RATING AND REVIEWS

Fully functional

5

This was replacement for original where zipper and pockets failed. I love this piece for its overall function as it's a perfect mid layer for 3 season adventures. It's not bulky and I love the hood option as it adds about 5 degrees to the comfort zone. Windresistant, ok in a light drizzle but would prefer a shell if ongoing precipitation .

Perfect for cool fall days and moderate winter temperatures. Makes for a nice mid layer too when you need a little extra insulation.

Best light puffy ever

purchased as a replacement for my original halogen puffy. Used it more than any other puffy.

A perfect jacket for cool, windy fall weather

5

Was looking for something to replace my old OR light weight jacket and this is perfect. I was also looking for a windproof insulated jacket to wear underneath my mesh motorcycle jacket, and again, perfect. This jacket is warmer and more windproof than my synthetic hoody but not as warm or bulky as my 100gm quilted jacket. The Cathode is light enough to wear heading out just as the afternoon starts cooling off and warm enough when you're coming home after dark. It has an athletic fit that is a little snug across my upper chest (40") in med but I hardly notice it under normal use. I am so pleased that I found exactly what I was looking for and that it performs so well.

Amazing Jacket

Great puffy for the field. Identical quality and performance to similar more expensive jackets. Ideal for layering given the slim fit design (I found measurements for sizing was very accurate).

This is a nice jacket. High warmth to weight ratio. Exterior is soft and quiet. The hood fits well.

Great jacket, small fit (try size at store first)

5

This is an awesome jacket, but fits small. (You need to order up on size) Im usually a Slim Medium with the OR brand, but the large fits me perfect and im 5'11.

Nice

I'm 5f8i and 175 . The size large fits perfect. I am between a medium and large in many brands for this type of jacket for reference. I use this piece for everything from gym warm up to backcountry skiing , shooting archery on chilly mornings , or mountain biking . Just a great all around piece. Its not designed to be waterproof so I'm not sure why others even mentioned that ? I'll buy another 1 for sure.

Question about the mens Cathode Hooded jacket that has won OR some gear awards. Ad says it is a trim fit so I'm thinking it's like the Ferrosi soft shell jacket. That was a little tight through the chest on me, but the sleeve length was right. I do have one of your rain jackets in a Large. If I go up to an XL in the Cathode will I gain an inch in sleeve length ? There are not any sleeve lengths listed in your sizing chart. My chest measurement is 44-45.." Open to suggestions.

William

Hi William, A size Large Cathode has a Chest measurement of 46" and a Sleeve Length (SL) of 36". In a size XL, the Cathode has a Chest of 49" and a SL of 37". The Ferrosi Jacket in a size Large has a Chest of 46 1/2" and a SL of 35 1/2", while a size XL has a Chest of 49 1/2" and a SL of 36 1/2. If the size Large in the Ferrosi was a little tight, I'd go with the size XL in the Cathode. Thanks for contacting OR!

what is the temperature rating for the cathode hooded jacket? I will be trekking in zero to -5 degree F. Will this jacket suffice if I have a base layer + fleece under it?

Jai

We don't assign temperature ratings to our jackets because it's so subjective, but unless you're being extremely active, I think you may want something a little warmer.I would wear the Cathode in temps down to the low teens.
