Outdoor Research UberlayerOverview

The Outdoor Research Uberlayer is an active insulation jacket that scores below average in our ratings. It weighs four ounces more than similar jackets but does not make up for the extra weight with added comfort, durability, warmth, or lower cost. The Uberlayer performed reasonably well in our tests.
