For Fall 2011, Arc'teryx has chosen GORE-TEX Active Shell technology for their new fast and light jacket collection. The Alpha FL and Beta FL Jackets promise more effective sweat management for your high-intensity alpine pursuits.
GORE-TEX's new Active Shell directly integrates a thinner, more breathable membrane into a moisture wicking tricot liner. The lightweight nylon face fabric is DWR treated for complete waterproof and windproof protection along with added durability.
The Alpha FL Jacket is a minimalist alpine shell for those climbers that like to travel fast and light. A single chest pocket is sealed with a laminated WaterTight zipper. The jacket is created with an anatomical fit and pre-formed articulation, making it easier to swing your tools and reach those holds.
The Beta FL Jacket adds some additional features to enable you to go from alpine climbing straight to backcountry skiing. The shoulders are reinforced with GORE-TEX Pro Shell and the back and hips are lower for better snow coverage. The Storm Hood is lower profile and 360 degree reflective striping enhances your visibility in bad weather.
Look for the Arc'teryx Alpha FL and Beta FL Active Shell Jackets next Fall 2011.
