patagonialukeI have friends that tour and ski resort in the Alpha SV. It's definitely a shorter fit but still has decent coverage, especially if you match it with a hybrid or softshell bib you'd have an awesome set up. Either way its a super bomber jacket and Arc'teryx has one of the best warranties in the industry so if you don't like it odds are you could trade it in for the Rush or something like that.
I won't be able to trade it in store, I had a Rush, sold it 2 weeks ago, It was to big, I bought a large,newschooler made me do it
For the pant, I have The north fave freethinker and Orage Jp Auclair soft-shell gore-tex pants. So i'll wear my Orage pant whit the Alpha.
I might be able to trade it to someone tho, on here, Someone want a Black Medium Alpha Sv for a Rush ? haha
Like, I don't have any gore tex pro,
But My plan is having for the next season,
Alpha SV (pro)
Free thinker (pro, but for skiing in the resort)
Oroshi (active, summer and late winter touring)
Freethinker bibs (pro)
Jp Auclair (softshell)
