Imber Jacket

Umbrellas have their place, but staying dry in a real storm means you'll need a killer raincoat like the Arc'teryx Imber Women's Jacket. It's a casual thigh-length jacket, but features all the rain-defeating features you'd expect from Arc'teryx. The three-layer Gore-Tex membrane sheds monsoon-level precipitation without making you feel clammy. Fully taped seams help prevent condensation from sneaking through, and the drawcord hood's brim keeps the rain from running down into your face. Arc'teryx coated the zipper to ensure full waterproofing, lined the chin with soft brushed fabric to prevent irritation, and finished the cuffs with low-profile elastic to reduce bulk and keep water out of your sleeves. It also gave the Imber two hand pockets with hidden zippers, because you need a place to keep your things when you're exploring downtown.

  • Gore-Tex shell (3-layer)
  • 42D nylon face
  • Fully taped seams
  • Drawcord hood with brim
  • Soft chin guard
  • Elastic cuffs
  • Zippered hand pockets
  • Two-way coated zipper

I wanted to take the time to write a review on the Imber jacket because there is additional information that is key that isn't included in Backcountry's product description. I love the quality and fit of Arc'teryx jackets, and the Imber was no exception. I couldn't figure out the differences between the Imber & Codetta (including big price difference) so ordered both in black. The Codetta is made from 3-ply Gore-Tex material, while the Imber is made from 3-ply Gore-Tex C-Knit material, which is an upgraded and newer version of Gore-Tex. The Imber material is thinner and lighter, and has a slightly softer (they call it brushed, but I wouldn't go that far) inside that feels less clammy. The Imber drapes a bit nicer because it is thinner. Otherwise, they are very similar. Both are really waterproof shells that you will need a layer under during colder conditions. Only 2 exterior pockets on both--the Imber pockets were deeper and much easier to zip. Both had awesome sculpted cuffs and the same hood design. The Codetta has two slits on the back kick area, while the Imber has one. The Codetta has a flap over the zipper that can close with three snaps -- the snaps were extremely hard to close so I'd probably let it flap open most of the time. The zipper on the Codetta, as many reviewers noted, is challenging. It's only slightly better on the Imber, but neither was a deal-breaker for me. The lengths are listed as the same on both jackets, but they definitely are not. The Imber is at least 3 inches longer. The Codetta looks to me more like a car coat, while the Imber looks a bit more like a mid-thigh trench coat length. That's just personal preference -- I love the more elongated look and coverage of the Imber, but both are very nice and cover your seat. Sizing on both was similar and consistent with other Arc'teryx jackets I have owned. At 5'6" and 123 lbs (slim build with slightly wider shoulders), I am consistently a size Small. I tested this jacket alone and over a thick sweater, and over a Patagonia Fiona Down 800 jacket (a very fitted long down jacket.) If the comparison helps, the Imber is about 1" longer than the Fiona (covering it entirely, which was nice), while the Codetta was several inches shorter. The best fit was with a light fleece layer & a slim fitting down vest under it because it didnt restrict shoulder movement as much but provided great warmth. Can't wait to wear this all fall! Thanks, Backcountry!

good raincoat, but...

  • Size Bought: Medium

This is a SHELL, best described as a raincoat. Lovely teal color, and fits perfectly - except is too tight across the shoulders when moving my arms forward. (That's a deal breaker... and I'm a thin person!) Odd, the front zipper isn't covered. Need to return it.

Portland approved

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: N/A

My Sister in law is currently in portland and it rains a lot there and she walks to work and didn't have a reliable jacket at the time. So I got her this for her birthday so that she could stay warm and dry on her walk to work. The jackets 3 layer goretex is not only going to guaranteed dryness but it also breaths so that it doesn't feel like a poncho and the sleek design makes it so that she doesn't look like she is wearing a garbage bag either. She is 5'9 and 120 lbs and got a size small.
