    An efficient fleece designed for alpinists.

    The Arc'teryx Men's Procline Hybrid Hooded Jacket was designed for high aerobic ascents in demanding alpine environments. In order to deliver the best efficiency in climates where moisture and thermal management can be the difference between success and failure, Arc'teryx employed a hybrid mapping construction in the Procline, which places a 20-denier nylon shell throughout the body along with a moisture-wicking grid fleece fabric through the front, back, sides, and hood of the jacket. Polartec Power Stretch side panels maximize mobility whether you're skiing, ice climbing, or working your way up a mixed route. The jacket has a trim fit, which puts a premium on movement and minimal bulk, allowing the jacket to be comfortably layered under a shell when the weather takes a turn for the worse.

    Growing on me

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: XL
    • Height: 6'1"
    • Weight: 210lbs

    Initially, I wasn't very fond of this jacket - I found it didn't do a good enough job blocking the wind, and the hood design made me grumpy (more below). After using it most of a season for ski touring, it grew on me in a big way. Initially, I found the wind resistance sub-par, especially where I was in and out of the wind as I was skinning or booting. I noticed those side panels a lot. Unlike a softshell, which leaks a little wind through everywhere, this jacket lets air through the sides and underarms, and the difference between front and sides is noticeable.

    Eventually, though, I grew to appreciate the additional ventilation on the way down. I realized that when I was skiing in a hardshell or softshell, I was sweating by the time I was putting skins back on. These days, I rarely put a shell over this jacket, and the additional breeze feels good after just a few turns. It certainly keeps me much drier - even if I'm sweating through my base layer when I'm ripping skins at the top, this layer will be dry when I get to the base.

    Overall, this is a decent jacket. Overall warm is roughly equivalent to a Patagonia R1 under a windshell, but more breathable than that combo.

    Now, the hood design - ugh. I don't understand what the designers were thinking (and I usually love Arc'T hoods!). The hood has the normal, back of the head elastic, which works well. At the front, though, those same elastics emerge from their sheaths and connect to the front of the hood in such a way that the elastics are always pinning my ears to my head. It can get to be really uncomfortable, especially if I'm wearing the hood under a helmet.

    No need for pit-zips---here's why: light, wind-resistant (think of the awesome Atom LT by Arc’teryx), air permeable, water-resistant, and save the pit-zips for another jacket---this one includes Polartec Powerstretch with Hardface down the side panels, through the pits and down the whole arm length. The slightest arm movement and you can FEEL it breath, yet it meets wind and weather head-on. An amazing combination of 3 materials in perfect unison. The light, minimalist grid fleece lining provides just enough insulation and the precise placement of breathable, stretch fabric encourages movement in every direction. While pretty true-to-size, it's low-profile, trim fit to be sure. In a nutshell, designed for high output, surprisingly light, comfortable, protective, and breathable. Hard to believe it's 14.1 oz...feels like 8. (note: I have the women's version but the technical design, materials, and purpose are the same)
