User Review: Outdoor Research Men's Alibi Jacket

Super breathable. Non-restrictive, well ventilated if needed.
- Ventilation zippers
- Flexible stretch
- I haven't found any yet.
I scored the jacket on geartrade for a steal. Brand new. However, I feel it is worth the $260. I have worn it general mountaineering in the Northeast. Right away I noticed how breathable it was...all I had on under it was a midweight EMS base layer. I burn hot and and heat up quick...on the ascent.
There was only a few times that I felt that I need to unzip the pit zips/side zips, which is also another great feature. One thing I love about it is its stretch. It never restricted my movement in anyway. Not even when I gained enough weight to qualify as an overstuffed sausage. It still wore comfortable.
It sheds moisture really well. Unless there was a downpour or an absolute dumping of very wet snow, it kept me dry the whole day. It also excelled at ice climbing...again the stretch coming in to play. Excellent jacket!
