Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great all around jacket for all your alpine needs This jacket is wonderful. I own several arcteryx jackets and this being my first SV I am not quite sure what it deserves its premium over an AR garment but I feel this will outlast my last sidewinder AR from 10 years ago (which is still going strong, only had a zipper fail and Arcteryx covered that under warranty). Plenty of pockets and the sizing is a bit larger than i anticipated for a small. I normally wear black diamond gear for alpine skiing and those are snug/ athletic fits. This feels more like a medium by those standards, which is good for layering. Overall great jacket, will outlast me I believe.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome Jacket I bought this jacket while spending time in Alaska, my buddy has an arcteryx jacket and he seemed to comfortable, stylish and most importantly dry in Alaska rainy days, while i was wearing another name brand jacket that just seem to soak thru mid way thru the day. I finally bought mine and couldn't be happier. I can wear it alone and stay dry and warm, the pockets and vents are excellent to pack plenty of essentials and moderate temperature. I love the room I'm 5'9" 200 lbs and bought a Large, it has plenty of room and comfortable to move around while specious enough to layer up if needed. this thing seems indestructible, seems, I managed to tear a hole on the front pocket panel, while exploring some ice caves, i sent it in for a repair, the service was excellent, constant updates and the stages of the warranty. I was expecting to pay for the repairs but it was done free of charge. Im not happy with the repair, it seems like some kind of rubber sealant was used to over the hole to keep it down. still my favorite go-to jacket, for just about anything, looking to see if the repair will keep me warm and dry.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from super size hood very nice ski jacket. fit medium good for me. 5'6" 180 lbs. sleeves are long. only complaint is the hood. it is super big. I want to use this as everyday ski jacket winter to spring. What to do with hood when not a storm day. I wish it could zip off or at least have a snap to close brim to jacket. I prefer older arcteryx jacket with collar and hood. Also, offset zipper not necessary. one flap huge, the other small. I like the pocket configuration, especially, napoleon pocket. Hit and miss on design. I wish I could design my own arcteryx jacket. None are just right for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sidewinder SV Jacket Mens 2015 - Excellent Purchased a Sidewinder this season from my friends @ Mammoth Mountaineering. I also have a Saber which I love. I'm 5'9" 156-160 lbs with athletic build....I run, bike ,swim, climb and am a backcountry athlete. A Med Sidewinder and Small Saber fit me best. I've skied in Sidewinder about 20 times this year and love it. Great fit with room to layer and plenty of storage space for snacks and if needed extras. It's a little lighter and more stowable than the Sabre ....but love them both. Im currently pairing w/ Sabre pants which I purchased last year...again from my go to outfitters in Mammoth. I took a small in last years Saber pants and tried this seasons on which seemed a little more baggy than last years cut. The guys at Mammoth Mountaineering said they had heard this years pants were fuller cut. I ski both on and off-piste love the backcountry and while I like Tge pairing of the Sidewinder & Saber pants on the slopes, I'll be looking to purchase The Stinger pants to pair w/ Sidewinder or Rush for backcountry. Loving all the Arc Gear I have so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic jacket Had a previous Sidewinder SV and replaced it this year with a Grey/green example. Some improvements such as the right hand inside stash pocket, better hood (especially when fitted over a helmet), better snow skirt (with beefier stitching and connectors). The zips themselves are excellent, but the actual zipper tabs are a little fiddly with big all mountain gloves on, but then I use Vulcan style 3 finger mitts. The colours are great. As for the fit, again superior to most other jackets I have tried. The Gore-tex material is top end and I'm very happy layering up underneath this jacket. In heavy rain/snow the jacket has kept me warm and dry perfectly. Used this for 3 months in conjunction with an Arcteryx hoody, so far skiing in Japow and its been excellent. If it lasts 10 years, like the last jacket then I will be stoked. Keep up the excellent work guys.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not as good as years past Have been a fan of the Sidewinder for many years. In addition to all the good elements I liked about past models such as durability, made in Canada, design, etc., was the trim fit, the shorter length and the storable hood. Now the jacket is longer, looser and of course the hood now hangs out to fill with snow, or to flap in the wind. The last point is particularly frustrating. Even as a guide I did not like to have hoods out, unless necessary for the present or approaching conditions. As for fit, I always found enough room to allow for insulating layers that kept me warm deep into "minus territory". Then again, perhaps I am just naturally warm. Overall, the current iteration as a step backwards.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Probably the best jacket out there! I have just received my new Arc’teryx Sidewinder SV 2013 jacket and I have just tried it out in the Norwegian hills. This is my fifth Arc’teryx jacket and I was really satisfied with the revised Alpha with the new zipper and outer fabric. But this jacket has goes even further with new inventions. The jacket has all that you would expect from a 2013 model Arc’teryx jacket. The new front zipper is now water and wind proof. The new outer fabric is lighter and a lot less stiff. The new invention that I really like is the concealing of the draw cords for the hood. The mesh pocket is great for drying inner gloves or socks when you are on the move, and are easily reachable through the pit zip if you don’t want to open the front zipper. The side pockets are not that accessible when you carry a pack, but I don’t store much in them anyway. It has room for layers with the relaxed fit and hip length. In my opinion this is the best product from Arc’teryx so far. But that doesn’t mean that there is no room for improvement. I have some small issues that could make the jacket even better. If the jacket had a removable powder skirt it would be a real competitor to the Theta series for an all-around mountain trekking jacket. I know that a removable powder skirt wound add a little more weight, but it works on my jackets from other brands. I’m anyway going to replace my Theta AR with this jacket as a mountain trekking jacket despite the powder skirt. The guard behind the front zipper is extended a little bit compared to my other Arc’teryx jackets. I guess it’s done for some more protection. The laminated chin guard is nice and soft against the chin, but I would work better if the guard was mounted on the left side of the jacket. It is getting stuck in my face and bends when I turn my head. See picture. The under arm vent zippers should not be zipped all the way down when the jacket is produced. They create a little gap in the position they are stored, and it would be better if this gap could be under the arm where you are not that exposed to wind. See picture. To summarize this review, I have to say that this jacket has the potential to be Arc’teryx best selling all-around jacket. I’m definitely going to use it for most of my outdoor activity. All the way from big mountain snowboarding to high mountain trekking. And with my Alpha SV and Beta FL, the wardrobe is complete.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely the best ski jacket shell ever! I have several seasons on my Sidewinder SV jacket and it still looks brand new. I live and ski in the wet Pacific Northwest and this Gore-tex Proshell jacket has served me well. It is totally waterproof and breatheable and fits me and my long arms perfectly. I especially like the high quality construction. I have done more than a bit of bushwacking in this jacket and it is still intact. The unique zipper is very functional and there are plenty of pockets to stash just about everything but the kitchen sink. The zippers open and close easily on the pockets and also the pit zip vents. The powder skirt comes in handy on the rare occasions I actually get to ski deep powder. The recco patch is a nice plus for skiing at several of our local resorts. I need to let you know that I am a member of Mountaintechs, a group who receive and test Gore-tex products.

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.

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?
