Arcteryx beta SL jacket is a fashionable and great design. It is thin and light enough for an unloaded hike. I am 5'5'' 55kg with size M is perfect. Performance of the waterproofing is also good. Love it so much.
"Love this lightweight waterproof jacket."
This jacket is perfect for those maybe it will rain, maybe it won't days. When I throw it in my pack, it takes up next to nothing for space, but if it starts to rain, the jacket provides full blown protection from rain and wind. The jacket has a very simple, clean line. The fabric is nice and soft and light. The hood provides good protection and is adjustable. The velcro sleeve adjustment is a nice touch. The Gore-tex packlite fabric does a good job handling rain and is nicely breatheable. There are no pit zips on this jacket. Overall, this is my go to jacket for unpredictable weather.
