The needs of ski-alpinists are evolving faster than ever. Apparel that can keep up with the new style of light ‘n fast backcountry skiing is imperative to the success of each athlete. The Arc’Teryx Procline Comp jacket started as the unanswered question that left many manufacturers and designers scratching their heads. Rather than work with old-school materials, the Procline Comp takes an advanced approach to using high performance fabrics not usually found in garments that are so breathable and yet so weather resistant. Zoned fabrics have been placed in key areas to maximize both breathability and weather-proofing. The burly Gore Windstopper can be found on the hood, front of the torso, arms, and lower back while the stretchy and breathable Fortius 1.0 was placed in the center of the back and on the underside of the arms. Articulated joints brought together with e3D technology rounds out the trim fit jacket as one of the highest performing garments on the market. The Procline Comp jacket takes apparel to a level that was previously unattainable.
