The Transcendent series has been a long-time puffy favorite for climbers, backpackers, mountaineers, and everyone else who spends extended time outside. So we took what you loved - and what you asked for - to create the dramatically redesigned Transcendent Collection. Injected with all-natural responsibly sourced down, the new Transcendent uses wider quilting and a rebalanced down fill to allow its insulation to loft better for fast, compressible warmth. Fresh, modern design lines and colors, trusted lightweight weather resistance, and feature-packed details add even more reasons for adventurers to rely on the Transcendent to excel in their sport. Even if you haven't quite loved your last puffy to death yet, we promise that the new Transcendent will make you reconsider retirement and upgrading to the latest and greatest.

Bought this for my wife since I look for any excuse below 40 to wear my transcendence down jacket and she's always been envious of. She's loves it and it fits great. We like that the women's version kind of tapers to be more form fitting, while still being flexible and not having to worry about being active in it.



Love this jacket


Great everyday winter jacket. Just wore it on a trip from OH to Fl. The jacket kept me warm but not too warm and was easy to pack away when it wasn't needed anymore.



Pleased with my purchase


This coat is a prettier, brighter blue than the picture shows. It's really nice and warm, while still being lightweight. As with all my Outdoor Research purchases, the fit is a bit odd. I am a 12/14 and bought a size L. It fits fine except through the hips, where it's a tiny bit snug. However, an XL would have been too big.

I like it but it's thinner and puffier than I thought


I will be mostly using this product as a light jacket in the fall and spring. I live in the Yukon and it gets cold here, therefore, this jacket could not be an all-around puffy jacket as was described in the product description. From the pictures, I was under the impression that the jacket would have a lot more feathers but it is actually very very light. I think that the large feather pockets create the bulky look which is to me very misleading since the coat is thin. It would make a good liner to a shell, and I will probably​ take it camping with me as it really does pack into a small ball.

Perfect for incoming winter


Much warmer than I expected - will be perfect for dry winter conditions.





This jacket is awesome, I feel like it runs a little large so I got a L and consider myself being somewhat bulky and broad-shouldered, but it fits great and has plenty of room for layers. I have used it in the cold and it's really soft warm and comfy (has a lot of good pockets) but also super packable. I would recommend, I use it as a down jacket, but could use it as insulation for cold winter ski days. The only downside is that you have to be careful with the zippers so they don't snag, but you used to the motion.

Stylish, Warm, packs compactly, READY FOR ADVENTURE


It's my new winter coat to play in the snow and look smashing while doing it.

Wife Doesn't Leave the House Without It


Purchased for my wife. Since the temperature has dropped she rarely leaves the home without it. It's lightweight and incredibly warm, much better than the parka she used to wear and complained about the bulkiness of every time. Truly packs down into its own pocket as well, which makes it a great option for travel. She does have wider hips and it is a very snug fit so layering is hard, but at least the rest of the fit is good.
