The Arc'teryx Theta AR jacket is the mack daddy of waterproof hardshell jackets. This rugged lightweight hardshell is seen all over the mountain sides, keeping human people dry and comfortable while those human people perform feats of awesomeness. Gore-Tex Pro Shell three-layer fabric makes the Theta AR waterproof, while keeping this jacket lightweight and breathable. The Theta AR has features galore, too, with its helmet-compatible drop hoody, laminated waterproof pockets and zippers, articulated elbows, and gusseted underarms. There are way more features on the Theta AR Jacket. Too many to list, really. Those were just the exceptionally awesome ones off the top of my head. The Theta AR jacket is a true all weather shell. It'll take you from spring rain storms through fall winds. Layer up for winter ski trips, and use the Theta AR as your outer shell. You won't be sorry you did.
For lightest of the light Arc'teryx Gore-Tex shell, check out the Arc'Teryx Theta SL. This Gore-Tex PacLite jacket features a handy stow hood and below-hip length for maximum protection. To keep the Theta SL lighter than my car keys, Arc'Teryx included only the smartest, most critical features, like a hem cinch-cord, pit zippers, Velcro cuffs, and watertight zippers. Underarm gussets and articulated elbows keep you mobile and flexible in this windproof and waterproof jacket.
Arc'teryx Theta SV bib pants are designed to survive challenging alpine ascents and descents while keeping you comfy and dry. These Arc'teryx pants are made with water-beading polyester-faced Gore-Tex Pro Shell fabric, making them completely waterproof and highly wind resistant. The Theta SV Bibs have larger cuff openings to accommodate alpine boots, articulated knees and seat, a gusseted crotch for mobility, and adjustable suspenders and waist for extra comfort.
