Mountains? Check. City? Check. This is one seriously do-it-all fleece.

The only certainty in the mountains is that things are going to change; by the time you cram down your lunchtime PB&J, the morning's blazing rays will have given way to brooding clouds, or the storm will have been driven off by the sun. Arc'teryx made the Delta LT Men's Fleece Jacket to roll with the changes, with Polartec fleece and a lightweight design that's equally at home on its own or layered under a shell when the weather's nasty. Gusseted underarms and a dropped back hem mean the Delta is most at home when you're being active, but it's got a sleek look that's more than happy to head to class or work (as long as you slip out early for an evening hike).

Love The Brand

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Large

I bought this knowing it was going to be a fairly light piece. I'm 6'3" and about 170 lbs. Bought a size large, fits perfectly, even with my long arms. It's nice that Arcteryx always makes the sleeves a little long. I bought it for running in the cool fall and winter evenings in Las Vegas. A little cool getting started, but it's never too warm once I get rolling.

Great comfort and fit

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

A great-fitting, light, and comfortable fleece. Caveat emptor, though: this is for cool—not cold—temperatures. I wore it out yesterday in 52 degrees with a light breeze and the insulation did not feel adequate. I anticipate using it for cool spring–fall evenings, or around the house in winter.

Flimsy

  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: XL

This is a really flimsy layer. I returned as soon as I tried it on. It doesn't look like it'll survive a wash.

Arc'teryx is an awesome brand

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: XL

I love, love this brand. soft fabric, great quality and durable material

Light Layer

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

This is a lighter layer that a Patagonia R1 and it therefore breathes better. It's also more packable than the R1. It's a great travel piece or light layer under a shell. I am cautious about heavy use with a pack though because of the open face knit grid packing out. I have to say I also like the inclusion of the 'no slip zip' too.

I've abused my R1 for 8 years and it's still strong - I hope the Delta LT can do the same for me. Also, what am I supposed to put in this arm pocket? A chapstick?... Joke aside, it might be a little pricey for a light fleece but hey, Arc'teryx. True to Arc' size.

Light Layer

Hey Matt, Thanks for the Review this is awesome!

Nice casual layer

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: small

I own a few products from Arc'teryx. This fleece is a good option for layering over a t-shirt, or wool long sleeve. It fits less snug than their other performance fleece, which is good if you're looking for comfort. Not sure the lightweight material supports the pockets on the sides and sleeve all that well. I don't think this will be my go-to layer for anything technical, but I'd certainly wear it running errands around town. I also agree with the comments below that it does feel a bit average for the price.

Nice jacket, poor value

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Med

I'm not entirely sure why this jacket costs so much. The material and fit is nothing special. The fit is actually a bit odd, large/long in some areas. Although the material is light, it feels heavy on your shoulders after wearing a while. Overall, the price doesn't justify what you get. Should be around $60.

Just buy it

  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Xl

Gotta say I've had for over 2 months now and it's all I seem to be wearing, looks great warm, layers very well , hell im pissed I didn't order one sooner

A versatile lightweight fleece.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

I really like this fleece! It is lightweight and thin but warm. I think it is great for spring/fall. It is easy to take along and have when the temps fall or a cool breeze kicks up. Whether out and about or out on the trail. It's also great as a piece for when it is cool/colder and your active. I like that it is warm enough and it breathes well. I don't like getting too warm and this allows me versatility when wearing it.

It is a very good option under a shell or a heavier insulating jacket. I own three Delta LTs. One is a 1/4 zip, which I like to wear when I plan on having it on for a long period of time. The others are full zips. Making it easier to take on or off. One is a large, which almost fits me perfect. Fits well with a T-shirt underneath. Also when active and with a full range of motion. The other is an extra-large. Better for options to wear under or for a more casual look.

I own several Arcteryx pieces. The Delta LT falls in line with their other pieces. Very good quality.

Love it

    I love this fleece. It's pretty thin and not for adding much heat but it's a great piece for cool summer evenings. I often grab it as an extra layer just in case. It fits great, true to size and looks awesome.

    Day Dreamin'

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: large

    I live in southern california. It gets hot in the summer, like really hot. I like the winter the best, don't tell anyone, but that's the truth. This jacket (think light sweatshirt) is perfect for the cooler mornings and evenings, by the beach, especially when idle, and it looks sharp. It's light. It's soft. It's super comfortable. I have the admiral (dark blue), good choice.
    I purchased a large which will be perfect for layering on top of a t-shirt or button up. I have more technical gear for other, more intensive endeavors. This is perfect as a lightweight, warm-weather layer.

    Great thin and stretch fleece

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Small

    This is a great light fleece that is slim, but not so tight as to inhibit mobility. It's not typical stretchy fabric but I've climbed in it and it works great, doesnt catch or anything. Layers well under a ghost whisperer for example or any other light jacket. This is also very lightweight so a good backup to have, or nice on a spring/fall day while doing something active like climbing or hiking.

    I usually wear medium but found a small fits perfect. Only difference I found was the medium seemed to be a bit longer at the waist.

    Great lightweight fleece layer

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit: True to size

    I gave this as a gift and all I hear is good things about it. The fleece is thin and packs fairly small. It also provides adequate warmth for a piece this thin.

    As is typical with Arc'teryx the quality is top notch. I'm sure this fleece will stand years of use on the trails.

    Nice lite do it all fleece

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    For me the gold standard for light weight mid-layer all purpose fleece is Patagonia's R1 pullover. But I lost mine, and within Patagonia there must be a civil war every year between normal sized people and super skinny people. This year the skinny folks won so that means the replacement won't fit me. So off I went looking for a comparable alternative. I settled on this and it's pretty darn good. The fit is perfect, not too slim or too long. Interesting the square pattern is on the outside. It is very light and takes up very little room stuff in my backpack.

    First real test was a 10 mile hike out to Tomales Point and back. Started early in the morning. As temps went from cool to hot for a moment I thought about taking it off, but it was actually fine so I just unzipped it and kept cruising along. The forecast was for strong winds later in the day and boy was that a spot on prediction. Cold gusts off the Pacific, up to 50 mph, it was hard to stand at times. Most people passing us had full parkas zipped with hoods synch'd down. I just had this on and never felt like I needed to break out my shell. I was amazed how it functioned as temps must have fluctuated 30-40 degrees during the day.

    The only ding is that after a season of use it looks a tad worn. I suspect I'm being a bit fussy but my Arcteryx covert cardigan looks about the same after twelve years of abuse. Anyway, I still highly recommend this fleece.

    If you were able to choose between this fleece and a new Patagonia R1 (assuming same fit), what would you choose?

    Questionable Value

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

    I love Arc'teryx products but for a lightweight fleece, there are a lot of other options that are warmer. This is very light and for $128 seems way overpriced. $60 would be more reasonable.. It did the job over the holidays though for running around, on the beach and layering under a shell in rain and 40's.

    Arc'teryx quality !!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Med

    Perfect fit and warmth to spare. My new go-to layer.

    Versatile

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium

    I originally purchased the jacket as a comfortable fleece to wear while on flights that got too chilly. That was 3 years ago and since I have found the jacket to be a very versatile piece. It works for me as a good mid layer. My most recent adventure was a ski trip where a few days started off a 5F and only got up to 20F. I was on the fence about whether it would be enough to layer between a lightly insulated shell (Burton Stagger 2L) and a merino layer (Arcteryx RHO 1/4 zip), but it did the trick. In the Fall, Spring and occasional Summer cool mornings or evenings I reach for this piece first. I like the full zip and the pockets are a huge plus in my opinion.

    What is the center back length of a medium?

    29 inches

    My favorite fleece!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    This is a very lightweight fleece. But the fabric is waffled so when you layer, it provides more warmth. Super versatile - a light layer alone and adds a lot of warmth when used with a shell. Quality and fit are great. I am 6' and 170 and the Medium is a perfect fit - Snug enough to layer and not too snug so looks great when worn as a jacket.

    Wishing for a little more

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: True to size

    I love arc' product, this however will be sent back. Feels slightly cheap. Fit is nice and fit but lacking drawstring in waist will lose the sale. I'll continue to buy other arc' product though

    I just received mine as well. Compared to the same style from two years ago, it is thinner and smaller. Will be returning.
