Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: Runs large

A perfect combination of lightness and durability in a longer cut jacket. im 5'10" and 165lbs. I ordered a medium at first and I was swimming in it. Got the small and found a perfect fit. Just the right length in the front a rear to cover nasty gusts of wind, and nice long sleeves for those of us with ape arms. 2 hand pockets work well with a pack and without. Sleeve pocket is hit or miss depending on what you plan to put in there. Inner pocket is Huge and fits my passport and phone with room to spare (could put a flask in there if needed).
shoulders wrists and hem are reinforced with a tougher fabric, lighter weight 40D nylon in the main body keeps the weight down. Could start using 8mm gore seam in some areas to take down the weight, bulk and add a bit more breatheability. Drophood could be placed higher on the collar like previous proshell models (before F13 redesign). Im just nit pickin' a little.....
Overall great shell. Cant go wrong with a great pice like this

Richard,
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.

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
