bought a monitor down last year in medium. 5'6 180 built body. has alot of room. wore a suit under the jacket and still had room. since i am down to 170 and most likely 150 by nov, i plan on getting the node down in small which should fit perfect.
arcteryx is funny company. some mediums fit good, some fit big, and some fit very tight
i own a few arcteryx jackets and learned early on to try everything in store before buying.
eg.- my alpha sv in medium has so much room, i wear a base layer, sweater, and atom ar for snowboarding and it doesnt feel tight at all.
-while on the other end, i bought a cerium lt in medium and it fits like a small, almost a xs.ended up giving it to my parents. (my friend also bought one in small. 5'7 130lbs and it was way too tight).
-and then the atom ar fits true to size for a medium.
also plan on getting the isogon or align jacket so i will report back with the fit.
the veilance are on another level, even when compared to my alpha sv. love how they dont have any branding on the outside.
