Arc'teryx Alpha SV Glove -

When you're guiding, be it tourists in Nepal or three-year-olds in northern Minnesota, you need all of your digits to be warm and in working order. The Alpha SV Glove, Arc'teryx's heavy- hitter in the winter glove division, was designed with you in mind. Crafted from guaranteed waterproof, windproof, breathable N80p-X Gore-Tex Pro and lined with Polartec Wind Pro, this glove leaves no question as to who is the leader of the winter glove pack.

Arc'teryx applied its innovative Tri-Dex design to the Gore-Tex Pro and Polartec lining, and molded them into a glove that lets your fingers flex naturally, flipping birds or finding stable ice for climbing. The Lezanova leather palm overlay stays soft and adds a bit of grip to minimize the chances of you losing your grip on a tool or ski pole. The fully-articulated Gore-Tex Pro outer glove slips over the removable Polartec Wind Pro high-loft fleece liner. Wear the liner alone when you're trekking to basecamp in afternoon sun, or pull on the Gore-Tex shell when your guiding in temperatures hovering close to zero.

It's easy to get caught up in the fabric, but the Alpha SV glove has more to offer besides superhero-level materials for when you're going big in the backcountry or teaching the telemark tune-up clinic in January. A removable wrist leash prevents glove loss, an external wrist cinch with ladder lock buckle secures the glove in place, and a wide gauntlet slips over most jacket sleeves for an extra layer of protection against the elements.


  • Removable Polartec Wind Pro high loft fleece liner dries quickly

Lining and Layers:

  • Wide gauntlet slides easily over shell and insulation layers

Weather and Wind:

  • N80p-x Gore-Tex Pro 3L waterproof outer shell combined with leather palm overlay


  • Tri-Dex Technology uses a three-lobe pattern providing exceptional dexterity and a three-dimensional precision touch
  • Elasticized wrist closure secures glove position during adjustment; removable leashes

The Alpha SV Glove is an advanced GORE-TEX Pro Shell 3L layering system designed for backcountry performance. Engineered with the patent pending Tri-Dex Technology, the outer shell and liner feature a unique finger construction with aggressive articulation for an unparalleled anatomic fit. A removable Polartec Wind Pro liner features low-profile micro-seams, and a snow-shedding laminated cuff that remains open for easy donning during transitions. Supple leather reinforces high wear zones.

Arc'teryx Alpha SV Glove Reviews:


OK, lets get the price issue out of the way. Yea, these are stupid expensive in contrast with many other gloves on the market, however if you look for all the features in these gloves, you might find 2-3 comparable pairs.
Even though the medium would have been a better fit, I went with a large under the assumption I would wear a thin wool liner under these gloves. This has always worked well for me in other applications.
Good - Probably the best gloves in the market right now. Full use of waterproof Gore-Tex, ultra small seams of the removable liner glove, super form fitting goat leather, allowing really good dexterity. I also really like the wrist strap, the gauntlet functionality, and the fact they have leashes.
What could be better? - The back of the thumbs could have the critical nose wipe material. Nearly all cycling gloves have this feature and I've become accustomed to having that on ALL my gloves. Some mountaineering and skiing gloves also have this. These don't. Secondly, the wrist leash "keeper" is crap. The strap is OK but the keeper is a silly button you slide to your arm. How effective is it? Not. For 300 bucks I would expect a 2 cent, standard barrel cord lock on the keeper strap.
My finger tips usually get cold, hence my use of an additional super thin liner in these gloves and sizing one size bigger, so I can ball up my hands to make a fist inside the glove. That has worked really well. These gloves are good, but they are not as warm as a mitten.
I've skied in these every day for a couple of weeks in pretty blustery weather in the 20s and teens. They seem really good. Let's see how they are @ the end of the season.

This pair of gloves works like the normal outerwear layering system. It has goretex pro outer shell (which is why it is so expensive) and a removable polartec windpro fleece mid layer. To get the best out of this pair of gloves you need to get the glove size right so that you can layer different liner according to weather condition. Wear the gloves alone is definitely not warm enough in really cold condition. Extra liner is required for additional warmth and that is why the glove fingers have a short wide fitting to accommodate extra layering.

This glove has the best shell and weatherproofing on the market. I am probably going to keep the size large and I am able to use the wool liner from my guide glove in this. I don't think this is a great glove for very cold weather but for the weatherproofing and dexterity there seems to be no other. Think I will need to go for the warmer liner or use another glove when gets really cold.

I received my new Alpha SV's today, and I am very impressed!! These gloves are true to size, made very well and very warm.. I bought the Cygnus color, ( the leather is a very dark black/green )
very cool looking. I can't wait to try them out..
Arc'teryx makes great products!!!!

I have gone through a ton of gloves. Once again Arc'teryx came through. I could not be more happy with my purchase. They are so warm and with the zip cords they keep the water out when boarding.
