So Stretchy! (Review by Gif)

Love the fit and stretch of the Transition Hoody! The Polartec Grid fleece really moves with you and is lightweight where you sweat and heavier where you need it. Rad! This one is perfect for me when bouldering, mountain biking, or running when the Radiant Hoody is a bit too heavy.

Perfect for the active outdoors person (Review by Mike)

I received this for review from OR. I found this to be perfect jacket for outdoor activities (hiking and rock climbing). It had the right amount of everything (Stretch, flexibility, durability, and warmth). Aside from the great performance of the Hoody, it looked great and fit my style perfectly! I'm very impressed with OR's ability to keep in touch with the outdoor enthusiasts' needs!

Great for winter trail running and climbing! (Review by Joshua)

This is exactly the piece I was looking for...warm enough for cool to cold weather trail running, xc skiing or mountaineering. If it's a little warmer, I'll wear it next to skin...a little colder, I'll put a wicking layer underneath it and possibly add a shell if windy conditions. Either way it keeps me at the right temperature just about every time. I'm 5'9" and 170, so I ordered a does have some extra room in it but I'm not a fan of tight, tight clothing even base layers. As always, great job OR!

PERFECTO! (Review by Matt T)

I LOVE this hoody. It was 68 degrees in Texas when I got this and was comfortable wearing it around then (out of excitement more than need), and it's now my go to base layer for all situations. The thumb slots make it super easy to slide my arms into other layers or keep my arms fully covered when really active. The hood fits over a helmet well and all of the pockets are the right size and location. I can stash relatively heavy personal items and nothing sags too much. The right combination of stiffness and stretch, along with toughness against wear and tear, and a fabric that's very comfortable.

Great fit and comfort (Review by Tad)

The fit and finish are superb. It breaths well and moves with you.
I just got back from a week in the Alaskan bush fly fishing and a I never wanted to take this thing off. I layered it over my base layer and then added to it as the weather demanded.
I wish they made it in a 1/2 zip. It would make for a fantastic beefy base layer.
