Military and law enforcement officials always hoard the next level gear and making things like bulletproof vests illegal for civilians to wear. Why do they get to have all the fun? Thankfully, Arc’teryx and its LEAF program have been providing gear for us regular folks that even the Pentagon would be jealous of.
Its latest is an update on a classic. The Alpha Jacket got retooled and now brings 10 years of development into a brand new jacket dubbed the Alpha Jacket Generation 2. It’s a lighter jacket but still maintains, waterproof, windproof, and breathable shell qualities. Essentially, this is your personal body armor to protect you from all kinds of shitty weather. It’s completely legal and you don’t even need any sort of license to wear this thing around. Watch the clip above and visit the Arc’teryx website to purchase.
