Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size

I bought this jacket for my girlfriend on S+C. On a day when it was snowing and just under freezing the jacket became soaking wet. The gore pro membrane did what it was supposed to and no water got through the shell however, the water did not bead off either. Arc'teryx needs to work on their DWR finnish as I have heard this is a common problem with their products. In comparison I used a Trew gear soft shell and skied with her all day and my jacket was bone dry at the end of the day while hers was soaking wet.

So this is an update from my original review where I took one star off for the small waist belt buckle. I thought I wouldn't be able to operate with mitts on...turns out I was wrong. I have toured several days with this backpack on Mt. Washington (NH) and it works great. Well done Osprey.

Yeah you have to gate check it but so what? It still qualifies as a carry-on (as in you don't have to check it before security) and your bag is sure to make the connection. I don't understand all these people giving this bag a poor rating because it has to be gate checked...the dimensions are listed on the left side of your screen people, use a tape measure, figure it out. This bag is great, makes great use of space and is very durable. I've owned a bag which you didn't have to gate check and it was pain to fit everything in there and I usually had to leave stuff behind. A+ bag...my only gripe is that I spent 130 bucks on it and now its on sale for 98!!!
