The Arc'teryx Men's Beta LT Jacket is a no-nonsense GORE-TEX® Pro waterproof shell that is light enough to take with you on any pursuit. My buddy Jeff owns one of these and I'm always jealous when I see him wearing it on hiking trips. I asked him to give me a quick review but he muttered something about me doing my own job. Jeff is grumpy today. But the Beta LT doesn't care how grumpy or incosiderate you might be towards your friends, it will still keep you fully protected from rain and wind. Weighing in at 12.5 oz, it is extremely packable and will withstand being crammed into your pack, even in a grumpy Jeff-like manner. So pick up this shell and rest assured that it will always be there for you when times get tough, even if you've alienated everybody else in your life. Like Jeff.

"Versatile jacket that can be used in a variety of conditions"
This is a great jacket that can be used as a rain jacket in the summer over a t-shirt or a ski jacket over a fleece (or multiple layers) in the winter. I live in Atlanta and only ski 3-5 days/yr in Colorado. I wanted a year-round jacket that I also could layer and use as a ski jacket in the winter. It works perfectly for that. And it looks great. I'm 5'11" 160 lbs. and the medium is perfect.
"Fantastic against wind, struggles in rain"
6'1 150 pounds, fit's my skinny body perfectly. It's very athletic and I still have room for layers underneath. This jacket is outstanding in the wind. I can't even feel the wind when I wear there and sometimes it makes me wonder if my entire body was covered in this material.. How cool would that be. Pockets are nice, zippers are great. RAIN!! NO!! I live in Seattle so it rains 300 days out of the year. I brought this to a Sounders game the other night while my brother wore a SOUNDERS jacket that cost him 80 dollars. His jacket was repelling rain like nothing I've seen before while mine was soaked. I couldn't believe it because I also have a REI 75 dollar rain jacket that does MUCH better than this thing. I would return it but I feel bad wasting Moosejaw's time with it. I've already had to exchange one jacket in the past due to a malfunction..But to be honest, I'm not happy that it costs me $400.00 for a jacket that can't repel water.
I received this coat as a gift and have loved every minute of wearing it. I don't like bulky coats, but still want to be warm. This jacket is perfect, I wear is all winter long too and it does its job!
