Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: Runs large

My size 6'2'' and 187 lb. Cool jacket, but the sizing is a little off. I first tried on the large, but the large was baggy in the stomach area and then the medium and it fit well, the medium just gives me enough room to layer with a down piece. Without the sizing issue the jacket is nicely constructed and the look is smooth.

Nice down and comfortable too. If someone out there is a little perplexed on sizing here is what worked for me. I'm 6'2'' and 187 lb. I first tried a on a large, but the fit was way to big baggy for my liking, especially if you're planning on using this down as a mid- layering piece every once in awhile. So the medium was the winner when it came to sizing, but it just fits! if it was an inch shorter in the sleeves I personally wouldn't be able to wear this brand.
Afterthought - the hoody version is the exact same in sizing, too.

I used the Verdicts for two seasons and put them through deep powder, ice, crust,and new england chowder. First, I would say don't buy these unless you just ski powder or like speeding down a mountain with little turning. Maybe it was just me, but just couldn't maneuver these skis in tight trees the way I would've like to. On the other hand, they survived two seasons with little wear and they do have a nice construction to them.

Fit: True to size

This jacket really worked great for my cross country ski trip, the range of motion was perfect, and blocking the cold elements was great. Most of the time I didn't even notice I was wearing the jacket, due to the fact it makes little to no noise while moving. The temperature during the trip was around -20 and this jacket blocked out the wind and shed the snow, too. I'm 6'2'' and 180lb. the large was a perfect choice

This review is more about sizing on this jacket. First, most people stated that the Theta AR runs a bit larger than most Arc'teryx textiles. My size is 6'2, weight is 180lbs and I'm a large in every Arc'teryx jacket style. I went with the large and you might want to consider this also. Now, If you're wanting to use the jacket more for street wear then down size to a medium. However, with a size large you are able to layer anything under this jacket, if you Ice climb or nordic ski in extremely cold conditions you'll understand my case then.

I really enjoyed this backpack. I've used a number of different brands in my time, but this pack stands out from the rest. First, it's comfortable to have on your back for hours on end. Second, shape is perfect for multiple outdoor uses. Furthermore, In my opinion go with the 30 size instead of the 22 size, Because it's always nice to have extra cubic inches even on short climbing runs.
