What are the Arc’teryx Lightweight Jacket & Shoes Made Of?
At the forefront of Arc’teryx fabrications are properties that make any outdoor activity as easy as possible. Think lightweight, breathable, durable and windproof. GORE-TEX and TerraTex™ fabrications are the most popular lightweight jackets.
GORE-TEX is waterproof and windproof and offers superior protection. TerraTex™ is also wind and water-resistant and will keep you warm and protected in nature.
Are the Arc’teryx Light Jacket & Shoes Waterproof?
Arc’teryx has a range of lightweight jackets that are waterproof or water-resistant. GORE-TEX offers waterproof security as every one of the millions of little holes in GORE-TEX fabric is much too small to allow even the tiniest water droplet to pass through. Despite this, water vapour has considerably smaller particles that can travel through the material, giving it wonderful breathability.
Arc’teryx TerraTex™ material, made of nylon, also offers resistance to both water and wind. Designed with windbreakers, you’ll have peace of mind that you can manage any shifting weather condition.
Are the Arc’teryx Light Jacket & Shoes Windproof?
Arc’teryx has a great range of windproof and wind-resistant jackets to keep you protected in the great outdoors. Many of our windbreakers are also water-repellant making them the perfect outer layer. Easily keep your lightweight jacket in your bag so it’s always on hand when the wind starts to pick up.
