOR Alpine Ambassador am excited about the potential this Jacket has for my upcoming winter in San Juans Colorado and spring as I return to the Alaska Range. I was able to test this Jacket on some alpine ice guiding in the Cascades while guiding on Rainier during a storm. The temps where below freezing (10-20F) while guiding the Kautz Glacier Route. I was able to dump heat well while super active during the pitch and retain my heat during the belay while my clients followed. Also I will be defiantly taking this layer again to Logan 2013. This is a great cold weather expedition action suit when it hits the fan in the Yukon. The breathability of the Polartec Power Shield and synch hood certainly was fantastic piece to endure the storm but dump heat while digging to protect camp.I see this as a great go to jacket for Waterfall Ice climbing on a cold day or moderate cold day allowing you step down in the puff weight you carry or dump it all together.Also I'm excited to use it on cold ski tours (-10F -10F) and not be switching jackets at all for the down.Finally a newer fabric that is holding well thus far. Its built to last by using Polartec Power Shield Pro to give you durable protection. I recommend this piece and a great new addition to the OR alpine line.
