    Durability without the tarp effect.

    When you're part of a big family, everyone knows the first kid is the experiment, the middle child blends into the background, and the baby of the family is spoiled beyond belief. As the third child in the Arc'teryx Whiteline jacket family, the 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 commuting in Chicago or ripping through the snow 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.

    The expedition fit and e3D patterning leaves loads of room for layers to optimize your experience. A silkweight shirt might suffice for spring corn, while you'll need a few tiers of thermal layers for a backcountry adventure in the high Rockies come February. The helmet-compatible hood rotates with your head to avoid blind spots. The powder skirt features the Slide n' Loc attachment so you can create an Arc'teryx snow suit for full-bodied weatherproofing.

    Love this jacket

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

    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.

    overpriced and customer service stinks

    • Size Bought: large

    This jacket looks pretty good. But the fit is odd, and it is very stiff and noisy when you move. I returned it because at this price point you deserve more. The Arcteryx customer service is terrible if you need their help. This does not reflect on Backcounty which is a great company, good products, great service, been a fan for years. This is about Arcteryx

    Sensational Shell

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

    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 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

    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

    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.

    - 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.

    - 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

    Creme de la Creme of Ski Jackets

    I was looking at the Rush over the Sphene because of the extra features and added durability but wanted a fairly fitted jacket so was thinking of getting the Small in the Rush (I am 5'10' 150 lbs.). However the color choices are limited the Pytheas Slate looks washed out in person and the Tungsten Magnet looks great but afraid it just won't stand out in the backcountry - so really a safety issue.

    Any idea if other colors may be available or is it a situation to wait for next year?

    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!


    • Fit: True to size

    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

    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

    Love it

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: large

    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.

    Simply Awesome

    First, the color description, Noche, seems like the creative folks at Arc'teryx were running running short or ideas. Let's call it Midnight Gemstone which is more suggestive the very cool deep purple hues of the Rush jacket. Performance? Where to start. First day with this jacket brought howling winds at 60+ mph, driving wet snow, and a dampness that finds its way to your inner core. The Rush did not disappoint. No wind, no dampness, and the integrated hood over my helmet was indispensable for a big weather day. Layer this baby with an Arc'teryx RHO base and you become totally impervious to the elements. The vents let you stay warm on the lift and dissipate heat at the bottom of the mogul run. Spendy? Yup, but worth every penny. I wear a medium in this jacket. Normally I'm a large, but the jacket seems to have more of an athletic fit which works for me. Broad in the shoulders, narrow at the waist.

    I'm from a beach town and I recently moved to Denver. There I've been advised to change my mind about insulation and that I won't regret it. I got this jacket after decades using an insulated jacket. I don't regret any penny I invested. You can use this to ski or to hike, you decide what to put underneath based on the weather, very convenient.

    Sweet Jacket

    My jacket unfortunately exploded at the beginning of this season leading me to get this. Super impressed with it so far. For a shell it is both lightweight, warm and breathable.

    The material also seems to be burly enough to hold up to more than one season of abuse.

    The fit I found to be true to size but it is definitely more of a trim athletic fit. Still room for layering but not a baggy fit by any means.

    Broad shoulders? pass on this

    • Size Bought: xxl

    I've been looking for an Arc'teryx jacket for a long time, mostly because most of them aren't large and long enough (I'm close to 6'5"). This jacket has great features, and looks well built, and I wanted to love it. Unfortunately, I couldn't. there's more than enough room in the body of the jacket, but the issue is the shoulders and the back (up-high, around the lat area). It's simply not large enough for someone with a wide back. Additionally, my broad shoulders and long arms were too much for this coat, even with just a t-shirt on. If it fits you, rock it. Good luck!
    my measurements, if it helps:
    6'5" tall
    52 inch chest
    39 inch sleeve
    36-38 waist
    22-24 inches across the shoulders (swimmer)


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

    Super lightweight and durable. You'll need to take it off for the skin track but is burly enough to handle resorts. I've had my fair share of tree branches and rocks and the 40 denier areas of the jacket haven't ripped once. If you're primarily looking for a resort-based jacket, the tantalus is definitely worth a look. A little heavier due to higher denier fabric and more robust features but durability will be slightly better.


    Bombproof Protection

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

    This is my 2nd season with the Rush and it absolutely crushes both in the resort and heading up the skin track. It's tough where it needs to be and more breathable everywhere else. The Expedition Fit is perfect for varying layers without being bulky(more roomy than the athletic fit but more tailored than the relaxed). This jacket really shines in the small details - it's articulated perfectly for complete freedom of movement, the zippers work smoothly and easily(seriously, this is something I think really sets Arc'teryx apart), the two main pockets are perfectly placed for use with a pack, the hood cinches and adjusts w/ease, and the two-toned color pattern looks great. If you play hard and like to stay dry and protected, this is the jacket to get.

    Bombproof Protection

    Bombproof Shell!

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

    I got this shell for my husband as a Christmas/Birthday gift. He absolutely loves it. He even wears it out when its snowing or raining, not just on the slopes!
    It is a great shell, keeps him dry and is very breathable.

    He goes touring more than anyone I know and he loves this shell for his touring days. It is so easy to move in, easy to stash while hiking if he gets too hot, and best of all, the pockets are big enough to carry his skins when he gets to the top!

    The colors on this jacket are amazing, I love the two tones! As for fit, we found it ran true to size, but is a little more relaxed. He is 5'9, 180 and wears a size Large in this with room to layer still.

    I'm 6'1'' and wondering if anybody decided to go with the XL over the L fit w/ the Rush. I really like how the L relaxed fitted Arc'teryx jackets fit me & am unsure if the sizes correlate w/ one another, or if in the expedition fit I would be sacrificing some of the rear hem and/or sleeve length.

    I'm 6'5", 205lbs and purchased the L. While it fits and I was able to put an 800 fill down under it, I'm going to take it back for the XL in order to get a little extra sleeve length and freedom in the chest/back. I was pretty torn so I think you'll be happy with the Large

    Im looking to purchase this jacket. I am 5'7 and 145lbs with a 40 inch chest. What size should I get? This would by my primary ski jacket so I would layer accordingly under.

    Hey Alex,

    Based on your sizing I would recommend you go with a Medium just for the extra chest space. Small will probably fit you everywhere else except the chest. Looks like you already placed the order but let me know how it goes! Feel free to contact me directly with any additional questions on anything Arc'teryx.

    Kyle L. - Expert Gearhead

    5'10" / 180-185. What size do you recommend? I don't like baggy but like to wear a vest under.

    Fit is really good on this jacket, read my comments below on my fit. I went with Medium and am 5'-9", 160 - 165. Honestly, medium or large would probably both fit fine, but depends how much of the year you want to wear this... just winter... or spring, winter and fall. If all 3 seasons, I would go medium... Vest would prob still fit, but would also not be overly baggy in other two seasons. I can wear a t-shirt under my medium and as long as I sinch the cuffs tight around my bare wrist, I would never notice it could still fit my Mec tremblant puffy beneath it.

    Hey folks,

    I'm deciding between the Rush and the Sabre. Mainly for winter weather skiiing and also as a dual purpose outer shell for the winter months due to the cost of the shell.

    I was definitely leaning towards the Rush... However was stuck on sizing as I don't own any other Arc'teryx shells. I am 5'-9", approx 160lbs (give or take 5bs on the time of year), 39" chest, 32" waist and fairly athletic build. However I also wanted to be able to layer my Mec Tremblant mid down layer underneath the shell for when the temp really drops and the winds pick up for casual winter wear (temps generally run coldest - 30C without wind chill here).

    I was thinking medium, but can't be sure. Anyone have any words of advice here? They would be much appreciated!!

    Also, my arm length is approx 23 - 24" for what it is worth.

    Thanks again.

    I own the rush, and I absolutely love it. I use it spring backpacking when i experience mixed conditions, and it keeps me dry no matter what get's thrown at me. And it does a great job keeping me dry skiing, and breathing so my layered jacket doesn't get wet. I am 6'2" and wear a Large, so i would recommend a medium for sure as this jacket fits a little on the large size! It's a great jacket and worth every dime! You'll love it!

    Hey guys,

    Reporting back on my purchase. As mentioned above... 5'-9" tall, 160-ish lbs... 39" chest.. 32" waist.. Bought the medium, and I am very impressed with the fit. I plan to wear this shell as a multi purpose, 3 season shell (fall, winter, spring).. And In this case I wanted it to fit with just a 260 wool layer beneath and also be able to wear it with my Mec Tremblant down puffy underneath it + more layers if in extremely cold conditions... amazingly both fit well. The body/sleeve cut of this jacket is honestly unbelieveable. The only con to this jacket is the length of the sleeves, which are quite long, however the velcro cuffs are positioned great to tighten around large gloves or bare wrists alike. So that remedies the long sleeve issue.

    The Rush is lightweight and the snowskirt is not noticable at all when not being used. I would recommend this shell to anyone. This is my first Arc'Teryx piece, but it definitely won't be my last.

    Very impressed.

    What midlayer would be great for this...

    What midlayer would be great for this jacket for a something like 20F - 0F or even colder?

    Best Answer

    Something like a patagonia R2 or maybe a nano puff would probably be a good choice. If you tend to be a cold person, and it's going to be more around the zero mark then a puffier jacket like the Arc'teryx LT Atom or a Down jacket like the patagonia down sweater might be better choice. It really varies though as to what works best for you, if you prefer fleece, synthetic, or down insulation, how thick your base layer is, and many other factors. Best of luck!

    All of the Arc'teryx pieces are designed to work as a system. They layer well together and most importantly they move incredibly well together. No bunching or binding when you're rolling the windows down over that 60 footer.

    Cerium LT Hoody as a mid layer.

    RHO AR, RHO LT or Phase SV as a base layer. The RHO series is designed as more of an insulating piece while the Phase base layers are designed for moisture management. Depends on your work/rest cycles and how cold you get.

    Send it!

    Does this jacket have a temperature...

    Does this jacket have a temperature rating?

    Best Answer

    Most jackets do not come with temperature ratings and the Arc'Teryx Rush Jacket is no exception, especially since this jacket has no insulation material. The Rush can be used for a variety of activities but was designed primarily as a ski shell. Its job is to repel the nastiest weather you can get yourself into, while your job is to put some nice cozy baselayers and midlayers under it that will keep you toasty warm.

    So no temp rating here, but with the protection afforded by the Rush's Gore-Tex Pro shell, and the right underlayers, there really are no limits.

    Can I take this jacket to Alaska

    Can I take this jacket to Alaska


    I can totally understand why you would ask that question. With a jacket this bombproof, the State of Alaska could see you as a serious threat to the sanctity of their powder covered mountains.

    The Arc'teryx Rush Jacket comes with 40D nylon ripstop in the body and sleeve, and 80D nylon plain weave in the shoulder, elbows, and hood. Combine that with a Gore-Tex Pro waterproof membrane and buddy... you can take this sucker anywhere.
