The combination of 750-fill European grey goose down and perfectly placed synthetic insulation makes for a perfect cold weather jacket or ideal mid layer in extreme conditions that I can face here in Canada, Iceland, or any other location that puts me in situations where I’m dealing with snow, sleet, freezing rain, and maybe even fire and brimstone. With this very well insulated jacket, warm air stays in close to my body and cold air stays out. While that sounds like it should be a simple thing for winter jacket to do, I’ve yet to come across one that works so well in such a light package. I always have to take into consideration the weight of my clothing and gear since I travel all over the world to earn a living. Weight is my enemy and since that’s the case this jacket is one of my best friends.Alone, this jacket is ideal for most cold weather situations but when facing rain and wet snow I pair it with my Beta AR hard shell and I’m ready for the worst weather possible.
Being comfortable when working allows me to concentrate on trying to create the most beautiful images possible. Being cold, wet, or a combination of both of those things distracts me from my goals. Thanks to the proper clothing from Arc’teryx I’m able to think less about being uncomfortable and more about my photography. The Thorium is just one piece of the puzzle that helps me get to work and keep working. Thanks Arc’Teryx!Read more about the Thorium AR Hoody on Amazon.
