Hardwired for the trail, the Zeta AR is built for exploring big terrain. Protection comes from N70p 3L GORE-TEX fabric with GORE C-KNITbacker technology. This material delivers durable waterproof, windproof, highly breathable performance with a backer technology that makes the fabric exceptionally supple, quiet and comfortable. The Arc’teryx Trim fit keeps the shell close to the body to improve the fabric breathability, but leaves room for light layers. Articulation in the sleeves and gusseted underarms provide freedom of movement.
The patent-pending 3-layer GORE-TEX fabric with GORE C-KNITbacker technology provides protection with exceptional comfort. The proven bi-component GORE-TEX membrane system is bonded to a dense, extremely thin circular knit to form a supple, less bulky, durable laminate that is more breathable and lighter weight than previous constructions. The circular knit’s soft, smooth texture is comfortable, quiet, and helps the Zeta easily slide on and off over other layers.
Extended trips require smart features, fit and protection. The Zeta’s WaterTightpit zippers provide rapid ventilation. The low profile Arc’teryx StormHooddelivers full protection and cinches securely with a single adjuster for a fit that moves with the head and provides exceptional peripheral vision. The hip length with drop back hem extends coverage and rides comfortably under a hipbelt. An internal laminated pocket stows and protects a smartphone or wallet, and two hand pockets with WaterTightzippers are accessible while wearing a pack or harness.
