Description

Extreme weather warning = another amazing powder day!

The ability to ignore the weather, even at its nastiest, gives you the power to ride more powder days. The Arc’teryx Men’s Stingray Jacket will have you out getting face shots on days when everyone else is stuck at the base lodge wishing they had the gear to brave the cold. The lightly insulated Gore-Tex soft shell material is so bulletproof that you won't even notice the cold, but it breathes so well that you won't get baked and clammy on a gnarly backcountry hike, either.
  • Gore-Tex Softshell fabric is guaranteed waterproof and breathable
  • 1.6mm seam allowance reduces bulk and weight
  • Articulated elbows and gusseted underarms give you free movement and durability
  • Underarm Zippered vents quickly regulate temperature
  • Molded zipper garages eliminate icing
  • Hidden Recco reflector for backcountry safety (not a replacement for a beacon)

Wondering about sizing. I'm 5'7" about...

Posted on

Wondering about sizing. I'm 5'7" about 165lbs, athletic. Wear a size small in the fission sv and it fits just about perfect with enough room to add a sweater if needed. I'm thinking a size small as I like a trimmer fit. Thinking of an r1 or r2 type fleece or atom lt for mid-layer if I really ever need one

Best Answer Responded on

I think the Small sounds perfect for you. The R1, R2 and Atom are all slim fitting and are not bulky. It might be tight with the Atom as there is actual synthetic insulation making it slightly puffy but, if you bought that in a small and it fits pretty tight then you should be fine. As always you can purchase both sizes and send one back, we will always cover the shipping back for that type of situation.

Liked everything about it

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

I liked everything about this jacket. You can wear it in the summer or in the winter. Recently wore it at a -7 degree in Jay Peak Vermont it was great, quite comfortable and not bulky; one of the reason why I love Arcteryx, their stuff are all about fit. buy it you wont regret it

It looks like the stingray has high side...

Posted on

It looks like the stingray has high side pockets. Waiting for ski lifts and sitting on them, is it awkward/uncomfortable to use these side pockets as hand warmers?

Responded on

No, they actually are comfortable in my opinion. Buy the jacket you will not regret it. Purchased mine before Christmas in Cherokee Brick. They run a bit big though!

Responded on

Hey BNL,
utap487298 is correct, the pockets are high but they are long enough that it is not uncomfortable to use them to keep your hands warm on the lift. I love my jacket and keep a pair of hand warmers in the pockets for those days when the lift is just too cold!

So Far, So Awesome!

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

I've had this jacket for about 2 months now and I literally have no complaints. First off, I'm 6' even about 190 give or take and I got a large which is still roomy enough for as many layers as I need but without feeling too baggy if I wear it with nothing but a base layer underneath. I have primarily used this jacket for ski days up at Alta and it has performed amazingly in a variety of conditions. I've been skiing on days down to about 0 degrees Fahrenheit and I've still felt warm skiing with this jacket, a puffy coat and a thin base layer. I've also used it on slightly warmer days and it's been great by itself and a synthetic top. This past weekend we took a little road trip down south to Zion National Park and I used it while backpacking in temps around 30 degrees Fahrenheit. It functioned great as a cold weather hiking shell, allowing me to dump heat with the armpit vents whenever I started to feel a bit warm. I haven't gotten the chance to really test out the gore-tex in a nasty slushstorm or anything but it has kept me 100% dry on heavy snow days.

I would recommend this jacket highly to anyone looking for a high quality multi-functional waterproof shell jacket!

I am 6'2'', 185lb, 41.5'' chest, 34.5'' waist and 35'' hip and 35'' sleeve. What size?

Best Answer Responded on

Landon,

Those dimensions make you a great candidate for a size Large. It should fit you spot on ... makes me jealous!!

I forgot to add, if you look at other Arc'teryx jackets, make sure you look at what the fit is. If it is an "Expedition" fit then it'll be larger than the normal "Athletic" fit due to additional room for layering. Just something to be aware of!

I am 5'9" 185lbs what size?

Responded on

My best guess is probably a size large but you are probably going to want to check out the size chart and compare your chest size and sleeve length against what is listed. Your legs factor into your height and weight more than you would think and your legs have nothing to do with how a coat will fit.

Charger Not Included.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs large

The first time I wore this jacket (discontinued sulfur color) into work, my boss took one look at me and asked if I had to plug it in to recharge it at night. The answer was no. This jacket was super bright, and I assume the Emerald Isle color is too, so if that's your jam, have no fear.

Its a rad shell for sure. Don't be fooled by the little note about the "light insulation", its just like the most minimal of soft fuzziness that you could imagine and its not hot or bulky or anything, so cool your jets. The GorTex is top notch, getting wet was never an issue. The hood rocks, the velcro cuffs are quality, zippers are super nice. Everything you could ask for.

I know its pricey, and this sounds cheesey, but really you're not just buying a jacket - you're buying a sense of security for any winter scenario you could dream of finding yourself in.

My one beef is this - the sizing is a bit big. I'm 5'8", 165 lbs and the small fits perfectly.

My new casual jacket.

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

I'm not an avid skier or snowboarder. But I received one of these in small as a birthday present as my hard shell jacket has finally seen its better days after many years of use. I am 5'7" about 140lbs average build, and this jacket fits me well. I have tried other Arc'teryx jackets in the stores and some were either too relaxed or had their cut in the front a little too high so it looks weird. This jacket's cut from front is just right, the back is a little long and covers my behind, but I know what this shell was meant to be for, so not much of a complaint there.

I've worn the Stingray on light drizzles and obviously, the gore tex material laughed at it. The fuzz this jacket has, is a great touch, making the interior of the jacket softer. Also I was expecting as a soft shell, it would feel soft to the touch on the outside. It still feels like a solid shell. All in all, as my new go to jacket for casual wear during the winter, this jacket looks great and in the event that I do hit the slopes, I would be prepared.

My new casual jacket.

Hello,

Hello,
I am looking at the Stingray Mens Medium, I am 5'8 163 and have broader shoulders. should i look at a large or stick with medium.

phil

Responded on

I'd stick with the medium. You will be swimming in the large as far as volume is concerned. I'm 5'10 175lb and the medium fits me perfectly so as a smaller guy than me, you definitely don't need the large.

Responded on

Im same height as you and was swimming in the Medium. Good for multi layers though. I went with a small. Be a better fit in the spring/fall when less layers needed.

Love the Stingray

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

I picked up a used Stingray from GT last year in a large. At 6'2" and 207 the athletic fit is just right on my frame, albeit a tad short in length for my height.
At 6' the large would be perfect. I will be looking to score one in an XL next time around, I need the extra 1.5 inches an Arc XL will give me. I have an XL Sidewinder which gives me the length I need, but more bulk than I need.

Great jacket

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I am a body-builder, and therefore disproportionate in size. I am 5'11" about 195, and the XL fits me fine.

The jacket gives me plenty of room to move, and kept me quite warm; I even had to open the pit zips wide to avoid overheating.

It was a typical January day on the bumps on Mary Jane.

The jacket is not cheap, but I am a definite fan.

I am waiting for a good powder day to find out how the powder skirt works, but I like what I am seeing so far, and the goretex is definately a good thing for those wet spring-skiing days.

Great, with some caveats

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I gave this 5 stars even if my review title may seem to warrant only 4.

The main issue with this jacket is it doesn't really hold much gear inside of it. Goggles and gloves are not intended to fit into these pockets. That said, this jacket wasn't made to drop those sorts of items into it. I have tried on the relaxed fit jackets from Arcteryx and those pockets do comfortably fit larger items.

I went with this athletic fit jacket because it looked nicer on me. Most other jackets looked like I was wearing a waterproof potato sack. I like the minimalist design and slim pockets, this jacket just looks good on and has "wear around town" styling.

The pockets nicely hold wallet, keys, iPhone, ski masque/beanie and trail maps. The interior pocket is fantastic for holding my iPhone securely while I listen to music.

I reviewed the Stingray pants and much of what I said there applies to this jacket. To paraphrase, I love it. The material is extremely thin but so far has proved to be rugged. It has kept me very warm. The vents are large and cool you down quickly. The material is whisper quiet and you just don't feel like you're wearing ski clothing with this stuff (I feel practically naked while wearing it).

I am still adjusting the drop hood to fit well. I think I got it down this last trip. I have had difficulties with it staying on over my helmet at high speeds, but I think that was user error. I do not notice the hood when it is down, it disappears behind me and does not flap around or pull at my neck (good things). The hood scrunches down to stay on when you aren't wearing a helmet and still keeps its good looks.

The medium fits my frame without need to adjust the various pull cords. I am 6 foot with change, 185 lbs. I wear a 42 long jacket size. The jacket fits me without much bulk in torso, yet still has ample sleeve length.

Good review but you lost all credentials at the "ski masque" comment!

I have purchased the Atom Lt a few weeks ago with the intention of getting the Stingray later on. I am 5'10, 177lbs, I have tried the Medium, the shoulder fits well however the arms are loose and long, is that normal ? Thank you

Responded on

Yes most jackets in the whiteline collection have slightly longer arms (great for those of us who have monkey arms!). It works really well when using a glove under the arm cuffs

Is the stingray's gore-text soft shell...

Posted on

Is the stingray's gore-text soft shell worse than the 3L pro shell? What is the main difference in waterproofness / windproofness?

Responded on

Tester, the Stringray features Gore-Tex Pro 3L with Soft shell Technology. Not worse, just different. Both are equally waterproof and windproof. Soft Shell Technology gives you a light-weight, moisture-wicking, lo-loft brushed liner. Essentially the inside is fuzzy and offers a little more warmth than straight Gore Pro. The face fabric will also have a softer hand. The trade off is that Gore Pro (sans Soft Shell tech) will be slightly more durable. Here's a pic of the Soft Shell Technology backer at 70x magnification.

My Daily Hardshell Jacket

  • Gender: Male

This is the jacket that I wear the most, though I have several other options. It fits well, has appropriate pockets for everyday use, and is comfortable enough over lots of different under layers. I wear it through most of the PNW winter, with everything from freezing fog to pouring rain, and have been very happy with it.

That said, I have a different shell that I use for mountaineering. This one has too much micro fleece in the body and neck which wicks up water during all day activities.

Can't say anything for the RECCO reflector, I very seldom ski at resorts with this technology available. Lots of people ask what it is and how it works, though...

Full Disclosure, I've been participating in the Gore MountainTechs program since 2007 and have received several similar jackets for testing.

Responded on

What do you layer with this jacket for when its say 25-30 degrees out? Also for boarding/skiing, will the alpha LT be a better option since the fleece on this one can get soaked with sweat?

Responded on

Tester, I skied last week at Alta (@ 10,500 feet it was ~25 degrees). I wore this shell with a Norrona fleece mid-layer over an American Apparel t-shirt. I was in great shape even on the lifts when winds whipped up to 30+ MPH.

I recommend pairing with this fleece: http://www.backcountry.com/norrna-lofoten-fleece-jacket-mens, a Patagonia R2, or another similar 200-weight fleece. Maybe something a little warmer if your body gets cold easily.

Per your other question, I have worn the Stingray dozens of days in varied conditions/temps and have never had a problem with it getting soaked with sweat. There is no fleece lining -- it's more of a micro fuzz.

Great on mountain jacket

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have had this jacket for several years- and it is one of my favorites. I use it primarily for resort skiing, and i appreciate the soft shell material, the Gore-tex, and the micro fleece backer that keeps you just a bit warmer than a straight shell. This is cut a bit roomier than a typical Arcteryx jacket- i think if I reordered, I would definitely order a large vs an xl. I am a product tester for Gore-tex, but I purchased this for my personal use.

I'm looking for a versitle Arc'teryx jacket...

Posted on

I'm looking for a versitle Arc'teryx jacket with a bit of fuzz that I can wear over an Atom or Aphix for on and off hill skiing. I tend to run cold. I'm 6'4" and 160 lbs so I like something with an Athletic fit and not relaxed: usually a M in Arc'Teryx works. I like the Stingray but the lack of a storm hood has me questioning. Any advice?

Responded on

I have had a lot of arcteryx jackets including the Alpha SV. I prefer the drop hood vs the storm hood because of the comfort it provides.
