I love this jacket! Instantly a favorite staple in my closet. It's light. It's breathable. It's protecting. It's windproof. It's NOT water resistant, if large droplets in a rainstorm hit this jacket, they'll seep through. The hoodie is fantastic! The velcro wrist adjustments are friggin fantastic, I love them, they keep all the warm air in, cold air out, all the wind out! The storage feature is phenomenal! But it doesn't have side pockets, which is strange to me. The jacket wouldn't have had that much-added bulk with side pockets, at least one side pocket. It's the only thing I would change. Otherwise, it's so light and breathable, easily packable jacket that I am in love with it. I take it on flights, hikes, runs, work, anywhere and everywhere I can. It washes nicely. I wash it on gentle and air dry it, comes out good as new. I'll likely order one in another color because its just that good. I am 5'5', 125, slightly curvy, dimensions are 34D-27-29, and Small fits with some wiggle room. I usually wear a sports bra and t-shirt underneath, but I could probably layer a light sweater underneath as well.

It has no side pockets for your hands... but I'm keeping it anyway! Its great for being active in a light rain. It might not be great for standing at the soccer game in the rain because your hands are going to get wet for sure.

I purchased this jacket specifically for a long, windy climb up the Grand Teton. I had attempted the climb once without a great wind breaker and paid the consequences. This jacket worked perfectly this time around. I felt warm and comfortable during the windy parts of the climb. As the sun came out and the wind died down, I did need to shed this layer quickly as it instantly built up heat, but that was expected and easy enough since the jacket is so lightweight. It packed into my climbing bag in a snap. Overall, the fit of the jacket is pretty good, and fairly flattering, although it did seem a little short on me.

Great Fall/Winter Running Jacket

This jacket is awesome! It's super light and compacts into its pocket so it's easy to take with if you're unsure about the weather. It's not 100% waterproof but if you were stuck in a light storm or snow shower you'd be fine. I really like the fit. It's not too long at the waist and it's a nice cut for women.

I bought this to replace a Patagonia Houdini jacket that I lost, and although I did like the Houdini, I think this jacket is even better. It fits a little narrower than the Houdini--it's true to most Arc'Teryx sizing. Two things that are markedly better about the Squamish jacket: the cuffs have a bit of elastic so they stay up when I push them up, and the hood has a better trim--it fits better around my head and it doesn't fly up in my face when I'm riding my bike and look over my shoulder (sounds weird, I know, but it was a constant with the Houdini). I use this jacket primarily for biking to/from work, sometimes for evening trail runs, and it's perfect for that. I agree with others that it's not a substitute for a rain jacket, but I was actually pleasantly surprised at how much water it sheds before it gets saturated. The jacket stuffs into the chest pocket, approximately 4"x6". Not a feature I use very often, but still nice.

I was expecting a thicker softshell, and in reality this is an ULTRALIGHT wind and emergency layer. VERY similar to the Patagonia Houdini. It didn't work for my original purpose, but I decided to keep it because the fit is perfect for me, and it's still an awesome, and very useful jacket to have. It may shed a few random drops of water, but definitely NOT meant to be a rain jacket. Best as a wind layer. It packs down INCREDIBLY small. I shoved it into a small purse the other day heading into town at night so I could wear it home. The fit is your standard Arcteryx fit. It is loose enough to allow a layer or two underneath.

Recently wore this jacket quite a bit for climbing . It is a terrible layer for when rain (or anything heavier than a drizzle) is definite. Despite the coating and finish, this jacket doesn't really keep me that dry. And when it's a little misty and windy out, it is a bummer that there aren't any pockets to keep your hands warm and dry in. Also, if you happen to get caught in a major downpour in this jacket, you will get soaked. However, this thing does dry out fast, and for windy days it's an awesome layer. I love how small packs down and how light it is. I decided last minute to take this baby with me on El Cap and was so happy I did -- perfect active wind layer to have clipped to your harness.

My favorite go-to lightweight jacket!

Familiarity:

Fit:
True to size

Sizing reference: (Female) 5' 4.75", 110 pounds, ~34A. USE: I purchased this jacket to use for running & hiking in light rain & wind in the spring/summer. In reality, I wear this jacket rain or shine. Note: this is NOT waterproof & will not keep you dry in a downpour. FIT: I have a size SMALL. I don't like my jackets very tight, and I like to keep in mind I might want a couple thin layers underneath any jacket I have to get the most use out of them. I have broad shoulders, a fairly small cup size, and about a 34" bust, & the chest fits perfectly--not too tight, not too loose. I have a +1 ape index & the cuffs fit just right at my wrists, & they don't slide around. The jacket fits comfortably around your face when fully zipped (see pic) & neither constrains your neck nor chafes your chin. PROS: It's incredibly lightweight & perfectly stretchy, and if you need a warm-weather emergency jacket on a run, walk, hike, climb, etc., stop here! When I don't need it, I can easily & quickly tie it around my waist. The single cinch cord at the bottom of the jacket as well as on the hood are effortless to use, and the light but firm functional brim makes this my go-to jacket on a cloudy day when I don't want to carry around my crunchy Gore-Tex. The chest pocket is great for carrying my phone & tiny wallet. One more thing: the silver logo is reflective! (see pic). Arc'teryx thinks of it all, which, for me, makes it worth the investment. CONS: Use the velcro closures carefully on this jacket--they may scratch your skin. When I first got this jacket, I had a few 8-inch bright red scratches on my body from the sharpness of the edge on the closure. The edges have since softened a bit with use. Finally, the lack of side pockets drives some people mad. I am not one of those people, & on a run, I find that I simply don't need side pockets; but be aware there aren't any on this model. Also check out the Arc'teryx "Cita" for slightly more reflectivity & a different color selection.
