Epsilon SV Hoodie
I bought this hoodie last year at Large at the time I was 5' 9 150. I am now 170 lbs and felt it was a small in the hood area in the large size. It was really nicely fitted so i kept it and recently i bought another one this time in extra large since i have gained some weight and it is perfect for me. The insides are lined with a warm material. It has a nice shell but it is not as wind proof as I would like but layering usually helps. It is very waterproof but not 100%. Overall I would recommend this jacket.

I was looking for that between season jacket and zeroed in on the Arcteryx Epsilon SV for several reasons. First, I needed something that had a bit of a liner on it. This jacket has it. Further, I wanted something Not Northface as it seems every yuppie in Annapolis wears it. Also, I like the athletic fit of Arcteryx's jackets (ideal for outdoor activities). Lastly, I needed a soft shell. I don't go out too much in down pours so when its a light to moderate rain, Arcteryx's shells are perfect. Recommend this jacket to all.

this jacket is sweet. looks clean. not thick or for super cold weather but does well to block wind and keep warm in milder coldness. north face is overplayed so this makes a great alternative, is more expensive but owns a better, cleaner look.

Awesome Jacket, It has many features. At first, like other Arc'teryx items, it has a high quality, secondly, It could provide much warmth while it is very breathable. Thirdly, It could provide windproof and is very suitable for bad weather in urban activities. I am satisfied with this jacket.

The jacket fits great in size L at 187 cm (6 ft, 2 inch) 86 kg/ 189 pound. The jacket has relatively tight fit and is quite short. I have used it both as midlayer insulation between a wool baselayer and gore-tex membrane shell, and I have used it as a casual jacket. It does not protect you from getting wet in a rainshower. Yet it gives some protection as a stand alone jacket from mild rain, colder days in the spring and fall, and it stops the wind as long as its no more than a mild breeze. As insulation layer it has good fit under the gore tex shell. Its tight fit makes it very comfortable in action on colder days. The jacket is very nice. Details are great. It seems to be very durable.
