Arc'teryx Alpha SL Pants
The Arc'teryx Alpha SL Pants are an ultralight, packable, waterproof, and breathable GORE-TEX® alpine pant designed for emergency weather protection, with a minimal design catered for climbing and alpine pursuits.
The Arc'teryx Alpha SL Pants use materials and components designed for lightweight breathability, packability, and function. GORE-TEX® fabric with Paclite® technology is waterproof, breathable, and exceptionally light so as to be as packable as possible, and GORE-TEX® Pro reinforcements then provide extra durability where it is needed the most. The Zip It system allows the user to easily and quickly put on and remove the shell without the need for removing boots or having to face inconvenient and time-consuming snags from conventional trouser entry systems. Designed with mobility in mind, the Alpha SL Pants are for the climber who needs the smallest possible just-in-case protection that won't take up unnecessary space, will provide the right amount of protection, and won't let them down in stressful situations.

Zip It Faster Entry System
An example of the Arc’teryx commitment to performance focused design is the Alpha SL’s side zip system. Running the length of the pant, the zipper separates completely, making it easy to put on and take off the pant as weather shifts. By partially unzipping each side at the top, the system creates a drop seat, a feature that is truly appreciated when needed. Arc’teryx WaterTight™ zippers are used for a streamlined, snag free profile.
Arc'teryx Fit Guide - e3D
Ergonomic 3-Dimensional (e3D) patterning brings an added level of articulation to provide enhanced range-of-motion in Arc'teryx's Trim, Athletic, and Expedition fit categories. The use of e3D patterning allows for enhanced mobility for sport-specific activities in challenging environments.
Climbing and alpinism focused pieces: length and waistline compatible with a harness; highest possible durability-to-weight ratio; emphasis on lightweight materials.
GORE-TEX® PacLite® with GORE-TEX® Pro Reinforcements
The lightest, most packable fabric from GORE-TEX®, designed for those seeking emergency protection from inclement weather. 2-Layer GORE-TEX® Pro reinforcements provide extra durability on the instep for protection against crampon snags.
Durable Water Repellent
The DWR is an ultra-thin, water-resistant treatment whose satisfying water-beading has become the hallmark of a beautiful jacket. Although the DWR is not permanent and will wear off from exposure to dirt and general wear and tear, it can be very easily restored to its original functionality.
