Arc'teryx Men's Alpha LT Jacket

No excess features, with everything you need and nothing you don't, the durable, dependable, and lightweight Arc'teryx Alpha LT Jacket for Men is just 12.9 oz of storm fending protection. Designed for fast alpine adventures, the Alpha LT is constructed from GORE-TEX Pro Shell 3L making it extremely waterproof, snow-shedding, windproof, breathable, lightweight, compressible, and packable. Its redesigned Speed Hood covers your noggin in a flash, WaterTight zippers seal the worst of winter, and its Arcteryx HemLock keeps the jacket under your harness as you place your next piece of protection. Don't be fooled by the weight of the Alpha LT, the supple GORE-TEX Pro may be light but it's just as waterproof and much more breathable than its heavyweight counterparts. Easily an everyday jacket, the Alpha LT is just the right weight a shell should be. The zippers are extremely water resistant, and the Napoleon pocket placement is perfect if you are using it with a harness, not to mention the foam inserts. If you're looking for an all around shell that's lighter than most but provides all of the durability of Pro Shell, this Arc'teryx jacket is it!

Typical Arc'teryx quality
I have a good friend in the outdoor industry and whenever I ask him about the merits of this or that mid-level product he commonly comes back with, "Or you could just wait until you can afford Arcteryx and then know you got the best"! Right again. I've had a series of three Marmot GoreTex parkas over the years and they've all worked quite well but once again this jacket beats them all. Outstanding build quality and features. The hood adjusts via three elastic-cord adjustments and can be made to fit well with my helmet on or off. The rear hem is a bit longer and so covers well when I bend deeply while skiing and the hem has foam inserts along the sides which keep the hem from pulling up under a harness or pack hip belt. To be honest the waterproof pit zips are a bit stiff and not easy to open/close but experience shows these loosen up in time and may just take a bit of getting used to. Overall an outstanding piece of equipment (once I chose to afford it!)

Rain Shell
I used this jacket as rain shell for my recent visit to costa rica. It was light enough to be folded and packed on my back pack. The side vents on this jacket makes it breathable on warm air and rainy day. The front pockets kept my phone dry and protected from the rain. Awesome and versitile jacket!

Great jacket
Got this jacket a few months ago, and I love it. Fantastic fit and looks great. Unbelievably water prof. If you are looking for a tough jacket that is going to keep you dry, look no further

solid purchase
I have been looking for a new rain/ascent jacket for quite some time and when i came across the Alpha LT I was sold. Without being built with Paclite the jacket is still very lightweight and very packable. The waterproofing you get is outstanding; you can see the Pro Shell at work when water is simply beading and running off the shell. And I don't find myself pouring with sweat because the excellent vapor-escape capability allows my upper body to breath, which is handy when working hard on a climb or simply walking around in rainy/muggy weather. Plan on having this jacket for years to come; I've also had the Arc'Teryx Sidewinder Pro Shell for snowboarding for a few years now and the product quality is still performing as new. I can safely say that I back the Alpha LT jacket %100.

3 ply so you always stay dry
great materials. simple and clean design. tight as a drum. you could go shower in it and never get wet. though i am pretty certain this would only make your friends know that you are crazy....about the jacket. wear it around town. on your hike. or bike ride. just wear it. and for this much should get a lot of use and a lot of value from it. simply put...this jacket rocks. get one. now.
