This jacket is simply bomber. The face fabric is burly, abrasion resistant and invincible against weather. If you hitting up some alpine routes, you won't need to worry about dragging your shoulder up some rock, or catching a tear on the Alpha SV. It'll do probably outlast you...and me....


The Alpha SV is pretty pricey at $625. However, if you are a true user, then you will appreciate this jacket and find it worth every penny. Even at that price, I still give it 5 for value. Arcteryx uses the best patterning and attention to detail anywhere. You simply do not find better fitting technical outwear. If you are getting out in the mountains for some alpine work, then you will appreciate the fact that this jacket is bullet proof and moves with you like a second set of skin.

I have had the Alpha SV in a few iterations as it has upgraded over the years. The current version uses the burliest, strongest face fabric to date. I am very impressed. I climb mostly in Colorado. This is more than enough for anything in Colorado. In terms of weather protection, you will almost never need this much weather protection in Colorado climbing. If you happen to be going for a winter ascent of the Diamond on Longs, this guy might be nice to have. I have found that the Alpha LT is a more fitting for the Colorado environment, but if you are going to be dealing with a lot of rock and abrasion, you might want to upgrade to the Alpha SV

Review:This is probably the pinnacle of alpine climbing jackets in the universe. It is pretty much invincible and the fit simply fits. The Alpha SV will never let you down.

Arc’teryx Alpha SV Jacket - Men’s

“ Let's be clear: the Men's Alpha SV Jacket carries Arc'teryx's prized SV moniker because this jacket can fend off the nastiest, most brutal weather you'd encounter during a climbing expedition deep in the mountains. For '12-'13, the Alpha Jacket was updated with exceptionally durable face fabric and a refined fit that allows more room for layering underneath. From the waterproof breathable Gore-Tex Pro fabric to the interior inserts that keep the hem in place under a climbing harness, this classic mountaineering piece screams serious business. ”
