    I also went true to size with the Monitor Down and it fits perfectly. Then again, I'm 6'7", so that's highly specific to me. The coat is crazy warm. And the liner is very, very comfortable. One of my favorite features thus far is the down lining in the hood. Can often avoid wearing a knit cap as it keeps the dome quite cozy.

    Those pants look great, the inseam is impossible for me unfortunately. Anybody considering the Monitor Down, I highly recommend it. Feels like you're wearing a really nice sleeping bag.

    Thanks. I'm tall, so that probably helps. Neither pair is hemmed.

    I agree, doesn't make you look bloated. But I often think most coats look better unzipped.

    First day of cold, rainy weather so I broke out the Monitor down coat. Felt amazing. A great feature is the lining in the hood - up to a certain point makes a beanie unnecessary.

    No doubt - has happened with other down items I own like a comforter. But this was weird - was like a plug of down sticking out of the liner. I walked it over to the store, showed it to them, and they didn't hesitate to make the exchange.

    My local Arc'teryx retailer has Veilance but isn't stocking the Monitor down coat this season, so I had to order it from the website. I'm 6'7" and trim so I went with the L and the fit was great. The XL adds a little length on the body and sleeves and room in the chest, but the shoulders are the same. Tried layering it with a sweater and it's incredibly warm. Unfortunately, there's already down leaking out of the liner so I returned it for a replacement.

    This. The clothes are tacky and ridiculous. Olivier is a genius at branding, which for the people he's targeting, matters more than design skill. This New Yorker article spelled it out.

    How do any of you afford this?

    I'm careful with my money but love a good impulse buy on occasion. My philosophy is based on patience. Do your homework and figure out what you like, then don't settle. Always better to wait than buy something because the money's burning a hole in your pocket.
