The Arc'Teryx Women's Alpha SV Bib Pant is a Snow bib for the severe weather of Climbing and alpine activities. The e3D patterning brings together N80p-X Gore-TEX; Pro 3L and N155p-X Gore-TEX; Pro 3L fabrics in a movement-friendly way to keep you dry and comfortable during the hard exertion to make it up the mountain. The fabric sheds water so rain, Snow and sleet don't stand a chance at getting you soaked, even wind steers clear. The High bib protects more than just your legs, preventing Snow and drafts from getting at your torso. The two vertical chest zippers allow you to store personal Items close, not only keeping them warmer against your body and under your layers of jackets, but completely accessible while wearing your harness. Throughout the bibs you'll find WaterTight zippers, 3/4 length side zips that aid in easy on/off as well as venting and a through-the-crotch zip for those you-know-what moments. Ah, mountain life. Down at the lower leg, you'll find a removable leg wrap at the interior, which pulls the pant leg fabric closer to you, helping prevent snags on your crampons.

The Women's Arc'teryx Alpha SV Bib Pant sets the standard for serious expeditions. These chest-height bib take advantage of ultralight Gore-Tex XCR material to keep you totally dry no matter how wet it gets. Three-quarter length side zips stop just short of your waist, so they won't interfere with a harness or hipbelt, and a through-the-crotch WaterTight zip is a godsend when nature calls. Keprotec instep patches that won't get eaten by ski edges or crampons. *Available for US shipment only.
