Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: Runs large

I bought this shell to replace my Norrona Narvik this year. There are a few features I wish arcteryx would have incorporated into this shell that i felt were missing.

Firstly, there are no wrist gaiters to pair with the powder skirt, which i thought was sorta weird.

Second, some spots could use a little bit of microfleece lining, not alot, but just enough to soften up some spots near the face.

Also, as other reviews have stated, it does run a bit short on the body, i catch a lot of drafts coming in if i'm not wearing a tucked in bottom layer.

The velcro on the sleeves of this jacket is top notch and doesn't budge or pack full of snow like a lot of jackets i've owned, and the hood is just the right size to fit over a helmet.

Overall, this is an awesome shell for inbound days. I wouldn't take it out touring due to the lack of pockets, but i look forward to a lot of fun in this shell!

I figured everyone was being silly and drying their shirts (why i thought they shrunk) but it turns out its the actual act of washing the shirts that shrinks them.

I'm 5'11" 180LBS, so i bought an xl to make sure it fit well (being organic and everything).

Well the first day I rocked it, the shirt fit and felt awesome, i washed it, air dried it, put it on, and now its up to the top of my pants...

either way, still a sick looking shirt.
