Reviews - Outdoor Research Men's Axiom Jacket
Very Lightweight, Active, and Waterproof!
An incredible jacket. The Gore-Tex Active Shell provides great mobility. With excellent water protection and streamlined features this is an easy choice for lightweight, active water protection. I read other reviews referencing a snug waist. I did not find this. I am 6', 165lbs and 31" waist. I always wear a medium (which is what I wear in this jacket). I can comfortably wear 2-3 layers under the jacket.
My Go-To Jacket
I've worn this jacket - and its prototype - since June and it has quickly become my go-to jacket. That's the jacket that I grab 80% of the time, and have to justify replacing it with something else. I've skied big multi-day tours and climbed long alpine routes in this jacket, and it has a degree of ventilation and stretch that I never thought possible with a Gore-Tex fabric. I'm really looking forward to using it this winter skiing.
My Axiom Jacket doesn't weigh a thing, doesn't feel like a a plastic bag, packs down into nothing and just lives in my pack.. and the thing is stretchy! This is a sweet little hardshell.
