Once again Arcteryx sets the standard for simply the world's best waterproof outdoor gear.

The Beta LT is totally waterproof, breathes well, is light and packable and fits beautifully.

Outstanding quality, features and attention to detail!

Plus the Bushwack colour is gorgeous!

I couldn't be happier!

Superb quality, super warm and great fit.

You don't look like the Michelin Man in this jacket as it's really nicely shaped!

I'm 5'7" with measurements 39 bust, 32 waist and 37 hips and a medium fits well with room for a couple of light layers underneath.

If I wanted to wear heavier layers underneath then I'd size up to a large.

Overall fantastic jacket!!

Arcteryx does it again!

Slim fitting, lightweight, super smooth and comfortable and fast drying material - love them!

The only issue is that if you have wide hips you might find them hard to get on as they have a slip on waist band, so I'd recommend these as best for people with narrow hips.

I saw all of the good reviews on these socks so bought three pairs.

When I went to try them on I noticed that in all three pairs the insides were absolutely COVERED in long loose threads and loops of thread which catch your toes as you're putting on the socks.

When the thread in a loop snaps it creates a big run on the outside of the sock.

I have lots of high quality socks like PHD and Injinji and expected these Darn Toughs to be of similar quality, which they are not.

These are the worst socks I've ever had and I'm simply amazed that they made it out of the factory with such poor quality.

I contacted Darn Tough and they just told me to go back to the retailer.

Needless to say, I won't ever buy Darn Tough socks again.

I just received my Arc'teryx Atom SL Hoody and it is BRILLIANT! Lightweight and trim-fitting but warm. I bought it in the green "Creekside" colour and love it! I'm 5'7" and 140lbs and wear a 36C bra. Medium fits perfectly with enough room for a light base layer underneath, but if I wanted to layer more under it then I'd need to size up to a large - especially to have enough room through the chest. It's nice and long in the sleeves for my longish arms. Wore it outside on a 10°C (50°F) day with a cool wind and only a singlet and shorts and it felt light as a feather yet warm and nicely wind resistant.
The material is wonderfully soft and stretchy and it's cut well so you get great freedom of movement through the arms. Dropped hem in the rear keeps your lower back and rear nicely covered. Hip length in front. Looks and feels GREAT!
