    I find the c-change fabric to not work well. For the high price one may as well buy the membranes - eVent and Neoshell.

    guys, please have a look at westcomb outerwear as the pricing is similar to all the big brands and it's made in north america. I suspect they also produce for some of the bigger fashion brands that are mentioned in this thread - look for local production and you will understand.

    I wear M throughout the entire line.. the shirts are nice and fitted, same with the sweaters. The outerwear is supposed to fit like that..

    as habitant said you should really stay with your true size with veilance!

    habitant are you sure there won't be any veilance at the arc'teryx warehouse sale I've noticed some older but listed as new items appearing on ebay?

    I own it
    Not bad for $100
    I used it when riding my bike in adverse weather
    pretty good jacket overall but only lasted me 1.5 seasons, started falling apart half way through the second winter
    I went slim with it because I own some nice technical baselayers but would probably keep you warm if you layered it.

    posted this in Sale and Nau thread, but thought it should go here, too:

    Nau Friends and Family time. Apparently this year full on sharing is allowed, so no need for PM'ing.

    Code: BDAVIS for 50% off Nau

    Code: sohlson works as well

    It's apparently first intial/last name of all employees.

    (Works for Horny Toad too.)

    With regards to veilance sizing I own various bits and I have a mix of sizes. I have some large for layering under in the winter and some medium for wearing in the Spring/Summer. If you want a close fit I would recommend going a size down as I am a large in most things if you wish for a looser fit to layer under, for example you wish to wear the insulator under the field jacket, or you prefer a baggier fit I would say go for your regular size.

    Thanks! PIcked up an insulated hoodie for running and a down coat for under $350.

    This makes sense, though the fit a size down will be very trim in the shoulders, arm holes and chest.

    not really the veilance line is tailored with a loose fit to accommodate a layer underneath such as a liner/insulator or a chunky knit if you prefer, they are just shells after all to protect against heavy rain and biting cold winds.

    in warmer months wearing a size down is fine as the shell is only going to be worn with a shirt or tee and only used to keep the odd light shower off or/and a cool evening breeze.

    think of it like wearing loose denims in the winter so you can wear a pair of long johns and a slim fit chino for the summer.

    I agree with this. If going for an insulated piece I would go with a medium though. I have the isnulated shell in a medium and that fits me perfect. I also have the Sinter in a medium and again it is a perfect fit but there is no way that I could put more than a normal weight jumper and shirt underneath.

    True, but I found a size down to be tight across the shoulders and through the chest. Great in the arms and total length, though. That's my issue concerning veilance when going tts; they're a bit billowy through the body, but since I enjoy my clothes a bit more relaxed, it's a preferred fit.
