Alpinism, mountain exploits, ski mountaineeringï¿½all of these passions demand excellence, so why outfit yourself with anything less than the best. The Alpha SV Jacket is both the Ferrari and F-150 of the jacket world; forward-thinking design and space-age materials meet workhorse durability and guaranteed dependability, combining to form the pinnacle of alpine apparel achievement. N80p-X GORE-TEX Pro fabric offers guaranteed protection from weather while proving bulletproof to the inevitable snags, catches, and tear-inducing stumbles that come with back-country travel. The Alpha SV has ambitious objectives written all over it, with tons of climbing features that help you move in the mountains. High pockets are specifically designed to function with a harness and backpack while the helmet compatible StormHood, drawcords, and pit zippers all adjust with one hand. Ultralight Hemlock inserts prevent the jacket from riding up in your harness as you reach high for that icy gaston and WaterTight zippers seal out every last bit of weather no matter how extreme. At just over a pound, the Alpha SV is incredibly light and surprisingly suppleï¿½resulting in easier movement and wear-ability during athletic motion. There's a reason seasoned alpinists, guides, and back county adventure junkies agree that the Alpha SV reigns supreme in severe weather; invest in the best money can buy and come correct for anything that mountains throw at you.
