Arc'teryx Delta Shearling Jacket
I have waited to review this jacket, but could tell…
Fabric: Bipolar 200 fleece
Price Paid: $119
I have waited to review this jacket, but could tell from the first time I wore it that it was a great buy. The cut is the best part, athletic and suited to a thin frame. If you are a "larger" person, I recommend buying one size larger than usual, or buying something more like North Face or Columbia.
I purchased this jacket in Shadow, or dark midnight blue. The fleece is exceptionally soft, due to the fuzzy interior of the bipolar fleece. It is also very warm, that is unless you are in direct wind; this can be great if you use this jacket for aerobic activity, however... Otherwise, pack a thin shell, or wear something like a Marmot drilite windshirt as base layer.
The sleeves are constructed of Polartec stretch fleece and make movement in this jacket silky smooth.
This jacket is good enough looking to wear as a single item and looks great even when in a nice restaurant.
I give this item 5 out of 5 stars, a very nice piece worth more than the price you will pay; you will use it often and not need to buy anything in irritation, believe me.
