User Image

This jacket is awesome, and certainly on a par with the best jackets out there on the market at present. The materials are high quality, the zips have taped seams throughout. The hood is excellent and has plenty of space for a helmet. One thing I do find on this jacket is it comes a bit short, worth trying this on before buying don't buy it blindly over the net!

By issue with this jacket is this. As Arcteryx's top of the line hardshell its coming in with an asking price of £400. Millet's K expert comes in at £390 RRP, Mountain Equipments Kongur is £280 and the MRT version is £320, when they are just as good if not better. I would argue that non of the jackets listed above are any better than each other, so the prices should be equal to reflect that. I believe (certainly with Arcteryx) there is an element of "paying for the name"

Overall, brilliant jacket, well built and designed, if a little short. But look around at other jackets of similar spec as the cost involved with the Alpha LT is £80 more than some jackets of similar spec.
