Product Description Item No.   10281158

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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Streamlined and versatile This jacket is the most versatile jacket I have come across. It is completely waterproof, can be used as a shell on summer hikes in the rain, fall events in wind and rain, cross country skiing during the winter, or for a casual night out on the town. The fit is great; I am a 5'1 female and have found most of Arc'teryx's products to have a tall fit, but this one fits right below the hips (right on the hips for normal-sized people). Also, it is roomy enough to throw a few layers on underneath without looking bulky, and without looking too loose without any layers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent versatility. I had this product for about 10 years then bought a new one just for a change of colour (old one works fine). I use mine as a rain jacket in the spring and fall, and as a running jacket in the winter. It does a great job blocking out the extremely cold wind here in Winnipeg and keeps me warm enough if I layer up underneath it. I've run in -20 degree Celsius weather with it, and it's been great. Also taken it skiing and winter camping too. It does fit a little bit on the bigger side. I'm 5'3" 125 lbs and bought a size XS, I usually wear a small. The extra room is great if you want to layer up under this piece though. It's very light and packs well on my travels too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impeccably made all around jacket This is the best shell I've ever worn. It's incredibly light and the seams and zippers are things of beauty. The design is streamlined - nothing frivolous, everything has a purpose. I'm 5'5" and weigh 125lbs. I got the small in order to have room to wear layers. The fit is feminine and there is room for several layers underneath if needed. I've worn this jacket cross country skiing in below zero temperatures and been comfortable with a base and mid layer under the jacket. Nothing binds and the range of motion is excellent. The jacket has become a casual favorite as well - it's the first light weight one I grab for just about every occasion. A truly well made jacket that should last for years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional jacket I bought my first beta AR more than 7 years ago and it's been a fabulous and versatile jacket (biking/hiking/around town use#. Recently, the inside tape started to peel off the seams and the back hem came down so I sent it in for repairs. The jacket was still 100% waterproof even with these deficits, and the goretex was still in perfect condition after seven years. To my surprise, Arc'teryx replaced the jacket under warranty instead of repairing it. Great customer service and this company backs up its products #which are exceptional to begin with).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most versatile jacket I've come across This is by far the most effecient winter jacket I have owned! This jacket is very light, considering it's a winter shell, and it's entirely waterproof and breathable. As a ski instructor, I worked moer days in the rain this season than snow and this was the jacket I wished this jacket was our uniform! The hood is versatile and can be worn with a helmet, or adjusted to fit just over your head. The pit zips were my favorite feature this winter with such mild to unnaturally hot winter conditions. Also, the wrists are easily adjustable when wearing gloves, which is convenient. Although it looks narrow in the picture, the jacket fits to size. I have wide hips and I never felt like the jacket was not a proper fit for me. In fact, it was less constricting on my hips than other jackets I've previously owned. This is, hands down, the best winter jacket I've come across. Whether it's winter backpacking or shredding down major ski terrain, this is the jacket I will always take with me!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from minimalist and bomb proof This jacket was my entry into the world of Arcteryx. I love its minimalistic design, sleak enough to wear it downtown when the sky is crying over New England. Ideal for climbing and mountaineering, harness fits well underneath. Well designed storm hood, keeps you perfectly protected. So far, no problems at all with waterproofness. Had the jacket for a year and wore it all year round. Unfortuntely and to my surprise, the inner lining started to rip after only three month. I expected this jacket to hold for longer. Nonetheless, I sent the jacket to Arc'teryx and received it back three weeks later - the repairs are invisible. Great customer service. The lifetime guarantee was definitely an argument for me to buy the jacket in the first instance. And yes, ahem, the jacket might cause envy among your outdoor friends...or even from your totally not-outdoorsy mom.... As the picture shows, the Beta AR protects you from the elements..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for canoeing! I've owned this jacket for several months now and am very pleased. Despite my life long background in the outdoors (predominantly flat water paddling in Ontario#, I have never owned a waterproof/breathable jacket. It always seemed a bit of an oxymoron, but I finally bit the bullet and acquired one. I'm 5'1", 150lbs. A bit stocky, carrying a lot of my weight in the hips and quads, which became a prominent issue when selecting a 3L, minimalist Arc'teryx jacket. In order to get a comfortable fit around the hips, in most models I had to size up to a Large, which I was swimming in up top. I narrowed it down to the Theta AR and Beta AR, but ultimately went for the Beta AR because it fit slightly better. I did have concerns about the shorter length, but it was perfect for paddling in. Was a fantastic jacket soloing the west side of the Bowron in the first week of September this year. Plenty of rain, but kept me dry and not sweaty! Only issue I had was that the lighter I kept in my pocket the whole 5 days #under my life jacket and all# wore a hole through the pocket lining, which was a bit of a bummer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Jacket I use this jacket for on-resort and backcountry skiing. It is surprisingly warm, traps in heat, and highly breathable. Have skied in the rain, and been completely dry. It is the perfect length, and does not ride up. Best helmet-compatible hood I have had, total coverage and wind protection. Awesome jacket, great investment.
