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.
Where to Buy
Here's what other sites are saying:
Laminated fabric makes the Arc'Teryx Epsilon SV breathable jacket an excellent choice for backcountry touring or mixed-weather aerobic use. Comfortable polyester sheds snow, cuts wind and transfers moisture from your skin so you stay comfortable. Moisture-wicking fleece interior helps draw moisture away from skin, sending it to the fabric's exterior where it can quickly evaporate. Structured(TM) hood with brim fits over your climbing helmet; 1-handed cinch adjustments provide optimal visibility; hood can also be adjusted via handwarmer pockets. Features 2 mesh-lined handwarmer pockets and single internal pocket; zippers are protected with Zipper Garages(TM) to ensure leak-free seals. Jacket fits snugly and layers easily; adjustable drawcord waist and elasticized cuffs enhance the fit while sealing out the cold. Gusseted underarms allow a full range of motion without binding. Waist length with drop back for added coverage. Full-length zipper with chin guard to shield you from possible zipper abrasion.
The extremely versatile Arc'teryx Women's Epsilon SV Hooded Softshell Jacket serves as a breathable outer layer on cool hiking days or warm ski days. Arc'teryx's smooth-faced fleece resists precipitation and wind, and its inner fuzzy face insulates against the chilly mountain air. This jacket's long-ish length covers your lower back when you're in a ski stance, and a cozy softshell hood adds warmth if flurries fly. Arc'teryx gave the women's version of this jacket a figure-friendly cut so it won't look like you stole your boyfriend's coat.
