Good Jacket (Review by Gregda)

This is a super warm jacket. It would be nicer if you could stow the hood. It kept getting in my way when bending over while working. Very annoying. I ended up having my seamstress remove the hood. Also, the zipper is very flimsy and hard to get started. A more beefy zipper would make me give this jacket a 5 star

Best ever! (Review by Jim)

I researched down jackets for quite a while before purchasing the virtuoso. I own several already but they just didn't either do what I wanted them to do or look the way I wanted them to look. This jacket is Awesome! The only problem is it has to be really cold to wear because this thing is WARM! A lot of attention was put into the design and I appreciate that. One of the little things I like is the zipper pulls are perfect. Smaller pull for the chest pocket and larger pulls for the side pockets and main zipper. I am 6'2" 215lbs and got the XL. It fits perfect with room for layers if I ever need them. Thanks OR for a superior product.

Awesome jacket (Review by Skier)

First a note on fitment: I'm 6'2" 220lbs and tried on a floodlight jacket in an XL and found it to be just about right, and since that jacket and this one are both listed as 'standard fit' I figured XL would be perfect. It ended up being wayyy bigger. I called OR and it turns out a size L in the virtuoso is BIGGER than a XL of the Floodlight jacket... strange, but they were great as always and switched out my XL Virtuoso for a L. Definitely not standard fit, more relaxed and baggy for sure, sleeves were plenty long in the L.

Now the jacket, super nice and puffy, first day I wore it I couldn't even leave it on inside, way to warm! Fits great, moves with you, and perfect to layer with on the super cold days, and great as a stand alone down to 0 degrees. Love it, and of course the OR infinite guarantee cant be beat.

Great puffy (Review by OR Pro in CO)

Love this puffy. I've got five puffies, I may have a problem, lol. Love the Lemongrass color, get lots of compliments. 5'11" and weigh 205, XL fits perfect. This is my go to belay jacket and for when it dips down to single digits and below. It's one step below an expedition parka. It is much warmer than a mid weight puffy like a Patagonia Down Sweater. I've worn it down to minus twenty in moderate activity level. Kept me toasty. Lots of pockets, soft fleece collar, a hood I can use with or without a helmet. It stayed dry with light, dry snow. Only reason I knocked it down a star is that it should use the newer water proof down treatment. This is too much for a layering piece, so as an outer layer, I don't want snow soaking it through. Because it's only water resistant, I would not take it on an extended trip where it might get wet. Otherwise a great jacket.

Almost a second home... (Review by DesertChoss)

I rarely write reviews on products and when I do it's only after thoroughly putting a product through the ringer. I purchased the Virtuoso in Fall of 2012. A small fits me perfectly 5'10 135lbs. The sleeve and back was the perfect length with room to put it on over layers when belaying. Since then it has been used and abused at least monthly and daily for at least 6 months out of each year without a single washing (gross I know) I think it's ready to be reviewed. I believe this puffy strikes a perfect balance between weight, cost, durability, and warmth. It's not too warm to be a fall belay jacket, yet with proper layering has handled winter ascents in the Rockies like a champ. It packs small enough to always bring with you, yet keeps you toasty warm when needed. The hood perfectly fits over a helmet and the neck zips up comfortably. In 3 years of abuse, I have patched 3 holes that were my entirely my fault (never trust someone who has a puffy without patches). It still has maintained it's loft. None of the threads in the baffling have come loose and the zipper has only shown minor wear. The velcro on the cuff is also still working fine. The only issue I have with mine is that the stuff pocket is so small it barely fits the jacket and results in a rock hard pillow. This has been fixed in current models. I even liked the Virtuoso so much, I bought one for my wife who also lives in hers. The perfect puffy for the perfect price.

Perfect... (Review by Steven)

Used this as high as 13,000 ft during a summit push on Mt. Rainier during the middle of April, 2014, and it did not disappoint. I was never even slightly cold when I wore this jacket for rest breaks. Light, very packable, extremely warm, quite weather ( heavy wind/light rain) resistant, nice-looking (I've got the pewter/black), well-fitting (standard, but not baggy--no Michelin-Man midrff billowiness!), and durable. Cannot say enough about how satisfied I am with this product. An excellent value. Well done, OR!

Men's Virtuoso Hoody™ (Review by By Spindrift)

Great jacket for the price and fits extremely well. Works very well for bely and the zipper easily slides up and out of the way of my harness. This is not an overly warm jacket considering its fill weight. I attribute this to the low rating of the down and the sewn through construction instead of baffles. I like this jacket and wear it a lot at the local crag but it is not my first choice for high altitude alpine climbing.

Men's Virtuoso Hoody™ (Review by By Sunshine)

I am a female that purchased this jacket for myself and I love it I did not like the colors the female jackets came in. The fit is bulky but to be expected with any down jacket. It is extremely warm and fairly waterproof.

Men's Virtuoso Hoody™ (Review by By Kyle)

I wore this coat on two new major first ascents in China, Mt. Edgar and Grosvenor. Both were above 21,000ft. The day we summited I was climbing in the coat the entire day but on the other days the Virtuoso worked wonderfully as a belay jacket. At extreme cold and with several layers underneath the Virtuoso the neck cuff and the hood become difficult to put on.

Men's Virtuoso Hoody™ (Review by By Machavok)

I love the fit and consistency of this piece. I've worn loft pieces where jacket sags, loses its loft...this piece doesn't. It's super warm, durable, and reliable.

Men's Virtuoso Hoody™ (Review by By Warren the Sit Skier)

Unless you're going up high (+20,000ft), the Virtuoso is really all you're going to need for winter climbing, skiing; or tooling around in general, especially if you get your layering right underneath it.

Men's Virtuoso Hoody™ (Review by By DoubleAReid)

The jacket was very light and easily compressible for storing in a pack. The fit was good. The zipper was not always consistent, as it would get stuck when trying to start it. I used this jacket on a summit climb of Mount Rainier. Luckily the weather was not bad with an air temp of 10 degrees at the summit, but I was still a little cold at rest stops on the way up and walking around the summit. I feel as if the virtuoso was pushed beyond its limit on this trip.

Men's Virtuoso Hoody™ (Review by By James)

Great fit, great price, and great warmth. The Virtuoso is a bit roomy for under-layers and I have even been able to fit it under my Mentor Jacket when stuck outside in the rain. The really cool thing about this puffy is that the shoulders and arms have a water resistant fabric that sheds light rain and snow! Plus the down hood is helmet compatible and super warm. Having hook and loop closures on the wrists is great too because elastic wears out too quick. Lastly, the Virtuoso packs into its own pocket and makes a great pillow!

Men's Virtuoso Hoody™ (Review by By D-Zilla)

I'm super stoked on this jacket! The OR Company does a great job on building jackets to withstand nature. Plus this jacket just looks great! I would like to see in the future a better style of needlework to improve upon durability. And also when you are an avid boulder you will need to put this warm thing on and take it off many times depending on the project of the day. This being said the jacket just falls short in the Zipper size and the effort it take to line up and zip. Other than those two small things impressive jacket!

Men's Virtuoso Hoody™ (Review by By Ryan)

I love this jacket! I've skied in it on cold, dry days and I end up sweating! Jacket works for skiing but doesn't have a lot of the features of a true ski jacket (powder skirt, zip-vents) and can be tough to cool down when you get warm. Does have a water resistant fabric on the shoulders and sleeves that keeps you dry, but I don't know if I would want to be out in a blizzard in it. My favorite uses is everyday wear on cold days, walking around town, and other non physical activity in the cold. Super lightweight, and easy to move in! Nothing is more comfortable then a Puffy Jacket!

Men's Virtuoso Hoody™ (Review by By Boe)

I use this jacket mostly while ski touring in the NW. It is a life saver for the ski down, especially if you are sweaty from the skin up. It is amazing how quickly it starts trapping heat. I would say with in 10 seconds of putting it on, in a cold environment, I can feel the warmth kicking in!
