The lucky winner is Michelle Cheah and the answer is N80p-X GORE-TEX® Face fabric.
N80p-X GORE-TEX® Face fabric was developed over a five year period and is very abrasion resistant. The breathability in wet conditions is better using the DWR (durable water repellent) materials. Woven from an 80 denier false twist texture, high tenacity nylon yarn, the fabric is durably waterproof and breathable, while at the same time being supple, quiet and 10 percent lighter than the former version of the fabric.
Made in Canada, the Alpha SV Jacket is Arc'teryx's top of the range hard shell jacket. Answer the question below to win one. You've got until 14th October to get your answer in.
"Within the first few seconds of trying this jacket on, you instantly realise the difference between this and just about any other shell on earth."
