Last week, Drake and Virgil Abloh showed up to a star-studded Nike presentation wearing matching camouflage jackets from Arc’teryx LEAF. The duo’s synergistic style understandably piqued a lot of people’s interest, which made the fact that the jacket is theoretically unattainable to most of us, a tough pill to swallow.

LEAF is an Arc’teryx B2B ancillary operation, and is an acronym for “Law Enforcement & Armed Forces.” So, when we say it is theoretically unattainable, we mean you need much more than $750 USD in your bank account... you need actual training to own this piece! That, or some serious connections.

So, if the thought of enduring the force’s physical training is too much, shop a list of the best alternative Arc’teryx products below.

Words almost fail me when looking to give pieces like this the “props” they deserve. The Arc'teryx Alpha SV Jacket features a durable hardshell construction, and is good for any number of alpine conditions. However, if the specifics are not important to you, it still looks great.
