Designed for tough weather and nearly impossible things like rock, snow and ice climbing, the Arc’teryx Alpha SV hardshell is as impenetrable as jackets come. The perks: it’s durable, breathable, lightweight, comfortable and waterproof, and protects you from the elements. The only apparent downside is its price tag–these go for about $600 USD a pop. However, as you will observe in this video, one pays for exceeding quality and detail when they invest in an Alpha SV Shell. This 10-year-old classic has been redesigned with E3D patterning for an increased ergonomic fit, and N80p-X GORE-TEX® Pro fabric for extreme waterproofing and abrasion resistance. If you like what you see, you can pick up an Alpha SV Shell from official Arc’teryx stockists.
