Early summer mornings in the foothills always have a slight chill. You await the sun filled joy of the midday. A light jacket helps bridge that gap until the sun is high above you.

The Outdoor Research Ferrosi Hoody is touted to fill that void. The hoody has a nice feel when worn. Invista was tapped for its Cordura lycra which serves as the main fabric in the Ferrossi Hoody. Cordura has been around for decades and was a military brain child for use in service vehicle tires in World War II.

Today, Cordura can be found in outdoor clothing due to its durable and rugged qualities. The Ferrosi wicks away mid-morning perspiration quicker than Lady Gaga causes a scene at a New York Mets or Yankee game.

The hoody offers 2 hand pockets plus a left-chest pocket. A drawstring on the hem adjusts the fit around your waist.

The kicker is that the jacket is wind resistant and has a water repellant finish. Up against the elements shows these features at their finest. A fierce headwind was shunned away and a steady rainfall did not penetrate the hoody's Cordura fortress. When testing the worthiness of the Ferrosi Hoody. The jacket packs down to a small size in a stuff sack to stow when the sun starts beaming.

Outdoor_Research_logoThe Outdoor Research Ferrosi Hoody is a solid choice for cooler days and its wind and water resistance is a bonus. The Ferrosi Hoody comes in 3 color options – black, light blue/green and red/light brown. Outdoor Research lists the hoody at $125.
