Nice spring jacket

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

Basically this is $450 down the tank, and I'm not real happy with it but stupidly I cut the tags.

The size is fine, and it looks real nice. My problem with it is it's billed as exceptionally warm when it's barely warmer than my EMS cloud splitter and is just barely adequate at 40 degrees. The insulation is thin and feels cheap and has performance to match.

I was hoping for something that was going to make a good 20-40 degree jacket for commuting / taking the kids out without the overkill / bulk / oven of my 800 fill mountain hardware. First run out after the holidays at 41 degrees just hanging around outside with the kids and I was getting cold and switched it out.

Conclusion: Alpine tech in an urban environment... if you are in Atlanta.

This jacket IS exceptionally warm. You would die in Atlanta if you wore this jacket. I'm going on my second winter in Northern Sweden (65�North) with this thing. I regularly get hot while walking and biking in sub-zero (10�F) temps. The insulation rightfully feels thin but is very lofty and luxurious. You could lie down in the snow and have a nap in this.

Technical City Living at it's Best

    If your a city slicker, but like to have the needed tech to keep you warm on frigid days then the new Arc'teryx 24 line is for you. Using the technical details that Arc'teryx employs in their best on-mountain equipment they have now developed a sleeker looking series of jackets and gear that will allow you to wear technical gear around town without looking like you just stepped off the tram in Zermatt.

    The Khuno provides warm and cozy synthetic insulation with a Gore Windstopper face fabric for those nasty days around town. The flap covered hand pockets on this piece are more vertical deep bellow pockets rather than true angled hand pockets. However, make no mistake, the storage in this jacket is ample. So, for days when your wool dress coat just won't cut it, grab the Khuno and feel confident that you can make it to the next "L" pick up on those cold and windy Chicago days.

    Almost Perfect

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times
    • Fit:True to size

    Pretty terrific parka. Warm enough for most winter in the U.S. lower 48. It would be challenged when the temps hit single digits though and definitely not for football games in Green Bay. It's a perfectly decent urban winter coat. Good clean styling. Awesome hood fits my massive (7 & 7/8 ) head and maintains good peripheral vision. Enough pockets to make it a decent winter travel coat and the two front pockets are cavernous (gloves, cap, maps, kindles, etc) and well insulated.

    I've heard quibbles about the lack of draw cord or wind skirt, but I don't miss that. Wore mine during a blizzard in NYC last Feb. Lots of wind and snow, and it performed like a champ. Highly weather resistant also.

    Quibble 1: I'm 5'10", about 200lbs. The XL fits me with just enough room for a sweater, though the sleeves are a bit tight.

    Quibble 2: The outer fabric seems very durable, but man is it noisy. Very swishy, but I don't mind that much.

    Overall VERY happy with this coat.

    Great Urban Coat

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit:True to size

    This is a good looking and understated jacket to wear if you live in an area where the winter temps can get regularly into the sub freezing zone with substantial winds. The cut is very generous so it is easy to layer including suit coats or sweaters. The finish will easily handle sleet and snow and if it's warm enough to be raining, this probably is overkill. The double zip makes the coat's length manageable if you are vehicle commuting. It would seriously benefit from the addition of a waist draw string, and a bottom draw string. The side pockets are cavernous and divided into inner and outer pocket by a zipper which is covered by a flap. The face fabric works well at blocking wind and shedding light moisture but is noisy. All in all, this warm and durable jacket works well for it's stated purpose of urban wear and is a fair value when on sale.

    Light Parka

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times

    I got the parka a few weeks ago. I find it warm enough for quite cold Norwegian winters, and with enough room for layering. I am 5"8 and use the small size and the jacket covers my seat. It is very light weight considering the warmth. The two issues I have is that it is a bit noizy, and I also would like som elastic band in the bottom.

    Khuno Exceeded Expectations

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times

    I have worn my Khuno jacket several times in the mountains of Virginia in temperatures from 20 to 30 degrees in windy conditions. I felt warm and the jacket is definitely wind proof. It replaced a Patagonia Hoody Down jacket and it definitely is my preference at this point in time. Ease of movement with my arms is exceptional. The 5 pockets are appreciated. The hood takes some getting used to but does well after adjustments are made. Overall I appreciate the quality of this rather expensive Arcteryx parka.

    I would like to know if this jacket is waterproof and if it can provide me enough warmth(combined with a mid layer fleece sweter).I am intend to use it in mid mountaineering expeditions and in cold weather conditions.As I will spend the next winter in Northern Europe I would like to know if it is suitable for the purposes I need it for.

    hi I have a size question! I am wearing,...

    hi I have a size question! I am wearing, atom sv, medium size. I wonder I should wear Small for this jacket. I was told it's very roomy as a relaxed fit. I tried Fission SV small at the store and it seems fit well. I couldn't have a chance to try this model. I am 5"9 and 163 lbs. any thought? Thanks.

    Hi Jon,

    It sounds to me like a small in the Khuno would be the ideal size for you, but unfortunately, we're all out of those. I would recommend you check out the Kappa Jacket, as it is both insulated and waterproof like the Khuno. See it here:

    Sorry about that! Good luck on your jacket quest.

    Im interested in purchasing, and I like the style and relaxed fit since I am a big guy. My question this suitable for skiing?

    Yeah, you certainly could ski in it--it's got a waterproof exterior, high-quality synthetic insulation, and a nice mid-thigh length.

    That being said, you might find that there are jackets more suited to if you're hoping to snag a coat that you can wear to the office on Friday and take it up the mountain on Saturday, this jacket is absolutely ideal. If you think you'd like features like a powder skirt, RECCO reflectors, etc--I might look for a jacket more in line.

    How does this jacket compare to the Fission...

    How does this jacket compare to the Fission AR and Fission SV in terms of length? The description says it's 30.75in (backlength) but the Fission AR is listed as 30in. This can't be right, as I have the Fission AR and it sits right at the hips. So, can someone tell me what the correct length is on the Khuno and the Fission SV so that I can compare them both to my Fission AR?


    I have the Fission SV in medium. Measuring from the bottom of the collar to the lowest point of the jacket, I measure just shy of 31". I'm 5'7" and the jacket just covers my seat. I'm normally a small in Arcteryx jackets but purchased the medium just to get that extra bit of seat coverage.


    I am considering this jacket or the new...

    I am considering this jacket or the new NF Vostok jacket. How warm is coreloft 140? Will this beat a 700 fill down jacket and allow me to wear just a long sleeve button up for work underneath and be warm on a single digit or teens day in the chicago winter? Thanks everyone

    Best Answer

    I have a Venta AR which has wind stopper and a fleece backer and it is warm down to about the mid 30's. I add an Atom LT which only has a 60 fill core loft and that takes me to the upper teens. Below that I use full GoreTex Pro insulated with 80 fill core loft. I say all that to say the new N80x wind stopper and a140 fill of core loft of the Khuno Parka should be incredibly warm and should easily take you down to single digits or below. I think the Fission SV would be the only other coat to consider but it is not nearly as urban design friendly and runs another $200 more. I hope that helps.
