I am selling a like-new Arcteryx Javelin SV jacket. I have not been using it, so as much as I love it, it does not make sense to keep it sitting in my closet. This is an original Arcteryx, circa 2006, when everything was still made in Canada. This is a full-length ski parka, member of the Descent dedicated ski gear line, and is marked SV for "Severe Weather". Like every SV jacket is complete with pitzips, helmet-compatible hood, fully taped seams, underarm vents, and a powder skirt. The material is GoreTex SoftTech, which is a bomber rip-stop three-layer GoreTex laminated with a thin fleecy material that makes it a lot less noisy (I believe they changed the name to GoreTex SoftShell when the soft shell craze hit; in reality, this is a hard shell material, as it is totally waterproof and windproof). The main zipper and the pocket zippers are waterproof, the pocket zippers are also protected by flaps, so they would never leak. The jacket is top-quality in and out; Arcteryx just does not make jackets like this anymore.
The condition is like-new, I ski in a different jacket, this one is my spare... I did add extra zipper pulls next to the original pulls to make it easier to open with gloves, but you can always take them off. Arcteryx SV-level jackets retail for $550+ nowadays, I am asking $250.
