Product: Arc’teryx Alpha SL Jacket

Price: $370.00CAD

Function/Purpose: Superlight, packable GORE-TEX alpine climbing jacket

Quality: High quality GORE-TEX jacket with sealed zippers

Likes: This jacket has a great fit that is very flattering. Single chest pocket makes it really easy to access when you have a backpack on. 

Dislikes: Given how lightweight the materials used for this compact jacket, I found it doesn't hold up as well compared to other Arcteryx hardshells for waterproof performance. This is a dislike for me because given Gore-Tex is used and for the price I would have hoped it would have stood up against rain a little better.
