Theta AR Jacket

rated 1.5 of 5 stars Bought this jacket at Cotwold for £380.00 GBP. In 2 months of ownership I took it in torrential rain for 2 hours. It leaked at the shoulders. Sent back to Arcteryx and shipped back saying "no manufacturing defect". I will be honest in saying that I don't wish to waste more time writing a thorough review. I have lost time and money and Im very disappointed that Arcteryx took so long to return my jacket. They didn't even telephone to clarify the problem. In essence I was hoping to purchase an expensive… Full review

Gamma SV Jacket

rated 5 of 5 stars Super comfortable. It's still my go-to fleece for park walks and even to the (relaxed dress) office. The fabric has begun pilling around the cuffs and collar. The hem and front has slight abrasion marks. If heading into the elements this is still my most reliable piece. Zips and fastenings all immaculate. Tough? I bought mine for around in 1999 :-) It's likely my most worn item of clothing. Full review

Bora 65

rated 4 of 5 stars Long range comfort and durability with one issue. Read that this pack is the shizzzz, but with one big issue. The pack's main body is made of two different nylon fabrics. There's rip-stop of the main color and plain weave nylon panels of the sides, back and bottom. Both were urethane coated for waterproofing, but only the rip-stop coating remains intact and looks clear and shiny as when new. The coating on the plain weave nylon that consists of half or more of the pack has yellowed and is sloughing… Full review

Bora AR 50

rated 5 of 5 stars The Bora AR pack is a lightweight, water resistant, very comfortable pack for about 30-45 pounds. I have hiked many miles with external frame packs to soft frame packs, some with no hip belts (shows my age) some with little or no adjustments, some that were agonizing to wear, some that were very comfortable. Arc'teryx is my brand of choice. I have hiked with the older Bora models, the newer Altra and Naos packs and now the newest Bora AR packs . The evolution of Arc'teryx packs (for me at least)… Full review

Altra 75

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Lived out of it for a year. Comfortable and extremely durable. Access is excellent. I lived out of this pack for a year in Morocco, South Africa, Turkey, and Indonesia.  In that time I did long distance hiking (carrying lots of food, water, tent gear) in the Drakensberg Range, the Lycian Way in Turkey, and simple backpacking around Bali and Morocco.  My wife had to get a new backpack after that trip.  I just looked at my Altra and it shows very little wear and is perfectly functional. Amazingly,… Full review
