One of the best Arc'teryx values
The Fission SV is a great cold-weather jacket! Its completely waterproof, incredibly warm, and blocks out the wind. The heavy duty outer shell includes reinforcement at high wear areas. The one thing to keep in mind is that its not versatile wear it when its really cold and thats it. Over 30 degrees this jacket is just way too much. But if youre looking for something super warm and durable this has to be one of the best values in the Arcteryx lineup.

Warmest jacket bought ever
Bought this jacket before X'mas but have yet to wear it out as the weather has been quite warm in NYC this winter. Tried it at home a few times. Extremely warm and the fit is great. Sticking with the Fission AR jacket, a very satisfied purchase from Altrec for now. Hopefully the mercury will drop and give me a chance to wear the new Fission SV soon. If you are looking for the warmest and lightest jacket in the market, get the Fission SV, no need to look any further.

Outstanding so far, one minor gripe
I have to admit, I wouldn't normally spend this kind of money on a coat, but I really like my Gamma MX jacket, so I splurged. All I can say is WOW! The coat is easily the warmest I have ever had. So far it has held up to wind, rain, and cold very well. I even was able to walk the dog with just a t-shirt on under my coat, and stayed warm the whole time. My one gripe is the zippers. The are finally a little more friendly, but initially are a real pain. You'd think for the price that they would easily zip up and down. Having to remove your gloves to get it to work = not fun. As mentioned though, they are much better after a little use. Overall, I'd highly recommend it. I was worried about the hood, but it's been a big help too with the wind. It's a keeper.

It is good work.
It was fit though it exactly put on in winter. Warmth, lightness, the storm protection, endurance, and any are very highest. It is likely to be able to go anywhere even in Alaska and the North Pole if this is. It is the highest exactly item of winter.
