Why We Like It

Being from Seattle, I'm very particular when it comes to raincoats. For a majority of the year your raincoat is an everyday-wear item so finding one that both keeps you dry and breathes well is the holy grail.

Enter the Arc'teryx Zeta LT: a jacket constructed with a premium Gore-Tex 3-layer material that includes a waterproof and breathable membrane sandwiched between a tough and lightweight outer shell and inner liner. More, this jacket doesn't "crinkle" the way many rain coats do. The circular knit of the durable laminate has a soft, smooth texture that is comfortable on the skin and breathable. The two hand pockets with WaterTight™ zippers are designed for accessibility even while wearing your pack's hipbelt – a huge plus for traveling. So whether you're exploring the streets of Zurich, or climbing the Matterhorn, the Zeta LT will provide the protection and durability you need without compromising pack space.
