“Seriously, what's not to love about the Vario? Coming from extensive use of the Ventus hoodie, the Vario is an excellent, and in my mind, necessary addition to my layering system for what the Vario provides. The Vario hits a sweet spot in warmth for me that's perfect for shoulder season backpacking and high alpine summer trips. The Vario has become a staple piece of apparel for my backpacking and hiking trips. Well done, OV, well done!” - Devin Ashby, Backcountry Exposure
Vario Ultralight Jacket
Built For Any Adventure
We've built the Vario using sustainable & innovative insulations technology with durable fabrics to bring you a jacket that will weigh less, keep you warmer, and pack smaller!
It's the perfect jacket for ultralight backcountry performance. How do we know? We live that lifestyle.
Warmer, Lighter, & Breathable
The Vario Jacket brings a new meaning to "ultralight backpacking". No longer do you have to sacrifice warmth to get a lower pack weight!
More Warmth, Less Weight
Weighing just 10 oz, the Vario can completely replace a 3 season down puffy jacket...
...but you won't have to worry about it ever wetting out!
Ultralight Stretch Technology
50% Recycled 3DeFX™ Insulation
100% of our materials are sourced & created by Toray. We know where everything came from on a molecular level! That means there are no impurities in the recycled insulation fibers. Every part of it is planned & recycled purposefully.
The result is that the 50% recycled 3DeFX insulation has 0% performance & durability degradation after extensive testing! This warmer insulation is more sustainable, just as lofty, and just as durable as original 3DeFX.
