Arcteryx Beta AR Jacket
- Gender: Male
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
This Jacket is a durable product that fends off the elements extraordinarily well. Its advertised as a versatile jacket suitable for all activities which I will attest to. I use this jacket for everyday use along with skiing, rafting, hiking, climbing and golfing. It is a good fit for slimmer people and provides sufficient dexterity in the joints for any activity. I will say in really cold temperatures I can't fit enough warm layers underneath it to stay warm, but that is a rare occasion. It is advertised as having a hood that can fit ski helmets but I never can get my helmet inside. Small flaws for an otherwise excellent jacket. I have had mine for a little over a year and have used it hard; It is showing little to no signs of wear and tear. A testament to its durability! Finally, Gore-Tex remains the superior breathable water repellant I have used and this jacket does just that. I recommend it for all people whatever your interests may be.
