I just got my ArcTeryx Alibi pants in the mail - speedy delivery as usual, thank you! I am almost always an 8. I am 5'7" and 150 lbs, a very typical 8. So I got an 8 and they are SO tight! The fabric is not stretchy at all, either. I cannot imagine ever climbing in these, with no give in the fabric.
Weird sizing. No give in the fabric. A miss for ArcTeryx. I'll be returning them.

This is my second Chicago winter with this jacket and I love it. It is super warm even on those sub zero days. I do a little bit of ice climbing and the helmet-compatible hood is great on those occasions but for regular wear the hood is really huge and looks pretty dorky. No one cares what you look like when the wind chill is -40, though. The pockets are lovely and warm, and with the fleece-lined collar I never need a scarf- so cozy.
OR is a great company, they helped me out when I accidentally ripped the jacket open on some crampons (feathers everywhere!!!). I tried to patch it with the patch they sent but when that didn't work they replaced the Jacket. Very friendly, very helpful! I'll be wearing this jacket for years and years!
