Arc'teryx Epsilon SV Hoody
Price Paid: $140
Hard to fully write this review but since there is nothing I thought this would at least give people an idea of quality and fit. I got this jacket for my wife and in the end needed to return it due to its fit.
The construction, materials and colors were all spot on. It was very lightweight and was priced reasonably when found on sale. It was the exact jacket she was looking for in every respect except fit.
As far as fit is concerned, it was a large (my wife is a medium in build but usually needs the length of a large), the body was too roomy (probably for layering) and the arms were short. We are going to try the Patagonia Stash instead as they list their sleeve lengths as quite a bit longer.
