Jeremywrote a review of Arc'teryx Rush Jacket - Men's on August 29, 2012
Great jacket, but there are a couple reasons to seriously consider switching to the Alpha SV, as I did. The main reason being the increased durability of the Alpha while weighing less. The pocket location on the Alpha is more suited to wearing a pack or accessing in general, never needed the "hand warmer" pockets of the rush. Also the powder skirt is not necessary for me as I usually wear a 1/2 bib, if I really need to keep it out the Alpha has a hem cinch and a waist cinch. The stash pocket for goggles was nice when walking from the car but anything more than that and I put them in my pack or in my thigh pocket anyway since that location is a bit awkward. Also the Alpha SV allows a little more more head movement when wearing a helmet and everything is cinched tight.
