Great Travel Jacket (Review by LuvOutdoors)
Quality

This is a jacket I feel compelled to write a review on -- it is that good!

First I need to mention the front two-way zipper. I will not buy a jacket without a front two-way zipper -- it makes it so easy to adjust the fit. It makes it so easy to go from a rain storm to the driver's seat in a vehicle without taking off the jacket. There are at least ten different reasons on why a front two-way zipper is needed, but I will spare you and just say it is needed.

I love the pit/side zipper vents -- more adjustability that is built-in.

The cuffs have half elastic and velcro -- another great feature that prevents sleeve-droop.

The pockets are huge zip pockets -- they will really get a workout from me!

Fabric-wise, you can't get any better than Gore-tex.

Hardware -- this jacket has the best!

The hood is great; one that I can just flip up if caught in a rain storm. The hood also has adjustability.

I was looking for a jacket that would pack down to nothing, both in mass and weight -- one I can travel with. This jackets packs down to practically nothing.

Size-wise, the cut is generous. I fit into a medium. I bought a large in the event I want to put some fleece layering under it.

Outdoor Research, keep up the good work with the two-way front zippers!

Suggested gear alterations (Review by AJB)
Quality

I have not used the jacket yet but I have already noted a few things I wish we're different. 1.) the elastic in the wrist is a bit much making the Velcro closure unnecessary. I,d do away with the elastic and stick with the Velcro so the cuff can be sized to any preference. 2.) I prefer the two-way zippers on the pockets. Two-way zippers make it easier to get into and out of the pockets when wearing a backpack. 3) I like the concept of the Velcro loop to fold up the hood but I think my hair will probably get stuck in the Velcro and this May get annoying. 4.) what's with the lack of an internal pocket!?

I do like the fit of the jacket with the small being quite roomy which will allow for under layers to fit nicely. The quality seems good and I am sure it will be a good jacket.

Super Versatile (Review by Sade)
Quality

I love my Aspire Jacket- it is the perfect all around jacket. It's lightweight enough that I bring it hiking/backpacking and durable enough that I use it skiing with layers underneath.
