Premium fabrics + obsessive construction = protection for a lifetime of hard use.

Arc'teryx obsesses over details to create superior quality outerwear, and its Women's Scimitar Jacket provides optimal protection when you're slashing through deep powder or navigating the slopes in an epic dump. The jacket's premium fabric and top-of-the-line construction are designed to optimize your comfort while taking a lifetime of hard use. The face fabric is luxuriously soft and lightweight yet extremely durable. The three-layer Gore-Tex Pro membrane offers excellent breathability while providing guaranteed waterproof protection, and is Gore's toughest fabric made to withstand hard use in extreme conditions. The WaterTight Vislon front zipper keeps moisture from getting in through the cracks without the need for a bulky storm flap, and the sleeve pocket is also sealed off with a WaterTight zipper. If you need added protection against falling snow or icy windchill, you can cinch down the helmet-compatible hood with hidden adjusters in front or with an adjuster at the back of the hood. The hood is designed to move with your head so you maintain a clear field of vision at all times.

A powder skirt with snaps that allow you to connect it to compatible Arc'teryx pants, and a drawcord at the hem, work together to seal snow out if you're plowing through deep powder or spraying snow on fast runs. If you're working up a sweat while hiking out to your favorite spot in the backcountry, you can air out by unzipping the mesh-lined underarm vents. The jacket's roomy expedition fit provides plenty of room for layering underneath while allowing room to move, and ergonomic 3-dimensional patterning (or e3D) supports a maximum range of movement through articulation at the elbows and underarm gusseting that keeps the jacket from lifting when you raise your arms. Arc'teryx has thought of everything to provide moving comfort and optimal protection, so you can focus on performance and fun out on the mountain.

Expensive but close to perfect

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

    Size Purchased: Large

This jacket is perfect for backcountry use or anywhere on the mountain really, it has all the pockets you need yet still packs down pretty small, great style that is not too baggy but still room to layer and of course the excellent waterproofing and breathability of GoreTex Pro.

The only negative thing I could say about this jacket is that it crinkles very loudly when you move which is somewhat annoying but that is true of all GoreTex Pro shells.


Great hiking/ski jacket!

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

I've used this in the backcountry about five times now and I love it! It blocks out all wind, has great ventilation when needed and the hood fits easily over my helmet or just over my head when I'm wearing a hat and it's windy. It also folds up easily to fit in my day pack. I used to have to wear more layers but since this blocks out all wind I can go with just a base layer underneath and I'm toasty. I got it in Cyan Blue and it's a really nice color and fits well. I'm 5'5" and 117 lbs. and the small is a good fit for me. It's the most I've ever spent on a jacket, but it's well worth the money to have the right gear.

What is the center back length of a medium?
