Rated 5 out of 5 by from My go-to piece Extremely afraid of the cold. Have tried that heavy parka thing, just didn't work for me as well as layering does. So the loose fit of the Fission actually suits me, since I can fit midlayers underneath. The Fission SV is pretty much the first piece I use once it dips to between 0c - -5c. It keeps me warm on a windy day while waiting for the bus without a shelter. The cords on the hood helps to frame it to the shape of my head, very useful. As the temperature dips lower, I have the Cerium LT and Cerium SV as my midlayer. Both are brightly coloured, so I have the Fission in black. As the outermost layer, great colour to hide any dirt or stain. The only thing I wish it had were hand pockets, preferably lined with fleece. Then it would really be perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing quality, skimps on style I bought this jacket after years of being cold and trying to layer my way to warmth. I feel the cold, especially in low-activity sports or on a chairlift on the ski hill. No amount of layering was able to keep me comfortably warm without reducing mobility or making me feel like a marshmallow. The Fission SV does it all. I can't say enough about the quality of the jacket. It is 100% windproof (proven in the Canadian Rockies on a chairlift with 90 km/hr winds), and amazingly warm with little bulk. I needed only a base layer in -15C (5F). The jacket does not have any pit zips, which I have found to be a bonus, given what I am using the jacket for. I found on my Beta AR that the wind could sneak in through the pit zips even if they were done up, so the lack of pit zips on the Fission SV contributes to its overall bombproof-ness. The Fission SV is very simple. There is no ski skirt, but it does have a well-placed waist draw-cord. There are no bells and whistles like MP3 /iPod holders or access holes, but it has internal pockets for you to stash your skins if you're accessing the backcountry. The only complaint I have is fairly negligible: compared to the Atom or Beta, it looks a bit bulkier in the arms and isn't form-fitting. However, for the warmth and flexibility offered by the jacket (and the ability to layer as much as required), it's a small price to pay. I am sure there is a way to streamline the fit in the future; hopefully they do so in a newer jacket. All in all, I am extremely happy with this purchase. It can work as both and insulator and shell, or just as an insulated shell on the super cold days. I've now enjoyed it in -40C (-40F) for hours on end and have not been cold. Amazing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from OFFER BETTER COLORS NEXT YEAR! I would love to try this coat - as I am always cold at age 55 even though I am much more physically fit than most my age. but do NOT! NEVER@ like black (as i look like i am ready for the coffin) and white will get so filthy and at this price, I would like choices. The light purplish color i don't like - just personal. Offer brighter colors like green or blue or teal or turqoise or purple or red. at this price, I want a color that i like. i like white - but it will get so filthy looking - even though other colors pick up dirt, at least once cleaned, the deeper colors tend to hide the stains more. I think purple is a good color for that. THANKS for listening. the reviews sound great - as i am looking for a REALLY WARM COAT!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product It's durable, and keeps me warm and dry. It has a good fit. It would be nice if there were more colours to choose from though.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Odd fitting I was excited to find this waterproof/windproof jacket and ordered it in my typical size medium in navy. The fabric was beautiful and the quality and construction were excellent. However, I found this to be smaller in the hip area than most jackets and large enough in the arms to accommodate a male body builder's biceps. My husband was hysterical at the sight of it on me. Needless to say, it will be going back and I'll have to continue my search for the perfect jacket. Sigh.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keeping me dry since purchase I recently bought this jacket as I have a rain coat from Arcteryx and love it. I live in the Pacific Northwest where staying dry is difficult. Both of my arcteryx jackets do the job and my newest is nice and cozy. Def worth the investment!
