Created specifically for women facing the harsh environments encountered in rock and alpine climbing, the Psiphon SL provides essential protection from wind and precipitation. Constructed from a superlight, densely woven nylon/elastane blend fabric, Nylaz, the Psiphon delivers superior abrasion resistance. The Trim fit stays close to the body to minimize snags and maintain line of sight, and Arc’teryx HemLocks™ keep the Psiphon secure and comfortable under a harness.
PERFORMANCE DRIVEN FOR WOMEN
Purposeful design is an Arc’teryx commitment. This includes a no compromise approach when developing specifically for women. With a focus on athletic freedom and performance, the Psiphon SL fits women’s bodies, enhances ergonomic freedom, and offers thoughtful feature selection and placement. The Psiphon is indicative of the longstanding Arc’teryx commitment to deliver use specific, performance driven products for women.
Mixed conditions need adaptable features. The Psiphon SL Pullover’s helmet compatible Gossamera nylon hood provides wind and weather protection and features an easy, quick one handed adjustment. When not deployed, a unique snap system secures the hood in windy conditions, but keeps it right at hand should the weather shift. If not needed at all, the hood is completely stowable and out of the climber’s line of site. Arc’teryx put a high level of focus on choosing materials and winnowing features to the purest essentials to save weight and maximize compressibility. The result is a full coverage hoody that packs to the size of a climbing shoe.
