Description

Essential cold-weather kit for anyone who moves quickly during fall or winter.

The Arc'teryx Men's Stryka Hoodie hugs your body close while you ascend a skin track, drop into a new trail, or backpack through crisp fall weather. Fluid in fit and detailed right down to the balaclava-style hood, this midweight hoodie fills in the gap in your layers between your thin next-to-skin layer and that heavyweight insulating layer you reach for when truly frigid weather rolls in.

  • Torrent fabric is synthetic so it dries quickly and helps move moisture away from your skin to the surface of the fabric so the moisture can evaporate quickly
  • Torrent fabric includes spandex for a flexible stretch that keeps this top close to your body for warmth
  • Balaclava hood sits close to your head so the hood easily fits under your outer layers or your helmet

Boyfriend loves it

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift, but have feedback to share
  • Fit: True to size

I bought this as a gift for my boyfriend. He loves the fit and the balaklava-style hood. Quality hoodie! Also, he looks great in it.

3 season comfort

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

I mainly ski in this layer and it works very well as a warmer base layer. I typically wear this under my shell down to temps in the mid 20's. Anything colder than that I wear another thicker mid layer over it. The material on this is stretchy and the inside micro fleece is very comfortable. The hood is awesome on really cold windy days where it blocks wind and blowing snow from going down your back. This layer is so comfortable that I wish I had one for everyday of the week. I basically live in this thing from fall to spring. Typical Arc-teryx quality that you can count on.

Love the fit & feel

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

I could live in this hoodie in fall & winter. It has an athletic, close fit which I like and is a little stretchy so it moves well with me. Looking forward to trying the balaclava hoodie under my snow hemet on a powder day.

How does this compare to the Patagonia R1 Hoody?

Responded on

I own both the R1 and the Stryka and I would say the R1 is lighter and allows for more airflow. The Stryka is a warmer base/mid layer. I have worn it over a t-shirt and as a base layer. It is very comfortable and does have a longer cut than the R1. I have a large which I can pull over my butt when wearing it as a standalone piece.

My chest size is right around 40" is this made to wear tight or loose? Not sure if I should get the medium or large.

Responded on

This is a "form fitting" piece, so it's meant to be a relatively tight fit, which leads me to recommend a medium for you.

That is not to say that this can not be worn in a larger size (large in your case) as more of a mid-layer with room underneath, for a base-layer. Hope this helps!

How thick is this compared to the Phase...

How thick is this compared to the Phase AR Hoody?

Responded on

This is about the same thickness/weight as a Phase AR Hoody. The Stryka Hoody is designed to be worn as a base layer and has mad amounts of stretch.

Responded on

I would have to say it is thicker than the Phase AR. It can be worn as a standalone piece if need be where as I wouldn't really wear the Phase as one. I would have to say it is a very advanced hoody.
