- Q & A
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: True to size
Love the bright color & cut of this jacket. Very thin but perfect as a wind break or rain jacket.
She loves it
- Fit: True to size
I got this as a gift for my good friend and she loves it. We went to Moab for a weekend right after she got this and it was pouring rain for two days straight. This is the only jacket she wore and she stayed dry the whole time. She has worn it multiple times since then but this was the first big test and she was very impressed with this jackets performance. She would definitely recommend it to anyone thinking about purchasing.
I bought this shell for my wife. I have an alpha FL and Beta LT, both with proshell. Her Beta LT in some ways seems more durable. Great fit and solid feel. Pit zips are a plus, as is the Beta AR type drop hood. All in all a great piece, especially for the money.
Would this be a good top layer ski jacket.
Hi Hannah, Although not a ski specific jacket, this would make a good outer layer for skiing. It is GoreTex so it will be highly waterproof and breathable. It is also hood compatible. Arc'teryx does have a ski specific line if you'd like to check those out you can do so here - http://www.backcountry.com/womens-ski-snowboard-jackets?p=brand%3AArc%27teryx&nf=1. If you have any other questions, please feel free to reach out to me directly and I'll get you taken care of. - Matthew Pizza - Expert Gearhead
Do I need to size up to fit a puffy underneath? I would wear either a patagonia nano air or a patagonia ultralight down as a midlayer for high alpine snow travel.
These are cut with layering in mind so I wouldn't size up unless you are in between sizes. Any of the layers that you mentioned would work well with this jacket. Get a hold of me directly if you have any other questions.
