Near perfect.

I love this jacket. I've tried a ton of different jackets on many ski trips and settled on this one. Personally, the small fits me perfect. I'm 5'8" and 165lbs. It has just the right amount of bagginess and length for me. One thing I also really like about it over the other hardshells Arcteryx makes is the soft shell that's slightly lined with microfleece on the inside. It's not a huge amount, but I've found that it really gives that extra tad of warmth and softness that is really great to have on a long day riding cold lifts. It's a perfect winter shell, but I wouldn't use it in the summer or warmer months for this same reason.

Giant pockets fit anything in there, zippers are fantastic, material is bomber enough to scrape trees, and color is great. Love it.

Near perfect.

Hey Phil what pants are you wearing in this pic?

Responded on

They're the Flylow Magnum BC pant- great pants but had a few durability issues after a season- the seam tape started peeling, so I sent back and they're currently repairing the pants.

Interesting enough I too had an issue with FlyLow Seam tape on my chemical pants. Just sent them back and they are repairing. No cost so that is cool.

Yeah I don't think they'll be charging me either. I haven't seen the repair yet but hopefully it will be good quality.
