I think you might be an S - try both if you can

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.

@Caligari I suppose you own a Therme. Based on reviews and questions on other sites, some people say it lacks a 2 way zipper, yet another site says it always had a 2 way zipper. Can you confirm either statement?

Both the Camosun and the Therme do not have a 2 way.

Well then this is disappointing coming from an Arc'teryx staff member

Why don't you outline what you're looking for in a winter coat. Just look at the Camosun picture and you'll notice a stopper at the bottom of the zip. IIRC the only bird jackets with a two-way zip is the Khuno and Galvanic but for the length of the Camosun, it doesn't really need a two-way.

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.

@Caligari How is this sizing on the Therme? 5'7" / 175lbs good for a Medium?

I'm 6' and 190 and I wear anything from a medium to an XL in the Bird. My Therme is M.

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.

Spoke to the warranty department and the Therme will be returning next winter, also I was able to find out that the Monitor Shell for Spring/Summer will be available in the Neptune Light colour from this winter. Altitude Sports still has the Therme (Black) for 20% OFF this black friday.

Great decision to bring back the Therme because the Camosun is just CRAP.
