User Review: Outdoor Research Transcendent Sweater
Price Paid: $115
This is a great jacket! If you are looking for an insulating layer then look no further but there are a few things that could be improved upon, which is why I give it a 4/5.
1) The pockets seem to have been an afterthought for OR. They only have fleece lining on one side and it is on the side against down which leaves your hands to catch a draft from the unprotected side of the pocket. Hopefully that makes sense.
2) The only down products that I have experience with are sleeping bags and this jacket leaks enough down to leave a feather on me just about every time I mention it. It isn't enough to hurt anything but it is annoying and it makes me wonder how long I have before a lot of down is gone and the insulation is affected.
