Rated 5 out of 5 by from So great they should make an Emoji for it! Ever been told by all your friends that you should go see some movie because it is "Sooooooooo goooooooood"? Picture all of your friends telling you this, you just wonder - can it really be that good? Here's my story. Well, I fought the hype for a long time. All I could picture is a letdown because my expectations were so high. How could a jacket be THAT good... maybe it's a cult, maybe they just bought into the hype too and didn't want to feel that all that money went to waste. Did I drink the Kool-Aid? Did I buy into the hype? Am I part of the cult? I needed a new jacket, my current jacket gave me many years but it had seen better days. I told myself, well - just check this thing out and see. From the moment I put it on it just felt great. The fit was perfect - as a person who's usually between a M and L, I put on a M and it was perfect in the shoulders, could reach overhead without feeling like I'm fighting the jacket. The fit was stellar for me. The arms were a great length, the length was right. Wow ok maybe this is good stuff. Ok so I was pretty confident this could actually live up to the hype... but this was just the beginning of the movie. I could still get disappointed. I took home one of the blue ones - the color is actually a hair darker than the images. Its not a baby blue but just a bit deeper - its quite an awesome color actually! I definitely suggest taking a peak at it if the orange is too bright for your liking and you aren't the type that wants a black jacket. So its been a month, I've been in the rain, snow, the wind, and the cold. * spoiler alert * this jacket is hands down 100% worth it. The jacket laughed at the rain, the snow just blew right by, the wind wasn't even felt (except my poor face which I mistakenly left exposed. Now the cold - it was 10 deg and windy --- here's what I did, I layered this with my MH Ghost Whisperer jacket and I found that I was well suited to the weather. I'm a believer - this is worth it, save your $ to get it, you won't be disappointed! I apologize to all my friends who I was skeptical of and am kicking myself that I didn't buy this sooner! TL;DR - Buy this jacket NOW, stop looking elsewhere, yes spend the money, just do it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect fit, like every piece of Arc'terx gear Super light weight for it's durability and really user friendly. I'm 100% happy with my purchase. I'm 6'1" 185lbs and size Medium is a perfect fit in torso length and arm length. Western Washington had 7" of rain the last 3 weeks and a wind storm. This jacket really is a storm fortress!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product! Have only had this jacket for a few weeks but it fits well for my size (6'4" 250) and leaves enough room for layering. It provides excellent protection from the elements. If you have never had a jacket of this quality you should know that water just sheds off even in the heaviest of downpours. The pocket layout is perfect when wearing a pack. It's held up to the abuse from hiking well over 100 miles in the southern Arizona mountains through cacti and rough brush with out showing wear. Looking forward to many more "tests" of durability over the next several years!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best I bought this jacket for tournament fishing is heavy rain. It has worked better than I could have ever expected.
Date published: 2015-11-03
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant jacket This is "The" jacket which keep you warm and dry. Smart engineered hood with helmed or without it is very comfortable. I recommend the Alpha SV jacket for outdoor activities.
Date published: 2015-07-23
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just a step from perfection This jacket is like an investition, well maybe not an investition but the investition. Personally I've been checking it for a long time, reading lots of reviews and trying to figure if the price is really worth for me. I own it only about half a year, but I'm already used to it. It's very comfortable, packs really small and it's quite light to carry it almost everywhere. I've done trip to Scotland where was heavy rain, hail or wind and I felt comfortable all the time. Ice climbing, mountaneering and trekking - all these activities are very comfortable with this jacket. Material used is almost bombproof and feels very solid. I bought Cayenne version which is really bright and recognizable from long distance, but that is exactly what I wanted when hiking in mountains. (And I have to say you really pop out on photos too ;-) ) I found only one minus on this shell - when raining really heavily for a long time the neck part around mouth gets wet. This could be matter of hood adjustements, but this already happened to me few times and I still haven't figured it out.

Arc'teryx guarantees the quality and performance of all of their products. Items with defects in materials or workmanship will be replaced or repaired at the discretion of Arc'teryx for the practical lifetime of the product. Items that are damaged through wear and tear, misuse, or neglect may be repaired at a small charge.

How do I send back an item for Warranty, or get an item repaired by Arc'teryx?
For Customers in North America and Europe, Arc'teryx recommends that the product be returned to the store or site where it was originally purchased.

If this is not possible, fill out their online warranty form which can be found HERE. They will email you with full instructions on how to send your product to their Warranty and Repair Center. Do not send your item to them without first obtaining an RA number from Arc'teryx.

Arc'teryx is not responsible for items that are lost or damaged during shipping and cannot replace parcels that are lost during return shipment if proof of tracking is not available. Please use a guaranteed delivery service that provides tracking information, insurance, and proof of delivery when sending an item back to Arc'teryx.

For customs purposes, Arc'teryx requires you to provide them with a PHYSICAL address, however, your warranty/repair item can still be shipped to a PO Box.

How do I contact them with questions?
Complete their Warranty or Repair Request Form. If you have any questions or concerns, you can reach their Customer Service department at 1-866-458-2473.

What is and isn't covered under the Warranty Policy?
Defects in materials or workmanship are covered for the practical lifetime of the product. Material refers to zippers, buckles and fabrics. Workmanship refers to seams, seam tape and construction. Damage due to wear and tears such as rips, tears, abrasion or UV degradation, misuse or neglect is not covered under Arc'teryx's warranty policy but may be repairable for a fee.

What is covered under the Warranty Policy on Arc'teryx footwear?
Defects in material and workmanship will be covered by Arc'teryx for the practical lifetime of the product. The practical lifetime for footwear can vary drastically depending on the frequency and type of usage. Things such as the wearing of the outsole, frayed laces, nicks and tears can indicate that a shoe has surpassed its practical lifetime. These are examples of wear and tear or damage which are not covered by Arc'teryx. If you believe there is a defect in material or workmanship present on your product, please see follow the instructions on how to send it to Arc'teryx for assessment.

What does 'practical Lifetime of the product' mean?
Although Arc'teryx builds their products to last over extended periods of time, nothing lasts indefinitely. Materials will deteriorate and fade over time and moving parts will wear out. Arc'teryx will cover your product under their warranty policy until such a time that they have deemed the product to be worn out beyond reasonable repair. If the product is showing the signs of its age-for instance, the material has become thin or faded, there are rips and tears, the zippers no longer catch, the cuffs are fraying, or the soles are worn-they will take this into consideration when assessing your product for a warranty request. All gear will suffer from differing degrees of wear-and-tear, depending upon the user. Equipment used by an outdoor guide for 150 days a year will by comparison, degrade faster than gear used by a weekend skier. By taking care of your equipment you will ensure a longer lifetime for your gear. Arc'teryx recommends that you visit their Product Care page for more information on how to wash and care for your equipment.

Will Arc'teryx repair or replace my product?
If your Arc'teryx product fails due to a manufacturing defect, where possible, Arc'teryx will repair the item at no charge to you. They have repair centers in both Europe and North America that employ the same custom machinery and techniques that they use to create the original products. If the product is not repairable, or the cost of the repairs exceeds the value of the product, Arc'teryx may, at their discretion, choose to replace the product instead.

What happens if I rip or tear my jacket or pants?
Skis, snowboards, crampons, axes and other sharp equipment will damage clothing and gloves if they come into direct contact with them. Rips, tears, burns and punctures can occur during normal use and while carrying your equipment, and are not covered under the terms of the warranty. To assist you in keeping your product in optimal working condition, Arc'teryx offers a variety of repairs for a reasonable charge. Contact them and they will be happy to discuss your options.

What if I want to have my garment altered or tailored?
Arc'teryx does not offer custom alterations or modifications to their packs or garments at this time. For products made from GORE-TEX® fabrics they suggest using a GORE-TEX® authorized repair facility for alterations. There is a list of GORE-TEX® authorized repair shops in your area on the GORE-TEX® website.

Do alterations void my warranty?
Arc'teryx understands that individuals may, on occasion, wish to tailor their Arc'teryx products to suit their needs. If something should fail which is unrelated to any alterations, Arc'teryx will stand behind their products, provided that the Arc'teryx product is being used as intended. For a list of alteration facilities in your area, please visit the GORE-TEX® website.

How long will it take if I send my product in for warranty assessment and/or repair?
The typical turn-around time is 15 to 20 business days from the time they receive your product to the time they ship it back to you. Keep in mind that winter is the busiest season for warranty and repair service. Arc'teryx will provide you with updates and more accurate estimates throughout the process.

How do I prepare my item for return to Arc'teryx?
In order to comply with health and safety regulations, as well as for the protection of their staff, Arc'teryx kindly asks that all products be cleaned before being sent to them. Products that arrive unwashed may be subject to a cleaning fee before assessments can be made. To find out how to properly clean your garment, please visit the Arc'teryx Product Care page.

How are shipping costs handled?

Please ensure that you ship the product using a carrier that can provide you with tracking information and proof of delivery. Customers are responsible for their product until Arc'teryx has signed for its delivery.

What do repairs cost?
