All ski pants are not created equal.

When you are the Arc'teryx Men's Beta AR Pant, life is pretty dang good. You relish in the fact that you are an elite snow pant that can take whatever hellish winter conditions your owner or the world can throw at you. No biggie. You were made with a three-layer Gore-Tex Pro Shell, so you guarantee waterproof protection and breathability. The N40r-X fabric seals out any adverse weather, while being supple and notably soft to the touch. On the hard-wearing areas in the seat, bottom legs, and knees Arc'teryx placed the N80p-X fabric to offer extra protection and durability. This pant is fully seam sealed with micro-seam allowance that reduce bulk and weight and improve breathability, so your base layers will remain nice and dry.

To further keep out the elements, you, the almighty ski pant that you are, have 3/4 length WaterTight side separating zipper, which doubles by being easy to remove over boots and crampons. A trim athletic fit with articulated shaping delivers mobility. Then there's the elastic waist with adjustable front closure, the Keprotec instep patch to protect against edges, crampons, and boots, and the Cordura powder cuff to keep the snow out. Yep, you've got it all.

  • Gore-Tex Pro Shell membrane (3-layer)
  • N80p-X and N40r-X shell fabric
  • 3/4 length WaterTight zippers
  • Elastic waist with webbing belt
  • Articulated knees and seat and gusseted crotch

Very nice from my initial impressions

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

Love the fact that these are so long (almost to long). This is rare for me, someone that wears 36 inseam pants usually. I bought the Medium Long. I have a 32 waist and they fit just about right, not to big for sure, if anything just a touch small in the waist. I am very happy with the fit and confort. It would be nice if the legs unzipped completely so you could put them on and off with out removing your skis, but I am not sure how often I would use that feature. 4 stars and I would give them 5 if they would have unzipped completely.

Another Arcteryx gortex that wets out

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

I purchased the latest Beta AR Pants in August when they came out. Today 30/12/13, they saw their first proper use. I went up Helvellyn. It rained, and rained, and snowed. Within 2 hours they had wet out around my groin (fly zipper was up). By the time i reached my car (3.5 hours), enough water had soaked into my trousers, which fried my mobile phone, which was in my pocket. Nice one Arcteryx!
Why did they fail? They are BRAND NEW. They shouldn't need treating.
You state 'guarantee waterproof protection'.
Notice the key word WATERPROOF. I purchased these expecting to be kept dry. I think this is called 'misleading'.

Arcteryx are good at one thing, its called Marketing. Don't be drawn in by it, because the Arcteryx bubble is an expensive bubble to burst.

Responded on

One thing I noticed about Arcteryx is they use Cotton thread to stitch their logo where other companies have gone to a stamped silicone logo.
