Arc'teryx obsesses over details to create superior quality outerwear, and its Women's Scimitar Jacket provides optimal protection when you're slashing through deep powder or navigating the slopes in an epic dump. The jacket's premium fabric and top-of-the-line construction are designed to optimize your comfort while taking a lifetime of hard use. The face fabric is luxuriously soft and lightweight yet extremely durable. The three-layer Gore-Tex Pro membrane offers excellent breathability while providing guaranteed waterproof protection, and is Gore's toughest fabric made to withstand hard use in extreme conditions. The WaterTight Vislon front zipper keeps moisture from getting in through the cracks without the need for a bulky storm flap, and the sleeve pocket is also sealed off with a WaterTight zipper. If you need added protection against falling snow or icy windchill, you can cinch down the helmet-compatible hood with hidden adjusters in front or with an adjuster at the back of the hood. The hood is designed to move with your head so you maintain a clear field of vision at all times. A powder skirt with snaps that allow you to connect it to compatible Arc'teryx pants, and a drawcord at the hem, work together to seal snow out if you're plowing through deep powder or spraying snow on fast runs. If you're working up a sweat while hiking out to your favorite spot in the backcountry, you can air out by unzipping the mesh-lined underarm vents. The jacket's roomy expedition fit provides plenty of room for layering underneath while allowing room to move, and ergonomic 3-dimensional patterning (or e3D) supports a maximum range of movement through articulation at the elbows and underarm gusseting that keeps the jacket from lifting when you raise your arms. Arc'teryx has thought of everything to provide moving comfort and optimal protection, so you can focus on performance and fun out on the mountain.


The Arc'teryx Women's Scimitar Jacket is a waterproof shell for when the backcountry and big mountain calls your ski or SnowBoard into action. Lightweight enough to pack it into your pack when the weather is feeling right, but once the rain, Snow or sleet begins, the XPD (expedition Fit) jacket slips over your layers and protects with N70p Gore-TEX Pro fabric. You won't have to forego safety for a dry head with the helmet-compatible StormHood and the hidden Recco reflector is a nice little extra to have on you in case you need to be rescued from an avalanche. Pit zips allow for quick cooling under the arms, without sacrificing protection from the elements by opening up the front. Keep Snow off your lower back with the powder skirt, and there Are plenty of pockets inside and out for all the extra necessities.
