Arc'teryx Modon Jacket -

Don't let the sleek silhouette of the Arc'teryx Men's Modon Jacket deceive you—this warm winter shell is loaded with insulation to ward off the cold and Gore-Tex technology to protect you from the nastiest weather. When you're on a backcountry yurt trip and winter storms roll in like an angry momma bear, pull on this storm-proof jacket. From lapping the bowls to bump-riding runs to a quick hike for a blank palette, the Modon keeps you toasty and on the go until the sun goes down or the lifts stop running.

By combining two different Gore-Tex fabrics, you get rugged resistance to rough winter conditions while staying dry and relatively sweat free. Durable 80D nylon protects high-wear areas, while slightly more demure 70D nylon gives you free-riding movement for big-mountain mayhem. Gore-Tex tech weatherproofs your in-bound exploits for all-day adventures: you're guaranteed to stay dry when sitting in snowstorms on the ride up, and not finish the run drenched in sweat. If the sun sneaks out while you're following tracks to ungroomed greatness, open the underarm vents for a quick cool-down.

Resort and backcountry riding rarely is non-stop action. Compact Coreloft insulation cuddles your core, and the microsuede-lined collar keeps your chin chafe-free. An athletic fit gives this jacket a trim profile while giving you room to layer according to current conditions. The elastic powder skirt keeps smoky snow dust out from under your jacket, and the helmet-compatible hood means you don't have to choose between a dry head and safe head.


  • Helmet-compatible Drop Hood™ lies below the high collar when not in use and can be cinched in to seal the collar


  • Coreloft Compact 80 insulation provides good warmth-to-loft ratio
  • Arc'teryx Modon insulated jacket has articulated elbows and no-lift gusseted underarms that allow good range of motion

Arc'teryx Modon Jacket Review:


I will admit, I'm an arcteryx jacket snob. I have a sidewinder from a few years ago, with the stiffer pro shell. Yes it was stiffer but u knew it was bulletproof. I wanted a jacket w some light insulation for skiing and after extensive research, arc and others, I went w this one. It has insulation, but just enough. It's certainly not Michelin man by any means, but it's not just a shell. It's more or less a shell with a nano puff or lightweight synthetic jacket underneath. It really fit the bill for what I was looking for. If u want full on insulation, go w the fission. If u want a shell, get the beta or sidewinder. But if u want a gore tex pro shell w light insulation, this is your jacket. I have worn this in rain, snow, and cold up to minus 25 with an under armor and a Fleece underneath. As typical arc, the jacket is tailored and has accented elbows and well thought out pockets. Recommended, itwill be the last jacket u buy for a long time. Sizing, as I find arc usually runs big, I went down one size. 5'10", 165lbs 40in chest and the small is the right size for me
