Micro Climate Jacket - Sage

127 reviews

  • This is not a wind jacket! (it's so much more)

    *** Now available in Stone Blue *** Our Micro Climate Jacket features an extremely durable, lightweight fabric custom milled especially for us. This jacket breathes like nothing we've ever used. Ever read about the $500 Olympic swimsuits? Yeah, fabric like that... We designed a lofted pattern to insulate at strategic points keeping you warm and dry. Speaking of dry, the fabric has a patented treatment applied permanently to each fiber strand which resists moisture, making the jacket water-resistant and quick to dry without a coating that could wash off. Did we mention stretch? This jacket stretches, making it comfortable while moving with you on the bike.

    San Francisco is known for its microclimates and that was our inspiration for the ultimate take-along jacket. When you're cold, put it on and when it warms up, stuff it in its rear pocket and continue on. You could wear it all day, Ornot. Curious about the difference between our Magic Shell and Micro Climate Jackets? Check out our comparison here.
    1. WE ADDED A DOUBLE ZIPPER! (this was a popular request)
    2. Reversible rear pocket doubles as a stash bag.
    3. Custom lightweight fabric is durable with abundant 4-way stretch and consistent recovery.
    4. Lofted insulation in key areas (chest, shoulders, front of arms).
    5. Water-resistant and quick-drying due to patented thread treatment that won't wash off.
    6. Soft interior insulation feels good directly against your skin.
    7. 155 grams (size small) - Temp range ; 40 - 67 degrees.
    8. Sewn by hand in California.

  • Size Note * The Micro Climate Jacket is designed to be fitted. If you prefer a slightly more relaxed or roomy fit, we suggest moving up one size. Studio Model is 5'10", 150lbs and wearing a size Small. The fabric has a good amount of stretch. If you have questions about sizing send us an email.

I call it the magic climate jacket

When my microclimate (MC) arrived, I was caught of guard by the petiteness of the packaging. About the size of a Castanza wallet, it was a noticeably small piece of kit that would be easily packable as advertised. I am often ambivalent about certain brand sizing and can be caught in between medium and large depending on brand. After reading reviews, I went with medium. Fit was perfect! I am 6’ and 168 lbs, with a muscular upper body. My first impression was the material seemed light and I questioned the noted temperature range. I love the lack of branding and another main reason I invest in the Ornot brand. Back to temperature: on my first ride, I took a leap and wore the MC over an Ornot thermal jersey with a non-sleeved base layer. My phone said it was 50 degrees at the start of 6 am ride pre-work ride, in coastal Santa Barbara. Throughout the ride the temp varied from 48-53. MC performed beautifully. Not cold at the start and not too hot as the ride progressed. I was impressed! Traditionally, I wear a gilet in this situation, so not having arm chill at ride start was nice. At the conclusion of the ride, the base layer was not damp, which demonstrates the breathabilty of the material. No flapping at an 18-21 mph pace with Max speeds in upper 20’s. I was able to access my phone in the rear pocket with full fingered gloved hands. I also appreciate the dual zipper upgrade. Overall, super impressed and suggest they change the name to the “magic climate” jacket, Ornot, as I also own the magic shell, but believe I will get more use out of this piece of kit in the situations I am most often encountering in the coastal and mountainous local rides.

Just what the doctor ordered

Very positive—light, form fitting, doesn’t flap in wind. Reasonably warm down to about 45-50.

You need this!

At 4:30am, while the rest of the world is still in bed, I choose to pedal for 15 miles to work, (and then another 15 back). That early, it’s usually chilly out but only for the first few minutes. After a couple of miles, I’m regretting wearing my heavy old cycling jacket. Not. Any. More. I searched and searched and came across some reviews of The Micro Climate jacket from Ornot. It wasn’t cheap, but on par with what others charge for less superior trash bag garments. This jacket is perfect for 50 degree Bay Area mornings. The two way zipper is all I need when things warm up. In the afternoon, it packs away in my handlebar bag so easy! If you are unsure about this jacket, just do it! Purchase the Micro Climate jacket and you too can ride as comfortable as I do now Oh, and it looks good too!
