David W B.wrote a review of Arc'teryx Alpha SL Jacket - Men's on April 30, 2017
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
This jacket is ideal. I wear it a lot and when I'm not, I store it in the nylon pouch it came with. It is lightweight, comfortable and keeps me very dry in heavy rain. I've worn it in driving rain and I was completely dry. I do not miss pockets at all. Only having the chest pocket is enough. Less pockets makes the jacket lighter and look better on. The jacket weighs next to nothing and is easy to carry in its pouch wherever you go just in case you need it. I live in Maine and the weather can change without much warning. I ordered an extra large just to have room to layer. The extra large is roomy but not too big. A large would have been plenty big enough though. I'm completely satisfied.
