Wesley D.wrote a review of Arc'teryx Alpha SL Gore-Tex Pant - Men's on August 25, 2018
Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size
I was in search of a heavier weight gore-tex rain/all weather pant that was also packable which would be primarily used during my annual walleye fishing trip to Northern Ontario. The pants pack down very well into my boat bag and getting in/out of the pants, even with layers on, is very easy due to the full pant zips on each side. This past fishing trip, we had a couple of days straight of rain/wind, wore these all day and I stayed 100% dry (paired with a Stio Modis jacket - which I also highly recommend). When the rain/clouds broke - the weather remained cool due to the cold front that moved through with the rain. The pants held up to the constant wind for the rest of the trip/kept me warm and the gor-tex material shed water/fish slime well from the constant barrage of catching walleye and dealing with the occasional large Northern Pike. I typically wear a size 34 for my jeans, but I wanted a bit of a larger fit so I went with the Large/Tall size - which is the exact fit I wanted.
