Arc'teryx's most durable GORE-TEX PRO shell is designed for severe (SV) alpine conditions. Alpha Series: Climbing and alpine focused systems. | SV: Severe Weather.

The iconic Alpha SV is a proven performer in severe alpine conditions. Obsession keeps us pushing forward, and working closely with Gore, we have developed the strongest Alpha SV Ever.

Utilizing extremely durable yet breathable GORE-TEX PRO with Most Rugged Technology, we have paired our most durable face fabric for incredibly long-lasting storm protection. The Micro Grid Backer enhances resistance to abrasion and contamination. The backer is dope dyed, a process using substantially less resources than traditional dye processes. Featured for confidence in extreme conditions, the Alpha SV includes an embedded RECCO® reflector for improved searchability in emergency situations, our helmet compatible StormHood™, pit zips, and articulated construction that frees you to move across mountain terrain.

Updated with a revised fit.
