Attention to detail is really very important when it comes to creating jackets that can able to withstand extremes of the weather. This is something that is being perfected by no other company of jackets out there but Arc’teryx. With its Men’s Arc’teryx Alpha SV Jacket, you will never have to worry about getting yourself safe even in the severest of the weather. SV stands for severe weather. With just the name of the jacket, you will already be able to recognize that it is really made solely for the very extreme season. All of us know that sometimes Mother Earth can really be very cruel and have some really bad mood swings that she gives off a very cold temperature. With this jacket, you will never have to fear that at all because even though it is very light (even described as ultra-light), it has a very tough and strong outer shell suitable to protect you from Mother Earth’s natural revenge to mankind.
This strong jacket is made with 3 layers of Gore-Tex Pro Shell fabric that is really very strong enough. Some parts of the jacket have reinforced materials to make them extra durable so that it can surely work its purpose of being able to resist strong winds and harsh waters. Despite its toughness, it is still able to retain some softness because you can be assured of adequate breathability with this jacket. In addition to that, the inner Gore Micro Grid lining is made less denser and much thinner so that sliding it to over your mid-layers can be pretty much without hassle at all.
As I have already mentioned, this jacket is really very light. What makes it light is the reduced number and thickness of the seams. The Water Tight external zippers with molded zipper garages are also welded instead of stitched so that it becomes completely weatherproof yet still be able to retain supreme lightness. A light jacket is really very important for most of us especially because snow and rain water can be heavy sometimes. Another thing why it is vital to have a light jacket that is also very tough is because it would be easier to carry them around with us whenever we plan on doing activities that would most likely need a tough jacket.
