Anonymous wrote a review of Arc'teryx Alpha SV Jacket - Men's on February 19, 2007
Every time i put on this jacket I smile, the fit and finish is absolutely fantastic and second to none.
Arc'teryx decision to change the front zipper to one that is more coarse but still waterproof instead of the fine-tooth one they also use for the pockets is definitely an improvement.
The only "problem" is that loosening the Velcro-straps while wearing gloves is not easy but a minor problem.
Breast pockets are nice and roomy and will fit much gear and even big gloves.
All in all an excellent choice, would do it again, though price is a bit steep.
