Outdoor Research's popular Ferrosi Hooded Jacket has had some small improvements but hasn't lost it's award winning fabric or any it's key features that made it a super-light, super-stretchy softshell that's really comfortable to wear.
Outdoor Research says:
We wouldn't dare mess with the movement-mirroring soft shell durability of our Ferrosi fabric. After all, it's won awards, press recognition, and Gear of the Year medals season after season for its superb performance. Instead, we're putting hours of customer clinics and focus groups into effect with a revolutionized redesign of the Ferrosi Collection. Look out for a modern slim fit, reinforced durability in key wear areas, along with versatile features for quicker-than-ever transitions from street style to summit push. You asked, we answered - now go forth and put these adventure pieces to the test.
Outdoor Research's Ferrosi Hooded Jacket is one of those go-to garments that you find yourself using time and time again. It has been designed to be super comfortable with stretch fabric to defend you against wind and light rain whist adding a little extra warmth, especially with the hood.
This updated version still keeps it's award winning fabric but has been redesigned elsewhere with a more modern slim fit, reinforced durability in key high wear areas, functional climbing specific features and versatile design details that transition easily from street to summit.
It still looks great and works well over a t-shirt on warmer days or as an extra layer when the weather isn't looking great.
