Arc'teryx Solano Jacket - Men's - 2008 BCS
The Arc'teryx Men's Solano Softshell Jacket protects you from a howling gale with its nylon face fabric and WindStopper membrane. Although the Solano Softshell Jacket adds warmth and wicking with a brushed polyester lining, it has smooth nylon inside the sleeves to eliminate bunching when worn over a base layer. Thanks to the thin, lightweight design of this Arc'teryx softshell, it provides plenty of breathability for a trail run or cross country ski tour. *Only available for US shipment.

I bought this jacket mainly for spring and fall climbs/hikes. I am 6'5 about 240 athletic build and have been a true champion to Arc'teryx due to their long hems and sleeves. This jacket looks great going to work or around town but is not meant for the ruggedness of the outdoors. The material seems to cheap in that a pricker could start a tear. I have to remind myself that not all products from Arc'teryx is meant to be "bomb proof".

I have bought this jacket some years ago, and it's a disappointment. I use arcteryx for shell, have a couple of jackets, and nothing beats their pants. Great fit and good products.
This one on the other hand was not. I'm 6'2", 180ibs and athletically buildt. Bought this jacket in L and found it to be too short, although this is what i use in my other arcteryx jackets. It's also way too tight in the armpits and not impressing in regards to wind-resistance.
The jacket looks nice, and maybe if I had bought one size larger then my normal arcteryx size it would fit me better. However, if you, like me, want a versatile, well tailored, wind resistant, soft shell jacket, look elsewhere.
