Men's Floodlight Down Jacket

Style# 244805OR

"Gear of the Year Winter 2014" — Backcountry Skiing Canada

A signature OR piece is now 20 percent warmer. The Floodlight Jacket is a better take on waterproof insulation: the Pertex® Shield+ shell keeps the 800-fill down inside dry, and thanks to feedback from Outdoor Research athletes, it now holds 20 percent more down for increased insulation, and is slightly longer at the hem for more coverage.

The One Jacket (Review by Jason)

Found the one jacket for all things cold, and sometimes a little wet. Ski in bitter cold with a layer, ski in not so bitter cold with a t-shirt, stuff in a pack and pull out when stripping skins, throw on for errands around town, and of course when sitting around a fire. Great fit and warmth with the added bonus of being waterproof. If you love being outdoors and you prefer to be warm get this jacket.

Awesome Jacket (Review by Luis)

Love the jacket! I wore this and a thermal layer while delivering toys to remote villages in Alaska. -37 going 50 MPH on a snowmobile for 2 1/12 hours and didn't get cold or wet! Look no further this is the perfect jacket!

Better than the Patagonia Wanaka (Review by Bo)

My search for the ultimate cold weather jacket came down to the OR Floodlight and the Patagonia Wanaka. Both are similarly priced. The Floodlight is a tad warmer, substantially lighter and much more comfortable. It's also a tighter fit than the Wanaka and thus has less room for layering but looks more form fitting. The Floodlight's hand pockets are well insulated and feel very comfortable whereas the Wanaka's hand pockets are poorly positioned, aren't down insulated, and don't feel as great. The Wanaka's shell is made of stronger weather resistant material and disguises the down, giving it a more urban appearance. The only major downside of the Floodlight is the main zipper. Made of all plastic, it doesn't zip smoothly and I frequently run into zipper trouble at the start. The Wanaka has all metal zippers that operate better. I can live with the substandard zipper, so chose the Floodlight over the Wanaka. Secret feature of the Floodlight that I'm surprised the official descriptions don't mention: you turn either shove-pit pocket inside out to pack it into a wonderfully compact unit.

Great jacket for slushy conditions (Review by Ryan )

I bought the first version of this jacket three years ago and have taken it with me everywhere. I have done numerous hikes where the temperature dropped dramatically as I ascended and the sun went down. This jacket always came through. A few times I got caught in freezing rain and this jacket was great. Also good for keeping you warm while sleeping on cargo planes. Will not go anywhere without this jacket

Finally I have found the one (Review by Simon)

Love the jacket. I like to wear layer but also like to carry less. This jacket is perfect for the PNW where it rains and it is cold and with this you need only to carry one item. Big pockets at a proper height. I am 6.1' athletic fit and I decided for an M because the arm length was perfect and it will give me a tight fit and also it will still allow me to put another external layer for more warmth.
Also I wear it socially in town and for all my outdoors activities and I have had good comments on the fit and look of the jacket.
Totally recommended.

Good Jacket, Updates make it great (Review by Brian)

I found this gem in a used gear shop for cheap, so I couldn't pass it up! It is the older model. I've used it for snowshoeing, ice climbing, cold rock belays, camping and anytime it's chilly and has potential for precipitation here in Denver. It's light for how warm it is. The Pertex shield works great, and I love that I can wear this and not worry about the down when the rains come rolling in or snow turns wet. It's warm, and fits well. I'm 6'4", 240, and the XL fits great-- even in the arms which are tough for a tall guy.

My two (small) gripes are that it could be warmer, and the torso length is just long enough, and I like having some room to spare (again, tall guy). Both of these issues are fixed with the update (20% more down and longer hem!). I can't wait to try the new version, though I am not sure this one will wear out anytime soon...
