I gave it as a gift but this is what he reported back to me,
I love this jacket, beacuse it delivers exactly what it promises to deliver. I would like to use this review to explain this, and to address two big issues I have with a lot of these seemingly confused reviews going around. Nothing about this jacket should surprise anyone. Here's why:
First: It's a Paclite jacket. Obviously it's not as durable and/or breathable as Pro or Active. But it's cheaper and its lighter, and it delivers exactly the same wind- and rain protection. If anyone says a Pro is more rainproof, they're wrong. Pro is more durable (construction mainly) and breathable, and Active is more breathable and (perhaps) slightly more durable (construction). However, this jacket does sport a 40 denier face fabric (although not the super-tough N40p-x, like the Alpha FL), and as such, it is a pretty burly Paclite jacket. For the same reason, it's not the lightest on the market. But for a 40 denier face fabric jacket, it probably is.
Second: It might not have pit zips, and it only has one pocket, but this should be very clear just by looking at it. If you know you want pit zips or more pockets, buy a jacket, that has those features. Just know that it will be heavier, and it will cost more. Because, you know, pit zips and pockets weigh more than just fabric, and putting them in takes time and therefore costs money. Complaining that a jacket, you bought, has no pit zips, is like bying a sportscar and complain that you can't fit your entire family in the backseat. Obviously, the car is not therefore flawed, you purchased the wrong car.
Like I said, I love this jacket. It is easily light enough to earn its place in my pack on every outdoor occasion, and I have no worries pulling it on for rough use. If you want a lighter jacket, look elsewhere, but be prepared for something like 10-15 denier and much less durability. If you want more versatility (read: durability and breathability), go for the Alpha FL, which weighs only 20 grams more. It does cost 50% more, but I think it's a bargain. I don't feel like I need more durability, but I also don't want a lot less, so for me, this is a great choice. I'm sure I would love the FL too.
And for the five stars: It's quite simply beautifully made, for what it is, and Arc'teryx are very up-front about what it is. There should be no surprises with this one, only expected satisfaction.
Why have I never owned a pair of these before? Fit well, Shoulder straps could use another inch but other than that, YOU BUY NOW!
Got them as a gift for a neighbor who was having issues with her gloves. Loves them and keeps her hands warm and dry, even after a full day of digging the snow out of her snowblower
Got it as a gift for my brother. He uses it to carry spare clothes and saws it does it well with his computer and books.
Ron Swanson here, allowed me to sip thru the lid. I'd call that a good product.

When hot item is placed in vessel, it stays hot.
When cold item is placed in vessel, it stays cold.
Gave them as a gift but the return from the friend is that the downhill use of these boots is above and beyond what the TLT5's he was in. Super impressed on the uphill as well.
Weighs as much as a Unicorn Burp, next to nothing.
Descendents Colab Helmet and googles
Chainsaw pop champs got a helmet!
Floats in pow like a butterfly, crushes big lines like a mega bee. Perfect everyday ripper for Alta/bird, Jackson or squaw type skiing
Holds all the gear you need for those short sidecountry trips, and if you are lucky enough heli laps. Keeps all the items close to your body and not extra slap on going big.
5/7 would recommend
Comfortable Light and jut enough style to rock on and off the hill.
They did keep the white stuff out of my eyes, when I was in full party
Bought it for a wedding gift, you know to help the newlyweds consummate the reltionshsip, and since they like the woods figured it would be a great gift.
Could use more pictures...
To be honest I grabbed them because of the Descendents colab, still a huge frame with a bomber lens.
Plus it came in a rad bad tin with a coffee scented airfreshner!
Milo would approve
