Rating: rated 4.5 of 5 stars

Price Paid: $150

Summary

Thick fleece with wind resistance, perfect for a day on the slopes and a walk around Whistler village. I own the "Hercules" which is the same jacket in an older flavor.

Pros

  • Wind resistance
  • Warmth
  • Looks

Cons

  • Thickness

Con: The thickness of the jacket can be a little restrictive. Probably not the best idea for climbing, but great for skiing.  

Pros: Everything else. Warm, sometimes too warm of a jacket. Warmth is comparable to Mountain Hardwear's Monkey Man, but this has added wind resistance and none of the "wow, that's a fuzzy jacket." The wind resistance is good, but only up to about 35 mph winds. Riding on my scooter, it starts to get me at about 35MPH. That's how I came up with that number.  

Fit: OK. 7/10. Mostly a style jacket.

Water resistance: 6/10. The DWR doesnt last long, but it keeps you warmer when you are wet.

Breathability: 7/10

Warmth: 8/10

Layering: Not much room underneath, and it might be silly to put something on top of it.  

Abrasion: Very durable for an insulated "soft shell".

- Backcountry.com refers to the men's version

Like all heroes of myth and mystery, the Men's Arc'teryx Hyllus Jacket delivers powerful protection and supernatural strength behind a streamlined, stoic faade. Incredible high-loft insulation coexists with superb breathability for complete comfort on big mountain pursuits or urban engagements. Featuring Polartec Power Shield O2 High Loft fabric, this soft shell jacket has a smooth nylon face that sheds snow and light precip with a plush shag fleece interior for chill-fighting insulation. This Arc'teryx jacket makes a great mid-layer for storm days on the mountain when you layer it under a waterproof shell, but the clean lines and sleek styling will serve you equally well in town as you recount epic turns at altitude. The interior fleece keeps you warm and comfortable when temperatures are low and it's highly breathable to keep you dry during climbs, hikes or while enjoying a few laps on sun-drenched spring corn. Designed for maximum range of motion and pill-free durability, the Arc'teryx Hyllus Jacket for men delivers powerful performance whenever and however you demand it. Hyllus, legendary warrior and son of Hercules, would approve.
