The Arcteryx Alpha SV Jacket is the ultimate Gore-Tex waterproof mountain shell providing the toughest of barriers against the severest weather. With a roomy expedition cut the Alpha SV is designed to allow freedom of movement even when you have several layers of clothing underneath.
Gore-Tex Pro is the toughest and most durable waterproof fabric in the Gore-Tex range. It has been constructed for intense activity that may include frequent stops providing the high levels of breathability required by the climber, mountaineer or ski tourer.
The jacket is secured with a tough Watertight Vislon zip, these heavier zips are easier to use especially with gloves on. The helmet compatible storm hood can be drawn in with just one hand battening the hatches down. But if the weather is poor and you're working hard ventilation can be provided by through the underarm pit zips. On either side of the hem is a HemLock insert that holds the jacket comfortably under a climbing harness and prevents it riding up.
Arcteryx produce some of the world's most advanced Gore Tex garments, for more info please see our details of Arcteryx Gore-Tex construction.

I purchased this arcteryx alpha SV jacket for the alpine mountain activities, I have been checked this colour for months now and on the official website still showing out of stock, luckily I found face west got this one, and also the colour I am looking for and even better it's on sale, purchased it straight away( I think my one is the last one :)),and the delivery is pretty quick as well, totally satisfied with the product and service provided, and the reward system is great, this single purchase just got me £37.50 worth of points, now facewest will defiantly become my outdoor products shopping priority shop, and I have already recommend the shop to my friends as well.

I wanted to wait until I had thoroughly used the jacket before making any comment.
It has now been with me through some very wet days in Skye including, the Pin, and some tough work in the Uri Alps.
This is a seriously good jacket. The waterproofness I expected, but it is also very tough. It sheds scrapes and scuffs like it does water.
Construction is fantastic with well executed detailing and, for me, the fit is superb. The front pockets are well positioned and properly sized.
The idea of the small foam tubes in the jacket hem to prevent it riding up is ingenious - and works!
My only minor criticism is the hood volume which I find excessive, and although it can be easily cinched down I'd rather have had less hood to deal with - but this is not enough to detract from saying this is easily the best mountain jacket I have owned.

IMPRESSIVE - I have purchased this jacket for my forthcoming trip to Everest in April 13, ideal kit for Kathmandu up to base / ABC level. This is a high performance jacket - zero wind penetration, solid waterproof, light, flexible. Great zip locations especially when wearing a pack.
AWESOME - REALLY PLEASED.
Backed up with a great service, delivered quickly and well packaged - and a reward bonus too! Thanks
