Epsilon LT Hoody

rated 5 of 5 stars My favorite jacket. Ever. So i can see why people have a difficult time figuring out what this jacket excels at.  I have two, an XL that i have worn pretty much every day (except in the summer) for the past 5 years.  I use it primarily as a one-tool option softshell/ hardfleece.  This year i got a size Large to use for layering and couldn't be happier.  So it's not as soft or insulated as the Gamma MX, & not as stretchy as the Gamma LT.  It's also a little more than half the price of the… Full review

Atom LT Vest

rated 5 of 5 stars Warm, durable, packs down small, layers well, looks great with everything. I love this vest! I wear it all the time. It's a great layer for keeping my core warm when I need just that extra something, and it fits under most jackets very well.  The material on the sides and front are different, but both are very durable and soft. The zipper is nice and stout and the pockets are nice and deep so I can get my whole hand covered and tucked out of the cold.  Full review

Cerium LT Hoody

rated 3 of 5 stars This is a pretty warm and comfortable jacket, but overall I'm not totally happy with it. I bought this jacket new, from Arc'teryx in smoke grey. I suppose in a darker colour it would be better as I can easily see the different feathers through the fabric. The overall fit and comfort is really nice, the sleeves seem to be longer than on most jackets, which was really helps keep the wrists covered and keep the cold out. I've only had the jacket for two months and haven't used it for much, but the… Full review

Beta AR Jacket

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Has become my go-to shell on big executions. Though I have had this shell for a couple of years. I usually only pull it out when I need that piece of equipment that can do everything. (I have a number of shells including a Beta LT.) I find the outside material much coarser than the Beta Lt, also it has a longer length. Of course Gortex Pro does not breathe very well so you will really appreciate the pit zips. Which also means that it work great in the winter for warmth and venting. It also fits… Full review

Cerium LT Hoody

rated 2.5 of 5 stars Meh. Not so much. I tested this against a 4 ounce heavier Patagonia Down Sweater Hoody and a 2 ounce heavier Rab Xenon. Nope. Not worth the extra money. Very nice quality and fit, but, no. For a week I did my morning sunrise walk in temps ranging from 22°f to 32°f. I put the jackets outside and wore one then the other on a 1/4 mile walk up the road and 1/4 mile back. I wore a Patagonia lightweight baselayer long sleeve under them one morning, then 200wt Icebreaker another day, and 200 wt plus… Full review
