Our Editors' Choice Award winner, the Arc'teryx Theta AR Women's Jacket, won our hearts for its long cut, weatherproofing, features, and mountain versatility. Thinking of going on an extended, multi-day mission? The Theta can do that. How about a quick backcountry ski on the coast? Our Editors' Choice winner is perfect for that too! What about just wearing around town? Well - of course! In comparison to the other Arc'teryx jackets tested, this one got top marks because of its ample coverage and a similar performance in weather. Plus it was $100 less than the Top Pick for Mountain Expeditions, the Arc'teryx Alpha SV Jacket - Women's. Awesome deal.
Arc'teryx discontinued this product in the Fall of 2017, but it's still available at a few online retailers, often at a discounted price. Better snag it fast if it speaks to your hardshell needs!
