Legendary.

When you're looking for durable, breathable, waterproof protection at the resort or up the skin track, look no further than the Sidewinder Jacket from Arc'teryx. Boasting an 80 denier fabric weave, the Sidewinder is not only the most iconic in the Arc'teryx snow sports jackets, but also the most durable. This jacket has undergone years of alternations based on experienced customer reviews to create the ultimate ski and snowboard jacket. This season's upgrade is in the iconic asymmetric flap. A new snap system is now in place to keep the collar secure when the jacket is partially unzipped so you have more versatility when wearing the Sidewinder.

A non-bulky, fully taped, 3-layer Gore-Tex construction ensures complete weather protection from rain, wind, and snow so whether you find yourself in a downpour at a resort in the Pacific Northwest or being pounded by relentless gusts on a ridge line, the Sidewinder will keep you dry, warm, and comfortable. With all this protection, the Sidewinder is still incredibly breathable. The Gore-Tex allows moisture vapor to escape while not allowing any moisture in to help regulate your body temperature inside the jacket.

For maximum versatility and comfort on the slopes, the Sidewinder is equipped with a plethora of features. For starters, the underarms are gusseted so the jacket stays in place while you pole plant, trace the line with your finger you're about to ski from the base, or reach up to retrieve a lost glove after a tumble. The underarms also have venting zips that can quickly dump heat when you're working hard through deep powder. A helmet compatible Stormhood can easily be pulled on when the winds pick up on the chairlift and a powder skirt has Slide'n Loc snap closures to secure to compatible Arc'teryx pants to keep snow from creeping up the jacket when you find deep pockets.

Mountain armor

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs large
  • Size Bought: Small

Bought this jacket three seasons ago and it has become my go to for skiing. I ski in the cascades and BC and this jacket has held up to everything, especially the wet. It is cut nice and big so I can layer up as needed. Last winter in Utah it was -20 with Windchill and I was able to fit a Patagonia Down Sweater hoody underneath and stay nice a toasty. The outer fabric is very burly and the jacket looks unscathed. The pockets hold everything I need, food, chap stick, pass, phone, wallet etc. I love how the chunky the zipper is. Last winter I went night skiing a lot and a layer of ice would build up on the front of the jacket, but the chunky zipper allowed me to easily unzip when it was coated in ice. I cannot easily get the hood over my helmet, but I wear a XL Poc Fornix and its pretty big. The collar of the jacket come up super high which is great we you are trying to escape the elements riding the lift. Pit zips are pretty standard, I really only use them in the spring. Internal dump pocket could be a bit bigger, but that's a small complaint. If you ski a lot in burly mountain weather and like to layer then this jacket is perfect.

Thanks for your review Travis! Glad you found your go to jacket.

Love

    I’m 6 ft 190 with broad shoulders. I got the large and it is very large. I could probably fit a medium but didn’t wanna push it. I also owned last years version. I sold it and bought a different color this year. That shows how much I like this shell. The color Tui is a classic Navy blue. In comparison to last years version I believe they have improved the pockets. Maybe I just never noticed on my previous version, but the front hand pockets are now huge. I love it. They travel the entire inside front of the jacket for both the right and left hands. You could easily fit a couple beers and a sandwich in each. There are also the usual arm, phone, and dump pocket. They also added a small plastic snap to secure the collar. It’s a very minor improvement. It is completely wind and water proof and has survived a lot of trees. The only con is the price

    Best ski jacket I ever had

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    Got this jacket about two years ago, skiing 1-2 times per month during long Mammoth season. I'm skiing a lot in trees, many times I thought I've scratched it, but it still looks like new. All small details I want from jacket are there, can't name one thing I wish were done differently, except for price maybe. Definitely will recommend this jacket to anyone.

    Thank you for the comment and feedback, we are super pumped you are enjoying the Jacket! Keep on crushing it!

    Bought as a gift and returned

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: Runs large

    I bought this jacket as a gift and ended up returning it. This is not comparable to other size Larges that Arcteryx has made for shells in the past. It definitely runs large.

    3 stars because of the fit? Doesn't seem compete testament to the jacket What about the features, materials, design? It's not suppose to be trim, like the Cassiar or my older Caden. Fortunately they have different syles, otherwise what's the point if everything fits like a Alpha AR?
