I agree - I got to try on both of these today and the Alpha SV does feel like it will stand up to abuse more, but Patagonia had a much better fit for me. The Patagonia compared better to the Beta AR, but it is in the price range of the Alpha SV, so something must be different. Feel like long term the Alpha may hold up better, but not positive.

Why do you think it will feel better performing that the Arcteryx Alpha SV? I got to feel both jackets today and the Alpha SV felt tougher, but I like the way the Patagonia fit better. The Patagonia seemed more comparable to the Arcteryx Beta AR. But it must not be, because the Patagonia price is similar to the Alpha SV. Alpha feels like it may hold up better longer term, but not positive.
