Lightweight, stylish, and straightforward, Arc'teryx delivers with a jacket that's great for mild winters or fall/later winter. It's not intended for temperatures around, and below freezing, and the Arc'teryx Darrah lacks lofty down insulation like the Marmot Montreaux or the Rab Deep Cover Parka. Reaching just above our knee, this jacket oozes simplicity, as there aren't many bells or whistles. If you are looking for a feature loaded model, the Canada Goose Kensington Parka, our Editors' Choice winner, might be exactly what you're looking for.
The outer material of the Darrah is mainly polyester and is water repellent, but not waterproof. In turn, it has a sleek, but durable look, thanks to minimal exterior stitching. If you live somewhere that experiences mild, wet winter, check out our Top Pick for Wet climates, the Patagonia Tres Down Parka; with three jackets in one, you'll stay warm, dry, and stylish no matter what mother nature throws at you.
