Arc'teryx jacket question - Page 2

polar proof is not really for windstopper, you want http://www.nikwax.com/en-us/products/productdetail.php?productid=251&activityid=-1&itemid=-1&fabricid=-1   

Also, you can reference the best product for each fabric.

Great stuff, works well, I use their cleaner.

Hi,

 

Can't find the Sidewinder AR jacket in Australia so was considering buying online, but am a little confused about sizing. I am a male  5' 6" tall, weighing 67kg (148 lbs). My chest is 38", waist 33" and sleeve is 29" (these taken as per Arcteryx site). According to the site this would put me somewhere between small and medium. With layering should I consider the medium or would small be good.

 

Thanks for any help.

Get the medium. I'm your exact height but a touch heavier and it's perfect. Think a small would be too small.

OK, thanks Kid Eh.

Jeff, If you haven't purchased that jacket yet you may want to look at the Spector IS by Westcomb Outerwear. It's a cool jacket that uses eVent to keep you dry and primaloft to keep you warm.

Westcomb is made entirely in Canada.

This is from the Gortex site for care of Gortex outer wear.

 

 

icon_wash_wash.gif WASH
Machine-wash warm (104° F/40° C). Powder or liquid detergent. No fabric softener. Follow manufacturer's instructions.
icon_wash_dry_clean.gif DRY CLEAN
If professionally dry-cleaned, request clear distilled solvent rinse and spray repellent. Follow manufacturer's instructions.
icon_wash_iron.gif IRON
Steam-iron warm, placing a towel or cloth between the garment and the iron. No need to iron the garment until it is completely dry.
icon_wash_bleach.gif BLEACH
No chlorine bleach. It may damage your garment.
icon_wash_dry.gif DRY
Tumble-dry warm. The heat from the dryer will help to reactivate the durable water repellent (DWR) treatment on your garment's outer fabric.
icon_wash_water_repellent.gif WATER REPELLENT TREATMENT
Gore recommends applying a topical water repellency restorative (DWR treatment) for outdoor fabrics, available at your local outdoor retailer. We do not recommend wash-in treatments as they can affect the garment's breathability.
icon_stain_removal.gif STAIN REMOVAL
Use a pre-wash treatment such as Shout® or Spray 'n Wash®, following its manufacturer's instructions. Rinse well.
