The waterproof/breathable, lightly insulated Tempest Jacket is designed for big mountain skiing and free riding in cooler weather. Wind and snow protection comes from two types of N70p GORE-TEX® fabric with 3L softshell construction. A lower loft softshell backer is used in areas where breathability and freedom of movement are most important, and a high loft liner is used in other areas to provide increased insulation.
The Tempest is distinguished by intelligent features that help skiers and boarders optimize their time on the mountain. The DropHood™ is helmet compatible, and offers full coverage and weather protection with exceptional freedom of vision. Pit zips provide quick ventilation and have low bulk WaterTight™ zippers, the cuff design easily fits over or under gloves. Standard WaterTight™ front zipper delivers a secure seal without snow accumulation, while the integrated powder skirt blocks driven snow. The internal mesh pocket stows goggles or gloves.
Arc’teryx designers design with an eye towards creating clothing layers and equipment that work together to maximize function and performance. Patterning and features align to deliver optimal freedom of motion, breathability and protection. The Tempest Jacket’s Slide’n Loc™ attachments link to compatible Arc’teryx pants to create a unified piece that more effectively seals out wind and snow.
