User Review: Arc'teryx Men's Alpha LT Jacket
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: 385$
Phenomenal hood, great fit, very durable.
- Amazing hood
- Great fit
- Makes other brands feel "cheap"
I picked up the Alpha LT through Arc'teryx's LEAF program, so the colour is a bit different then the normal Arc offerings, but it's the same great jacket.
I've been using it the last couple months for everyday wear, and we've had some nasty conditions to test it out in, lots of rain, sleet, and snow and it beads like a champ. As others have said the hood will adjust to anything you need it to do, and the jacket itself fits really well.
Still going strong, used all summer doing geologic field work in the Yukon, lot of cold rainy days, and every day in the woods was bushwacking. Jacket is still going strong. The only reason I even got wet was because I couldn't get the jacket on fast enough.
Recently I've been looking at getting a softshell, and even with all the brands out there I'm still going to go for Arc' because their hood is just so damn good!
