Hi neighbor, How would you compare the ROM and uphill performance to the F1? I love the F1 on the downhill but after spending a lot of the last season in a skimo race boot, the F1 feels very stiff and limiting on the skin track. Cheers,
How does the fit of this jacket compare to a medium Arcteryx Atom jacket or medium Patagonia? I have a large Dynafit Mercury shell that is slightly baggy but it's the regular Dynafit cut versus this which is the athletic cut. Trying to decide between M & L. Thanks!

For me personally, this means I have too much gear, and need to slim down the rack. It did take me a while to figure out how to adjust it to get it tight enough around my waist...
This is my go-to outer layer for day to day touring. I find it very comfortable in a huge range of temps, having worn it everything from spring tours up to 40 degrees down to 5 degrees with a microgrid fleece underneath. I've spilled coffee all over the front and scraped it up on rocks and it still looks good. There is some wear appearing on the lower back area, the highest impact area under a large pack. I'm 6', 180lbs, and got a large. I have a slightly long torso and long arms, and this is a great fit ...
