Climbers, hikers and skiers fell hard for the Floodlight because its 650 fill power down is utterly undaunted by wet weather. Completely windproof and seam-taped with bonded down channels protected by Pertex® Shield+ 2L, the Floodlight is a better take on waterproof insulation. This parka version is slightly longer, providing extra warmth and style.

Great gift for my wife

Wife loves this jacket, have not tried it out in cold weather yet.

I hope this lasts forever

The zipper is hard to get started but other than that it is super warm and fits great. It keeps me dry and warm in seattle. I had to walk to work 3 miles during the snow storms and it kept me warm and dry. Love this coat so much.

Outstanding Jacket

5

This jacket has performed above and beyond expectations. The late and longer winter in Northeast Washington this year was no issue with this jacket on hand. It is a fantastic jack of all trades.

One of the few waterproof down CYA coats on the market...

5

As one of the only waterproof down coats on the market, the Floodlight gets much use for me this winter 2018-19. Pertex outer shell, while not as burly, spendy nor thick as Gore-Tex, is MORE than adequate for consistent PNW precip (fat, wet flakes, cold rain, etc) IME. Generous, toasty hood works well w/o helmet (unlike some outdoor oriented ones that only work well with helmets)... because it works well, it also slightly limits hearing. Great for low exertion activities (slower hikes, dog walking/training outdoors in all conditions, etc) in snrain & sleet (perhaps even belaying ice/alpine climbs, if one sizes up to throw over all their clothing). Might not be a piece for those who run excessively hot. 5'8", 147lbs, 38B, size medium (or large if layering) work well for me.

Versasatlile, comfortable, perfect!

I travel full time and need clothing that can fit multiple uses: be functional for active outdoor use and look good enough to wear in the city. This fits the bill. I am from Seattle where this coat is ideal, wet weather, but I have used this through a Boston/Cape Cod winter now also. It has been perfect from windy icy conditions to wet heavy snow, and from backpacking to city wear. Of course it's not the BEST at either, but an amazingly versatile coat for someone who can carry only one. Below 10deg I needed to add layers underneath, but there was plenty of room for that (without being extra big or bulky). The quilted/no-stitch design also minimizes the amouth of down that comes out which is a plus. I love the intermediate length, and the weight of the fill is perfect. Any warmer and it would be too warm to hike and be active in. I am 6', 155# and have a medium, which is my typical OR size. I'm going to buy an extra in case the design changes because this is a great all-use coat for active travelers!

Why are you selling an inferior product to women?

1

Same name as the men's jacket. Same price as the men's jacket. Almost as heavy as the men's jacket. Cheaper down than the men's jacket. Which is extra ridiculous, given that smaller bodies need more insulation, not less. Why the change, OR? Don't you care about your women customers? I'm done, not just with this jacket, but with companies that market inferior products to women. Changing brands.

I love the way this jacket fits, plenty of room to move but still has some shape to it. I've been wearing it around town, it's warm and functional for casual wear and looks good. I'll use it on outdoor adventures soon and am excited to try it out in the wet snow.

What happened to the old Wm's Floodlight model?

1

I used the old version of this jacket for years in the field and it held up like a champ in rain, snow and sleet. I'm very disappointed that the non-parka version of this jacket is no longer available. It was a fantastic jacket and did not need the modifications it was given. I am also very disappointed that the down fill was decreased from 800 to 650 and the price stayed the same. OR is usually a leader in creating womens gear that is equal to the mens choices so I'm curious as to why the men's Floodlight remained untouched but the women's has been altered for style. I would respectfully encourage OR to go back to its more practical and warmer older model. Until then ladies, I would recommend another jacket.

Stylish jacket that stands up to the elements

I love the color accents, warmth, and length of this jacket! PRO's - it's very warm and waterproof and I've stayed toasty on walks in the neighborhood (have owned it a month). CON's - the sleeves are long for an extra small, so I have to roll up the cuffs a bit, and the zippers can be sticky. The zipper thing is an issue I've had with other OR jackets, which may be due to their approach to waterproofing the zipper lines?

I live in Alaska, and am looking for a jacket that I can use around town in -15F-ish (maybe paired with an R1) and that can pack up and go on trips into the mountains. How do you think the Floodlight would handle my level of cold? And if not this jacket, do you have one that you recommend? Thanks!

Jessica

Hi Jessica, Sorry for the late response. Our jackets aren't temperature rated so I wouldn't be able to give you a clear answer. I've worn the Floodlight Jacket (which has 800 fill power down vs the 650 in the parka) while walking to work in temperatures around 25 F and I was good, however, at -15 F I'd imagine that even with a fleece (such as the R1) that you might get cold especially on the idle/non-active segments of your trip(s). Unfortunately, the Floodlight Down Parka is our warmest women's jacket. If you can fit into Men's sizing, I would consider the Incandescent Down Hoody (extremely warm, not the most durable, highly recommend wearing a hard shell over) or the Perch Belay Parka, which is our warmest synthetic insulated jacket. Hope that helps, if you have any other questions reach us at 1 855 967 8197. Thanks for contacting OR, Paul

Please clarify what type of fill is in the Floodlight Parka. The short description says 650 but the Specs description says 800+

Hi Love the Big Lake, the Floodlight Parka is 650 fill power. I'll forward that to our dev team and we'll try to get the site update. Thanks for contacting OR!
