I bought this to wear in late Spring and early Fall when it's rainy and the temp is in the 40s here in Boston. This coat is perfect for that. You can comfortably wear a lightweight sweater underneath. The cut is flattering and the green color is nicer in person than online. It would be great if the hood provided a bit more coverage in front, but it's fine. Just returned from a business trip to Seattle where the coat was perfect.

Nice shirt, can't complain about quality. Runs a little smaller in size then other brands (I got a M). Nice light weight fabric. Just so damned expensive for Arc'terex stuff. Even NorthFace is cheaper sometimes. But this is nice clothing.

Loved this coat! But it isn't cut for women with a bust. I am straight size 10 almost across the board regardless of the manufacturer, but I couldn't even zip up the medium. It was so narrow in the chest.

I was disappointed with a couple of things about this jacket. First, it is not fleece. The material is most like old-fashioned thermal long johns, with the waffle weave. It is thin and flimsy feeling. Yes, it is soft. And I imagine it is warmer than say a tee shirt of the same weight, but I was shopping for a warm fleece to use as an insulating layer. I did not actually try it outside, so maybe I would be pleasantly surprised. The second issue is with the "gusseted underarm" feature. I am a small person - 5'1" and 114#, 32C. I expect even an xs to often be too big. But this xs was very much too big. Sleeves were at least 5 inches past my hands, the jacket was very roomy. And the gussets! They had the effect of flapping around between my armpits and my chest. Really annoying and weird. There is no way I would be able to layer this under a coat without having to fold extra fabric in under my arms. If I were to wear just this jacket on a hike, I would not be able to carry a backpack comfortably because of the extra fabric where I would need to have the pack straps. Appearance-wise, it looked as though I had the jacket fitted with balloons under it, which I then deflated. On a tall, very busty, woman, this jacket would be very flattering. Or, if you find the Mountain Hardwear brand size small or xs to be way too confining, this could be a good alternate choice. If you are borderline between sizes, definitely try the smaller size first.

Delivery was quick. Received this jacket literally on the 3rd day from the day I placed the order. Got it this afternoon & immediately tried it on. This is my second Arc'teryx jacket. The older Sidewinder AR Gore-Tex shell I owned is cut loosely compared to this. At 5' 5" 180lbs avid gym goer & just wearing a button-down long sleeve shirt, the medium is a tailored fit to my semi-muscular body with a slight wiggle room. Same fit experience can be said for thin & medium sweaters (Size M). Sleeves are slightly long but it's tapered so it doesn't go passed my wrists nor does it feel it bunches up much. The drop back/waist hugs my hips. Material is very flexible & thinner than expected. Although the color is UPS brown down to the brand font color, I do like the chocolate brown color. My biggest gripe for such an expensive jacket is that the one that was sent to me showed signs of someone ordered & returned it (not the last one for the size I ordered). I would trade the bicep pocket for a more useful napoleon pocket. The length of the jacket felt like it's cut more for long torso guys.

These arc'teryx shirts have a very nice feel and are a little on the thinner side of cotton shirts. Like all arc'teryx they have a nice athletic cut without the loss of length, which I appreciate being on the taller side.

This coat is fantastic for windy downtown Chicago. I love the high collar as it helps the coat maintain warmth. It isn't a thick coat but it doesn't need to be. I bought a large to put a sweater underneath on an extra cold day. Great buy at a great price point.

The best flannel that money can buy. I have four of these shirts and wear them every day, all winter long. A generous cut in the chest and shoulders allows for it to be worn as a shirt or jacket (shacket). The shirt is well constructed, with cool, unique details (Arc.teryx has a knack for details). The other nice thing about this shirt - snaps - which allows for super hero tear off, when you get too hot...always a nice option.

Love these liner gloves. The flat knit merino is warm, and can be hand washed/dry flat with success. The only less than 5 star thing about them is that they pill.

I am surprised how thin the jacket is, but also so warm. The package arrived in a small Zappos box and I was not prepared for how thin the jacket is. However, I am wearing it and it is warm and comfortable.

I received this as a gift and must share the wealth of my discovery! This stretchy, ultra fine merino wool zip top is my new absolute favorite to throw on after work or to go out casually on weekends. In addition, it is a fabulous base layer when the temperature plummets. I am tall: 5'8.5" and 125 pounds, and the size large fits my shoulders and arm length perfectly. The body of the size large isn't baggy, but it isn't tight either. The length is surprisingly perfect for me. I tried a size medium to see if it would be a better fit, but the medium felt constricting to me. I am so comfortable in my large. If you want a body conscious fit I'd suggest that you go with your usual size. The blue and raspberry colors are absolutely gorgeous!

I almost love this coat. I love the length, the color and the fit. The fit is very feminine and flattering. Unlike the previous reviewer, I liked that the hood was not removable. But, there was too much bulk around the neck. My biggest problem with this coat is the zipper. It was very difficult to get the coat to zip. Also, the zipper ends and the coat flaps oddly below the zipper. The price tag is way too high for this coat. I also agree that it is probably a little thin for places with a real winter.

I wanted to like this coat, but many things prevented that. It did look nice but the L was snug. I am 5'3" and 160lbs. I carry more weight around my middle. It was very snug across my chest and stomach and it kind of bells out at the bottom. If I got the XL I think it would be too big, but I couldn't layer anything under this coat so I have already returned it. I wore a sweater and a t-shirt on a cold Chicago winter day and I was chilly. For $650 this coat should be PERFECT! It is not. I found the perfect coat. The Columbia Women's Alpine Escape. It is more than half the price and it has omni heat. I do wish that coat manufacturers would make petites more often. I end up looking like a snowman.

Well worth every penny. Warm, stylish, and fits perfectly. I'm 5'11", 180 lbs with an athletic build and size Large fits like it was tailored. This has become my go to jacket for everyday wear. Arcteryx is the best. You won't regret buying one. What are you waiting for?

GREAT BELT, SOMEWHAT HARD TO CINCH UP UNTIL YOU GET THE HANG OF IT. WIDE ENOUGH SO THAT YOUR PANTS DO NOT ROLL AROUND THE WAIST.

Stylish and the color is more navy then the blue/purpleish you see. Nice vest but thin and certainly not worth $$$. $$ is fine but this price just so it has the Arc-Teryx birdy, no thanks.

This Flex-Fit cap is comfortable from the moment I took it out from the unusually large box sent to my doorstep. I'm a size 7 in headwear so it isn't too tight, nor too loose. I have yet to test it in more extreme weather to see how it holds, such as in a more subtropical climate. The service rep to whom I spoke to stated that this was made in Canada but it is actually made in elsewhere.

This is an awesome jacket. When I got the box from Zappos I was worried about the weight, the box was like it did not have anything inside, when I opened it and grabbed the jacket it weighed almost nothing, but when I tried on, I could feel how warm I was getting. It is a very light jacket that does not need much layering. I am a tall guy 6', 200 pounds, and my chest is 47'' and I got a large size that fits me perfectly.

This is great coat and worth the price. I think it has high quality construction. Nice styling so it looks great and feels awesome. It's lined, has a 2 way zip and extra fabric at cuffs and neck to keep out drafts. Shout out to bike commuters = this great coat for people who bike - the articulated arms give tons of forward motion freedom so when on the bike you don't feel any pulling on the sleeves. Great Job ARc'Terx!

I loved the way this coat looked so I ordered it. The cut and shape are super but I'm not a great fan of fabrics which are bound to another in place of an actual lining. The fabric was stiff. I also think it needs a 2 way zip as it's snug at the bottom as part of the style. It also needs lining in the sleeves so you can get your arms in better without your sleeves bunching up. I can't see this is a coat that should be priced this high - sorry - it has to go back.
