Product Info

The Arc'teryx Alpha SV Jacket is the company's most durable GORE-TEX® Pro jacket and has lead the industry since its introduction. A new GORE-TEX® Pro N80p-X face fabric, under development for 5 years, has a softer hand and greatly improved breathability for 2014. The Athletic e3D patterning provides room for three layers while keeping your movement as unfettered as possible. WaterTight™ pit zippers allow you to vent heat quickly when the need arises. Arguably the best hardshell in the world for serious mountaineering and winter snowsports, the Arc'teryx Alpha SV is in a class by itself.

Comments about Arc'teryx Alpha SV Jacket:

This jacket is absolutely bomb proof. I look forward to going out in terrible weather conditions just to see how far I can take this jacket. Note: there is no powder skirt, just a draw string cinch chord. But I've found this is sufficient enough unless you are sliding down hills on your back (who does that?). I am 5'7" 140lbs and I originally ordered a small. The small fit nice by itself, but as soon as I put on a puffy it was tight under the arms, so I returned it for a medium. If you plan on layering I would recommend going with a looser fit!
