Hops color is very misleading


The jacket fits well. I am yet to take it out for a spin. But I thought I had to add my disagreement over the hops color as represented online. The real jacket is of a much darker shade. Not as light as the website pictures show.


light and breathable, love the longer vent zipper.


feels great with a 30 lb. pack on, can open or close the extended zipper for ventilation.

I would buy this again and again


I use this for hunting mainly but I won't go anywhere in the backcountry without it. For backpacking it's great to throw in my pack for cold encounters and it's light enough to also be in my pack.



Just comfortable


I bought the jacket 2 weeks ago in Valdivia and it was a rainy week, but didn't thow up all the southern winter has to throw, it rained only about 15 mm on the evening (that's a normal to light rain for southern standards) but the jacket soaked up completly, it leaked all the back, the shoulders and the arms, only the belly left dry. At first I thought it was sweat because I used it while cycling and when the rains comes the temperature rise up by the greenhouse effect of the clouds above, but it seems extrange to me because I often don't sweat and I'm used to wear rubber shells that don't breath at all. So, in the next morning I walk slowly to the university, that morning rained even less, only 7 mm (acording to the Teja Island weather station) and even so, jacket leaked just like the evening before, lucky this time in didn't end up all soaked. Finally I decided to come back to my trusty rubber shell, maybe it isn't breathable, but it keeps me drier than Gore-Tex. The jacket was astonishing comfortable, considering I'm a tall and skinny man, but the torso was too short, although the arms fit perfectly, being that my biggest problem when I buy clothes. But after all I wouldn't use this jacket for an excursion to the southern Andes, where it rains double or triple than Valdivia (in Valdivia rains 2.000 mm compared to the Andes where rains from 5.000 mm to 8.000 mm per year according to experimental climate stations and the Weather Direction of Chile) besides, my work field requires a lot of journeys to these regions and the need to stay dry and move a lot for a couple of weeks while we retrieve data of ecosystems and measure trees and plants, so if the jacket couldn't endure a windless city light rains, hardly will endure a mountain heavy rain with north wind or puelche (typical fast winds on the mountains), or even a common southern heavy rain in cities like Valdivia or Puerto Montt.



great gore tex shell!


Bought this jacket as a recommendation from fellow climber. XL size was perfect for my 6' 5" frame. Sleeve length was just right. While torso felt a bit loose, this is easily corrected by cinching the draw chord at the waist. I used this as a waterproof shell on a recent Rainier trip when the weather deteriorated drastically in a short amount of time. At it's worst, winds were in the 40MPH range, with steady rain, and sporadic sleet and snow. Variety of zippered seams maintained airflow and I never overheated while moving. When not moving I never chilled or felt cold. No excess of built up moisture under the shell. Exterior beaded water off like ducks feathers. It was easy to pack, light weight, and foldable when the weather was not nasty. I can see why this is an amazingly great product for a wide range of activities. If you need the most out of a shell on few occasions, this is it.


Light Weight Rain Jacket


It's Summer now, so I have only worn this a few times in light rain.



Suitable for Alaska's harsh weather


Served me well in a recent trip to Alaska - with the exception of the aforementioned comments. Was in some very harsh (wet, wind, driving rain) conditions. happy I had it.

Will always have a foray


I use this jacket year round. An excellent piece of gear that is light weight and stowable, perfect for backpacking, canoeing, and general travel. This is my third foray I have 1 that is a size larger than normal when I just want a quick poncho over all my gear and now 2 large (I am 6" 200lbs) 1 for bush bashing that has a few small tears that have been gorilla taped up and 1 that is for less rugged applications. Throw a transcendent hoodie on under this and you are good to -15.

Awesome jacket. I've used it several times in the rain and it kept me dry and comfortable. The hood peak covered my OR trucker hat perfectly. Lightweight and easy to show away on your pack. The size (large) was perfect for my frame (6'1", 190 lbs.). Excellent for backpacking or casual use. The pit zips are great for ventilation during a high output activity. Highly recommended. Excellent value.

Applause to OR


Recently we have had horrible weather here in the mountains of western North Carolina. With that being said, a couple of friends and I had a great opportunity to test out some recent wet weather gear purchases. Between the three of us, we had an Arc'teryx Alpha SV, an Arc'teryx Beta AR, and my Outdoor Research Foray... ALL 3 Jackets are GoreTex, and it's a good thing they were. It absolutely poured on us for about 10.6 miles of the Mountains to Sea trail. I was curious to see how the Foray stood up to the "almighty" Arc'teryx line (with their GoreTex PRO)... and I must say, it performed EXTREMELY well! The Beta AR wetted out alarmingly fast. But was still able to keep the user dry, as the Foray, and the Alpha SV kept the water beading up and rolling off quickly... eventually the pounding rain got the better of the Foray before the Alpha SV. But it's also $500 cheaper. And from what the user said, the Alpha didn't breathe nearly as well as he'd hoped it would. So standing in at $500 cheaper than the Alpha SV, I'd say I got the best bang for the buck... The Torso-Flo pit zips were the talk of the bunch when we were taking our breaks with the packs off. (Very nice with a concealed carry as well). My hats off to this jacket, and a round of applause to OR... very impressed... and I absolutely LOVE the hops green!

Men's Foray Jacket

4.7 109



What is the center back length of the large size?


Hi Herbie, The center back length for a size Large is 31". Thanks for contacting OR,


What is the center back length of the jacket? I would like to make sure none of my mid layers will stick out. Thanks


Hi kyle_kb, The Center Back Lenght of the jacket starts at 29" for a size Small and increases 1" for each additional size up. Thanks for contacting OR,


Would this jacket be flexible enough or well suited for trail running and/or mountain biking? How is the durability to withstand a mountain bike crash?


Hi John, We don't have a jacket that is durable enough to withstand a mountain bike crash. If you're looking for a well ventilated and stretchy jacket, the Men's Boost Jacket is one that we would recommend. If you need rain protection the Men's Realm or Axiom Jacket would be better suited due to the breathable fabric. The Men's Foray Jacket would work, however, it doesn't breathe as well as the Realm or Axiom. The Foray does have pit zips so it may help with ventilation. Thanks for contacting OR,


Men's Foray Jacket Sizing - By your chart I should get a Medium. However, I need to be able to wear a heavy fleece and/or a down vest under this. Would either, or both of those fit under a Medium, or should I go up a size? Most of my jackets (from many companies) lean toward size Large.


Hi GTH, A size Medium has a 46" chest, which is measured 1" under arm hole. A size Large has a 49" chest. If you would like to layer both a heavy fleece and down vest underneath this jacket, you may need to go with a size Large. Thanks for contacting OR,


Can you use this rain jacket for running?


Hi Ruhnner, While this jacket can be used for running, it may not be the most ideal due to the weight and bulk of the jacket. The Boost Jacket would be our best running jacket due to the ventilation. For cold weather running (30s to 50s) the Deviator Hoody would be great. We do have a lightweight rain jacket called the Helium Hybrid Hooded Jacket. It isn't completely waterproof due to the softshell material, but it would provide the best of both worlds, rain protection where you need it most and ventilation/breathability to dump heat. Thanks for contacting OR,


does the hood tuck away in the collar


Hi Thomas, The hood doesn't tuck away in the collar, however, it does roll up and can be stowed away via the hood roll tab (above the interior center back seam). Simply roll the hood forward, insert the hood roll tab through the loop on the back of the jacket, and secure the hood with the Velcro on the hood roll tab. Thanks for contacting OR,


On Men's Foray Jacket, Large, what is the back length and the sweep?


Hi Cindy, In size Large, the centerback (CB) length of the jacket is 31" and the sweep is 48" Thanks for contacting OR, Paul

Does the hood stow away when its not being used?


The hood can be stowed using the Hood Roll Tab featured on the interior of the hood.


How does the left pocket function as a stuff sack?


Hi Iam, The Left-Hand Pocket becomes a stuff sack for the jacket. To use that feature you, invert the Left-Hand Pocket, move the material of the jacket into the pocket, and zip to close The video above shows the opposite sequence happening, but shows how the jacket would look like stuffed into the pocket. Thanks for contacting OR! Paul

Hi, what are the actual measurements of this in a size Large? Thanks


Hi Lee, the measurements of a size Large Foray Jacket are: Chest - 49" Sweep - 48" Sleeve Length - 36.5" (center back to center of cuff - straight measurement) CB length - 31" Zipper - 30" If you have any other questions reach out to us at [email protected] Cheers!
