The minimalist design and fully articulated patterning gives an exceptional fit and freedom of movement. Featured with a WaterTight™ front zipper and two hand pockets with RS™ sliders. The non-helmet compatible StormHood™ secures with a halo adjuster. The adjustable cuff and hem help seal out the weather.

Arcteryx jackets are beautifully constructed and look elegant but the long term value (unless you get a good deal at somewhere reasonable like e-outdoors, is questionable.) The first thing to go on them always seem to be the inside of the pockets where the seams fray and the material thins and tears. The waterproofing isn't assured either - even after following washing instructions. The company relies on a more fashion conscious clientele and the cut and design caters well for them (although the full retail price is outrageous when you consider that it is very cheaply assembled in China.) However, even under less rigorous urban daily use Arcteryx jackets give very poor bang for your buck. The company also has a niggardly , penny pinching, approach to added value items like a simple laminated inside pocket - would cost an eye watering additional £40 to £50 as an upgrade for the next jacket up! Arcteryyxz also have a very poor warranty and begrudging after sale customer service considering the premium prices they charge. It takes weeks (yes weeks) to get a response from them and they charge for postal costs and will only repair rather than replace faulty jackets. They also reserve their right to charge you for a repair for the fault! Indicative of arrogance and unreasonable customer service rather than willing professionalism.
I would recommend Arcteryx jackets if you can get a reasonable discount off the price and can overlook their miserly, less than generous approach to providing full convenience features.
