    Put your puffy underneath this storm-proof beast and let the good times ride.

    All winter long, you're on high alert for the next big storm, the next refresher, or the next snow-stealing powder hound who crosses through the fall line. In the Arc'teryx Women's Sentinel Jacket, your tours of duty through storms are warm and dry events. Guaranteed waterproof and breathable three-layer GoreTex Pro technology ensures your ski-hungry bod stays dry when the skies are spewing snow and you're hiking to the lookout. A relaxed cut lets you put your puffy underneath when temps nosedive. 

    Being the first in line when ski patrol opens the world's best bowl matters to you. Traveling the traverse and side-stepping with speed gets your sweat going. Open the underarm vents to dump excess heat without losing your primo position in line. As you wait for the sign to change from Closed to Open, snap the powder skirt together to keep the snow spray from sneaking up your back. The hood holds your helmet so you don't have to choose between casing your cranium and a dry dome. When it's dumping and your enjoying fresh tracks every time, the laminated brim diverts a bit of the weather away from your face.

    The women-specific cut on this jacket puts a slightly stylish spin on the storm-proof ski jacket. Articulated elbows let you freely flap your wings, or simply make the casual pole-lean look good. Large cuffs slide over your gloves and seal out snow with hook-and-loop adjusters. A multitude of pockets hold lip balm, bag of corn chips, some beef jerky, and your sacred flask to toast the summit and bless the downward run.

    total disappointment

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

    -a hard fabric that is not comfortable and is quite noisy
    -given the price point, would expect the interior compartment to be more thoughtful
    -as a shell, the cut is not comfortable for layering inside
    -bought a lot of items at and have to unfortunately say this one is the worst

    I do not find it noisy or stiff. It is a soft shell type material with hard shell characteristics. I am 5'5' and 112 lbs and I ordered the XS. It fits well with a mid weight layering puffy underneath. The XS is quite short. It integrates with (snaps into) the sentinel pant and the system seems to work well. Without the integrated pants, it would be too short! The small is quite a bit longer but voluminous otherwise on me.

    happy skiier!

    I purchased the 2014-2015 sentinel jacket with some colorblocking on the shoulders. It's just a shell with no interior insulation layer, but I knew that when I purchased it, and purchased an arcteryx atom lt jacket to wear underneath. I'm pretty hourglass/pear shaped, so I went up a size so that it would fit without pulling across my hips. I was pleased that it's perfectly waterproof and that I wasnt even damp after skiing in heavy lake-effect snow and grauplel. The front zipper comes up HIGH and covers my entire neck gaitor, although I do still wear a neck gaitor for the fleecy comfort, as this has just a minimal zipper cover. The hood fits over my big round helmet (smith gage) and has a stiff visor on the top. The pit zips are long and easy to wrangle- I just hold the cuff with my arm up in the air to hold the fabric taut when pulling the zips. The pocket situation is sparse- I usually put my phone in my atom pocket and then kept my credit card and id in the tiny inner chest pocket in this jacket. I do like the left arm pocket here for an rfid resort pass. I skied a lot of days that started at 15 degrees and warmed up to 28 or 32, and was pretty happy in a base tshirt or tank, atom lt, and this jacket, opening up the zips later in the day. It's long enough to cover most of my butt, and pretty loose/boxy. If you want girly or cute, get it in a cute color- I'd usually prefer warm and dry over fashionable.

    Solid shell for spring skiing.

    I needed a spring shell for snowboarding and this has been a satisfying purchase so far.

    I'm usually between sizes thanks to a long torso, smaller waist/bust, broad shoulders and wide hips , so nothing ever fits perfect but I'm happy with my choice to go up a size for this purchase.

    The extra room allows me to layer for those days with mixed conditions. The length of the torso is great, hits right at mid-butt level (with my long torso). Arms are long enough I can reach overhead without them coming past my wrists. The upper arm area seems to have a lot of extra fabric. While aesthetically it annoys me a little when I'm only wearing the shell, if I ever needed to wear a super heavy puffy for insulation with this jacket there would be plenty of space to do so.

    The pocket situation is lacking, With the micropocket as the only inside pocket, I have to keep my wallet and mobile in an outside pocket. That's the biggest downside to this jacket for me. Other than that, it's great lightweight shell that has kept me comfortable and dry in a range of temps (mid-20s to mid-40 F) without any other insulation.

    Almost a 5, BUT

    Bought this jacket last week for downhill skiing and have been very pleased. Very lightweight, but warm - wind proof and breathable, good fit with room for a variety of layers for varying conditions, hood works great over my ski helmet...all good, EXCEPT - really could use more pockets!!!! One tiny inside pocket that even a cell phone won't fit in - no goggles pocket where there could be one. Outside pockets could definitely use improvement and another could be added. Maybe next year...

    Exceeded My Expectations

    I have extremely high standards for ski jackets. And by high standards, I mean that I?m willing to pay for something super technical because am constantly cold/find myself getting wet easily. I want the fit to be long enough so that it doesn?t ride up, and simultaneously want to still look like I have a waist. (Priorities, I know).
    In the past I have usually gone for insulated jackets that have an excessive amount of features like wrist gators with thumb holes, magnetic snaps to keep the hood back, etc., but found that while they worked well for colder days on the resort, they were not versatile for anything else. I needed something that would provide warmth on colder days when paired with a micro down, could act as a lighter jacket for backcountry, or back bowl days that required hiking, and spring skiing.
    While I was skeptical about moving to a technical shell, I couldn?t be more pleased. And I am pleasantly surprised at how I don?t miss all the extra features too. The pit zips are deep which is a huge plus for longer hikes. The scuba hood is helmet compatible for sub-zero windblown days, and the small fit me perfectly even layered over a mid-weight down jacket (I?m 5?5? and 128 lbs). I have skied resort to backcountry from dry Colorado powder to long days in wet heavy British Columbia snow and stayed dry and warm. I have even enjoyed having it for mountain biking on cooler wet days in the spring/fall because it breaths so well and give you slightly more coverage than rain jacket.

    I also purchased this jacket in a medium which seems to work better with the heavier down jackets and gives you a little extra length without adding too much bulk. If you think you are between sizes or like a looser/longer fit size up.

    Exceeded My Expectations

    Love this jacket!

    There are not so many skiing jackets without insulation I could use for mountain tripping as well. And there it was! I found perfect shell jacket for most of my outdoor activities! It's 100% waterproof, super breatheable and very light. I've used it for mountain tripping in the Rockies and Himalayas and I skied slovakian mountains in it. This jacket rocked everywhere! :)

    Additionally it's very cute and fits perfectly! The only thing I don't appreciate is that it gets dirty easily and it's hard to get rid of it...My nepali friend spent one whole afternoon cleaning the black smudges and dust from our 30 days Himalaya trek :D

    Love this jacket!

    Absolutely fantastic!

    I bought this for my mom, but I took it out a couple of times over winter just to try it out, and I want one in a men's version. This jacket is waterproof and extremely breathable. There are pockets and vents right where you want them, and this women's version gave me some chest space for extra beers. My mom loves it too. It fits her perfectly.

    Great outer layer!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I purchased the Sentinel to serve as my outermost shell when skiing and it has not disappointed. Functionally it is perfect as a windbreaker and protection from precip. I am 5'6 / 130 lbs and purchased a small which fits perfectly in the torso both layered and by itself. Aesthetically I wish the arms fit a little closer but I would rather them be loose than too tight!! Also am obsessed with pockets when I'm skiing and the Sentinel has four - more than other Arcteryx shells. Definitely recommend.

    Best Women's Ski Jacket EVER

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    After a good 4 or so year run of my Arc'Teryx Stingray jacket I needed a replacement. I wanted the same goretex "shoftshell" because I love the tiny bit of stretch and quieter fabric (looks like they now refer to it as N70-p) and it was perfect timing for Arc'Teryx to introduce the Sentinel. Same great fabric, but an updated scuba style hood and slightly better contour throughout for women. In my opinion the scuba hood makes it MUCH more functional and the collar fits MUCH better around the face as a result, I now have plenty of room to fit a scarf or neck gator for the windy snowy blizzard days. The fit is still a good loose fit so you can actually maneuver in it and layer (unlike other ski jackets that focus more on fashion and are barely good for standing up straight let alone actually being active). I like to give all my ski outerwear the crouch-squat-and-hug-test for that reason. This passes with flying colors. The pockets are also in a great place that you can still use them with a backpack on, and big pit zips are awesome. Don't let the weight of the fabric fool you into thinking you need a ton of layers either. That tiny little fuzzy interior traps a lot of heat, and you can dump it with the giant pit zips if needed, or fit a good insulator under on the mega cold days. I put this one through the ringer last season from touring and resort skiing in the Wasatch (Utah) to two weeks of ski touring above the arctic circle in Norway.

    I'm 5'5" and pear shaped. I generally wear a L or 14 on top, but a full size bigger on the bottom with a 14/16 and XL to XXL on bottom depending on brands and the XL Arc'teryx Sentinel fits great through the hips.

    I have not tried the Sentinel jacket, but I have tried the Stingray. The Stingray has an "athletic fit" which is two levels trimmer than the "relaxed fit" of the Sentinel (the most relaxed fit among the Arc'teryx). If you plan to layer, you should go with the Sentinel. I am 168cm/5'6 1/2'' and about 132lb. I tried the Stingray in size S with a fleece mid layer and it felt fitted especially in the chest. It is still quite comfortable and not at all restricting. I can see why some people prefer it that way.

    Burly but really cute!

    Really cute but very durable, waterproof , and breathable. The Annabelle Green is actually much greener than the main image, but the detail images are pretty accurate. The color is beautiful but it shows dirt easily. If you get that color and you're like me and tend to spill half your coffee on yourself on the ride up to the mountain then be ready to wash it regularly. I've washed it a lot and it's held up very well and dries quickly. The fit is pretty true, but fits smaller than other pieces in Arc'teryx's ski/ freeride line. It fits more like a traditional Arc'teyrx jacket. I'm 5'7" 135 lbs and got a small. It fits ok, but gets snug with heavier layers and a beacon . I have other Arc'teryx pieces from with the "relaxed" fit and a small is perfect, but am usually a medium in Arc'teryx regular or slim fit.

    I was thinking of taking this jacket on a trip known to have constant rain downpours, will this jacket keep me as dry as a rain jacket would?
