Thanks for the reply

Sizing advice for Field Jacket IS - I'm a standard 48/Medium. My Partition coat and Field Jacket LT are both size small - could I swing a Medium in the IS? Or would that be too big?

Never size up on the Field

Sigh, that's a bummer

Wait- I thought Field IS was TTS? Or thats at least how I wear them. I am a typical 36 small and other than a tad long sleeve (which I managed to have it shortened) I think they fit fine. Insulation need some room inside to work no?

Interest check: was thinking of listing a Composite jacket in Talus Gray in S or whatever is the smallest size. Unworn and mint condition, I believe this is S/S 15. Has the contrasting back panel. If that is something there is interest in I'll get on top of putting it in B&S. Stock pic is below

 

Edit: also Frame shirt

Yea but Field is so boxy you don't need to size up for additional volume

Hmmm well that's confusing. I'm definitely a 48/Medium in most brands. But my Spring weight Veilance stuff fits large, or at least would definitely allow for a very thick layer underneath.

I'm a true 50 and you can see how the shell version in L fits on me. It's fine if you plan on layering.

Seems everyone here is talking about Veilance now. shog[1].gif

I just got an Ames Jacket the other day in medium. Everything is perfect except for the sleeves which is too long (covers almost up to my knuckles).
I can get by this if I snapped the cuffs to the tightest buttons or rolled up the cuffs, but it is a bit of a hassle.
I also tried on a small earlier today and the sleeves are perfect on that one, but the body is a bit too slim with no room at all for anything but a t-shirt or maybe a very light sweater.

Dilemma, what do you guys think?
Also, has anyone tried the Interstate Jacket? How does the fit and sleeve length compare? I read some of the comments on the Arcteryx Website and most say it fits a bit long and a bit more roomy around the stomach area.

@Pazu Your link shows the same for the model, sleeves up to the knuckles. Probably too difficult to alter the sleeves given the button snaps, so I'll just accept the length.

A bit in the Interstate link but the Ames model looks fine in terms of the length, but perhaps I should say mine is past my knuckles when not buttoned to the tightest cuff.

Anyone got an opinion on the Interstate Jacket as a shell?
I got an old Scorpion Jacket shell which I adored but had to mail back for warranty recently due to the powder skirt lamination deteriorating. They told me they could not fix it so are offering me a replacement out of their new lines so I am debating between the Interstate shell or the Zeta AR shell.
I am going to miss my Scorpion Jacket so much, kind of wish they could just fix it. shog[1].gif

All of my Arc'teryx gear fits perfect in the body but long in the sleeves. With no way to fasten the cuffs, I'm always swimming in my Actuator sleeves. It's just one of those thing you have to get over.  I know some members here have had luck with alterations, I don't think it's worth the risk with seam tape and everything.

 

Regarding the warrantied Scorpion jacket should you be able to get the Rush or Lithic? I just warranted a shell and the rep told me they're moving away from offering the value of the jacket and instead trying to find a replacement near replacement with the same key functions. Neither the Interstate nor Zeta AR have a power skirt while the Rush does.

I do not really need the powder skirt as I mostly just use it in the city as a rain jacket. I am a bit weary of powder skirts now after this bad experience with deterioration.
I do miss the soft fabric and the inner fleece + thickness of my original Scorpion Jacket though, none of the other shells I looked at matched it thus far.

Nice new color this season : looking to sell my black monitor down jacket size M in order to purchase a size S in navy (https://www.ssense.com/en-ca/men/product/arcteryx-veilance/navy-monitor-down-coat/1516503) and also get the navy Field IS (http://veilance.arcteryx.com/product.aspx?language=EN&gender=mens&category=Jackets_and_Vests&model=Field-IS-Jacket) in size S.

The price to pay to get these though!
