    Put your puffy underneath this storm-proof beast and let the good times ride.

    All winter long, you're on high alert for the next big storm, the next refresher, or the next snow-stealing powder hound who crosses through the fall line. In the Arc'teryx Women's Sentinel Jacket, your tours of duty through storms are warm and dry events. Guaranteed waterproof and breathable three-layer GoreTex Pro technology ensures your ski-hungry bod stays dry when the skies are spewing snow and you're hiking to the lookout. A relaxed cut lets you put your puffy underneath when temps nosedive. 

    Being the first in line when ski patrol opens the world's best bowl matters to you. Traveling the traverse and side-stepping with speed gets your sweat going. Open the underarm vents to dump excess heat without losing your primo position in line. As you wait for the sign to change from Closed to Open, snap the powder skirt together to keep the snow spray from sneaking up your back. The hood holds your helmet so you don't have to choose between casing your cranium and a dry dome. When it's dumping and your enjoying fresh tracks every time, the laminated brim diverts a bit of the weather away from your face.

    • Gore-Tex Pro enhances waterproof, breathable protection
    • Thin, three-layer construction is light and packable
    • Women-specific, athletic fit designed for layering and mobility

    Bombproof

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

    This was something I picked out for my sister, who had only been snowboarding a handful of times but was looking for something that was non-restrictive and allowed for plenty of movement while she was clipping/unclipping from her bindings. After the first day, she was blown away by how well it protected against the snow and the wind, without any issue with over heating, or being too cold.

    Nothing Better

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

    I just got this for my mom for Christmas, she tried on many different jackets for resort skiing and finally settled on this one. She loved the fit of it as it's not super baggy but allows for plenty of range of motion. The helmet compatible hood is her favorite feature, it fits over hers and has plenty of space so she can turn her head while she's going big at the Bird. I'd definitely recommend this jacket to any lady resort shredder in need of a jacket to last them the rest of their lives.

    Great ski jacket

    • Height: 6'1"
    • Weight: 190lbs

    I bought this jacket for my wife as a ski jacket. She loves it. its keeps her dry and the fit is just right. Slim but has enough room for layering.

    I went for it!

    • Fit: True to size

    I was trying a bunch of other Gore-tex shells but just ended returning them due to the fit! I finally went with my gut and bought this bad boy! It fits perfect! I am so excited to put it to use and I know it is going to last years! I bought the Rhassoul color and I absolutely love it!

    Finally Splurged

    So Worth it! Just finally tested it out last weekend - the best and worth the money! My fiance rocks all Arcteryx Ski Gear so I had to jump on board after he raved about it. No Regrets! Baja blue is the best.

    In Love

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'9"
    • Weight: 130lbs

    I bought this jacket in the Crimson and it is gorgeous in person. The fit is great - its flattering but still has room for a puffy and a couple layers underneath. When fully zipped it goes up high enough to keep my neck warm without a draft when skiing with a helmet, but it's not too restricting where I can't turn my head. It's amazing quality and I can't wait to wear it for years to come!

    <3

    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'8"
    • Weight: 130lbs

    So I've dreamed about this coat for three years. It was everything I could've wanted. I got the medium since I tried a small on in a local store and barely zipped it up, with layers it would have been too small. I got the baja blue which actually came a little darker than I was expecting. I love the look though. It's definitely to my fingers in the arms, but once I have gloves on I don't think it will matter. It's a great jacket and I'm excited to have an inside pocket for my phone and other items.

    A Beloved Favorite

    The Sentinel Jacket from Arc'teryx is back, and it's better than ever. Durable Gore-Tex Pro construction provides lightweight weatherproofing, while pit zips let you dump heat quickly and efficiently. The relaxed fit is new this year, which means the Sentinel is now a bit more fitted than in years past but still allows for plenty of room to move and layer underneath. If you're looking for the perfect shell to go from the resort to the backcountry with you, this is the one!

    second season and still great

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: XL

    Great gear, great cut, great quality. I spent more money than I wanted on this jacket and have never regretted it!

    Sentinel Jacket - the BEST Shell Jacket

    I wear this as my daily driver for skiing. Love the supple feeling of the fabric - Gore-Tex Pro with a brushed liner makes it feel softer and less crunchy. It holds up well against skiing 100+ days/season.

    AWFUL quality

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I wont be buying Arcteryx products again - my husband and I bought 3 products, one pants and two jackets and had problems with all of them.
    We dont want refunds we just want gear that works. As we live in Mexico City it is really difficult to return stuff. The quality control is poor. My jacket zipper broke when I was pulling it up in a gentle/normal fashion - after two weeks of use. My husbands jacket got a whole in the lining and the buckle that keeps your paints off fell off my sentinel pants. 3/3 very bad experience
    Over all the gear is poorly designed and doesnt have good quality control now that it is no longer made in Canada and all made in China.
    Dont bother buying it if you want it to last for more than two weeks.

    Haven't used yet

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    Picked this up in preparation for a trip in March / April, hoping it works as well as it looks!

    Black Sapphire = Navy Blue

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: medium
    • Height: 5'5"
    • Weight: 130lbs

    I thought this was going to be black, but its navy. Other than that I absolutely love it. It had everything I wanted in a shell: powder skirt, arm pocket for a pass, interior pockets for a phone, pit zips, and cuffs that would easily fit over my mittens, and a hood that would easily fit over a helmet. And most importantly look good. This jacket is all of that. It's not too long like may other shells I've been trying on. I'm 5-5, 130 lbs and wearing this over a Flylow Betty down jacket. I purchased the medium and it easily layers, and best of all I don't look like a stuffed sausage. I was very hesitant about the price, but I have a feeling this will last for years.

    Hey Liz - Sorry about the color issue! I agree - I wish companies stopped trying to be so creative in their color descriptions and just spelled it out in crayola terms ;)
    Glad to hear the coat has everything you need though and that you're super happy with it!
    And yes, it will absolutely last for many years to come - plus Arc'teryx has a lifetime warranty on their products so should something happen, you know you're going to be well taken care of :)

    Your Gearhead,
    Brittni

    Best Shell

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I LOVE this jacket. It's my go-to jacket for the winter or when I'm not in the mood to deal with rain or wind as it will keep you super dry! I pair this with the Atom Lt for when the temps dip and it keeps me nice and happy when I'm snowboarding.

    Great Quality and Fitting Jacket

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'6"
    • Weight: 130lbs

    This Arc'Teryx jacket is exactly what you would expect from them. It is the top tier of quality and features. Water and wind have no chance against it. My girlfriend uses this anywhere from hikes to back country days and is always her go to outer layer. Taped seams, a big hood and pockets are all well designed and easy to use. Cannot go wrong with this jacket for MANY seasons of use.

    Imitation Pro

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'3"
    • Weight: 120lbs

    This jacket is awesome! Not only is it wind proof, comfortable, and layer-able for the coldest of days, but I got so many compliments on the jacket: "you look like a pro skier!" It might be my professional skiing abilities, but I'm blaming it on the jacket ;)

    Practically Perfect

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'9"

    I bought this for a friend who had the following to share:

    "This was the first time I purchased a technical shell and I am extremely happy with my choice. The Sentinel is lightweight, wind and weather-resistant and made with ventilation in mind. It is not intended for insulation, so I purchased it along with an Arc'teryx Atom LT, and together with a minimal base layer, this combination keeps me comfortable in cold temperatures. The hood fits easily over my helmet, should weather require extra protection. This jacket also integrates with the Sentinel pants, and includes a powder skirt. Finally, let's talk color: I purchased the Sentinel in the new Cerulean color and it is GORGEOUS! The pictures on-line do not do this color justice. It is much more vibrant in person. Perhaps, the only downside is the pocket-design. I was hopeful the jacket would have various pocket sizes to accommodate more ski gear. I do appreciate a laminated pocket to protect my phone and other items that may require added protection from moisture. Overall, I could not be more pleased with this jacket and highly recommend it."

    Great Adventure jacket!

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

    This jacket is exactly what I was looking for. There are a few reasons why I chose it. Obviously I wanted this jacket to be breathable yet very waterproof. So far the Gor-Tex Pro 3 layer has not let me down! The length is great! I like my shells to be a bit longer then what is usually offered in hard shell jackets. Also, I didn't want this jacket to be too heavy but I did want just a small amount of lining for extra warmth. The inside lining in this jacket is very soft. It provides just the right amount of extra warmth and comfort in case I need it. It is a very flattering fit yet still provides enough room for my synthetic or down mid-layer. To me this is a pretty big investment, so I wanted to get a color that I knew I would like for a few years. I went with the Marianas. It’s a very deep, dark purple that goes well with the rest of my ski gear. I wanted to invest in a jacket that would last for a while, and I found it! I'm super excited for all of my future adventures in this jacket!

    Update: After using this jacket for a couple of months I do have to update one thing.... I still love this jacket and am incredibly happy with it however I do believe I can now only give it a 4 because of the powder skirt. The powder skirt will only attach to Arc'teryx pants, and only pants with the Slide 'n Loc™ snap closure attachment. Don't get me wrong, if you have/plan on buying the pants then this feature is fantastic! This only started being a problem for me with all of the incredible powder days we had in January. If you do not plan on buying Arc'teryx pants then you may want to make sure that the powder skirt will stay down when you're really moving out there on the slopes/in the backcountry. Or you could just purchase a pair of bibs like I did!

    total disappointment

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: xs
    • Height: 5'3"
    • Weight: 105lbs

    -a hard fabric that is not comfortable and is quite noisy
    -given the price point, would expect the interior compartment to be more thoughtful
    -as a shell, the cut is not comfortable for layering inside
    -bought a lot of items at backcountry.com and have to unfortunately say this one is the worst

    I do not find it noisy or stiff. It is a soft shell type material with hard shell characteristics. I am 5'5' and 112 lbs and I ordered the XS. It fits well with a mid weight layering puffy underneath. The XS is quite short. It integrates with (snaps into) the sentinel pant and the system seems to work well. Without the integrated pants, it would be too short! The small is quite a bit longer but voluminous otherwise on me.

    happy skiier!

    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: large

    I purchased the 2014-2015 sentinel jacket with some colorblocking on the shoulders. It's just a shell with no interior insulation layer, but I knew that when I purchased it, and purchased an arcteryx atom lt jacket to wear underneath. I'm pretty hourglass/pear shaped, so I went up a size so that it would fit without pulling across my hips. I was pleased that it's perfectly waterproof and that I wasnt even damp after skiing in heavy lake-effect snow and grauplel. The front zipper comes up HIGH and covers my entire neck gaitor, although I do still wear a neck gaitor for the fleecy comfort, as this has just a minimal zipper cover. The hood fits over my big round helmet (smith gage) and has a stiff visor on the top. The pit zips are long and easy to wrangle- I just hold the cuff with my arm up in the air to hold the fabric taut when pulling the zips. The pocket situation is sparse- I usually put my phone in my atom pocket and then kept my credit card and id in the tiny inner chest pocket in this jacket. I do like the left arm pocket here for an rfid resort pass. I skied a lot of days that started at 15 degrees and warmed up to 28 or 32, and was pretty happy in a base tshirt or tank, atom lt, and this jacket, opening up the zips later in the day. It's long enough to cover most of my butt, and pretty loose/boxy. If you want girly or cute, get it in a cute color- I'd usually prefer warm and dry over fashionable.

    I was thinking of taking this jacket on a...

    I was thinking of taking this jacket on a trip known to have constant rain downpours, will this jacket keep me as dry as a rain jacket would?
