Size Purchased: Large

This jacket is really disappointing and was returned. Its fit is baggy and loose atypical of the original Arc'teryx. This could be somewhat excusable if there was a waist drawcord; there is not. The arm sleeves were surprisingly short (like North Face fits). I have a +0 ape index at 5'10'' and the sleeves on the large were borderline short. The hard shell coating looks and feels cheap. Worse the coating makes the jacket a poor mid layer hurting how it breathes and making it noisy. To add insult to injury the fleece lining is cheap. It has no quilting or weave so will pill when you wash it. I guess there is a reason its on sale.

Screen Malfunction
2 5

I got the watch in neon green and it looked awesome though its not the most comfortable (somewhat impedes wrist motion). It was waterproof when I took it surfing which is not the case with all watches. I would have been stoked on the watch but after 6 months the screen became permanently mixed between telling the time and giving the tide information making it not much use.

I got an alu light about 9 months ago. I figured it would use less battery and be easy to read after looking at both light and dark models. I also figured the aluminum casing would make the watch virtually indestructible. Battery life seemed reasonable had to put in new batteries after about 9 months. I think sunrise sunset on a watch might be the most useful mountaineering planning item ever. The aluminum casing though is no good. I babied the watch but after about 6 months the buttons began corroding and the back began to turn black, reading the post apparently other people have had the same problem which is no good for a $500 time piece and it gets worse pretty fast.

The shoes edge well and the sole is thick enough to last a while but... the heel of these shoes just does not cut it. The heel is baggy and I say this as a person with generally wide feet. The way the sole wraps up in the back also creates a wierd loose spot. I have a friend who swears by Anasazi and kept claiming the heel brakes in but its been a solid 100 routes now and no dice. Bottom line, if you try a few sizes of the shoe and the heel never seems quite right its not going to get better with time.
