I bought this jacket for my wife because she needed a good solid jacket that she could go snowshoeing in but then still look classy, and this jacket definitely delivers. Right out of the box the jacket is much different than your standard soft shell. The outer material is very very flexible, almost feels and moves like a sweatshirt. The zippers and pockets seem pretty sturdy and the thick fleece on the inside was actually much thinner than we were expecting. It's almost like a short shag carpet, but it actually does a great job keeping her warm. The DWR coating seems to do its job, she's been in a few drizzles and the water beads and then rolls off.
There are a few big flags with it though, the main one being the huge "made in china" tag on the inside. This would actually be a huge deal breaker for me if I had ordered this jacket, but my wife seems willing to give it a go. It's not as though it seems like a shoddily sewn jacket, but Chinese produced goods never seem to hold up nearly as well as American made, and to shell out hundreds of dollars for a jacket it better hold up.If it wasn't for arc'teryx's fantastic warranty I would have sent it back regardless of what my wife thinks. We do plan on putting this jacket to the test if anything just to see how their Chinese produced goods hold up. Also the sizing is a tad off, at first we ordered the medium, and while it fit around the waist, the arms were almost ridiculously short. We bumped up to a large and the sleeves were ok but she had a lot of room in the waist (she's 5'9" 155).
All in all a decent jacket, we'll just see how it holds up to a little wear and tear
This was my first Arc'teryx jacket ever. I practically stole it from SAC last Spring and have worn it at least a few times a week ever since.I agree with the reviewers on Arc'teryx sizing issues for us tall girls. I have discovered that I can only wear their jackets because the tops and vests are all too short. I am 5'11" and about 170 with an athletic build and I usually wear a medium top, but the sleeves and length on this jacket were too short in a medium so I sized up to a large. I'm glad I did because I can layer underneath it. It's still a bit short for my preference (when I raise my arms above my head a couple inches of my stomach is exposed) and I don't wear it as a light ski jacket, as I was hoping to do, but as a casual jacket it's so warm and soft and perfect and even up a size it still has a cute, flattering fit.I have worn it a couple times as a super warm layer under my ski shell but the hood is big and kind of gets in the way. It's definitely soft and flexible enough to make a good layering piece, but if you're going to layer I'd go for the hoodless version. I've also washed it around five times now and it still looks brand new and beads water fantastically. Go, Arc'teryx! I'm so sold.
Just an update: since the last review, I actually returned the medium Neptune Sky color (which I don't even think they are offering anymore) in exchange for a small Black Hyllus. The Black is different than the Carbon Copy - I think it is darker, and has a lighter blue lining and very light blue zips . In the online pictures it shows up as white but it is actually a light blue. I exchanged it because I wanted a color that would go with more things (a little more formal), and I wanted a little more formfitting of a jacket. I am 5'6" 130 lbs, A cup, and the small is perfect - I can actually still fit a small atom hoody under it + a baselayer (then you are really toasty!). I really love this jacket so far! It is a great weight - still pretty portable, but definitely very warm. So far I've worn it down to 30 degrees and it is actually a little too warm if you have a baselayer on and are being pretty active. That being said, you will be chilly if you wear it with only a tshirt and are just standing there in 20-30 degree weather. Very comfy though. A little stiffer than the atom, but that's to be expected because it has wind protection. The sleeves are the perfect length and subtly taper to not let drafts in. Love it!
I bought this in the middle of summer because it was on sale (still $260 though - yikes!). I rarely if ever buy such expensive gear, especially a hoody, but I researched this one very carefully before making my decision. I got a medium in Neptune Sky and love the color, style, etc. It seems like it will go well with everything, but with the orange inside and raspberry zippers, has a kind of urban street cool. It fits me really well (5'6", 130 lbs) with room for a very light underlayer (maybe I will spring for the Atom hoody in the future?). The fit seems great, it is really cute on - we'll see how it holds up when it gets colder and I am actually using it! I'll update my review after a cold Boston winter and let you guys know. I hoping for this to be my layer for cold but not freezing days, which we get a lot of in Boston. I have a big Marmot down coat for the REAL dead of winter; it isn't as stylish and makes me look like a big blue marshmallow, but always does the job.
I can honestly say it is one of the best soft shell jackets I own. I am 5'5" and weigh 140 with a larger chest. As a result most jackets have a tendency to look really boxy or shapeless once I get them on. I ordered the large so that I could also wear more layers under it if I wanted to. The cut is not boxy at all and has a nice shape to it. It goes down lower in the back which allows for better coverage. The inside is a super soft fleece that makes this jacket nice and warm. It is moderately water proof so as long as you are not in a torrential downpour you are good. I got the dark grey color with the raspberry colored zippers, can't remember exactly which color that was. It is very flattering and I have received many compliments on it since. It has become my go to jacket.
This jacket is nice! After reading reivews on several different sites regarding the slim fit, I decided to order a medium. I have an Arcteryx Alpha SL, Alpha LT, Beta SL, and Atom LT--all size small. I'm 5'4" and 105lbs. Turns out the medium is just right. It's only slightly large around the hem, but can be adjusted with the elastic bungie. I'm sure I could wear a small, but I wanted this to fit like a jacket, not a sweater. I don't like form-fitting clothes. If you do, then go with your regular size. The jacket is beautiful and feels great on. I can hardly wait for fall!
I've been waiting to buy this jacket for a while and was finally able to buy it on a great discount. I got the Neptune Sky and I love the colors, though warning the orange is more neon than the pictures have shown. I haven't been able to test it on all weather conditions but since this fall, it has kept me very warm. Sometimes more warm then I would like. Since it is starting to get colder, I am amazed at how well it does to keep me warm though. I can wear just a long sleeved, thin shirt and still feel toasty.
I LOVE this jacket. I am very petite, just over 5' tall, and it is challenging to find items that fit my body type. This jacket hits just at the hip and isn't too long. The hood is awesome and extends just beyond the forehead. Nice, snug fit. A bit tight below the armpits and when the neck is fully zipped, but I am hoping the fabric will give a little with time and wear. Great for layering with light stuff underneath. A little snug for layering with a sweater or heavy sweatshirt. Perfect for all around wear and travel!
Love this cozy coat. It's fleece lined so pretty thick but it breathes terrifically. I was a little wary at first because it doesn't have the features of many other soft shells - pit zips, thumb holes, wrist protectors, etc - but it's really great. I love it for around town as well as hiking, snow shoeing, etc. Size-wise, I'm 5'8" and usually a size 4 but the medium is good on this. I can fit a bunch of layers underneath but it's fine with just a base layer too.
Love this jacket! Have gotten many compliments from both genders on my new black jacket. Btw, the blue in the pic is not nearly as blue as it appears. It's almost a tourqoise color. At first, I wasnt' sure but it quickly grew on me. Just wish it didn't cost so much.
Let me start by saying that I love Arcteryx. I have the Atom SV hoody and am in love with it. I am 5'7"/125 - a street size 4 and athletic. I purchased this in a small and the sleeves were a bit short (I have long arms and legs) and the Neptune Sky that appears more of a grey tone on the website is rather brown. The pockets are too high for my taste and overall, I found this to be a seriously overpriced jacket for Arcteryx. Also, the entire interior is a fuzzy bright orange color including the interior of the hood. I returned it - too much money for something that I wasn't in love with.
This is one fine jacket - stylish, warm, functional, and with a flattering fit. My wife loves this gift I got for her. Only gripe is the price - this really should sell for around half of what it lists for. Personally I see better value in my TNF Sentinel Thermal Jacket - price more in line, similar fleece backing material and the bonus of a Gore Windstopper membrane for exceptional performance. Fortunately for us we got the Arcteryx jacket at a steep discount due to a discontinued color.
