But I finally got a good deal on arcteryx alpha SL ; perfect for rainy commutes ...
How do they fit ?
I'm looking for something to wear over my jeans for rainy comutes.
are they loose enough or shall go up one size ? Thanks.
Pertex is top notch quality.
Valandré use to make their sleeping bags with.
You can learn more on pertex.com.
If pertex was your only concern about this jacket, go, it's probably the best fabric you can have for a down jacket...
Btw, I had the opportunity to try this jacket on, and I must say it's realy nice.
I don't find the neck to be so tight, and what I like a lot vs. the Patagonia, is that the shoulders are broad, but the waist is slimmer ; the fit is more "athletic". I always found the Patagonia fit a bit too "baggie" in the waist area, and if I sized down, the shoulders were too tight.
So, if you're between M and L at Patagonia, this jacket could perfectly fit on you. Warmth wise, I think theyr're both top quality.
