User Review: Arc'teryx Men's Maverick AR Jacket
Price Paid: $200
One of the best jackets I've ever owned. Highly recommend to anyone.
I was about to start a trip, Alaska to Argentina by land, and I needed a fleece to last me the entire way. Many different climates, environments, tons of wear and tear, it would be worn almost everyday... When I put it on at the Anchorage REI the articulation sold me immediately. It fits very well. I bought the Arc'Teryx Beta SL Waterproof Shell (lightest waterproof shell) due to identical fit/articulation.
So, after a year 1/2, 18 countries, extremely harsh environments, how did the jacket hold? Amazingly well, actually. Whether I was climbing 15,000ft. peaks, or scrambling to the top of a sand dune in the early morning, I was wearing this jacket. I worked at REI for years, and the number of jackets I own and have tried on is ridiculous.
I have never left a review of a jacket before, ever, and deliberately searched out this site to leave this review. I hope this review has proved helpful.
Just to summarize:
1. Zippers - Indestructible
2. Fleece Material - Highest Quality
3. Articulation/Fit - Best (in my opinion)
4. Weight/Compressibility - Best
5. Design - Minimalist at its best
