From here to there, and everywhere in between.
True trekkers know that life isn't always about the logistics; the points between A and B often reward the most memorable experiences. Arc'teryx designed the A2B Commuter Jacket for women who sometimes need to get from here to there ASAP and other times just like to enjoy the ride. Kavan face fabric prepares you for whatever letters may come between A and B: a two-way stretch double weave polyester blends durability and dryness with its DWR finish. Made with a plain weave, the TerraTex lining significantly ups the jacket's comfort level with a durable and quick-drying nylon laced with a modicum of spandex for additional mobility. The sun's harmful radiation harbors no power against the Commuter's 50+ UPF rating, a protective force-field against UVA and UVB rays. Two zippered hand pockets and one back zippered pocket allow you to conveniently store logistical or lolly-gagging essentials, depending on the journey type.

I love the fit of this jacket. I'm 5'10 and often have trouble finding sleeves long enough but this is perfect. Fabric is soft and comfortable but still wind proof.
cool jacket but

the styling of this jacket is really awesome. i think it would be flattering on anyone. the collar is super cool and fashion forward on top of the fact that it is arcteryx and obviously really well thought out functional gear. that being said, the fold back cuffs with reflectors are neat, and the zip pocket in back is very streamlined and well placed, but i did not feel confident in the durability/waterproofnesss (it does only say water resistant) of this product. i'm sure it works great and would keep you dry, but at the price point arteryx is i expect a level of "indestructability" and this felt a tiny bit fragile. maybe since they hopped over a bit into the realm of fashionable. i was very tempted to keep it bc it looked so good on, but in the end i couldn't justify it.
