5.0 out of 5 stars Best Jacket Ever, January 7, 2012
This review is from: Arc 10-857 Windshield Wiper Motor (Apparel)
I rarely write reviews but I had to give Arcteryx credit for such a great jacket. I did not purchase it from Amazon because my local outdoors store was having a sale and wanted to give them my money. Im planning a hike in April in NC and needed a light jacket that was warm and compressible. I never would have bought a jacket this expensive but when I tried it on, it was extremely light and the softest most comfortable jacket I have ever tried. It is hard to believe that a jacket as light as this can keep you as warm as it does. I wore it to NY recently when it was in the 30's and windy. I only had a lightweight shirt on under it and was very warm. I am from Florida so I dont deal with cold very well. The secret to its warmth is the loft that traps air. If you pat the jacket you can tell it traps a very small amount air inside it. Just an ever so slight amount of loft. Not big and puffy like down jackets but just enough to do the job. If you are worried about the stretchy fabric that runs down the sides of the jacket not being warm...dont, it keeps the jacket from being sloppy and allows it to stretch if needed. Im 6'2 250lbs and I have the xxl size...its perfect. If I was 220lbs again I could have bought the Xl possibly. Dont be scared, it is a wonderful jacket and I promise you will not be disappointed. Arcteryx is expensive gear but I feel this jacket is definitely worth it. Just do it, youll make more money next week.
