What is the best part of winter? Most definitely not the cold. What, then? Well, winter sports, of course. Skiing, snowboarding, mountain climbing and a whole lot of other sports that can be enjoyed during this season.
But in such weather conditions, wearing appropriate clothes is a necessity and sometimes it’s not as easy as it may seem. You don’t want to be cold, but you don’t want to wear too many clothes, either. That’s why jackets were made. Not all jackets are suitable when you’re climbing up a mountain, though, so that’s why sport jackets were made.
From insulated jackets, to loose fitting ones, Arc’teryx has thought of everything to keep you warm while you wrestle with snow.
