Womens Technical Jackets"
I really really wanted to like this jacket but the hips were too snug on the XS. The arms fit generously (but comfy), bust and waist allow for a couple inches of ease but the…

I got this for a rain coat and biking shell for spring but I am amazed at the versatility and the great fit! Women's shells and rain coats tend to be too short in the torso an…

Arct’ryx do it again! With all the elements you come to take for granted with Arct’ryx, quality fabrics matched with a simple, but fitted, cut. However, the real stand out…

I first saw this jacket when it caught my eyes as I walked into the store! The material is so soft but sturdy as well. The end of the sleeves has a stretchy elastic like mater…

Just bought this as a Christmas present for my mom after she saw my Atom LT and wanted one for herself. I think my mom was happier getting this jacket than hearing that I got…

Arc'teryx's size chart was pretty accurate on the fit of this jacket, and I otherwise liked the fit and style, but the wrists were uncomfortably tight, to the point of being c…

Love the jacket and the colors but when it came in, it didn't have 'Arcteryx' on the front. WIERD! The picture shows the arcteryx logo w the word 'Arcteryx' in white. The jack…

Got the Alpha SV today to replace for my broken TNF Modulus. Its a high quality jacket but far from perfect.
The front zipper is not watertight. Although it has a wind flab,…

Really warm and well made. The inside is extremely soft and the option to reverse it is a nice touch. First exposure to North Face products and I think I'm getting hooked.…

Bought this in XS (I'm 5'6, 125lbs, B34). I loved the length of the coat and the sleeves (which were on the long side so you can stay warm) but the torso is really roomy--so m…

This jacket is amazingly lightweight, astonishingly warm, but breathable. It was the perfect layer to add for a long downhill when cross country skiing. I also use it when r…

I wear this to the office everyday and it doesn't look "technical". Super warm and will not make me sweat since it's breathable. Very comfortable and doesn't make that crunc…

I live in WI and decided to get a real winter coat before going to Iceland. Worried I was too influenced by my love for Canada instead of the awesomeness of the coat itself, b…

I was not familiar with the new technology and I originally ordered the jacket just because I thought it was supercute. When it came, I was wondering why it was so light and t…

As if the original Diez could not get better and lighter, the SUPER Diez is even lighter with 900 fill, yet sooooooo warm! Plus it comes in a baroque purple with just enough…

About Women's Technical and Lightweight Jackets:
I met a psychic the other day. I was just walking down the street and a woman in an awesome dress grabbed me by the wrist, stared at my palm, looked into my eyes and told me “Tell them about technical jackets and the other side.” then she disappeared into a crowd.
Women’s technical jackets are useful for more than snowboarding and skiing. That’s right, I’m talking about paranormal investigation. When a spirit causes the temperature in the room to drop 20 degrees you don’t want to be caught unprepared. Likewise, if you have been out in the mountains tracking yeti and you return to find that your camp has been ransacked by a sasquatch you will be glad that you have a lightweight jacket that resists abrasions that has the waterproofing and insulation you need to get back to town without suffering any injuries.
You don’t need to be a believer to know that a technical jacket will keep you ready for anything that presents itself, and if you get abducted by aliens its probably just because they want to investigate your coat.
