Mountain Equipment Arcadia Jacket Features:
The Mountain Equipment Arcadia Jacket is perfect if you seek a fast and light approach to your mountain adventures. This highly breathable performance piece will keep you comfortable as you aim for the summit in a single push. Full waterproof protection from the Gore-Tex Active membrane guarantees you will stay dry regardless of what mother nature can throw at you and the active fit assures the jacket holds well to your body providing ease of movement.
This is my first outdoor jacket, having recently taken up a variety of outdoor activities. It works well both on the daily cycle to work, and generally when out and about. Lightweight and durable, it is easy to roll up and throw in the boot of the car when heading out; it protects whether it's raining heavily or if it's sunny and windy - keeping you warm when it's cold, yet cool when it's warm thanks to its light weight and breathability. So far I'm very impressed. The jacket is quite small fitting, and so I went one size up from my usual size; I found that this gave a more comfortable amount of room and maneuverability.
