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

Awesome all-round

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Height: 5' 10"
    Weight: 175 lbs
    Size Purchased: Medium

I've owned these since 2006. Worn them up numerous mountains and down numerous ski hills. They fit neatly over ski and mountaineering boots, keep me dry, and fit superbly. Worth it.

Well made pants, but...

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: True to size

The Beta AR pants are built like a fortress. Just understand that while the pants show tremendous craftsmanship and will keep the moisture out, they are not ideally suited for skiing in most conditions IMO. These pants would be great as an all-rounder pant if you can only have one pant, but Arcteryx ski-specific pants are much nicer for resort skiing. Namely, I like the Stingray pant which still has a trim fit, but a nice felt lining for the slightest bit of insulation while still maintaining breathability. Additionally, the Beta AR pant only has one pocket...not the best for skiing.

I cannot mark the Beta AR pants down for excelling at what they are supposed to do. Just know what you are getting.

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.

I have owned the Arcteryx Beta AR jacket and pants for six years both have performed better than expected in the worst of conditions including hours of driving rain. I had a seam tape in the hood of my AR jacket start to lift about a year ago, I have had the same problem with every gortex jacket I have owned, its caused by the oils from my head as I am bald. Arcteryx had me take the coat to my local Arcteryx seller, where they sent it out at there cost and Arcteryx sent me a brand new Beta AR jacket. The lift was about an inch but Arcteryx felt the seams should never lift, regardless of the reason. Arcteryx is agreat company with a excellent reputation. Its called a waterproof guarantee for a reason. you wont find many of these 1 star reviews for anything Arcteryx......... be warry of reviewer not product! A person of even moderate intelligence knows one bad experience with one product hardly constitutes a company that has only succeeded in marketing, particularly when your talking about a company as reputable as Arcteryx.
