This hybrid is amazing! I wanted the waterproof ability of a Gore-Tex without the bulkiness of actually wearing a large hardshell. Freedom of movement and the combination of a lightweight shell makes this the best jacket I ever owned. Even in a freezing downpour this jacket kept me dry and had the versatility of being able to be used as a softshell.

I wear this over an Arc'teryx Gamma MX and Maverick. It's never bulky heavy and it doesn’t get in the way. It's just a perfect size over my fleece and softshell.

The adjustments with the hood are second to none. I just love what Arc’teryx did with it. The welded seams, soft inner lining, waterproofing, adjustable hood, and light weight of this hybrid is everything I wanted rolled into one. This is easily the best product I have from Arc’teryx.

This softshell is great. It’s waterproof, and it has a snug fit and great flexibility. I can see why it's a best seller here. You gotta love the soft inner lining.

Pretty expensive for a softshell but it’s worth it.

My only gripe is that the color black is not really all black, but the two front pocket panels is like gray. That's just my style, oh well.

Definitely a great waterproof softshell.

Despite what it the specs say I managed to pill the lower front of the fleece. Kinda expensive for a fleece that pills after a few months. I don't even run much, just a morning jog five days a week.

It's terrific as a covering over a T-shirt base layer. It's almost like another shirt. The thing I love the most is the soft felt lining on the chin guard. Props to that. Welded lining is also a plus.

It's fit for a "slim" person, meaning that it's almost like a wet suit if you're wearing anything long-sleeve under it. I'm a skinny runner (5'9" 145lb) so if a large is tight on me I can't imagine others wearing the same size. Although, I would believe anyone getting this high-priced of a "performance" wear is not a couch potato.

The only thing I wish for is more pockets. Oh well, that wasn’t what I bought it for, it’s supposed to be a base layer under my softshell.

Despite my huge concern about the pilling, this is definitely a great fleece.
