Product description

The Canadian specialists have really surpassed themselves: the Arc'teryx Firebee AR Parka is a very warm, long, down jacket with good packability and low weight.The jacket is made from Gore Thermium, a virtually waterproof, very robust outer fabric that totally repels cold wind and snow and is equipped with taped seams for greater weather protection and durability.The filling is an unbelievably light 225 gram (in size M) European goose down of the highest quality, along with the premium Arc'teryx Coreloft-filling fabric of siliconised polyester. The polyester is used in those areas of the jacket, in which the more sensitive down would succumb to damp or wear: Shoulders, elbows, cuffs. So the durability and fill power of the jacket is optimised and lasting, comfortable warmth is guaranteed.The combination of lightness, good packability, outstanding insulation and the best weather protection really set this jacket apart. The Firebee AR Parka combines all these features with the characteristically simple and high-quality appearance you expect from the manufacturer, as well as a pleasant-feeling material and a sophisticated, detail-oriented construction, without superfluous extra details. The quality of the workmanship really is indisputable!The parka features two lined hand-warmer pockets, a zip-pocket as well as an inside pocket and a drawstring waist. The sleeves are elastic-edged, to make the jacket easy to throw on over other garments. This also means that the sleeves fit well under the longer cuffs of winter gloves.The two-way zip with hem button allows you to open the jacket from the bottom to facilitate ease of movement. So the hem can stay closed, but the zip can be opened to allow for ventilation or operating a climbing harness.The lined storm hood is helmet-compatible and can be adjusted one-handed and even while wearing warm mittens.The packability of the Firebee AR parka is exceptionally good relative to its thermal output, especially when compared with other jackets of this kind.With the simple design it can be worn as a sporty parka and is especially good for everyday urban wear or for winter trips in icy regions.Even in the mountains its capabilities are sure to impress, as a Belay jacket for ice climbing, a throw-on for breaks during high mountain climbing, to provide light warmth on expeditions or as an emergency jacket to keep in a backpack for winter trekking.
