The Arcteryx Women's Strato Hoody is a distinctively textured, technical snow sports layering piece in a relaxed fit. A specialty of Arcteryx, their Polartec Thermal Pro Cobble material insulates and breathes during activity, and a laminated brim maintains shape and improves visibility. The Strato hoody features low profile stretch-woven cuffs that shed snow, and at a mere 16.8 oz, bulky layering under shells and gloves is virtually non-existent. However, I cannot guarantee against bulkiness when you decide to wear three other sweaters under your hoody because you’re not brave enough to walk across campus in a blizzard. Man up woman.

I was lazy and shopped on line and bought this after having a nice live chat. Normally Arcteryx products are a little short on my monkey arms but this one hangs down over my knuckles and is super baggy on my arms. It's so weird it made me think the arms of a larger size were sewn on a smaller body. But like I said, I'm lazy and I hung it up and left town for a month or so. All the time wishing I had either brought it with or taken it back.If it weren't for the strange arms I'd love it. If you buy on line go to live chat and have them measure the arms first.
This is a typical Arcteryx product. Extremely well made.I purchased this for my 13 year old daughter and she absolutely loves it. She is 5'6" and weighs 117 lbs, got her a medium, fits a little on the big side but she is still growing, hopefully it will last this season and next. She normally doesn't wear a coat regardless of the weather outside and just wears one of her club soccer warm up jackets - too thin and not very warm. Once I gave her this jacket she won't take it off. Arcteryx isn't well know at her age group but she still really likes wearing it and gets lots of complements from her friends.
I use this hoody to go from class to class on campus. It's warm, comfy and wicked stylish. It is usually hard for me to find hoodies I like because I have a long torso but this fits me perfectly. People are always telling me how much they like the curacao blue color. Arcteryx is so much superior to any other company because they really care about making a quality technical and fashionable products. Other lines seem to focus to much on fashion.
"I'm only repeating what my girlfriend told me!!!!!"
My GF was getting jealous that I was buying all this Arcteryx gear for myself that I felt bad (not really) so I bought her a piece just so she could feel as special as me (once again, not really) Erin, (who's the GF) said she loved this piece not only cause she looks Fashionably Fabulous, but likes the length it has because she has a long torso and a little waist (lucky me :) ) and it keeps her warm and if she's still a little chilly, that's when I cuddle up next to her and ...... well you get the idea! Anyways, she's very happy with this product and also likes it better than her Pategonia better sweater.
