I traded in my arcteryx atom lt for this jacket. Very similar. The black diamond has much more venting. The hard fleece venting runs all the way from hips to the wrists. This makes it loose warmth but much more suitable for activity. The fleece sides are a bit scratchy but should have min contact to bare skin. The fit is exellent. Very athletic cut so looks great and very fuctional. My one complaint is the zipper. It snags itself and does not zip smooth at all in spite of being YKK. I have heard a few issues with long term durability but I see no problems yet. Not a do all winter jacket but perfect for walks, hikes, snowshoe, skis etc.
