Arc'teryx Arc’teryx Alpha FL Gore-Tex® Jacket - Waterproof (For Men)
Closeouts. Arc'teryx's Alpha FL jacket is designed for speed hikers and alpinists that move fast and light in all weather conditions. Ultralight Gore-Tex® Pro shell construction makes this 3-layer shell windproof, waterproof breathable and extremely packable.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Shawn from Orlando, FL on Wednesday, December 23, 2015It is a Gore-Tex Pro jacket with only 10 oz weight. The M size fits me well (5'8" 155 lb). It is an athletic fit. It still looks fit even I do not wear any layer beneath it. I can easily put an Atom LT under it without feeling bulky. Thanks for the Gore-Tex Pro laminate, it is quite breathable compared with Paclite, Hyvent and Omnitech (I have shells made of these materials). The inner surface is comfortable on bare skin. In contrast, Paclite feels cold and sticky on bare skin. The length of this jacket is perfect for me (longer than beta series and shorter than theta series) I did not have a chance to test it outside. But I did the waterproof test under a shower head. The inside of jacket is completely dry.
Buyers should note that this jacket has only one chest pocket and there are no pit-zips. That is how Arc'teryx keeps the weight down.
This jacket can be packed into a very small stuff bag (come with the jacket). I think this jacket can be used in most of the environments including severe weather conditions.
