If It Ain't Broke: The Tried & Tested OR Ferrosi Hooded Jacket

The Ferrosi Hooded Jacket has achieved an almost cult-like status over the years. The one here is the updated 2018 version with thumb loops.

The Ferrosi was a close runner up in Scramble's "hooded softshell category" to Mountain Equipment's lighter, more minimalist Echo Hooded Jacket. The internet is full of glowing reviews for the Ferrosi and it's obviously much loved by many in the outdoor world, having won numerous awards.

Outdoor Research's highly popular Ferrosi Hooded Jacket has had some small improvements made without losing any of the original key features that made it a super-light, super-stretchy softshell that's both durable, functional and comfortable to wear.

Scramble "Pre-Test" Item:  Condition (New)

When an item is scheduled to be tested by Scramble they will sometimes buy a quantity for their members to try out. The item on sale here was not required and as such is new and unused and re-packaged. Such "pre-test" items have their tags removed prior to shipping to the tester. This item will come with the original tags but they are loose. This has no effect on returns to SYSTEM. If you need to return the jacket, just make sure you include the tags.

Outdoor Research say:

The new 2018 model has a more stylish look with the chest pocket details laid over the zip and redesigned wrists with thumb holes adding that extra comfort. It looks great over a t-shirt on warmer days or works well as an extra layer when the weather isn't great.

When a piece of gear has a cult-like following like the Ferrosi Hooded Jacket does, you don't mess with it unless you can really justify it. So we kept everything everyone loves about our tough but breathable do-it-all lightweight weather-resistant soft shell, and added thumb loops and slightly changed the hybrid mapping on the wrists for a fresh look.
