The award-winning Outdoor Research Men's Deviator Hoody blurs the lines between insulated jackets and baselayer.
The award-winning Outdoor Research Men’s Deviator Hoody blurs the lines between baselayers and insulated jackets. Lightweight and breathable, the jacket moves moisture while providing just enough warmth for aerobic activity in cool or cold temperatures.
Polartec PowerDry High Efficiency polyester/spandex knit fabric on the arms, hood, and back provide a trim, athletic fit. The gridded backing feels great next-to-skin and offer protection from the elements while also maximizing breathability. Innovative Polartec Alpha synthetic insulation on the front torso and side panels bumps up warmth just slightly in those areas most likely to pick up chills. The insulation retains its ability to keep you warm if it becomes wet and dries quickly, two key components in an athletic jacket. Polygiene Active Odor Control combats bacteria and mildew build-up to keep the Men’s Deviator Hoody smelling fresh longer than most athletic garments.
The jacket’s low-profile hood has just enough elastic to ensure an appropriate fit and a drawcord at the hem offers fit adjustability. There is also elasticity in the cuffs, though you’ll likely choose to take advantage of the integrated thumb loops which increase warmth and, when used in cold weather, eliminate gapping between sleeves and gloves.
Other features on the Men’s Deviator Hoody include dual hand warmer pockets and a small zippered pocket on the chest. A key clip on the inside of one of the hand warmer pockets makes certain that your key is still there when you get back to the trailhead!
Available in an array of size and color options, the Outdoor Research Men’s Deviator Hoody has a trim fit that moves with you and allows for low-profile baselayers beneath it while also letting you layer over top of it in extreme cold.

Likes: Does an excellent job of regulating body tempurature and definitely has that technical fabric feel that stands out from crowd. Works best in my system as a midlayer under a shell, especially useful around camp mornings/evenings
Dislikes: The core material is delicate and will let you down if you need to trail blaze through a section of briars. Also, the zipper is light and tends to catch at the bottom.
