Outdoor Research uses the tagline “Designed by Adventure” and it certainly seems to hold true in the Ferrosi Hoody.
The Ferris Hoody is a bit lighter weight than a softshell jacket. That makes it perfect for aerobic activities when it’s warm or everyday wear in the shoulder seasons. I’m wearing it in the snow in the video above where I’m on the cold side, but if I was actively climbing, running or skiing, it’d be a perfect match.
For climbers, the Ferrosi Hoody is abrasion-resistant so don’t worry about scraping it on the rock. It’s also wind and water resistant so don’t let that bad weather deter you. Aside from the snow, I’ve also worn it in light rain and the water rolled right off.
It’ll stretch with you so don’t be afraid to take it out for that spring ski tour or yoga on those cool mornings.
