The Women's Theta AR Jacket leads the Arc'teryx essentials line, and it's obvious why. The Theta AR is decked out with every feature you could ever want on a wet or windy day, regardless of whether you live in Seattle, are halfway through hiking the AT, or are skiing through a heavy March blizzard. This jacket is more than an exercise in utility--articulated design provides full range of motion plus feminine styling, so your bright fuchsia manicure isn't the only give-away that you're a woman. Guaranteed waterproof, breathable N70p Gore-Tex Pro fabric sheds snow like your dog sheds fur in July, and still allows excess body heat to escape so you don't overheat. While waterproof and breathability are key, the durability of the Gore-Tex Pro makes the Theta AR stand out in a crowd. Tightly woven strands of 70D nylon rebuke abrasions and untoward advances by rock faces, ski poles, and sharp branches, all the while remaining soft and supple. The hood attaches at the base of the full stand-up collar, meaning you can zip to your chin and not have the hood hovering around your face. Full articulated and no-lift gusseted underarms lets you stretch for a hold without taking the entire jacket with you, an underarm vents help cool you down if you're hiking through the prelude to a mid-summer monsoon. Most essentials have broad application and are not limited in scope, and the Theta AR jacket is no different. Layer it over a slim-fitting puffy coat for winter warmth when the snow thunder roars, wear it over a thin baselayer for backcountry touring in full sun, or put the Theta AR over your theta sweatshirt from college on your evening constitutional in town.
