Product Description

Warm, compressible and incredibly lightweight, the Transcendent Hoody is built to keep you comfortably insulated when the temperature drops, then stuff away into a corner of your pack when not needed.

The hoody's high-quality 650 down fill insulation keeps you cozy during cross-country rambles or when you're huddled at camp, yet stows neatly for uphill slogs. For multi-day treks, it packs down so small you'll have a hard time not finding space to bring it along.

Color Name: Pewter/EmberSize Name: Small Verified Purchase
I'll start with some measurables to help prospective buyers out first. I am 5'6" 145 and picked up a small. I have a climbing/swimming background and had no problem with shoulder room or rotation. Length is perfect too. It has enough room for layering as well. Temp wise I have been comfortable at 30 degrees while only wearing a t-shirt under this. I wore a t-shirt, microfleece, and then this for a 16 degree night and still felt good while walking around. It blocks wind very well and the inner material is comfortable (not sticky or bunchy) if you are wearing it over short sleeves. The hood tends to fall down on me unless I have a hat on, or it is fully zipped. Not a real problem though. I bought the pewter/ember color and it looked exactly as it did online. I highly recommend this.

I am an avid outdoorsman and backpacker and I needed a super compressible and very warm jacket that would protect me on long, all day hikes in the mountains, or huddled by the campfire at night. The Outdoor Research Transcendent hoody is the answers to all my needs.
I was concerned to order this jacket online without trying it on first, I am a stocky guy with a larger chest and I had read reviews that said a large would fit or a medium would probably fit my body type. I wanted it to be snug and to not have any dead air space, so I got the Medium.
Perfect fit! I am 6'0", 180lb, and it is like it was made just for me.
I have already put this thing through the ringer and took it out with me on multiple occasions bushwhacking through the high desert, climbing snowy ridges, and overall, a great jacket to wear to work, or just running around town.
Bottom line: Buy it.

I'm 5'8", 155lbs and athletically built (36-38S jacket and 31"-32" waist). The small fits quite well, but it's a little snug and probably built for skinny frames. Do not buy a Small if your waist is >32". That said, Comfortable and sufficient for my recent photography adventures, but I probably couldn't make the cut for Ninja try-outs.

I've owned the jacket for around a month and found it to be pretty awesome in temperatures ranging from 35-60F. It doesn't get too hot wearing it indoors (70F), and it has kept me warm walking around for an hour or two in ~35F temperatures. If you're going to spend more than an hour outside in those temperatures (not doing anything athletic, mind you), then I would recommend an extra thermal layer. In the low-mid 20's, I needed a fleece and/or a fleece-lined thermal. Wind protection seemed quite sufficient but I'd add a shell for anything over 15-20mph.

The hood is clutch and provides a shocking amount of warmth, so I would highly recommend this jacket over a non-hooded version.

My biggest annoyance so far has been the shedding of feathers, but this was probably amplified on my recent trek to Europe by the fact that I almost always wore a lightweight BLACK fleece underneath it (which I did not wash!). So basically every feather stuck to it and I looked like a homeless person. Speaking of lost feathers, the arm sleeves near my inner elbows seem to have lost some heft and are not nearly as thick as the chest area, only one month later.

I highly recommend this jacket at $150 and below. Would not recommend over $160.

UPDATE - one year later, the jacket is still kicking. It's my go-to when the weather dips below 45.

Color Name: Pewter/EmberSize Name: Medium Verified Purchase
I use this in CO for climbing 13ers and 14ers round the year. It's a great jacket, it packs down well, and is very warm. It's replaced my extra layers during the summer months, and is a great layer to use over a few layers in the winter months (depending on how cold it is outside). I've been on top of peaks where the windchill was down into the single digits and this jacket has kept me plenty warm (almost too warm while ascending). With the right layers underneath you can probably use this down jacket below zero.

Good:
Pockets are extremely warm. Very pleased with how fast my hands warm up in the pockets.
Hood tightens down nicely.
Cuts wind up to 50 MPH gusts well.
Packs down well.
Very warm.
Good value, as good as other similar jackets but more affordable.
Hood.

The problems:
Pockets are too low, a hip belt on most backpacks interferes with your ability to access the outside pockets. The jacket's a bit long on me, so I can pull it up to access the pockets, but it would be nice if the pockets were higher.
Pit zips would be nice. I can't always stop to take off the jacket, and it can get too warm at times.
Doesn't pack down as well as 800 fill down (of course).

Pros: Very stylish, light and thin, high-quality workmanship (think Patagonia or high-end North Face) throughout, very easy to pack 'n go.

Cons: Tried it on in a 40 degree day and it felt just right. Was hoping that it would be warm enough to wear below 32 degrees given it's a 80% goose down with a 650 fill. Nope, would have to wear a (thick) fleece underneath.

Conclusion: at a right price, highly recommend.
