    Description

    The Arcteryx Alpha FL Jacket has been designed for fast and light alpine ascents, though it will work equally as well as a lightweight trekking piece. This jacket truly has been designed to keep the weight right down without compromising protection from the most adverse weather the mountains may throw at you. The fit is with a regular cut with e3D - ergonomic three-Dimensional patterning that is designed to enhance a greater freedom of movement for sport-specific activities.

    Made from highly breathable and waterproof 3 Layer Gore-Tex Pro Shell fabric and to reduce the weight, the 40 denier face fabric is combined with minimal features. There is just one external chest pocket and one internal pocket. The external pocket has a water resistant zip, ideal for stashing a guide book or map and valuables can be kept safe in the internal laminated security pocket. The excellent StormHood can be adjusted with a single hand and can be fitted over a helmet, once up and cinched you can rotate your head without obscuring vision, essential when climbing. When the jacket is worn with a harness the Custom Cohaesive hem adjustments also function as a Hemlock which prevents the jacket from riding up and out of the harness.

    The Alpha FL is the official uniform jacket of the British Mountain Guides, you can read their comments below.

    Arcteryx Alpha FL Jacket Review

    Leeds.

    My Arcteryx Alpha FL arrived in super quick time after placing my order with facewest, and to say I was a little apprehensive about the colour would be an understatement as I went for the bamboo green and not the grey, anyway the green turned out to be a rather more subduedspring leaf colour and in my opinion fab.

    My main reason behind the FL purchase was wanting a no nonsense light weight jacket that would stand a bit of the proverbial stick, being used primarily for hill walking and climbing, usually with a heavy pack. Did the usual researchand checked out the other options, Alpha SL, patagonia m10 and the like but what attracted me to the FL was the considerable upgrade in shells outer fabric from the other shell fabrics, this been the Goretex pro, this feels way more substantial and yes only time will tell on that score.

    The fit is perfect for me, at 6'1 Tall and 15 stone with wide shoulders and gibbon arms so I went for the size large, there's room for layers but it doesn't look daft with just a base layer underneath either. Anyway it's my new favourite shell.

    The jacket is the perfect size, allowing for one or two mid-layers. I have only used the jacket once so far, but can already vouch for its incredible properties. The rain just beads off like rain off a ducks back, and the material is like a force field against the wind! Superb.
