    Details

    Durability without the tarp effect.

    Built to handle life in big mountain ranges like the Colorado Rockies and interior British Columbia, the Arc'teryx Whiteline Men's Rush Jacket is a sweet little combo of utter toughness and luxurious comfort in a guaranteed waterproof, guaranteed breathable hardshell. Whether you're ripping pow in Canada or taking on steeps in Colorado, you'll be in no hurry to get inside when you have this storm-busting jacket.

    By using two different densities of Gore-Tex Pro fabric, the Rush jacket provides durable weather protection in a comfortable, flexible shell. Sure, it'd be cheaper to buy a blue tarp from the hardware store, but how well can you layer under that flapping plastic, let alone creep quietly through freshly fallen snow? In addition to being soft and quiet, Gore-Tex Pro is designed for bouts of intense activity with plenty of rest in between. When you're skinning up a steep section, the fabric breathes so you don't drown in a puddle of your own sweat. If you're stopping for lunch, photo ops, or a quick potty break, Gore-Tex Pro won't leave you a cold, shivering mess.

    • Hard-wearing shell for big-mountain skiing and snowboarding
    • Durable Gore-Tex Pro shell is highly waterproof and breathable
    • Fully sealed seams prevent any moisture from seeping inside jacket
    • Hood is helmet compatible for added coverage during storm days
    • Underarm vents let body heat escape while hiking or skinning
    • Integrated powder skirt protects underlying layers from snow
    • Regular fit with e3D patterning for better mobility in the mountains
    • Arc'teryx uses the mountains of B.C. to inform its clothing designs
    • Item #ARC00PH

    Bomber!

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: XL
    • Height: 5'9"
    • Weight: 180lbs

    I bought this jacket for my husband, and he is obsessed. It is his first Arc'teryx piece and now I think I have him hooked. Not only is it high quality, but it is super durable and bomb proof. In the deepest of pow days, he is staying dry thanks to Gore Tex Pro.
    He mainly uses this for backcountry touring, but also has used it casually or in rainy situations just knowing it will keep him dry and not make him feel muggy since he is able to dump heat out with the pit zips.
    It does fit true to size, but he loves his jackets a bit more loose fitting, so he can layer and whatnot, so he sized with an XL and it gives him the perfect fit for some swagger alone, or room to fit a few layers underneath, even a puffy on cold days! He is 5'9 and 180 for reference.
    I definitely recommend this jacket for anyone looking for a bombproof shell, it is the ultimate shell!

    Nice Fit

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit: True to size

    Great jacket overall. I like that it is a somewhat trimmer fit (trimmer than the Sabre but not as trim as the Iser, which I tried first and found too tight in the lower torso). I wish there was a little more room at the top of the jacket when zipped around my chin, but otherwise great fit.

    I've skied Utah and Colorado with this jacket and it has yet to fail me. I layer it with the Arc'teryx Atom LT and a baselayer. I never got materially cold.

    First Arcteryx

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Size Bought: Small
    • Height: 5'9"
    • Weight: 165lbs

    This was my first Arcteryx jacket. I'm 5'9 165lbs and bought the Small. It is a slim fitting jacket so if you like the baggy look i would definitely size up. Just got back from Squaw and Jackson Hole and couldn't be happier with the purchase. It is very high quality and gets the job done in very high wind and blizzard like conditions.

    Great update

      This newest model of the Rush is a great update, making the jacket my new go to. Previous versions were too short and too tight, but sizing up was too baggy. This new fit is long, not too baggy, and made of the same tough gore-tex throughout. The new cord adjustments are top of the line, and the fit for me is literally as good as it gets with Arcteryx. I tried all the other ski jackets, but this one topped them. Collar could be a little taller but it does offer enough room to zip with with a helmet and the hood can be down still. If you didn't think the Rush was for you before because of fit, give this version a look. The full 80d gore is a boost too, no more hybrid construction with a lower denier gore.

      Drinking the Kool-Aid

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Small
      • Height: 5'8"
      • Weight: 160lbs

      This is the best ski jacket I've ever owned. The fit is on the slimmer side, but allows freedom of movement. If you prefer a baggy fit, I recommend sizing up. The Gore-Tex Pro shell keeps wind and water out while breathing well. The vents and pockets are well placed and easy to access. The powder skirt attaches to Arcteryx pants to keep wind / snow out. It is very well made, and Arcteryx stands by their product with a lifetime warranty.

      Bomber jacket for all conditions!

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

      Like one would expect with Arc'teryx the Rush is fantastic! The fit and finish are truly second to none and with the durable nature of Gore-tex Pro Shell this thing will basically last as long as you take care of it. I like the regular fit for laying and the slightly longer length throughout the shell is great. As a firm believer in the philosophy of you get what you pay for the Rush works very well for me!

      Bulletproof

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: L
      • Height: 6'0"
      • Weight: 130lbs

      Bulletproof might be a bit of an overstatement, but man this jacket sure feels like it! The N80p-X goretex pro ensures that any stray trees wont tap you back and rip your jacket. The regular fit and optimal vent positions keep you nice and cool on the skin up as well as the ride down.

      Id recommend this jacket to any serious skier with money to blow and a love for meticulously crafted gear.

      Best snowboarding jacket I’ve ever owned

        Love the fit and look of this jacket! Sizing runs right on. I originally ordered the two toned blue jacket but upon receiving the colors looked different to me. Ended up ordering the red.

        Wearable Fortress

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times
        • Size Bought: medium
        • Height: 5'11"
        • Weight: 165lbs

        Super solid shell, impermeable to the weather. Very similar to the Arcteryx Theta AR but with a longer cut and a powder skirt.

        Love this jacket

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
        • Fit: True to size
        • Size Bought: Medium
        • Height: 5'11"
        • Weight: 180lbs

        If there is one area where I spend money on gear its on hardshell jackets as nothing can ruin a trip quicker. Overall I love this jacket, the material quality and attention to useful details like the size of the hood and it's adjustability are hard to find from other companies. The fit of the Rush jacket is also much more traditional as opposed to the Sabre which has a baggy fit with a long body. I am 5'11 180 lbs with an athletic build and wear a medium. The medium doesn't feel baggy on it's own but has enough room that I can wear a down jacket under it on cold days.

        Sensational Shell

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
        • Fit: True to size
        • Size Bought: Medium
        • Height: 5'11"
        • Weight: 173lbs

        I love this jacket. I'm a shade under 6', a little over 170 lbs. and the medium is a perfect fit; works with a thin Mountain Hardware jacket and base layers or a medium weight Arc down jacket with two or more layers beneath. I bought it in the Oak Madras color, which is both classy and stands out...so my two kids can find me! I ski on northern Vermont's 'dust and crust' on COLD days and the Rush slams the door on the cold and wind. I really like the fit - athletic yet not restrictive. It's also a great jacket to throw on under a fleece for a trip to the grocery store with a fleece underneath. I got great value and tremendous service from Karen at Backcountry and I'm so happy with this purchase. I will have this jacket for many, many years and it was absolutely a great investment. I bomb in this thing!

        Initial Assessment looks good.

        • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
        • Fit: True to size
        • Size Bought: Medium
        • Height: 6'1"
        • Weight: 190lbs

        I just got the Arc'Teryx Rush Jacket in Magmatic in the mail and I am pumped to take it and put it through some punishment. I will post another review after a few weeks of regular use but I wanted to get some initial thoughts down.

        Fit: I am 6'1" and 190 lbs. I am 43" around the chest, 34" around the waist 40" around the hips and 35" on each arm and I ended up with a medium. Based on the sizing chart I was a medium in some categories and a large in others. I bought both a medium and a large and would recommend doing so if you are at all close to my size. After putting on all of my gear intended for the coldest of days (base layer, beacon, flannel shirt, Patagonia Nano Puff vest, Arc'Teryx Cerium LT Hoodie, Arc'Teryx Rush Hard Shell, Helmet, Patagonia Powder bowl Pants and a climbing harness) the Medium ended up fitting me the best, especially when adding a back pack and harness on top of the jacket. The Large was fine and could work however, there seemed to be a lot of extra material which bunched up under back pack straps and especially under the waist strap of my harness. Don't get me wrong though, with all of this gear there is no room to spare in the jacket. I can still fill the pockets with gloves, map, GPS, or a radio with no issue but that is it. No room for a water bottle unless it is flat (platypus type). Given that I run hot and that 90% of the time I only wear a flannel and a vest under the jacket the medium just made sense for me. Also I now regularly use a radio and have resorted to storing my beacon in my ski pants to avoid signal interference which has freed up some space in the jacket.

        Functionality: This jacket has all the right features that I was looking for. A pocket on the arm for my ski pass, a powder skirt, helmet compatible hood, and two long deep pockets on either side of the jacket that are accessible while wearing a pack. The pockets run almost the entire length of the chest and could easily fit a long folded up map, water bottle, radio, or gloves. The collar of the jacket is cut high and will cover most of the face if zipped all the way up. With a simple shoulder shrug the collar comes up even higher to just under the goggles - perfect for the lift ride up. The color (magmata) definitely pops against the snow and adds a ton of visibility. It seems that Arc'Teryx has really nailed some colors that seem to get brighter as visibility decreases which I think is a bonus. The jacket also stuffs into the hood to the size of a small football which makes packing it way while skinning up to the next line a snap.

        Price: Not sure why this jacket is 50 - 75 dollars more than the Sabre which is all N80P Gore-tex (not just the shoulders) and has a little bit of insulation/similar features. In the end I sprung for the Rush for it's packability, weight, and I'll be honest - the color.

        Cons: 700 dollars!!!!! I know that you get all of the above cool features in a bombproof construction that fits like it was made by my Hong Kong tailor but wow that's a lot of money. I started this jacket search about a month ago and actually bought the Patagonia Powder Bowl jacket. In the end I took it back because the only pocket it had was two small hand pockets and a weird chest pocket that is really only good for a phone or anything else you don't want to access with gloves on. I love Patagonia, they took it back with no questions and even gave me some stickers. They just need to up their functionality a bit and I am right there with them. Which brings me to customer service. Back Country is great. Arc'Teryx leaves a bit to be desired and while they do take care of you, turn around is long.

        All in all, I am happy with the fit/function of the jacket and I look forward to getting out this week to see how it stands up to the high price tag.



        Creme de la Creme of Ski Jackets

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
        • Fit: True to size
        • Size Bought: Large
        • Height: 5'11"
        • Weight: 175lbs

        I'm 5'11" and 175lbs with an thicker athletic build and typically prefer a large in ski jackets. I was looking for a jacket that could do it all; skiing inbounds in the nastiest weather that Old Man Winter can throw at me, touring all day long, and everything in between. I also prefer a looser fitting jacket and this caught my eye, haven't regretted a dime spent towards it.

        Pros:
        - It really is a bomber material in terms of both durability and waterproofing. I've spent a few days out when it was absolutely dumping out and hovering around 32/33 degrees and this lives up to both the Gore Tex and Arc'teryx name.
        - I personally have found the large is definitely baggy on me, which I like for layering purposes. Some reviews below say its a trim fit, it doesn't seem remotely that way. The expedition fit is exactly that, meant to layer and room for it.
        - I like the pocket situation for the most part. There's two large side chest pockets that are plenty big, i'll stuff a pair of gloves in if I need to take mine off one the chairlift. The pass pocket is nice too if you spend anytime resort skiing. There is an inner chest pocket, its sort of mediocre though as an iPhone 6 w/ a Lifeproof case doesn't fit. I would dig an outside chest pocket. Can't win them all I suppose.
        - Oversized helmet does what it needs to on storm days.
        - I've toured now several days in this jacket and it rocks for breathability. I'll tour in the shell alone with a base layer as I tend to run hot and never feel that I get too sweaty.

        Cons:
        - Other than the pocket situation described above, honestly not much.

        Overall, if you're looking for a bomber waterproof jacket that you'll be skiing both backcountry and resort skiing in, look no further. It will be a larger cut to account for layering. If you have any other questions on the jacket or would like help putting in an order, don't hesitate giving a shout to my direct line 801.204.4547 or email cojohnson@backcountry.com.

        BOMBproof

        • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

        Awesome shell for skiing. The fit is a hair on the 'Euro' side, but it still have great range of motion and all the features you need in a ski jacket.

        Initial Impressions

        • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
        • Fit: True to size

        I got this as a gift, and was super impressed. Super durable ArcTeryx design, the zippers are bomber and still easy to work quickly. As far as fit goes, I had my bf try it on to get an idea on sizing- he is 5'10 and 160lb and was in the Medium. The fit was nice- easy to wear as a casual piece, and also had enough room to layer up for the cold days. All in all, another quality piece from ArcT!

        Happy

        • Fit: True to size
        • Size Bought: Large
        • Height: 6'0"
        • Weight: 183lbs

        Just received the jacket in the mail. Typical Arc'teryx amazing quality and attention to details. Beautiful vibrant color(adriatic blue). I will write a follow up review after testing it on the slopes but for now wanted to chime in for those who wonder about what size to go with.
        I am 6' tall and at 183 lbs the jacket fits great and has just enough room for few layers. I tried it with Atom jacket plus a fleece and it felt perfect. I do own Arc'teryx Stingray from 2013 in Medium and the same combination of layers feel a bit constraining . Highly recommended

        Rush to Higher Elevations

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
        • Fit: True to size
        • Size Bought: Medium
        • Height: 6'1"
        • Weight: 185lbs

        When the wind is howling, the snow blowing sideways, and temps drop to single digits, I have never been let down by my Rush Jacket. I have used this jacket for both backcountry touring and resort skiing for the past couple seasons and it still looks brand new even though I have worn it close to 100 times. My favorite features:

        - Ventilation and breathability help when ascending in bad weather

        - Reinforced hood and shoulders protect from pack abrasions and general wear and tear

        - Expedition fit in Medium fits my tall, skinny frame well with appropriate layers underneath (including my Atom LT in Large)

        Arc'teryx is known for its craftsmanship and the Rush lives up to the hype. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a winter jacket to protect them from the harshest of elements.

        Feel free to shoot me any questions on this jacket, other Arc'teryx products or anything ski related.

        Rush to Higher Elevations

        Hi! I'm just below 6'3'', around 200lbs and wondering if i should go for L or XL. I don't have a chance to try it on any nearby my hometown. Looking for slightly loose fit with space for at least 3 layers, down included. What would You suggest?

        Love it

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times
        • Fit: Runs large
        • Size Bought: large
        • Height: 5'8"
        • Weight: 195lbs

        Just picked this jacket up and retired my stingray. I wish it had a little bit of a lining but it runs the biggest of the coats. For me running large makes layering easier and doesn't bunch up when you have a hip belt strapped. I wear a 45" suit jacket with a 33" waist. This fits the best for people with wide shoulders.

        Hi, what’s the difference between the rush and the theta AR? I see the collar is a little different and it has a powder skirt. Looking for something for back country touring. It’s either these or a Patagonia pow slayer.
        Cheers

        Hey Shannon, there's a few differences between the two. The Rush has a 80 denier (tougher fabric) and has a powder skirt, where the Theta has 40d for the body and some reinforced 80d areas and no powder skirt. Pockets are different also - they really do have somewhat of a different intended use. The Theta AR is more ice climbing and (ski) mountaineering oriented than the Rush. If you're planning on using it for backcountry touring, I'd personally recommend the Rush jacket! I personally have a Rush jacket myself and think its absolutely bomber - if you have any questions you can reach me at my direct line 801.204.4547 or email cojohnson@backcountry.com and I'd be happy to help!

        Unanswered Question

        Any idea how the regular fit compares to the old arcteryx sizing? Use to have a stingray that was labeled as athletic fit which I think was the regular fit st the time.
