As its name suggests, the Outdoor Research Men’s Uberlayer Hooded Jacket offers excellent versatility that lets its take the place of any number of separate layers. A quick-drying synthetic insulation keeps you warm when temperatures dip low but sheds heat when the mercury rises.
The jacket has a 30D Nylon stretch woven wind-and-water-resistant exterior with a polyester stretch mesh lining. Imbedded between those two layers is innovative Polartec Hi-Pile Alpha insulation. The insulation is highly-compressible and weather-resistant.
Low-profile Lycra cuffs, a drawcord hem, and an adjustable wire-brimmed helmet-compatible hood enable you to tweak the fit of the jacket.
Other features include a double-separating front zipper, two zippered handwarmer pockets, a small zippered chest pocket, and two internal Shove-It pockets.
Available in your choice of size and color options, the Outdoor Research Men’s Uberlayer Hooded Jacket has a trim, athetic fit.

Real Customer Reviews
- Warmer than fleece, super hood
Likes: Fitted. Broader chest, narrower waist. I normally wear M (5'10", 155 lbs, 40 chest, 32 waist) and this size fits very well over a single base layer with enough room to move and twist. Ample armpit holes and sleeves. Long hem. No riding up. Smooth and durable exterior fabric. The hood is roomy and adjustable with just enough brim to shield the face and eyes. Tall front collar. Wonderful.
Dislikes: Diagonal quilted style, prefer more traditional, angular stitch lines, but not bad looking. The grey non-fabric trim around the zippers is not functional and not stylish.
- expensive, couldnt find a size that fit
Dislikes: looks, medium way too small, large still didn't fit shoulders. i wear a medium in marmot and a large in arcteryx.
- Great insulating layer!
Likes: Fit is nice and trim. Awesome breathability. Hem and sleeve length are good for me (6'1" 175 lb.) Great looking jacket - "Baltic" is a nice blue.
Dislikes: Wish it had a DWR coating.
- Outdoor Research Uberlayer Insulated Hooded Jacket
Likes: Perfect combination of stretch (freedom of movement), trim fit (style), layerability (sort of a word, I googled it), and temperature regulation.
Lightweight, and stowes into it's own pocket for packing purposes without compromising warmth
