Great jacket, when you need it
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: Large
This is a great, very warm jacket. I live in Jackson Hole, WY, and I've never been cold when wearing this jacket (long exposure in temps down to -20 F). The only downsides I've identified: (1)The sleeves are a touch long (common for Arcteryx), which can cause the sleeve to bunch. (2) The extreme warmth comes at a cost: The jacket is slightly bulky/cumbersome and does not pack down very small. In all, if you're looking for warmth in extreme cold, this jacket is great, but if you're looking for something to wear in 20F degrees or above, I'd go with a more simple and compressible down jacket.
