Minimalist excellence could use a few touches I bought this Sidewinder AR Jacket after considering the Sidewinder SV, which has gotten a huge amount of recommendations from the community. Overall, the materials and construction of this jacket are the best I've ever seen. The jacket is not really insulated, which makes layering a necessity. I do wish that the jacket were a little bit longer (1-2") - I think the powder skirt would be more effective if that were the case. As it is, it is placed a little high to have much elastic strength around the right spot on the waist/hips. I also wouldn't mind one more pocket to make it easier to stow gear for the lunch lodge. That being said, this jacket and Arcteryx will be my preferred brand for the foreseeable future.

A Great Ski shell
Posted by Ahoff :

Arc'teryx Sidewinder AR Jacket is a great winter ski shell. It is unbelievably windproof and waterproof yet very light. The pockets are well placed and easily accessible and the overall functionability of the jacket is high. My only gripe is the hood, which when worn is good, when folded it makes a large lump on the neck that sometimes can be a nuisince. Overall I love the Sidewinder AR Jacket.
