My first impression of this jacket was it is very thin and light. It has exactly two Polartec 100 (thinnest Polartec fabric) layers that combine to give this jacket a total thickness of about two thin shirts. This jacket is thinner than many sweaters and certainly most jackets. This jacket is also not windproof nor waterproof and not suitable for cold, windy, or rainy conditions.
This jacket is very thin and can be packed into a very small space. It is ideal for spring and autumn activities and chilly morning walks for temperatures ranging from 58-72 degrees. I think these would also be suitable for jogging and other types of exercises below the 58 degree mark for most people.
The Polartec fabric is durable after many washes and is highly breathable so you can sweat in these without worrying about evaporation.
I am 5'8'' and well built 160 pounds and the medium size fit me well. These are athletic (tight) fit and are worthy of the Arteryx's brand in...
Keep in mind that the Delta lt is a trim-fitting jacket, so you might want to size up. I got the size medium (5'10, waist 33, chest 39, sleeve 34), but a large would have suited me better, as I find the front length to be short, the chest space a bit restrictive, and the collar to be tight, requiring some breaking in. As for its use, I tested it in cold weather and it does great for what it is intended, a light layering piece. The flimsiness of the material, the uncontoured shape of the torso, the color Olympus Blue (considerably brighter than what is presented in the picture), and the tacky left arm zip pocket, all lend a somewhat cheap appearance to it. As for Arcteryx, which in my opinion is running itself in the ground (increasingly bad designs, overpriced, made in China) one thing to consider is that there will be little merit in touting a "great warmth to weight ratio", when your brand has become notorious for its high cost to value ratio (e.g. Hyllus jacket), and the Delta is...
I have carried this fleece on two recent backpacking excursions. It is extremely light and perfect for a cool evening in the mountains. I look forward to many uses for this product.
