Men's Centrifuge Jacket™

Style# 56125OR

Built for highly aerobic alpine activities, the Centrifuge Jacket features wind- and weather-resistant hard-faced fleece on the chest and front torso, but highly air-permeable Radiant LT Fleece™ on the back, side, underarms and face panel. This combination of fabrics allows the Centrifuge to protect from inclement weather while remaining ultra-breathable. Also featuring an alpine cut and a close-fitting balaclava-style hood, the Centrifuge is the ideal layer for traveling fast and light in less-than-ideal conditions.

Best mid alpine layer ever (Review by Matt)
Quality

I never go anywhere without this jacket. I bought a second one because I couldn't keep the first one clean I was wearing it so much. It's the perfect mix of breathable with a touch of warmth that blocks just enough wind and light snow/precip to be comfortable while doing heavy exertion in the mountains. It gets used regularly for backcountry skiing, ice climbing, mountaineering, trail runs and alpine climbing. Only one complaint after a couple seasons of abuse is the zipper is a little small, making it a little difficult to grab with gloved hands.

Men's Centrifuge Jacket (Review by By chugach ress)

I use this all the time for alpine touring, back country skiing, cross country skiing, pretty much any cold-weather aerobic activity. The windproof front and breathable, lighter back fabric work perfectly in tandem to provide the most comfort during forward moving activities in the cold. It is my go-to jacket.

Men's Centrifuge Jacket (Review by By Skiing Utah)

I bought this jacket as an outer layer for xc skiing. Light weight nylon shells don't breathe well enough and the lightest soft shells are to cold if there is any breeze; heavier soft shells are way to warm. At 15F with only a single Craft base layer underneath, I was near perfect. Mobility is fantastic! When the sun came out though, I would have liked to have been able to up zip a two way zipper or unzip some pit zips for added venelation. After my xc workout, I hung out and skied with my daughter and really appreciated the form fit hood for added warmth to fend off the sweaty chill. I also appreciated the offset zipper and different fabric in front of the face on the collar, very nice touch!

Men's Centrifuge Jacket (Review by By Jonathon Spitzer)

I've used this hoody about 25 days now in the field. I really like it for ski touring. Works great as a breathable layer for the uphill and then keeps me warm for the downhill as well. I've also been using this jacket while cragging and mountaineering. I did a Rainier climb in April and wore this layer the whole time. I wish the zipper pulls were bigger as they are hard to un-zip with gloves on. Overall I really like this layer and plan on using it on many climbs and trips to come!

Men's Centrifuge Jacket (Review by By Idaho Steve)

I bought this mainly for ski touring but I used it for running in cold, windy weather several times first. It worked great for that. I like the long sleeves with thumbholes that eliminate the cold gap at the wrist. The first time I wore it ski touring was a super windy and snowy day. I wore it over just a medium weight base layer and was just right temperature-wise. Again, love the thumbholes. The back fabric breathed great, I had no sweat issues. I have two nits: First, the zipper pulls are exceedingly tiny. There's almost no way to grab them with normal weight ski gloves. Second, the hood is a little too small. I wanted the protection of the hood without the extra weight of an additional beanie, but the hood is too short at the forehead. I felt like I'd just shoveled down an ice cream cone. Still, kudos to OR on the hood. That feature was my deciding factor in choosing this piece over a similar jacket from another manufacturer. One more kudos for the pocket construction. I can fold my skins and tuck them behind the pocket fabric for the down. Nice.
