Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Awesome Jacket This is a fantastic jacket. It's become my go-to shell for cool to cold weather and all backcountry skiing, with my Helium being my summer ultralight shell. This jacket breaths fantastically, fits really comfortably, and allows for free movement. It is relatively light considering its durability and has all of the features that you want in backcountry skiing, with none of the ones that you don't. The hem to bicep zips are one of my favorite features of any jacket. I'm 6'5" and about 200# and the XL (as with most OR gear) fits me really well.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from More "Outdoor Research" Needed. Get it? This jacket would be great, if when you opened both chest pockets you found a one-hundred dollar bill. In a video I watched about this jacket, it fits like a soft-shell but performs like a hard-shell. It says on the tag it's air permeable, which I don't 100% like based on the amount of side ventilation via zippers. The chest pockets are a stretchy netting, and so are the pockets which Skins can go in on the left and right interior of the jacket. Maybe it's my eyes, but in person Black/Tahoe (the black) looks more dark navy than black. Again, maybe just me. The hood can be tightened and loosened via a draw cord on the left and right, but the end of the draw cords are inside the jacket rather than the outside (could be a plus or minus depending on what you prefer). The Tahoe color zipper stands out far to much for my liking. Draw cords on the hood, logo, the two lines on the front which I think should be removed, and other accents and around the bottom interior are also Tahoe color. Made in Bangladesh. I wear a size Large in an Arc'teryx Beta AR and an XL in an Arc'teryx Alpha FL. The Skyward XL fits me, but they're all slim fit and I couldn't add anything more than a base-layer under any of them. The arms are long, which I happen to like if I were wearing a pack with this jacket. In the end, I'm returning this jacket and wearing a short-sleeve shirt in the rain, because the color, style, I would be cold in this jacket, I'm tough and most gear I buy isn't. It is what it is.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the nicest jacket I have ever owned. Jacket is great, it's lightweight, warm, and keeps the wind out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Shell Ever I'm not quite sure what to say about this jacket. It's my first piece of OR gear and it was what lead me to converting literally my entire outdoor wardrobe to OR gear. After experimenting with a few different types of "waterproof" and "breathable" technologies outside of GoreTex, I came to the conclusion that I needed to go back to GoreTex as nothing was ever going to be AS good. During my search for a new winter shell, I came across the OR Skyward. The Jacket looked good at first, but then I realized it wasn't GoreTex, so it was a no go. I didn't trust whatever this AscentShell thing was. Even so, after reading a handful of reviews, it seemed like it might be worth trying out. I've worn this thing in the rain and the snow. In negative temps and temps above freezing. I've done strenuous activities in it and just sat around. It is an unbelievable piece of gear. My favorite piece of gear I own. If you are on the fence about this jacket, you shouldn't be, it's flat out awesome.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Perfect Shell I've been wanting to write a review on this jacket for a long time, but keep putting it off because I wanted to write one that this jacket "deserved". I'll never have time to do that, so this will have to suffice. This jacket is what sold me with Outdoor Research. I never thought anybody would ever be able to develop anything that would beat Gore-Tex, but I believe this new AscentShell membrane might be just that. I was completely blown away with how waterproof this thing was, yet being breathable. I was in the pouring rain for 4 hours and stayed dry. I'm 5'8" and 160 lbs and the medium fits me well.
