Arc'teryx Theta SL Jacket
Jacket is truly waterproof. Water beads right off.
Price Paid: $349
Jacket is truly waterproof. Water beads right off. Used on a regular basis during a 2-week trip with foul weather. Held up excellently while hiking through heavy rain. Kept the chilled wind at bay. Would get a bit hot during strenuous activity, but that's what the pit zips were for.
Perfect length in the back to shield bottom.
Folds up neatly into its own hood. Takes up minimal space. Barely weighs anything.
Fit was excellent. I'm 5'4" 125 pounds, got a Small. Could layer underneath, or not and it still looked great.
I love the Theta SL. It is lightweight, fits great…

I love the Theta SL. It is lightweight, fits great (especially for long limbed individuals), stands up to extensive use, and is completely waterproof. I love this coat and bring it everywhere. I carried it for a 1000 mile trail hike and it was just right.
My only wish is that I felt safe taking it alpine skiing but due to the thin, lightweight fabric I'm afraid if I fell ice might tear it.
