    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.

    Keeps the Cold Out

      I love this jacket. The quality is impeccable and the features are well thought out. It is lightweight and easily fits in my pack. The Gore Tex Pro an amazing job at keeping the weather at bay.

      I ordered a L and it fits great. I like that my skins will fit in the hand pockets(one in each) I have worn this a ton backcountry skiing and it is perfect for the descent. It has very adequate underarm zippers that are really efficient at dumping heat so for a mellow cold uphill in the shade it is not too much. I have also used it at the ski area and love all the pockets for snacks and other niceties you may need while lift riding.

      Keeps the Cold Out

      A - for Arcteryx

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

      I don't think I need to sell anyone on Arcteryx's shells. This is just one of many All-Star jackets.

      I chose this because it's durable and should take a lot of abuse, for a long time. I'll have to update this review after I've had it a few years. But, knowing Arcteryx, it will be bomber.

      My favorite things about the coat's features are the long pit-zips and the weight. It's very light-weight, but keeps me warm with just a base layer and an active fleece.

      On a superficial note, I also really like all the handy pockets. I have my resort pass on my arm, my replacement lens in the napoleon pocket, my credit cards in the inside pocket, and random other stuff in the hand pockets. Also, the wrists easily velcro down, and fit nicely under my gloves.

      Down side, not sure. I noticed the previous review said the jacket is loud. It is not the loudest, but it does sound like your average ski jacket.

      If I could dream a little, I would have an insulated pocket for my phone, that would keep it from freezing and therefore shutting off. I don't have any other complaints, at this time.

      The size is true to size. I'm 5'8, 135lbs. The medium is the right size, for me. However, I am wearing a small, in the photo. I got a small, because I wanted it to fit into my pack, easily. There was much debate in the office, as the small clearly fit me, and fits nicely with two layers. But, the style is meant to be longer than it is on me. The telling sign was when I snapped the powder skirt over my ski pants. It's really tight. So, even though I'm fine with the size I have, and happy that it will pack down small in my touring pack, I'm truly a medium.

      More questions? Just call or email me, directly.

      Expensive but close to perfect

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