User Review: Arc'teryx Men's Alpha SV Jacket
Price Paid: $425
I read all the great reviews on this jacket, but guess what? Their "bombproof" jacket can leak water right through the front zipper.
I was sitting down in a rainstorm with high winds (40mph plus) for no longer than 15 minutes. I thought I felt my chest and stomach getting wet, but was sure it was just my imagination. When I got out of the rain and unzipped my jacket, my shirt was soaked along the zipper.
You think I'm going to trust this jacket in the White Mountains in January? No way. I'm disgusted.
