I am 5'10 about 165 pounds. what size would you recommend? I like to have plenty of room for a down sweater or fleece and not feel restricted.
I am 5'9- 160 lbs. What size do you recommend?
What length do you recommend? 5'10 - 165lbs
Very nice jacket. Very durable, I am 5'10-160lbs bought a medium. The jacket fit great except the sleeves went down almost over my fingers. I know it is better to have a longer than shorter sleeve length. These are just too long for my liking. Around the knuckles is perfect. The jacket fit great every were else. Can layer a down sweater or fleece and still have a nice range of motion. But for 600 dollars it better fit great every were.. had to return it. One of the best hardshells out there if it fits.
This jacket does is exactly what the name says. It breathes incredibly well. It does have pit zips. Blocks the wind and sheds moisture really well. I will agree with the other review on the fit. Little tight in the shoulders. No strectch. I sized up to a large. The jacket has a great storm hood and nice face coverage. Great dual chest pockets. Rab designed this jacket for Ski touring/mountaineering. The Red color is pretty cool, has blackish grey on the sides. Looking foward to getting out into the backcountry with this jacket. You cant go wrong with the price
This is a very nice Jacket. Love all the pockets. 2 chest, 2 hands, 1 internal security pocket which is used to stuff the whole jacket into for packing. It has 2 internal stretch water bottle pockets. Great down hood with brim that is fully adjustable. Fully welded baffles eliminate stitching. Pertex endurance wich is 100 percent windproof and 1000mm water column. Highly water resistant and very breathable. All the zippers run really smooth. The main front zip can be zipped up from the bottom if needed. Great lightweight and very durable down jacket the packs down small for how warm it is. Not sure on the fill weight but I guessing around 300 grams. Love this Jacket.
I was debating between this jacket and the Atom Lt. I really like versatility of the 100 grams of insulation. Works as a great layering piece or can be worn on its own for almost every day of the winter here in the Rocky Mountains. The jacket feels very light on. Packs down really small. The main zipper is very smooth. The elastic on the cuffs are perfect. The hand warmer pockets have a nice fleece patch for the back of your hands. A couple of things I like over the Atom Lt. The Sv has really soft fleeced lined chin area. The Sv also has a fully adjustable hood were the Lt has no adjustments. 2 huge pluses for me. The jacket fits perfect in medium. 5`10 - 160lbs. I have the Alpha Lt shell in medium and the Sv fits perfect under it. Another amazing jacket from Arc'teryx
Great cold weather Jacket for aerobic activities. It blocks the wind, Breathes incredibly well. the collar is perfect height and really traps the heat in when fully zipped. This jacket stretches better than any soft shell I have worn. I like the pockets and the location.Awesome articultion in the elbows. I feel Polartec Power Sheild is the perfect mix of wind,weather protection and breathability. I Really like this Jacket
I have had this jacket since it came out a few years ago. This is a perfect 4 season shell thats very durable and light. I can wear it with a light base layer or a down sweater and the fit is perfect. Great articulation in the elbows. Love the storm hood. You can really dial it in to perfection when its nasty out. The brim on the hood is perfect. There is a reason Arc'teryx is so expensive. They use the best materials,have the best articulation(range of motion). The fit and finish is the best I have seen. The Jacket has a really smooth outer face and the tiny stitching is amazing. Really pleased with this Jacket.
This thing is SWEET. I was a little skeptical on how heavy this jacket is. Its a ski Jacket. Meant for Descent. 8 pockets, really tall fleeced lined collar. nice powder skirt. Zip off hood. Great stretch to the material. Waterproof, Breathable,pit zips. Very pleased with this piece
This Jacket is really nice. Great pockets. very light,warm and cozy.The main zipper is great and has nice little zipper garage at the top when fully zipped. Great insulation piece to be worn under a shell in cold conditions. The only flaw I see so far is the cuffs are a too loose for me. I will deal with it and am looking foward to using this on really cold ski days and a warm jacket for bumming around town.
I really like the concept of the c-change material on this jacket. Great pockets,really nice velcro on the cuffs.The body-mapped fleece on the inside of the jacket is a really nice feature for winter activities.This jacket could be used all seasons but,more ideal for cold weather.It also has a nice strectch to it in the rite places. What I did not like was the collar height is a little too short. For a Mountaineering storm shell I need more face coverage when its really blowing outside.Otherwise a very good and almost perfect Jacket.
I love how these skins perform with the Manaslu Ski. The rubber tip makes it very easy to put on and take off. The glide and grip very well. 2nd year with these skins and my favorite so far.
This is my 2nd year with these skis and I have been very pleased. I have the Dynafit TLT vertical FT Z12 binding and the Manaslu Speedkins. The set is ultra light and the pre cut skins are awesome. This is a great backcountry touring setup. The skis perform great in the powder and steeps. Highly recommend this set up for ski Mountaineering and touring.
After shopping around for a backcountry bib I bought these. What sold me was how soft the material is for a gore tex pro shell. I have done some hiking and ski touring in these and they have been perfect. Anything in the north face summit series to me is still top notch.
