- Pills badly (Review by Earl)
I've had a variety of OR fleeces and this one was not as quality as I was expecting. After about a month of wear it has pilled badly on every point of the jacket but especially on the ends of sleeves and the waist. Besides a few pitches of climbing, it has only seen casual wear. I like the stretch, warmth and 1/4 zip but the thing is falling apart badly.

- My favorite OR piece (Review by captainEJ)
I've had this only about a year but judging by the number of campfire holes in it I can say that its been well loved. Equally useful around town, backpacking, or skiing this is a versatile piece. I had the competitions version of this (Patagucci R1) but I can honestly say this is at least as good. I wear this fishing a ton in the summer in Alaska under a rain jacket and then I use it all winter skiing. I vote pro hood but some people don't like the hood especially under a ski jacket. I've got used to it and find it great and more versatile with the hood. It doesn't have the grid fleece like some but I don't find myself missing it. I went for the large and it fits about perfect for my 6' 4'' frame.

- Awesome! (Review by Ian)
I love the soft, stretchy material of this hoody. I am 6' 200lbs and got the large. It fits exactly as I wanted it to, a little snug. I typically wear it over a thin t-shirt and under a shell. No problems with the zippers getting caught for me.

- Great Technical Layer! (Review by evanbooher)
Recently took this garment on two day tours in the Tetons under very different conditions. Performed well underneath a shell in wet, cold, and snow - providing good insulation in a situation with inevitable wetness. This past weekend headed up with spring-like warmth and sun and the piece was perfect over a single poly-pro t-shirt - both on the climb and descent.
I'm 6' 170 lbs and the Large fits perfectly. Highly recommended!

- Radiant HD Half-Zip Hoody (Review by Andy)
What a great hoody! The Radiant HD material is warm, soft, and articulates well to your body movement. I am 5'11" 185 lbs and I feel the Large fits me perfectly. I can fit into a Medium, but it's a bit constrictive due to its designed trim fit. It has a sporty look to it that pairs well with everything from running pants to jeans or khakis. The size of the hood is nice, not bulky or blinding---fits snugly around the head providing plenty of coverage while preserving your peripheral. To each their own, but I went with the black for versatility. I have a closet full of mid-layers and fleece insulators from all the usual competitors, but the OR Radiant HD Half-Zip Hoody is the one I reach for the most as a stand-alone layer when temps range from the 30s to 50s.

- Great Layer with on trivial flaw (Review by AJ)
What a great mid layer. The material reminds m of Polartec Powerstretch which I have used before. The cut is awesome and i really appreciate the longer tail and the slight brim on the articulated hood. I do have one problem with it however, the zipper pulls. The zipper pulls are extremely coarse and get caught on the very fine fleece material. When they get caught, they put very small pulls in the material. Not a huge deal, but for the price I would like to see a different design. I ended up sanding them down and then melting the zipper pulls to remedy the problem.

- Warm! (Review by George)
Been using this hoody in the low 40s in the Pacific Northwest. Keeps me warm as long as its not raining! I'm sure it would do great as a baselayer but I haven't needed a shell yet.
