- SuperUber baselayer (Review by KnaedEd)
This piece IS the baselayer I've been dreaming of for years. I wear it for Rando Racing and training. It's warm when I need it, but also not too hot. There is something weird about it though- and in reality it's me, not it- that when my body wants to/ is used to being a bit over heated and it's not, I find myself slightly cool. It's like when I first started using eVent, I was so used to be extra warm (classic GoreTex feeling) that when I wasn't, I felt cool. Of course in winter sweating (getting moisture caught) n your clothes gets you into big trouble quickly if you pause.
I'm currently 178lbs and 5.11" and the medium is quite snug. At first I wasn't sure about the hood and the very top of the zipper. However, on a day of Ice climbing I discovered the hood, while it fits fine on my bare head also stretches enough to cover my climbing helmet.
I'm online ordering another one- to have a "daily wear" piece as I love it so much AND this medium is SNUG on my no longer athletic body. Way to go OR! Thank you!

- Never leaves my pack summer thru fall (Review by Cody)
I used this as my evening camp layer for well over 6 months in the Chequamegon National forest on the Ice Age trail and I have no complaints. It helped keep mosquitos at bay, kept me warm int he early morning packing up camp, and in the evenings when it was raining and I couldnt get a fire going.
Simply put, its an all around amazing piece of gear.

- Best Piece in my wardrobe (Review by Brent)
Simply put, this is the most versatile piece I currently own. From a layer under a jacket while mountaineering, the hood fitting perfectly under my helmet, to using on a big bike trip...Simply awesome.
I wear it around the house and near the campfire just cause of how comfy it is, all day long. Really like it. Perfect fit for me as a 165 lb 5'10 Medium.
Only con is that it makes me show off my beer belly on those slacking weeks!

- Awesome and awesome and awesome (Review by sololoi007)
Best way to describe this jacket is triple A, Awesome, Awesome, Awesome.
I love this piece of gear, I take this piece with me almost everywhere, it feels great after a long day paddling, to take off the top of your drysuit and put this jacket on to keep you warm while setting up your tent. I take it when I go hiking, cycling and it looks great with jeans when just going out for a coffee, and it is always a theme of conversation with friends, they all seem to want to get one.
Only con is that I love it so much that I have been trying to get a second one and it is always out of stock :( I guess I'll have to keep on trying.

- Comfortable and Versatile (Review by JEAN MICHEL)
I really like this piece. It is comfortable and versatile. Do note that the sleeves are more trim than you might expect, but once you have them on, they sure do stay put.
All in all, a great layering piece. The hoodie is not noticeable when down; I usually get frustrated with that aspect, especially how lowered hoodies tend to bunch annoyingly at the chin. OR did a great job in avoiding that. Hoodie is nice and snug when up.

- Light, breathable, packable, warm where you need it. (Review by Nik_Gyver)
I love this piece. I take it anywhere I am doing business. When I say doing business, I mean kicking ass. It dries fast, wicks well, breathes well and does provide warmth where you actually want it to. I really hate when my back gets super sweaty because I am wearing a pack, and this piece really helps regulate your temperature that way. The only gripe I have is that it feels tighter than it probably should around my neck. Maybe I just need to size up a little...but if they designed it to have a stretchy panel all the way up to the neck, they could have prevented that problem...Just saying...but otherwise, it's freakin awesome.

- another solid offering (Review by captainEJ)
I've had this piece about 6 months and I find it really versatile. Its warmer than it looks but with the full zip you can vent extra heat easily. I find this item great for both back country skiing and hiking in general. The fit is pretty snug on me but its about perfect for aerobic activities. I got a size L and I'm 6' 4" about 185 pounds. The arms are nice and long and I like how the back doesn't have the alpha insulation so when hiking with a backpack your back doesn't get as sweaty.

- Excellent (Review by brygil)
I think what sums this jacket up best is that the other day while rock climbing I wore it and sent a pretty hard route, when I got down my belayer said "I can't believe you just did that with a puffy on". I didn't even realize it. In short, it's stretchy and super breathable and therefore ultra-usable. I highly recommend!

- Good insulating Mid Layer (Review by Jonathon Spitzer)
I like this layer a lot. Typically I have worn an R1 Hoody or something for a mid weight layer for all outdoor activities. The insulation in the chest/body helps keep me warmer and helps cut the wind, but also breaths while i'm moving at a high rate. The hood is awesome and fits over my climbing helmet perfectly! I've found this layer to be part of my new kit.
My only issue is i've found the polartec alpha material easy to tear and shred. Granted I was climbing a chimney with this layer on, so overall pretty happy with this layer.
Uses: Ski touring and resort skiing, alpine climbing, mountaineering, rock climbing, and just city life!
