When you want to be prepared for any weather in the mountains and weight is an issue, pack up the Arc'teryx Women's Alpha SL Jacket. Its Gore-Tex Paclite shell is waterproof so you'll stay dry even if you have to descend after one pitch, and it's breathable because you need a jacket that does both when you're working hard on a send or a summit. The nylon face fabric also stands up to wear and tear so a cam or a jagged rock won't weaken your defences.

The Alpha SL has an athletic, articulated fit that shapes to the contours of your body to improve mobility and decrease unwanted bulk and no-lift gusseted underarms that mean you can stretch and reach without the entire jacket lifting up. Its WaterTight zippers seal the underarm vents to decrease bulk as well as weight. The StormHood rotates with your head's turns for unblocked vision even when you wear a helmet. The hood also allows you to pack the jacket inside it and clip it to your harness when the sun pokes out. And the laminated hem line has an adjustable drawcord that cinches tightly when the winds start howling.

Alpha SL Jacket - Womens by Arcteryx

I bought this jacket for a trip to Papua where it rains almost every day. Great lightweight jacket to pack in a backback and have with me when I need it. I will also use it at home for hiking and other outdoor activities. It is longer than most but I would still like to see this jacket a few inches longer so that only my legs would get wet if there was no shelter close by.

Great Gore PacLite shell

Straightforward, minimally featured PacLite shell great for travel and occasional use in foul weather in the backcountry
