Relaxed, technical, and complete with luxury upgrades.
Arc'teryx created the Men's Keibo Jacket for skiers and snowboarders who appreciate performance outerwear but who want a piece with more subtle technical detailing and a relaxed style. High-end waterproof breathable Gore-Tex Pro 3L shell delivers the most capable weather protection on the market while CoreLoft and PrimaLoft insulation fights off the nastiest, most brutally cold temperatures. A further array of luxury and comfort features is all integrated cleverly so get what you need without looking overly teched. This is a jacket for the deep powder crowd, big-mountain athletes, and winter addicts who identify more with an adrenaline rush than with a measure of the performance of their blood-oxygen level.
- N70p-X is a polyester face fabric with an exceptional durability-to-weight ratio
- Gore-Tex Pro waterproof breathable fabric uses three-layer construction to block even the nastiest winter storms while still allowing sweaty moisture to pass through from the inside out
- Gore-Tex Pro 3L shell is highly durable so you can drag this jacket through rough terrain without worry
- Laminated seam construction eliminates stitched seams (stitched seams would require additional seam taping and would lower overall fabric breathability)
- Coreloft synthetic insulation is lightweight and low profile, and the insulation compresses and regains its loft quickly so you won't have to worry about cold spots after tightly packing this jacket
- PrimaLoft synthetic insulation in the collar provides warmth right where you need it the most in cold, windy conditions
- Relaxed fit provides a more laid-back style, more room to move underneath, and plenty of room for layering, all without going too baggy
- Hip length covers up your waistline and stretches below the point where a pack hip-belt or climbing harness would sit
- Underarm zips provide ample venting so you can let cool air in and have Powder Guard mesh to keep snow out
- Storm Hood is large enough to pull over your ski helmet or climbing helmet for additional protection from the elements
- Stretch powder skirt seals securely and comfortably around your waist inside the shell so deep snow won't creep up inside your jacket
- Slide 'n Loc snap system secures the powder skirt to the waist of compatible Arc'teryx pants to create a closed jacket-to-pant system that locks out the elements
- Recco reflector helps Recco-equipped rescue crews locate you beneath avy debris

Is this jacket coming back for 2013-14? If so when will you start seeing them. Also, what colors will it come in? Thanks!
We should start getting them in late summer or early fall. I think they will come in Utility Green, Carbon Copy, and Blue Python.
Utility green and black (not carbon copy) are the other colors as stated
Great jacket for resort skiing/riding
I have really enjoyed the Keibo Jacket this season. I have a tendency to get too hot inside an insulated jacket, even on colder days, and I was initially concerned that I would be constantly overheating in the Keibo but that hasn't been the case. I have typically been riding with either a think or thin base layer (rather than multiple layers) based on the temperature/forecast and it has worked out very well?and its nice to have less body bulk from multiple base/insulation layers required with a standard shell jacket.
While not necessarily considered steezy, the jacket styling is longer and a little baggier than the typical Arcteryx cut. Certainly a personal preference thing, but I like it for riding the resorts. This is not my ideal jacket for backcountry trips, the same things that make it a good resort jacket work against it in the BC, too bulky, too baggy, and too long cut.
It was perfect for riding 10 days of knee to waist deep powder in Japan, when going backcountry for stashes would have been insane given that you had 25+ inches waiting for you on the lift served terrain ...
5 stars for a great purpose built jacket from Arcteryx.

How is this jacket compared to the Modon...
How is this jacket compared to the Modon jacket? If you had to choose between the 2, which jacket would you choose for warmth and comfort?
Update: picked up the Keibo jacket and I ahave to say it is way awsome. Keeps me warm withoput the added bulk. I lve the waterpoofing that it has. I placed the jacket arm under a running facet and was impresssed on how dry it felt after i removed it. Water just beads off it leaving the material bone dry.
Update: Got this jacket and I must say its is absolutely perfect! Best jacket ever made great going Arc'teryx!

- Familiarity: I've used it several times
This jacket is amazing. It kept me warm while I was waiting for friends at the bottom of the slopes. The fleece pockets came in handy when I was going around town without my gloves on. The new material around the neck is noticeably more comfortable than other arcteryx jackets. While it's designed for snow sports with the powder skirt and oversized interrior pockets, I found myself wanting to wear it around town or even on mildly chilly nights .
How does this jacket compare to the Micon...
How does this jacket compare to the Micon Jacket. Looks a little more stylish and relaxed fit.
Different insulation stories. The Micon has 100 grams of Coreloft insulation. The Keibo has 80 grams of Coreloft Compact insulation. Both jackets are based on our relaxed fit block and are hip length, the Micon is warmer.
