Product description
Unsurprising fact of the day: mountain storms come out of nowhere and move really quickly. What was a mellow bluebird day can suddenly turn into a serious alpine experience, and you won't be able to stay dry unless you can move as fast as the storm. Weighing in at just 10.8oz, the Arc'teryx Alpha SL Men's Jacket is a tough and compact rain shell that'll keep you one step ahead of the storm. As part of Arc'teryx's Alpha collection (the SL stands for superlight), this shell is designed to be clipped onto your harness or backpack, so you're always prepared on long climbs and alpine expeditions. Made of lightweight nylon and waterproofed with a Gore-Tex PacLite membrane, the SL sports a trim fit with e3D ergonomic and articulated construction to keep you sending during the storm, and provides clean sightlines to your harness so you can grab the right protection without hassle.
To keep carrying simple, the SL packs into its own pocket and clips to your harness via a webbing loop, keeping it out of the way but close at hand should the weather turn. If it gets really nasty, the StormHood covers your helmet and adjusts with a one-handed cinch, and a WaterTight zipper stops sneaky moisture from finding its way into your jacket. Maybe best of all, the removable HemLock foam insert sits around the hem of the SL, keeping it from slipping up underneath your harness and leaving exposed skin. If that's not thoughtful design, nothing is.

Question from Michael | Zwönitz

Hallo liebe Bergfreunde,
ich bin seit einiger Zeit auf der Suche nach der einen Hardshelljacke, die mir passt und meinen Anforderungen entspricht. Ich würde hier gern wissen, wie sich das Material (GoreTex Paclite) beim tragen eines Rucksacks mit ca 12 - 16 Kilo macht und wie sie das verkraftet. Ich weiß das bei diesen Anforderungen eigentlich eher eine 3lagige goreTex Pro Membran in Frage kommt, dennoch würde mich interessieren was ihr dazu sagt.
Vielen Dank schon mal im Vorraus
Berg Heil, euer Micha

Hallo Micha!

Bei dem genannten Rucksackgewicht empfehlen wir in der Tat eine 3-lagige Jacke (z.B. mit GoreTex Pro). Sonst kann es Dir passieren, dass sich nach längere Nutzung der Laminatstoff und dessen Schichten voneinander lösen.

Ich hoffe, dass Dir das bei der Suche weiterhilft.

Machs gut
