Moosejaw Staff Pick
"My Atcteryx Beta SL Jacket has been in use for two seasons now and I'm loving the way it works. I've been slowly dropping a few pounds for the last couple years, and this year it was time for a jacket upgrade. I purchased the Beta SL for it's the lightweight and watertight Gore-Tex Paclite fabric, which has been put to the test in quite a few Michigan rainstorms, and kept me dry every time. The only warning I can give is that it IS a little short of length, so your bottom half (bum on down) is definitely exposed. Pair it with some ultralight waterproof/breathable pants and you're laughing. You could also substitute the Beta AR Jacket, if you prefer a little more length and extra features at the expense of the extra weight."
