I'm sick and tired of these "flannel" shirts coming out that are soft cotton and have no utility other than to look hipster. This flannel is soft and thick fabric that will actually keep you warm. It fits classic, maybe a bit on the larger side, but I welcome that fit because it's tight on the shoulders and flows down for a nice casual fit.

I picked up this jacket recently in preparation of an upcoming ski trip to use as an insulating layer and it was fantastic. Not only was it great on the slopes, but I used it as a stand-alone jacket to head out to dinner/take walks/etc. The inside pocket is a nice touch, though I do wish there was some storage for larger items (i.e. thin liner fabric as a pocket to hold a pair of gloves, etc). The fit is pretty standard, not too tight, not too athletic.

I've tried to avoid a helmet for years and finally gave in. I bought this helmet two years ago, outfitted it with the drop-in speakers, and fell in love. It's warm and the speaker setup with the Skull Candy drop-ins makes skiing even more fun. The vents are great on those extra warm days, and the chin-strap padding is a nice feature. I also bought Smith goggles, and the integration and fit between the two rocks!

In typical Arc'teryk fashion, the quality of this jacket is phenomenal. It's the little things that make this jacket so incredible. The hood doesn't have a way to hide it away, but the design of the fabric hold the hood down and back in the perfect location. The high-mounted front pockets are huge and give plenty of room for a front pack.

Many people ask about the insulation -- it's barely a fuzz. I wouldn't call it insulation in any way -- it's a typical hard shell. The only thing it's good for it being soft against your skin if you're in a t-shirt.

This is a great multi-use jacket, from the ski slopes to hiking. It's my new go to ski jacket and is the highest quality jacket I've owned in a long time.

My only complaint would be no mesh on the pit zippers, but a good inner layer should protect against small amounts of snow.
