Don't make the same mistake I did when I started getting back into hiking and backpacking: I got too focused on price and didn't pay enough attention to what I actually needed any specific piece of gear for, in a granular way. I.e., If I needed a rain jacket, I did some research and bought the best one I could afford at the time. I soon saw the error of my ways.
If you are outdoors for extended periods of time, in often extreme and/or unpredictable conditions, your comfort and sometimes your life is dependent on having the right gear for you. "For you" being the operative phrase.
I needed a lightweight, pack able, totally waterproof/bombproof shell that could be worn either over lighter layer(s), or over my down UL jacket. I'm walking long distances so weight is a huge deal. As is the ability to stay totally dry, get to my pockets over my backpack straps, ventilate with pit zips and adjust the sleeves and hood.
Great jacket. Regarding the comments about high pockets- Archteryx makes high end alpine jackets and other pieces with specific intended purposes in mind. The pockets on this jacket are high to clear a backpacks waist belt or a climbing harness..
I am 5"9', 173 lbs and usually my size is medium. This jacket fits very well. The torso length is pretty good, the sleeves are a bit longer, but once you use the velcro it is no big deal, it is actually perfect for layering. There is not a lot of room for layering, but I actually like that. I can put a base layer and a packable down jacket under it and still have some space left. The design is very flattering. The hood can be adjusted on both sides, plus on the back, which makes it very versatile. You can make it so tight that will contour your face. I like the fact you can close it all the way to bellow your mouth, giving you extra protection. I tested it under heavy rain/wind and not a drop went inside. I still don't know if I like the pockets or not, they are higher than all my other jackets, making my hands be on my ribs, as opposed to above the waist. In order to properly test I would have to hike for hours with the hands in the pockets and find out how comfortable...
