For a high-tech, high-comfort ski day.
When you have deep pow and face shots lined up in your sights, pull on the Arc'teryx Men's Crossbow Jacket. The weather-whipping trifecta of durable nylon on the outside, Gore-Tex laminate in the middle, and a soft polyester fleece lining keeps you dry and warm whether you're catching a ride to the top or barreling down open bowls. Guaranteed waterproof and guaranteed breathable fabric guarantees you'll have a great time whether you're ripping it in sunshine or having your tracks erased by a blizzard.
Soft and supple, Gore-Tex 3L lo-loft Soft Shell stays silent, even when spoken to. The low-profile fleece backer adds a kiss of warmth when you know you won't be working hard to get the good stuff. On the off chance you boot-pack to a secret stash off the main lift, Gore-Tex tech takes your sweat away without letting cold air chill you out long before apres-ski bevvies. When you're sitting with the lifties to work on your goggle lines, open up the underarm vents for some fresh air.
Hook-and-loop straps are bad on tennis shoes and your pants, but beautiful on your ski jacket. Adjust the cuffs with hook-and-loop closures to fit over or under your paw protection. The helmet-compatible hood adjusts so you can keep a low profile. The powder skirt has the Slide n' Lock attachment, so with the right pant, you may create a singular piece of winter-weather protection. Two pack-friendly pockets adorn the front, just in case you're planning a backcountry ski tour.

Previous version was better.
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: Runs large
These jackets run big. At 5'10" and 165lbs i wear the small. They are cut long in the torso and also have long arms (a bonus I may add for us people with monkey arms)
Arcteryx redisgned the crossbow for F13 and it was a disappointment. The hood now has the collar with a drop hood (attached at the collar). This makes it difficult to wear any mid layer that may have a hood. The new version has a weird cut. Whenever i store gear in the pockets it seems to stick out at the bottom by the seam and looks like Ive got a ponch hanging over my pants. The previous version did not have this lower seam and the pockets were slightly higher (and better for packs). Both versions use the mix of Lo Loft gore tex and Hi loft in specific areas. I would have liked to see an all high loft version as well as use the watertight Vislon front zipper (like the sabre).
For less money you can get the sabre with a better hood, better outer fabric and better hood.
Couldn't get one to fit
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
- Fit: Runs large
I'm 5'9" and 155lbs, the medium was large and baggy, the small was a better fit but arms too long, as in, only my fingertips were sticking out. Unfort had to return them both.
