Comments about Arc'teryx Konseal Jacket - Men's:
After reading that this jacket won a Polartec Apex award for 2013, I decided that I really wanted to try it out for myself.
Out of the box, the fit is close and trim. At first glance, the sleeves seemed just a little long for me, though I realized that is to accommodate the thumb holes in the cuff.
The Polartec Power Dry Hardface fabric is soft and warm on the inside. There is a light water-repellent finish, which so far, seems to shed light drizzle. We'll have to see as time goes on and winter really kicks in.
I was really surprised at the level of warmth with this jacket, considering the low bulk of the fabric.
Breathability is excellent, which is a big issue for me. I've always been a heavy perspirer once my engine gets going, and this fabric handles it exceedingly well. On chilly morning bike rides to work, it kept me warm, whether I was moving or waiting at a traffic light.
Because of the (intentional) trim fit, there's not a lot of room to layer much underneath. But the low-bulk fabric is excellent as a mid-layer underneath something warmer or waterproof when needed. This jacket is versatile for a variety of the activities which I participate in... cycling, hiking, snowshoeing, and I look forward to further "testing" as time goes on.
This jacket shows all of the Arc'Teryx hallmarks of quality construction and design, so I expect to get many years out of this jacket, as I have out of all of my Arc'Teryx products.
I am immediately in love with this jacket, and would highly recommend it to anyone who values comfort, warmth, and breathability in a lightweight garment.
