    Great Protective shell

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large
    • Height: 5'11"
    • Weight: 190lbs

    Keeps you warm and dry with ease. Extremely durable. Harness compatible pockets are great. I'm 5'11" 190 with an athletic build and wear a large. It's pretty loose, which makes sense if you need to layer underneath for extreme temps. The armpits are the only exception. If you have a big chest, definitely go up a size. I also found that the jacket came untucked from my harness after a couple pitches of climbing, which got annoying.

    Warm & Dry

    • Height: 5'11"
    • Weight: 140lbs

    This shell was well suited for the high winds and heavy rains on a winter backpacking trip to the northern pacific coast. Downpour rain was no challenge for this shell. It is also very warm for not being insulated, so I can't imagine needing too many layers for snow sports. The underarm zippers are very useful for dumping heat.

    Storm Mode

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large
    • Height: 5'7"
    • Weight: 205lbs

    Top Quality Workmanship, Fully Adjustable Hood that can be Cinched Down and Keep the Wind and Rain Out. Thicker Material is a little bit noisy but gives the overall feel of a Bullet Proof Outer Layer. I was out last night in blowing Snow 25 F with gust of 25-30 mph and stayed toasty and dry with a Cerium Lt Hoodie as a Baselayer. I went with the Ember High Viz. Color, If I'm out in Nasty Weather I want People ( Cars ) to be able to see Me

    Benchmark Product

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Small
    • Height: 5'5"
    • Weight: 155lbs

    I love this jacket, very easy to throw on for most occasions, its not to hot but it does keep the weather on the outside of the jacket. The higher pockets are very comfortable and easy to put large items in without it feeling uncomfortable, and are still accessible if your wearing a harness or a backpack with waist straps. If you need a single jacket for basically everything you do, this is a great choice.

    The fit of this jacket is athletic, tapered through the body with lots of room in the shoulders and sleeves. For someone like me who lifts weights with a smaller waist and a larger chest/shoulders, this is a great jacket that wont get too tight if I decide to bulk up but wont feel loose or floppy .

    Burley Shell

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

    The Beta AR is one of the most durable shells out there. It has a burly 3 layer gore tex construction that is great for really any weather you throw at it. As Arcteryx all around jacket you will find this jacket in harsh conditions anywhere from the wall to the ski resort. The fit isnt too snug or trim either that you can still layer an insulated piece underneath. If you are looking for your go to bombproof shell, look no further.

    As Waterproof as it gets

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large
    • Height: 6'1"
    • Weight: 230lbs

    I didn't use this jacket traditionally. I wore it underneath a waterfall and did not feel any water come through at all. My pants were soaked but my upper boy was bone dry!
    The jacket does have a plasticky feel to it and has no insulation what so ever. It is a just a shell. But a pretty darn good shell at that!
    This shell is great for skiing and snowboarding. Nothing is going to make through this shell. I would wear a sweater underneath depending on the weather but I usually wear a large and the jacket had enough room for a sweater underneath.
    The price point might seem high but this jacket is going to last you years!
    I definitely recommend this for any outdoor junkie that likes to stay dry!

    Amazing waterproofing!

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large
    • Height: 6'1"
    • Weight: 230lbs

    I stood under a waterfall for more than 10 seconds with this jacket. Soaked to the bone on my legs and completely dry on top! AFits true to size!

    Hard between sizes

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 6'0"
    • Weight: 175lbs

    I couldn't be happier with the performance of this jacket. The fit can be a little bit hard to decide. I am a Large in most of Arc'teryx mid-insulated layers and they fit like a glove. (i.e. Cerium, Atom, Proton) But I have a hard time getting the fit I want out of both the Medium and Large. Large is too big on it's own, but with multiple layers it fits well. Medium fits better with fewer layers but will start to get a little snug with more layers. I'm 6' - 175 lbs. and went with a Medium. Little tight with layers but not bad. Really just depends on what you see yourself mostly doing in the jacket and decide from there. It is well worth the price and you will have it for several years to come. Highly recommended.

    Predictable sizing and durability

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large
    • Height: 5'10"
    • Weight: 215lbs

    My goal was to purchase a new shell that I could use for all four seasons. This was meant to be a hiking shell, biking shell, everyday rain shell, and the main use for me was a winter shell to wear over a lofty down jacket.

    The only issue I have ever had with Arcteryx is their sizing. It's a brand that is built for tall, skinny, slim people. Not average height chubbies like me. I'm 5'10" 215 pounds 44 inch chest and 35 inch waist with a slight beer gut (the dad bod is in, guys). This forces me to purchase a large so I can get my broad shoulders in it and zip it over my modest belly. In doing so, I have a TON of extra material in the arms/arm pit area and the sleeves are hilariously long. If I use the velcro cinches around the wrist, there's a lot of material just bunched up on the arms making it look like I'm a kid wearing my dad's jacket. I will probably just start to roll the sleeves.

    So as an everyday wear to work rain jacket, I've eliminated it and will have to look for something else. But for everything else, it was been exactly what I needed. Water beads off, durability makes it feel bulletproof, there's no question there. It's just the sizing that frustrates me even though it fits easily over my lofty down jacket.

    So overall, another great product from Arcteryx with the expected sizing issues that I've always encountered. The only item that has ever fit me perfectly was the Atom LT in a large but overall the shells and larger insulated pieces are just too big for me and the mediums are too tight in the shoulders and torso. The features are design are great though. The visibility with the adjusting hood is a must. Pit-zips are flawless, pockets are deep and comfy, literally no issues at all.

    Good first impressions

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'11"
    • Weight: 177lbs

    Yet to put the jacket through it's paces but first impression are very positive, everything is there as expected. Don't want to give it 5 stars as that may be a bit premature and this jacket ain't cheap.

    In relation to sizing i'm 5'11& 175 pounds and the medium is perfect, i have plenty of room for ample layers, the torso and arm length is on the money.

    Bomber jacket for extreme conditions

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'8"
    • Weight: 170lbs

    Great jacket if you ever find yourself in a major downpour sleet hail wind event. I wear a medium size and it fits well I’m 5 foot eight and 170 pounds big shoulders long arms. I would wear A light fleece on up to medium down jacket as a second layer And it is perfect

    POOR QUALITY CONTROL

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I wont be buying Arcteryx products again - my husband and I bought 3 products, one pants and two jackets and had problems with all of them.
    We dont want refunds we just want gear that works. As we live in Mexico City it is really difficult to return stuff. The quality control is poor. My jacket zipper broke when I was pulling it up in a gentle/normal fashion - after two weeks of use. My husbands jacket got a whole in the lining and the buckle that keeps your paints off fell off my sentinel pants. 3/3 very bad experience
    Over all the gear is poorly designed and doesnt have good quality control now that it is no longer made in Canada and all made in China.
    Dont bother buying it if you want it to last for more than two weeks.

    Awesome Shell!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large
    • Height: 6'2"
    • Weight: 160lbs

    This jacket is awesome! The GORE-TEX waterproofing, along with the windproofing has kept me incredibly comfortable in a variety of conditions, hiking and riding in cold and snowy Utah and Wyoming. I love the cut on the jacket, it fits the body super well, and looks really really good! My dad has one of these too and also absolutely loves it!!! Highly recommend for a top layer in any condition. Fits true to size.

    THE best. Hands down.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Xxl
    • Height: 6'2"
    • Weight: 280lbs

    Ive had other shells before, but this one is the best performer ive ever had. Downpours are no longer an issue and wind? What wind?

    Issue with Size

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: small
    • Height: 5'10"
    • Weight: 148lbs

    This jacket is obviously very well constructed and is made of the crunchy gore text pro that feels bullet proof. I just can't use this jacket because of the size. At 5-10 and a slim/average build the small is both overly baggy and too short at the same time. It's clear it's meant for layering in cold conditions, but then why barely make it come down to the belt? I would be swimming in this for just an outer rain layer climbing a 14er in summer.

    Is this item is 2018 year model?
    or 2017year model?
