When snow recedes above the tree line and spring flowers bloom, replace your winter jacket with the Outdoor Research Men's Ferrosi Hooded Jacket. This water resistant jacket sheds light spring showers and it blocks cool alpine breezes when you hike for late season turns. The nylonspandex softshell fabric breathes well when you're working up a sweat, and it allows for maximum mobility with its movement mirroring stretch. Tough stretch Cordura on the shoulders and arms stands up to brushes with rock faces and ski edges. In addition, DWR coated zippers block outside moisture from seeping into vulnerable zipper seams, and the zipper is offset at the collar to prevent chafing.
