Worth every penny.
Yes, Arc'teryx pieces are pricey, so I guess that would be the only negative comment on this awesome jacket. I have been using this jacket for nearly four years and it still looks great. This jacket withstands harsh conditions yet keeps you looking stylish enough to go to the bar without looking like a total scrub. I have been most impressed with the breathability and durability of this fabric. Arc'teryx has selected materials that are super bomber and feel great against the skin. I consider myself to have an athletic build and this jacket fits me very well. I am able to wear a layer or two underneath for cold days, yet it still fits snugly to my body with just a shirt underneath.
