Rated5out of5byKG1fromFeels A little FuturisticI've Been Wearing the Orange as a Middle layer Over a lightweight Salomon Base that Has a Nice Hood with Visor. When It's Dry I Add a Marmot fleece & When it's Wet I Go with My Chrome Cobra. The Material is Very Pleasing to the Touch & the fit Does leave a little Room for layers Underneath. Sometimes You Wonder if the Asking Price was Worth the Item, In this Case it's Well Worth the Price of Admission.

Rated5out of5bydaltofromGreat updateThis is a great update of the Accelero. It's finally trim-fitting, as it's supposed to be (although still not as trim as the Incendo). Fabric has a great feel. Works well in cool temps, as the new thumbhole cuffs would suggest. But they can easily be tucked away if you warm up or want to wear this handsome jacket in casual settings. I don't find it exceptionally breathable, but I haven't found anything that protects you from the weather to have great breathability. If you're running you generate a lot of heat and sweat so you're going to get a little clammy. All around, really nice jacket and I'm glad that it finally is sized right.

Rated5out of5byPsychedelic HansfromVersatile, lightweight shellI've worn this jacket as a shell for dozens of road and trail runs in wet/cold/windy weather, and I'm constantly amazed by how well it performs over the widest range of conditions (sub-zero wind-chills up to mid-40s). It's very lightweight, yet it sheds precipitation and stands up to wind like a heavy rain shell AND it's super breathable when it needs to be. The inner-sleeve thing at the wrist with the thumb-holes is a nice touch. The zippers seem to be good quality, although I hardly ever use the little pocket on the side (I run with a hydration pack). This is the most versatile layer I own, hands down - a key piece of my arsenal.
It should be noted that the orange colorway (cayenne) is much brighter/less red than it appears in the above picture. IMO it's on the verge of obnoxiously bright, but if one needed to get rescued, they'd have the best chance of being seen.
Bottom line: Arc'teryx delivers
