Anyone know the length of the front zipper in a size Medium?
All of them use Gore pro shell so they are all waterproof and breathable. All will suit your needs as a do everything jacket. The differences between each jacket will be the cut/length, face fabric and features. The theta are cut the longest, The alpha SV will have the most durable face fabric and the Alpha LT will be the lightest (with least amount of features). I prefer the fit of the Theta AR to my Alpha SV jacket.It has held up to some good abuse with little to no signs of wear. I also prefer the hand pockets to the Alphas Napoleon pockets. My vote is go for the Theta AR and save yourself a few $ in the process.
My $0.02, deep powder= bibs
Slide n' loc didn't work for me. I have a medium Rush matted to a medium sabre pants (also tried it with my small Keibo and medium sabre pants). The length of these jackets means that the snowskirt locks into the back of the pants quite high. I pefer to have the rear of the gripper elastic as low as possible. I stopped using it and let teh powder skirt do its job independant of the slide n loc
These are pretty trim fitting jackets,So sizing can be a bit tricky. If you get very warm you may look to a jacket with pit zips. I would have suggested a Large in the ALpha AR jacket. It has more room in the torso and a slightly longer cut, plus the added bonus of pit zips (with minimal weight penalty)
Cleans your waterproof gear properly. But some stubborn stains may still require a little spray and wash directly on the area. I usually prefer the 2 in 1 solutions (ie grangers) that cleans and replenishes the DWR coating in 1 wash.
Overall good product to take care your spendy gear
