Just got my Arcadia today. First impression is that it is very form fitting.. I got it for Ireland in October and am slightly concerned about layering, it is definitely just a shell. On the same note, its nice that its not baggy and hanging off of me and because of the waterproofing it is quite warm.
I got the Columbia/White and it is exactly as pictured on the site, which is a great color combo, the white along the side is very flattering.
I know some people didn't like the mesh lining, but I think its nice. Its very silky, definitely wont irritate my skin at all. I also don't have a problem with it bunching up in the hood. Also, the fact that it doesn't roll up and tuck away isn't really an issue for me. In regards to the Velcro strip on the back of the hood, that is an extra way to make the hood custom fit for your head, which I think is awesome! It keeps the front of the hood from falling in your eyes, which happens on a lot of hoods.
I will come back and update this review after the Ireland trip, hopefully it only gets more positive!
