DETAILSThe Alpha SV was created to address the need for a lightweight, streamlined, waterproof jacket that could work with a harness and withstand the severity of alpine terrain and climate conditions. Hardwearing, stripped down and unlike anything else at the time, the Alpha SV was introduced in 1998 and quickly became an icon. It still stands as an essential hardshell for any serious alpine, rock or ice climber willing to brave extreme conditions.
Constructed from N80p-X , a face fabric five years in development, the Alpha SV Jacket delivers exceptional durability, yet is supple and resilient. Engineered to shed water, snow and resist abrasion, the fabric utilizes larger yarns that are very tightly woven to create a smooth but highly abrasion resistant surface.
The Arc'teryx helmet compatible Stormhood is designed to provide the ultimate protection in cold or wet weather. The laminated brim and hood adjusters secure tightly and deliver full coverage without restricting movement or visibility. Tall collar for full coverage.
The Arc'teryx Harness HemLock insert is designed to keep your jacket from riding up when wearing a climbing harness. The foam insert can be removed when not needed.
Arc'teryx pioneered the now industry standard WaterTight zipper to seal out wind and weather, and Zipper Garages that provide additional protection from rain and snow. WaterTight zippers seal out weather. Durable and easy to use.
Ergonomic 3-Dimensional (e3D) patterning brings an additional level of articulation to provide enhanced range-of-motion. The application of e3D patterning allows for enhanced mobility for sport-specific activities in challenging environments.
Standing in as the "Arc'teryx Standard" fit, the complex patterns used utilize anatomical shaping and gussets to enhance motion and eliminate excess bulk. Trimmer than the Relaxed fit with room for a base layer, a light fleece mid-layer and a synthetic or down filled mid-layer.
