User Review: Arc'teryx Women's Alpha LT Jacket
Fantastic lightweight waterproof jacket.
I have the women's version which I am stoked with. Unlike many other wet weather jackets this one is cut really well for women meaning you get a great fit and avoid bulk but still have full range of movement.
The breathability is excellent so I don't have the problem of sweating each time I put it on which I have had with other waterproof jackets.
I haven't tested it in constant torrential rain yet, but so far it has stood up in rainstorms with no problems.
The big plus about this jacket is the lightweight packability. This jacket packs down so small compared to other fully waterproof jackets.
The only thing I don't like about it are the pockets. I find the pockets on the front to be a bit inconvenient and uncomfortable, but that's just my opinion, some people may love them.
Overall I have no regrets, definitely pricey, but if you are prepared to pay it, (or can find it a bit cheaper somewhere) it is well worth it.
