Description

Durability without the tarp effect.

You want a high-performance, durable jacket that'll stand up to years of snow slaying, but you'd also like a jacket that doesn't feel like a crinkly tarp. The Arc'teryx Men's Rush Jacket uses two different Gore-Tex Pro Shell 3L fabrics to provide durability in high-abrasion areas and comfort in lower-wear areas.
  • Gore-Tex Pro Shell three-layer fabric blocks winter wetness and stands up to years of mountain abuse
  • XPD (expedition) cut accommodates multiple layers without restricting movement or feeling uncomfortably baggy
  • Ergonomic 3-Dimensional (e3D) patterning enhances mobility so you can feel completely comfortable while you scope possible lines and then drop in
  • Articulated elbows and no-lift gusseted arms mean you can pole-plant and adjust the hood on the skin track without torso-rise
  • Underarm zips dump excess heat on dawn patrols or during mogul runs
  • Powder skirt and hidden RECCO reflector for inbounds comfort and support
  • Helmet-compatible hood with stealth adjusters
  • Hip length extends coverage

Great shell with solid construction

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've had this product for a year and a half, and it's still rockin'. It's my go-to shell for all snowsports related activity; I have never gotten wet in it (GoreTex!) and the two-tone color looks absolultely rad. I foresee myself using it until it's in shreds.. and then buying another one (if it sells again).

Hi,

Im 5'11, 185 lbs, 42 inch chest with regular length arms.
Only ever wear a couple of thin icebreaker base layers under my shells.
Would I be best with a Medium or a Large??
I used to be 230lbs and my XL Sidewinder from 2007 completly drowns me, to the point of looking stupid.
thanks

A large is sized to a 43" chest, I think that is your best bet.

Bombproof, Waterproof, and Breathable

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

Great shell. Absolutely love it. I wear 42 regular suit (chest 42") neck size 16" and arm length 32"and L fits great. A little long for casual wear on the arms, but fits nice for riding. Will get a little wet when it's raining, but not when it's snowing. Overall great jacket that will last

Does anyone have personal experience with the Rush jacket against the Sidewinder SV jacket? I have the latter and am considering changing to the Rush jacket for its straight zipper and trimmer fit.

Responded on

I wear a medium in the rush and a small in the sidewinder (not the SV model however). I found the fit of the medium sidewinder too boxy even with layers underneath.
As for the zipper,it is certainly not for everyone. I typically prefer front zippers. The one thing I love about the sidewinder over the rush is the chest (napoleon pocket) I find it handy to stash sunglasses or phones. The hand pockets are also a nice feature when using the jacket around town. You cant go wrong with either jacket it just may come down to personal preferences

Which size better for me? X or XL?
I'm 6'4", ~178.57lbs .I regard an arm as if it is the longer one.

Responded on

Your tall and lean so in Most cases Larges are your best fit. An XL will be very big through the chest.
If you prefer a longer shell, look at the sidewinder or Theta jackets are they are cut longer in the torso than the RUSH

Love the 2-tone color palettes

  • Gender: Male

The Rush shell is most impressive. I've seen most of the color combos in person. The 2-tone palettes with bright colors are really attractive. Also think the hood's "stealth adjusters" are a particularly well-done feature (I prefer this treatment over my Arc'teryx Stingray). I'm 6'4", ~190lbs and could go pull off either a Large or XL. The size large would provide the trimmest look but is borderline for long arms.

Arc'teryx Rush Jacket is Super Rad

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This jacket is absolutely badass! The goretex pro-shell on the shoulders and chest is super burly and has helped me avoid snags from many a tree while skiing, while the goretex soft shell on the rest of the jaket is super soft and supple and doesnt make that swishing noise. Overall i am super stoked on this jacket, it is a great ski shell!

Worth It

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I bought this jacket last spring. Its been through everything with me. Powder days in the back country to groomers on opening day. After buying my first shell, I would never go back. It is incredibly versatile jacket. As far as the Arc'teryx Rush jacket goes, I really like the weight of the shell. The material is lightweight and easy to move in. I've worn shells before that were 'too much jacket' I think this shell is a good balance between rugged durability and lightweight maneuverability. I would recommend this jacket to anyone who can afford it. Just as a disclaimer, I am part of a group that tests gear for Gore-Tex.

Bombproof

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Just purchased this jacket after many trips to different stores to try on different shells (seems like every store carries different arcteryx jackets...) and finally went with the Rush. Excellent fitting, plenty of room for a heavy mid layer (atom SV) for those really chilly days. The jacket is long, plenty of cover. The material is nice and burly, dont see anything really messing with it. 3 way adjustable hood is very comfortable with or without a helmet. The powder skirt lacks draw cord adjustment, but fits snuggly against me, no complaints. The build quality is top notch. Was deciding between this or the Theta AR, but i found the Theta to be a little too baggy for the size that fits me, i like a slightly slimmer fitting jacket so i dont look like a puff ball. Overall i am very happy with the jacket, time will tell how it holds up, but i dont foresee any problems.

Responded on

Did you do any comparison shopping between this jacket and the Sidewinder SV? Thoughts?

Would this be a good partner with the Atom...

Posted on

Would this be a good partner with the Atom LT as a mid-layer for those very cold days? I am particularly concerned about bunching up under the arms due to pit zips/vents.

Is this a good jacket for ski-touring?

Responded on

I have the exact same question, I'd think a thermal plus the Atom LT would be warm but I don't have the Rush. The LT is super light and keeps me warm when its pretty chilly out though.

Responded on

wore the Rush last season, rush+atom = super warm (for me). I only wore that combo for the coldest days on the resort (sitting on the lift). I mostly wore the rush + acto. I didn't find either combo bulky, arcteryx lists the acto and the atom as mid layers so they are made to work under the shells.

The Sweet Spot

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Arc'teryx really outdid themselves with the Rush. Even by Arc'teryx standards, this shell is tops. Fabrics, fit, styling and build are all exceptional.

Fabrics: Arc'teryx opted for a heavy duty 480 fabric in the top half of the shell - the areas that are more prone to abrasion if you wear a pack or ski trees. My old jacket's duct taped shoulders is testament to the importance of durable shoulders. The fabric used in the body is a more supple 410 fabric. It gets rid of that annoying crinkling that makes you feel like you're wearing a ground tarp. Others have expressed concern over this fabric's durability, however, after skiing with this jacket for half a season and in the AK backcountry, I can assure anyone that its durability should be of little concern.

Fit: If you're used to Arc'teryx's mountaineering jackets, you're probably used to seeing a boxier cut. For reasons that never made sense to me, the backcountry skiwear industry trended in the baggier direction following suit with parkrat apparel. The cut of the Rush is much better shaped for the average skier. This was a big reason I was drawn to it over other brands and jackets within the Arc'teryx lineup. I'm 5'11" and 165lbs and the medium fits perfectly. No problems fitting a fleece or down jacket underneath while maintaining great mobility.

Styling: A matter of taste, really. But the Rush's styling hits a sweet spot for me balancing rugged with contemporary.

Build: Not much to add here if you're already familiar Arc'teryx's exceptional reputation for build quality.

Hi aarp57823

You say you are " 5'11" and 165lbs and the medium fits perfectly"
Can i ask what chest measurment you are.

Thanks

I am 5'11 and 174 with a 42" chest. I have the Rush in medium and it fits perfect! The sleeves are longer that what you would expect on a medium. Awesome jacket!

Take a serious look at the Alpha SV

Great jacket, but there are a couple reasons to seriously consider switching to the Alpha SV, as I did. The main reason being the increased durability of the Alpha while weighing less. The pocket location on the Alpha is more suited to wearing a pack or accessing in general, never needed the "hand warmer" pockets of the rush. Also the powder skirt is not necessary for me as I usually wear a 1/2 bib, if I really need to keep it out the Alpha has a hem cinch and a waist cinch. The stash pocket for goggles was nice when walking from the car but anything more than that and I put them in my pack or in my thigh pocket anyway since that location is a bit awkward. Also the Alpha SV allows a little more more head movement when wearing a helmet and everything is cinched tight.

Quality but Pricey

I bought this for the recco reflector, which is in the top left arm pocket (in case you wondered), plus the powder skirt, which few shells come with. Its top quality - without question - and can be felt in the combo of fabrics they use in this jacket. Its my first Arc jacket, when compared to TNF, Stoic, Spyder or alternatives, I think the Stoic out rates it on features for half the cost!...

Write your question here...I would like to get the Arcteryx Rush Jacket. I am 5'8'' and weigh 170 lb. Would I be a small or a medium?

Responded on

I would get the medium. The small is for small people. I am 6'2" and 165 and wear the large, mostly for the longer length in the arms and body.

Well designed ski shell

This jacket has all the Arc features of the white line that make it a well thought out ski shell. The goggle pocket, large side pockets and storm hood all set it up for a well appointed shell to hold your stuff. My only complaint is the cut of e sizing... I have worn a lot of Arc shells and this is very trim fitting, not to the point of being too tight to zip up, but I'm between a large and extra large and am leaning towards xl on this model. I normally comfortably fit in a large in their shells, at 6' 3" 188 lbs... It's just misrepresented as being loose fitting, in my opinion it's the grimmest fitting Arc shell I have tried on. One other thing of note is the two textures of Pro Shell... The 480 is in the high wear areas, and the 410 is in the majority. The 410 is incredibly supple compared to the 480, which really has to be felt to understand. It's arguably a nicer wearing denier than 480's crunchiness but I perceive it as less durable feeling too.

It's a nice and very fine jacket.

Perfect 3 in 1 combination with a fleece jacket as mid layer.

Which size do you recommend? I'm 6'2'' and 175, and my Stinger is M, and fits perfect (not too baggy, still room for several layers). But should I consider L, if the trim is slimmer than in Stinger?

Best Answer Responded on

The Rush is "expedition fit" so it won't be too slim. Stick with the medium.

Favorite hardshell

I own a few other Arcteryx hard shells. And out of the ones I own this one is my favorite.
"What makes this one better?" you might say. Here are the reasons;
1. Improved fit. While I still really love the other Arc shells, this years version has a different fit. It seems more form fitting and less boxy, while still allowing room underneath to add layers. I am 5 foot 10 inches, weight 235 pounds and have a 48 inch chest, and the xl fits perfect. However, if you plan to be wearing a large down or synthetic jacket underneath, you may want to go up a size.
2.The fabrics and colors are awesome. I bought the sultan's palace and the color scheme makes the jacket look absolutely great. Also, this jacket has two different fabric types, 480 NR and 410 NR(I don't know what exactly NR means). The 480 is what most of the other extreme weather Arc jackets are made from. The 410 fabric is one they don't use very much, but I absolutely love it. It feels very smooth, and is less crinkly, it almost is like a softshell fabric, I hope Arcteryx uses that fabric more in their shells.
3. I really like the feature set as well. It has a great powder skirt, hood, pockets, internal recco reflector, the whole nine yards.
4. The quality is outstanding. If your thinking about buying an Arcteryx shell, look on the inside of the jacket at the seams and the taping. It looks absolutely flawless, and attests to the quality Arcteryx puts into every one of their jackets.
If your in the market for a new shell this year, consider giving the Rush jacket a try, you'll love it.
