The best ski deals tend to surface at the end of the season, as retailers look to move out the current inventory to make room for next year’s crop. But every once in a while, a sweet deal surfaces on the eve of a new season, a golden opportunity for those with the alacrity to pounce. Such is the case with Arc’teryx’s top-of-the-line Alpha SV jacket, which REI is currently moving at a 25 percent discount.
Weighing in at just over a pound, this jacket is the choice of many a powder hound, mountain guide and expert alpinist for several reasons. First of all, it boasts the unmatched waterproofing and breathability of a Gore-Tex Pro 3-layer membrane, ideal for off-piste adventures. The Alpha SV also features tough N100p-X face fabric, WaterTight pit zips, an adjustable storm hood and an array of pockets to ensure your touring gear is always within easy reach.
The only catch? The huge discount only applies to a few colorways: black, light blue and orange. But if that causes you a moment’s pause, just think how many après-ski beers you can buy with that extra $196.
