When a piece of gear has a cult-like following like the Ferrosi Hooded Jacket does, you don’t mess with it unless you can really justify it. So we kept everything everyone loves about our tough but breathable do-it-all lightweight weather-resistant soft shell, and added thumb loops and slightly changed the hybrid mapping on the wrists for a fresh look.

A great soft shell layer...


A great soft shell layer if it's not too cold out. Keeps the wind out. Does fine in drizzle or light rain, but not intended for extended rain showers. Amazingly light, dries quickly, also good as a light sun protection layer. My only gripe is that it's a 'standard fit' and I prefer a closer fit...



Very Pleased


Very satisfied with this jacket. Light weight, but blocks the wind. Purchased the Coyote/Fatigue. Pleased with these colors.

Great piece- exactly what I was looking for


I have a similar jacket that was military issue, by another manufacturer, and it's perfect for between t-shirt and jacket weather. But I wanted something that didn't say 'tactical' to everyone when I wore it around town. The Ferrosi Hooded Jacket fits the bill. Fit is great, true to size. Only thing I'd change if I made this jacket would be to put the pockets higher.

Excellent protection from brush, bugs and sunburn.


Just spent a week in the Picket range. Lived in this garment for bug and sun protection.

Do everything mountain layer


This is my second Ferrosi jacket and it continues to impress! A truly excellent do everything layer. Not too warm, breathes well when you are working hard and can be layered up or down depending on temps. It goes in my pack or on my back almost everyday with the exception of mid-winter conditions. Also fine for casual wear around town.

Perfect jacket with tons of applications


Bought this for a road trip from NC to AK. Wore it on several hikes throughout the trip. Incredible jacket. Dumps heat during strenuous portions of hike and serves as good basic layer for cool weather and some wind. Also worked incredibly well as a layer over my ascendant hoody. Also kept me dry in light to moderate rain. The thumb loops are perfect. My buddy borrowed it for a few hikes and I had to wrestle it from him when he flew out. Bought the diablo and it looks great. 5'11 180 pounds medium fit me perfectly. Will be buying a few more in different colors. Can't say enough great things about this jacket



Nice jacket


Good lightweight softshell jacket with a bit of stretch. I am 6 feet and 175 lbs. Relatively slim but gravity is slowly starting to drag my chest down to the place where my six pack use to live. I bought a size Large and it fits well. And there is still enough room for a bit of lighter weight insulation without stretching the jacket too far. Very nice jacket, I like it.



Great lightweight Jacket, good fit


Nice design, Like the fit in the back with extra length

Would be perfect if fit was consistent


I own the three year old version of Ferrosi Hoody in a size XL, which is too big for me in every way -- chest, sleeve length, even body length. I have only used it over a puffy or fleece because it is so big. I bought the new version in a size large and was surprised at what a huge difference it was from the old version. The new version is skin tight through the body and the sleeves are so short I can't comfortably use the thumb holes. Everything other than the fit is great. It is impossible to believe that and XL (old version) is way too large and that the L in the new version is definitely too small. I am 6'1", 185, with a 33" waist.

This is my second skin.


I am an avid outdoorsman and compete in extreme military survival competitions. These are the best jackets.. ever. The stretchy makes it super comfy. The shell is just the right amount of thickness to be used as a windproof and damp proof layer. It packs up so small I can throw it in my bag all the time. The color selections and fit are perfect. I am 5'10" and athletic build, the medium is perfect for me. OR is setting the standard for outdoor wear these days. This jacket is a must have. My wife and I both wear them. In fact, I don't think I've seen my wife without it on for a year now. Might need to talk to her about that.

I am 6'3'' tall, chest 40'' sleeve 35''. Should I get a M or a L?


Hi Hotzi, We'd recommend a Medium if you prefer your clothes to be fitted, it may be a little short in the sleeve, but it won't be as baggy compared to the Large. Thanks for contacting OR,


Hi. I'm 5' 9" tall, 145 pounds, with a 37/38 " chest. Would you recommend a small or medium? Thanks!


Hi Matt, We would recommend a size Small if you prefer your clothes to be fitted, a size Medium if you wanted it looser. Thanks for contacting OR,


What is the length of the sleeve for the size XXL and XL and how it is measured?


Hi markodecaja, The sleeve length for the XL is 36.5" and for the XXL is 37.5". It is measured from the Center Back to center of cuff (straight measurement). Thanks for contacting OR,


I am looking for a jacket with maximum ventilation and breathable with water resistance for hiking and scrambling in the rain. Would the Ferrosi or Valley rain jacket be better for this? Or is there a different product you would recommend?


Hi Robert, The Valley Jacket will not provide the maximum ventilation and breathability due to the materials. However, the jacket is waterproof and it does feature dual separating, TorsoFlo zippers, which if you do get warm or start to sweat you can open up to ventilate. This jacket would be ideal if you plan on using the jacket in extended periods of rain. The Ferrosi Jacket is water-resistant and provides excellent ventilation and breathability, the material is also very soft and lightweight. However, it is not ideal for an extended time (scrambling) in the rain. If you need a water-resistant jacket with more warmth, the Ascendant Jacket is another option. The Polartec Alpha Direct material is a little bit more durable and burlier than the Alpha material so you may have direct-to-skin contact without a layer in between the fabric and skin. This allows and helps move more moisture to the surface of the fabric to wick away moisture. Thanks for contacting OR, Paul

How should this jacket be washed/cleaned? Does it have a DWR coating that needs to be reapplied every once in a while? How should softshells be cared for in general?


Hi Caleb, Sorry for the late response. The Men's Ferrosi Hooded Jacket do have a DWR coating that needs to be refreshed occasionally. We recommend either using a small amount of non-detergent soap (or technical wash), and following up with an extra rinse cycle and a low heat tumble dry cycle. We recommend using Nikwax Tech Wash and Softshell Proof, they sell it as a pack (Softshell DuoPack). Thanks for contacting OR, Paul

Is the inside of the jacket lined? What is the texture?


The Ferrosi Hooded Jacket is not lined; the fabric feels the same on the outside as it does on the inside. It's a lightweight softshell fabric with a lot of stretch and breathability.


Hey there! I'm just curious if the ferrosi hoody is the same jacket as the jerrosi hooded jacket? I was interested in the ferrosi hoody but it seems to be all out of stock.


The Ferrosi Hooded Jacket is the updated version of the Ferrosi Hoody. The main difference is the construction of the pockets and the cuffs. (The Ferrosi Hooded Jacket has thumb holes at the cuffs; the Ferrosi Hoody doesn't.)
