    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

    Well made, but HUGE sizing

    • Height: 6'1"
    • Weight: 180lbs

    I'm 6' 1", 180 lbs, and wear a size 44L (monkey length arms) and I was swimming in the size large that I purchased from every point. My Arc'teryx Iser jacket, by comparison, fits perfectly.

    Awesome Jacket!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 6'0"
    • Weight: 175lbs

    I love this jacket. Perfect fit and a really nice jacket! I wore this all last winter season and loved it. I did everything from Backcountry skiing, to casually wearing to and from work during a heavy storm. The N80p-X GORE-TEX Pro 3L Gore Tex fabric will definitely keep you dry in all conditions. I'm 6' and a size Medium fit me perfect. Plenty of room to layer and not overly baggy when worn by itself. Highly recommended!

    Top Quality

    This is my second Rush jacket. When I first held up through the very heavy ski usage. Excellent customer service.

    My one comment is the jacket is slightly snug and it can be a challenge to layer for very cold weather.

    Best shell I've owned

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'11"
    • Weight: 155lbs

    I've got in about 20 ski days this season with this jacket and slapped countless bushes and branches at medium/high speed, and this jacket still is as good as new. I'm actually slightly shocked that it has no wear and still performs flawlessly. It has never once come close to wetting out - I was bone dry after skiing in the rain for a few hours. The jacket also has all the features I need for resort skiing and nothing I don't. The chest pockets are especially nice - they are very roomy and durable.

    Spacious Ski Wear

    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'11"
    • Weight: 170lbs

    I got to take this out once about a week ago in some pretty inclement weather. Knowing Gore-Tex, I was dry all day, while the jacket did a great job blocking the wind. Pockets, are easily accessible, and the hood fits great over a helmet.

    Sizing is pretty spot on. I am 5'11" 170 lbs on a good day and I bought a medium. Has plenty of room inside the jacket for 1-2 good layers, and the upper portion of my bibs.

    Great shell

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size

    Loved wearing this jacket on the mountain for some snowboarding! I ordered a medium and I'm 5'1", 150 pounds and the fit was perfect! The sleeves were a little long, but I liked the extra coverage. The gaiters were just the right size and at the end of the day, I was unzipping my jacket because I was so warm!

    Great fit

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 6'0"
    • Weight: 165lbs

    I had the Arcteryx Theta AR and it had a really awkward fit around the shoulders so I resold it. I was using an old north face and finally gave in and bought my dream jacket. The Rush fits super well. I love the inside pocket setup paired with my BCA walkie-talkie. I wear it everyday here in Steamboat Springs Colorado riding the mountain. When I am ripping through Aspen Trees on a pow day or I am walking my dog I grab the Rush everytime. Adding wind protection and snow protection makes hanging out at the dog park bearable in the winter. I got the purple color and I get compliments on it all the time. An old lady told me not to wait until I am old to wear purple and I am taking her advice. The medium fits me perfectly and has plenty of room for a puffy jacket underneath. I would definitely size down on Arcteryx Jackets, unless you like having a huge jacket and want to look like you came out of an early 2000’s snowboard video.

    The ultimate winter jacket

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: XL
    • Height: 6'2"
    • Weight: 215lbs

    The Rush is the king of winter. With a mobile and comfortable gore-tex pro material. Bomber wind proof abilities and the promise of staying dry all day no matter the conditions. With a regular fit, so that you can layer well with the piece for those really cold days on the mountain.
    Water tight zips and a powder skirt makes it the needed jacket for all pursuits.

    Great Jacket

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Height: 6'1"
    • Weight: 190lbs

    I have this jacket and the sabre. Both are great jackets. This one is more go too as it is just a little bit slimmer fitting and I like the goretex on it better than the sabre. This is by far the best ski jacket i have ever owned!

    Josh, I'm replacing a damaged Arc-teryx Stingray jacket this season. I'm torn between the Sabre & Rush. Do you mind elaborating on some of the reasons you prefer the Rush, and the Gore-tex Pro, please? I charge the mtn hard and run hot as it is...I'm thinking the Gore-tex Pro's breathability might be more appropriate. I had a Large in the Stingray. It's fit was sloppy imo (sleeves too long, chest & pits baggy). I'm 6'1, 185-190 lbs. The Medium seems to be a more true, slimmer fit.

    Josh, if you can get back to Drew D (below), great! The Stingray jacket was more similar to the Sabre with the brushed interior but a trimmer fit, more geared to resort riding. The Rush has the Gore-Tex pro #-layer fabric without the added brushed liner, so it is easier to slide on/off over layers. Also lighter weight. I would suggest ordering the medium if he didn't like the large in the Stingray. Sounds like he had plenty of length in the arms for a tall dude! :)

    I never tried the Sabre but I had a similar 3 layer Gore-Tex jacket with the brushed interior. I now have the Rush jacket with Gore-Tex Pro. If you run hot like I do, I would recommend the Pro. It is noticeably more breathable. I still overheat in the Rush jacket but it seems like I don’t overheat as much and I found myself comfortable again at the end of the chairlift ride up the mountain. It’s not a huge difference between regular Gore-Tex and Gore-Tex Pro but there is some difference I would say. You will not confuse Gore-Tex Pro with a non-membrane soft shell but it still works better than regular Gore.

    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

    • 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

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

        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.
