Arc'teryx Squamish Hooded Jacket - Men's


is this the old gossamer or new tyono fabric?

Each of our Squamish hoodies should have the new Tyono fabric - as verified with inventory.


Does anyone have or have seen the Azul color in person? It looks borderline purple but we all know how tricky colors can be online. Thanks in advance


Does the hood *actually* fit over a climbing helmet? By this I mean, when the hood is over your helmet and you zip up, does the fabric stay at your chin?

Hi Icychap, The hood is helmet compatible. Depending on your head/neck shape and helmet size and model it is hard to say for certain whether it would stay right at your chin, but it should be close!


Hi, I am 5' 9'', 41chest and 33 arm. I am going to use the jacket for rock climbing, so I may need to wear it over some layers. Would you recommend a small or a medium? Thanks!

I'm 5'7", 40 chest and 32 arm and have worn this jacket in both a small and a medium. The small has enough room for just an r1-type layer beneath it and the medium has enough room for base, r1, and ~maybe~ an ultralight puffy layer, (which would be compressed a bit by the squamish). I usually wear my puffy over this when belaying and if the weather has a chance of getting really gnarly I bring a full-on technical shell as well. I suggest getting a medium for your height and other vitals, and I don't think even a large is going to have enough room to stack more than a couple layers underneath; it's a very athletic, form-fitting cut and not really designed to go over thick layers. The squamish is by far my most used piece of gear and finds a place in my pack year-round, it's just so versatile, light, and effective at what it does there's no reason to ever leave it behind.


Center back length?

29 inches, medium


We might be talking semantics here but would this jacket be called a softshell? If not, what are the differences? Looking for something windproof that would fall under softshell to add to my alpine kit

I wouldn't really classify it a softshell. Softshells are going to be a large percentage polyester and/or have some elastane to give the garment stretch. This is 100% nylon so it won't stretch as much. I would suggest the gamma lt or outdoor research ferrosi hoody if you are looking for a softshell. I have the ferrosi and it is a fantastic jacket!


The picture of the Iron Anvil color, seems...

The picture of the Iron Anvil color, seems to pretty clearly be a women's instead of a men's. Is that the case?

Hey dp2113306511, Thanks for your question. No, that is not the case. This item is a mens jacket.

Thanks Grant, but that picture you linked to is not the same picture that is shown above on this page, at least in my browser. The zipper is lower and the shape of the torso has a more feminine shape. (Just in the iron anvil color)

Yeah, I am backing PoorMan on this one at least as far as the picture goes. That photo is clearly a women's cut. However, that is just a mistake by our photo team. The actual inventory that would ship out if you were to purchase that variant would in fact be the men's option. I will make sure that heads roll for this one! Actually I will just see if somebody will swap the photo out.


What are the differences between this 2014...

What are the differences between this 2014 version and the 2013 version, which costs $10 more.

As far as I know, the 2013 uses a 20d fabric and the 2014 uses a 30d fabric, which is heavier but more durable. The 2014 is also cut slimmer.
