I was looking for a lightweight, waterproof, and breathable shell that I could use all year round in all types of weather conditions and I think I found it with the Beta FL. It's light and breathable enough for activities like biking and hiking but can also withstand winter weather. The drop back hem is a nice feature, great for biking in the rain and protection from sitting on the wet stuff. I would've liked an inside pocket but I can understand the lack of one for weight saving. I like the face material, it isn't as crinkly as other Gore-tex hardshells. Typical quality construction as you would expect from Arc'teryx. You have to look at all the tiny seam tape on the inside to fully appreciate the craftsmanship. At 5'5" and 145lbs (38S suit) the small fits perfectly, but it's definitely on the trimmer side of things. Fits perfect over a t-shirt or a thin base layer. My Atom LT hoody also fits well under the FL, but anything more and it will be tight.
I had tried many different Gortex jackets and I was not impressed. The insides of those jackets were always wet with any high aerobic activity. I bought the Beta FL not expecting any big improvement. Wow, was I surprised. No more moisture on the inside of the jacket. The jacket is lightweight, has a nicer feel than other Gortex, and is much quieter (no crinkly sound). packs really small so it's easy to throw in my pack for a Cross Country Ski outing or a day hike. Even looks great around town.The small fits me perfectly - I'm 5' 11' & 145 lbs.Windproof, breathable, light, packs small, and a perfect fit. What more could I ask for.
