Alpha AR Jacket
The Arc'teryx Women's Alpha AR Jacket is a versatile, technical, all-round shell for any alpine pursuit where you need dependable protection. Its Gore-Tex Pro 3-Layer membrane guarantees waterproofing and high levels of breathability, while the lightweight face fabric and reinforced high-wear areas make the jacket ready to hold up to seasons of contact with rock, ice, and being stuffed into your pack.
Arc'teryx's e3D ergonomic design ensures a full range of movement and easy layering, letting you move unrestricted up alpine walls, frozen waterfalls, and steep skin tracks. When the weather turns really gusty, the StormHood fits nicely over your climbing helmet, and the adjustable hem seals out any cold air from permeating into your layers.
All of the external zippers on the Alpha AR are WaterTight to prevent moisture from seeping through your pockets. The large hand pockets are strategically placed high on the jacket so as not to interfere with a backpack or harness waist belt, allowing you to easily access your essentials while on the move. If things get too toasty, large zippered underarm vents let you take control of your own temperature regulation so you can travel comfortably through the mountains.
