Arc'teryx Accelero Jacket -

The Arc'teryx Accelero Jacket was engineered to deliver controlled airflow, breathability and moisture wicking performance and is ideal for aerobic activities in cooler weather. This trim jacket is made with an ingenious double-weave polyester textile that is highly breathable, has mechanical stretch and features an inner layer of bamboo charcoal for natural moisture and odour control. Gender specific shaping and strategic seam placement ensures comfort.

Lining and Layers:

  • This lightweight, weather-resistant jacket is designed to be worn over a thin layer for cool-weather runs


  • Refined fit, updated style lines, thumb cuff
  • As you zip the jacket up, you’ll feel the expertly designed fit conform to your body
  • Slim, athletic fit, 8.4 oz.


  • Drop back hem
  • Dry Web - 100% Polyester double-weave
  • Dry Web face fabric with a DWR coating repels moisture while remaining highly breathable
  • Articulated cut and gusseted underarms give your body room to move without putting extra fabric in your way
  • DWR finish (Durable Water Repellent) helps bead water from fabric surface
  • Schoeller Dynamic GNS fabric wicks moisture and is flexible so you can move the way you want to move
  • The first thing you’ll notice about Arc’teryx Accelero when you get it in your hands is the fabric
  • Mechanical stretch textile for unrestricted mobility—fabric is inherently stretchy without the use of Spandex fibres, making it more durable
  • Stretchy fabric allows you to move more freely
  • Stretch-woven cuffs with thumbholes keep sleeves in place as you move, and the stretch-woven hem ensures the bottom of your jacket stays put
  • Air permeable fabric has long lasting water repellency (DWR)
  • Polyester double-weave fabric, with bamboo-charcoal fabric-backer next to skin layer, helps to control odor build-up


  • Every little thing on this jacket is well thought out, right down to the zippered hip pocket that stays out of the way of fast motion


  • Arc’teryx calls it Dry Web, and it’s incredibly smooth to the touch; it’s designed to move with the body and keep you comfortable thanks to its breathability
  • Highly breathable—maintains comfort during aerobic activity
  • Quick-pull full front zip for easy venting

Weather and Wind:

  • Strategically placed seams increase comfort and reduce chafing

  • Laminated sleeve pocket with internal audio port
  • Reflective blazes on back and sleeves for enhanced visibility in low light
  • Thumbholes hold your sleeves in place and give extra coverage to your hands


  • On the outside, there’s a long-lasting Durable Water Repellent finish that makes training in drizzle possible
  • Articulation and no-lift gussets give free range of motion
  • Reflective accents make you a bit easier to spot when you're out in the dark
  • Reflective blades
  • Quick-drying

Your Arc’teryx Men’s Accelero Jacket will keep warm and dry from the optimistic start of your training session to the sweaty, exhausted end. A great mix of breathable comfort and light weather protection helps your body feel good so you can perform at your best.

Positive Reviews:

Versatile, lightweight shell

I've worn this jacket as a shell for dozens of road and trail runs in wet/cold/windy weather, and I'm constantly amazed by how well it performs over the widest range of conditions (sub-zero wind-chills up to mid-40s). It's very lightweight, yet it sheds precipitation and stands up to wind like a heavy rain shell AND it's super breathable when it needs to be. The inner-sleeve thing at the wrist with the thumb-holes is a nice touch. The zippers seem to be good quality, although I hardly ever use the little pocket on the side (I run with a hydration pack). This is the most versatile layer I own, hands down - a key piece of my arsenal.

It should be noted that the orange colorway (cayenne) is much brighter/less red than it appears in the above picture. IMO it's on the verge of obnoxiously bright, but if one needed to get rescued, they'd have the best chance of being seen.

Bottom line: Arc'teryx delivers

Great update

This is a great update of the Accelero. It's finally trim-fitting, as it's supposed to be (although still not as trim as the Incendo). Fabric has a great feel. Works well in cool temps, as the new thumbhole cuffs would suggest. But they can easily be tucked away if you warm up or want to wear this handsome jacket in casual settings. I don't find it exceptionally breathable, but I haven't found anything that protects you from the weather to have great breathability. If you're running you generate a lot of heat and sweat so you're going to get a little clammy. All around, really nice jacket and I'm glad that it finally is sized right.

Feels A little Futuristic

I've Been Wearing the Orange as a Middle layer Over a lightweight Salomon Base that Has a Nice Hood with Visor. When It's Dry I Add a Marmot fleece & When it's Wet I Go with My Chrome Cobra. The Material is Very Pleasing to the Touch & the fit Does leave a little Room for layers Underneath. Sometimes You Wonder if the Asking Price was Worth the Item, In this Case it's Well Worth the Price of Admission.

Negative Reviews:

The title says it all. I really wanted to love this jacket, and at first I really did like it, but then I started to realize I really didn't. First of all, for any of you guys that have reviewed saying too roomy or too baggy, use some common sense and size down. The jacket fits fine. Since Arcteryx started mass merchandizing (around 2008 they blew up commercially) their sizing turned really wacky. From then on smalls became mediums; Mediums became large and larges became XL. This is a pretty common fact so don't say that is a flaw it is just their sizing has changed and you need to just size down. Now for this jacket, I really liked the materials top notch, lite, packable, slightly insulated with reflective heat, wind resistant and above all active fit. What I did not like about this jacket is no stretch, just doesn't have it. The reason I got two was I returned one because the zipper kept coming down unless I had it all the way to the top which I don't like to do all of the time unless I need to (and the neck was a little tight especially with layers). Now if I was just hanging out and relaxing this was not a problem but on the trail running it was down right annoying. So I returned it and the same issue. So I realized this jacket just was not going to work for me. So I cut my loses. Sizing; I am 5'10" 165. I have a 41-42 inch chest depending ont the season and a 19-20 inch long torso. This jacket fit me perfectly in the small. I will admit it was a little tighter than I normally wear, but it really did not feel tight when moving and that is all that matters. I hope this helps some of you out.

Years later I have tried the Accelero again, same old problem! The zipper continues to fall. This is the most annoying problem of a jacket ever, will not recommend, this product is just simply not suited for running in my opinion.
