When you're looking for durable, breathable, waterproof protection at the resort or up the skin track, look no further than the Sidewinder Jacket from Arc'teryx. Boasting an 80 denier fabric weave, the Sidewinder is not only the most iconic in the Arc'teryx snow sports jackets, but also the most durable. This jacket has undergone years of alternations based on experienced customer reviews to create the ultimate ski and snowboard jacket. This season's upgrade is in the iconic asymmetric flap. A new snap system is now in place to keep the collar secure when the jacket is partially unzipped so you have more versatility when wearing the Sidewinder. A non-bulky, fully taped, 3-layer Gore-Tex construction ensures complete weather protection from rain, wind, and snow so whether you find yourself in a downpour at a resort in the Pacific Northwest or being pounded by relentless gusts on a ridge line, the Sidewinder will keep you dry, warm, and comfortable. With all this protection, the Sidewinder is still incredibly breathable. The Gore-Tex allows moisture vapor to escape while not allowing any moisture in to help regulate your body temperature inside the jacket. For maximum versatility and comfort on the slopes, the Sidewinder is equipped with a plethora of features. For starters, the underarms are gusseted so the jacket stays in place while you pole plant, trace the line with your finger you're about to ski from the base, or reach up to retrieve a lost glove after a tumble. The underarms also have venting zips that can quickly dump heat when you're working hard through deep powder. A helmet compatible Stormhood can easily be pulled on when the winds pick up on the chairlift and a powder skirt has Slide'n Loc snap closures to secure to compatible Arc'teryx pants to keep snow from creeping up the jacket when you find deep pockets.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
