Arc’teryx name is taken from the Archaeopteryx lithographica, a creature which fossil remains show as a reptile with feathers, this creature is seen to be trying reach new horizons. So why not found a company which specialises in making clothing that help us reach new horizons.
An excellent idea and having a dinosaur skeleton as your logo doesn’t help but add to the kudos. In all seriousness Arc’teryx have been exporting some of the best mountaineering apparel from out of Canada for some time now and have an extensive range.
The Alpha LT is one of Arc’teryx flagship soft shell jackets. Made from a 3 layer Goretex pro shell material offering a light weight but durable outer, helmet friendly hood and harness compatible cut, the Alpha LT offer all weather protection where you need it. On you while your climbing. The Alpha
LT weighs in less than 370g and offers heavy weight features that you will need. Built for action the shoulder and back are cut to allow rigorous pulling, with articulated elbows to promote free movement, but there are no hand warmer pockets built for procrastination! There’s room so you
will be able to get a warmer layer underneath the jacket but not enough to feel baggy, just what you want from s soft shell.
You cannot go wrong with this jacket a quality brand name and made with realistic goals in mind.
