Vey Happy (Review by Davis28)

I bought this Jacket 3 years ago and still love using it to this day! Living in Canada, you can see a few chilly days a year and this jacket is nothing short of keeping me warm. I really like how light the face fabric is and the pertex endurance is more sustainable then I thought! Great winter camping jacket! but I mostly use it in the city to get groceries down the street or walk the dog.

Not as duarble as I would like (Review by Julia)

I have had this jacket for about 16 months and have worn it through most of 2 Minnesota winters. It is warm and the cut allows for ample layering. I have loved the hood. It really helps keep the wind out. My only complaint is that the material and the zipper have not held up well. The outer material has been ripped 3 or 4 times by my dogs' toe nails while we are playing. I have patched the jacket with fabric tape. Now, the zipper has become nearly useless as it busts apart at the bottom after I zip it up. I thought I'd get a little more wear out of this one, but for next year I will need to find something a little tougher to stand up to my level of activity.

Nothing screams cold like belaying your ice climbing partner in minus degree temps. The Virtuoso is my favorite belay jacket...keeps me warm, fits over my layers without feeling bulky, protects from the wind, is highly water resistant and rugged (hey, it hangs out with sharp, pointy objects!) I love that it compresses into itself (pocket) and that it is ready and willing to go anywhere with me!

I usually wear W's Smalls, but I ordered this one in a Medium to fit over everything while I'm climbing. I use this jacket as a belay parka ice climbing in New England. It is toasty warm and I love everything about it!

Women's Virtuoso Hoody™ (Review by By Lilla)

The Virtuoso has proven itself as a versatile jacket for keeping the Canadian bacon warm on different winter adventures. It was a toasty warm treat to pull out of the pack at ridge-top after several hours of knee deep trail breaking and also a lifesaver at belays while ice climbing in the bitter cold Canadian Rockies. It compresses so well and is light weight, there is no reason to leave home without it.

A mid-weight down jacket that boasts one of the best colour combinations out there (Turquoise/Peacock). I use this as a belay jacket on colder days when ice, mixed, or alpine climbing. The hood fits well over a helmet, and the double zipper allows easy access to your harness. On cold days you can leave it long and cover your hips, on warmer days you can cinch up the waistcord and sport the "bomber jacket" look.

Women's Virtuoso Hoody™ (Review by By KPV)

, 650-fill down toaster quickly became my best friend for mountain climbs on Shasta, Adams, and the high Sierras, for overnight backcountry trips on the PCT, and during one especially chilly coastal hike on Damnation Creek. Never did it fail to wrap me in much needed warmth and super stylish comfort. The body shell fabric is a totally windproof and highly breathable 20-denier ripstop polyester, and the Pertex Endurance on the shoulders and sleeves is surprisingly water-resistant. On misty and drizzly days, water beaded right off so there was no need to stop and add a shell. I'm a cold sleeper and loved wearing it to bed on many nights or sometimes stuffed it into its own hand warmer pocket (there are two) instead to make it an excellent camp pillow. The fully-insulated hood is among the best I've seen; it's helmet compatible but has both side and back adjustments that cinch it down snug over a cap. The fit is generous enough to accommodate layers underneath yet still showed off my feminine curvature

The shell, with windroof polyester in the torso and highly water-resistant Endurance on the sleeves, handled everything the Sierra Nevada threw at me.This jacket is very versitile and highly adjustable. This is my go to warm active jacket. Thank you OR for making my favorite coat... The Virtuoso!

Women's Virtuoso Hoody™ (Review by By Seamstress)

I have not been able to part with it. Without understanding precisely the specifications I needed, I bought this jacket as soon as it became available. It won't be quite right for the extreme cold of my upcoming adventure and I didn't get the color I really wanted (blue wasn't available yet). Once I wore it, it became my cold weather favorite. It is weightless,warm, and allows for movement. The longer length is great for keeping the core toasty. It packs down very small.

Women's Virtuoso Hoody™ (Review by By Jenny)

I took this jacket up Mt. Rainier and was so glad I had it. It's the perfect jacket to throw on while taking a break or hanging out on the summit. It compresses down pretty small which made this a natural choice when choosing a down jacket for my climbing kit. I've normally used the Aria hoody, but didn't think it was warm enough for a climb like Rainier. This jacket is a nice step up from the Aria in warmth - I highly recommend this product.
