All over Michigan
I have a 32" waist slim build and have the medium. My meat & potatoes have never broke free as some of the other reviews say. These fit me good not to tight and not loose either. The only reason not for giving them five stars is the crotch length is to long. I like my briefs to sit just above my hips not my waist, so to me it feels like im saggin my briefs wich is bad. I have a happy median for them now and life is good.
Really soft does well under my snowboard pants. The length I thought was slightly long but not bothersome. These are definatly a true medium weight.
A supreme jacket on the hill, or around town. The best feature besides it's style, function, and versatility it's made in North America! (Canada, ehh) The fabric is great breathes awsome and still protects like a champ from the rain and snow, needs a reco reflector though. Otherwise super easy to care for and the fabric is less crinkly than gore pro shell.
The length is still around waist, so a shorter cut. I wouldn't consider it to be a boxy jacket at all, it's a slim fit, but boxy no. I'm 5'8" and own a medium. A super nice jacket for the money.
I'm 5'9" around 158 and I own A medium Mirage and it fits awsome! Not baggy a slim fit on me, with great sleave length and hip/waist length cut.
This headlamp has great lighting options to suit just about anyone. The lamps batt life is very nice and it sits well on the noggin. Only thing I can see they need to improve is the batt door, it fits very tight to the point I have slight stress marks on the cover. Other than this issue its performed very well.
A great pack with cool features. Fits everything you need, with a removable and wearable hydro pack and top lid as a waist pack.
There is also alot of adjustment everywhere from shoulders to waist and internal and external pack compresion. This thing loves to cary big loads and it does it well. Onlything is the custon heat molded belt being closed cell foam and a little stiffer than others with open cell could be bothersome if not formed correctly to the user.
Warm, durable, soft, and a hint of Cocona.. I'm 5-8 the med fit great, a little long but no problems.
These are warm, very well made and comfy. Nice full length leg zips and scuff gaurd were its needed. They offer really good motion and they fit true to size, not very baggy so no need to layer up any more than a pair of power stretch pants undernieth. The length is good not to long but not to short. Only reason there not 5 star is I was hoping for a little room in them and pockets but still really happy anyway.
These pants actualy ship with Primaloft One. I dont know why all the adds say PL2?
These pants are very soft to the touch and dont become crinkly like the pro-shell does. A lite fleece liner keeps the chill away. They are a roomy cut great to ride in. Another fine Arc'teryx product, just wish they would have made them in black cause the blackbird is a strange color. I exchanged mine and got the brown wich goes better with my jackets...
This jacket fits awsome! You can wear it with thick layers under it or just as a stand alone on warmer wet days. The cut is very roomy so if you don't want a baggie look go down a size. If you snowboard though you'll appriciate it!! The only room for improvement would be to add a reco reflector.. Otherwise Marmot nailed it with this jacket.
I have a Genesis and love it, but the Arc'teryx does have its advantages. The genisis doesn't have a snow skirt, or reco reflector, and the cut is waist high not hip. So if your looking for a ski/snowboard jacket the Arc'teryx is the way to go, as the genisis is geared more to climbing. As for breathability and watersheading the genisis is made with marmots m1 softshell wich is there most wind and water resistant and it works great, however if you sweat like a pig or wear it above 50f. you might have a problem. Hope this helps.
Well just got the coat today, and it looks cool but... Here is why it only 3 stars, the material in the tech specs say its made from Polartec power shield, I could not for the life of me find any tags or eblems on the coat that could verify this so typeo on B.C. Now the fit/cut of the Medium in the torso of the coat was almost perfect to wear alone or layer up underneath. The sleaves on the otherhand were way small and im a skinny guy, and had a hard time fitting a TNF TKA100 fleece underneath it. Seemed to me like you could only be comfy with a t-shirt or base layer wich was disapointing to me considering the body of the coat fit so well. So bottom line the coat would be damn near perfect if the sleaves were a bit baggier cut to match the body.
Ya, all there stuff is China, China, China.. :(
I have the medium 2009 Zeus in black, and it is no way shiny! A flatt black is all. Now my Marmot Baffin jacket looks like I rolled in a oil slick, but I wear it for a non down insulator and the black was on sale..
Our these the 2010 model or 09? Also what are the differences between last years model and this the currant model?
Just got it in the mail couple days ago, and it's super comfy. The med is perfect size, i'm 5-9 158. Only thing I was kinda hopeing is the torso length would be a little longer but oh well, it's cut is geared more to climbing. Also it's made to just have a light layer under it so no bulky mid layers.
