Reasons NOT to buy:

User Reviews

  • There is only one inside zipped pocket.
  • Fit can be tight depending on your build.
  • The lack of two-way zippers makes it hard to improve fit and ventilation.
  • This jacket’s longer fit can be too long for shorter individuals.
  • High chest pockets can be hard to access in a pinch when wearing a backpack.
  • Until broken in, the Gore-Tex Pro material crinkles.

Expert Reviews

  • The powder skirt is only compatible with Arc’teryx pants.
  • At times, more ventilation is desired.
  • Because of its lightweight construction, there is no added insulation.


The Arc’teryx Rush Jacket for men was built with the high intensity winter athlete in mind. While providing the bells and whistles, this jacket still manages to be lightweight. It has rock solid weather protection, breathability, and durability, all of which comes, of course, at a premium cost.
