FRONT ZIPPER LEAKS!

I can confirm what some of other reviewers posted here. The front zipper on Alpha SV leaks like hell. Contacted Arc'teryx 2 days ago, still awaiting the response. Could any of the owners of this jacket try the front zipper? Pour water over it and let us all here know. Maybe it's just a defective piece I got, maybe it's a more systematic thing.

After reading your review of the Alpha SV, I am concerned myself as I was previously intent on purchasing this jacket. I have done my research, read many conflicting reviews and am left unsure as to whether I should purchase the SV. Sounds like a high quality product, as the price tag would suggest, however........ leaky front zipper huh.
