    Lightweight, durable, packable, and ready for action.

    The ultra-versatile Arc'teryx Women's Beta AR Jacket is the ultimate outdoor companion, capable of taking on everything from skiing and hiking to alpine expeditions. As the number two in Arc'teryx's Essentials line, the Beta AR bears an uncanny resemblance to it's big sister, the Theta AR. Both jackets are sleek, all-weather and all-conditions beasts, but the big difference between the siblings is the Beta AR sports a higher hemline that sits at the hip.

    Just like the Theta AR, the Beta AR is made with Gore-Tex Pro and sealed with tiny Gore-taped seams to shut out rain and snow while still maintaining breathability for high-intensity activities. Laminated zippers are icing on the cake, and in combination with the construction, offer you weatherproof protection from blinding snow, sideways rain storms, and even your toddler throwing apple juice your way. High-wear areas of the jacket are reinforced with extremely abrasion-resistant N80p-X Gore-Tex Pro for increased durability without tacking on too much weight.

    The Beta AR is heavy on features that fit your active life. Laminated underarm vents open quickly and without hassle, and the underarm gussets give you the chance to move to the beat of your own drum without the entire jacket bunching up. The microsuede facing on the full collar protects your chin from chafing against the jacket in chilly temps, and the helmet-compatible DropHood sports a laminated brim so the rain and sleet won't cloud your vision. No matter what adventure you have lined up for the day, wear the Beta AR with the confidence that it will help you perform your best.

    Arc'teryx – Women's Beta AR Jacket

    Designed specifically for women and featured to handle a wide range of terrain and conditions, the streamlined Beta AR Jacket provides light, packable, durable storm protection. Hybrid mapping technology strategically positions two weights of GORE-TEX® Pro fabric to optimize specific performance benefits. Highly breathable GORE-TEX® Pro with N40p-X face fabric is used in the main body to keep the jacket packable and light. Hardwearing N80p-X GORE-TEX® Pro provides abrasion resistance in the shoulders and forearms to elevate durability.

    The Beta AR rainjacket is my beta.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    I initially had the beta SL womens jacket because I wanted pit zips and waterproof goretex material to keep the water out. And this didn't work. It failed severely, and I took it back to Arcteryx in Toronto and they gave me full credit back. I decided to upgrade to the Beta AR out of fear that I would get soaked again, and boy do I love it.



    Use background:

    - backcountry camping, hiking, sport climbing

    - all types of weather (rain, snow, drizzle, hail)



    Pros:

    - made out of goretex pro (not goretex pro lite which is the material that previously failed on me)

    - extremely waterproof

    - extremely lightweight

    - pit zips, and overall great design

    - generous hood



    Cons:

    -expensive

    - fitting (I usually wear a small/medium and am 5'8, but go with the medium to layer. Also looks great without thick layers)

    The Beta AR rainjacket is my beta.

    Kept me dry in the Kenai

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: small

    I bought this jacket last winter for snowboarding. I ended up using it in most of our outdoor trips - like alpine hiking, snowboarding and multiple fishing and fly fishing trip. We just came back from a fishing trip in the Kenai river in Alaska and I fell sideways (with my left arm dipping in the water first). Boy I was happy that I was wearing this jacket on top of my waders!
    One thing I don't like though is its tough to take off the blood stains and slime from the salmon. :(

    Not totally waterproof

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: M

    Love this jacket on a normal day, but wore it last weekend skiing a heavy storm day and had my Iphone 6s in the pocket and the precip that got in killed it. Beware...

    the do-all technical shell

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium

    This thing is bomb-proof. I've had mine for about 4 years, and the only sign of wear is a grease stain on the sleeve from some stupid dirty chairlift (I'm still bitter...). I bring it with me everywhere -- it's my skiing shell, my backpacking buddy, my go-to layer when it's windy at the crag. The pit zips are huge and offer great ventilation and the helmet is the perfect size to fit over a helmet. One thing that I don't particularly love, however, is the fit. I'm a smaller build, and though the Medium fits great with layers, it's a bit bulky when worn alone. For my next Arc'teryx shell, I think I'll try out the Beta LT for a trimmer fit.
