Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have bought this product again and again! One of my favourite and most versatile mid layers ever! I wear it under my jacket in the winter, when skinning or bootpacking it gives good protection from the elements , snow wind and minor rain. While the breathability allows heat and perspiration to be expelled very well... in summer I use it biking, hiking , or for whatever . I own 2 hooded and 1 non hooded ferrosi jackets ... none show signs of wear and tear , one being too old to remember when i got it , one 3 years old and 1 new one. I wear one of the three nearly everyday and I'm not the easiest on my gear ... so Impressed with this material ... don't know what I would do without them...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You don't have one yet? Great layer to keep light rain and moderate winds at bay on your adventures. I bought a Large. I'm 5'9". @ 214lbs the fit was tighter, but now at 196lbs it's a a lot better. My OR Radiant Fleece is the most I would layer underneath. Consider one size larger for layering. My OR Furio Jacket (L) layers great over top for downpours. Very breathable on its own, not uncomfortable with the Furio over top. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to run it through its paces in the Canadian Rockies, yet. Right now my adventures are limited to stroller pushing and dog walks on local trails. Once I'm back to full on hiking, backpacking and climbing, I wouldn't leave home without it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great all purpose breathable shell At 6' 200 lbs I'm usually in between L and XL. A large in the Ferrosi hoody could not have fit better. Form fitting, not tight, with just enough room for layering. There is three zippered pockets. Unlike some other big brands the logo isn't loud and plastered on front and back, just a discrete "OR" is on the left chest. I am glad to see that Outdoor Research is not on the sleeve. I love OR products, but always felt that having the full name spelled out was a little to much. I tested the water shedding ability of the Ferrosi in a 30 minute walk through a steady light, wind driven rain. My cotton pants were soaked through of course. My cotton shirt was wet but not soaked through. However it breathes much better than any so-called breatheable hard shell.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite All purpose all season Jacket I love this jacket so much ive bought 2 of them just so i can alternate colors and reduce suspicion of being an unlaundered dirtbag! Living in colorado i hike daily year round. Camping sking rock climbing are the local requisites and few items in my gear closet can make the pack list all year. The Ferrosi hoodie easily spans a temperature range ive personally used from 85°f down to -22f. Its best to think of the ferrosi as a force multiplier complimenting layers worn under and/or over it. Stand alone with just a T-shirt you'll be fine hanging out for some microbrews. The style is "outdoorsy" cult classic! As for layers starting at sunny hot high temps its thin and breathable enough to be a sun hoodie just for UV and insect protection. Taken it rafting and it works wonderfully. Getting soaked or falling in the river isnt a big deal. It dries out fast in the sun while wearing it on par with most nylon swim suits or shorts. In moderate summer camping weather in Colorado say between 32°f and 70°f long sleave base shirts of various weights can be worn under the jacket to dial in optimal comfort from silk weight synthetic to merino to high loft thermal pro supper fuzzies. Personal favorite combo is an MHW hooded monkey man grid fleece under my Ferrosi. This makes for a sweet combo down to the teens of never shivering nor sweating while moderatly hiking climbing. The Ferrosi wont protect from a sustained downpour of rain. But when worn under a tighter fitting Gore tex shell its weave really helps disperse and even out your sweat and moisture eliminates that clammy feel. It also contributes a slight insulation value when worn under a shell. However in graupel and misty rain i like the ferrosi better as an outer layer since you can walk yourself dry usually faster than the precipitation gets you wet. I really like the reliability and durability of the jacket. I wear it over light down and pertex synthetic mid layers to protect their fragile fabrics in extremes

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Same but different. But not good different. I own two Ferrosi hoodies from previous season and was excited to grab a third one during a holiday sale. Color was great but fit was same but different and not in a good way. I blame the zipper angle. It could be me but the zipper angle and placement seems different and it makes the torso area fit appear wider than previous versions. Also the thumb hole fit is a bit tight but I dig that change. Aside from the zippers. The color feel and performance are all the same.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from After 5 years of heavy use, I bought another This piece is perfect for adventure in spring and summer, as a wind / light precipitation breaker, or in winter over an insulation layer. The material stretches a bit which is great, for fitting over a ski helmet, and the cut of the jacket leaves enough room for an insulation layer but not so much that it flaps in the wind on a bike ride to the grocery or watering hole. Thumb holes are a nice feature added in the most recently purchased Ferrosi. This is my go to jacket anytime I travel, and for long trips with potential cold or inclement weather I pair it with a down jacket that is a great travel pillow for air/train/bus travel. I also own a Ferrosi Metro Hoodie, when I need to dial it back for business/casual- all in I own 3 Ferrosi jackets, am hard on my gear, and would recommend this jacket for almost any circumstance.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very comfortable and versatile I am 5' 10' and 140lbs and the medium is an excellent fit with ample room for a fleece layer. Given the stretch fabric of this hoody, I could actually add a light puffy layer, but it's not ideal. The second thing I appreciate are the sturdy zippers. A lot of minimalist gear trim weight by skimping on zippers, but the zippers on this hoody are easy to handle and work great. Of course, the fabric combination is also ideal for active movement with reinforcement in the right places: this fabric is already well known to be solid, so I won't add anything more. The only suggestion for improvement is to add another one or two inches in height to the front of the collar, which would place it a little closer to the chin for improved wind protection.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new favorite jacket This is my new go to jacket. I brought it with me on a Backcountry Discovery Route motorcycle ride. It packed down very small, was perfect under my jacket and for sitting around the campfire. It also looks great wearing around town. I haven't been in steady rain with it on, but it sheds light rain easily. I am 5'9", 175lbs with an athletic build. I ordered a medium and it fits like a glove.
