Arc’teryx introduces the new Alpha Comp Jacket and Pant for 2014. Finely tuned, highly focused pieces with features, fabrics and a composite design combining GORE fabric technology with high end Fortius 1.0 softshell material. Alpha Comp Jacket and Pant: two ice and alpine climbing specialists.

In mountain environments, conditions can change quickly. Alpinists need to adjust rapidly to avoid exposure and critical loss of heat. The new Alpha Comp Jacket and Pant from Arc’teryx are unique solutions using composite construction to manage multiple conditions.

Combining waterproof, breathable GORE Fabric Technology with Arc’teryx Fortius 1.0 softshell, the Alpha Comps protect climbers from weather and contact with ice and snow, while also delivering freedom of movement and enhanced breathability.

The Alpha Comp Jacket has GORE Fabric Technology panels on shoulders, arms and hem where most exposure to snow and dripping water occurs.

Fortius 1.0 softshell fabric in core areas allows the climber to reach freely and move quickly without overheating. The marriage of softshell and hardshell means fewer layers; less overall weight to carry and a system that can be worn all day.

Alpha Comp Jacket’s helmet compatible Storm Hood adjusts to move with the head for improved visibility. Removable Hemlock inserts keep the jacket securely tucked under the harness, and the trim fit enhances thermal regulation. There are two harness compatible hand pockets and a chest pocket to keep essentials handy.

The Alpha Comp Pant has articulated patterning and a gusseted crotch to facilitate freedom of movement. The waist adjustment uses a low profile metal hook to reduce potential for snagging, and the unique three position leg gusset can be adjusted for a low profile, crampon compatible fit. An easily accessible thigh pocket sits below the harness.
