Arc'teryx Men's Vertical Jacket

When the big mountains are your shredding oyster, the waterproof- breathable Men's Vertical Jacket from Arc'teryx is patterned for easy layering and designed with a multitude of pockets and features, so when you're off piste you won't be pissed-off. This jacket is constructed from extremely durable GORE-TEX Pro Shell textile that takes the punishment of raking tight trees, unforgiving wind along a ridge crest, and miles of powder upon powder stashes. Teched out with stealth hood adjusters, laminated chin guard, WaterTight zippers throughout, venting pit zips, low bulk Velcro cuff adjusters, drop hem with adjustable cord, and powder skirt with gripper elastic and snap closure, this weather shell seals up when a storm descends upon you. Equipped with a plethora of external and internal pocket space, the Arc'teryx Vertical Jacket provides enough storage to match the capacity of a backcountry summit pack. Cut for cold weather layering without the excess bulk, going vertical in this performance shell reduces mountains into mole hills.

Wow: New Vertical does it all
Since the Vertical is new, I obviously have not had a chance to test it out in extreme conditions, especially here in New Mexico. However, my initial impression is very good. Or should I say wow. I wanted a tough, weather-proof shell, but with hand pockets and interior pockets since I would be using it for skiing, where you always seem to need storage. This jacket looks like it will work perfectly for that, with seven pockets. In addition, I wanted a storable hood, which is has, since I usually use a helmet and don't often need a hood. The combination of these two features appears to be somewhat rare in Arc'teryx shells, but the new Vertical was exactly what I was looking for. The build appears to be typical of Arc'teryx: water- and wind-proof, tough, and of very high quality. I am 5'9' and 155lbs with a medium build. I purchased a medium and with the exception of slightly longer than necessary sleeves, it fits very well, including the shoulders and chest. A thin base layer with a decently warm medium layer fills the jacket out but does not make it too tight. I am definitely looking forward to using it on the slopes this winter.
