Think of your favorite T-shirt, the one you never want to take off. Then imagine that T-shirt features Gore technology and is built to withstand any hissy fit from Old Man Winter. That’s the Acr’teryx Rethel jacket. Utilizing Gore Thermium, a completely windproof and highly breathable material, the Rethel is a three-layer hybrid geared for harsh conditions. Arc’teryx introduced a comfortable, relaxed fit with the Rethel, which extends lower down the back to prevent snow seepage. The Rethel is water resistant (as opposed to waterproof) but mesh-backed PowderGuard underarm vents encourage airflow when laps get hot. If the powder faucets turn on, the adjustable StormHood offers serious protection form the elements.

Welcome relief from the crunchy outerwear feel, the Arc’teryx Rethel jacket introduces GORE Thermium to the main stage in a three-layer, water-resistant, and windproof package.
