I purchased the Transcendent Sweater in Medium, Dusk/Night roughly six months ago. I'm 5'7 and 165, I wear 16.5 32/33 shirts and a 42 reg suit. The fit is comfortable and looks sharp. It isn't baggy or trendy tight. I think a large would also fit me but i'm glad I got the medium because I'm not likely to need any bulky layers underneath and this is a perfect fit under my OR Foray shell in Medium. I picked up the Transcendent Sweater and the Foray shell to use as a system and it has been an outstanding combination. The transcendent seems pretty tough and I expect it will last a long time. The fabric seems pretty rugged and capable of keeping the feathers in and the zippers are appropriate for the jacket, not just the lightest weight zips available. It easily packs into a pocket which is great. The packed size isn't tiny but you won't destroy the zippers and break your thumbs cramming it into oblivion. I suspect it will tolerate many years of abuse.
The look is this down jacket is Seattle-technical but with a little more western ruggedness than the competition.
I've worn the jacket throughout a NW winter and on a trip to the East coast during one of this year's deep freezes. So most of the wear has been in temps in the 30's and 40's but I've used it down to about 10F. More times than not, I've wished I opted for the vest version because it just isn't cold enough where I live to need a jacket this warm, especially during activity. It really is a warm piece, especially for a 650 fill that's only an inch or two thick. It performed admirably when the temps were in the low teens. Worn with my Foray shell and a light fleece or wool base layer and I would trust this down well below freezing.
A few particulars worth mentioning. First, the glove warmer pockets inside the jacket have an elastic band along the top that I notice and feel even when the pockets are empty. I like the pockets and I think the extra layer of fabric contributes significantly to the jacket's warmth, but for comfort I would use a simple velcro closure at most over the elastic hem. It's not really uncomfortable but I feel it and find it annoying. This is my only serious gripe with this awesome jacket. Second, the lining inside the hand warmers is nice but I would prefer it to be on the other side. Perhaps just a preference thing, but the soft fleece lining is on the back of my hands which are often dry/chapped and they sort of catch on the fleece. No big deal but I would like to have some of that nice fuzzy stuff where my palm and fingertips go. Third, the hem at the cuff could be made of something a bit softer. This might also be a solution to the glove pocket hem. Perhaps durability took precedence here. Lastly, the fleece lining around the neck was something I didn't think would matter when choosing a jacket, but that stuff is amazingly nice and helps the jacket score high on comfort points.

I was stocked to get that jacket looking at the other reviews so I order one in size M since everything I got from OR fit me well in Medium size. But not that jacket...
While the quality and features are great, that jacket was not nearly as close to my body as it should. I'm 5'10", slim/athletic/outdoor gear fit me well, and the Transcendent is a bit large around the trunk and the sleeve are way too large around the armpits!
I had to go with another brand despite having almost all my gear from OR. Too bad....

    Comments about OR Men's Transcendent Down Sweater:

    Really versatile. I have worn it with the maximus and a t-shirt in single digit temps with wind for hours and have been fine. I have also worn in day to day use in the cold temps and it is great. I usually run warmer than most people and this is a great insulator for me. I haven't taken it overnight camping but i plan on using it in my hammock as my overnight gear.

    Comments about OR Men's Transcendent Down Sweater:

    Wore this nearly every evening on an 18 day rafting trip though the Grand Canyon in February. From unloading the boats and cooking dinner to quietly journaling next to some smoldering coals, this jacket kept me nice and toasty during all evening activities.

    I always look for improvement. The jacket occasionally looses a feather hear and there. But this is an issue with all down jackets.

    Comments about OR Men's Transcendent Down Sweater:

    My job often requires long hours in the harshest environments Mother Nature has to offer. I live out of a backpack for days on end, so weight vs comfort is an ever present issue. This jacket is lite, warm, durable,and packs up small. This jacket is my favorite piece of gear I take !

    Awesome lightweight, super packable jacket. Average warmth, but great for what it weighs. Perfect with a fleece underneath and a shell on top down into the teens.

    Love the Transcendent Down Sweater - the athletic fit, lightweight, and high warmth for weight make it ideal as an insulating layer when I ski. And the jacket just looks great, so also wear it as my go to winter jacket for work as well. It goes everywhere with me from Nov thru March.

    I'm 5'11 175 and this jacket is amazing. I am continually surprised at the warmth. I wear it with slacks to work, on the slopes under my shell when snowboarding and took it to the summit of Mt. Rainier. I will always have this jacket in my closet. So good I bought my wife one.

    I can not say enough great things about this puffy! It has become my go to piece on any trip I am guiding. It is crazy light and perfect for backpacking trips, but it extremely durable at the same time. It has rubbed against countless rocks and has not gotten 1 hole in the two years I have had it. Not to mention it looks sharp! The Best Puffy I have owned.
