The women’s Scimitar Jacket is built for big backcountry adventures. Light, waterproof, breathable and packable, this is a hardwearing shell that blocks rain, sleet and snow. The abrasion resistant N70p GORE-TEX® Pro fabric is tough enough for repeated descents, light and packable enough for long ascents, and delivers protection in even the foulest weather. The integrated Arc’teryx Slide’n Loc™ links the Scimitar Jacket with compatible pants to create a unified clothing system.
BUILT TO MOVE
Built to move with the body, the Scimitar has gusseted underarms, a layer friendly Expedition fit and articulated e3D (Ergonomic 3-Dimensional) patterning. Arc’teryx e3D (ergonomic 3-Ddmensional) patterning provides extra space in key joint areas for an added level of use-specific articulationThe result is remarkably efficient freedom of movement that doesn’t alter the Scimitar’s performance focused Expedition fit.
BUILT FOR THE BACKCOUNTRY
Arc’teryx designs with systems in mind, creating clothing pieces that work in synchronicity. The Scimitar layers with Eldora Hoody and Arc’teryx Phase baselayers to provide the flexibility for all three phases of the backcountry journey: the uphill, the descent and those resting moments in between.
