Arc’teryx Cold WX LEAF Quick Review

 

Non-ordinary Insulated Jacket. This jacket provides a better insulation than any other jacket can offer from my opinion. I owned Arc’teryx Alpha LT. It is really light and it’s good for cold weather like in California. The regular Arc’teryx Alpha LT is able to absorb cold weather from 60-50f. But it is a different story with Arc’teryx LEAF Cold WX Jacket. The jacket can absorb cold weather below 50f just fine.

 

2nd of all the jacket provides patches panel on left and right sleeve. I’m considering myself a patches collector and this is a plus point for Arc’teryx jacket to provide an insulated jacket with the patch panel on left and right of the sleeve. And one last thing why I chose this model, is because on the front of the jacket it still showing the Arc’teryx letter with the logo its own. I feel that one day that Arc’teryx will shift their idea to not having the Arc’teryx letter on the front of the jacket anymore and instead of a letter it will be replaced with its own Arc’teryx logo only. So might as well to have this model from now on or extra unit to put into a collection.

 

If you ask how warm this jacket can be? oh it is warm and can be really warm. It’s puffy, and when you wear it the jacket is ready to warm your body from the cold weather.

So I’m happy with this jacket and I’m going to use for cold weather purpose and it will be my next to go traveling jacket for cold weather destination.

I will provide more pictures below. Enjoy !!

Presidents Day 2015

This is the first trip that I’ve had for a long time. Me and my friends, we stayed at the mammoth lake cabin. It has a tremendous view, and a great hospitality from the place where we stayed. Met nice people, and overall it was a pretty good horizon and vibe. Worth of shot if you’re thinking about a getaway from Los Angeles. We stayed there for 3 nights and me personally, it was the best time that I’ve had since a year ago. Although it was a long weekend, I had a wonderful valentines day with a beautiful girl that I’ve met earlier.

the good part about this trip, that I’m able to carry my pack during the traveling. It wasn’t too shabby at all. I had this pack for 2 weeks already and it brings me joy for me since I only carried one pack for this trip, I’m able to make it out of the most. The pack itself was designed by Mystery Ranch. Been using their pack for over 4 Years, and all their packs work like a charm for 1 day trip, 3 days trip, and for urban purpose which it can be use inside the city.

– Mystery Ranch 3DAP Coyote Brown
– Shemagh
– Arc’teryx Caliber Fleece

All of them enough to keep my travelling become fun. Well I did the the eastern face wrap, and I know it’s not perfect the way I did but I like the shemagh color that I got from my friend.
