Outdoor Research Deviator Insulated Hoodie anyone used one
Yep, very good indeed Nice snug fit and much admired by others who see it
True to size ?
Mrs Ed has one and really likes it.
It probably wouldn't fit you.
I'm normally a medium, it's a medium and its fits well, think its designed to be snug fitting. I wear mine over a normal half zip base layer. It prob wont go over anything more than two base layers.
Might just get one to try like the idea that it has less warmth on the back ,as I normally have a backpack on anyway
I'll pass that on
Would she say it’s true to size ?
Yes it's an athletic cut though.
Im on my second one...best bit of kit ive ever had. I run, hike and sleep in it. Im on my second. Its like some polartec magic.
Ive worn it in all kinds of weather and for days on end.
Thanks that what I want to hear, from a bloke who uses his stuff
I didnt have much time this morning.
Its a fierce piece of kit. Ive worn it in mild conditions, with and without a pack.
How it wicks is magic, and how it dries quick is remarkable. I usually wear it without a base and without a windshell unless its a hoolie.
Ive hiked in it to altitude when its been ambient...
When its been cooling with high humidity and low cloud,
Through frozen climes...
During Heavy work...
With a base when it was blowing a hoolie , tempreture was recorded at the time as i had my new watch. It was 1-2° in the wind and droppes to -2 with fog between the trees when we descended.
When trail running with stop start elements ,
for most.of the recent 17hr 55mile race ...here i am at the finish around 3 am
Trully versitile. Hood isnt the best , but not the worst by any means, sleeves can be pushed up a bit. Thumbloops practical, hem cord daft (pulls the zip to one side if over tight.
Pockets good but would benifit a zip or popper.
Outer material deceivingly snag and fall resistant.
Fit athletic on upperbody, slightly relaxed on lower.
Team it with a good breathable windshell and its an absolute winner.
Ive been meaning to do a review for ages....sort of being selfish till i got another my size as a spare for a few years down the line lol.
Ta early finish today so off at 11-30 to nip and try for size at Gaynors,only 20mile from work , not quite the cheapest there but think it’s £80
I love mine. I did get it on sale though. Its REALLY pricey if not.
Anyone tried the Adidas gravic alpha shield hoody? Sounds very similar.
£89 if you buy in store st Gaynors not cheapest but I wanted to try it on
@Chiseller my deviator is starting to show some wear in the weird plastic fabric covering the insulation ( probably due to something I was carrying in the chest pocket rubbing the material). There are tiny holes and scuffs. Do you know how or with what can repair them or reinforce them before they get worse?
Can you send a picture? I'm out with mine as we speak . It sounds like it's scrap and needs sending to me for upcycling lol.
Mine hasn't got any weird plastic.
Ha! You know on the front, the outer material? That is what i call weird plastic.
Il try to take a pic but I dont know if the camera will pick it up
Here it is, can you see @Chiseller ?
What do you think could work?
Big patch of tenacious. I'd try gaffa tape though. Looks unusual that. Is it from a backpack 9r seatbelt?
I think is from putting something pokey inside the pocket, maybe I put my compass or my keys...
Ill try your ideas, thankyou!!
I've put all sorts in and not suffered anything like that.
I've been running and hiking in it again today. Performed excellently as usually in the sun, wind, cold . Without doubt the most adaptable top I have. I didn't throw my wind shirt over until the sun had gone down and I was descending.
