RATING AND REVIEWS

good jacket

5

I like this jacket I only wish it had a long internal pocket. I searched a longtime to find a rain jacket with an internal pocket, but I never found one. This is one of the biggest gripes my husband and I have about rain jackets. It's such a practical pocket to have. THis fits a little big. I could have gone with a small for sure, but at the same time, with a medium I will at least be able to wear a down sweater/jacket or fleece underneath and not feel restrictive motion. I like all the adjustable areas in the hood, sleeves, and hemline. A lot of adjustability options are a necessary thing with rain coats.

Great jacket!

I'm a field biologist who bought this jacket for my summer fieldwork in a very rainy place. After three months of cold and wet, I can say it's kept me dry in downpours, has taken a beating, and looks like I just got it. There are a few things I'm not crazy about: the wrist openings are elastic with velcro but the elastic is a bit too tight, the front zipper can be a little sticky to start sometimes, and I'd personally prefer lined pockets (as is, there's only mesh inside the pocket, so the wind can cut through when they're open). But those are pretty minor complaints. Overall I love the extensive pit zips, roomy hood, and solid waterproof performance. It's hard to find breathable gear that keeps you bone dry, and I think this jacket gets it done.

Good "all round jacket"

So far I absolutely love this jacket. I have yet to be caught in a severe rain storm with this jacket, but so far it has kept me dry in lighter showers. Lately I've been wearing this on our warmer winter days with an insulator underneath, and it holds up great to the chinook winds. As a result of this, I must say that this jacket is a great multi-purpose jacket.

Fantastic!

Great shell! does what you'd expect and the cornflower blue is a nice color. Roomy enoughfor light layers underneath. (me: 5'5, 135#, curvy).

Not waterproof

1

I've read the reviews and all of them were great. I was stoked for this. Then I encountered my first rain storm, and I wasn't even raining that hard. My layers underneath the Aspire jacket got wet. Everyone's worse nightmare.... Especially when your job is outside. I usually wear a medium in everything the fit is perfect just enough room for more layers but not too bulky. I really enjoy the pit zips. Sucks that it's not waterproof. I haven't tried washing it in nixwax yet. But beings that it's brand new it should be fine.

poor fit

1

Under jacket tile it says, "be the first to review this product" but I see there are many reviews, all good which surprises me, because I think this jackets fits poorly. Like on the model, it fits short in the arms as well as the torso: I'm 5'6/125#. The collar is too tall which is a nuisance. I need a new coat.

AWESOME fit and small sizing!

I don't usually write reviews, especially not having had the chance to really put this jacket through its paces, but am so impressed I wanted to make a comment In case I forget later. Thank you thank you thank you OR, FINALLY an x-small jacket made with x-small proportions! I LOVE the elastic on the cuffs, there isn't tons of extra fabric folded up under the Velcro letting water in, and the sleeves aren't 5 inches too long bunching up unneeded at my hand. The hem length is also perfect, hits just below my butt which is great for cycling and additional coverage, but isn't so long as to feel like I'm wearing a dress. I'm 5ft tall (95#) the x-small can fit a down jacket + fleece underneath, but doesn't look huge with just a t-shirt. Other greats things: great ventilation options(pockets are backed with mesh so theoretically would also vent), double zippers on the front opening and also pit/hip ventilation. All the zippers feel sturdy. Seam taping all looks smooth and well done, there are also minimal logos and stitching (many other jackets have lots of logos and stitching which then require seam tape to make waterproof). When folded into the pocket, there is a small loop so you can hang the stuffed jacket from a harness/backpack. The hood didn't fit great over my bicycle helmet (didn't try a climbing helmet) but the cut is nice enough that it fit well under the helmet and I could turn my head in all directions and visibility wasn't affected. The only negative thing I can say about this jacket is that the storm flaps behind the pit/hip vents aren't made with the gore-tex material. I read numerous reviews saying this jacket is stellar in even the hardest rainstorm so maybe I'm just being paranoid, but since the pit/hip zippers don't look to be the water resistant type, it seems odd that the storm flap isn't made from gore-tex. I'll have to wait for it to rain to really test this out, but so far I'm in love! As long as it doesn't leak this is officially my new favorite jacket and I will be looking at buying outdoor research gear first before looking into other brands.

be the coolest kid on the trail

I have owned this jacket for 2.5 years now and have taken it to Peru, Costa Rica and Iceland. I have backpacked with this jacket and used it in city travel. It packs very small into it's own pocket. This jacket is amazing! It functions well in all environments. On the coldest of days I put a base layer, vest and 800 fill down under it and it wind / water proofs me and on the hottest of rainy days I have a t-shirt on and unzip the sides all the way to the arm so that I am dry and cool. I love the arm pocket for quick grab cash and a small stash of toilet paper or tea bag for a warm drink on the trail. The hood has great adjustments to fit my head with an awesome broad visor to keep the rain out of my face and still let me see. I love this jacket so much I just bought the men's foray for my brother! You literally can't go wrong with this jacket:D

Great Travel Jacket

This is a jacket I feel compelled to write a review on -- it is that good! First I need to mention the front two-way zipper. I will not buy a jacket without a front two-way zipper -- it makes it so easy to adjust the fit. It makes it so easy to go from a rain storm to the driver's seat in a vehicle without taking off the jacket. There are at least ten different reasons on why a front two-way zipper is needed, but I will spare you and just say it is needed. I love the pit/side zipper vents -- more adjustability that is built-in. The cuffs have half elastic and velcro -- another great feature that prevents sleeve-droop. The pockets are huge zip pockets -- they will really get a workout from me! Fabric-wise, you can't get any better than Gore-tex. Hardware -- this jacket has the best! The hood is great; one that I can just flip up if caught in a rain storm. The hood also has adjustability. I was looking for a jacket that would pack down to nothing, both in mass and weight -- one I can travel with. This jackets packs down to practically nothing. Size-wise, the cut is generous. I fit into a medium. I bought a large in the event I want to put some fleece layering under it. Outdoor Research, keep up the good work with the two-way front zippers!
