Arc'teryx trademark features:
Drop storm hood
Laminated zippers and pockets
Tiny seam tape
Water resistant zips
Has an absolutely great logo
Seam tape bleeds
Just how strong are laminated zips and pockets?
O'dear no mesh on the pockets!
Has a weird drop back.
I used my Arc'teryx Theta AR Gore-Tex XCR Jacket in the Alps recently whilst doing a uni geography study on a glacier. Where we were was right in the middle of the off draft of cold air coming down from the glacier. The air temp was on average 7.5oC in the sun, so my team donned all layers! I, however, simply pulled out my Theta AR, battened down the hatches and was continuously warm for the whole 9 hours of research. Not to mention that it made itself known during an Alpine storm, keeping me and my notes dry up top!
I would definitely recommend this jacket! You can read more about this jacket in my previous review.
