The reason that I love Arc'teryx jackets, apart from their flawless construction and seemingly endless list of technical features, is that they give me the option of doing some extreme alpine excursions. Here's the thing about me, I probably won't do any alpine mountaineering, but I love having options. The Arc'teryx Men's Alpha SV Jacket, designed for severe conditions, opens up those options. The GORE-TEX® Pro fabric shell is fully waterproof (with WaterTight™ zippers all around) while remaining breathable, lightweight and durable enough to function perfectly under a harness. Pit-zips allow you to further regulate ventilation and temperature. While bred for mountain tops, the Alpha SV won't judge you if its primary usage is day to day comfort and protection.
