The Arc'Teryx Women's Beta AR Jacket is a tough, durable waterproof jacket for an endless array of outdoor activities. The jacket is ready to take on weather thanks to N40p-X 3L GORE-TEX® Pro with N80p-X reinforcements in the high wearing areas. The all-season jacket has a regular fit, so you can go from wearing t-shirts, to base layers, and even a cozy fleece underneath depending on the temperature. When it's dry enough to skip the hood, but your neck still requires blockage from the wind, the DropHood™ pushes back with ease and stays out of the way while the collar stands tall to shield the little hairs at the back of your neck. Hand pockets and an internal pocket, all with zippers, ensure the smaller items have quick access at all times.
Products on Sale are Discontinued Styles or Colors.

FIT TYPE INFO and DETAILS:
Next to Skin Fit - These snugly-fitting garments are made with stretch fabrics to fit next to the skin to enhance moisture management and thermal efficiency. Garments in this fit category when constructed using Arc'teryx's heavier-weight AR and SV fabrics also perform very well as mid layer pieces, and users should consider selecting a larger size to accommodate a base layer underneath if the intention is to use this layering system as a mid layer option.
Trim Fit - Trim-fitted garments share the motion-friendly traits with Arc'teryx "Athletic" fit garments, but are patterned with lower volume for reduced bulk. These close-fitting pieces layer well under other garments.
Athletic Fit - This is the "Arc'teryx Standard" fit. These complete patterns utilize anatomical shaping and gussets to enhance motion by minimizing excess bulk. Easy layering under or over each item extends seasonal versatility and comfort.
Relaxed Fit - Relaxed fit garments rely on higher volume patterns and a reduced amount of articulation to offer roomy mobility.
Expedition Fit - Cut roomier than the Arc'teryx Athletic fit and suitable for winter/extreme conditions, Expedition (XPD) fit garments are cut larger to accommodate multiple layers without binding or restricting movement.
• You can find the fit type and additional fit info for Arc'teryx styles in the product description FEATURES and SPECIFICATIONS.

UnbeatableThis jacket was a BIG ‘splurge’ but after four weeks backpacking high and low in Japan I am still smiling ☺
I’m 162cm, small frame but top heavy. I chose a Medium. It's roomy without being too big or too long in the arms or body. I probably could have got away with the Small but I can comfortably layer a mid weight down or fleece beneath the Medium without feeling squished. It packs down small and light and it’s NOT noisy to wear.
Pit zips are my ‘must haves’ and the main reason for choosing the Beta AR over lighter Arcteryx models. The hood adjusts at three different points for a great fit and max visibility (with or without a helmet) and once adjusted it all stays put.
As to keeping me dry, warm, and comfortable and feeling pretty smart too (I chose the Silver Lining to match my hair ;-) … it’s unbeatable!

lightweight jacket with durable featuresI purchase this jacket for my gf for winter summit in Japan . During local training day in HK where humidity is around 99% with persistent raining, this jacket still feels dry inside without damp feelings. This jacket feels tough without holes after walking through road with lots of tree branches. Reinforement in shoulder area and front arm allows prolong use with a back pack. Both side pockets are easy to reach without restriction even wearing a backpack. Good hoody with enough coverage of protection from rain. However , I would like to have both sides zippers for the main zip , which allows more fine adjustment for ventilation. In addition, I suggest the low waist area should be reinfored like the shoulder area as the backpack sits around the waist. For the velcro closure in both hands , I would recommend using the construction similar to the mountain equipment or marmot as I have experience delamination on velcro closure on rab jacket which using similar construction like the arcteryx.
For the sizing problem, 160cm with ~120 lbs wearing a size small . Would recommend size up one size if a thick down jacket is needed for layering.
Will see how it performs in cold weather with snow after winter summit in Japan.
