Odd sizing from Arc'teryx

Reviewed by Dave from Colorado on Sunday, October 16, 2016
This Chinese-made jacket is overpriced at retail, but STP's deal makes it reasonable. I'm sure the Gore-Tex pro would make a durable, lasting hardshell, but the sizing of this jacket wouldn't work for me. At 5'8" and 175lbs, I'm pretty much the definition of a Medium, and Arcteryx gear in Medium normally fits me perfectly. While the medium was good in most dimensions, it was simply too tight around my 40" chest, most noticeably around the armpits. I returned it for a size Large, which was simply too long and baggy overall. Would've liked to keep this jacket, but I'm moving on to the Zeta AR, in size M.
