Bomber but big

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I own about 9 Arc'teryx pieces and they all vary greatly in fit. This jacket is bomb-proof and will probably weather anything nature can throw at you. I returned it due the fact that it fits Huge. I always buy XL (6-6, 210 lbs) so I can layer. But this jacket has so much extra room that I felt lost in it. It also is kind of overkill for 95% of the time I need a shell. I wore it on Rainier and Mt Washington but I could have gotten by with a lighter shell. I ended up getting an Alpha LT for Winter and an Alpha FL for Summer.

Responded on

Considering all the extra room, would you recommend this for layering or just downsize anyways?
