Beta SL Jacket

rated 2 of 5 stars IT IS NOT A RAIN JACKET, despite what the description implies. I like the design, the weight, the fit—all the things people mention. But this is a just a very expensive windbreaker that fails even a modest rain test. It soaks through in the back and sleeves. The worst part is that this was a replacement for the equivalent Alpha model, now discontinued, which had the same failure profile—completely leaky sleeves—not condensation, either. Bona fide cold rain water. So, two strikes for Arc'teryx,… Full review

Alpha FL Jacket

rated 5 of 5 stars Bomber, very lightweight jacket that you can depend on. I have both the Alpha SV and Alpha FL shells and have used them in various activities for several years. Both are amazingly well made, keep you warm and dry, and give you the confidence that you'll be able to depend on them in the backcountry for many seasons. Pardon my review in terms of talking about both of these models, but to me they are like a set that I choose for different needs. I am of average height (5'10") and have a muscular build… Full review

Alpha SV Jacket

rated 5 of 5 stars The best heavy shell money can buy!!! I have both the Alpha SV and Alpha FL shells and have used them in various activities for several years. Both are amazingly well made, keep you warm and dry, and give you the confidence that you'll be able to depend on them in the backcountry for many seasons. Pardon my review in terms of talking about both of these models, but to me... they are like a set that I choose for different needs. I am of average height (5'10") and have a muscular build (200#). Both… Full review

Alpha FL Glove

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Beautifully-made, well-designed gloves that should live up to the Arc'teryx Alpha FL name. First off, I am an Arc'teryx fan boy. I rarely leave the house without either my Alpha FL or Alpha SV jackets. I've owned and worn them for years and they still look brand new. They are the very definition of bomber gear and I feel like I can put 100% faith in them to deliver in times of need. I don't regret a single penny that I spent on them and would absolutely buy them again if anything happened to either… Full review

Theta AR Jacket

rated 1.5 of 5 stars Bought this jacket at Cotswold for £380 GBP. In two months of ownership I took it in torrential rain for two hours. It leaked at the shoulders. Sent back to Arc'teryx and shipped back saying "no manufacturing defect". I will be honest in saying that I don't wish to waste more time writing a thorough review. I have lost time and money and I'm very disappointed that Arc'teryx took so long to return my jacket. They didn't even telephone to clarify the problem. In essence I was hoping to purchase an… Full review
