Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best ski jacket ever, by miles! Just back from Zermatt, where my beloved skied in her new Arc'teryx Andessa jacket. Not just the coolest jacket on the slopes, stunning in black with a raspberry colour lining, but warm as toast , even when -18C and 100 km/h winds! Totally elegant cut, she looked just the business! Wears it all the time in the city too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sophisticated I love the Andessa Jacket! The sheen of the fabric combined with the center front flap and self cuff tabs gives this jacket a unique & classy look. The Andessa's combination of Gore-tex and Down always leaves me feeling comfy and dry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great timeless piece that will last for ages! Bought this as a gift for my mother and it is a very well made jacket. The combo of down and waterproof outerlayer was exactly what we were looking for. Also, the look is very versitile that it can be worn at the resort and not look like a typical ski jacket. The black with satin magenta inside has a great look.

Does the down poke through the jacket or fall out eventually?

Asked by: Sasaki
As in many down products, it’s possible you may find an occasional down plumule make its way through and fall out.
