Description

Winter, spring and in between.

The hike through Jackson Pass was definitely a challenge. Snow to your knees and three hours of slogging, but your legs are still dry and feeling good thanks to the Gore-Tex goodness of the Arc’teryx Women’s Beta AR Pants. And after ski season has passed, the ultra-high breathability, you can trek into the woods for some springtime hiking.
  • Gore-Tex Pro Shell 3L and Tiny Gore tape block snow and moisture so you can play for hours without getting soaked
  • Micro seam allowance reduces bulk and weight and makes the Beta Pant extra packable
  • Elastic gaiters stop snow from heading up your legs when you are in the deep stuff
  • Articulated knees, a gusseted crotch, and an athletic cut give you freedom of movement in a slim package
  • Water Tight external zippers seal out the elements
  • Keprotec instep patches serve up durability and protection that way your hems don’t get chewed up by your boots or you crampons

Skiing Naked!

The Beta AR are so comfortable you feel like you are wearing nothing at all! The pants are invincible on the days when the weather is the nastiest, stay dry when sitting on a wet ski chair and keep out hurricane force winds. The shells can be worn from the warmest spring days to the coldest of cold. The waistband keeps out the deepest snow even when upside down. The full length zips are fantastic if you wear a knee brace. You will love these pants!!!

The down side, only one small pocket.

What type of laundry soap or Tec wash is best to use? Is it better to machine or hand wash these pants?

Responded on

Using a techwash Works pretty well http://www.arcteryx.com/product-care.aspx?EN arc'teryx recommends this stuff called grangers but I've used other stuff before. I usually just handwash goretex til it stops performing and then give it a full techwash

Responded on

Grangers works well on my gear. I have also used Nixwax for waterproof breatheables.

Hi Susie- machine wash is fine, gentle cycle, low spin... any of the sport soaps are good, Nikiwax, penguin, etc... don't use your normal laundry detergent.... extra rinse is good too... there should be a tag inside that says the specifics...

Most stock is limited to what is on hand (unless backcountry buys out an oversupply from the factory). New stock begins to arrive sometime in september if you can wait

Durrable Construction

These are my go-to rain pants for hiking in the PNW. I’ve mostly been using them for mountaineering, which they work extremely well for. The reinforced material on the inside of the ankles has saved me from kicking holes in them several times. It adds weight and stiffness, but has been worth it for me.

Though the side-zips do not extend the entire way up the pant (they end 5-6” from the top of the pant), I prefer this. This does mean you have to step in and out of the waist of the pant to put them on or take them off. The benefit for me has been that the waistband of your backpack does will not rub on zipper ridgelines. Overall, it’s been a compromise that has been worth it for me – I tend to just start our mountain hikes w/the pants on since they need to be layered under my harness anyway.

This pant might be a bit too heavy for summer hikes – I’m sure you could find a lighter/cheaper option, but I wear them all year’round.

As for sizing, I’m 5’2”, 120# and typically wear a 4/6. I ordered these pants in small and still have enough room for several thick warm layers underneath. They are too long for my short legs, but the excess material scrunches above the reinforced inner ankle panel (so it’s not in a place where it’s going to get in the way).
