Waist - Measure around the natural waist, which is often the narrowest part of your waist.

Hip - Measure around your hips at the widest part.

Sleeve Length - With your arms in a slightly bent position, measure from the center of the back of your neck, along the length of your arm, to the wrist.

Inseam / Pant Length - From a standing position, measure from your crotch to your ankle.

Head Circumference - Measure the full circumference around the widest part of your head.

Hand Length - Measure from the tip of your middle finger to the base of the palm.

Hand Width - Measure the circumference of your hand around the knuckles, excluding the thumb.

• Please note that all the info provided above refers to body measurements, and NOT the dimensions of the garment.


Next to Skin Fit - These snugly-fitting garments are made with stretch fabrics to fit next to the skin to enhance moisture management and thermal efficiency. Garments in this fit category when constructed using Arc'teryx's heavier-weight AR and SV fabrics also perform very well as mid layer pieces, and users should consider selecting a larger size to accommodate a base layer underneath if the intention is to use this layering system as a mid layer option.

Trim Fit - Trim-fitted garments share the motion-friendly traits with Arc'teryx "Athletic" fit garments, but are patterned with lower volume for reduced bulk. These close-fitting pieces layer well under other garments.

Athletic Fit - This is the "Arc'teryx Standard" fit. These complete patterns utilize anatomical shaping and gussets to enhance motion by minimizing excess bulk. Easy layering under or over each item extends seasonal versatility and comfort.

Relaxed Fit - Relaxed fit garments rely on higher volume patterns and a reduced amount of articulation to offer roomy mobility.

Expedition Fit - Cut roomier than the Arc'teryx Athletic fit and suitable for winter/extreme conditions, Expedition (XPD) fit garments are cut larger to accommodate multiple layers without binding or restricting movement.

• You can find the fit type and additional fit info for Arc'teryx styles in the product description FEATURES and SPECIFICATIONS.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from waterproof, warm, looks great - all round great jacket I bought this jacket about 2 months ago from moosejaw after I decided there was no way I was going to freeze through another New York winter. It's kept me warm in all conditions (down to about 15F) so far with just a t-shirt on under it. ,,,,It's definitely passed the waterproof test; I've walked home in a few down pores and been completely dry when I arrived.,,,,The only negative thing I can say is that the hood (which I love) is sometimes hard to adjust so it's both comfortable and fits close to your face to keep you warm. This may just be something that I have to keep working on.,,,,I'm 5'11", 180lbs and the large fits me perfectly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Buy this jacket if you have the extra cash or find a deal somehow I am 5'11'', wear a 33" waist, and weight about 160 lbs. If you have long arms and a longer torso, as I do too, then you should go with the large. If you are even close to my dimensions go with the large. I searched up and down for more information on Termatek as compared to Primaloft. The only thing I could come up with was that it may be more efficient at trapping heat, and lighter weight. The Termatek does make a sort of weird crinkling sound whenever you move. If you are looking to be quiet in your outdoor pursuits, you may want to consider another jacket. All in all, this is the perfect all around outdoor and casual waterproof and warm jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Coolest, Most Functional Jacket by Arcteryx One word to describe this parka ... Awesome!!! This parka is so light that you barely notice it on your body, but even in NYC's worst, most brutal wet wind chill cold, I can go out with a t-shirt and nothing more underneath this parka. Bravo! Arcteryx. Even at $700, it is a deal if you can forego buying another 2 layers of clothing. About the only thing that detracts from this parka is that it is a little noisy outside because of the fabric consistency -but such a minor inconvenience for such a superior product. Arcteryx has totally stuffed the competition with this unbelievable parka ... "raise the bar!" Perfecto!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best Jacket on the Planet. Period. Using a light - but durable - shell of 250N Gore-Tex, packed with plenty of ThermaTek insulation, the new Fission SL Jacket delivers exception warmth-to-weight, and is totally water proof. It's just perfect over a long sleeved hydrophobic shirt (Patagonia shirts are my favorite). The Fission SL has pit zips, to help avoid overheating, and is just so friggin' comfortable, you won’t want to take it off. ,,,,While there are more pricey jackets, with fancy labels, if you want a high quality, light, durable, breathable, fully waterproof, insulated jacket, with an insulated storm hood to boot, made by one of the industry’s best – Arcteryx - then you've found your jacket. I know I have.,,

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect All Around Perfect all around jacket. Not too bulky/warm (like my SV version) and easy to dump excess heat with the pit zips (unlike my SV version). A bit slimmer cut that the SV as well - which makes a perfect fit for me. The hood is insulated and warm - on same days, wish it stowed away. Pretty warm jacket with minimal layers. The black is a nice color too. A little crinkly at first, but goes away after use. I wish I bought this jacket first instead of the Alpha LT, Sidewinder AR and AV or even the SV version of this jacket. This jacket works in most conditions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME Phenomenal Jacket Purchased a year ago. Have been in all sorts of weather, Hard Rain, Wind, Sever Cold, You name it and this jacket rocks. Snowboarding with a thin layer underneath you stay very comfortable never cold, where it on my motorcycle and feel NO WIND! even on the coldest days, where it over my suits for work in the winter. Its awesome the only jacket you need. Use it all of the time. Its light and a pleasure to wear. RAIN WIND and COLD you are comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Jacket I Have Ever Owned. This jacket is no doubt the best thing ever created to keep you warm in the coldest, most remote places on earth. I live in Northern Greenland and with the second highest wind speeds ever recorded on earth here and some of the coldest temperatures I've ever seen at -60F this jacket still keeps you warm with just a few thin layers underneath. There is no other jacket that can compare.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm, light but easy to get scratched Used this one for a 4-day mountaineering trip with weather conditions like gusty wind, chill, heavy snow. I was really happy that the jacket kept me warm and dry inside all the way to the summit. The only thing I need to remind is that the gore-tex shell is not that strong for sharp rocks. I got scratches on my jacket when I climbed a technical route.
