What a Jacket!
The Arcteryx Ravenna Womens Jacket meets the expectations of ambitious female skiers and hikers in every aspect! Slim cut and beautiful colours. Equipment and material talks for itself! This involves a rare GORE-TEX Soft Shell laminate, made out of a 3-layer workmanship and a soft fleece-inner lining. The fabric is extremely abrasion-resistant and permanently waterproof. Yet it is not the typical Hardshell-laminate but comes with a soft touch of material and is elastic in all directions. This allows an elegant, slim cut without fluttering.
The pocket equipment meets exactly the expectations of professional female skiers: lined hand pockets, an easy accessible Lift ticket pocket on the sleeves, an inside pocket for gloves and snacks (eyeglass cleaning cloth included!) and an additional secured inside pocket. On top of that, it has practical, side ventilation zippers, which do not run underneath the under arms so thus open completely even when wearing a backpack, and an obligatory ankle snow gaiter.
The modest jackets made by the Canadians are known for their fantastic hood designs, which the Ravenna Jacket has of course, too. It is equipped with a DropHood, which is entirely helmet-compatible and adjustable and a shield feature, which sits perfectly on every movement without blocking the view. However, it is not directly adjustable, but rather has a protective collar, where the hood is sewed on the outside. This way, a scarf will not be necessary even without wearing the hood, since the collar covers perfectly and insulates the neck.
There are far more functions behind the modest design of the Arcteryx Ravenna Womens Jacket. This jacket is a technical, life-long companion on ski tours and at mountaineering.
