User Review: Arc'teryx Men's Maverick AR Jacket
Fabric: Polartec Thermal Pro with "Nailhead" (supposedly more durable: BS)
Price Paid: 184 CAD +tx (20% off)
Probably the most expensive fleece I've put my money on, I liked this fleece a lot initially. Good fit, good looks, warm, etc.
However, exactly like other reviewer "Mac", I am extremely disappointed with the durability of this product. It pilled like crazy, is an absolute magnet for every imaginable bit of dust, hair... And therefore looks like hell just a year after purchase. The wind flap also didn't hold its shape: it rolled or folded.
As "Mac" pointed out, this is especially ironic considering that this "Nailhead" Thermal Pro fabric was intended and marqueted as very durable against pilling!
I am about to return it to Arc-teryx.
