Weighing only 280 grams and highly packable, the Arc'teryx Women's Imber Jacket is carefully designed to stay unnoticed until it's needed. Intended as emergency weather protection for hikers, backpackers and trekkers, it is made from Gore-Tex with Paclite Technology for reliable, proven waterproof and breathable performance. Designed specifically for women, the patterning, built-in freedom of movement and careful feature placement improve the jacket's fit and functionality.Weight and space are critical factors in the jacket's performance. Exremely lightweight, waterproof and highly breathable, the Gore-Tex fabric with Paclite product technology protects from the weather and offers a higher level of comfort during activity. As the jacket is intended for periodic emergency use, a less abrasion resistant face fabric is used to eliminate weight and bulk, although the fabric's mini ripstop construction provides added tear strength without impacting weight.The trim fit reduces fabric requirements and improves breathability. Carefully articulated patterning and gusseted underarms provide freedom of movement without adding bulk. The low profile Stormhood offers complete coverage with a streamlined design. This is a true minimalist's hardshell, designed to be light, small and efficient.
