This coat is awesome, from the coreloft to the wind proof shell. The only thing I would change about this jacket are the front pockets. I wish they were more insulated rather than only shell exterior. Either way super sick, super warm an excited for this winter as I wasn't prepared last year. Heads up coat runs larger than other Arc'teryx items. (or in my experience)
My first Arcteryx jacket. I got to say, this thing rocks. It's perfect for walking around outside during winter and playing in the snow. This thing is WARM, yet feels super light aand doesn't make you feel like a marshmallow. The fit is unlike any other jacket out there. The material is also super tough and very windproof and extremely water resistant. I walked through thick brush and even feel in a briar patch in it and it still looks brand new. In 30mph winds it feels like you're a weatherproof fortress. I cannot rate this jacket highly enough. I'm 6'1 170lbs and the large fits perfect. I will definitely buy arcteryx again. Moosejaw was also nice and gave me a free tube of toothpaste with it, awesome!
I really like the interior mesh pockets, they fit goggles, gloves, and even the mail very nicely. The zipper action is smooth for easy on and off, but doesn't fall down even when in action.This jacket does not pack up small, at all. If I take it off during hiking i have to lash it to the back of my pack.This is my fifth Arcteryx jacket I have purchased in the last 2 years, and as usual is a top notch piece.
