FS: Arcteryx Javelin SV jacket, Mens Large

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
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.   Here are the pictures:

Bump for the new season, jacket is still available.  Old-school original Arcteryx quality, made in Canada.

Does the hood come off or does it stowe in the collar? Also, is there any insulation, no matter how light, like fleece in the interior?  How many times have you used this jacket?

The hood does not come off, and it does not stowe in the collar.   This is an SV-level shell, so it is built to be simple and bombproof, so Arcteryx has none of this removable hood BS (just kidding).  There is no insulation, the inner surface of GoreTex is lined with tiny, tiny short pile velvety fleece, but it is not insulation, the main function is to make the jacket fabric much quieter that the normal GoreTex.  It is warmer than GoreTex ProShell jacket, but not much warmer.   If you have ever tried on an Arcteryx Stingray jacket, the fabric inner surface is similar, although Stingray's fabric is a bit softer.  Another difference is that Stingray sits in the middle of their line, Javelin is an SV jacket (top of the line), so you get heavier duty materials, zippers, etc.  It is also a longer cut that gives you full coverage without restricting your motions.     Jacket condition:  I skied in it literally once for a trip to the East Coast, and I had it hanging in the closet in the house most of the time.  It feels and looks new.    Feel free to PM me if you have more questions.

I really love arcteryx jackets. I'm a big fan of it. Love the quality of the product and I am very comfortable with it.

Hope they can have their next design for this year.
