When the wind whips up a shower on your return loop to the car, pull out the super-lightweight Arcteryx Men's Squamish Hooded Jacket and get back to the trailhead without running for shelter. This wind- and water-resistant shell packs into its own chest pocket and weighs less than a sandwich. The Gossamera fabric is light and packable, but still has a substantial feel so you won't feel like you're wearing a plastic bag, and it actually looks good enough to wear around town.

Here's what others have to say...

The picture of the Iron Anvil color, seems...

The picture of the Iron Anvil color, seems to pretty clearly be a women's instead of a men's. Is that the case?

Hey dp2113306511,

Thanks for your question.

No, that is not the case. This item is a mens jacket.

Thanks Grant, but that picture you linked to is not the same picture that is shown above on this page, at least in my browser. The zipper is lower and the shape of the torso has a more feminine shape. (Just in the iron anvil color)

Yeah, I am backing PoorMan on this one at least as far as the picture goes. That photo is clearly a women's cut. However, that is just a mistake by our photo team. The actual inventory that would ship out if you were to purchase that variant would in fact be the men's option.

I will make sure that heads roll for this one! Actually I will just see if somebody will swap the photo out.

ummm yes please.

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

This is my go to jacket for most all things spring/summer/fall. I literally take this jacket everywhere as it is always in my truck. Specifically stuffed in its own pocket in the glove box. Yes, it is that handy. It is great for those "Oh, crap, I wish I had a jacket" moments. Not too heavy but just enough to take the edge off. I use it for hiking, camping, backpacking, and running (more or less everything). Material is great and tear resistant. It is not waterproof but will bead up nicely and keep you dry in a light drissle.

Fit is true to size, I am 5'11'' 185lbs and a medium is perfect. The napoleon pocket is fantastic and also doubles as the stuff sack. The velcro adjustments on the sleeves allow for a perfect fit and the hood is great when you need it.

If you don't have this jacket, you should probably get it.

I've owned many wind-breaker-shell like most of us, and this is my favorite. The fabric feels good on the skin unlike most glossy ripstops. This has a matte finish, and has some mechanical(no lycra, all nylon) stretch to it. It's quiter in the wind too .

The hood I was hesitant at first sight. I've not met a "one cord does all" that fit the way I wanted, but this does . The zipper is very easy to use with one hand.

Rain resistence is very very good. Breathability , of course relative to each person, I find very good.

If you're comparing this with the Houdini, well, don't. Ahahaha ! The fit of this is trimmer, and the matte fabric w/mechanical stretch is a huge improvement over the glossy ripstop and well worth the extra dollars.

For fit, I requested this from Acr Teryx, and they answered !
"Thank you for contacting Arc'teryx. Here are the measurements for the Squamish Hoody:"

Chest: 119.8cm
Neck: 50.5cm
Sleeve: 96cm
Front: 72.6cm
Back: 74.9cm

Chest: 127.8cm
Neck: 52.4cm
Sleeve: 98.5cm
Front: 72.6cm
Back: 74.9cm

The chest of the Large I received in Oxblood appears measured by them right at the arm pit, and it tapers from there. I measured 1" below the seam across the chest just below the pocket, and measured 48"/120cm.

What are the differences between this 2014 version and the 2013 version, which costs $10 more.

Best Answer Responded on

As far as I know, the 2013 uses a 20d fabric and the 2014 uses a 30d fabric, which is heavier but more durable. The 2014 is also cut slimmer.
