Taking the best of all performance factors and increasing its relevance to LEAF environments, the Arc'teryx Alpha Jacket GEN 2 elevates an icon to new heights. The Arc'teryx GEN 2 is the original high performance alpine jacket adapted for LEAF environments. Windproof, waterproof/breathable GORE-TEX® 3L fabric stands up to harsh, intense climates, prolonged exposure to weather and abrasion from gear and landscapes. Highly articulated patterning allows for maximum movement, minimal exposure, efficient transfer of moisture vapour to the outside and intelligent pocketing for in-field use.
WaterTight™ zippers and Dry Cuffs™ seal out rain and snow and hemcord secures rapidly with one hand; pit zippers allow for rapid heat regulation. Bomber length has slightly dropped hem to limit lower back exposure. Fewer seams and narrower seam tape, glued-in zippers and lighter fabric in the hood contribute to an overall lighter weight. he fit is streamlined around the neck; longer length gives more efficient coverage and the volume through the body is adjusted to allow complete freedom without excess bulk.
StowHood™ makes use of more compact MN40p-X GORE-TEX®3L fabric to fit neatly inside the collar and sit against the neck without bulk. Media ports allow for internal routing of communications cables. Internal, vertically routed hem drawcord minimizes interference with duty belt.
