Superlight, exceptionally packable GORE-TEX® with Paclite® product technology jacket created for climbers and alpinists needing emergency waterproof/breathable protection in sudden storms. Alpha Series: Climbing and alpine focused systems | SL: Super light.
Carefully designed to be as light and packable as possible without sacrificing key elements required by alpinists and climbers, the Alpha SL delivers highly effective waterproof/breathable protection for sudden storms. By putting intense focus on design, fabric and feature selection, Arc’teryx designers held the weight at 305g (10.8 oz), and allowed the jacket to easily pack into its own hood or included stuff sack.

Lightweight, very packable, this jacket hides well in the bag. But its truly minimal. Thus, for those of us who like using pockets - for food, gloves, maps, or whatever - take note: there's only one Napoleon (though very roomy). And for those who like pit-zips (remember: zippers = weight), this is not your jacket, either. So, there's a reason for the feather-weight, and a price as well. The rest is Arcteryx, including smart features to leave it below the harness (or backpack). Nicely done.
