Mountain Functionality with About Town Looks, the Shadow Insulated Hoodie offers a one jacket solution to your diverse adventures

Finding the right jacket to conquer both mountain exploits and in town hangouts can be a challenge, but throw in the desire for a light environment footprint and the options are limited. Outdoor Research brings a great contender to market with the Shadow Insulated Hoodie. Construction incorporates VerticalX ECO SR, the latest in insulating technologies which provides more warmth, loft and softness with less impact on the planet thanks to its use of recyled materials and bio-based Sorona.

Functional as Part of a Layering System or Stand Alone

The Shadow fuctions well as a midlayer in your layering setup or as a stand alone external piece when moving about town. The advanced VerticalX ECO insulation provides a superior warmth to bulk ratio -- meaning you can fit a lot of warmth under your shell without feeling bulky.

Looking Good and Feeling Good: Either on Mountain or In City

Outdoor Research hails from Seattle, meaning all their pieces must perform in Moutain Ranges like the close by Cascades, or in City. Often in the same day. With a slim, warm construction you can easily transition between both worlds. Use of eco friendly VerticalX ECO SR insulation technology means you're treading lightly no matter which environment you find yourself exploring.


Simple Yet Functional - Just What you Need from an Everyday Midlayer

  • Adjustable Insulated Hood
  • Zip Hand Pockets
  • Two Large Internal Dump Pockets
  • Low Pro Binding Elastic Cuffs with Thumb Loops
  • Elastic Drawcord Hem
  • Movement Mirroring Stretch

About Outdoor Research

Outdoor Research is based in Seattle, WA and started in 1981 by Ron Gregg, who founded the company after experiencing firsthand the price of faulty outdoor adventure gear. Outdoor Research is built on the idea that life is an adventure, and the best gear makes it more fun. The mission: it's not about chasing heroes; It's about being on the journey. It's not how often we get out as much as how often we want to be out that makes us who we are. OR’s goal is to do all they can to expand the community of people who share the belief that progress is spiritual and life is unimaginable without the quest.
