I bought an Arc’teryx hardshell jacket and was pleased with the performance of the coat. The Arc’teryx hardshell pants share many of the jacket's performance qualities. The pants are very light and shed wind and moisture well. The construction and fit and finish of the pants are excellent. The suspenders work well and offer ample adjustment. I live in Colorado and wear these year round. Breathability is more important to me than water resistance. The Arc’teryx pants are very breathable. Zippers move easily. Occasionally, I wear crampons and the fabric on the inside of the leg of the pants did not rip when scraped by the teeth. My only complaint is the pants lack a rear pocket for my wallet.

The Alpha SV Jacket is the lightest most breathable shell I have used. The Arcteryx shell is the second XCR Gor-Tex jacket I have owned and breathes significantly better. I have snowshoed and skied in the shell and was comfortable in a wide temperature range. I was looking for a shell that works all year round in the Colorado mountains and so far I believe I have the right jacket. Fit and finish are excellent. Pocket volume is OK. The hood accomodates my old Petzl Helmet. Zipping the pit zips with one hand can be challenging. I will use the shell every week so the higher cost is well worth it. When I replace my shell pants, I will consider an Arcteryx product.
