I've got one of the original Sidewinders. After many years still solid as a rock. They've gone way up in price since then.

Why are these so expensive compared to alpha or beta hybrid jackets?

What kind of temp are these realisticly rated for?

Thanks

Rush and Sidewinder both have Goretex Pro, one of the reason their expensive.

These are just shell jackets and non-insulated so you definitely need a mid and base layer for colder temp.

This is somewhat off topic but I was interested in getting an Arcteryx coat for going running. What line should I be looking out for?

Good find op, too bad my size isn't here, and a medium is too big for me otherwise I'll take a red one.

After 2 years with my 2016 made in China beta AR (same gore-tex pro material) as a light everyday jacket, I don’t think I can recommend a similar jacket to anyone going into this with the expectation that this jacket will last many years. The layers on mine have separated on at least 3/4 of the jacket after 2 years of just using this for going to work (no hiking).

For the last 2 years it has been a good jacket though.

This is a hard goretex shell, made for rain and windproof. You might want something more breathable for running.

very very high chance that they will replace the entire jacket for you because of goretex delamination. they have one of the best warranties ever. you should inquire about it.

Curious. I had the same thing happen to my Cassiar. Did you put it in the dryer on high when washing? I’m thinking overly hot temperatures (in the dryer) contribute to the issue of separating layers.

Also, I RA’d my shell and they replaced it with no issue. It was 3 years old so imagine you could do the same.

I checked out the terms of their warranty last year (which seemed very vague and kind of limited) because I had a weird wrinkly spot on one of the arms, but the delamination is something new, and if what you are saying is true I will definitely take it to them and get it looked at. Thanks for the info.

I wash, dry, and reapply DWR using Grangers and use the normal settings on my machines. I heard heat was supposed to be good for Gore-Tex anyways.

I thought the same thing. But after reading up on it in various forums, many say extreme high heat can be bad. Personally I was under the impression that the heat would seal the DWR application.

Either way... take photos of the weird wrinkly parts of your shell (mine was exactly as you described) and there’s a very high chance you’re in for a brand new coat.

*edit* Better yet, if you’re in Toronto, take it to the Arc’teryx store on Queen St. They can RA and fill warrantees in house. The Yorkdale Mall location cannot.
