Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly as Advertised I wanted to review this product to address some of the other reviews. This jacket is not flimsy - it is lightweight- by design. The lining is warm & nice against skin or base layer. It does what it is designed to do & does it well. After ascending several thousand feet in cold temps(single digits), I don't overheat in this jacket. I usually pull out a puffy at the top, but this jacket retains my body heat well. Well made, durable piece that will work well in a variety of conditions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Handles walks in 3 degree Weather! Picked this jacket up for layered cold weather climbing adventures and it handles so well for so many other activities! I have yet to use it while winter biking, but I'm sure it could keep me warm then as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE THIS JACKET!!! I love this jacket! I wore it backcountry skiing and it shed snowflakes and kept me warm. It's stretch too. I got a medium, I'm 135 lbs and 5'4". Fits great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This jacket is amazing I use this jacket as a top layer for cross-country skiing (classic & skate in trackset), and as a mid-layer for ice climbing and ski touring. I am very impressed with how warm it is for the weight, and how well it evacuates moisture. Well done OR!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfortable and warm, but a couple large flaws I bought this as an alternative to the micropuff (my reference being the Patagonia NanoPuff from 4 years ago). My micropuff gets pretty clammy when cold and has lost some loft over the years, getting a bit more chilly even in active use. I am not a fleece fan, but the description of the Ascendant jacket appealed to me since I wanted a jacket I could throw on over short sleeves without the clammy feel of my micropuff. Unfortunately, the first major flaw of the jacket is a giant scratchy seam along the inside of the sleeve. I don't notice it as much as I thought I would when I first tried it on, but it would be better if the seam were minimized (it really sticks out). The second major flaw is the lack of zippers on the pockets. Women's pants (even outdoors ones) don't always have generous (or any) pockets. This is a major loss when I carry my daypack (a non-issue when I have my backpacking pack on with its generous hip belts). Also a loss for wearing it around the house or out to a bar. I don't want my phone to fall out! It does have a zippered chest pocket, but I already have two large things up there, and don't really want to add to the bulk in that area if I can help it. That being said, the cut is nice (sleeves are too long for me, but I have short limbs) and although the fleece is its own sort of "micro"--not very plush--it is a comfortable jacket. I was tempted to return it when I first tried it on and realized the huge issues, but it is super comfy and hopefully I'll find other places to store my phone. I haven't tested it in real cold weather yet, but I based on everyday wear I expect it to perform as well or slightly better than my old micropuff.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this hoody I wear this hoody on hikes, out around town and as a layering piece. I really love the way it fits and how breathable it is. I will probably buy another in a different colour :)
