Product Description Item No.   10220010

If, for some reason, society collapses and we enter a state of pure chaos, I will instantly run into our warehouse and grab an Arc'teryx Men's Beta AR Jacket (and then a couple of our heftiest ice axes). I would want the no-nonsense protection with bombproof durability. The GORE-TEX Pro will block wind, rain, snow and whatever else falls from the sky in our broken world. It is light and packable with an athletic fit that will accommodate layers for the coldest winters (of our discontent). The hand pockets (pack compatible) and pit-zips allow for ample ventilation so I could stay on the move even with drastically changing temperatures and conditions. This situation is purely hypothetical and will probably/hopefully never happen, but if the Beta AR is up for that challenge, it can certainly handle the challenges of our current world.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for the Scottish hills! I originally had a Beta AR jacket in XL and to be honest it was huge. I lost weight and downsized to a large which is much better. They are made slightly big. I'm 5'11" and 182 lbs and the lareg is perfect for me. I venture out into the Scottish hills in this every weekend. You can get 4 seasons in one day at any time of the year here so you need the gear to compliment this. I pair the Beta AR with the Alpha SL pant when the precip up's a notch. The jacket I have is a Canadian made one but it doesn't matter where they are made as they are all constructed with amzing skill and precision. Yea, the price is high but you only pay for what you get.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from simply the best... I have owned the Beta AR for a little over a year and it is the best fitting, best performing rain shell I have ever had. I am 6'4", 200lbs. and the large fits me perfectly. I have used it in a variety of very wet, very windy conditions and it has performed flawlessly. I have owned the "best" rain shells from Mountain Hardwear, TNF, and others. These jackets don't fit me as well and while they perform similarly to the Beta AR initially, they start having performance issues after six months or so. I am confident the Beta AR will perform exceptionally well for years. This jacket is expensive, but if you consider its quality and the performance guarantee, it is more reasonable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Truly is an 'All-round' jacket I bought my first Beta AR ~5 years ago. Since then the jacket has been dragged across the mountains of BC hunting sheep, exposed to the African sun hunting kudu, and scrapped through the Northern QC forests for Moose. It has survived it all and insured I did as well. It has been worn all year round to protect from sun, rain, snow, and wind. I can't recommended this jacket enough- It can take some serious abuse and not only keep going, but be comfortable along the way. I've now just bought my second as I wouldn't consider another. The Beta AR has become a second skin. My only complaint about the jacket: My first one was made in Canada. My newest is made in China. I wish Arc'Teryx would hire and pay Canadians to make such great gear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Standard for Over Ten Years It's been quite a while since I bought my first Arc'Teryx jacket, the Theta AR, and with good reason: I never needed to buy another! I wore it beneath pack straps, scraped it across the craggy surfaces of river bluffs and once during a sudden rainstorm used it as an impromptu bag for my camera equipment. Recently, though, I updated by purchasing a new Beta AR and I'm really liking the versatility of its shorter length. I'm 5' 8", 190lbs and the large size provides the right amount of room for layering when it's cold and hits comfortably right around my waist. Here's to another decade of wear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from If you need dependable shelter, this is definitely worth the price Thanks to excellent materials, construction and fit, my Beta AR jacket has been virtually impenetrable to rain and snow. I waited several years for an excuse to invest in an Arc'Teryx jacket. That excuse came when I booked 4 weeks of mountaineering in the Peruvian Andes (during the rainy season). I needed something that was light and packable, but that could also withstand a wide range of mountain conditions. This jacket did the trick in a variety of temperatures and precipitation. Really amazing performance. My only issue is that it fits a bit on the short side. My base and midlayers often hang just a centimeter or two below the waistline. Not a big deal, but prospective buyers should bear this in mind given that Arc'Teryx offers jackets with longer cuts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Hardshell I have encountered Over the years I have not been willing to spend the money on a good hardshell, instead I would buy a decently priced hardshell and they would start to leak in a couple of years or they were too heavy for the backpacking trip. This jacket is not like that of course it is gortex so it is loud to hike in and it is a shell so you need layering underneath. (I layer a fleece and an arc'teryx atom underneath and have yet to be cold in Michigan) This jacket is cut shorter than most hardshells that I have encountered (I I don't see this as a problem but it is up to you) Overall this is the best Hardshell I have found.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from the best! i adore this jacket. the fit is perfect. It's light and built right.... pit zips and waterproof. i am 6.1 215 pounds and i have a large. the cut seems to be a bit slimmer than other brands but i can still layer a little. I feel the fit is perfect for me. length is perfect. If you like a longer jacket, they have other models that can accommodate. This jackets been hit by trees and bounced off rocks and it's still in one piece. Still waterproof. Enjoy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very versatile and excellent customer service I bought this jacket in 2005. I travel all around the world regularly and I always take it with me. It has worked impecably in rain forests, desserts, rock climbing, running under the rain and even snowboarding. After eight years of average usage the bottom gaiter became unglued and some of the draw strings where damanged. I sent an email to Arcteryx and the fixed it for me free of charge!! Thank you Arcteryx, definitely worth the price!

Can you tell me the main differences btw the Alpha SV, Theta AR and the Beta AR jackets? Understand Alpha SV won awards. Interested if there is big differences in the materials.  Own a Atom LT Hoody and it is AWESOME! Hands down a great quality product.

Asked by: Chris89
Hey Chris, Thanks for reaching out to us. The main difference between the jackets are indicated by Arcteryx's naming scheme. The Alpha series focuses on climbing and alpinism gear that are harness and helmet compatible, have maximum articulation for overhead motions, and the highest possible durability-to-weight ratio.Theta garments are made for all around use with a longer length, chest and interior pockets, and room for layers. Beta jackets are also made for all around use, have a moderate length, hand and interior pockets, and room for layers. All jackets have a drop hem and are helmet compatible. The SV stands for Severe Weather and is made from the most durable materials that offer the most weather protection, while AR stands for All Around and provides high performance and weather protection for multiple activities. I hope this helps!

Hi, Please let me know from what country this jacket, Arcteryx Men's Beta AR Jacket, was manufactured.   Thank you

Asked by: Dien
Mine is made in Canada, but it's a few years old. It might vary. I'd give MJ a call and see if they can check a current one.

How warm is this jacket? I live in Buffalo, NY and need something that can withstand 0 temps.  Can I zip a layer into it as a lining?

Asked by: WinterIsComing
Hey there, The Beta AR is a shell jacket which is designed not as an insulating piece but to be worn over a warmer middle layer, and it's primary function is to block out wind and moisture as well as sealing in warmth. Worn alone it would not do much to keep you warm, but wearing it under a down or fleece mid-layer would result in a very warm combination. It is not designed to be zip in compatible but works very well warn over lining.
