Arc'teryx Alpha SV Suit (2008)
For the highest level of alpine performance the Alpha SV Suit from ARCTERYX offers the benefits of a tough waterproof/breathable hardshell upper combined with a stretchy softshell bottom. Since they are attached, you never run into the problem of exposing underlayers to the elements when you're fully extended.
Top is constructed of an outer layer laminated to a GORE-TEX membrane and is seam taped so it is totally waterproof and highly breathable
Bottom is made with Schoeller fabric that stretches for easy movement and is also incredibly weather resistant
Tapered lower legs, that fit over boots, have a bombproof Keprotec instep patch to resist the bite of crampon teeth
WaterTight full length legs zips, pit zips and main zipper which extends from the chin through the crotch to the small of the back making this piece easy on and easy off
Plenty of storage in the two chest and one sleeve pockets, all with laminated zips; in addition there are two internal chest pockets
Stowable hood for added protection
Removable knee pads built in to protect against rock and ice
Pull cords are one handed and easy to manipulate
