A CLEAR VIEW
One of the most essential features is also the hardest to achieve. There are invisible layers of ingenuity and Arc’teryx DNA hiding beneath that seemingly simple StormHood™.

THE KEYS TO MAKING IT POSSIBLE
All those meticulously designed patterns and multi-layer construction need something to give it shape. The laminated brim must stay intact and not collapse, crush or crease when being compressed, and still bounce back after being packed.
The compression system works in conjunction with a stovepipe shape to do two crucial things: first lock the hood into position, and then allow your head to twist and turn without obstructing your view.
