Was looking for a waterproof jacket for myself, as my previous one just gave way when it tore/shredded in the washer, guessing it was a bit too old after 7 years of abuse. Was going to get a shell and just do the layer up as needed, but I already have a GEOX shell which is pretty decent but a bit tight fitting.
I kinda wanna try out an Arcteryx and was looking at the Fissile & Macai and both are same price at $900. Funny thing is when using the SUB-Category on arcteryx website, when I clicked hardshell(waterproof) it only shows the Macai, which I found odd since I thought the Fissile was a hardshell as well.
Any major differences between the 2 jackets beside some new tech I should look out for? I'm gonna drop by Atmosphere sometime tomorrow or Wednesday to have a look, and maybe Harry Rosen to look at the Veilance lineup.
