    Urban parka with outdoor protection.

    The weather's nasty, but you still need to get to work, to the concert, or to your sightseeing rendezvous point. Slide on the Arc'teryx Women's Sylva Parka and head out the door. You won't even feel the breeze thanks to the parka's WindStopper fabric. And those tiny raindrops aren't a problem due to the fabric's DWR finish. The smooth Coreline lining slides over your office or travel attire with ease, and it traps all the toasty warmth that 140g Coreloft insulation has to offer. Which is a lot, because Arc'teryx designed the insulation with a laminated construction (non-quilted) that rids any cold spots from your head to your thighs.

    The Sylva has a women-specific design and fit that keep it sleek for city wear, and gusseted underarms that mean you can hail a cab or comfortably take travel photos without the whole jacket bunching up. Its hood provides the same lofty warmth your body gets, and you can cinch it down tightly on blustery days. The laminated brim keeps water from dripping down your face.

    great jacket for northern New England!

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

    I wear this coat as my go-to warmest-of-the-warm winter jacket in northern new england at it does a great job keeping me warm. It is very warm for the weight, especially if you are moving. The hood has plenty of coverage, even when my hair is in a pony tail. My only small complaint if that the outside of the front pockets is not lined, and I wish it was knee-length rather than mid-thigh length. Mine is the "Amba" color which is a burnt orange color-- it is a sophisticated color that looks great with browns and blues.

    bottom poof

    • Height: 5'4"
    • Weight: 130lbs

    Let me start off by saying i did return this jacket-BUT my reason is a little vain.

    I tested the waterproofing and water does drip off like water off a ducks back. the hard shell is isnt too stiff but its a good layer on those windy days. The color is an orangy-yellow-more like a dark mustard. The coat is really warm as it has a nice little puff layer on the inside. Great pockets outside along with a hidden pocket inside to stash cash/ID.

    my con was the fact that the poof in the jacket seems to all gather at the bottom and sort of poof out-not sure how to really explain this. but there is added poof that makes the coat lay funny down at the bottom-also when you sit down its rather poofy.

    Now the jacket IS warm, good waterproofness, nice hood, cool color-but i think maybe for a taller person it would be a little better? Im 5ft 4 and got a small.

    zipper not working well

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: xsmall
    • Height: 4'11"
    • Weight: 90lbs

    Jacket fit well and seems like it would be warm, but not too bulky. I am returning as I could not get the zipper up. Even when I took the jacket off and tried to zip it up while on a hanger, I couldn't get it to work. The zipper looks intact, so I am not sure why it won't work. It is either defective or a cheap zipper.

    Good all around jacket, looks slim

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

    I am what you call a survey woman so i don't like jackets that make me look frumpy. This jacket does not. I wear a 32E bra and this jacket was still not tight in the front. I am 5'6'' and weigh between 135-140 depending. I wouldn't want the jacket to be any longer otherwise it starts restricting your movements. I have worn this at 14C with wind and it's awesome. Rain hasn't really been tested, but in reality the water doesn't bead so that has me a bit concerned. I don't really like the pockets, my hands that were warm when I put them in there always got cold. Sleeves aren't long enough for me (M) to snug my hands into. I do love the jacket fit, the length, the style and warmth overall so I can deal with other means of warming my hands. Jacket can be tough to start if it's not seated properly but I haven't had any issues.

    zipper stinks

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    I LOVED this coat. I wore it in the recent SanFrancisco rain storms. It kept me dry, warm and toasty. However, It is NOT CLASSY to have to stop out of your coat and or slide it on over your head because the zipper won't work. From day one the zipper was sticky and a bit tricky, but for the awesome style and function of the coat, I was willing to put up with it. The day I had to step out of it to get it off was the final straw. One should not have to put up with inferior zipper with a coat at this price point.

    The coat fits great. I ordered a medium and I'm a 32DD. It wasn't tight in the chest at all. I loved that I didn't have to bulk up underneath to stay warm. However, the inferior zipper is making me send it back. If Arc'teryx fixes the zipper issue, I would gladly order again.

    Great warm coat, too tight in the chest

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: Runs small

    Beautiful, very warm, and lightweight. You can get a full range of motion easily in the arms, but the chest was a bit tighter than I expected. I wear a 36A or a 34B and the medium was just a tad too tight up top for me, especially if I wanted to wear a soft shell underneath, so I'll have to exchange if for a large, otherwise, a great coat. (Also, note that the 2 way zipper in the front has to be all the way down to begin, otherwise you will spend 5 minutes of frustration trying to get it to work). Lastly, I would agree that when you sit down, it doesn't cover the entire seat, and I am also 5 ft. 3.

    surprisingly warm, too short

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

    I used this coat in 0F with wind at night. For the weight of the coat I was surprised by the warmth and protection. However, my bum was cold when I sat in my frozen car since the length of the coat is a few inches too short and I am 5'3". The 3 way adjustable hood is a dream. The pockets are at the exact right place and good sized. The fit is very feminine and good looking for the length.


      Perfect for cold days
      It's feels very light but it's amazingly warm.It's very comfortable. U don't have to wear fifty things underneath to be warm.
      That is the best part.
      Fantastic for windy days
      Great coat

        Is this as warm as a down coat?

        Best Answer

        This will not be as warm as the Patera Parka, which is a down coat. However the Sylva Parka offers a surprising amount of warmth and weather protection for the price. The Sylva Parka features a taped Gore WindStopper face fabric so it's completely wind proof and extremely water resistant. The synthetic Coreloft insulation is used throughout the jacket and in the hood as well, offering a nice level of warmth.
