The quality, the fit and the features are outstanding but I'm beyond bummed that its made in China! I like supporting jobs locally which was one of my reasons for choosing arcteryx. So this is the only flaw with this jacket. Some may not understand why its a flaw but outsourcing along with the footprint it takes to travel here isn't anything that is helping the economy or environment.
I am 6'3", 230 and bought the xl in nightshade. Backcountry offered free 2 day shipping which was a bonus. The fit is superb. I was worried as I usually buy jackets in tall but this fits awesome!
