Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fit too tight in the shoulders The jacket itself seems like a great piece. I am 5'8'', 145 lbs and wear a size small in pretty much every other jacket I have. This one is a good length both in body and sleeves, but the shoulders are super tight! Too tight to use in the outdoors. I thought it might just be my broad build, but gave it to a skinnier buddy to try and he commented on the same thing. The fit is just a little too funky... I would recommend the jacket itself, but don't expect it to fit like other brands without trying first.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Super light and breathable This is a nice jacket. It breaths very well and is light weight. It doesn't block much wind, but if it did, it probably wouldn't be as breathable. The Uber layer with a wind stopper shell or a goretex shell has been perfect for me so far. All my other insulation pieces are way too hot once I'm moving and generating heat. This piece keeps me the perfect temperature. My only critiques with the uberlayer is that it's not stretchy and it can get a little stinky. The trim fit is nice, but it can be slightly restrictive in the shoulders and chest sometimes. Not bad though. I'm a pretty big guy, so most clothing can get that way for me. I wore the uberlayer on a five day trip recently. On day two, I noticed a little body odor (not really normal for me). It didn't really get worse throughout the trip, but it made me wonder/ hope that this doesn't become one of those stinky synthetic garments. Overall, I'm very happy with this jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Just used myr uberlayer on a 10 mile hike and 40° weather with heavy winds in the Santa Cruz mountains. Worked like a charm keeping me warm but so breathable. Had to pair it With a windbreaker near the top of the mountain with the heavy winds. It certainly is a jacket you can leave on all day it's a breathable and warm when you need it. Now it's my perfect hiking jacket in cold weather. Just have to remember your windbreaker since it doesn't cut the wind much at all. Very happy with it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Truly Incredible Jacket This jacket was the best birthday gift I could have ever gotten myself! I got my Uberlayer this past week, and wore it to hike to the top of Sugarloaf peak at Alta on Friday. Holy amazing did it perform!!! Total wind blockage, and never once was I sweaty as I climbed 5,000 feet. Now I just want one in every color!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Jacket, a little tight in the chest Received the product in a colour other then specified in my order (received Red, ordered Blue). Other then that, I like the jacket so much that I've decided to keep it regardless of the colour. I am 6'3, 225lbs so not a small individual; the XL size has ideal sleeve length but is tighter in the chest area then expected. The fit is fine when wearing minimal under layers, but will definitely deny the ability to wear another sweater underneath.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Uberly awesome! I just got this thing, but I'm already excited to get some wear out of it. So far, it is warm, comfortable, and stylish. It breathes well. I wore it once commuting around town via walking and biking and didn't feel too cold or too sweaty as the day warmed up from 37degF to 52degF. Can't comment yet on the water resistance or the durability, but this jacket seems comparable in warmth and weight to down, with a tougher shell. I'm stoked to take it on some climbs, skis, and backpacks! Also, I'm 5'10" and 175lb. All of OR's Medium stuff fits me perfectly. This jacket looks as though it was made for me!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Stop with wire brimmed hood - Tragically Flawed I love everything about this jacket but the wire brimmed hood is a total deal breaker. The wire breaks so easy. I've broken multiple in this jacket and other OR jackets. Once it breaks the sharp end eats a hole in the tube the wire lives in. I'm super anal about never trying to form the wire in the hood because I'm worried it will break and just casual wear breaks the darn thing anyway. I know ORs awesome customer service will send me infinity replacements but I just want a jacket that will slowly wear out gracefully. Nothing aint cool tell you wear the new off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good looking and well designed jacket OR is my recent favorite adventure clothing company I North America. I purchased shirts ,pants and jacket and I noticed that fabric ,material ,designs are very high quality. I can't find a better company in Canada or US in this time. I minimized buying in Europe . PS. I'm winter cyclist and cross country skiing enthusiast ,this jacket will be good for very cold days here in Canada

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!
