Product Description Item No.   10220071

The Arc'teryx Men's Parsec Coat is a waterproof outer layer geared towards life in the city. I quickly looked up "Parsec" and learned this: "One parsec corresponds to the distance at which the mean radius of the earth's orbit subtends an angle of one second of arc." Makes sense. This sleek, smart, 3/4 length jacket utilizes GORE-TEX® soft shell material, which is breathable and durable, to make your daily grind seem less grindy. The Parsec's interior is insulated with a soft, brushed lining that is comfy next-to-skin and slides easily over your under layers. So pick up the Parsec coat and get ready to ignore the elements as you go to a movie, to dinner or as you subtend some angles (?).

FEATURES of the Arcteryx Men's Parsec Coat

  • Windproof, waterproof/breathable N70p-x Gore-Tex with soft shell brushed interior
  • WaterTight centre front zipper with interior zipper guard
  • Features a high protective collar with DropHood
  • Hidden chest pocket under the storm flap; zippered hand pockets
  • Snap wrist closures

If you haven't heard of GORE-TEX by now, you've probably been living under a rock. And that would make sense, because living under a rock is probably the only place where you wouldn't need the durable waterproof and windproof protection that GORE-TEX fabrics offer. So when you're ready to venture out from under your rock, arm yourself with the comfortable protection of GORE-TEX.

Waist - Measure around the natural waist, which is often the narrowest part of your waist.

Hip - Measure around your hips at the widest part.

Inseam / Pant Length - From a standing position, measure from your crotch to your ankle.

Head Circumference - Measure the full circumference around the widest part of your head.

Hand Length - Measure from the tip of your middle finger to the base of the palm.

• 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 Awesome rain jacket This is a fantastic rain coat. The jacket is well made, and looks great. ,,,,As other reviewers have said, a couple of negatives though.,,,,The jacket is long, so would really benefit from a two way zipper (they finally added it to the Therme winter parka). For the Parsec, they choose to use a waterproof zipper for better coverage -- but I don't believe they are available in two way.,,,,The fit is nice, but a bit awkward. To keep with the minimalist design this jacket only has snaps on the arms, not the velcro wrap you see on most shells.,,,,it is kind of funny that for the zipper they choose more protection, for the sleeves they choose less.,,,,Still a really cool jacket.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Top tier rain coat... with a few irks Love outdoor apparel for its quality, durability and design, but needed something for the office in wet weather. After searching for the best, I got the Parsec. It is a top tier rain shell that uses Gore Tex material backed by a unique brushed lining for softness and light warmth. Quality is Arc Teryx grade and the style is modern, sleek and beautiful.. belongs at the MoMA. Size L fits my 43" chest, 35" waist, 200lb, 5'10" frame well with room for mid layer. ,,,,Things that irk, though may not be issues for others:,,- Collar is way too high and stiff. Tunic style looks cool when zipped up, but when open it looks like a Vulcan costume, obstructs peripheral vision and is too stiff and awkward to fold down.,,- Sleeve opening is too wide, not very adjustable and hangs low on my 33 inch arms.. perfect for those with 35-36 inch arms (in Large),,- No two way zipper and narrow bottom opening means I can do the man spread when sitting in a car or chair.. maybe a good thing.,,Glad I got it.
