"No it's not just a rain jacket, if you hike or spend anytime outdoors when it's raining or even a light snow this jacket is the best barrier against both. There are very few pieces of gear I can say that I've used spring skiing then the next week used hiking on St. John's in the Caribbean. I have had the Alpha SL jacket for two years now and have used it more than any other. It has everything you need - 1) Water proof and windproof as a result of Gore-Tex Paclite, 2) looks badass, 3) great fit, 4) my favorite, pit zips that actually open wide enough to be useful. The pocket placement has also worked really well under my pack. I have used this coat for skiing/snowboarding, hiking, canoeing (4 days of straight rain in Algonquin and never got wet), and everyday use. But seriously, this is by far my favorite Paclite shell and yes you should get one too, then stop in the Rochester store and we can be twins."
The Men's Alpha SL Jacket by Arcteryx, designed for the light and fast fanatic, the Alpha SL Jacket is streamlined to deliver complete weather protection without excess weight and bulk. Appointed with all the essential back country features, this compact and lightweight jacket rides along for take anywhere storm security.
Unsurprising fact of the day: mountain storms come out of nowhere and move really quickly. What was a mellow bluebird day can suddenly turn into a serious alpine experience, and you won't be able to stay dry unless you can move as fast as the storm. Weighing in at just 10.8oz, the Arc'teryx Alpha SL Men's Jacket is a tough and compact rain shell that'll keep you one step ahead of the storm. As part of Arc'teryx's Alpha collection (the SL stands for superlight), this shell is designed to be clipped onto your harness or backpack, so you're always prepared on long climbs and alpine expeditions. Made of lightweight nylon and waterproofed with a Gore-Tex PacLite membrane, the SL sports a trim fit with e3D ergonomic and articulated construction to keep you sending during the storm, and provides clean sightlines to your harness so you can grab the right protection without hassle.
To keep carrying simple, the SL packs into its own pocket and clips to your harness via a webbing loop, keeping it out of the way but close at hand should the weather turn. If it gets really nasty, the StormHood covers your helmet and adjusts with a one-handed cinch, and a WaterTight zipper stops sneaky moisture from finding its way into your jacket. Maybe best of all, the removable HemLock foam insert sits around the hem of the SL, keeping it from slipping up underneath your harness and leaving exposed skin. If that's not thoughtful design, nothing is.
The Arc'teryx Alpha SL Jacket is designed to be extremely lightweight and packable for light emergency use. This jacket is streamlined to deliver complete weather protection without excess weight and bulk when the need arises. Built with GORE-TEX fabric with Paclite product technology, and appointed with only essential backcountry features, this compact and compressible jacket stows away easily for take-anywhere storm security for climbers and alpinists.
