Launched at SHOT Show 2020, the Cold WX LT [GEN2] is a synthetic insulated cold weather windproof jacket, hoody, and pant that is worn when conducting direct action tasks in cold weather conditions. It exemplifies the relentless commitment to incremental performance advancements. The CLIMASHIELD 3.0oz Prism Fiberfill has increased hydrophilic capabilities, increasing performance by handling sweat caused during high output activities. The weather shedding 40d (30d for MultiCam® version) GORE® WINDSTOPPER® 2L manages inclement conditions with ease.

The COLD WX LT [GEN2] line consists of a Jacket, Hoody and Pant.





I’ll be the first to admit that with so many options, it can be a bit overwhelming to choose which Arc’teryx jacket is the right one for a given activity. I used one of the jackets during an ice climbing trip earlier this year. In fact, most of us on the trip were outfitted with one. Activities included hiking in crampons up and down trails to the various ice faces along and climbing up those faces. In between, time would be spent either belaying fellow climbers or standing around waiting for our turn to climb. So the conditions were much like a professional user. We had movement interrupted by sedentary periods. It was pretty cold (down to the teens) but warmed up if you could get in the sun. I never overheated in the jacket, but did vent the front zip during movement. Once we were on-site the Windstopper shell was welcome to shed some of the breeze that would occasionally pick up and dust us with loose powder. Because of this, I was glad I had the Hoody as I really added my Alpha LT Shell to the mix. As for pants, I wore Wool long underwear and Alpha Pants. Although I brought COLD WX LT [GEN2] Pants with me in my pack, I never bothered putting them on since I was able to move around enough to keep my legs warm. This is the way to go if you’ll be moving around in cold weather.

The COLD WX LT [GEN2] line is offered in Jacket, Hoody, and Pant, both in solid colors and MultiCam.
