Arc'teryx Tempest Jacket
Where to Buy
Here's what other sites are saying:
Cut specifically for women, the supple Arc'teryx Tempest shell jacket is designed for resort riding and skiing. It's built with room for layering and features Gore-Tex(R) waterproof protection. Gore-Tex Pro 3-layer laminate fabric is tough, extremely breathable and durably waterproof and windproof. Interior features a plush fleece backer in shoulders, upper sleeves and back combined with a lighter weight flannel in the sides for cold days and enhanced breathability. Embedded RECCO(R) reflector enhances radio signals from search-and-rescue RECCO detectors to speed location acquisition in an avalanche. Helmet-compatible hood and generous collar protect you in inclement weather without sacrificing your peripheral vision. Waterproof front zipper prevents windchill and snow entry; quick-drying chin guard protects soft skin from zipper abrasion. Powder skirt with snap closure keeps out cold air and snow; slide-and-lock snaps attach jacket to compatible pants (sold separately). Pit zippers with WaterTight(TM) zippers allow easy and efficient ventilation. Large handwarmer pockets and sleeve pocket have water-resistant zippers; internal mesh pocket for easy access storage. Includes an adjustable waist drawcord and adjustable hem drawcord. Arc'teryx Tempest shell jacket has a relaxed fit.
Unity of time, place, and action rarely happens in the real world, let alone in centuries-old romantically inclined plays. Luckily for you, it's the sight of a big, heavy snowstorm that brings your world together and puts butterflies in your stomach. Pull on the Arc'teryx Women's Tempest Jacket when the sky starts to spew snow. This storm-proof baby has room for thermal layers, yet still flaunts a singularly feminine silhouette. The polyester backer feels soft against your skin when spring tempests bring warmer weather, and it adds a bit of heat mid-winter when the after-storm cold front moves in. Regardless of how much or little you layer underneath, the Gore-Tex membrane guarantees waterproof and breathable protection when the stars align and you get first tracks down the open bowl of your dreams. With all of the bells and whistles on this jacket, it might feel as though you're tempting the weather gods to unleash their furies, full-force. The powder skirt snaps close to keep the snow out if you choose not to use the Slide 'n Loc attachment with Arc'teryx pants to create a snow-suit. The helmet-compatible hood adjusts to fit your noggin, and the laminated visor diverts water and snow away from your face. The chin guard protects against a red beard of zipper rash, and the hem drawcord helps seal out the elements. Underarm zips let you show off six months of razor-free living, or just dump excess heat when spring sun shines a little too strong. Whether you're perfecting quick turns on the race course or stringing together a pretty ribbon of turns across an open face, the Tempest has your comfort in mind.
