    Off-piste or on-piste.

    Ski the resort in heavy snowfall then skin the backcountry on the next bluebird, powdery day in the Arc'teryx Men's Tantalus Jacket. Gore-Tex gives this thin, three-layer shell waterproof protection for snowy days, and breathability for skinning in the sun. Fully taped seams enhance waterproofing by preventing a single snowflake from seeping through.

    Arc'teryx fitted the Tantalus with an e3D design and gusseted underarms so you can ski in this slim-fitting jacket freely. This jacket also features a snap-down Slide 'n Loc jacket-to-pant interface with Arc'teryx's Sabre and Stinger ski pants. There are adjustments at the helmet-compatible StormHood, hem, and cuffs to seal out the snow.

    Second Tantalus I have bought

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Small
    • Height: 5'9"
    • Weight: 155lbs

    This is the second Arc’teryx Tantalus that I have purchased. I use this jacket for days in the Backcountry. It’s not as light and thin as other high output jackets, but works day in and day out exactly how I want it to work. It has higher abrasion materials on the shoulders which helps prevent wear and tear when wearing a pack. This is one of the most underrated shells that Arc’teryx makes and lasts a long time.

    Terrible Face Fabric Durability

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Small
    • Height: 5'10"
    • Weight: 155lbs

    I was super excited when I bought this jacket and I've used it about five times. Color is great, is trim fit, and is very protective from the elements.

    However, there is a major issue with the durability of the face fabric. I kept my cellphone in my right pocket and after my very first day of on-piste snowboarding there was a small hole in the outer face fabric where the bottom corner of my phone was resting in my pocket. The next few times I took the jacket out I put my cellphone in the left pocket and later saw subtle, thin lines of degrading fabric matching the edges/size of my phone.

    The pockets are extremely shallow so don't put anything other than maybe a few credit cards or cash or something. Maybe something soft like gloves would work. I have an android phone with a case and basically since the pocket is so thin that while snowboarding the phone got pushed against the outer fabric and created these series of small lines which are basically the beginnings of a rip in the fabric.

    I had it sent in for warranty and they said this is just "coincidence" and all they can do is patch the hole and that's it. I've worn plenty of other shells that have functional pockets and never had any such issues with the fabric. It is a massive shame and let down that this amazingly expensive piece of gear can't hold anything in its pockets.

    If you don't put anything big in the pockets you'll be fine. Don't take this through the trees or backcountry as it's likely to get scratched up and develop nicks and rips and holes quickly. Otherwise it's a great jacket if you're a careful, occasional, on-piste vacationer. Don't be sad when "coincidences" cause "normal wear and tear" on the first or second day you're using your jacket.

    Great Jacket

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: small
    • Height: 5'6"
    • Weight: 150lbs

    Just back from the "storm of the century" in Tahoe. Wore the Tantalus shell in 30-40 mph winds at Northstar and the jacket was terrific. High collar protected my face and neck. Storm hood fits perfectly over my helmet. Expensive but worth it.


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

    I got this jacket for my dad for Christmas and this is what he had to say about it: This is a killer jacket. It is totally waterproof and keeps you warm and dry. I used it to go snow shoeing in 2+ feet of fresh snow. It kept the snow, which was falling, on the outside of my under layers. When I starting to get warm, I unzipped the “under the arm vents” which kept a good air flow through the jacket when I needed it. The power skirt keeps the snow from going up your back. I would recommend this jacket to any serous winter sports person looking for a top-notch water proof shell. I can't wait to take it skiing.

    This jacket is bomb proof

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Small
    • Height: 5'8"
    • Weight: 150lbs

    I own three shells from the 2016 Arc'Teryx collection, the Tantalus which I am reviewing here, the Procline , and the Lithic Comp. all three jackets are different, but offer the best option for specific situations. The Tantalus is my go to storm day jacket. It is much heavier than the Procline and the Lithic Comp, and does not have a stretchy breathable soft shell back panel like the other two. That is okay, because sometimes I ride lifts when it is cold and snowy and need a jacket to keep me out of the elements. This jacket acomplishes that. The cut is similar to the other jackets in Arc'Teryx's white line. It is not quite the perfect jacket for touring in the Backcountry, but would work if you don't mind taking some layers off on the up. It would work when touring on a cold stormy day, or a day where you are constantly waiting for your partner to make it to the top. Quite simply this is my go to jacket for stormy or cold resort days.

    Great coat built to LAST

      This coat is diggity dope. Not a single complaint with using this guy and have been shredding with it all season. The gortex holds up to anything and in really wet conditions it's great to see water beading up and shedding from the coat to know why I paid a little extra for the completely waterproof goretex. I also really like the fit on this coat. I am 6'0 and have a longer torso and a large fits perfect with a little bit of a looser fit/ look and long enough in the torso to keep the snow away (especially with the help of the snow skirt). The storm hood is also a super nice feature when the front moves through and winds get high. I also really like that this coat has reinforced material in the shoulders and arm sleeves so you know it will be built to last and withstand abrasions when things get a little to tight in the trees. I am super excited to continue to use this coat for years to come Can't go wrong with Arcteryx

      Arc'teryx Tantalus Jacket

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Have you always wanted a bomber jacket that looks crisp and delivers durable, breathable, and reliable performance on mountain? Well you should give the Arc'teryx Tantalus Jacket a try. The Tantalus jacket has reinforced lower arm/elbow area as well as reinforced shoulders and lower back. The extra reinforcement in those contact areas is nice when skiing in tight tree areas where tears and snags sometimes happen and for increased protection in inclement weather on the mountain. This Jacket is a great everyday option and handles everything from an average day on the mountain to windy whiteout conditions. The Tantalus has somewhat longer arms and fits true to size (I am 6'0 220 lbs and wear a large). Proper layering is key with any shell which is why the Arc'teryx Atom LT insulated jacket and Patagonia Capilene baselayers make awesome pairings with this Shell. If you have further questions please feel free to reach out to me directly.
