Zipper stash

The small zippered pocket on the left side (mostly hidden by the large pocket in front) perfectly fits a phone and/or a wallet. Great for traveling!

Easy & Breezy!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Height: 5' 5"
    Weight: 110 lbs
    Size Purchased: Extra Small

Size Ref: 5' 4.75", between 108-112, ~34A, generally wear a size 0/XS in dresses. I have this dress in a size XS. I've used this dress for running errands around town, traveling, hiking and camping, and even for fancy nights out—in fact, the fabric looks richer than that of any other 'little black dress' I own.

FIT: This dress fits in a unique way compared to typical dresses one finds at run-of-the-mill stores at the mall. It has a kind of modern 'drop waist' fit that actually stays where you want it when you tighten the drawstring, and it’s long enough to wear it at your natural waist on a hot day (for me, I wear yoga shorts or leggings underneath when I wear it that high and my fingertips hit the end of the skirt). I have about a +1 ape index and when I wear it closer to my the top of my hips, it's about 3 inches from my fingertips, so there's pretty good coverage (and I'm picky about coverage). With regard to the top of the dress, the fit in the chest is very comfortable for me (I have a smaller cup size) and the neckline is quite pretty. If you go out for a big lunch or dinner in this dress, the stylish draping hides a full tummy without looking baggy. Finally, I think the fit of this dress is especially flattering for athletic builds—sometimes dresses from mainstream clothing brands accentuate muscles in unflattering ways, and this dress doesn’t hide them, but rather nicely complements them.

PERFORMANCE: The performance of this fabric and dress with regard to temperature regulation is exquisite. Even in the bright Colorado sun, this dress is so breezy that I have never been uncomfortable temperature-wise. In a way, it's so breezy you feel like you’re only in your underwear in big gusts! Plus, it dries super quickly; it's probably the fastest-drying garment I own. The drawstring is flawless and the metal pieces that guide the string feel and look sturdy. As for the pockets, well, these guys deserve their own section.

POCKETS: Incredible pockets. I love putting my hands in pockets, especially in a dress that has 'em. The two hand pockets are great in this--perfect placement, nice and deep, and even quite stylish themselves with their geometric seaming. The Arc'teryx logo shimmers proudly in a subtle position on the left hand pocket. Also on the left side is, what I think, the best feature of this dress: a zip stash. It fits both my wallet and phone--perfect for those who don't like carrying a purse!

CONS: Unfortunately, the arm holes are quite restricting on me when I reach my arms forward. The small was a little too big everywhere else, so I thought I'd bite the bullet on a little discomfort. I do notice this restriction when I hike and am moving my arms a lot when I'm going downhill, but other than that it doesn't bother me too much (but I'd give it a 4.5 stars if I could for this quality). See pic for the oddly small sleeve(less) opening. Another related problem I’ve noticed is that if you’re hiking and taking very big strides, you can really tell that the fabric needs some stretch in the bottom half; as it is, this garment has very little stretch--you can also definitely notice this quality when you put the dress on and take it off.

Easy & Breezy!

Great summer dress

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

This dress is adorable! Very light weight and comfortable. Perfect for summer. I love the pockets! I am not a dress person and this is something I am very comfortable wearing out and about on a warm day. I am 5'6", 120 and the small fits perfectly.
