An ordinary insulated jacket is made up of an outer layer, which can be either a hard or soft shell and an insulating layer that is built right into the jacket. The thermally insulated jacket provides efficient warmth and protection from the elements. Whether you’re climbing, skiing, hiking, or just interested in casual winter fashion, you’ll look trendy in a high-quality insulated jacket.
Typically, the insulating layer is constructed of down or synthetic material, both of which are excellent insulation against the cold. Arc’teryx has a wide range of jackets made with each of the insulation materials. All have different benefits to help protect you from the men's.
Is an insulated jacket warm?

How to layer clothing with an insulated jacket
When preparing for outdoor adventures, the layering system is a wonderful solution to keep you warm, dry, and comfortable when moving through the elements.
The layering system consists of three basic layers:
Baselayer: This keeps moisture away from your skin and aids in controlling body temperature. Think of wearing a lightweight top or pants here.
The mid-layer is utilised to retain the heat your body produces. Depending on how chilly it is, you might want to wear an insulated jacket, or a fleece if it’s a bit warmer.
Your outer layer will serve as your barrier against the elements. For instance, a waterproof jacket for rainy weather or a windproof or down jacket for cold or dry weather.
Depending on how cold it is, there are more layers you can add to stay warm. Explore Arc’teryx comprehensive layering guide to make sure you’re equipped for winter!
Care instructions for the insulated jacket
For any down product, it’s important to wash it as necessary to ensure the best performance. When your clothing shows signs of sweat, grime, or the down is beginning to lose loft or clump, wash it to retain performance. As insulated clothing gets worn, you’ll have to re-proof the garment to maximise its longevity.
Check out our product care page for step-by-step instructions on washing down products and re-proofing insulated jackets as required.
