Designed for skiers and snowboarders who know how to maximize on area days and take the time to explore off piste, the Tantalus Jacket is a richly featured, durably constructed hybrid GORE-TEX® shell. Built from two types of GORE-TEX® fabric, the Tantalus delivers hardwearing windproof, waterproof breathable protection with moderate warmth. Snow shedding N150p 3L GORE-TEX® fabric with tricot technology is used in the shoulders, lower back, hood and forearms to provide serious abrasion resistance in these high wear areas. The jacket's body, back and upper arms are made from a N70p 3L GORE-TEX® fabric with lo-loft soft shell construction. Hardwearing, weatherproof and comfortable, this fabric is soft, quiet and has light backer for warmth.
MOVEMENT and SYSTEM
Freeride skiing and snowboarding involves dynamic movements. The jacket is constructed with the Arc'teryx Athletic fit and Ergonomic 3-Dimensional (e3D) patterning to allow extra space in key joint areas, creating a high level of articulation. Gussets under the arms provide additional freedom. Equipped with the Arc'teryx Slide ‘n Loc™ attachment, Tantalus links with the Sabre and Stinger pants to create a unified clothing system that helps seal out driven snow and move with the body.
FEATURED for FREERIDE
The helmet compatible StormHood™ delivers complete protection with a high level of visibility and freedom of movement. Pit zippers provide rapid ventilation on ascents, and the integrated powder skirt seals out snow when blasting through powder on the way down. Pockets include two hand pockets, an easily accessible chest pocket, a laminated internal pocket for wallet or smartphone, and an internal mesh dump pocket for skins, goggles or gloves. All of the external closures use Arc'teryx WaterTight™ zippers.
