Arc'teryx Bringing on the Tech!!

I love this jacket! It's my first gore-tex piece and I now know what the rave is all about. This stuff rocks!! I've used this jacket in a variety of wet conditions.

The first time I used it was on a cold day fishing on the Provo. It breathed well, resisted the wind, and protected me from spray n splashes. Fly-fishing worthy? Check!

I have used this a bunch skiing and it rocks. On one of the few wet snow days at Snowbird it did the trick! While everyone else was soaked and unpleasant, I was happily dry and warm. Ski worthy? Check!

Don't let the specs on this jacket scare you away like many gore-tex pieces. The cut is awesome!! It's the longest women's cut they offer, so you will be styling on the mountain.

Super stoked on this jacket and highly recommend for any lady that wants outdoor/ski jacket that seeks performance as well as stylish fit!

PS: in between sizes? Go with the smaller of the two. This jacket runs on the more loose side.
