Challenged in the wind


This is a nice jacket, but I don't wear it as much as I'd like. Any wind cuts through the arms, but the chest can run hot. So I have a hard time finding the right condition to wear this.


Perfect winter layer for people who run hot & sweaty


I kinda didn't want to love this. I saw all the great reviews but it just looked a bit goofy to me (I like more understated styles). After using it a few times now I just don't care what it looks like. I run really hot & sweaty, so finding the right clothing for winter activities is a challenge. This does a great job of balancing warmth and breathability. I've been using it for some trail runs & brisk hikes in 20-30 degree weather this winter with just a poly tee on underneath and it does exactly what I wanted. The vest keeps your core warm and keeps off a lot of wind. The hood keeps the wind off your ears. The gridded fleece on the arms and back keeps in enough warmth but lets through a lot of air to keep you dry (as dry as I can expect to be anyway). I bring a light shell in case the wind really picks up or for rain/rest. But this does the trick when moving. I had some concerns about the durability based on other reviews, and the ripstop material over the vest does feel very thin, but so far no issues to report. I did a long hike last weekend on a poorly-maintained trail with thorns everywhere - they were constantly grabbing all my clothes and my hands were bloody and scratched from when I had my gloves off, but I didn't get any tears in the Deviator. Two minor gripes, which still aren't enough to take away a star: -The sleeves are just a tad short for me. Granted I have very long arms, but usually OR tops (size L) fit me perfectly. I would like these 1-2" longer so I could use the thumb holes without pulling the arms completely taught. -The waist cinch cord is a bit funny. It works, but they way it is tucked into the right front pocket, when you tighten it sometimes the slack gets pulled from between the pocket and the hem, rather than just around the hem. So the front of the jacket on the right is sort of bunched up. You can shift it around to even it out, but it's just a little odd.



Very good but a couple gripes


This is a great mid-layer for active pursuits. Warm and breathable. Love the slim fit and great range of motion. I use this when xc skiing, cycling, and running in cold weather (cold for western WA). If it is not too windy, I have been able to use this down to 30 with only a lightweight base layer when active. The insulation in the chest does a good job of retaining heat so I usually have to take it off if I'm active and it's above 45 or so (I do run slightly warm though). The one downside to the breathability is that wind cuts through so it's good to pack a lightweight shell on windy/wet days. If you plan on stopping in the cold, this won't keep you very warm so definitely pack a puffy or another insulating layer. The two gripes I have are durability and fit around the neck. The fleece in the back seems durable enough but I ripped holes in the front baffles of two previous Deviators by washing them with other clothes. OR customer service was great about taking them back but this is still kind of annoying to have to wash by itself (I just don't wash it now). Also, the jacket fits well everywhere except for the neck where it is very hard to zip up past my collarbone (I don't think I have a larger than normal neck). I usually end up leaving unzipped to the bottom of the neck and probably lose a little bit of warmth because of this.

Great midlayer


My favorite cold weather midlayer. This is my 2nd Deviator hoody. Breathes great, fit is perfect (on the slim side), very comfortable and warm for the weight. 4/5 because it could stand to be a little more durable.

Solid layer.


I had a 2017 model of the deviator and loved it before it got stolen.. I replaced it with the latest and have noticed it feels tighter around the neck. Like barely any room when zipped up. Weird pattern change? My other gripe is that the hood elastic is too snug slightly pulling your head down. You can remedy this pretty easily with some sewing skills though. That said it's a wonderful layer for high exertion when temps are right around freezing.


Great layer, not built to last


Really enjoy the deviator hoody. With the ascendant probably the best garments OR offers. Unfortunately the deviator just gets absolutely shredded on the front. The polartech alpha is protected by very light, mayne 7D fabricthat just fets shredded on everything. Ive owned the jacket for two months and put about 5 holes in it working. One from scrambling and one from taking off a drysuit. And i mean the paches are 2x3 inches, not pinholes. OR should add some more burly fabric and tighten it where it isnt loose and is less likley to catch.



Love it, but a bit tight in the chest


I love this layer, it fits in nicely with the many OR layers I already have (echo hoody, ferosi, ascendant etc.) and fills a niche not already taken care of it. I love climbing in it because it only has insulation and fragile material on the chest where I'm not likely to be abrasing it on rocks. This is one reason I was worried about climbing in my ascendant, especially in wide cracks. That said when I got the layer it was rather tight in the chest. I'm ~6' tall but have a slim build and the Medium fits perfectly everywhere except when I take a deep breath in the chest it feels rather tight. Other than this I like it a lot.

Perfect layering when wearing a backpack


The Deviator is my go-to piece whenever I'm moving, wearing a backpack and it is colder outside. I love having the synthetic down just as front vest; it keeps my core warm, while the back breathes better so sweat doesn't pool as quickly under a backpack. I wear it whenever temps drop below 50 while I'm multipitch climbing. The fabric is durable and form fitting. Even when I've torn the puffy vest, the down doesn't come flying out because it's synthetic; it's great not to have to worry about losing down even when the going gets rough. The hood is form fitting and is great under a helmet as well. While the Deviator isn't warm enough for long, cold belays, paired with a down hoody colder weather climbing is a dream!
