3 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 11"
Weight: 200 lbs
Size Purchased: XL

I own tons of Arc'teryx gear and would rate every item purchased in the past at 5 stars. This jacket, however, is a different story. It's warm as he'll, and fits like a glove, but after 4 days on a repelling tower, it's looking pretty shabby. I found a hole in the left pocket on the third day, not sure how it happened, but the fabric seems very delicate. Also, I am constantly finding the insulation penetrating the fabric and needing to be worked back in.

The jacket is super light. It packs down as advertised, and it is extremely toasty, but the fabric used seems much more fragile than anything I've ever seen put out by Arc'teryx. Sad, because for the price, I would have expected it to hold up better.
