A mainstay in the Arc'teryx lineup since 2000, the Arc'teryx Men's Beta AR Jacket is a versatile waterproof/breathable jacket that offers durable storm protection in a lightweight and packable format. This hip length GORE-TEX Pro jacket reduces layering bulk and adds a helmet compatible hood that offers quick storm protection, and reinforced shoulder and elbows. Hip length is the easiest to work with when layering waterproof/breathable garments. Not too short so it doesn't ride up or expose the lower back and not so long as to be cumbersome underneath a harness or a pack belt, the Beta AR hits the middle ground.

Best hardshell jacket ever


This is the best jacket I've ever owned, and I've owned a few. I was hiking in the Adirondacks and it rained every day. The Beta AR kept me dry and shielded from the wind. Arm vents worked well and I didn't get wet but vented well. I really like the trim fit which also cuts down on the weight a bit. I also had it with me when I hiked Mt Whitney but, thank goodness, the weather was great and I only wore it once in some windy conditions. Back at home here I layer it with a Atom LT and it is perfect for dog walks in the low 30s. It is expensive but a rock solid piece of gear.
