Lightweight and durable, the Outdoor Research Women’s Aspire Jacket utilizes PFC-free GORE-TEX Paclite fabrication and fully taped seams to fend off moisture while offering maximum breathability.
Despite its hardshell protectiveness, the jacket’s fabric has an extremely soft “hand”. By using a PFC-free waterproof solution, the fabric diminishes environmental concern without sacrificing performance. The fabric is also highly breathable, but built in TorsoFlo side zips maximize ventilation with two-way zippers that run from the bicep to the hem of the jacket and allow built-up heat to escape. This feature also allows for poncho-style ventilation if you pass your backpack's waistbelt underneath the jacket, allowing you maintain maneuverability without jeopardizing the jacket's waterproof protection or your own comfort. A fully-adjustable hood extends weather protection. Adjustable elastic cuffs and an elastic drawcord hem help to enhance fit.
Other features include an internal front stormflap behind the two-way front zipper, an internal key clip, a built-in carabiner loop, a zippered external chest pocket, and two zippered hand pockets. The hand pockets are set high so you can access them even if you are wearing a backpack and the left pocket also doubles as a stuff sack for the jacket.
Available in your choice of size and color options, the Outdoor Research Women’s Aspire Jacket has a standard fit that leaves room for baselayers in warmer temperatures or lightweight insulation or mid layers in colder weather.
