Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
I've owned many wind-breaker-shell like most of us, and this is my favorite. The fabric feels good on the skin unlike most glossy ripstops. This has a matte finish, and has some mechanical(no lycra, all nylon) stretch to it. It's quiter in the wind too .
The hood I was hesitant at first sight. I've not met a "one cord does all" that fit the way I wanted, but this does . The zipper is very easy to use with one hand.
Rain resistence is very very good. Breathability , of course relative to each person, I find very good.
If you're comparing this with the Houdini, well, don't. Ahahaha ! The fit of this is trimmer, and the matte fabric w/mechanical stretch is a huge improvement over the glossy ripstop and well worth the extra dollars.
For fit, I requested this from Acr Teryx, and they answered !
"Thank you for contacting Arc'teryx. Here are the measurements for the Squamish Hoody:"
The chest of the Large I received in Oxblood appears measured by them right at the arm pit, and it tapers from there. I measured 1" below the seam across the chest just below the pocket, and measured 48"/120cm.
