These looked like the perfect running tights, but the ankle area is so small and doesn't stretch, I couldn't get it over my heel. I don't understand how this got through product testing without the ankle area having some stretch. I managed to get one leg on, and they felt good and otherwise look like they would have been perfect. Bit of a bummer, expected better from Arc'teryx.

This is a great first layer, its ultra thin so its good for warm ski days, or sunny days backpacking where you need a long sleeve but don't want to get too hot. It dries quickly too.
I recently took this shirt backpacking and wore it as my only top layer on a sunny but windy day. What surprised me the most is that when our trail became extremely overgrown and I was having to push my way through tall scrub and branches, the rho sl never snagged. After bushwhacking for quite some time the rho sl came out looking like new.

This is a great looking vest that packs great warmth. I love it so much I even wear it to work. Fits nicely under my shell to keep me warm while out in the winter elements. The cut of this vest is really nice, its a more fitted cut so it looks stylish, but also keeps it close to your body for warmth. The fleece lined pockets are my favorite, makes you want to warm your hands in there all the time.

This is a fantastic jacket, super waterproof and windproof. Its not only functional but stylish as well. I use this jacket for skiing, winter hiking, and backpacking. It's pretty lightweight for such a feature heavy jacket as well.
The stowaway hood is nice, at first I thought the hood in its stowed position might be annoying against my neck, as you can feel it at first. But once it was stowed and I went on with my activities I never even noticed it.
My only small concern is the zipper flap on the inside of the jacket at the top. Its rather large, and while it has a soft fleece feel it is also very stiff. This can sometimes poke out and hit your chin, but its only sometimes and pretty minor. Not a big enough deal to where I would not buy the jacket again, but it is something maybe arc'teryx can revist on the next generation of this jacket. Having the zipper go to the side is super cool though.

I was initially intrigued by this fleece jacket because it had pit zips, I figured that would be a nice to have. Unfortunately I ended up returning the jacket because the zippers for the pit zips were very large and you could feel them under your arms. It felt as the sleeves had some wires going under your arms, and your arms didn't feel relaxed at your sides. A fleece should be comfortable and soft and this felt a bit awkward. I think marmot should have invested in some very small and very flexible zippers and then this fleece would have been fine.
