User Review: Arc'teryx Men's Fission SV Jacket
I am a pretty tough grader and don't give a lot of 5-star ratings. But this is an excellent piece; perfect for lift skiing or other cold-weather pursuits that don't generate a lot of heat.
I bought it for lift skiing after many years of using a shell-and-layer system and sometimes finding myself colder than I would have preferred while sitting on the lift.
It is excellent. It kept me very warm (too warm, actually, because I tend to run warm. I was using it at Whiteface in temps in the teens/20s; would have been perfect in the single digits or below zero), and it is very comfortable.
Lots of pockets (kudos to Arcteryx on the pocket design: I inadvertently left the chest pocket with my wallet and car keys open during one run -- !! -- and when I got down to the bottom, after a moment of panic, I found everything was still in there...).
It's pricey, but it is a great piece. Very pleased with it. Highly recommended.
