Product Description
Alpha SV Jacket - Men's by Arc'teryx
Improving upon the iconic protection of the Alpha SV Jacket, Arc'teryx focused on the seemingly contradictory design concepts of lightweight construction and robust strength, seeing as it's the favorite choice of 100-day skiers, professional mountain guides, and alpinists facing the worst conditions on the planet. The newest iteration of the Arc'teryx Men's Alpha SV Jacket leverages a 100-denier nylon face (what Arc'teryx calls N100p-X) over the previous 80-denier fabric for twice the abrasion-resistance and 50% more strength against tears. It retains the legendary waterproofing and breathability of a Gore-Tex Pro 3-layer membrane for those skiing and pushing peaks in exposed terrain and raging snowstorms. This increase in strength comes with a slight weight penalty (approximately 2% increase) in the face fabric. Offsetting this minute increase, Arc'teryx decreases the jacket's overall weight with narrower 8mm Gore seam tape, eliminating zipper garages with the use of WaterTight zippers and RS sliders, as well as Cohaesive hem adjusters that replace the previous version's Harness HemLock insert. This obsessive focus on weight savings makes the Alpha SV a top contender for light-and-fast alpine missions where nasty weather is expected. Besides saving precious weight, the Cohaesive hem adjuster offers a snug fit around the hip that prevents the jacket from riding up when you're wearing a climbing harness. WaterTight underarm zips provide active breathability while you're skinning up your favorite backcountry stash or embarking on a mixed route of demanding rock and ice. The StormHood accommodates skiing and climbing helmets while sealing out pouring rain and wind-driven snow. These features make the Alpha SV a veritable fortress against against the world's most demanding alpine environments, all without sacrificing functionality or storage like many lightweight jackets on the market.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
