Arc’teryx Ravenna Jacket review. OnTheSnow reviewed this shell jacket as part of its 2016/2017 Jacket Buyers' Guide.

Favorite Features: Arc’teryx never ceases to win us over with its quality craftsmanship, and that fit! Built to move, layer and seal out snow, this 3L shell will be your new alpine staple this season in an array of basics and brights paired with awesome kit combos.

Room for Improvement: The price is up there, but it’s so good on, we think it’s money well spent for a so-money jacket.


Fit: See above; dialed. It stretches and forgives, don’t let the “trim” spec scare you away.

On-Snow Performance: Arc’teryx continues to sparkle in the fit department, also providing top notch moisture and wind protection in action. Our tester found the tall, insulated collar to be a very comfortable shield against the elements when fully zipped with plenty of room for layers underneath. She also appreciated the soft, quiet and stretchy fabric of this lightweight jacket that's warm enough on cold days with just a thin down liner. Said tester was only left wanting for a wider cuff to better accommodate being worn over a glove, longer vents to allow more airflow and a bit more room in the hood when worn over a helmet, which, on the flip side, did provide great wind protection.

Manufacturer Description: Designed for the resort, the Ravenna provides full protection in a trim, refined fit that moves with your body. The waterproof, windproof, breathable N70s-4 3L GORE-TEX® fabric offers four-way stretch to hold the fit while providing exceptional comfort and freedom. A brushed flannel backer adds warmth. Features are thoughtful. The removable DropHood™ integrates with an insulated collar for coverage and comfort on frigid lifts, a powder skirt seals out snow, and a sleeve pocket holds your RF pass.
