The Arc'Teryx Men's Nuclei AR Jacket is a belay jacket for staying warm on that frosty ledge. The belayer isn't just supposed to stand there and look pretty, but dang this jacket just can't help but excel in the looks department. Besides you working hard to keep your leader safe, you've gotta stay toasty to do so and Gore® N20mr-x WINDSTOPPER® fabric is your first line of defense against the cold. The jacket blocks the wind at your back and is highly water resistant for taking care of light moisture. Insulating you against dropping temps is Coreloft™ 100 and 40, a synthetic insulation that is hydrophobic and incredibly lightweight. When the going gets wet, it'll resist that moisture and still work to keep you warm, so you won't have to keep an eye off your belay duties. Once it's your turn to head up the route, stuff the whole jacket into the included stuff sack and clip it to your harness, not to be noticed again until you require more warmth.

Products on Sale are Discontinued Styles or Colors.

• Please note that all the info provided above refers to body measurements, and NOT the dimensions of the garment.


Next to Skin Fit - These snugly-fitting garments are made with stretch fabrics to fit next to the skin to enhance moisture management and thermal efficiency. Garments in this fit category when constructed using Arc'teryx's heavier-weight AR and SV fabrics also perform very well as mid layer pieces, and users should consider selecting a larger size to accommodate a base layer underneath if the intention is to use this layering system as a mid layer option.

Trim Fit - Trim-fitted garments share the motion-friendly traits with Arc'teryx "Athletic" fit garments, but are patterned with lower volume for reduced bulk. These close-fitting pieces layer well under other garments.

Athletic Fit - This is the "Arc'teryx Standard" fit. These complete patterns utilize anatomical shaping and gussets to enhance motion by minimizing excess bulk. Easy layering under or over each item extends seasonal versatility and comfort.

Relaxed Fit - Relaxed fit garments rely on higher volume patterns and a reduced amount of articulation to offer roomy mobility.

Expedition Fit - Cut roomier than the Arc'teryx Athletic fit and suitable for winter/extreme conditions, Expedition (XPD) fit garments are cut larger to accommodate multiple layers without binding or restricting movement.

• You can find the fit type and additional fit info for Arc'teryx styles in the product description FEATURES and SPECIFICATIONS.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Amazing!! I do not know how to define this jacket, Mid layer, top layer? Beautifully built very water resistant, (even in heavy rain) and it breaths. It looks so good I almost do not want to use it climbing. It is a perfect Winter go any where piece, it also, (so far), works better than any mid layer I have ever owned. It is a substantial piece covering the butt and hood cinches well around the neck. All this and it will pack in a Tiny included stuff sack, it defies logic. So far the outer shell is thin but appears extremely durable. I am 6'5" tall and 220 Lbs, an XL fits me well with long enough sleeves. This jacket is built for tall people. I will use it for Skiing, Snowshoeing and Climbing and probably an everyday jacket through the winter both mid and top layer.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from great jacket, can't say the same for sizing I was so excited to receive this jacket in the mail but my joy quickly turned into disappointment. I admit the jacket felt good and well constructed as one can expect from Arcteryx jackets. However, I swam in my usual size, medium. I am 68" and 167 lbs. and every Arcteryx jackets and shirts I own are medium. I am not talking about 1-2 pieces but I have over 20 jackets and shirts. I was hoping to replace my Atom AR with this but this fit me like large. I realize this is designed for outerwear rather than layering piece like Atom series but still, it fits me bigger than Fission SV which is expedition fit. I find Arcteryx sizing less and less trustworthy now. Arcteryx used to be consistent with their sizing but ever since they are outsourcing their production to China and other countries, the quality is kinda still there but the sizing is off IMO. Anyway, this went back and kept my Atom AR as a result.
