Product Description Item No.   10251186

The Arc'teryx Men's Alpha AR Jacket is a climbing jacket for all-around conditions when tackling rock, ice or alpine. The Alpha AR has an athletic fit so it won't get caught on gear along the way, as well as e3D patterning, so the jacket moves with you instead of against you. The N80p-X and N40p-X GORE-TEX® Pro 3L fabrics combine to create durable, yet lightweight waterproof and windproof protection in the mountains. Finished with a durable water repellent, you'll also find that water will bead up and roll off the surface, instead of soaking in and causing a bad time. The StormHood™ is adjustable with a laminated brim that even functions over a helmet. The breathable GORE-TEX® fabric won't leave you feeling clammy, but never fear, pit zips have been included for releasing excess heat on the move. Don't let weather ruin your outdoor fun.

Chest / Bust - Measure around your chest / bust, holding the measuring tape under your armpit.

Waist - Measure around the natural waist, which is often the narrowest part of your waist.

Hip - Measure around your hips at the widest part.

Sleeve Length - With your arms in a slightly bent position, measure from the center of the back of your neck, along the length of your arm, to the wrist.

Inseam / Pant Length - From a standing position, measure from your crotch to your ankle.

Head Circumference - Measure the full circumference around the widest part of your head.

Hand Length - Measure from the tip of your middle finger to the base of the palm.

Hand Width - Measure the circumference of your hand around the knuckles, excluding the thumb.

• Please note that all the info provided above refers to body measurements, and NOT the dimensions of the garment.


Next to Skin Fit - These snugly-fitting garments are made with stretch fabrics to fit next to the skin to enhance moisture management and thermal efficiency. Garments in this fit category when constructed using Arc'teryx's heavier-weight AR and SV fabrics also perform very well as mid layer pieces, and users should consider selecting a larger size to accommodate a base layer underneath if the intention is to use this layering system as a mid layer option.

Trim Fit - Trim-fitted garments share the motion-friendly traits with Arc'teryx "Athletic" fit garments, but are patterned with lower volume for reduced bulk. These close-fitting pieces layer well under other garments.

Athletic Fit - This is the "Arc'teryx Standard" fit. These complete patterns utilize anatomical shaping and gussets to enhance motion by minimizing excess bulk. Easy layering under or over each item extends seasonal versatility and comfort.

Relaxed Fit - Relaxed fit garments rely on higher volume patterns and a reduced amount of articulation to offer roomy mobility.

Expedition Fit - Cut roomier than the Arc'teryx Athletic fit and suitable for winter/extreme conditions, Expedition (XPD) fit garments are cut larger to accommodate multiple layers without binding or restricting movement.

• You can find the fit type and additional fit info for Arc'teryx styles in the product description FEATURES and SPECIFICATIONS.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb shell for winter excursions Fits 1/2 size large to allow for ample layering - I can layer a Cerium SV and a Fortrez hoody underneath comfortably. Jacket has very well designed pit zips, chest pockets, and the overall cut is superb. Easy mobility in any situation. Goretex pro material is very waterproof even in hard downpours, and remains decently breathable. Since this shell is wind resistant, the breathability is mediocre compared to NeoShell, which is awful for winter conditions due to wind.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Product I bought this jacket for a photography trip to Iceland. I needed something that would hold up to the wind, cold and wet of Iceland. I needed something to keep me warm while out at night waiting for the phenomenon of the northern lights. This product delivered. It was light enough to travel long distances with yet insulated enough to keep me warm and dry. I did not feel the wind at all with this on. Fantastic product that delivered in every way.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed after only a few months of light use the exterior stopped shedding water. the water soaks through the jacket . I never washed the jacket so the exterior treatment should not have failed. The interior started to delaminate near the hood. Not what one would expect from a jacket that retails for over 500 dollars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from the best all round jacket I am 6' tall with 36" waist and bought a size L AR jacket. It fits me well with enough room for my down mid-layer. The DWR is insanely durable and this jacket is totally waterproof. I walked through a torrential rain for around 5 mins, I still got dry. No rain soaked into my skin!

Just Curious as to how warm this jacket is? With a base layer, Long sleeve shirt, and maybe another lighter jacket, how warm would I be fishing all day sun up until 3 on a windy day? Thanks

Asked by: skeeter8008
Hey there, This jacket is designed to be worn as an outer protective layer against wind and rain in conjunction with a more insulated inner layer. With the correct layering such as a light jacket underneath it will help to keep you warm and dry in wet or windy conditions, so it sounds like the setup you described would work great. I hope this helps.
