The Outdoor Research Men's Ascendant Hoody is an insulated softshell that regulates your body temperature during cool to cold weather pursuits. The stretchy Pertex Microlight exterior accommodates your full range of motion without causing any bunching or riding up, and also keeps the insulation properly lofted. On the inside, a plush and highly breathable Polartec® Alpha® lining traps body heat while preventing sweat build-up and overheating. This design keeps you dry, warm and comfortable without needing to stop and swap layers on the move. Offering all-season versatility, this jacket is a great option as a standalone piece or midlayer, and excels during high-output activities like cross-country skiing or ice climbing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Go to for for active insulation, makes me want snow The fit and movement is great. Snug without binding at all. Great on the chilly, early morning approach or heading out to dawn yoga. So far I've only had it in spring. But I think it will be great in the snow when my puffy is just to warm for active ski and snowshoe trails. It's as light as my puffy and packs down small.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Jacket! I haven't had it for too long but I love the fit of this jacket and how lightweight it is. It seems to be very breathable in warmer weather, but haven't yet had freezing temperatures to test out its warmth. So far so good. I have several friends with the same coat who recommended it to me as they love it too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great light weight insulation Put this hoody on and you won't take it off. Very comfy, lots of warmth for how thin it is, has a bit of wind protection, and seems to breathe well. Awesome for layering, too light for a stand alone jacket in cold weather. Overall, very pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great midlands for high aerobics This is my second Uber Layer. Even though the chest is a little tighter than the normal sizes, I needed the second one for the additional color option.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from jacket love I first liked this jacket since it is so comfortable but fell in love with it for its performance. Even on strenuous approaches where you are stopping and going this jacket kept me warm when we stopped since it dumps heath so well. It is very compressible as well for the warmth it provides.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Jacket! This jacket is amazing! I was looking back through some reviews I have done in the past and surprised that I haven't wrote about this jacket. I live in Colorado and have this jacket on non stop. I spend a lot of time out in the mountains and also hiking and this is always my go to layer. When everyone else is throwing on layer after layer at the trailhead I start with this jacket and a base layer and usually never have to change layers for most of the day. The fit is great and it is stylish enough to also wear around town. I have included a recent picture going up the Cristo Couloir recently and this jacket stayed on all day during a spring snow climb out here in Colorado. Amazing jacket which is on par for most every product I have purchased from OR. If you need a versatile jacket then this would be a go to item!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprising stout, lightweight I've been slightly surprised at how awesomely versatile this jacket is. It excels in all kinds of precipitation, and is warm, but never overheating. It's also reasonably lightweight and packable. It's not nearly as bulky as it appears on the website, and it's not a single, do-it-all layer (i.e., it needs some layering underneath if it's super cold out, or if you're not going to be moving. I've worn it in the backcountry while it's nuking heavy snow, and in the desert between pitches at the crag, and it's great for everything in between. I haven't had it for long, so I can't speak to its durability, but it seems well put together. Good stuff, OR.

Is the Ascendant Hoody that is on sale on this page (Item No. 3765653, Black, Large) the first generation of this jacket? - i.e., with curved front pockets and slightly tougher outer material? Or is it the second generation, with straight front pockets?

Asked by: robby
Hey robby! All sizes of the Black/Tahoe color are the Spring 2018 Model. Hope this helps!
