Best mid layer I have ever owned. The fit is spot on (6' 195 and the large fits great). I wore this in 25 degree temps with just a long sleeve t-shirt underneath and was completely fine. It's a slim fit and the arms tapper to an elastic cuff which takes some getting used to but now I wish all of my jackets had this quality. There is enough room for a light shirt and waffle underneath this jacket as well. Winder resistance is decent, but air does come through the light side panels of the jacket pretty easily. So if is windy you'll definitely want to have some sort of hardshell. Everyone should own one (or the hoody version)!!
Picked up this jacket for layering and wearing solo in moderate temps. Has far exceeded my expectations! Very light and very warm! One thing that I didn't catch in the product reviews and description (probably my oversight) is that there are breathable panels that start under the pits and extend down the sides. They are not insulated like the rest of the jacket. This helps for breathability when active, but found out firsthand in very cold, heavy wind, you can feel a slight draft. With that said, obviously not the intended purpose to wear the jacket solo on a windy winter day. Should have had a shell or something over top. Absolutely no regrets with the purchase and absolutely love the jacket! Highly recommend!
"Awesome as a warm layer or as a jacket!"
This is my go-to piece both as a midlayer for colder skiing days and as an outerlayer when I travel. Super warm, comfortable, incredibly lightweight and packs down to almost nothing. I'm 5'10" 135 lbs, and the medium fits me really well. (I initially went for the small, same as my Arc'teryx shell, but it was way too small.) Pricey but well worth the extra for the Arc'teryx quality and attention to detail.
This is my first high-end piece of cold-weather layering (have always rolled with Columbia/North Face/Under Armor at the local Scheels). I was pretty hesitant about dropping $200 on just a mid-layer when I have usually spent $150-175 on a tri-climate system. As soon as I put it on, what a difference!! This jacket is more comfortable than any hoodie or sweater out there along with the capability to be a stand alone jacket in 20-30 degree weather. I've rolled it into a sleeve for a couple friends and they can't believe what just happened. Saving up for a hard shell from Arc'teryx now!
One of the most useful kit pieces I own. Can't say enough good things. Warm and comfy with minimal weight. Wear indoors in place of a sweater, outdoors as outerwear spring, fall or evenings. And when the snow flies it's my go to mid layer beneath my Arcteryx shells.Love it!
"Light, but super warm jacket that can serve as as liner or stand alone as its own Jacket."
Wore this jacket in 40 degree temperatures with nothing but a t shirt underneath and was totally fine. Its creates a warmth that just simply does the job even in that cold/wet/nasty weather. Rain beads and rolls right off. Fit is snug, but comfortable in wrists and waist to retain warmth. I work outside on my feet where the temperature can be in the high 80's during the day and drop to 20 degrees when the wind changes direction. This is a great piece of gear to have on hand. This jacket is easily foldable into the small pouch of a camelbak or cargo pocket. It can be pulled out of nowhere to save you butt from the elements. Theres a reason Navy Seals use arc'teryx clothing. True story.
This is the best and most versatile garment I have ever had the pleasure to touch. Not only is it light weight but it functions admirably at every temperature between 30 and 70 degrees (that's Fahrenheit). It has a miraculous fit; the medium seemingly made for my 5'10" 160lb. body. Not at all shiny like most synthetic jackets. Good stuff if you plan on doing anything. Between you and me I would get the hoody over the zip up.
I have owned this jacket for over a year and have gotten more use out of it than I ever thought I would. It is super light weight, feels like you aren't even wearing it, and it packs down really small. This jacket goes with me on every backpacking trip in case the temps drop. It is super warm, you can wear it down to about 20 degrees, and it sheds water pretty well. I also like that it doesn't have the baffled construction so you can wear it around town without getting too many looks. Overall this lives up to traditional Arcteryx standards, they just get all the little things right and this is no exception.
Very, very packable! Packs down to a size of a Nalgene bottle. Super lightweight and feel like you're wearing a sleeping bag...no kidding! Pit zips? Who needs them! This has a breathable fabric that vents heat all day long...it's along the sides of the jacket. Nice internal pocket for that ipod or electronic gizmo. Probably the best midlayer I've ever had. Only thing I could suggest is more colors. :)
