Premium fabric and construction for wind-resistant moving comfort.

If the wind's howling during your early morning jog, stay comfortable in the lightweight, wind-resistant Arc'teryx Women's Squamish Hooded Jacket. Arc'Teryx obsesses over its fabrics, and this jacket's nylon ripstop fabric with mechanical stretch that allows you to move comfortably is no exception. While offering wind-resistance and free-moving comfort, the fabric also features an air-permeable PU coating and DWR finish that adds water-resistance so you stay dry in early spring drizzles. The jacket's carefully constructed, low-profile StormHood features a soft brim and one-hand drawcord adjustment, and rotates with your head so your vision is never obscured. Tighten down the cuffs and drawcord-adjustable hem if you need added protection against chilly air. The jacket includes a zippered chest pocket to hold your car key or other small essentials, and the jacket can be stuffed down into the chest pocket if you're taking it with you in your hiking backpack or travel luggage.

My favorite go-to lightweight jacket!

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

Sizing reference: (Female) 5' 4.75", 110 pounds, ~34A.

USE: I purchased this jacket to use for running & hiking in light rain & wind in the spring/summer. In reality, I wear this jacket rain or shine. Note: this is NOT waterproof & will not keep you dry in a downpour.

FIT: I have a size SMALL. I don't like my jackets very tight, and I like to keep in mind I might want a couple thin layers underneath any jacket I have to get the most use out of them. I have broad shoulders, a fairly small cup size, and about a 34" bust, & the chest fits perfectly--not too tight, not too loose. I have a +1 ape index & the cuffs fit just right at my wrists, & they don't slide around. The jacket fits comfortably around your face when fully zipped (see pic) & neither constrains your neck nor chafes your chin.

PROS: It's incredibly lightweight & perfectly stretchy, and if you need a warm-weather emergency jacket on a run, walk, hike, climb, etc., stop here! When I don't need it, I can easily & quickly tie it around my waist. The single cinch cord at the bottom of the jacket as well as on the hood are effortless to use, and the light but firm functional brim makes this my go-to jacket on a cloudy day when I don't want to carry around my crunchy Gore-Tex. The chest pocket is great for carrying my phone & tiny wallet. One more thing: the silver logo is reflective! (see pic). Arc'teryx thinks of it all, which, for me, makes it worth the investment.

CONS: Use the velcro closures carefully on this jacket--they may scratch your skin. When I first got this jacket, I had a few 8-inch bright red scratches on my body from the sharpness of the edge on the closure. The edges have since softened a bit with use. Finally, the lack of side pockets drives some people mad. I am not one of those people, & on a run, I find that I simply don't need side pockets; but be aware there aren't any on this model.

Also check out the Arc'teryx "Cita" for slightly more reflectivity & a different color selection.

My favorite go-to lightweight jacket!
