Firstly, I did a lot of homework before making the purchase of this jacket as there is a lot of competion out there regarding waterproof jackets, varying from comfort to fit to quality and practicality! Read various reviews that some of the Arc'teryx brand is manufactured in China which will no doubt put people off instantly but was dubious that a jacket costing over Â£500 that was made in China was going to be the pinnacle of craftmanship! I stand corrected. The jacket is superbly made. Absolute top quality. The stitching, seams, cut, finish is truly remarkable. Faultless. The Expedition cut that this jacket has suits me perfectly as there is no pulling across the shoulder area when stretching or reaching. The length is ideal for me aswell as I'm 6'4" and around 16 stone the size Large is perfect with still room for mid layers too. By the way the XL was way too big! Excellent waterproofness too. To sum up a quality engineered jacket that does exactly what you want it to...comfortably! Don't be put off by the China tag. Suppose China have got it right when it comes to manufacturing things. If a company wants a jacket to sell for Â£50 that falls apart after a few months then this is feasible to make....on the flipside if a company wants to make a jacket that sells for Â£500 that is perfect which will last for years and years this is also feasible even from China! Your call though. PS. Many many thanks to the guy in the Arc'teryx store in Covent Garden for helping me with this investment!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Sinclc Favourite ski jacket yet!
I've been skiing for 30 years and have to say this is my favourite jacket I've had. I do a lot of off piste skiing and hiking and love how this jacket works in different conditions, allows you to layer perfectly, has lots of pocket space, and has great ventilation. The only drawback with this purchase was actually finding it - sold out/unavailable for months, but worth the wait!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Piratechuckles Great product
Excellent product in all respects. Just one comment Expedition fit is generous but combine this with what seems like US sizing and you might need a size smaller than you think

Amazing jacket and brilliant outer shell. The best I've ever had. Allows free range of movement and the 3D helmet with my skiing helmet works phenomenally! This is the benchmark for excellence.

I first bought an earlier version of this jacket 8 years ago. It was worn everyday from mid October to end of March each year plus other rainy days. After all this time it still looks pristine but it's water repellancy - while still quite good - has diminished so even though it is expensive I decided to buy another. These are very expensive but you never ever arrive at work damp - no matter what the weather. As a matter of info I also carry waterproof trousers for very wet days and wear Swims (Helmut II).
Palmed off old jacket to teenage son who just likes the brand and doesn't care that it is no longer as repellant as he is still dryer than he was before!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Batcave19 A top jacket!
If you need a jacket for every situation, then look no more - this is it!
Arc'teryx Theta SVX jacket is light, comfy, practical and every penny worth if you need a jacket for the mountain, the street and for style in every weather you can find on earth - the last one I had lasted allmost 10 years with every day hard use before it started to give up. And at no time had the water proofing failed or let me down - even in hot climate the ventilation kept me dry and comfy where I was traveling.
Once again Arc'teryx have designede and build a peace of equipment you can trust to work. A true friend where I go, high or low, this is the best you can get!
