Thats the way to the top: The Arcteryx Womens AR Jacket!
This lightweight jacket is made out of a particularly steam permeable outer fabric and furnished with an equally important air permeable lining. This makes it so perfect to wear in the mornings when ascenting in the cold and can still be kept on during the days when it warms up. This jacket is a good alternative to both fleece and softshell. The fabric is extremely water repellent and permanently windproof. In the incident that for any reason water should soak through, the lining fabric is coated to be water repellent and remains in its fill power.
Elastic edged cuffs and a slim cut serve to make sure that the jacket can be worn underneath an additional layer. It contains two hand warmer pockets and one zipper chest pocket, which can be easily reached even when wearing a backpack. Should it get too warm due to the high breathing activity then the Arcteryx Proton AR Womens jacket is packed away in no time!
