The Arc'teryx Women's Alpha AR Jacket mixes advanced Gore-Tex performance and contemporary city style. Storm protection comes from the Gore-Tex fabric with C-Knit backer technology. Providing proven waterproof and breathable protection, the fabric is enhanced with a light, supple, silky backer that offers exceptional comfort without sacrificing weather protection. The mid-thigh length, shaped cuffs and brimmed hood combine to provide extended coverage. Compact, light and easily packed, the jacket is great for travel.
The jackets features are simple and intentional. The regular fit has a tailored look, but provides room for mid layers. The women-specific design includes articulation in the sleeves and gusseted underarms for exceptional freedom of movement. The streamlined coated zip may be unzipped from the bottom to improve freedom of movement while striding or riding a bike through town. A soft fabric panel protects your chin from chafing, and smart side pockets have concealed zips for a clean, finished look.

Arc'teryx challenges what exists, manufacturing new ideas is their culture. Passion and curiosity fuel a continual drive to explore, to push the boundaries of what is known, regardless of assumptions. Founded by Vancouver climbers in 1989, Arc’teryx has but one single goal; to create equipment that enables a person to be immersed in the moment of doing, regardless of external conditions.
Their Design Centre is a hive of likeminded individuals, a hands-on think tank of active designers, materials experts, pattern makers and product developers who know what they want, how it will be used and why it has to work. Arc’teryx's dedication to craftsmanship is expressed through their manufacturing processes, quality and integrity can only be achieved through effective partnership with their factories and suppliers.
Arc’teryx strive to deliver products that are as good as they can possibly be, so that they perform over time and beyond expectation, this is the heart of what Arc'teryx does and the roots of the company — to create what does not yet exist.
