The Theta SL Hybrid jacket is built for rainy days with the ability to layer underneath. The jacket comes in three colors and in sizes XS-XXL.
WHAT I EXPECTED
The typical Arc'teryx bomber construction.
WHAT SURPRISED ME
It keeps the rain out, but traps a lot of moisture once you start working up a sweat. I had to have the pit zips open at all times, except on really cold days.
HOW IT COMPARES
Not as stylish as the Showers Pass hoodie, but technically superior.
When you want a straight up shell that will keep the rain out 100 percent.
