The newest in active insulation technology, the Ascendant Hoody drops excess heat and moisture when you’re questing uphill—but shelters you from the cold when you downshift. The stretchy, weather-shedding Pertex Microlight 20D ripstop outer layer moves with you, and the wicking, lightly fuzzy Polartec Alpha Direct Insulation is perfect over a base layer, or even your skin. Ski in it, climb in it, ride to work in it—live in it.

I have been stealing my boyfriends version of this jacket as much as possible, so I thought it was time I get my own. Absolutely love the fit and the way it shapes my body. Great for outdoor activities but also casual cooler days around town. love it. I also did not want the red to be very obvious and it definitely is not. woo whoo!

Not the quality I was expecting


I was super excited to get this jacket in the mail, but as soon as I took it out of the package I was disappointed. It is very low quality, and even on sale not worth the price. The fleece is itchy, and looks patchy. It isn't soft or fluffy at all. The outside feels cheap and overall I am disappointed in the quality.

athletic fit, super lite and warm


just ordered 2nd one. Love that the shoulders are larger than the waist. Use it backpacking. Super lite for the amount of warmth. I'm 5'5" 105 lbs. Sm fits perfect with sleeves long enough to keep wrists warm.

I believe it's the best jacket for me. Fit for me very well


Every morning, I excise out door wearing it.



Love it!


Great jacket with excellent breathability and warm considering how light it is!


Most versatile jacket ever


I bought this hoody for myself and use it more then any other piece of clothing i own. It does it all. Bought one for my girlfriend as well and she also loves hers more then anything.

I love it.


The color is perfect, and it's warm and well cut. Great mid layer or outer layer when it's less cold. Seems warm when it's cold out and breathable when it's warm out. I've used it casually, on a rock day, on the Oregon coast, and between other layers. Packs up small. Looks great with a logo embroidered on it!

Standard OR gear - solid!


Good jacket for cool spring mornings & evenings! My main complaint is that the color choices are pretty uninspired.



Best hoodie!!!


I got this hoodie a week ago and haven't taken it off since! It holds no smell, breathes, keeps you warm and is an awesome fit.

High tech hoodie


I bought this hoody because I had a 50% off coupon. I'm not sure I would have bought this hoody at full price - that's more of a judgement on me, not the jacket, but it gives you an idea of where I'm coming from. I really want to love this hoody, but I think I'm stuck at "I like it". What puts me off the most is the texture of the fabrics. I'm not sure what I was expecting, but the textures just seem slightly rough, like they would just ever so slightly drag against dry skin - you know, like chapped backpacker skin! I find I don't enjoying wearing it with short sleeves, with with long sleeves its fine. Also, the thumb loops are a teeny bit tight, and one is tighter than the other, just enough to be a little annoying. Otherwise, this is a fancy high-tech hoody that will do its job of keeping you warm without keeping you down. I like the breast pocket and the water repelling ability is pretty top notch. These comments are pretty picky, I know. This is a performance item, but it would get 5 stars from me if it was a little more comfortable.

How do the Ascendant Hoody and the Uberlayer Hoody compare in terms of warmth, breathability, water resistance, fit?


Hi Stillgoing, The Ascendant Hoody has a little less warmth, much more breathable, and a little more water resistance. The Uberlayer is about an 1" smaller in the chest, otherwise they fit the same. Thanks for contacting OR,
