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
  • Single zippered hip pocket
  • Keprotec instep patch
  • Cordura powder cuff with lace hook and hem drawstring

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.

Bought as a gift

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift, but have feedback to share
  • Fit: True to size

But I wished I had a pair!! These look and wear great from what I can see. The minimal belt system works like a charm. The individual wearing these is vertically challenged and the Med/Short fits spot on.

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.

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.

Side Zips?

If these were full side zips I would get them...whats the deal Arc'teryx? No full side zip gore-pro pant? Yeah you can get them over your boot/crampon. But you can't put them on standing up let alone with a pair of skis on. Think. There is better stuff out there, all the gore-tex stuff comes from the same factory in china anyway.

Responded on

I didn't realize there were pants in the world you could put on while wearing skis....maybe tear away pants I suppose?

Responded on

Yeah, any "full side-zip" pant is able to put on over skis or crampons without sitting down...maybe they should just say tear away to avoid the confusion! It is a really helpful feature for adding or removing layers in steep exposed terrain where sitting down and having a yard sale with your gear is out of the question.

Responded on

Yeah, I saw those but they are made with Paclite, super lightweight fabric, I am pretty rough on stuff so probably not the best option for me, but they are full side zip! only if they made them in gore pro then it would be a BA pant.

Responded on

hey im also looking for 3 layer with full zips anyone knows any alternatives?

Responded on

it is my understanding that these pants would the be pants you would put on first thing and wear all day. You would only have a base layer or insulated pant underneath. More of a ski mountaineering pant than a "second skin" pant you keep in your pack just in case the weather gets dicey.
If you are branded to arcteryx you might want to look at the Alpha SL Pant or bib. They have full zips and are designed to be the emergency storm fortress for just in case situations!

Responded on

I think a ski mountaineering pant should have full side zips to accommodate different layering options. These are for Front Country use only.
