Description

Stay more comfortable while you ski.

The Arc’teryx Men’s Stingray Jacket uses Gore-Tex Soft Shell fabric to give you a level of breathability that you never thought possible. Welded seams and water-tight zippers improve weather resistance, so you can keep going strong even when conditions turn to absolute mank. Arc’teryx integrated a powder skirt to keep the snow out on deep blower days, and the adjustable cuffs, storm hood, and high collar don’t hurt either.

My Favorite!!

I have probably 10 snow jackets but this is my fav by far. So light and durable yet so comfy. I like it a lot!

Lacks Features for Skiing

Gore-tex softshell is impressive, but it really doesn't uphold the concept of "soft" very well. The jacket material will crinkle. It is a shell with some softer characteristics. I have a Cloudveil Gore-Tex performance shell that seems to be quieter and softer, nevertheless. Love the colors and the fit. This jacket does give up a few things, and is not absolutely best suited as a "ski jacket." It is missing some valuable features, which many other skiing jackets incorporate. These are important to me, though they may not be to you: I'd prefer the hood and powerderskirt to be detachable. Some ski jackets, albeit "resort" jackets, such as Patagonia's Sidewall or Marmot's Mt. Blanc will have both of these features. These other two jackets also have at least four generous outside pockets (not counting arm pockets), and despite the Stingrays two large front pockets, these don't hold as much, or provide various storage options/locations. The stingray has two zippered inside pockets, yet these are smallish; you will not be able to stick your goggles inside; you will have to use one of the two larger outside pockets. Such pocket features would even be missed for "backcountry skiing."

What are some comparable jackets? I really like how lightweight this shell is, and am trying to find as many jackets that are lightweight with a powderskirt, and breathable.

Responded on

Get the Stingray! It's possibilies as a backcountry piece as well as an inbounds/resort slayer are actually pretty rare to find in a jacket. Not to mention the fact it has urbaneering on its resume too. Seriously, it's a tech jacket with a good fit available in an awesome array of colors, pull the trigger!

Jacket kicks butt

I took the stingray on two trips so far and it has proven to be a great jacket. Pit zips worked well when boot packing uphill. Very wind/weather proof. I have owned a number of jackets and the Acrteryx product seems very well made.

Cons: They should have a chest pocket for a mobile phone.

Best Shell I've owned.

Up until the last couple of years I've always been a big believer in the insulated ski jacket thing as I didn't really like the shells from back in the day (the last time I did the 3 in one thing was in 1997). So last year I thought I'd give this another try and picked up a not quite Goretex shell and worked out quite well, so this year I thought, hey, I'll go all in and get a proper shell.So here's a few comments after using it for skiing for about 10 days ...First of all I should mention something about the colour. The website lists it as Everglade and I expected some kind of green tinge to it, however all the pitures posted on Backcountry and Arc'teryx show the jacket to be yellow with a hint of green ... well when I got it it was more green with a hint of yellow. The pic I posted is what it really looks like ... it's still a wicked colour and I love it, but keep that in mind when you order if you have your heart set on a yellow jacket ... it's not.The jacket is fantastic, fit is incredible. I'm 5'11" 230 lbs, I love the way the jacket fits, it's narrower in the waist and has room in the shoulders so it's quite comfy yet it's not baggy, a nice combo.The colar comes up quite high which is fantastic (the largest reason I bought this jacket) so that you can burry your face in the colar when you're up on the chairlift if the wind it really howling. Also the back of the color that comes up to your face has a nice soft backing so it's comfy.This jacket feels a lot warmer then my last cheap shell (no goretex) for some reason when the wind was howling at Tremblant and it was -18C it didn't really bite as bad as it did before, I think given the nature of this shell and that its a soft goretex the shell is thicker ... or goretex is that much better ... either way it's fantastic for cold weather with the proper layers.Breathability was good, though i have not really tried it in warmer weather yet ...in conclusion ... fantastic shell, great materrials, nice pockets, great build ... just have a look at the colours first as they are slightly off the website pictures.

Best Shell I've owned.

In terms of base layers/layers underneath your shell, what do you use?

Responded on

I use a Icebraker base layer ... the heavy weight one on cold days and a medium one on nicer days and I use a salomon mid weight fleece ...

I tumble through a few feet of powder and came up with snow on my face, helmet, and pants, but the jacket stayed clean :)

Great jacket!

I've waited some time to purchase because of the price, but finally bit and should have done it sooner. Principally purchased for downhill skiing and first test was a -4 degree day. Jacket did well with a medium base layer and kept out the winds with the higher collar and skirt. I am 5' 7" and 160 lbs, wear a 42 short sport coat and 17 x 33 shirts. After trying on the medium and large, opted for the large because of the shoulders and used the elastic binders on the waist to cinch up extra. Also found the torso perfect in the large, but a little short in the medium. Great jacket, you won't be disappointed. The best fit advice someone mentioned earlier is order both sizes if not sure and return one.

Pretty solid

I bought this with a 20% off coupon, and at $400, it's definitely the most expensive piece of clothing I have ever owned. I bought the Everglade color, which is without a doubt darker-appearing than in the photo. I argue with my friends about whether it's green or yellow (the darker panels on the jacket are close to a dirty, swampy yellow with a greenish tint and the lighter panels are close to a dark yellow). Nice looking jacket, though, despite my use of the word "swamp" in the description.

The Medium fits me perfectly (5'11" 165 lbs), although it could be maybe 1 or 2 inches longer (my fleece layers poke out underneath if I don't tuck them into the snowpants). I can wear it with just a t-shirt underneath and it would fit fine, but magically, if I wear 3 layers underneath including a very thick fleece, it fits fine too.

Also, the collar/hood portion of this jacket is IDEAL. The hood fits over my ski helmet nicely, and the COLLAR ZIPS UP FULLY AND EASILY WHEN THE HOOD IS DOWN. This is a priceless feature of any jacket.

I have 2 concerns with the jacket:

1. For $500 (or $400, or even $300), you are getting a SHELL. It won't keep you warm. If you wear this casually around town in the winter (like, say, to a sporting event or going sledding with your 6 year old nephew), you will be cold. If you don't wear heavy layers underneath the shell, you will be cold on a ski lift or anytime you're not aggressively skiing. I'm just trying to warn people (like me) who are considering purchasing a shell for the first time. DO NOT PURCHASE THIS JACKET TO BE WARM - purchase it as a completely windproof, completely waterproof, well-made outer layer to be used during intense snowsports.

2. I understand Arc'teryx is trying to be minimalist with these jackets (not too many bells and whistles). But would it kill them to put a large enough pocket on the inside of the jacket to fit my goggles? I can barely fit my smartphone in these pockets! Good thing my gloves have wrist straps, otherwise I don't know what I'd do with those either when I'm walking around the lodge with a bowl of chili in one hand and my wallet in the other.

Overall, a few months and a few ski trips after I made this purchase, I'm happy with it because now I have a really nice shell that I can use in extreme conditions. But for this much money... make sure you wouldn't rather have something more versatile (warmer, more pockets) first. Or better yet, you can get TWO of something more versatile.

Trying to decide between the Stingray and the OR Mentor. Will the Stingray handle skiing in the rain in the PNW? The jacket of choice will be used for mostly skiing, though will get use hiking and cycling as well. Looking for adaptability, but am really replacing another hard shell. Any thoughts?

Best Answer Responded on

The Gore-Tex softshell material used to make this jacket will be completely waterproof, so you need have no worries about using this jacket in the rain. It's interesting though that you are deciding between this jacket and the OR Mentor, which is a Gore-Tex Pro shell jacket - there are several Arcteryx jackets that are a more direct comparison, like the Sidewinder, Alpha or Theta jackets. The Gore-Tex softshell material has a fleece lining on the inside of the jacket, which is supposed to make them a bit warmer, but it does come at the cost of the jacket being a little heavier and a little bulkier than a gore-tex pro shell equivalent. Just some things to keep in mind when you start talking about using your shell for purposes other than skiing.

The Stingray handles the weather here very well. I've been using mine for about 7 months now and I'm very happy with it. Thru the winter, I was boarding at Crystal every weekend, and have been hitting Mt Rainier and the Tatoosh pretty regularly since the lifts have closed up. I've enen worn it on a couple of pretty wet mixed climbs in the Cascades, and the water-proofness is still holding strong.

Will this jacket be to warm to wear year around? And does the powder skirt come out?

Responded on

The Arc'teryx Stingray has just a very light fleece flannel inside, so it would work great for wearing over a t-shirt in mild weather without being bulky or too warm. The powder skirt is fixed.

What size jacket are you using?

Great wind/water-stopping power; Torso is a bit short.

This is a great jacket (like most of Arc'Teryx's high-end shells) and does a great job keeping out moisture and breaking wind chill.Some are under the impression that the softshell material provides insulation. It's really doesn't. But it's much more comfortable if you are just wearing a base layer underneath on warmer days.My only beef with this jacket is it's length. I have a short torso as it is, but it feels short regardless. The powder skirt barely goes below my fleece.5 Stars IF this jacket were longer. Oh and I bought this on SAC/BCOutlet. Arc'Teryx is great, but not worth $500 bucks.

How well does this jacket slide over a fleece midlayer?

Responded on

The jackets fit definitely allows room for layering. Also the brushed liner does work fine with fleece or softer under-layers; minimal velcro effect!

I have used a 100 weight, and a 300 weight fleece so far in the jacket and it slid over them smooth as butter.
This past weekend on Mt. Washington, I had a 650 fill down jacket on under the shell and still had plenty of room for movement and climbing

I'm 6'02", 240 #'s, 6" sleeve.

Will the XXL Stingray fit given the need for underlayers in the shell ??

Is it really waterproof given the soft-shell material ?

Best Answer Responded on

The Arc'teryx Stingray is cut to accommodate layers, and you should have plenty of room (one consideration, smooth-faced layers work better than traditional fuzzy fleece due to the fleece lining of the coat-check the Atom or Tau)The Gore-Tex Softshell is totally waterproof. It's the membrance sandwiched in the middle, plus the DWR treated face fabric that keep water out.

Responded on

I'm 6'6", 230 lbs, with 37" sleeves. The Stingray is plenty long and roomy in XXL for me. Just a great jacket, all around, and willingly accepts punishment.

I am comparing the Arc'teryx Stingray and Theta Jackets. Does the Stingray hood stow in collar or is detachable? The Stingray is heavier, but it says no insulation. Please explain why. What do you recommend for Canadian or Rocky mtn powder?

Responded on

Hi Doug, The Arc'teryx Stingray has a drop hood, with a collar; it does not stow or remove. It is built with Gore-Tex softshell, which has a light fleece laminated to the inside, which does add a bit of insulation, and also accounts for most of the weight difference. As for which one: if you're primarily using it as ski/board jacket, the Stingray is better, because of features (pow-skirt, etc). The Theta AR is good as a ski coat, but is better for hiking, travel, etc- more versatile, and packable.

On these jackets, how long are they? First, worried that they fall a little short and do not cover the waist completely or will ride up when skiing...I am 6 feet and 210lbs. I wear a 16.5 by 34/35 shirt if that helps at all and a somewhat athletic build(??) I currently own an Arc'teryx Gore-tex Windstopper soft shell in a large that i would wear underneath...this makes choosing which size tough as I feel like i fall between sizes..What size would you recommend?

Any help would be great, thanks!

Responded on

I just tried one of these on this weekend. I'm 6' 175lbs (16" neck, 34/35 sleeve) and a medium fit me nicely with just enough room for a layer underneath. Since you've got a few pounds on me I'd recommend a large for you. The jacket hit slightly below the waist and the sleeves were long enough. This is definitely an awesome jacket. The copper looks great in person.

Responded on

thanks for that...in terms of length, do you find it long enough though to keep the snow out? I know the Theta are longer jackets and I want to make sure it covers enough of the waist area (keeping the cold and elements out...)

Responded on

it's not really a "long" fitting jacket (compared to some of the other arc'teryx mountaineering jackets). but that's what the powder skirt is for — it will definitely keep the snow out. i just returned my stingray (it was last years model) because the sleeves and waist weren't quite long enough. BUT, i have really long arms, AND i'm a snowboarder, so i prefer both measurements a little longer than normal.

that was my only beef with the stingray. other than that it's a really great jacket. and if you're a skier, it'll be just fine. also, i did just go to REI the other day and try on this years stingray (this one pictured above), and it did seem like maybe it was slightly longer than last years model.

Amazing Softshell, Can't get any better!!!

I traded in my Spyder coat for the Stingray this past year, and all I can say is that it is ridiculously amazing! Great fit, I'm 5ft 10 and about 150lbs and the medium is perfect, has plenty of room for layers. I will admit I was a little disappointed that mine was made in China, but I can see no difference in quality between the one that I own to the few that are made in Canada. It has been worth every penny that I spent on it, can't wait for the snow this season! If you want a great shell that feels great and is bomb proof look no further!

Great Jacket!!

This jacket was made in Canada; I like the soft shell Gore-tex, armpit zips work well for backcountry hiking. I mainly snowboard, snowmobile and sled with my kids with this jacket. It blocks wind and keeps the chill out. I wear XL; 5'10" 210 lbs and have room for layering. Stay dry even in wet, slushy conditions.
