North Vancouver, BC (December 2018) – Freeride Touring demands that backcountry skiers and snowboarders step into winter on its terms in order earn the right to carve their way down pristine, untracked powder. Navigating a full day of grueling ascents and aggressive descents requires lightweight clothing that can meet the demands of shifting output levels and unpredictable conditions.

Working as a system, the new ARC’TERYX Whiteline Freeride Touring products deliver the comprehensive weather protection, freedom of movement and thermal regulation required for deep backcountry days—doing it with an aesthetic rooted in the soul of Freeride Touring.

Designed specifically to save on weight for easier ascents without sacrificing ski-essential features, the new ARC’TERYX Fall/Winter 2018 collection offers an effortless fit; articulated to allow for efficiency of movement. Performance Gore-Tex® Pro offers ultimate protection from the environment.

Thanks to the ski-friendly feature set, you’ll seldom have to suffer cold fingers. The Cohaesive™ hood and hem adjusters make adjusting the Rush LT Jacket’s fit exceptionally easy, even while wearing heavy gloves. While Slide N’ Loc™ attachment points located at the bottom of the jacket make it possible to secure compatible pants to help keep powder where it belongs—on the slopes and away from your body.

Weighing a mere 430 grams, the new Rush LT Jacket will never slow you down. But just because it’s feather-light doesn’t mean its light on features. The jacket’s minimalist design doesn’t forgo ski-essential details.

Primarily constructed out of waterproof, windproof N40p Gore-Tex Pro®, the Rush LT Jacket (SRP 650 €) provides durable, breathable protection from the elements. High wear areas around the shoulders and hips are reinforced by robust N80p-X Gore-tex Pro®.

A helmet compatible StormHood™ offers adjustable, full-coverage head protection, outstanding freedom of movement and peripheral vision.

During high output portions of your day, quick heat dumps are made possible by the jacket’s WaterTight™ pit zippers, even while wearing a pack like the Alpha SK 32 Backpack.

Small electronics and other backcountry essentials are always close at hand in two pack-compatible chest pockets.
