Thorium AR Hoody

rated 5 of 5 stars The Thorium AR does exactly what it intends to, which is keep you very very warm and comfortable for a low weight penalty. Buy this jacket if you want a near a perfect insulation layer for weather below -5*C (23 F) that packs small and feels like wearing a cloud. First things first, this jacket excels at its intended use. If it's cold but dry, it's great. If it's wet or the wind picks up you WILL need a shell over it (down + water = bad, it isn't incredibly wind resistant). It's designed to be worn… Full review

Fission SV Jacket

rated 5 of 5 stars The best jacket on the market today. Let's put it this way: The best jacket on the market today. Under various conditions, cold, wet, windy, this jacket does it all. Full review

Alpha SL Jacket

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Shocking durability. I am very disappointed with the durability of this jacket. After 6-7 years of very light use, the seams in the jacket around the waist, cuffs, and collar came apart and it appeared that the glue had failed. After sending it to Arc’teryx for assessment to Switzerland, at my own expense, I was advised that it had come to the end of its life and was beyond repair. The customer service department also advised that lightweight products were not as durable as heavier shell jackets. Full review

Acto FL Jacket

rated 5 of 5 stars Tough as a work-jacket, breathable as a fleece. So the hood is just ripstop nylon with no fleece backer, so you really need to wear a hat or hooded baselayer with it, and it's a bit crinkly and loud. That said, its adjustments are perfect, and it never inhibits peripheral vision. Also I find myself wishing it had hand warmer pockets, but both of these nits i'm picking are intentional on Arc'teryx's part, being as this jacket is the FL, Fast & Light version. The construction is classic Arc'teryx,… Full review

Procline Comp Jacket

rated 4.5 of 5 stars While marketed as an improvement on the Alpha Comp, this rip-off of Black Diamond's Dawn Patrol LT Hybrid takes inspiration from the original and perfects it. Conditions: Two full seasons in the Rockies, with occasional trips to the Coast Range. Experience 10° to -28° dry conditions as well as two days of very wet snow. Mostly ski touring, ski mountaineering, ice climbing, cycle commuting in the Pacific North West, and mountaineering. Personal: Fairly fit late 20-year-old male, I get really, really… Full review
