Fabric: soft shell, polyester
Price Paid: $198
For comparison, I purchased (internet/mail order) SIX soft shell jackets with the intention of keeping one. This one, hands down, fit the best and looks the best. I'm counting on the Artc'Teryx reputation for performance, since I haven't had a chance to put it through its paces yet. I can easily tell as a run-around jacket it will definitely fit the bill... Excellent fit, very stylish design, reasonable (in comparison) price. This is the first Arc'Teryx product I ever bought...it won't be the last!
