Gear Review: ARC'TERYX Alpha SL Pullover Jacket

Pulling this jacket over many layers is a breeze with the elbow to hem pit zip.

Best Anorak

One of two pit zips on this smartly designed anorak runs all the way from elbow to hem, making it a cinch to get the pullover on and off–even over a puffy jacket.

The vents, plus breathable Gore-Tex Paclite, minimize overheating. $250; 10 oz. (w's medium); men's S-XXL, women's XS-XL; arcteryx.com
