Arcteryx Arenite Hoody Features:
The Acrteryx Women’s Arenite Hoody is a technical mid-layer fleece with a cosy hood and two hand warmer pockets. This hooded jacket is the warmest fleece in the Arcteryx Essentials range and is versatile to use whatever your chosen outdoor activity. With a streamline design and the legendary attention to detail found in all Arcteryx products we think the Women’s Arenite Hoody is a great choice for the female outdoor enthusiast.
Love this jacket, it's so comfortable and very warm, it feels hard wearing but also looks good.
Arms are too long for me (I find this with a lot of Arcteryx stuff) but they turn up well - a thumb hole would have been nice though.
Pockets are big and useful, colour (a deep navy with orange highlights) is lovely.
I'm planing to use as a mid-layer for skiing, as well as for travelling, it's versatile and good looking enough for normal weekend wear too.
This Arc'teryx hoody does not disappoint. I love the Marianas colourway. It is a deep navy and the bright orange adds really good highlights. The hoody is thigh length as opposed to waist length like a lot of Arc'teryx products. The quality of the material looks very good, although I have only for this item a couple of times and have not yet washed it. The thickness makes me think it will be a warm layer on an autumnal day. Sizing wise it is true to Arc'teryx sizing. I bought a Medium and am a 10/12 in normal clothing.
