Perfect Everyday Hoody
5'7" and 128 lbs -- ordered the size small in November 2012. Fit: I want to talk about the fit first because I love the fit. The hemline falls just below my belt. With my arms down by my side, the sleeve falls just below my wrist and above my knuckles. The shoulders hit exactly at the shoulders and the armpit is cut high for an athletic fit. Meaning I have full range of motion with my arms without the sleeves "lifting" the body of the hoody or having excess material from the body of the hoody sagging on my arms, off the shoulder. The hood also has a slim profile so your peripheral vision isn't blocked. It also has adjustable draw cords and the front zipper zips high enough so that wind is kept out and doesn't billow off in a strong gust. Yet it's roomy enough to wear a watchcap underneath. And when you push it off, the hood folds flat all on it's own without any manipulation. I think it is because of the paneled construction. When on, the hood forms to the natural contours of your head and doesn't have a peak like a dunce cap. The outside has a wool texture that isn't silky smooth like a cotton blend fleece, but it makes it tougher while still keeping you warm in a light drizzle or snow. It's a more rugged alternative that I think will keep it's shape better and last much longer. And because the interior is made of a soft polyester blend, it's soft and pleasure to wear with just a light t-shirt. Even the pockets are lined with this soft material for your hands. And the way the body panels are thought out and stitched, it has a flattering form that will stay put the way you put it on even when layering under another jacket. It will not turn or bunch up under a jacket. Zippers are high quality and silky smooth. And it's easy to line up the teeth and zip up even without looking. And even zipping up while sitting, the interior will not catch on the zipper. The two interior pockets (one long map pocket and a smaller pocket with a button clasp) are made of a very strong smooth nylon material. Larger pocket is perfect for a map or gloves. The smaller pocket is perfect size for holding an iPhone. It's easy to slip in and out and it holds it in place with no extra room (so that it doesn't flop around when jogging with the phone in this pocket). Both interior pockets are on the left side so you can access it easily with one right hand. (Good for righties.) A very well engineered hoody that's quickly become my favorite hoody I've ever purchased. Thank you Altrec and thank you Outdoor Research.
Nice Hoody !
The OR hoody is quite nice. I've had it for about a year now and it has good quality construction throughout. It's much warmer than fleece alone and doesn't "get thin" with wear like fleece does. The fleece lining does provide excellent warmth and the wool exterior is not itchy, and the tight knit of the wool helps to keep the heat in and the elements out. The hood fits snugly and when not in use actually forms somewhat of a collar that helps keep the back of my neck warm. The garment also has a much sleeker fit than fleece or a puffy down sweater. Pockets all well positioned and numerous. Thumb holes give sleeves some extra length which I like. Aside from technical aspects it is also "stylish" enough for casual wear around town. Although the hem sits close to the body, a drawstring might be a nice addition. Overall, a very versatile piece.
This jacket is very well made and is very warm. On 30 degree mornings with a base layer under it kept me just the right temperature. I have got several positive comments about what a nice jacket.
