Arc'teryx Tauri 2018 - 2017 Review by A Better Ski
Arc’teryx Tauri Review and Video
The Arc’teryx Tauri Jacket is a 2 layer GORE-TEX jacket that contains integrated Coreloft synthetic insulation. Low bulk, nicely fitted and warm enough to keep you toasty on clod days. This has “high quality resort jacket” written all over it.
Chris’ Specs: Sizing Info
Waterproofing and Breathability: Arc’teryx Tauri is a 2 layer NB40p-X GORE-TEX shell with integrated insulation, as you would expect from GROE-Tex, this jacket comes in high on waterproofness, but the Coreloft insulation knocks the scores a bit in breathability compared to straight shell versions like the Rush and Iser. All zippers are tapped and waterproof, including the pit zip which has mesh to keep the snow out, downside, it doesn’t open as far as non-meshed pit zips, thus limits air exchange.
Warmth: The Tauri has Coreloft synthetic insulation built into the jacket. The Coreloft is low bulk and will keep you warm when it gets wet. Paired with wind protection from the shell layer, the Arc’teryx Tauri is a very warm resort option that has a relaxed fit for further layering. If you run cold, you are going to love this one, but for those of you who trent on the warmer side, this one may be too warm for when you are working hard.
Fit: Relaxed fit, with room for layering.
Features: High pockets for integration with pack, large hood for helmet use with plenty of adjustability, and plenty of pockets to stash gear/snacks.
Bottom Line: Super nice option for someone looking for a resort jacket and wants the warmth of insulation, probably not for a backcountry skier since you will heat up too quickly as you get moving.
