Alpha SL Anorak
by Arc'teryx Equipment


The Alpha SL Anorak ushers in a new era of weatherproof protection as Arc’teryx's lightest hardshell ever.
Utilizing resilient 20 denier nylon yarn with an engineered liquid crystal polymer ripstop grid, our Hadron fabric redefines the standard for superlight abrasion-resistant materials. Paired with Gore-tex, this revolutionary fabric marks a giant leap forward in alpine protection. In the super light space in hard shells, every gram matters. While the market has often sacrificed durability to achieve lightweight targets, the Alpha SL Anorak comes in at around 200g and still delivers on Arc’teryx's promise to create durable products with the best materials possible.

This project has been longlisted in the wearable design category of Dezeen Awards 2021.
