The Women's Aspire Jacket from Outdoor Research is weatherproof, breathable, lightweight and ec ofriendly. Made from all-new waterproof and PFC (EC)-Free GORE-TEX


Making your rainy days a lot brighter, the waterproof, breathable and lightweight Outdoor Research Aspire women's jacket keeps you dry and comfortable on outdoor adventures.


Light on weight, completely waterproof, and perfectly packable--there's no reason not to toss the Outdoor Research Aspire Jacket into your pack for any and all adventures. You'll love its breathable and easy-to-vent weather protection on backcountry ski adventures, extended backpacking treks, and long multi-pitch climbs alike. Designed with Gore-Tex Paclite technology, this lightweight shell delivers total waterproof protection without the bulk, and now features a more environmentally friendly DWR (Durable Water Repellent) that's free of PFCs of environmental concern. When you're heating up on the trail or skin track, you've got custom ventilation with OR's TorsoFlo venting system. The zipper runs all the way from the hem to bicep, so you can open it from the top as a standard underarm zip, from the bottom to wear it poncho-style over your pack waist strap, or a little of both to vent however you see fit. Its left hand pocket doubles as a stuff sack so you can pack it down easily when conditions calm down and dry off, and has a carabiner loop to easily clip onto a backpack or climbing harness.
