Arc'teryx Men's Nuclei Hoody
Great product (just slightly overpriced)
Arcteryz has prided themselves at being an exclusive and high quality product. this jacket is light, packs extremely small and can hold it's own in pretty cool temperatures (though i wouldn't use this in the dead of winter). Sleek finish and high quality jacket, just a tad expensive though!

Excellent fit, but imho does not need the bag inside pocket
Excellent fit, but imho does not need the bag inside pocket, you just use one of the arms. An inside pocket for phone/glasses is a good idea though...

Very warm and lightwieght
I was a bit sceptical that something so thin and lightweight ould be so comforting to wear in cold weather. However the Nuclei Hoody was an excellent choice for my autumn and early winter hikes in the high mountains near my house in northern Spain. It is extremely lightwieght, comfortable and warm; almost 100% windproof and shrugs off a light shower. I even took it to Moscow where it kept me warm as a top layer in minus 9 degrees and a sharp wind. It almost feels as if you are not wearing it, since it is such a good fit and is made very thin material. The technology is supreme, and I will be taking it everywhere with me this winter.

A lot of Jacket for not much space.
I used this jacket while clinging to a rock face in Scotland for two weeks in November. I used the Nuclei as part of a layer system, and it played its part superbly well. Its super light and does not take up much space given the warmth it provides. Importantly to me was the fact that it keeps you warm despite the the constant drizzle the West coast of Scotland throw at me. Back in London it is a great looking jacket for both dog walking and trips to the pub.
