Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Fit: True to size

I recently traveled to the Canadian Rockies and forgot my technical shell. I didn't want to buy another; the forecast for the Columbia Icefields called for steady rain. So, I bought this jacket because my softshell was old. My only experience with soft shells was with Mountain Hardwear, with fully taped seams, windproof and almost fully waterproof. I expected this jacket to be a true technical softshell based on brand and price. Boy! Was I stupid! This is an overpriced fleece jacket at best. Perfect for early fall walking down the suburban streets of some ultra rich town to show off. I have had warmer, windproof and more water resistant jackets for half the price. Learn from my mistake. Do your research and compare features. Arcterex should be ashamed of the engineering and construction of this jacket at a $300 price tag.
