Outdoor Research's Refuge Air Insulated Hooded Jacket is a really versatile go to layer providing weather resistance, insulation and great thermo regulation in a light-weight and packable garment.
Outdoor Research says: Injected with thermo-regulating Insulation Type with supreme breathability and moisture management.
When you’re worried about retaining warmth when you’re working hard, and sweating hard, the Refuge Air Hooded Jacket is your solution. Fittingly named after its VerticalX™ Air technology, the Refuge Air uses adaptable insulation that keeps you warm when you need it, and rapidly moves moisture the moment you start to perspire. Each Refuge piece is also amplified by ActiveTemp™, another thermo-regulating technology that keeps you cool, dry, and comfortable during high-exertion activities. Water-resistant and resilient against harsh climates, the Refuge Hooded Jacket combines the best of weather protective ruggedness with lightweight compressibility that packs into its own pocket.
Outdoor Research's Refuge Air Insulated Hooded Jacket is designed to be your go to layer for the active user. The jacket is built around VerticalX Air technology which provides exceptional breathability and moisture management as well as great insulating properties (think Polartec Alpha).
The Pertex Quantum Air outer gives great light-weight weather resistance. Features wise you have 2 zipped hand warmer pockets and a chest pocket. The jacket packs away into the left pocket with integrated clip in loop. The hood is comfortable and close fitting. The elasticated wrist cuffs have tiny thumb loops to keep sleeves in place when layering or wearing gloves.
