  • Q & A

I’m a tall and skinny frame of 6’3” 180lbs. Will the large be best fit?

Hi Tim, yes I think large would be the best fit for you, medium would likely be a bit short in the arms/torso. If you know your chest/waist measurements, Arc'teryx size charts are usually pretty spot on as well!

Very very warm jacket

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: large

Update: So i just overheated walking to the liquor store (a perfect winter walk ;-)) wearing the Cordova with a baselayer. I found myself dodging sunlight like a vampire - the black version soaks up sun like a solar panel. Finally i had to hang it off my shoulders. i thought it must be 50ºF. When i got home i checked: 34ºF ("feels like" 29ºF)... In summation, this is a COLD weather garment, at least if you run warm like me. If you were to take this to the mountains, i think it would make a great shell for either zero to freezing conditions where you need wind protection plus breathability - but it's probably not a one-tool-option, unless it's well below freezing. And if it's sub-zero, you may want a true vapor barrier membrane like gore-tex. The fact that it's so warm gives me some concern about its ability to let the skin respirate, but it seems closer to a traditional soft-shell - albeit a heavy one - than a hardshell. We shall see...

Urban body armor

So this hoody is new to me, but this morning it was 20ºF and icy, so the perfect opportunity to try out this beast. Proof that Arc'teryx isn't only for ice-climbing, this is one seriously heavy-duty softshell. I had a jacket lifetimes ago that looked similar with a felted wool face, and i crashed my mountain bike several times wearing that jacket and you couldn't tell at all, it looked new. And the Arc'teryx Cordova is heavier than that. It's got a certain stiffness to the fabric that i really like, and tons of little highly refined touches āla Arc'teryx; The cuffs have this great hidden gasket inside like the Atom series, only thicker and softer. The back of the cuff is cut longer like a dart, covering the backs of the hands, which turns out to be very welcomed when the wind picks up, like wearing thumb-holes or fingerless gloves... The hem is adjustable, and while i haven't had to use it, it's a welcomed feature to have. The hood, though lacking adjustability, turns with your head so it won't interfere with peripheral vision, or looking over your shoulder to see if it's safe to change lanes while driving. Pretty important feature. It also doesn't flop in front of your eyes or anything like that. In terms of weather protection, i haven't had it out in anything but light snow, and some cold wind; In these conditions, i felt completely protected - i actually ended up taking off my mid-layer and wearing just this Jacket over a baselayer. Not because i was overheating or anything, i just didn't need any extra insulation. Performance wise i'd say it's similar to my lauded Gamma MX (another fleece-lined softshell), though the Cordova seems maybe slightly less breathable/ more wind resistant? Time will tell on that last point. So if you are looking for a cold-weather flak jacket that scoffs at a windy 20ºF, and looks very sharp doing it - this is definitely the nicest combo of technical and urban that i have found yet. Well worth the dough, considering the comparable cost of a "casual" urban top-coat or pea coat, which Arc'teryx spanks the living hell out of in terms of function and design. I don't love everything that Arc'teryx makes, but this is one bad jacket -- i'm very happy with it so far :-)

Follow up: So the hem has an adjustment cord, and a few mornings ago it was in the teens and i had on my trusty Cordova, and i thought i'd pull the hem cord, and i have to admit i didn't really look closely at it before. The shock-cord is very thin. It has the familiar little cord-pull on it, but when you pull it nothing happens. This is because there is no captive cord cinch! Just like back in the '80s, the cordlock is just hanging on the cord and not anchored to the fabric, so you have to hold the cord-pull with one hand and the lock with the other, then pinch the (tiny) button and slide it up the cord to a grommet. It seems like a bit of an afterthought really, and i don't know if it's even necessary on an urban jacket like this (particularly given the absence of any other adjusters), and since the cut is closest-fitting at the hem, even in size large with my 32" waist, i really haven't needed a hem-cinch.
So, having picked that nit, i have to say, this jacket is a tremendous value, imho. I would not think twice about wearing it to a "Colorado Formal" event, particularly the black version. If you live in the city and want an urban sharp-looking winter hoody, but with hidden alpine technology built in, this is the best i have found yet.
