This lightweight shell with all-season features provides solid protection when a downpour sets in for the long haul. Waterproof and extremely breathable GORE-TEX® fabric shrugs off the wear-and-tear of the trail, while TorsoFlo™ side zippers allow poncho-style ventilation when body heat needs to escape. Feature rich, this jacket works as hard as you do, but packs down tight once the weather breaks.

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.
