Micro Climate Jacket - Sage

155 reviews

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

    *** Now available in Stone Blue and Morocco *** 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.

Almost Perfect

Lives up to the promise in my experience so far. The fabric has been super comfy throughout all kinds of weather. If I put this on, I usually won't take it off the whole ride unless the temps rise to 70-ish and the sun is shining bright. If I start building up heat, I just zip up the bottom zip. Zip down on the descent. My main gripe is the fit. The shoulders fit sorta boxy and peak upward when I'm riding. That ends up shortening the sleeves which ride up behind my wrists. The construction leaves something to be desired at this price point I think. Seams are tidy, but not as confidence-inspiring as other jackets I've had around the same price. I'm not an expert here, so maybe it's not a big deal.
