Great material, weird fit

    If you've been hitting the gym and pumping up be careful with the sizing on this number. I guess most Brits or Euro men are rail-thin because the arm-pits are extremely high and the sleeves themselves are extra slim. I own several Arcteryx jackets and this fits tighter and more awkwardly than any of them. The material, however, is 1st class. I'll be trimming down over the next few months so the fit should improve. For the time being, however, I can't fit a baselayer under this.

    If all you wear is Arcteryx then you may not realize that most Arcteryx jackets (as well as North Face and Patagonia to a lesser extent) are cut super big compared to other brands. Especially when compared to the European brands. For example I'm 5'8" and 150 lbs and I normally wear a Small or XS in Arcteryx shells like the Alpha SV and Theta AR but usually wear a Medium or even a Large in some cases for Mammut, Haglofs, Millet or Berghaus jackets.
    Not sure why there is a big discrepancy but it's always been like this for as long as I can recall.

    Does what it says on the cover

      Use this jacket for hiking and casual wear and it fits perfect. Completely windproof and with the vents open it's breathable, if a little warm. My only problem is the inside stitching for the vent zips really digs into my arms and took some work to fix. Otherwise a nice jacket.

      Windproof, but not breathable

        I probably perspire more than many, so I was looking for a light,breathable, vented jacket that I could wear when cross-country skiing. I found the Sella to be very windproof, which was good. Unfortunately it didn't breathe very well (this criticism may apply to all jackets with a Windstopper-type menbrane?). Even with the pit zips fully open, and appropriate moisture-wicking layers, I found that I couldn't disapate enough moisture when skiing in cool (32 to 15F) or colder conditions. I think it is a well designed jacket which would work very well in dry, windy conditions at more moderate levels of activity as suggested by Backcountry. I reluctantly returned the jacket (thanks to BC's great guaranteed return policy).
