The Theta AR Jacket is one of the classics from Arc’teryx, with good reason. Not only is the cut flattering and efficient but when paired with the Strato Jacket or any other Arc’teryx mid layer I’m ready for anything. This shell is great for cross country skiing, a hike in backcountry, or a jaunt around town. The Gore-Tex is super waterproof, breathable, and windproof. I’m 5’6” and at 130 lbs the Medium is a perfect fit. I have enough room to layer and the fit prevents the boxy feel. I have an exceptional full range of motion in it too. What really sets this, and all Arc’teryx jackets apart, though is the hood. I’ve always had problems with not being able to get hoods to fit my head right. The patented Arc’teryx hood fits my bare head, a helmet, or a toque easily, adjusting quickly and securely, it says up even in the biggest gusts. The pockets are well placed and don’t get in the way of my daypack. The bottom of the jacket comes down far enough that I have protection from wet chairs but not so far that my mobility is affected. Arc’teryx continues to impress me and provide me with exceptional products.
