Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I have the Alpha sv made of gortex proshell. I have used this jacket several times!Trips to moab, rainer, puerto rico, ecuador, florida, it works amazing in cold wet weather as well as cold dry weather. It does a great job in warm humid climates. But what surprises me the most,is its ability for multi sports!! I use this jacket for mountaineering, mountain biking, kayaking,hiking, backpacking,boating and over my wetsuit after freediving!!oddly enough it is still in good enough shape to wear out in town! It still repels water like the day I got it, Although i did buy nixwax techshell waterproofing for it, I have not had to use it. This jacket, once you get past the price is an investment you wont regret!
