The Arcteryx Men's Beta LT Hybrid Jacket is a lightweight rain jacket for all-around activities, such as hiking and climbing. The Beta LT Hybrid combines Gore-Tex PacLite (mainbody) and Gore-Tex 3L (high-wear areas) for a super packable, lightweight package. The high-wear areas are the shoulders and underarms, where backpack straps lay. The Gore-Tex fabrics are waterproof and breathable to keep you comfortable all day long in rain, sleet, or snow. A durable water repellent and taped seams increase waterproofness throughout the jacket. The drop-hood stays out of the way when not in use and is also helmet compatible with adjustments to pull it close. Open up the pit zips to release excess heat while the Beta LT Hybrid takes care of the weather and you take on the trail.

I needed a shell that I could layer beneath for my wife and I's many hiking and backpacking adventures. I needed something waterproof, breathable, with a hood and that didn't break the bank. To me spending more than $150 on a simple shell was more than I cared to spend. My wife for Christmas decided it was time to just cave in and buy me a shell. She told me that after reading the reviews of the Shell that was around $200 that I was finally seriously entertaining, that she ended up deciding it was best to spend more money to buy something that would last. This jacket has been amazing. No leaks. Breaks the wind. Is incredibly breathable with the armpit vents. The pockets while they seem high to the average person, are PERFECT for anyone wearing a hiking pack. As they ride up high enough to reach them while your pack is on if needed. The hood fits great with adjustment. All I have to say is don't blink at the Arc'Teryx price tags. Just say yes.
Ordered two, one for me and one for the hubby. We go out when everyone else is told to stay in- so this is needed to be seen and you can see us for miles in the vibrant Orange.Its a solid shell ONLY , no insulation but very well seam sealed and keeps everything dry. Wish it had a two way front zip.. Pockets are awkward in front, you will be trying to place things at your hip where no pockets live. Helmet sized hood with nice toggle adjuster, and adjustable velcro wrists to keep every drop out. Bought one size up for adding winter puffers. I reach for this everytime the weather is better suited for ducks...
"This keeps you bone dry in the worst of it"
Bought one for myself and one for my bestie. Bought it large to add layers for the cold fall/winter. It has no warmth but is a solid wind break and waterproof shell. Seam sealed everywhere. The pockets are a bit awkward in placement in the front as I would like them to be at hip level not in the middle of my chest. Great large hood for my helmet, though the brim could have more bend to it. The color is vibrant which is what we need to be seen in our profession . The large hits high thigh on me at a 5'5" female, its just below waist on my 6' man, a tad shorter than you would expect by the picts. The velcro cuffs are fully adjustable. Nice style/cut for around the town or on the mountains. I would recommend especially in awful weather I grab this every time.
"Consistent Arc'Teryx excellence, super light/packable outer layer"
Unlike all these hardcore mountaineers, climbers and expedition hikers, I am more of a layman when it comes to using technical gear at the Arc'teryx level. However, for trips of a lifetime, I don't trust just any brand. As an owner of 3 other Arc'teryx jackets, I knew what I was looking for: waterproof, breathable, lightweight, packable, reliable and durable. This is a tall order for any company and Arc'teryx nailed it. This jacket and my Beta Lt pants pack so small I can put them in my carry on. Why is packability important for a layperson like me who doesn't aspire to do any of the go-pro-esque sports? Well ask United Airlines, who misplaced my luggage in Anchorage a few years ago. My rain gear didn't arrive with me to the remote destination on Kodiak Island.The sleeves are a little long, the cut is for the active person and the cuffs are a tad narrow to accommodate a Suunto watch. Material seems flimsy, but Arc'teryx's warranty and customer care is without equal.
I bought this jacket in the early spring. Primarily, I use it for hikes, riding my bike, and just to hoof it around town. To this point, Arcteryx has definitely delivered! The cut fits perfect to my size and the hood adjustments add to a great fit. This jacket is specifically made to be lite and water resistance, which I have found both to be spot on. The pit zips have also been a great feature when things get a little wet and steamy out. On a more materialistic side, I have also received compliments on the mango color. All around, great light weight jacket made for many different times of the year.
This jacket is exactly what you need if you require a water/wind proof shell to protect you from the elements. It'll fit over whatever you have on (given you aren't wearing a puffy down jacket) but don't expect it to keep you warm by itself (unless a breeze comes in early May). That being said, its extremely thin (like bed sheet thin) so packing it won't be a problem and I don't see any issues wearing it in warm weather while its raining. I'd rather be a tad warm than soaked. Everything cinches down to keep wind/water out and it fits perfect - I'm 6'00 160lbs and I wear a medium. I think this specific model is discontinued because its not on the Arc'teryx website and I couldn't find much on it via the internet. I did however see that it was very well received at last years outdoor retailer show by one of their experts. Overall, its highly recommended.
