RATING AND REVIEWS

Lightweight But Warm

5

I wore this as a middle layer or top layer while hiking in Rocky Mt National Park. Morning temps were upper 30's to low 40's and as a top layer I was comfortable. I needed a top wind proof layer over this hoody when winds got gusty at high altitude and the temps were in the 30's. Love that I stayed warm with light layers for a change. I tend to have trouble staying warm.

Ultimate lightweight upper layer

The Whirlwind Hoody is an excellent lightweight piece that I use for summer and winter activities that involve aerobic exercise. I pair the Whirlwind with a Gauge t-shirt to make up my base layer system. Both pieces breath well and dry quickly. The Whirlwind fabric is soft and comfortable, but still durable enough to withstand abuse as my outside layer. I have put mine through the test with 100+ days in the mountains and it is still holding up well. The Hoody feels almost like a shirt, while doing a good job functioning as a lightweight jacket with it's wind resistance, light water resistance, sun protection quality and most essentially, a functional chest pocket. I can fit the medium size iPhone 6 into this pocket. Because I use my phone as my camera, GPS and tool for route notes, I want to have easy access to it, so I am stoked on that chest pocket! The fit is loose enough to be comfortable, but also styled well. The only thing I might adjust to it is to make it slightly longer, but overall the length is good. It generally stays under a harness well and moves with your body comfortably. I am 5'8" about 145 lbs, and wear a medium. The Whirlwind can be stuffed into it's pocket and then clipped to your harness, which is convenient if climbing without a pack. I highly recommend this piece!

AMAZING jacket for trail running!

LOVE this jacket! While I'm usually a Medium, I was torn between the M and S for this jacket. Went with the M, and although it originally seemed a bit baggy I don't notice that anymore. I've used this jacket all winter long on trail runs in the PNW--chilly (30s-40s), rainy, breezy runs. This jacket does surprisingly well at repelling water (at least small rain drops--wouldn't call it waterproof), and I've stayed surprisingly dry on rainy trail runs. I love the fact that this jacket is light and breathable so I can stay somewhat dry without getting too sweaty. And it packs down small so it fits in my running vest. I'm also looking forward to using this jacket in the summer as sun protection if it's not too hot out, and as a light windbreaker on alpine climbs in the PNW. The reason I gave it 4/5 starts was that the seam was coming apart when I got it--just seemed like the two pieces of fabric around the torso hadn't been completely sewn together, but I loved the jacket too much to return it so I just stitched it up and it's good as new. Haven't had any more problems with the stitching so I'm guessing it was just a fluke in production. Overall an awesome jacket!!

Best layer for trail running

If it's chilly, windy or raining lightly, I bring this trail running. It's super breathable, and keeps me just warm enough without turning into a swamp (I run hot). I'll also wear it in place of a long-sleeve wool or tech shirt running- it just breathes better and fits nice and loose around my torso.

The Go-To Alpine Jacket

5

I'm a glutton for fast and light alpine adventures. On these exploits, I found the need for a lightweight softshell style jacket, enter the Whirlwind Hoody. I have put this jacket through the wringer with countless 14'er splitboarding missions (splitmo), technical mountain running ridge traverses, and a ridiculous amount of alpine climbs. With a quiver of jackets at my disposal, I find myself always grabbing for the Whirlwind Hoody. It has stood up to the abuse of chimney scum with ZERO holes and 100% function retained after more than six months of non-stop abuse. As part of the #ORInsightLab, OR provided me with the Whirlwind Hoody to review. The full review can be found here: http://thrillseekersanonymous.com/2016/07/21/outdoor-research-whirlwind-hoody/.

Versatile Hoody!

Looking for a lightweight hoody to throw on as soon as the wind picks up or temps become chilly? This is your jacket! I seem to wear this hoody all the time: on cool summer mornings or evenings, alpine ascents, paddling, teaching, etc. It does it all! Super durable and lightweight this hoody is amazing as it adapts to so many conditons. The only thing I'd recommend is to remove the plastic clip inside the chest pocket (unless you want to look like you are wearing body jewelry). Other than that highly recommended!
