Nuclei AR Jacket

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Light, compressible, highly water resistant, completely windproof with tape sealed seams. It's also a very good length for my long torso. I recently did a review for the toughest synthetic down jacket you can buy. The Carinthia Alpine jacket. It has reinforced elbow pads and shoulder pads. However it is a little short for me and it is very heavy (940gm!). Both of these problems are solved by Arc'teryx Nuclei AR Jacket. It weighs in at 450gm — less than half the weight. And it fits me perfectly… Full review

Bora 65

rated 5 of 5 stars The Bomb — indestructible, comfortable, and capable. Awesome multiday backpack can carry it all anywhere almost effortlessly due to the suspension system which transfers the load to where it should be. Originally bought a lower quality pack, but it was so uncomfortable because it was not really designed to carry loads. I'm glad I had that bad experience because it made me spend a little more so I wouldn't have to suffer again. Great accessibility through side zip and zippered pouch, has all the… Full review

Squamish Hoody

rated 4.5 of 5 stars I now have two of these, the older and less waterproof version circa 2011 and the 2015 one. It's something I use daily. This compact and light piece of reassurance is something that travels with me daily to work, the beach, and the mountains. The hoody acts like my temperature regulation unit. Wearing this (old version) on winter 4K summits in the East has surprised me since I've expected to be much colder in my layering system. In fact there have been at least two times that I've worn a merino… Full review

Beta AR Jacket

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Arc'teryx tough, waterproof, and roomy enough to wear a reasonable size layer underneath. Size correctly, I usually wear a medium, and the piece is spot on. I use it for hiking/trekking, but it would likely work as well for skiing, climbing and general use. I withheld half a star because the price is a bit stiff, even on sale. Here I will only add information about Beta AR's practicality. Arc'teryx obviously spent time and money picking the best materials (Gore-Tex Pro and fabric that can withstand… Full review

Zeta AR Jacket

rated 5 of 5 stars Perfect jacket for hiking, backpacking, trekking, or tramping (as we call it here in New Zealand). Fit & Comfort I am 5'8" and 198lbs (chest: 96cm, waist: 103.5cm). Yes, I have a beer belly and I found that the medium fits perfect and I can still add a light layer without it being too tight. I was confused at first which size to get as my waist is much bigger than my chest, which fits perfectly in the medium on the size guide, but my waist fits in with the XL on the size guide. So I got the… Full review
