User Review: Outdoor Research Transcendent Hoody
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $199
I recently bought a new down jacket made by OR Outdoor Research, the men's Transcendent Hoody. I bought it both for looks and warmth. I ride my bicycle to work every morning 6 miles. When it's quite cold (was 22 yesterday at 6 am when I did) with a wind chill of about 7 degrees biking at 20 mph it kept me very warm.
I bought the color called Lemongrass with Evergreen color inside.
I recommend it for both style and comfort.
- It has two large zippered hand pockets outside and a left chest large zippered pocket too.
- The waist and hood have drawstrings that tighten both for around the head/face and waist.
- The cuffs are cut snug and its front main zipper is windproof.
- I have found no weaknesses in the jacket so far.
I bought the OR Transcendent Hoody about a month ago from their online store. I got it mainly right at first for keeping me warm on my daily bicycle ride to work early in the mornings when it's cold outside and the wind chill is colder as I move through the air.
It has both a drawstring waist and also one around the hood to hold it around the edges of my face. There are tow large hand pockets with zippers that pull up to close making it easier to close the pockets with ease. And there is a left breast pocket large enough to hold other items with a easy pull zipper as well. The cuffs on the wrists are cut fairly well to help hold out the cold there very good.
The front main zipper has a windproof backing. The whole jacket holds away the air from passing through.
I have yet to be cold in it and it does seem to vent fairly well keeping me from overheating in it.
In the month I have been wearing it, the jacket has been a warm, desirable item to wear when I cycle to work.
