Arcteryx Sidewinder Jacket
A burly GORE-TEX® Pro Big Mountain Skiing Jacket featuring Arc'teryx's iconic curved front zipper. The Arcteryx Sidewinder Jacket is crafted to take on the most challenging lines, no matter how demanding the terrain or conditions. Its motion-friendly fit, storm-proof feature-set and premium fabrics allow you to concentrate on the most sublime route.
GORE-TEX® Ski Jacket
Formed from robust N80p-X GORE-TEX® Pro 3-layer, the Arc'teryx Sidewinder Jacket confers reliable, extensively durable protection designed to withstand extended periods of extreme weather conditions. Each of GORE-TEX® Pro's three layers is chosen to provide the best credentials the industry has to offer:
1. GORE-TEX® Pro Membrane
The unique structure of this multi-layer membrane allows free passage of moisture vapor, minimising sweat accumulation, securing comfort, even at high activity levels. Extending breathability ensures comfortable warmth during rest periods, i.e. when riding a chairlift, as a wet fabric robs three times more body heat than a dry one. The GORE-TEX® Pro membrane is impermeable to water molecules, preventing rain/snow entering the Ski Jacket, even in windy conditions generating high water pressures.
2. GORE® MicroGrid Backer
Bonded to the GORE-TEX® Pro membrane, GORE® MicroGrid is a patented woven backer created to increase breathability, compressability and snag resistance, while decreasing weight. The Arc'teryx Sidewinder Jacket's MicroGrid liner is very smooth, sliding over under-layers for comfort and dryness.
3. N80p-X Face Fabric
An exceptionally durable nylon face fabric bonded to the outside of the GORE-TEX® Pro Membrane. N80p-X's dense, smooth construction minimises exposure of yarns to abrasion, reducing damage to the fabric's filaments, improving the fabric's ability to maintain its protective qualities over an extended period. The Arc'teryx Sidewinder Jacket's premium outer encourages water droplets to form 'beads' and roll-off quickly, improving longevity and long-term breathability.
The Arc'teryx Sidewinder Jacket's e3D fitting, and articulated sleeve and shoulder patterning permits the exaggerated 'arms forward' stance required for skiing. Dynamic movement needs to be accommodated to ski a successful line, without your Ski Jacket riding up your arms or back.
Curved WaterTight™ Zip
The Arc'teryx Sidewinder Jacket's distinctive curved WaterTight™ front zip, has a new system for managing the asymmetric flap when it's partially undone. WaterTight™ pit zips can be opened for instant cooling in high energy situations. The Arc'teryx Sidewinder Jacket has a sleeve pass pocket, RS™ zipped hand pockets, and a selection of further pockets to organise belongings.
The Arc'teryx Sidewinder Jacket's Ski Helmet compatible StormHood™ has a laminated brim and single hand adjustable drawcords, to secure and enable it to rotate with your head, without obscuring vision as you turn from side to side. A tall collar delivers full coverage, providing warmth and protection, while a brushed facing delivers chin comfort.
Thepowder skirt creates snow-proof seal that moves with your body as you ski. Slide'n Loc™ attachments connect to Arc'teryx Ski Pants for full protection in deep snow. Laminated Velcro cuff adjusters and a hem drawcord lock cold out and warmth in.
