I love Arc'teryx products - the quality is normally beyond compare, and I love the fit and colors. I'm so disappointed in the zipper on this coat. It is a struggle to zip up, requiring multiple attempts. If I'm pulling out my rain coat it's probably because I want shelter quickly - I don't want to fumble with a zipper. Once zipped, the collar is uncomfortable at the chin - very stiff. Unfortunately I didn't explore these things until after I'd cut off the tags, but in preparing for a trip to Ireland I've been trying on the jacket to experiment with layering underneath. The zipper is so frustrating I will likely purchase another coat before my trip. I can't speak to its performance in wet weather since I haven't tested it. Like most Arc'teryx products, the coat is fitted, but I was able to purchase my usual size, XS, and can still layer underneath (Patagonia Better Sweater or down vest, for ex.). Such a bummer for the price.
