Why We Like It

This is a fantastic, top-of-the-line waterproof jacket.  It's extremely durable, waterproof, breathable and lightweight; and packs easily.  The design allows for full range of motion.  The hood can be adjusted easily according to your needs.


The original high performance alpine jacket adapted for LEAF environments. Windproof, waterproof/breathable GORE-TEX 3L fabric stands up to harsh, intense climates, prolonged exposure to weather and abrasion from gear and landscapes. Highly articulated patterning allows for maximum movement, minimal exposure, efficient transfer of moisture vapour to the outside and intelligent pocketing for in-field use. WaterTight zippers and Dry Cuffs seal out rain and snow and hemcord secures rapidly with one hand; pit zippers allow for rapid heat regulation. Helmet compatible hood stores inside collar. Bomber length has slightly dropped hem to limit lower back exposure.

Great Jacket-Does the Job Review by Gregory
I have two of these( Gen 1)-one for over 5 years. Perfect alone or as a shell over a fleece or a more form fitting base jacket. Lightweight and very comfortable. Not for warm weather but great for three season wear. Stowaway hood configuration the best that I have found. Velcro sleeve adapters work very well This jacket is as good as they get.

Lightweigt Review by Monika
At first i didn´t like the colour and military style of the jacket. The jacket bought my boyfriend. I used it ones when my civilian jacket was teared. He borrowed me the Alpha and since its mine. Very lightweight and comfortable, much better than my older goretex jackets. (Posted on 5/20/2014)
what you want from goretex Review by Marek
Alpha is almost classic goretex jacket. Until I packed it. You can pack it to half size than other goretex jackets. For me as a soldier is space and weight very important. What you don´t have that you don´t need but what you carry you feel every kilometer you walk. Now I have some kind of collection of arcteryx staff. Of course I have to use uniform but if you going to the forrest for a week or two so you can pack only important things and goretex you can use allways. With my staff from arcteryx I can use with uniform like Alpha, eon, rho, naga, atom and chimera, I can pack everything in half space than all my other military material from army. Of course everything in military neutral croc colour. But one more spesiality Alpha have. When you rise the hands up, its still cover you body and don´t move up like all other jackets. Becouse of experience with this Alpha gen 1 I thinking about buy of gen 2. (Posted on 5/12/2014)
let it rain Review by Darin
This one will keep you dry but does not breath very well just like all goretex. Can run a little warm with a lot of activity. All in all does its job of keeping you dry.

A shell that's all in Review by Jon
All the innovations that Arc'teryx has on their jackets are featured in the Alpha. Gore-tex XCR (now called Pro shell), a large and very adjustable stowable hood as well as plenty of storage space with 4 external and 2 internal pockets. For venting heat, it has 2 large pit zips (opens/closes both ways). Wide velcro patches on each sleeve. One detail that I like is the external pockets and pit zips use matt black rubberised zippers as opposed to the more commonly used laminated ones which are quite shiny in appearance. Ultimately, I chose to get the Alpha knowing it would be the one rain shell that would last me. (Over having to go through several cheaper alternatives which may not have the capabilities of the Alpha) (Posted on 9/17/2012)
