jam114388908wrote a review of Arc'teryx Thorium AR Hooded Down Jacket - Men's on December 11, 2019
Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Fit: Runs small
The Thorium was a replacement to a Patagonia Down Sweater jacket because the Patagonia was huge in the torso. The Thorium is an excellent jacket and felt like it would be super warm. The exterior material feels more durable than most down jackets, the pockets were comfortable, and the overall finish was great. I had a problem with the fit. The area around the shoulder going into the upper arm was just too tight. It felt like I was being grabbed in the armpit, and was too restrictive. The torso fit well; much better than the Patagonia, but the cut of this coat was not made for people spending much time in the gym. I gave the jacket 5 stars because I'm reviewing the jacket itself which is definitely excellent, but the cut didn't work for me. If you are an outdoors person that isn't going to the gym to develop the upper body, this is probably a perfect coat. I ended up with the Fjallraven Keb Touring Down which fits my body type much better.
