Backcountry skiers know they lose most of their warmth on windblown summits, with brisk breezes blowing down while they dig pits and remove skins. Arc'teryx equipped the Men's Rethel Jacket with a Windstopper hi loft shell for windproof, breathable protection, and Coreloft synthetic insulation adds a touch of warmth on the summit. Arc'teryx treated the Rethel with DWR to shed snowfall and downhill spray. A trim fit makes the Arc'teryx Men's Rethel Jacket an excellent midlayer for winter's snowiest tours. PowerGuard side vents let out an abundance of heat when you work up a sweat. There are adjustments on the powder skirt, hood, and cuffs for a secure fit. Arc'teryx added a Recco avalanche rescue reflector to help Recco equipped ski patrols find you in emergencies.
