Product Description Item No.   10251194

The Arc'teryx Men's Alpha SL Jacket is a waterproof jacket for alpine climbing. The SL stands for super lightweight, given its name due to the Gore-Tex PacLite fabric used to keep you dry and comfortable on the mountain. The Gore-Tex not only blocks snow and rain, but wind as well for all around storm protection. when not protecting you from the elements the Alpha SL can be packed down small into the included stuff sack, so it won't take up too much space in your backpack. The trim fit is close to the body and allows for a base layer underneath allowing movement and ensuring there won't be any extra fabric to get caught on gear. A single pocket stays out of the way of your harness and hangs onto a small item such as your headlamp.

Products on Sale are Discontinued Styles or Colors.

GORE-TEX Paclite

GORE-TEX Paclite
GORE-TEX Paclite is the gold standard for lightweight, breathable elemental protection. Paclite jackets are extremely packable and great to have on hand for windy or rainy conditions. It's like wearing an umbrella, but probably 25x more comfortable. Plus you won't get questions like, "Are you wearing an umbrella?" or, "Why are you wearing an umbrella?"

GORE-TEX

GORE-TEX
If you haven't heard of GORE-TEX by now, you've probably been living under a rock. And that would make sense, because living under a rock is probably the only place where you wouldn't need the durable waterproof and windproof protection that GORE-TEX fabrics offer. So when you're ready to venture out from under your rock, arm yourself with the comfortable protection of GORE-TEX.

ARC'TERYX MEASUREMENT and FIT GUIDE

HOW to MEASURE:

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.


FIT TYPE INFO and DETAILS:

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 This is the exact jacket I was looking for! I have the Fission SL for the super cold and couldn't be happier with it's performance. I knew that I needed something for the more mild temperatures (especially for skiing), and didn;t look any further than the Alpha SL. It fits any requirement I may have and then some!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect jacket I love this! I saw the quality of Arc'teryx jackets is a local store but it was $500+ and too expensive for me. I saw this one at 300 and bought it and the quality is top of the line. Completely water proof, perfect slim fit, great adjustable hood. I love it. looking forward to many adventures in it. No complaints from me

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good jacket A typical Arcteryx product, excellent all around! I had Alpha SV and it was overkill for my use so I sold it and got this instead. I am happy with it as this is much lighter and has better fit. If you don't plan to use this shell in the wild, this is perfect!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good blend of form and function Looks good and fits well. The pocket provides ample storage for personal items and the fit is large enough to layer underneath, but not too bulky. Arcteryx costs a little more but it's definitely worth it. Just wish they had a pullover version.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nice but not great Was surprised that this felt more like a wind breaker I could buy for $100 than that special satisfaction you get when you add another Arcterx to your collection.
