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

My wife has some longer TNF and a nice enough Marmot light down jacket, but this Arc'Teryx one pretty much retired them all. The quality and fit you would expect from Arc'Teryx, nothing you don't need. She loves the tapered cut and a bit of extra length in back and in the arms. It is definitely worth the extra money to get one of these.

Such a great and flexible pack. It can carry heavy loads comfortable but I really like that fact that once one has arrived you can easily remove remove the hip belt, lid and even internal frame to get a very light pack for quick speed trips. Highly compressible so 46 l is never too big. Only thing missing is some external pockets for e.g. water bottle.

Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

I bought this one for my mother and she absolutely adores it. Hence, I'm not saying that it is an old person type of jacket, rather that has the quality and appeal that can be enjoyed by anyone. I have the non-hooded version myself and it is my go-to piece.

I'm amazed how light this jacket is and how well it packs down to almost nothing, so much I'll just put it in my laptop messenger bags when I travel for just-in-case situations. It is certainly not as burly as 3-layer Goretex Pro Shell but the use-cases are just different, and personally I find most of the latest gen Goretex PS jackets way to stiff and noisy. The M10 is great for my intended uses: hiking, biking, some running, skiing (during certain conditions). It is a study in minimalism.

Only gripe: a little flap to stove down the hood would have been nice. I'm sure some people would want more pockets, I'm OK with it.

Watch out though - that "mango" color is STRONG, more like signal orange IMO.

This pack offers a tremendous value. It is as close to bombproof as you'll need in most cases, but has the great option that you can easily remove the hip-belt, framesheet and lid and you'll something much lighter. Good wrap-around compression straps as well.

My only complaint is one of personal preference; I'd love to add:
- external side pockets
- external shovel/probe pockets
- panel loading functionality

At 20% off right now, it is a no brainer. If you are willing to spend more money, I'd go with a Mystery Ranch pack.
