Arc'teryx Scorpion Jacket
Bought this a year ago and it's simply not waterproof.
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!
Here's what other sites are saying:
Quiet, comfortable, and warm-to-the-touch, the Scorpion Jacket from ARCTERYX offers waterproof and breathable protection with essential features, such as plenty of pockets, a powder skirt, and watertight zips. You'll have an incredible amount of heat with very little bulk when you slide into the low-loft material.

Arc'teryx constructed the Women's Scorpion Ski Jacket with Gore-Tex Soft Shell High Loft material and a plush fleece lining to provide excellent warmth, breathability, and weather protection. The burly Gore-Tex Soft Shell High Loft exterior feels soft instead of stiff and increases mobility. Whether you prefer to ride lifts or earn your turns in the backcountry, this softshell jacket holds off the snow blasts with a stretch powder skirt and storm hood. Articulate construction provides a flattering fit void of bulky excess. Arc'teryx added armpit zipvents for ventilation in warmer conditions and waterproof zippers throughout the Scorpion Ski Jacket.
