    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: Runs small

    If you ask my wife, she would say I probably spent a little too much time researching softshells. With so many excellent options, it is tough to choose! Basically, I was looking for the following criteria in this order:

    1) TOUGHNESS: This jacket is tough! It is as durable as any softshell I have ever come across, and that is exactly what I wanted. I have no doubts that his jacket will withstand a lot of abuse and last for many years. The fabric is very different from most other softshell fabrics. Since most people are probably familiar with the all too popular NorthFace Bionic, in comparison, the Epsilon LT is thinner and just a little stiffer. It is built with a two-way stretch, so the jacket moves with you.

    2) FLEECE BACKER: The fleece backer is a micro-backer in every sense. I think calling this a "fleece backed softshell" is almost a bit of a stretch. It is basically a shell jacket with a TINY bit of fleece fuzz. Personally, I would like it if the fleece was doubled (or even tripled) for just a bit for warmth and comfort, and this is the reason for the four star rating. I think the intent of the fleece backer on this jacket is only to wick moisture away from your skin, because it provides absolutely no insulation whatsoever. It does provide comfort for when the jacket is being worn with only a T-shirt.

    FIT: As others have stated, the jacket is slim fitting. I am short and wide (5'7" - 190lbs) and I purchased a Large. The sleeves are long, but they always are for me. I have given up on that one. The rest of the jacket fits great. I am able to fit a lightweight fleece under it, but not much more. It is a true athletic fit.

    Overall, this is a great jacket! For me, it will be perfect for everyday wear in spring and fall. I wore it today in a thunderstorm and it shrugged off the water with no problem. In winter, this jacket will be a great outer layer during high output activities. However, I wouldn't plan on wearing it during those brutally cold or windy days.

    Versatile softshell

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: Large

    Very hard-wearing softshell that scrubs up well in and out of the bush. It's mainly a transitional season jacket, but if you run hot like I do, it suffices for the majority of cold Melbourne mornings. More importantly, it's a jacket that never has you feeling too stuffy or cold. It does enough to keep you comfortable in outdoor weather.
    The hood is well proportioned and doesn't balloon out like those on tech shells that are designed to take in helmets.
    Repels more water than one would give a softshell credit for, but in downright deluges, I layer up with an Alpha LT.

    Others have mentioned the smallish sizing. I can elabborate on that by adding if you find the Medium Gamma MX too small and the Large Gamma MX too large, the Epsilon in Large will fit you fine, as was in my case.
    Heartily recommended, so much so Im looking at getting the non-hooded version as well.

    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Small

    I love this jacket. For a 'reasonably' priced ArcTeryx jacket, this delivers all the performance you expect from the company. It has the athletic fit which has made Arc my go to option for jackets, and without all the unnecessary 'features' you find in other jackets.It breaths well, and sheds a surprising amount of rain for a softshell.

    Stylish and functional

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Let's be honest. I bought this jacket more for its looks than I did for its soft shell applications because man does it look good! That being said, it does shield you from cooler temperatures and light rain. I don't wear this on colder days because it isn't very thick and doesn't provide much insulation but that is why I usually bring another layer just in case. Overall, this is a very basic jacket and does the job well of keeping light rain/snow off of you while you stay warm.

    Runs a little small

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: Runs small

    I'm 6'2 and 210 pounds. Got a large and it was to tight in the chest and torso. I'd say the jacket would be fine in temps down to 40 degrees, but no colder.

    Burley jacket,

    I have used this jacket for bc skiing, ice/rock/alpine climbing and everyday use. Ive been abusing it for about a year now and the thing still looks brand new. Ive used it with a thermal and shell in sub zero temps and not a single complaint, this jacket puts out. The only issue I would be cautious of when purchasing online is it seems to run slightly small. Im 5'10" 170, i bought the medium and fits well, just snug

    Favorite Lightweight Softshell

      This jacket is simple, clean, and functional without a lot of added bells and whistles. The face material of this jacket is smooth and sleek. Two large hand pockets provide ample room for daily necessities.

      This jacket doens't block out high winds, nor does it provide great warmth - becasue it isn't designed to do so. The Arc'teryx Epsilon LT is made to be a lightweight softshell that provides what I like to call "springtime" comfort. There is a micro-grid fleece on the backer of the jacket that will keep you warm on cool sunny spring days. If you are looking for a lightweight jacket that can be worn around town and also put to the test on spring hikes and touring days, look here.

      What are the differences in this and the epsilon ar jacket?

      hegaveitall, the Arc'teryx Epsilon LT features a new/updated face fabric with a high nylon content for great durability. The new face fabric also has a great, smooth hand that slides well underneath a shell when worn as a layering piece.

      Also, the LT has a higher CFM rating so it's more breathable than the AR.
