Sizing notes

All sizing is based on body measurements.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Workhorse Puffy This is my go to puffy. Its warm, durable, light, and compressible. I keep it in a small stuff sack, and its in my go to kit for everyday wear, three season alpine climbing, fall and spring belays, and cold cragging. In the course of year, its been all over the Cascades and Utah climbing, hiking, and hanging out in the pub for a post adventure pint. I have put it through the ringer, and the outer layer, while light, has held up amazingly. Ill pair it with my OR Helium II or a heavier shell depending upon wet conditions. When it has gotten soaked, it dried quickly using body heat. Best of of all it looks awesome with god lines and a non bulky fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warmth and be seen! Outdoor Research seems to have captured my attention with their Transcendent down cold weather gear.First of all,it's down of course,but then add this not so new color-lemongrass/evergreen.And you've got a warmth combination that can be seen from a distance and provide you with the warmth your body needs.Zippered hand pockets and napoleon chest pocket gives you enough storage for your valuables plus serving as a stuff sack when not in use.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great looking jacket but rips a bit easily. I bought this jacket before a camping trip. Nothing extreme but when I got back home I noticed it already ripped in several places.

I'm 6'5" and 230 LBS. Should I order an XL or XXL?

We recommend measuring your chest and comparing it to the size chart for the most accurate fit.
