Agree with point 1. It really isn't warm at all, and meant to be used on top of another warm layer if you need it. Especially with the pit vents, it won't block wind that well.

It's a bit more complicated than that. This is the SL Hybrid - it has Paclite in the arms etc and a more durable 3-layer fabric in the torso and shoulders in high wear areas. If you check out the blue version, you can see it a bit more clearly where the 3 layer fabric is: .

The SL is the least loose and bulky of the entire line from AR -to SVthelasthunter wrote: ↑ I tried these shells. Feels and sounds like wearing stiff garbage bags on you. Also, unless you're tall and thin you will look absurd wearing this over an Atom or a Cerium, it's just too loose and bulky. If you're not doing downhill sports I would pass. I own five Arc pieces so this isn't some backhanded insult.

Point 2 though, it can definitely be worn everyday. I've had mine for over a year and literally have it in my backpack everyday while travelling and wearing it both winter and summer. No sign of any wear so far.
Also met some folks that have had it for longer and one guy has been biking and hiking around Japan with it, pretty rough with it too and also no issues.

Why pay $300 for something that is supposedly high quality, but yet, cannot be worn everyday? Are there parameters for when one is supposed to be able to wear a shell/jacket - like when conditions are this and not that, or when weather is that and not this? Or is there a limit to how many days in a row you should wear it before giving it minimum x number of days off?

Build Quality and Durability
Arc’teryx was incredibly thoughtful in designing the Beta SL Hybrid. First, the two Gore-Tex fabrics are strategically placed to boost durability in wear-prone areas, with 2-layer Paclite (40 denier) around the body and thicker 3-layer standard Gore-Tex (42 denier) in places more likely to abrade, like under the arms and along the shoulders. As we’ve come to expect from Arc’teryx, all other details are meticulously executed: the seams and taping haven’t peeled, the jacket has shown no signs of fraying or wear, and all zippers still operate smoothly after months of heavy use. And perhaps most notably, the shoulders and back look like new despite being rubbed against a heavy backpack frequently.
