This Is The Lightest Waterproof Insulated Arc’teryx Packable Jacket Ever

Arc’teryx’s Norvan SL (short for “Superlight”) was already one of the best ultralight minimalist packable jackets on the market. But, as they’re a brand known for innovation, the Canadian outfitters knew they couldn’t simply rest on their laurels. So they improved it and rereleased it as the Norvan SL Insulated Hoody.

A lot of the things that made the original jacket great are back in this new edition — including its minimalist silhouette and ability to pack down into an integrated travel bag. It’s also equipped with a DWR finish and GORE-TEX Shakedry technology for exceptional waterproofing. But this one also now has some extra warmth thanks to Coreloft Compact 40 insulation — making this a true, versatile 3-season jacket. It’s a bit heavier than its 4.2-ounce predecessor, due to the added insulation, but at 9.5 ounces it’s still exceptionally lightweight and perfect for high-intensity outdoor activities, as well as travel. Get one now for $399.
