Women's Incandescent Hoody™

Style# 97505OR

Perfect insurance for epic alpine ascents, winter camping and long ski tours under cold, clear skies, the incredibly light weight of the Incandescent Hoody belies its oven-like warmth. Zip into the high-loft 800+ fill down insulation, and hunker down in comfort when the temperature drops, then pack the whole thing away into its built-in stuff sack pocket when you lace up your boots and start working up a sweat. The DWR finish fends off light precipitation if you're caught in an unexpected high-mountain squall.

Light, warm (Review by Alison)

I love this jacket. Super light, packs down small, but extremely warm. It has a backing behind the zipper that keeps the thin material from getting caught in the zipper, which is a nice touch. Could be a wee bit longer, but this is my favorite jacket for cold days. And it is so light that throwing it in the pack is a no-brainer.

Warmest Down Jacket for the Weight! (Review by alpinerodeo)

The Incandescent is a must for anyone who loves the outdoors when it’s cold but doesn’t want to actually be cold. I use this mostly for cold alpine rock and mixed climbing with the odd backcountry ski session thrown in, but especially when snow camping is involved. This was my only down jacket for 6 weeks in the mountains of Chamonix, France, and I couldn’t have been happier with my decision. For its weight, it’s so warm! I used to have the OR Refuge years back, which at the time was one of the warmest down jackets around. I think this one has it beat!

Other great features: the hood fits great over my climbing helmet, I really like the chest zip pocket, it stuffs into itself making for a nice pillow, and despite its warmth it still looks good — not at all bulky! Oh, and the drawstring hem allows you to shorten it a bit so it doesn’t compete with my harness. It’s a super quality jacket.

So warm! (Review by alpinerodeo)

The Incandescent Hoody is the warmest jacket I've owned. It's great for fall belays and throwing on over my shell when transitioning my skins for a backcountry ski! In fact, I've gotten so comfortable in this jacket that I've started wearing it around town even before it drops below freezing! It's stylish, light, and when stuffed makes for a perfect travel pillow. I have it in desert sunrise/mulberry, which really stands out. It looks more like pink/fuchsia, but is still trendy--I get compliments on it all the time.
