Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 9"
Weight: 135 lbs
Size Purchased: Medium

I am completely dedicated to Arcteryx tops and jackets (I haven't shopped alot of the pants). The sleeves are nice and long, the construction and materials are quality, and the products last forever. I am 5'9" and usually a size 8, and will wear M or L tops depending on the brand. I also wear both sizes of Arcteryx depending on the item. I bought a Medium in this jacket and it is perfect-sized with a little room to spare (not fitted, but slightly drapey), and extremely lightweight and warm. I would suggest sizing down if you are between sizes and want to wear this jacket really fitted. I am finding myself 'living' in this jacket during the So CA (coastal) winter. This is not your typical fleece jacket, it feels more like a fleeced thermal shirt.

this is THE most amazing jacket that i had to buy it in another color.

i just returned from a bike tour on the coast of oregon and northern CA which was very chilly for september. i rode with this jacket on, slept in it (we camped), and was glad to have it around town always looking very stylish, especially for a technical jacket.

it packed down small and light when not in use, and saved me in the chilly mornings/evenings and riding through the coastal fog.

i am a true medium, top size 8, and bought a medium in this jacket and it fits perfectly. if i were going to wear much bulk under the jacket, i would size up, but with a thin baselayer or two, a medium works great for me.

i am wondering if i will ever buy a jacket from a brand other than arcteryx at this point.

I ordered the vest because the Atom jacket is unbelievable. The vest is the same sleek appearance and fantastic feel: warm and insulating without any puffiness, and allows great freedom of movement. I ordered the Bondi Blue which is a nice color without being too strong. I am practically always a size medium, and the medium was perfect for me.

this is a light baselayer with a little bit of structure in the design, which i love. i have never had a baselayer top look so stylish.

i ordered a medium which was snug and fitted, so i will keep that for certain outfits, and i also ordered a large, to wear for golf when i do not want my top hugging my form. i am practically always a medium size top, or top size 8.

it is a rather warm baselayer, so it's too much clothing for a hot summer day, but is fine on cooler days. here in southern CA, i am big on wearing long sleeves to protect from the sun, so these will be a 3-season staple for me.

the colors are fantastic, nice radiant color.
