I must love this hoody as I have several in different colors. It is a great piece for layering with a hard or softshell jacket, and great stand alone piece for mild weather. Not at all windproof or water repellent, but very warm if you aren't dealing with those issues. Although Arcteryx is now making most of their items in China, not Canada, the quality seems to have remained the same. It runs a tad smaller than other brands, so go up in size if you want a little room and are on the upper cusp of a size. Pilling is an issue with my black colored hoody, we will see if this is the case for this color. My other colors don't pill, but I don't wear them as much as my black one. Nice item otherwise.

This is one of my favorite hoodies. The fit is great, not bulky, but streamlined. But not tight. The hood is a cool shape, it fits very well and snug under my snowboarding helmet, without being too bulky. There isn't much wind protection, but its a great as a light jacket or layering under your snow jacket. The fabric is very breathable too.

I purchased this to wear as a midlayer for skiing, but it is so comfortable and cosy that I don't want to take it off. It's stylish, too, so I can wear around town. I have noticed some pilling on the sleeves after just a few wearings, which is a bummer, but I still love the hoody. I bought the darker blue color and it is very attractive. I like that it doesn't look like a regular fleece - more like a sweater

Live in it all winter...
I have the lighter color and absolutely love it! I basically wear it all winter. The quality is great and it feels so soft. Highly recommend it. I will be buying another when this one wears out. Although, I have had it for 3 years and it still looks great considering how much I wear it.
