The Aria Jacket Was Discontinued In 2016 and Is Now Only Available As A Hoody
As an all-around down jacket for the cold season, the Outdoor Research Aria is a solid performer. We like the attention to detail on this jacket: cozy face guard on the collar, ribbons to protect against zipper-snags in the pockets, an internal pocket with a headphone port, and a longer cut in the back. The downsides are that we don't love the look, and the down is slightly lower quality than most other competing jackets in this category. For the same price, we would be inclined to go with the Hi-Tec Timaru Down Hoodie - Women's which has better looks and a hood.
