    Durability without the tarp effect.

    When you're part of a big family, everyone knows the first kid is the experiment, the middle child blends into the background, and the baby of the family is spoiled beyond belief. As the third child in the Arc'teryx Whiteline jacket family, the Men's Rush Jacket is a sweet little combo of utter toughness and luxurious comfort in a guaranteed waterproof, guaranteed breathable hardshell. Whether you're commuting in Chicago or ripping through the snow in Colorado, you'll be in no hurry to get inside when you have this storm-busting jacket.

    By using two different densities of Gore-Tex Pro fabric, the Rush jacket provides durable weather protection in a comfortable, flexible shell. Sure, it'd be cheaper to buy a blue tarp from the hardware store, but how well can you layer under that flapping plastic, let alone creep quietly through freshly fallen snow? In addition to being soft and quiet, Gore-Tex Pro is designed for bouts of intense activity with plenty of rest in between. When you're skinning up a steep section, the fabric breathes so you don't drown in a puddle of your own sweat. If you're stopping for lunch, photo ops, or a quick potty break, Gore-Tex Pro won't leave you a cold, shivering mess.

    The expedition fit and e3D patterning leaves loads of room for layers to optimize your experience. A silkweight shirt might suffice for spring corn, while you'll need a few tiers of thermal layers for a backcountry adventure in the high Rockies come February. The helmet-compatible hood rotates with your head to avoid blind spots. The powder skirt features the Slide n' Loc attachment so you can create an Arc'teryx snow suit for full-bodied weatherproofing.

    Simply Awesome

    First, the color description, Noche, seems like the creative folks at Arc'teryx were running running short or ideas. Let's call it Midnight Gemstone which is more suggestive the very cool deep purple hues of the Rush jacket. Performance? Where to start. First day with this jacket brought howling winds at 60+ mph, driving wet snow, and a dampness that finds its way to your inner core. The Rush did not disappoint. No wind, no dampness, and the integrated hood over my helmet was indispensable for a big weather day. Layer this baby with an Arc'teryx RHO base and you become totally impervious to the elements. The vents let you stay warm on the lift and dissipate heat at the bottom of the mogul run. Spendy? Yup, but worth every penny. I wear a medium in this jacket. Normally I'm a large, but the jacket seems to have more of an athletic fit which works for me. Broad in the shoulders, narrow at the waist.

    I'm from a beach town and I recently moved to Denver. There I've been advised to change my mind about insulation and that I won't regret it. I got this jacket after decades using an insulated jacket. I don't regret any penny I invested. You can use this to ski or to hike, you decide what to put underneath based on the weather, very convenient.

    Sweet Jacket

    My jacket unfortunately exploded at the beginning of this season leading me to get this. Super impressed with it so far. For a shell it is both lightweight, warm and breathable.

    The material also seems to be burly enough to hold up to more than one season of abuse.

    The fit I found to be true to size but it is definitely more of a trim athletic fit. Still room for layering but not a baggy fit by any means.

    Broad shoulders? pass on this

    • Size Bought: xxl

    I've been looking for an Arc'teryx jacket for a long time, mostly because most of them aren't large and long enough (I'm close to 6'5"). This jacket has great features, and looks well built, and I wanted to love it. Unfortunately, I couldn't. there's more than enough room in the body of the jacket, but the issue is the shoulders and the back (up-high, around the lat area). It's simply not large enough for someone with a wide back. Additionally, my broad shoulders and long arms were too much for this coat, even with just a t-shirt on. If it fits you, rock it. Good luck!
    my measurements, if it helps:
    6'5" tall
    52 inch chest
    39 inch sleeve
    36-38 waist
    22-24 inches across the shoulders (swimmer)

    • Size Bought: Small

    Super lightweight and durable. You'll need to take it off for the skin track but is burly enough to handle resorts. I've had my fair share of tree branches and rocks and the 40 denier areas of the jacket haven't ripped once. If you're primarily looking for a resort-based jacket, the tantalus is definitely worth a look. A little heavier due to higher denier fabric and more robust features but durability will be slightly better.


    Bombproof Protection

    • Size Bought: Medium

    This is my 2nd season with the Rush and it absolutely crushes both in the resort and heading up the skin track. It's tough where it needs to be and more breathable everywhere else. The Expedition Fit is perfect for varying layers without being bulky(more roomy than the athletic fit but more tailored than the relaxed). This jacket really shines in the small details - it's articulated perfectly for complete freedom of movement, the zippers work smoothly and easily(seriously, this is something I think really sets Arc'teryx apart), the two main pockets are perfectly placed for use with a pack, the hood cinches and adjusts w/ease, and the two-toned color pattern looks great. If you play hard and like to stay dry and protected, this is the jacket to get.

    Bombproof Protection

    Bombproof Shell!

    • Familiarity:I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit:True to size
    • Size Bought: Large

    I got this shell for my husband as a Christmas/Birthday gift. He absolutely loves it. He even wears it out when its snowing or raining, not just on the slopes!
    It is a great shell, keeps him dry and is very breathable.

    He goes touring more than anyone I know and he loves this shell for his touring days. It is so easy to move in, easy to stash while hiking if he gets too hot, and best of all, the pockets are big enough to carry his skins when he gets to the top!

    The colors on this jacket are amazing, I love the two tones! As for fit, we found it ran true to size, but is a little more relaxed. He is 5'9, 180 and wears a size Large in this with room to layer still.

    Go To Shell!!!

    Let me start by stating that 2016 will mark my 50th year year of alpine and back country skiing in Colorado and abroad. I have also worked and played hard the last 50+ years in every type of weather imaginable wearing every type of of clothing known to man and with that said, I can honestly say that The Arcteryx Rush is the absolute best jacket I have ever owned. All the positives listed in other reviews are substantiated and accounted for in my experience with the Rush to date. I cant find a negative thing about this jacket for any of my intended purposes for it. Light, windproof, waterproof and breathable are understatements. I can truly say this is my new, and only High Country 4 season jacket/shell. I was so initially impressed by the craftsmanship, quality and performance that I donated or gave all my other jackets away.

    This is the best fitting ArcTeryx jacket for me...slim but not too slim, does not have the fleece-y lining which sticks to other layers...only issue is the colors. Noche looked dark blue to me on the website, but it is bright purple! Order if you want to be Barney floating down the mountain

    Ultimate Winter Shell

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

    I've got a few Arc'teryx pieces and this is my favorite. Typical of all other Arc'teryx products, the craftsmanship is impeccable. Top quality and fine attention to detail.

    This shell is great as a ski shell because it is cut a bit roomier than the most fitted Arc'teryx jackets, which means you can layer properly underneath it. If you need to put a down jacket on for the coldest days, you don't feel constricted by a restricting cut.

    The simple design is well thought out with big pockets situated in the right places for ease of use. Gore Tex Pro sheds even the harshest weather - I've never been damp or wet with this jacket.

    Even though the Pro Shell is so tough, the Rush is a remarkable lightweight jacket. Even though it marketed as a winter piece, it could easily be worn as a 3 season jacket for rain, sleet, snow, you name it.

    I'm 5'11 and a pretty slender 150lbs and a medium fits me great!

    sweet shell

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit:Runs large
    • Size Bought: Large

    I have had this jacket for two winters and its my go to jacket for all winter adventures. I probably have close to 100 days on it now and use it for BC and resort skiing. I have had in all weather conditions from negative temps up to spring conditions. Does everything you want to it do Breathes well, stays dry, ligheweight, comfortable, and packs pretty well. The pockets sit high enough that the hip belt on your pack doesnt block access and its really durable ive caught it a few times on branches and thought for sure i would rip the sleep but i comes out looking great. length is great to keep skin from being exposed.

    I bought a large im 5'11 170 lb. It runs a little big and i probably would have been better with a medium. But i got a really good end of season deal. The sleeves are long which is a benefit to keep skin covered if you are stretching or reaching for something. I pay to have the sleeve shortened a little bit. If i bought the medium probably wouldnt have been an issue.

    I bought this jacket last year after considering a few other models from a few other companies. I think what did it for me was the brand's stellar reputation, the design of the jacket, and the reviews.

    Arc'Teryx is a great company, and they're constantly churning out great gear. My other two pieces of 'Teryx gear are the Atom AR and the Fission SV. The Atom is by far my favorite down jacket, and the Fission is the ONLY jacket I have (and need) for -40˚F/C weather. So the point here is, Arc'Teryx knows what they're doing: they make great outdoor gear that lasts.

    So what about this jacket? I've used this jacket in everything from a walk in light rain on 60˚F day, to snowboarding on a -20˚F day (+ wind chill). It it perfectly windproof, it breathes very well, and it's perfectly water proof. Moreover, for being an alpinism-grade shell, it's very lightweight.

    I'll share one quick story to convince you that this is the right shell for you, no matter your needs. After backpacking for about three days and ~50 miles in Norway's Jotunheimen National Park, I'd finally made it to the base of the mountain I was going to climb (Falketind). It was pouring buckets of rain, and even though the last approach had only been a couple hours of hiking, I'd been walking through it the entire time. I pitched my tarp, I crawled under it, and to my utter amazement, I was BONE dry. Now here's the good part: because it was so windy, I hadn't had much time to make my shelter wind-proof. So, after crawling in my bivy and realizing I was sleeping in a wind-tunnel, I took this jacket and hung it across the entrance. Not only did it keep out the wind (and rain) the entire night, but the next morning when I was packing up camp, it was dry within 15 minutes of wearing it. I don't know about you, but that's the kind of protection I expect. While the price may be high, this jacket still looks brand new after the months of abuse I've put it through.


    Great Piece

    Fits well although sleeves are a little long (better long than short, and my ape index is negative). Nice fit in core. Excellent jacket, decided on this guy over Patagonia Super Alpine.


      Was looking for a new she'll but there were a lot of options and considerations (use). Was really wanting to upgrade so spent time browsing and asking questions... Talked with Emily at BC, super knowledgable and was able to help me pick out the right she'll for my needs! Thanks!!!

      Awesome Jacket

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

      I bought this as my primary ski jacket. I ski both in the East and West and have used the jacket in temps from -10F. This is the best ski jacket I've ever had. It is completely weather proof, sized perfectly for layering , has sufficient pockets and vents well. Also, the Gore-Tex material is great and has absorbed several hard tree limb hits without a mark. While expensive, this jacket lives up to the price.

      Awesome Jacket

      I'm 6'1'' and wondering if anybody decided to go with the XL over the L fit w/ the Rush. I really like how the L relaxed fitted Arc'teryx jackets fit me & am unsure if the sizes correlate w/ one another, or if in the expedition fit I would be sacrificing some of the rear hem and/or sleeve length.

      I'm 6'5", 205lbs and purchased the L. While it fits and I was able to put an 800 fill down under it, I'm going to take it back for the XL in order to get a little extra sleeve length and freedom in the chest/back. I was pretty torn so I think you'll be happy with the Large

      Im looking to purchase this jacket. I am 5'7 and 145lbs with a 40 inch chest. What size should I get? This would by my primary ski jacket so I would layer accordingly under.

      Hey Alex,

      Based on your sizing I would recommend you go with a Medium just for the extra chest space. Small will probably fit you everywhere else except the chest. Looks like you already placed the order but let me know how it goes! Feel free to contact me directly with any additional questions on anything Arc'teryx.

      Kyle L. - Expert Gearhead

      5'10" / 180-185. What size do you recommend? I don't like baggy but like to wear a vest under.

      Fit is really good on this jacket, read my comments below on my fit. I went with Medium and am 5'-9", 160 - 165. Honestly, medium or large would probably both fit fine, but depends how much of the year you want to wear this... just winter... or spring, winter and fall. If all 3 seasons, I would go medium... Vest would prob still fit, but would also not be overly baggy in other two seasons. I can wear a t-shirt under my medium and as long as I sinch the cuffs tight around my bare wrist, I would never notice it could still fit my Mec tremblant puffy beneath it.

      Hey folks,

      I'm deciding between the Rush and the Sabre. Mainly for winter weather skiiing and also as a dual purpose outer shell for the winter months due to the cost of the shell.

      I was definitely leaning towards the Rush... However was stuck on sizing as I don't own any other Arc'teryx shells. I am 5'-9", approx 160lbs (give or take 5bs on the time of year), 39" chest, 32" waist and fairly athletic build. However I also wanted to be able to layer my Mec Tremblant mid down layer underneath the shell for when the temp really drops and the winds pick up for casual winter wear (temps generally run coldest - 30C without wind chill here).

      I was thinking medium, but can't be sure. Anyone have any words of advice here? They would be much appreciated!!

      Also, my arm length is approx 23 - 24" for what it is worth.

      Thanks again.

      I own the rush, and I absolutely love it. I use it spring backpacking when i experience mixed conditions, and it keeps me dry no matter what get's thrown at me. And it does a great job keeping me dry skiing, and breathing so my layered jacket doesn't get wet. I am 6'2" and wear a Large, so i would recommend a medium for sure as this jacket fits a little on the large size! It's a great jacket and worth every dime! You'll love it!

      Hey guys,

      Reporting back on my purchase. As mentioned above... 5'-9" tall, 160-ish lbs... 39" chest.. 32" waist.. Bought the medium, and I am very impressed with the fit. I plan to wear this shell as a multi purpose, 3 season shell (fall, winter, spring).. And In this case I wanted it to fit with just a 260 wool layer beneath and also be able to wear it with my Mec Tremblant down puffy underneath it + more layers if in extremely cold conditions... amazingly both fit well. The body/sleeve cut of this jacket is honestly unbelieveable. The only con to this jacket is the length of the sleeves, which are quite long, however the velcro cuffs are positioned great to tighten around large gloves or bare wrists alike. So that remedies the long sleeve issue.

      The Rush is lightweight and the snowskirt is not noticable at all when not being used. I would recommend this shell to anyone. This is my first Arc'Teryx piece, but it definitely won't be my last.

      Very impressed.

      What midlayer would be great for this...

      What midlayer would be great for this jacket for a something like 20F - 0F or even colder?

      Best Answer

      Something like a patagonia R2 or maybe a nano puff would probably be a good choice. If you tend to be a cold person, and it's going to be more around the zero mark then a puffier jacket like the Arc'teryx LT Atom or a Down jacket like the patagonia down sweater might be better choice. It really varies though as to what works best for you, if you prefer fleece, synthetic, or down insulation, how thick your base layer is, and many other factors. Best of luck!

      All of the Arc'teryx pieces are designed to work as a system. They layer well together and most importantly they move incredibly well together. No bunching or binding when you're rolling the windows down over that 60 footer.

      Cerium LT Hoody as a mid layer.

      RHO AR, RHO LT or Phase SV as a base layer. The RHO series is designed as more of an insulating piece while the Phase base layers are designed for moisture management. Depends on your work/rest cycles and how cold you get.

      Send it!

      Does this jacket have a temperature...

      Does this jacket have a temperature rating?

      Best Answer

      Most jackets do not come with temperature ratings and the Arc'Teryx Rush Jacket is no exception, especially since this jacket has no insulation material. The Rush can be used for a variety of activities but was designed primarily as a ski shell. Its job is to repel the nastiest weather you can get yourself into, while your job is to put some nice cozy baselayers and midlayers under it that will keep you toasty warm.

      So no temp rating here, but with the protection afforded by the Rush's Gore-Tex Pro shell, and the right underlayers, there really are no limits.

      Can I take this jacket to Alaska

      Can I take this jacket to Alaska


      I can totally understand why you would ask that question. With a jacket this bombproof, the State of Alaska could see you as a serious threat to the sanctity of their powder covered mountains.

      The Arc'teryx Rush Jacket comes with 40D nylon ripstop in the body and sleeve, and 80D nylon plain weave in the shoulder, elbows, and hood. Combine that with a Gore-Tex Pro waterproof membrane and buddy... you can take this sucker anywhere.
