Perhaps no brand understands how to balance technical excellence with understated style like Arc'teryx, and the Narin Women's Insulated Jacket is proof. With square quilting and a sleek, athletic fit, the Narin looks great on city avenues and mountain-town main streets, but it's what doesn't meet the eye that really makes it stand out amongst the crowd. Inside, it's packed full of 750-fill down insulation, which is remarkably light, compressible, and warm in relation to its weight. Down is also highly breathable, so you don't sweat if you end up on a hike or get surprised by some afternoon sun.
On the outside, the Narin's smooth, silky polyester fabric supplies a subtly stylish sheen, and the DWR finish sheds water so you don't find yourself soaked and shivering after a sudden shower or stroll through a soggy snowstorm. When you duck your chin into the high collar, the soft chin guard will prevent irritation, while the internal wind flap prevents drafts from slipping in through the zipper and sapping your warmth. Arc'teryx finished the Narin with articulated sleeves for easy, unrestricted movement and included two hand pockets with hidden zippers to help you warm up your fingers and keep your lip balm close.

Side Panels on the Narin
There are Side Panels on the Narin. I do not think any photo does this jacket justice.
It is Gorgeous! The Quartz color is very deep, rich and warm.
