I was really excited to get this jacket and thought it would be a great addition. I like the styling, fit, and feel of the jacket. As stated in other reviews it has a very athletic cut. The main thing I did not like however was when I got out into the wind. This jacket does not seem to cut the wind very well and on a chilly day this is not what you want to grab out of your closet unless you plan on layering under a windproof shell. This is the first Arcteryx product that I have been disappointed in and would not recommend. I have one of the NorthFace Apex Bionic jackets and feel like it delivers better performance at a lower cost. One last complaint is that there are no velcro cuff closures on the sleeves. Maybe I am being too hard on this jacket, but after falling in love with the arcteryx hardshells I expected this jacket to do more than just look nice.
