Kyanite Hooded Fleece Jacket

From crisp fall days at the crag to deep powder days on the mountain, enjoy the comfort and freedom of the Arc'teryx Men's Kyanite Hooded Fleece Jacket. This streamlined fleece offers lightweight warmth and total mobility whether you layer it under a shell or wear it as a standalone piece.

Polartec Power Stretch Pro traps heat and stretches effortlessly to keep up with your movements when you're skiing, hiking, or climbing. It manages moisture to keep heat-robbing dampness from leaving you cold and clammy, and it also breathes well to keep you from overheating during arduous ascents. It's ready for your toughest adventures with a nylon face for abrasion-resistance on close encounters with rocks and brush, as well as an articulated design and underarm gussets for added mobility on tricky climbing routes. The close-fitting ScubaHood keeps your dome warm and fits comfortably under a hood, and the hand pockets sit high on your torso so you can access them while wearing a backpack or harness.

Nice style; horrible zipper

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

There appears to be a serious design defect on this jacket - they used a non-locking zipper, so anytime there's even a slight amount of stretch put into the fabric (and they use a stretchy fabric), it immediately comes unzipped.

I tried going through Arc'teryx warranty service to get this fixed. I sent the jacket to them on May 8, and after numerous emails, they promised to send me a new one. I received the replacement today (July 13) - SEVENTY FIVE days later. And it has not been fixed. The jacket still unzips under the smallest amount of pressure. So frustrated.

Perfect Hoody

This has hands down become my go to hoody. Great as a mid layer for really cold days, but my primary use has been casual wear for brisk spring days. Love the soft fleece material and stretch.

Super Comfy!

I recently picked a Kyanite up a few weeks ago and am blown away at how comfortable it is. The fleece is super soft and has a bunch of stretch to it, so it's not restricting at all when being active in it. Super pumped on this midweight layer!

Light, Warm, and Awesome

Love it on its own and layered underneath either the Solano or Atom SL. Looking forward to trying in colder temps with the Atom LT and a hardshell. Plan on purchasing another in the different color.

Exceptional Fleece

Love this Hoody! The fit is athletic as stated in the specs, great layering piece under my Gamma MX. The jacket really moves with you with an incredible amount of stretch. It is much warmer than I had expected for such a light and thin piece (I don't know how they do it! Thanks Arc'teryx) The hood is nice and snug but doesn't hinder movement and is super soft as is the rest of the jacket. My favorite part is the thoughtful design of the pockets, they have a soft face against your hands but mesh backing which really let you vent excess heat when unzipped, genius! This, for a fleece, ranks right up there with my Atom LT for midlayer bliss!
