Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect active wear jacket This is highly recommended for use as active wear in cold conditions. Note: This is movement wear and has limitations as static wear. This jacket is highly breathable and provides adequate insulation when generating internal heat. I used this climbing over Thorung La Pass (17,769') and it was perfect over a zip Tneck and baselayer when pre-dawn temps were low 20s. Throwing on a windbreaker during stops was all I needed. Also perfect for XC and BC skiing. It is stylish enough that it gets daily use as casual wear. A great complement to the outdoorsman's clothing quiver!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great Jacket- just not for the purpose we needed LOVED the color of this jacket- which is what drew my son to it in the first place and if we were looking for a casual jacket to wear everyday between home and school this would be it. Unfortunately we were in the market for a jacket he could wear skiing and this was just not it. It would require the purchase of a waterproof shell to wear over it and it didn't look warm enough to handle a Eastern ice and wind day at the top of Sugarloaf! This might be the perfect coat for a warm, sunny March day- but was too expensive to keep around for only occasional wear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Fall/Spring Jacket for East Tennessee Weather This jacket has quickly become a favorite for cool, fall/spring weather here in East Tennessee. It stays comfortable from mid 30s to mid 60s with a t-shirt and much cooler weather by simply adding a quality mid-layer. The jacket's breathability is outstanding. The fit is great, as it is not baggy or restricting. I purchased the large and my measureables are 6'1" at 187lbs, athletic build. If there was anything to dislike, and this is reaching, would be that the rim at the top of the interior pockets are noticeable against the skin when wearing a thin shirt and the jacket is zipped. This is not by any means a serious issue and wouldn't even be noticeable were it not for how unbelievably comfortable this jacket is overall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect active winter jacket? I knew I loved this jacket as soon I received it but it has since surpassed all expectations. The breathability and protection from the elements is perfect for northern Minnesota winters on Lake Superior. If it's very cold and windy I simply layer underneath it. The real test came during a snowy 8 mile trek along the Canadian border. I was wearing a t-shirt baselayer, an ascendant jacket, and my uberlayer over top. The temperature was a cold 15 degrees f with 10-20mph winds as I kept a good pace trudging through snow up ridges and along rivers. I found myself far too hot, actually sweating, wearing both my ascendant jacket and my uberlayer so I shed the ascendant. As long as I was remaining active, the uberlayer kept me a perfect temperature during the entire hike. I can see this being a phenomenal 3-season jacket here in the upper-reaches of the midwest where the summers are short and hot and the winters are brisk. I'm 5'8" and 150lbs. The medium fits nicely with plenty of room to layer beneath.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great, comfy and light This is my second one of these jackets. Price has crept up over the last year I've had it but this has been a go to layering piece and I really enjoy it. A bit heavier and not as cush as the equivalent Patagonia piece but this one has held up to wear and tear better and also doesn't show the dirt constantly. Love the storage pockets. It is definitely a lighter jacket that's breathable enough to wear under moderate activity on it's own. Sitting around in the cold it's probably not enough. I'm 5'9", 165lbs, 38"chest, 15" neck and a medium fits great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really the perfect layer For those who do not know what "uber" means, here is a description. " denoting an outstanding or supreme example of a particular kind of person or thing." This is truely the uberlayer everyone needs. I have been wanting to put it to the test and I was lucky enough to have pretty much every weather possible. Here in Montreal, it has rained, snowed, been over 0°C and under -5°C. The uberlayer has managed to conquer all of the above. I have hiked with the Uberlayer with just a t-shirt underneath in -10 °C weather with large gusts of wind and never have I felt I needed to put another piece of clothing to keep me warm. For those who say this is not windproof, it is meant to be a breathable technical layer so it is possible that with very stong gusts of wind you will feel a light breeze but I have yet to find a flaw. I am 6'0" and weight 180lbs (athletic build) and the large fits PERFECTLLY. I have enough room to wear a bulky hoody underneath without feeling restricted. The sleeve lenght arrives near my thumb ends which in my opinion is the perfect lenght for someone that moves around.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Appropriately named This is my Uber favorite jacket! I wear this thing nearly every day, work or play. It is warm like a puffy without the bulk. I love the features it has such as water resistance, stuff pockets, key loop, etc. Fantastic jacket and worth every penny. Fit is a little snug through the chest (I find this to be the case with OR's trim fit sizing), so if you do not like the restricted feeling through the chest, you may want to size up. I am between Small and Medium in OR clothing at 5' 7" 155lbs (38 chest) and went with a medium here.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The Uberlayer (no more needs to be said) I love the Uberlayer - material is top notch. I find that its perfect for high aerobic activities aka that run at 30 degrees F. It is the answer to right amount of warm while not being to hot. It is the answer you are looking for. I also use this as a laying piece for dry suit diving. IE. The fabric works well while being compressed. I will saw its my thought process that I think the hood should be fit for a head - not a helmet. I would love to be able to wear the hood with this bad boy starting off on my run and pop it off when I start to warm up but the hood as it is now is too droopy for trail running. This is not a major issue, just a nit pick.

How does the Uberlayer Hooded Jacket differ from Ferrosi Hoody?

Asked by: Sean
Thanks for the question! The main difference is that the Ferrosi is just a softshell, while the Uberlayer is an insulated softshell with Polartec Alpha insulation. Both are water-resistant, while the Uberlayer is also windproof. They both offer the same amount of breath-ability and have a Regular fit. The Ferrosi will be more abrasion-resistant, but the Uberlayer offers helmet compatibility. I would say the Ferrosi was designed more for climbing & day hiking, while the Uberlayer is more for casual winter use & skiing. It really comes down to the features you are looking for and the conditions you will be in. Hope this helps a little!
