I am XS in the insulated and regular field jacket but S in everything else I've tried. the insulated field jackets kind of balloon out at the bottom - check the mr. porter size guide, which is pretty accurate

I'm not sure if any of you guys have had a CG jacket, but I'm debating between The Therme and CG Langford. http://reviews.arcteryx.com/7059-en_ca/Therme-Parka/arcteryx-outdoor-market-therme-parka-mens-reviews/reviews.htm Are these reviews too picky/harsh on the Therme? People seem to be having some issues with this jacket so idk... Any help and insight would be appreciated!
@Caligari is a strong vocal defender of the Therme while I prefer the Camosun. If you're looking for warmth I'd so both gets the job done but if style is a concern and you live in Toronto or Hongcouver, then stay away from Canada Goose
John is right I think the Therme was a one of a kind home run. Nothing looks like it isextremely warm and unbelievably good looking. The Camosun I find far too mundane and looks like the older Khuno. Just stay away from CG.
Well then this is disappointing coming from an Arc'teryx staff member
What you consider cold or warm is relative to how tolerant you are to your environment, B.M.I, layers worn, how far and quickly you walk on your daily commute etc.
The node has 100gsm core loft, not as warm as their field jacket, but still warm. It should be good enough to tolerate single digit temperatures with a light cardigan/sweater underneath, or even a thin Heat Tech shirt from Uniqlo.
Honestly, I don't see the point in the Node Down jacket when the Field IS cost less and is more efficient, unless it's a matter of aesthetics. The only reason for the higher price on the Node is the use of goose down.
Could you elaborate on what you mean by efficient here? Having a hard time between the Field IS, Node, and the Monitor Down. Think the Field IS looks the best but unsure if would be as warm as the down ones. Would appreciate any thoughts!
It's just an opinion of mine that the Field IS is better, their best piece ever made actually. It's got two more pockets than the node, the hood can be stuffed away into the collar area and it cost less simply because it doesn't use down. With proper layering underneath, either one will get you through the winter.
How is this sizing on the Therme? 5'7" / 175lbs good for a Medium?
Mugiwara, I'm the same height and weight as you, and I just ordered a small. Hopefully it has enough room in the shoulders and chest.
Now I need to dump my 8 year old Canada Goose parka. The CG clones seem to multiply exponentially every winter. I'm out.
