Arc'teryx Alpha SV

Best for Hardcore Alpine Outings
A clean design, a durable face fabric, and a GORE-TEX Pro Shell membrane make the SV a go-to workhorse for people who spend weeks in the mountains each year. Arc'teryx calls the Alpha SV its "most durable waterproof shell," and the design, which lacks extras in favor of a sleek fit, is an archetype of what a mountain-oriented hardshell should be. A strong face fabric, water-tight zippers, laminated pockets, and reinforced stitching make it rugged and tough.
