The Alpha SV, the most durable Arc’teryx hardshell for climbers and alpinists, is now stronger and lighter. Exceptionally hardwearing waterproof, breathable N100p-X 3L GORE-TEX® Pro fabric delivers outstanding abrasion resistance. Optimized construction, WaterTight™ zippers with RS™ sliders, and minimized seams shed grams. Fully featured with a helmet compatible StormHood™, pit zips, and articulated construction, the Alpha SV remains the proven choice for extended use in severe conditions.
