It should be said immediately that this is not a highly technical garment, and is more suited to around the town activities. If you're after a high performance fleece jacket, then I would not advise this. The jacket is very warm, superbly comfy and obviously looks great. It's perfect for that extra bit of warmth on a cooler spring/summer night, perhaps around the camp fire. I would also wear it while belaying in the spring/autumn if the crag was a bit chilly.
Basically, if you're after a bit of an all around, versatile, non-technical jacket, this is perfect.
And I needn't even mention the fantastic construction quality - it is Arc'teryx, after all.
