Nice coat, bad pockets
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: Medium
For as pricey as this lovely jacket is, you think they would figure out a place to put a phone. All the features are what you would want and expect on a super pricey Arc'teryx ski jacket, however the pocket situation is ridiculous. Two hand pockets, 1 ski pass pocket on the sleeve, inside open top (not secure/closable) stuff pocket, and an inside zippered chest pocket only big enough to hold a credit card and small phones. I refuse to put my phone in an open stuff pocket, and a phone in a glove pocket on this jacket would restrict movement/and or be uncomfortable.
when skiing, hiking, etc. and be at risk for breakage in a fall.
Inside zippered pocket measures 4 x 5.5" and zippered opening is 4.5" on the 5.5" side. Phone has to be inserted and turned horizontally to fit. Will fit an iPhone 5 or smaller, but if you have a 6 in a bulky case or a Plus or X, forget it. If you always carry a backpack, this coat is for you.
