Intended for backcountry touring’s descent and rest phases, the Stikine Jacket is a light, packable GORE-TEX® shell with a layer of waterproof Arc’teryx Thermatek™ synthetic insulation. Thrown on during rest and transition phases, it provides warmth and wind protection to help prevent chill. On descents, the waterproof/breathable N40p-X GORE-TEX® 2L shell blocks driven and falling snow, and the Thermatek™ insulation protects from the cold. The Stikine has mesh lined pockets that, when opened, provide ventilation. A low profile powder skirt helps seal out snow without adding unnecessary bulk, and the insulated helmet compatible StormHood™ provides protection and warmth without sacrificing visibility.
DRY INSIDE AND OUT
Knowing the Stikine is likely to come in contact with sweat and snow, the jacket is water resistant inside and out. Thermatek™ is the highest performing technical synthetic insulation Arc’teryx uses. Directly laminated to the lining fabric, Thermatek™ provides warmth, lightweight performance and longwearing resiliency. Treated with a DWR coating for water resistance, it has excellent characteristics for situations where it will be worn over wet layers.
BUILT FOR THE BACKCOUNTRY
Arc’teryx designers think in terms of systems, creating clothing and equipment that come together to work as a single unit. The Stikine works with a variety of pieces, including the Sawatch Pant, Ephus Hoody, and Phase baselayers to provide the flexibility required for self propelled powder seeking away from the ski resort’s comfort zone.
