Bought this a year ago and it's simply not waterproof.

Rating: rated 0.5 of 5 stars
Price Paid: 400

Bought this a year ago and it's simply not waterproof. It's not even shower proof.

I have treated it with waterproofing products, as per the directions on the Arc'teryx website, but to no avail. That's a few hundred pound in the bin as afar as I'm concerned.

I now have to wear my 10 quid kagool over the top of it in the rain!

The Arc'teryx Men's Scorpion Ski Jacket uses Gore-Tex Soft Shell High Loft material to provide the extra breathability you need for charging hard on the mountain. The Scorpion Jacket's waterproof breathable exterior is surprisingly soft, and its lofty fleece liner keeps you toasty on cold January mornings waiting for first chair.
