Description

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.

It was cold and snowy with winds gusting at 60mph on the ridge line as we tried to beat the snow and get one more Wasatch Crest lap in this season. The Rush, with the hood easily going over a helmet, killed it.

Great backcountry jacket!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

I have owned many gore-tex jackets and this is by far the best. I is light weight, packs well, and breaths well enough now I can leave it on when splitboard touring . The pockets in the front are nice because you can access them when you are strapped into a pack. Also they are big enough to fit climbing skins in ( one in each pocket.) it's the perfect NW jacket for me.

Bomb-proof

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

Was not too cold in the frigid wind, not to hot in the Alta April sun, not wet in the blizzard. The small fit me perfectly -- I'm 5'9" 155lb and small tends to be best fit in Arcteryx products. Plenty of room for layers.

Awesome Jacket

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

This jacket is the perfect ski shell. And the perfect rain shell.

Another reviewer said it doesn't work well with a pack for access to the pockets....I could not DISAGREE more. They are in the perfect location. I looked long and hard for the one jacket to replace them all. And I have found it.

I promise this piece will not let you down.

Almost perfect!

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

This is a great jacket! The mix 80D/40D gives you durability and save some weight without compromising features!

I'm 5'5" / 147 and the small fits great! I agree with some of the reviews that say the jacket is a little on the short length side, but that's where the powder skirt is going to help you and the slide&lock feature works great to attach to your pants if you don't like to wear bibs, it provides enough room for layering and and I can move without any restriction! The quality and detail in this piece is outstanding, the blue nile color is pretty much like shown in the picture.

Pockets: the two hand warmer pockets are a little higher than normal, but not totally pack friendly, they can work with a pack, but are not the easiest ones to use with a pack, the internal stash pockets is handy and the zippered internal pocket is a nice addition for some snacks or wallet, no media pocket but I prefer to put iPod on my mid layer to keep it warm and save battery. I wish there was a big chest pocket, something like the one on the Theta SVX, maybe not necessary to be too big, but a chest pocket would be a nice improvement!

The hood is big and easy to go over my medium smith helmet, the collar is high but not the most spacious. Sometimes I wish there was a little more space in the collar area since it can get a little tight sometimes, but not to the point to bother me.

This is a great jacket, light, generous fit for layers, nice helmet compatible hood and I believe it's the least expensive Goretex Pro Shell from Arcteryx, what else can we ask for? Humm, maybe a chest pocket!

Gonna last for a long time

Gonna last for a long time

This is the type of jacket you buy once, and probably don't replace unless you are a guide. I'm sure I'll keep this thing around for a long while.

I am 6'2 and about 210lbs. I went with a large fit, and as you can see, its definitely form fitting. I probably could have gotten away with an XL, and they would have been a little long in the sleeve.

Great jacket (but is that a surprise?)

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift
  • Fit: True to size

In a word, awesome. HUGE hood for a helmet. High chin area to keep Jack Frost at bay. Great fit (true to size). Awesome velcro at the wrists, super deep inside stow pocket. Sleeve pocket is usable for a pass/wallet, etc. Spendy but worth the scrillas.

Bomb proof jacket - FITS TRUE!

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

This piece is crazy tough. The two different fabrics give a tremendous amount of confidence in this jacket's longevity; however, neither is anything remotely "quiet". It may be as tough as Tyvek, but is sounds like it, so go figure! taking a star away because of the loudness...

Also, there seems to be a lot of room for fit interpretation. The arcteryx video shows a guy who's close to my dimensions with a medium on. I'm 6' 180# and found the medium to be a titch short in the sleeves, and tight under the arms... and I'm not big-arm guy.

My instincts wanted to order a large, but I fought them and got the medium... big mistake. backcountry.com came through with a great exchange experience!

What midlayer would be great for this...

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

Responded on

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!

Responded on

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!

amazing jacket

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

I tried 7 jackets (from Patagonia, Arcteryx, Lofoten)before choosing the Rush and I'm very happy. I was looking for a jacket that works for resort and backcountry skiing, and the occasional rock scramble while carrying a pack and skis and the Rush totally fits the bill. It fits great without any extra bulk, the arms have full ROM, the storm hood is easy to use and fits over any helmet, the powderskirt is bomb-proof and the bottom opening is wide enough so there's no restriction of leg movement. The material is very durable so far, and the internal and external pockets and venting are quick to use and perfectly placed. The jacket fits great with a backpack too.

I tried the Patagonia Primo and didn't like the fit - tons of material around the torso, and the same for the Arcteryx caden, sidewinder and sidewinder SV - too bulky. For sizing I'm 5'11 175 lbs with big thighs and the Medium fits great. I've worn this jacket in whiteout conditions above treeline and hiking ridges on sunny days dripping sweat and the jacket does wonders for blocking wind and moisture control - a huge plus if you sweat a lot.

Does this jacket have a temperature...

Does this jacket have a temperature rating?

Best Answer Responded on

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

Hey Carter,
This jacket would be a solid choice for AK weather- just hanging out, or out shredding. The Gore will keep you dry and won't create a swampy feeling by letting it breathe as well. Definitely an all around solid jacket!

Responded on

carter,
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.

This is my second Rush jacket

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

I had last years version and liked the color scheme of this years some ordered it. The jacket is much better in terms of material in the shoulder and hood. It also seems to breath a little bit better.. I recently wore it for 2 days at Alta and found it was great at insulating and breathability. I found that by putting the hood up on the Collins lift provided a great amount of warmth over just having my helmet on. The fit is perfect! I'm 5'10 185 and have a 40inch chest.. The medium fit better than any other jacket I've tried. Not cheap but worth it if you appreciate the details and are looking for a durable breathable waterproof shell.

Awesome

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

This is a great jacket. I really liked the styling and was impressed with the quality of the shell. I've skied with Patagonia Powder Bowl's for years but I wasn't enthused with this years color scheme in the Patagonia and this was an excellent replacement. If you're looking for warmth or insulation, though, go with a different jacket..this is one you'll need to layer with.

Sweet shell, missing a few features

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs large

I bought this shell to replace my Norrona Narvik this year. There are a few features I wish arcteryx would have incorporated into this shell that i felt were missing.

Firstly, there are no wrist gaiters to pair with the powder skirt, which i thought was sorta weird.

Second, some spots could use a little bit of microfleece lining, not alot, but just enough to soften up some spots near the face.

Also, as other reviews have stated, it does run a bit short on the body, i catch a lot of drafts coming in if i'm not wearing a tucked in bottom layer.

The velcro on the sleeves of this jacket is top notch and doesn't budge or pack full of snow like a lot of jackets i've owned, and the hood is just the right size to fit over a helmet.

Overall, this is an awesome shell for inbound days. I wouldn't take it out touring due to the lack of pockets, but i look forward to a lot of fun in this shell!
