A cold day at the resort is just another day in paradise.
Strong gusts of stormy winds blow snow all over the ski resort, but you couldn't care less since you have the Arc'teryx Men's Fission AR Insulated Jacket wrapped across your body. Falling temps are no longer an issue with 100g Coreloft insulation warming you up, and a Gore-Tex 2-layer membrane with fully taped seams wraps up that insulation with guaranteed waterproof and breathable protection that keeps you dry and comfortable while you shred those snowy slopes. Plus, Arc'teryx reinforced the shoulders, elbows, hood, collar, and other areas of high use with Gore-Tex Pro 3-layer fabric for long lasting durability.
An athletic fit pulls the Fission AR close to your body without restricting your mobility on the mountain, and articulated elbows enhance your freedom of movement. The laminated brim on the hood helps keep wetness off your face, and you can roll the Stow Hood in its collar when the sun pokes out. WaterTight external zippers increase this jacket's waterproof protection in ways that most jackets don't. Laminated hook-and-loop cuffs seal out those blustery blizzards, and the drop-back hem adds more coverage across your backside even when you bend over to strap on your bindings.

Arc'teryx makes superb jackets the fit and finish is what you expect of a product in this price range. Tight stitching great technical fabrics and a well thought out design. It was light and seemed to be warm with great mobility one comes to expect from Arc'teryx. I never got a chance to were it outside. I opened the package from Backcountry and tried it on. Immediately I was unhappy with the stow away collar which seems like a NASCAR Hans Device. I packed it up and shipped it back to Backcountry so as not to jeopardize my return. I ended up purchasing The Arc'teryx Fission SV Insulated Jacket, now that is a great product. Warm and comfortable with traditional styling and technical fabrics. The Fission SV withstood temperatures in the -10F range with just a a t-shirt for 5 minutes without the feeling of cold. I tested it with a fleece base layer and discovered I could go for 10 minutes in -10F windy, 20 mph weather with not a concern. I would think this Jacket the Fission AR would preform similarly but possibly just not as robust a shell as the Fission SV. If traditional looks and neck bulk are a concern I recommend spending the extra money on the Fission SV if one can afford to.
