Product Technology: GORE-TEX
Gender: Mens

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.

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 awesome lightweight shell I was trying hard to decide between this and the alpha LT. I loved that the SL pullover is incredibly light and packable yet feels like it's made out of a bombproof material. The only downside for me was the paclite vs proshell, the paclite seems less breathable and has a bit of a plastic-y feel to it on the inside vs the nice soft fabric feel of the proshell in the LT. I ended up going with the LT for the breathability, but it was a really close call. If it wasn't mainly going to be a winter shell for me, I'd have taken the SL based on price and to shave off another 2oz. I wish they made an Alpha LT in the pullover format.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome coat.....Bombproof The gore-tex paclite is bombproof, extrememly light, and very waterproof. I have worn this jacket with a mid weight layer and T-shirts. Even though it has no interior liner it breathes very well not sticking to my skin. The hood is infinitely adjustable and very comfortoable. The Arc Teryx brand is generally a few bucks more but inmy experience well worth the money. This will be my shell of choice heading up to Tuckerman's this spring. The only CON I can muster up is the waterproof half zipper is a tad flimsy, although other models with the zipper flap are not as sexy, the zippers seem to be generally tougher. ,,,,Great lightweight waterproof shell!!!!!!!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Radical waterproof hoodie. I bought this thing cause I needed a lightweight and waterproof jacket for a summer in a particularly rainy part of the States. It's gortex. I've been caught in torrential downpours in this thing and it stood up to it. As for sizing, I'm just under 5'8" and about 160lbs, short and a little stocky. I bought a medium and it was just slightly too big so I shipped it back for a small. Note, the material stretches just slightly after you wear it a few times. Other notes, the hood leaves plenty of room for helmets, so if any responsible boarders or skiers out there are looking for a lightweight jacket to keep snow out on those balmier days on the slopes, this jacket won't restrict you there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Piece of Gear Wore this shell up a couple of Colorado 14ers when it was raining, snowing, and the wind was howling in the 40mph range. Used with a couple of light layers and it broke the wind and kept me warm down into the low to mid teens. The hood is HUGE. It doesn't look terrible when it's down, but you can defintely fit your climbing helmet (or two) underneath it when it's up. The jacket's more fitted towards the waist, but there's room to layer beneath it all. Coverage at the rear hem is good. I'm 5'08 185lb and the medium fits well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from First One Good My first Arc'teryx jacket and so far I'm liking it. I'm 6'1", 175 lbs and the Large fits well, ample room for me to sport the Montane 2.0 Prism beneath for warmth, however note that the waist/hem is very slightly tapered. Have only experienced moderately wet adventures thus far but it's definitely waterproof and breathability is good. Sharp looking jacket that I'm using multi-purpose. One of the side zips goes all the way down to the hem for extra easy on & off and over-all I'm finding this a good, useful item.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Four Season Lightweight Hardshell This jacket can do anything. It works fantastically in cold or hot weather. It is completely waterproof and packs down well into its own pocket. I love the front pouch--it is roomy and allows you to access the pocket very well. The pull-over style takes some getting used to. I use this jacket for the day-to-day and pull out my Arc'teryx Alpha SV when really needed. This jacket is very durable and is a workhorse. I love it! If I could only own one hardshell, this would be it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very light, technically excellent jacket. This jacket is a fantastic lightweight shell. Very waterproof with a high standard of craftmanship as you would expect from Arcteryx.,,I own this jacket in black pearl, medium. I'm about 5'11 and this is a perfect fit. ,,I've used the jacket for skiing and snowboarding as well as field work in North West Scotland in the driving rain and I have no complaints. ,,I didn't realise there are no pockets except the pouch pocket but this didn't bother me. Top jacket!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The BEST This is absolutely the best pullover shell I have ever seen or worn. I could not be happier with it. Extremely effective at repelling wind and water. The water proof zippers are great. The zippers in each arm pit are very useful (one of them competely unzips to the bottom). The length is perfect and it looks really cool. There are several ways to tighten the hood which is helpful if you are not wearing a helmet. Love it!
