You're a fixture on the Jackson Hole ski scene from opening day to the last tram run of the season. It's time for a new ski jacket, and as you get a bit older, the cold seems more aggressive. Plus, you've booked a room on a cruise to Antarctica, which is hardly known for it's sunny beaches and mild climates. With the Arc'teryx Women's Andessa Insulated Jacket, you can ski all winter long in luxurious warmth and take the same cozy coat with you on the cruise to stay warm when you're watching polar bears and spying on penguins. The combination of 750-fill European goose down and Compact Coreloft insulation offers aggressive warmth when worn over thermal baselayers or chunky wool sweaters so lift rides and standing on the upper deck don't leave you frozen in place, and the Gore-Tex 3L technology makes sure wet winter storms won't keep you inside.
The Andessa places down insulation where you want it most, around vital organs, and fills the rest of the space with ultra-light Compact Coreloft insulation. Your entire body stays toasty warm when January winds rip through the Tetons. Gore-Tex 3L technology guarantees water and breathability won't be an issue, and mesh-backed underarm vents help you dump heat quickly if you do get a bit too toasty. The powder skirt snaps back when you're enjoying a post-powder beverage and comes off entirely for your cruise. E3D patterning and gusseted underarms make sure you can move freely without the torso of the jacket riding up, and the helmet-compatible hood rotates so moving your head doesn't create blind spots.
The women's Andessa Jacket is a new down-insulated ski/snowboard jacket from Arc'teryx. They have been making quality backcountry outerwear for years now and have applied their proven designs to goose down insulation. The shell is durable GORE-TEX® fabric which effortless sheds rain/snow and blocks wind. 850-fill goose down is strategically mapped around the torso to warm your core, and synthetic Coreloft™ is placed along the hem, collar, sleeves and underarms (moisture-prone areas). Features include pit-zips, powder skirt, and adjustable hood and cuffs to name a few. I'd call it a masterpiece, but Arc'teryx just calls it par for the course.
