My fingers and toes are always cold skiing. I decided that maybe you do get what you pay for and took the plunge to order the most expensive pair of gloves I have ever owned. I took them out today for their first run. Overall, big improvement over what I had. My hands were definitely warmer...finger tips did get chilled after a couple of hours, but it was 5 degrees out so although they are awesome gloves, they aren't miracle workers. I did a ton of research and these are the top ones so I will keep them. They fit great and easy to still work fingers. I think I will be happy for several years with them.

Pros: Unbelievable quality, stitching and fabric. So comfortable and warm. Color rocks! Very classy. Cons: Disappointed with the cut/shape. Seems more for the short rounder apple shape woman. To big around the arms, making it more masculine. I still kept it only for the amazing quality, comfort, and color. As I was unable to find match quality and color in a better cut.

Good looking belt that feels strong & well made. The bright red stitching really stands out from the black giving it a fashionable look. The problem is that it's difficult to tighten. Takes 2 hands & extra effort.

I read the reviews and a couple comment on the fit and provide their height and weight but unfortunately do not say what size jacket they bought. I am 5'10", 170 lbs, 40" chest, 31" waist. I work out a bit but am not body builder big. I actually found the M to be too snug in the upper body since Arcteryx makes more fitted products. For layering purposes, I went with a L. This lightweight jacket does a pretty solid job of being a wind stopper and keeping out the cold. I do have some negative comments though. The zippers feel pretty low quality. In addition, because of the material, my pocket zippers get jammed - more frequently than I would like - when the material gets trapped in the zipper. When I zip up all the way, but do not wear the hood, the zipper does not "lock." In other words, my chin can force the zipper unintentionally down. However, when the hood it is up, it does an excellent job staying up and keeping my noggin' warm. All in all I would rate this jacket a 4.5.

My husband is very hard to please when it comes to belts! He was over the top overjoyed with this belt. The weight of it, the comfort of it. It didn't curl and he loved the styling. Definitely would recommend the belt.

This jacket is wonderfully warm and feels so light and comfortable on. My measurements are 35/26/36, with somewhat narrow hips and the Small fit best, save for one deal breaking flaw there is no drawcord for the bottom hem. The cut is too loose around the bottom hem and with no way to adjust it, cold air would blow right in and it would cause heat loss. The XS fit better around the bottom hem, but left little room for layers underneath. There's so much to love about the function and feel of this jacket, but the fit needs to be correct, otherwise you will lose heat.

Fits well but seems to run slightly large. Excellent construction and lightweight- very durable. Great outer layer for hiking, camping, etc.

The zipper got badly stuck, twice, in the lowest position, right before opening. First time, it finally unstuck after several days. Now it is permanently stuck and the zipper is ripping away from the coat, from me pulling so hard to open it. I can't justify this price for a coat that I have to step in and out of. Sending it back. (Plus, I sent it to the dry cleaner and none of the dirt or stains came out - don't know if that's the material or the dry cleaner's fault, but I've never had a problem before with my dry cleaner!)

Pros: The fabric: seems like it'll be great in the summer. The style: cute! Fit: The band is tight. I normally wear a size small or medium in other brands but I tried all the sizes and large fits best-- and it's still tighter than I'd prefer. As a result, it's a bit saggy because I shouldn't be wearing a large... but I'm using it for low-impact stuff like walking and I don't need a great deal of support so it'll suffice. -Durability: I've washed it twice so far and it messed up the straps (they're a bit snagged). I've also heard some scary tearing noises when putting it on. Overall: I wanted to LOVE this and it's so close to being lovable, but I'm afraid it's not going to hold up long enough to make up for the hefty price tag.

These gloves look great and are quite dextrous, and provide protection when touching cold things. However they are just not warm. Wind easily penetrates the neoprene material, and my hands were frozen even in moderately cold weather (20s F). I can only imagine those that find this glove acceptable have warm hands or are only using them at high activity levels.

These gloves are super comfy and seem to do a good job keeping the cold out (at least with a light breeze), the only thing I wish was they included a digital touch finger for the phone.

Thin fleece that is actually more of a baselayer. Not thick enough to wear over long underwear. Nice quality, just not was I was looking for -- not really a midlayer fleece as described. It's about the same warmth and thickness as a Patagonia Capilene 3.

For the huge amount of money, I was not impressed. Super thin jacket, like garbage bag thin, super slim-fit. I've read tons of great reviews, wanted the Gore-Tex Pro and ability to pack this jacket down small enough to easily fit in my backpack, but in the end, I don't feel it's worth even half the money. It's not like it's made in the USA.

I love these pants. They fit perfectly, they do not gape at the back like so many do. I have numerous pairs - they wear like iron - I have them countless times and they still look new. I wear a size 2 in these pants, and a size 4 in jeans.

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.

Reviewer: Kristi from United States
Overall: Rated:2 stars! Comfort: Rated:2 stars! Style: Rated:2 stars!

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.
