You should see just how cool the Gold Medal color looks in real life. I don't know how many people ask me where I got this and tell me how good it looks (not to brag). The very first thing I noticed when I tried this on was that this is WARM! I almost didn't need any other jacket or sweater when I was walking around outside in 30degree weather. The texture is extremely soft and looks great too. It is a little pricey for what you could get for another brand or whatnot but as with most anything Arc'teryx, it is very very nice quality. You spend a little more money for something that will last ALOT longer. I highly recommend this.
