Description

Named after the fictional Middle-earth metal Mithril, the Men’s Outdoor Research Mithril Jacket is also stronger than steel but much lighter in weight (in a mythical kind of way). Made from waterproof Ventia™ soft shell fabric, you have all the weather protection of a hard rain shell, but the comfort and breathability of a softshell fleece. Lined with soft polyester fleece, this winter jacket is super comfy and never feels clammy inside when you’re working up a sweat. The zippers are water-resistant, and the adjustable hood, Velcro cuffs and drawcord at the hem all help seal out the elements. The exterior taping on all seams not only looks modern and awesome, it helps to keep you dry. The Outdoor Research Mithril Jacket for men should be your choice for any quest in Middle-earth, let alone a demanding hike, climb or snowshoe trip in this winter realm.

One of the best purchases ever
November 10, 2010

This was my first Outdoor Research gear purchase, specifically made for a Sept. climb of Mt Rainier. Worked perfectly. After made Camp Muir, rarely came off. Kept me warm and dry for the next 2 days. Easy on/off over gear and hood worked well with a helmet. No leakage at all.

Pros: Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance

Great all around jacket
January 07, 2010

Outdoor Research's Mithril jacket appears to be a well designed soft shell for wet and stormy winter conditions. Sizing feels similar to other OR products. I am 5'10", 145 lbs. and a size medium fits me perfect, except that the length was shorter then I prefer to allowing for adequate layering. All else said, a quality product at a reasonable price.

Great jacket

Have had this jacket for over a year now. Still makes me smile very time I wear it. Windproof and warm with the right layering. Looks different than anything else out there. Highly recommend.

Great all round softshell
January 05, 2011

Really like the versatility of the softshell jackets and have owned a Mountain Hardwear Syncho jacket for three years. The hood on the Mithril, tighter material weave and a little more interior fleece gives this jacket a lower temperature range and the ability to wear the jacket in bad weather. Also great for skiing.

Pros: Great design

Good looking coat - not quite warm enough.
April 15, 2010

Like the coat but had to return it. It would be great for around town or out to dinner, but I noticed the wind goes right through it in sub 50 degreee temps.

Love this jacket!
February 03, 2012

I've owned two of these jackets. Great fit and I think it is true to size. Great 3 season jacket...might be a bit warm for summer. Purchase when colors are discontinued you will find some great deals. BTW OR has a great lifetime warranty.

Great jacket
February 15, 2011

I was looking for an insulated, waterproof, hooded jacket. Don't think I could've found a better fit than with the Mithril. The fit is definitely geared for a more athletic build. I'm 6', 165 and the medium fits great. It's the perfect weight for the Northwest climate, the fleece lining is just warm enough but doesn't get too hot when exerting yourself. Seems to be totally waterproof, although I haven't had a chance to really test that yet. Looks good around town, and performs great in the elements! No regrets here

Well worth the money!
October 29, 2011

I am 5'10" and weigh about 160, with a 36 inch chest. I originally ordered the small but it was too trim of a fit for layering underneath, the meduim is great. Awesome quality goes without saying, as with any OR products. Although I haven't field tested this jacket yet, I think it will be a great one! There is a thin "micro fleece" type lining which gives the jacket a bit warmer feel than a standard shell. You may want to order a size up if a trim fit is not what your going for. (Cuffs are adjustable)

Awesome

Put this jacket to the test immediately, teens to low 30's for weeks now, with snow and rain. Jacket is excellent! Not by itself, but with a hoodie or nice underlayer.

Must Buy
April 26, 2011

Great for rock climbing small and large walls. Waterproof, Windproof, Light Weight, and Durable. Best soft shell I have ever owned! This product is a must buy for mountaineering.

Pros: Build quality

Great multipurpose jacket
January 01, 2010

This is quickly becoming my go-to jacket. I'm 5'11'' and 145 lbs with a 37'' chest, and a small fits great. It's windproof, waterPROOF, not just resistant, and warm down to about 45 degrees when still because of its nice fleece lining. It's light and pretty packable too. There's really no reason *not* to bring this jacket along when you're heading into iffy weather, since it's functional in so many situations. If it ends up not raining, well then it's still plenty good as an insulation piece. I wouldn't use it as a technical shell, since the body is cut kind of short, and the hood could stand to be roomier. It leaves my face a little bit exposed. If I were only allowed to bring one jacket on a trip, it would be this one. It's just such an incredibly versatile piece of gear. Highly recommended.

good quality, not right size for me
April 13, 2010

I am 5'9" 190 with muscular build and very broad shoulders. I ordered large and it was way too short(above belt buckle) Sleeve length was perfect so ordering up wouldn't work. Zippers were tight. I ordered black and it was very stylish but in the end it just didn't fit. First Outdoor Research product and am a bit disappointed. Maybe it's just was awkward size but 95% of every other brand fits nice in large.
