Arc'teryx no longer produces the Modon. We have a full best-in-class review of the top ski jackets available today here.
The Arc'teryx Modon is a lightly insulated shell jacket. It is built for wet and warm climates or for those that run hot. Or for those that prefer old-school layering in their ski outfits. In these applications, it stands alone in our test and as such earns our Top Pick rating. The proven Gore-Tex shell fabric, Arc'teryx's excellent durable water repellant coating, and the immaculate hood design combine to make this an excellent foul weather ski jacket. The Modon is neutrally styled, and fits most athletic body shapes very well. Elsewhere in our test, you will find warmer jackets and less expensive pieces, but none serve as well as a warm-and-wet climate ski shell.
