- Expensive but worth it. Review by beastie
Value Quality Price
Expensive but worth the price. Best shell on the market and the urban wolf color looks great on it. Great quality construction and is made in Canada. Shell is super light weight and is easy to pack. Very water proof and works great when layered with fleece or insulation layer as a winter jacket in cold conditions. It is expensive but hard to find a better shell.

- Okay Quality Review by phon
Price Value Quality
I'm 5'11" 190lb and I went with large. Fit a little big for me. Arcteryx sizing a little bit confusing. Atom LT I went with Large and it fit perfect, Nega hoody Large is perfect but Chimera shirt I have to go with M.
If I ware Alpha LT with just a long sleeve T-Shirt it’s kind of big on me and if I put Atom LT as a mid layer it fit okay but still baggy. If I go with medium it would be too small and have no room for mid layer.
But I’m okay with the size.
Now, the stitching on this jacket is perfect but a lot of glue residues left over by the Arcteryx logo and some on the sleeve. Look like the size of a pen mark and a lot of them and it stand out because the residues it’s black and the jacket is wolf. Look like someone wipe crazy glue on it. I didn’t check it well enough so I cut out the tag and now I don’t think I can exchange it. A little disappointed but I’ll get over it. This Jacket was on back order so I wait for almost a month to get the jacket. As soon as Us Elite Gear got the shipment they send it out and it was fast. Thank you Us Elite Gear.

- Alpha LT Wolf Review by Debo
Value Quality Price
Alpha LT is ultra thin and light. Its practically paper thin. I love the style of the jacket, especially the wolf color. I also like that it has less of "tactical" look than the Alpha. Keep in mind, however, that its just a shell. If you're looking for more of a cold weather jacket you'll need to include a liner. Recommend the LEAF ATOM LT.
