Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great mid layer Recently purchased this jacket as I really liked it when I saw it in store. This is great for frigid weather as an outer. I've yet to test it in extreme cold, but I believe it'll be a great midlayer. I really like the fact it has a hidden snood built in to the hood. This will cover the neck area, & when needed cover mouth & nose. This is a great feature. I give this 4.5 out of 5. It would be a 5 if they had a hem draw cord - to help seal in the heat. I'm pretty tall & the XXL fits great. little bit extra in the sleeve, but not an issue (& most of my Arcteryx jackets have long sleeves - maybe I'm the issue?). Overall, great jacket & I'm pleased with the purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Badass jacket Take your best shot. It won't faze the Fortrez. I've been wearing this jacket literally non stop for the past week, sticking my arms in cracks this jacket has no business being in, arm-barring, hand jamming, and generally just beating the living daylights out of this it. Barely a thread out of place. I literally wake up, put this jacket on, and don't take it off until I hit my sleeping bag at night. I don't notice it on the approach, climb or the hike out. THAT is when you know a jacket is excellent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely Durable The exterior material looks really good up close, better than in the pictures online. Kind of a 3-d checkered pattern. I doubt anyone can make a fleece that is more resistant to pill/abrasion, mine looks like the day i bought it. It's actually a bit water-resistant so I have worn it in light rain and it didn't soak up water. I wear it hiking and have worn it on its own in slightly below freezing temperatures with a phase SV base layer and i wasn't too cold, it definitely keeps you very warm. breathable too, but just don't use this on a hot day, cool/cold weather only. I'm 6'0" 200 lbs, I wear a large and it fits well. The built-in balaclava face-guard actually came in useful on super cold days. It has a sport fit, not baggy but not skin-tight.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Like it very much but... I wish the color description would be more accurate, I was expecting a black jacket with grey breast pocket and bright red zipper and details, but in reality the jacket Nighthawk is blueish with bright orange details. So it wouldn't hurt to name it Nighthawk Blue and orange on the description. It happened also with a running shirt, I was expecting a blueish color and it arrived greenish. So if the pictures online change the color, please add a more descriptive info about the product. Other than that I like my "blue" jacket, fits great and excellent quality.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Needs Revision I was very excited to try out the Fortrez hoody but had to walk away from it. 1. The main zipper has trouble zipping up when it gets to the neck. At first I thought it was me but then I realized it need an extra finger to guide the unkinking of the fabric at that point. 2. For its purpose, the length should be at least a couple cm longer at the waist because it lifts too much when the arms are raised. I like the baklava idea but the design needs revision and so does the price of such a light fleece.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Odd Fit I thought this would be a good piece of gear for me. The integral balaclava seemed a neat idea. I love Arc'teryx and have lots of their stuff but this one just didn't work. Sizing is sometimes a challenge, especially when ordering online. It helps if you have items in some of the different sizing styles so you can try to triangulate a possible fit; however, either I really blew it with this one or it's just odd. I think it's just odd. I'm 5'6'' and about 81kg: short and stocky; certainly not thin or long-limbed, but pretty solid. I ordered a large, which often works with their tighter, more athletic or slim fitting styles. This one here was quite tight on the arms, especially the forearms; it fit great around the chest and shoulders, but was overlarge on the torso and especially the stomach. It seemed to billow out on the lower end. I put it on and almost immediately took it off. I really wanted this piece to work but it was an odd cut. Given my frame and build a little more relaxed fit in the torso could actually be a good thing. Even still, one would have to be pretty hefty around the mid-drift for this to be a comfortable fit. I left on the tags and am going to sell it, hopefully recoup my losses and get something else…oh well, the risks of online ordering. While the Fortrez was a fail I'm a serious convert and have plenty of other Arc'teryx gear that works great for me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost, but not quite Really wanted to love this, but I think it needs a few tweaks. Pros: Very warm, soft and comfortable, Arcteryx quality, pockets are great, and chest pocket first an iphone perfect. The konseal hoody which is also very nice is better as a baselayer while this one functions better as a midlayer.. Oh and the balaclava... BOMB.. the hood fits perfectly, layers under a helmet flawlessly and better than an R1 hoody, and the balaclava face cover is exceptional and unique. However... Cons: I agree with a previous reviewer about the length. This is billed as a climbing piece and for that I think at least 3 more inches and a bottom stretch hem is crucial to keep it in place. The way it is cut right now, the gusseting or the length isn't enough and its going to come right up over your waist when you're reaching to swing that ice axe. If you wear it for skiing where your arms aren't above your head very often or on purpose anyway, the extra length isn't necessary, but it doesn't hurt. In addition, as much as I like the balaclava i think it could be improved. This piece over all is a pretty solid competitor to the R1 hoody. However, compared to the R1 hoody where you can zip and unzip the face cover, on the Fortrez you are pretty much stuck wearing the balaclava all day. You can in theory pull it down as a neck warmer, however the balaclava part is attached to the back of the hood. This means that if you pull down on the mask to make it a neck gaitor, you end up with a weird tension on the back hood and around your neck. Certainly tolerable, but I guess if you're going to spend the money can't hurt to expect perfection! I think the R1 hoody wins here with ease of use and versatility. (In case someone somewhere cares, this is what I would do... Use the phase AR neck gaitor design which goes over the nose and under the chin, and stick that onto the fortrez jacket. replace one of the side seams with a tiny zipper that is continuous with the body of the jacket, basically mimic the R1 hoody, however the way arcteryx cuts their neck gaitor accomodates the climbing helmet/skiing helmet chin strap much more comfortably than the R1 hoody which tends to pull and bind. Behind that and separate from the neck gaitor keep the hood from the fortrez jacket because it fits incredibly well and lays flat against the face, unlike the R1 which tents out on the sides. This allows more versatility with the gaitor to create a balaclava, a gaitor only with hood down, or hood up neck gaitor but without the tension) Overall: I have not had any problems with zippers on this or the konseal hoody, construction/pockets/zippers/face fabcric/durability/etc are all standard arcteryx awesomeness. I would definitely recommend this as a midlayer for skiing/boarding, but I feel the length issue really kills it as an ice climbing piece. In the end I think a few tweaks could really mix things up and maybe bring down the R1
