Arc’teryx Alpha SV Glove
Will Ross, February 15, 2017
Released alongside the release of 2010/11 winter season, a video documenting the design and engineering behind Arc’teryx’s Alpha SV Glove outlines the detailed process and philosophy behind their leading mitt.
Slip on the Alpha SV and the complexity of its production disappears. Arc’teryx ability to simplify the essential details of the product and ensure its durability are the enduring takeaways.
The features reach out from the claw of the glove, with its dexterous, full leather palm and Gore-Tex fist to buffer the elements. A fleece liner is separate from the shell, an emblem of minimalism when you think about how many brands normally wed these two very different layers together.
A simple clincher is token on the wrist, but an elasticated closure further up the arm does a surer job of closing the unit tight.
The Alpha SV glove has been discontinued. Look out for the Fission SV which is its closest replacement.
