Nice jacket and dry bag

Postby shingaling » Wed Jun 16, 2010 6:40 pm

Picked these up at work - $10 for the jacket and $4 for the dry bag pack. This is the first "hard fleece" jacket I've had, and...um...I don't know if I get it. Less than a shell layer and not quite a sweater. Water beads up on it nicely, but it wouldn't keep out the rain for too long. Breathable all right, but wouldn't keep out the wind. I like it, but I wonder why the thing is $220 (Cdn.) brand new. :!:
Here it is on the Arc'teryx website:

Any road followed precisely to its end leads precisely nowhere. Climb the mountain just a little bit to test that it's a mountain. From the top of the mountain, you cannot see the mountain.

Nice find. Is the fleece quiet when it rubs against itself? Never heard of Hard Fleece.

It is a soft-shell jacket.

They are quiet in the woods, a handsome outdoor fashion jacket and will last longer than Gortex outdoor fashion jackets.

They are useful if you wear a wind-shirt, like a Windstop lightweight shirt or vest. I have a Windstop vest.

They will repel a light-rain or coastal fog. I had a black and gray Arc'Teryx jacket I liked very much.
