DWR (Durable Water Repellent) is a coating that is applied to fabrics which makes them water-resistant, or hydrophobic. A DWR finish doesn't interfere with breathability, which makes it perfect for adverse conditions in the backcountry.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Used to be 5 stars I used to love everything about the older model jackets but the new updates I'm not to fond of. First thing I don't like is that the main zipper has been changed, from what looks like a cheaper a zipper. the older zippers had a little cover over the zippers to protect it from debris, new ones don't, they also don't feel as smooth. I really liked the zippers on the older models and to see them go a cheaper route upsets me. Last thing are the cuffs, for some reason they decided to move the elastic portion of the cuff so that its now on the outside portion of your wrist instead of the inside making the elastic visible to the eye and taking away from the jackets aesthetics.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most used piece of equipment this winter I bought this for backcountry skiing and it has outperformed my expectations in every way. I run pretty average heat-wise and wear my Ferrosi jacket and a wicking layer as my only clothing on top between 30⁰ and 15⁰ F. It does such a great job at heat regulation and wind resistance that you never want to take it off. I cannot speak to the durability of the item as I have only used it around 30 days but my other OR gear has survived countless offwidth while other gear busts on the first climb. Lastly for fit, it is perfect (6'2" 170lbs) it also looks super nice. 10/10 recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tougher than I thought This jacket preformed super well on an early spring orienteering race. Loads of light precipitation, heavy bushwhacking, and cool temperatures. Climbing through trees, I felt that the jacket was durable and never had the impression that I needed to go around anything. I wouldn't want to drag this through a thorn bush but the jacket definitely fits the bill for a no-nonsense light soft shell that can take a beating. Great breathability and good enough in light rain. We'll see how it performs after a few washes...but there is always the option of adding more DWR. Thanks for the tough duds that are just loose enough to layer an insulated mid-layer underneath.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from New Design is Flawed - Return to Old Design Please! Just received my new Ferrosi Hooded Jacket to compliment my existing collection. Really surprised and disappointed to see that the chest pocket is much smaller on this new version compared to my older versions - My Iphone 7 Plus no longer fits in the chest pocket on the new jacket, but easily fit on the prior versions. I also noticed that the main zipper on the new version is plastic instead of the nylon (nylon zippers are still used on the chest and hand pockets) - the plastic zippers cannot self repair if snagged. PLEASE BRING BACK THE OLD DESIGN with a larger chest pocket and the nylon main zipper! My Ferrosi jackets have been nearly an everyday part of life for me over the last few years, and unfortunately, the new version is just terrible with respect to those two aspects.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the perfect lightweight, summer windbreaker. I am 6'1" and 180 lbs. The fit works for me, being slightly loose, allowing free and easy movement, as well as room for layering. The sleeves seem a little long, but that makes sense if you use the thumb holes - which is a feature I rarely use. As it is, the longish sleeve length also allows room for movement - so not a problem. The fabric is clearly durable, but light and breathable. I have only worm it in a light, misty rain, for which it was perfect. I know it will not stand up to any significant rainfall, but that is not what I bought this for. This is a great throw-on jacket for cool weather hikes, camp chores, etc. The stitching is great. I have no doubts I will be using this jacket for many years. A quality product from a very reliable outdoor clothing company.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love It! A year ago I purchased some men's ferrosi jeans here on the OR website. Those jeans did an awesome job through a ton of pretty rough terrain over a ton of hiking miles! I figured the jacket would be worth checking out. And yes, it is! While I haven't yet put a lot of miles on it, so to speak, I can say it is exactly as advertised. The large fits like other larges fit me. And the material is tough, stretchy, not too heavy, and breathable. It works on cool days - I've worn it on a 45 degree day with just a wool t-shirt underneath. But it is also decent on a 60 degree day! All in all this is a great outdoor jacket that is also tough as nails.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Please Bring Back Old Design Prior versions of this jacket were spectacular! Just received the newest version and am very disappointed in key design changes. First, the chest pocket size has diminished substantially and no longer comfortably fits my phone- my prior versions had plenty of room in the chest pocket- why did you change the design to make it so small? Please consider bringing the roomy chest picket back!!! Second, the main zipper is now a cheap plastic, including the slider which is also now a cheap small plastic version- my prior versions of this jacket had the self repair nylon zippers with a metal slider, which have proven very durable over the years! Its interesting that the new jacket has good zippers on the pockets but not the main zipper!! Please consider returning all zippers on this jacket to the more durable self repairing zippers with the metal sliders!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cheap Plastic Zippers I have happily used this style for years (I currently own three others) and wanted to add a bright yellow one to compliment my road cycling adventures. However, I was very disappointed to see when my new jacket arrived today that the current version uses a cheaper less viable plastic zipper for the front main zipper instead of the tried and true nylon coil YKK zipper - really Outdoor Research? You save maybe $2-$3 dollars on your production cost per unit to replace a traditional and proven self healing nylon coil zipper with a rigid plastic one? When one of those plastic teeth breaks, or more importantly, when the plastic retaining box or insert pin gets damaged (which frequently happens with the plastic zippers), the jacket becomes useless - Very very very disappointing.... Although I understand the need to stay competitive and try and find new ways to cut costs through your supply, marketing, and sales chains, however, this change in design results in an inferior product. Go back to the drawing board and get rid of the plastic zippers!!!!
