arcteryx veilance

Recommended Posts

However, as the weather gets more intensely humid, I'm quickly realizing the Align doesn't breath well enough for it to be worn in the next couple of months. Alternatives? Better off with the Isogon?

Actuator is breathing amazingly well and unlike Isogon or Subset it provide full weather protection. Great jacket!

Now just a strange reminder of first reactions at Veilance line release.

It must have been hard for the people who were working on it.

Does anyone have the blazer LT? If so...

How does it fit, and feel? They says its soft, but I need opinions.

Hoping someone can help with sizing - I've got a Composite and a blazer from fall and am a small in both. Looking to add either a Field or Paritition to the wardrobe, but wanting it to be able to go over a suit. Should I size up to a M? Also - would an insulated field jacket be over-the-top warmth with a suit underneath? Anyone with any experience wearing Veilance in this way?

I think you would be ok with your true size in the 2 summer shells (field lt/partition), and likely still a small in the insulated field although fit will feel snugger due to insulation,so you would need to try, I do not think it would be over the top warmth wise to wear over a wool suit in winter,this is what these styles are designed to work with, they offer active warmth rather than extreme warmth like down. this of course is all subject to how cold your winter is etc, personally if I was wearing a suit I would be adding a galvanic instead of insulated field.

If its primarily for running, why go waterproof? I have an alpha sl, but i wouldn't want to run in it. A superlight windshell will be a lot more breathable and will shed light rain.

umm ok, just heading into winter currently and where I live gets a fair bit of pretty solid rain...is there a happy medium? i thought the paclite was meant to be reasonably light and breathable as well as being waterproof?

Paclite is very lightweight, and if you're set on waterproof it's probably your best option. Breathability isn't ideal, though. The incendo above will be much more breathable, but it isn't waterproof.

I felt like I was cast to play in Underworld while wearing the Galvanic. Not a fan of the new cuff aesthetic.

gore tex active shell I think would likely be best to run in, but like others have said there is no real benefit to running in waterproof, you will get soaked in side in sweat so you still not staying dry,and it will help less with body temp, a windshell fabric is much better something that offers some basic weather resistance but the most important quality is to dry fast.

ok you have both convinced me! thanks for the advice.

 

any ideas of the difference between the Incendo Jacket and the Squamish Hoody? or preference or recommendations?

the squamish and incendo are both made of the same material, so performance will be similar. the squamish has a boxy cut intended for layering, no experience with the incendo but considering it's a dedicated running jacket i expect it to be form-fitting. 

 

the squamish looks a lot more neutral though, the incendo isn't very suited for general around town wear.

Pro, performance shells or Pac-lite will not cut it for running.   The only Gore material which will work is Active shell (or FL).  Active shell is about 30% more breathable than pro-shell, plus it's a little lighter and more supple too.  It's a fairly new material but they offer it on the Alpha FL, Techo and one other too I believe.

sizing advice for their jackets (particularly the squamish one)?? I am 6ft and about 70km, normally wear a M-L up the top and around a 30/32 waist

Arc'teryx outdoor runs tts, but jackets cut to accommodate layering can be sized down on. If you are between m and l, get the squamish in m as it's a bit boxy.

Someone on this thread had a video on their blog about how to clean and re proof  your Arcteryx Veilance gore tex jacket. I think it was an official video. Whoever it is could you post the link. Thanks

Well, we know atleast there is going to be gloves. Gotta get those. The patrol coat is super nice, unfortunately im too short to feel comfortable with that length so imma have to skip that. I sort of feel like I should get another align jacket, even though I already have one. I mean, I could lose the one I have. Fuck, that would be horrible. Yeah, especially if we see that blue colorway from a couple seasons back I'll do that.
