User Review: Arc'teryx Men's Theta AR Jacket
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $405
The only good thing about this jacket it will keep the wind out. It will also keep you warm and dry. The materials of the jacket are falling apart.
- Keeps you dry
- Jacket falling apart.
- Made in China explains it all!
I bought this jacket thinking I was buying a top of the line product, the best of the best for mountaineering. I was wrong when I started to see the jacket falling apart at the seams. I would expect this from a jacket less than $100, but not a $450 jacket.
I am very disappointed in the quality and build of the jacket. However it does keep the wind and the rain from getting to the clothing you wear under the jacket, except for the areas where the materials fail. I could understand it if I wore this jacket frequently, but I only use it hiking in the winter.
It has to go back to Arc'teryx for replacement or repairs. Also I get pretty hot in the winter with this jacket, even with the pit zippers open. I agree with the other poor reviewers.
