Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size

Haven't had it for long, but it's super comfy. Weight is perfect. Fit is great, collar seemed too tall but actually works well. Not pulling or compressing anywhere on the body, just what I was looking for. Great color (blue with red zip). Deep zip is nice. Bought it as a base layer for skiing but have been wearing around all the time.

Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
Fit: Runs small

I have tons of ArcTeryx stuff, way more than I should, and pretty much always wear medium. Small in a few cases, never large. This one is a really tight fit in medium. Not in a flattering way (granted that's more on me). To be fair, ArcTeryx tells you that it's a tight fit and I don't know how much it stretches over time, but it really is formfitting.

I am 5'6", wear 30 or 31 waist jeans, usually wear medium. I tried these at a store and went for the L, I wanted something just a bit looser fitting and these work perfectly. No bunching, no smell, great for skiing and handle a wider range of temperatures with just a shell pant than I expected. Get 'em.

I got this one as a replacement for a Silo 30 that I had a lot of ski days on and had for a few years. Loved that pack but the coating inside peeled and arcteryx replaced free of charge. Just got back from ten days using it for resort skiing and travel. It can take a lot more in that you'd think and carries the weight and bulk well. Pockets are great for organizing when traveling, silo was always a little too uncomfortably minimalistic for that. Hardly felt it when skiing, no bouncing around/fatigue/etc. Side pocket you can open without taking the pack off is great for a thermos. It's a ridiculous and nice comfort to have some hot tea on the lift :-). Avi gear fits in nicely if a bit tight for my shovel. It's not as uncompromisingly minimal as the silos were and the materials feel more conventional and not as 'industrial' somehow but it's a better overall pack.

I took this jacket instead of fleece on a three week hiking trip to Patagonia, and it worked great. It's much lighter, warmer, and more packable than fleece. The only bad is that it shed down for the first week and a half so whatever was under and over it got its fare share of feathers. I think that it might be because I was stuffing it into the stuff sack and keeping it in my pack between wearings. Anyway, now the shedding seems to have stopped so that's not an issue anymore. Bottom line -- it's warm and incredibly light and packable. This is my new favorite layering piece.

There aren't a lot of choices for a camera ski pack -- Dakine Sequence and Burton Zoom are it, and they are very similar. Sequence is a nice pack. Comfortable harness, room for two bodies, back access, removable camera block. Looks like it will last longer than the Zoom. In the end, I went with the Zoom because it's a little slimmer and a bit nicer inside. But, I would have been happy with the Sequence, too.
