Fully insulated, yet deceptively slight in profile, the Meta jacket provides compact winter protection in a lightweight, durable, waterproof/breathable package. Two weights of GORE-TEX® fabric are utilized. Strategically placed wind and waterproof N80p-X GORE-TEX® 2L has a hardwearing face fabric that protects high-use areas from winter abrasion. N70p GORE-TEX® 3L fabric provides full weather protection without sacrificing flexibility or ease of motion.
WARM AND LEAN
Warmth comes from Coreloft™ Compact synthetic insulation. Reduced in volume but not in efficiency, Coreloft™ Compact offers exceptional thermal performance with minimal bulk. Arc’teryx designers use it to create jackets that provide freedom of movement and a clean aesthetic while still delivering four season performance.
Arc’teryx puts a premium on developing pieces that have precise, use specific features and nothing extraneous. The Meta Jacket is mountain ready. PowderGuard™ mesh backed vents provide ventilation without allowing snow into the jacket. The WaterTight™ front zipper provides a secure closure that doesn’t accumulate snow, and carefully placed pockets are practical and accessible. The full coverage DropHood™ is helmet compatible, and protects from the weather without sacrificing visibility. The integrated collar zips up high to seal out drafts.
