Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

this is THE most amazing jacket that i had to buy it in another color.

i just returned from a bike tour on the coast of oregon and northern CA which was very chilly for september. i rode with this jacket on, slept in it (we camped), and was glad to have it around town always looking very stylish, especially for a technical jacket.

it packed down small and light when not in use, and saved me in the chilly mornings/evenings and riding through the coastal fog.

i am a true medium, top size 8, and bought a medium in this jacket and it fits perfectly. if i were going to wear much bulk under the jacket, i would size up, but with a thin baselayer or two, a medium works great for me.

i am wondering if i will ever buy a jacket from a brand other than arcteryx at this point.

I ordered the vest because the Atom jacket is unbelievable. The vest is the same sleek appearance and fantastic feel: warm and insulating without any puffiness, and allows great freedom of movement. I ordered the Bondi Blue which is a nice color without being too strong. I am practically always a size medium, and the medium was perfect for me.

this is a light baselayer with a little bit of structure in the design, which i love. i have never had a baselayer top look so stylish.

i ordered a medium which was snug and fitted, so i will keep that for certain outfits, and i also ordered a large, to wear for golf when i do not want my top hugging my form. i am practically always a medium size top, or top size 8.

it is a rather warm baselayer, so it's too much clothing for a hot summer day, but is fine on cooler days. here in southern CA, i am big on wearing long sleeves to protect from the sun, so these will be a 3-season staple for me.

the colors are fantastic, nice radiant color.
