"Outstanding piece for cold weather hiking/climbing"
Wore this for a week-long mountaineering school, and for a Rainier climb. Great as a cold weather outer layer during periods of high activity (down to the 20s), or as a mid-layer. Very light, great warmth-to-weight ratio. It pills a bit after heavy use, but that doesn't affect the functionality. The zippers are a bit flimsy - bear that in mind when wearing heavier gloves, but it does save weight. This has become my favorite cold weather hiking/climbing piece.
I am using this hoody for more than a year now after I have bought it directly at the OR-shop in Seattle. Well, it is nicely made and fits well, however the fabric is thinner than you would expect, so it served well as a mid-layer but not more.Overall it is a nice jacket but overpriced IMO.
