Julia Nell's Bio

Hey ! I’m mainly a surfer and skier. I like to get around by bike skateboard and need my daily run. Every day I exercise as I have a need for speed and adrenaline. I tuck in some meditation and yoga, but that’s limited.

If you're looking for a jacket that has it all, this is it. It is lightweight, considering that it is a 750 fill goose down jacket with a goretex shell sitting on top of it. I dont like layering up too much, so that is why this jacket works for me. The insulated hood & high collar are essential for the bitter cold days that require you to trap in the heat from your head and protect your face. It breaths quite well and the pit zips are crucial for when it wams up. I'm very satisfied with the pockets and how well they serve the tasks they were designed to complete. The removable powder skirt is a plus, I'm not a fan of having extra material around when it conditions don't call for it.

The only issue that you will have with the jacket is the sizing. It fits tighter than what Arcteryx claims is a

Surfed Rockaway on the first true fall day. 60 F out 70s in water. Very windy, i stayed very warm. Even on the sand waiting for my buddy to get out of the water for 15 minutes I was not chilly. The sun was even setting. Issue I had with collar was the extra maroon bit. Kept having to stretch the neck out with my hands while sitting on my board in water. Eventually I pulled it back forward over my head and tucked it into the wetsuit so this piece wouldn’t keep hitting my face. Water did collect inside and bubble but this may have been from all the collar play. Very easy to put on , a lil tough to take off. Smooth lines , good looking suit

When I received this item I thought I'd use it for nothing more than a night shirt. Turns out the length in the butt saved my ass when I fell. It dried quickly with all the wet red mud. Super soft material, not my color of choice. Didn't rip when snared.

I have a small frame so this bag's frame was a little too high for me. Coming up steep inclines proved dangerous as I'd have to lean out in order to see where I was going. Looking up was not an option, however that probably means better neck protection if I were to have fallen. This bag had ample room. I did not love the color nor the mesh on straps. I understand this is for wicking sweat however it snagged on most anything. Comfortable around the waist to wear not meant for a breasted woman on top with strap.

This coat is true to size. I love the soft fabrics used, especially the inner lining in the collar which can be flipped and zipped all the way up. I am a slender athletic woman and its shape is flattering. I don't especially love the choice in green color of interior however and would be concerned that the exterior tissue being so thin would lead to quick snares. The zipper is somewhat off and should have a wider trim so as not to pinch the fabrics Thumbs up for using friendly accesssed goose down. Very warm.
