Dominique R.wrote a review of Arc'teryx Fission SV Jacket - Women's on January 7, 2014
Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Fit: Runs large
I was on the fence getting this jacket versus canada goose parka the biggest thing with the canada goose was that...itt has the warmth but the weight that it entails so i finally bought this jacket and hoped it would be warm enough on this frigid temps.
Earlier today i wore a fleece denali plus down 850 count mountain hardwear ghost whisperer and i was cold but not frigid cold thought that's normal bec its -9 and feels like -36F per forecast first time in decades in my area which im new anyway . I received later on the day my arcteryx sv fission and went out again and felt cold on my feet, legs, and hands but not my body without a midlayer!!! maybe bec it blocks the -36 windchill...whatever it is ...its so lightweight..nice fit and lighweight and most important super warm. i weight 130lbs and got a medium and still has lots of space.
i couldnt be happier with this jacket and just on time for the polar vortex temp.
