    Minimalist versatility.

    The ultra-versatile Arc'teryx Women's Beta AR Jacket is the ultimate outdoor companion, capable of taking on everything from skiing and hiking to alpine expeditions. The streamlined jacket is light and packable making it an easy grab for any adventurous trip. Arc'teryx has a commitment to deliver use specific, function driven products for women and the classic Beta AR showcases this beautifully.

    The Beta AR is made with Gore-Tex Pro and sealed with tiny, weight saving Gore-taped seams to shut out rain and snow while still maintaining breathability for high-intensity activities. Laminated zippers are icing on the cake, and in combination with the construction, offer you weather protection from blinding snow, sideways rain storms, and even a toddler throwing apple juice your way. High-wear areas of the jacket, such as the shoulders and forearms, are reinforced with extremely abrasion-resistant N80p-X Gore-Tex Pro for elevated durability without tacking on too much weight.

    At under a pound, the Beta AR is light on weight, but it's also heavy on features that are essential to your active life. Laminated underarm vents open quickly and without hassle, and the underarm gussets with the e3D patterning and articulated elbows give you freedom of movement without any pulling or tugs from the material of the jacket. When zipped fully, the microsuede collar provides draft protection whether the hood is up or down, and the helmet-compatible DropHood provides complete coverage without impacting your peripheral vision. As a bonus, the design of the collar and hood mean you can have the jacket zipped all the way up and still be able to throw the hood on should unexpected conditions hit you in the alpine. If the adventure you have lined up requires a pack or a harness, the hip length secures comfortably underneath and the slightly elevated hand pockets can still be accessed even when you're all geared up.

    • Function driven jacket to tackle a range of terrain and conditions
    • Gore-Tex Pro shell is durable, waterproof, windproof, and breathable
    • Hybrid mapping places heavier weight fabrics in high-wear areas
    • Fully taped seams and DWR treatment offer maximum weather protection
    • DropHood is helmet compatible, can be pulled on without unzipping
    • WaterTight underarm vents allow for heat dumping on burly ascents
    • Hip length and higher hand pockets are harness or pack compatible
    • e3D patterning and articulated elbows enable free range of motion
    • Item #ARC00TO

    Over the past 12 years ive owned and used to death at least 5 Beta AR shells and just last week returned to update my ski collection during the Arcteryx sale. My shell arrived and i was greatly disappointed. A new customer would not know that the new version of the Beta AR is much lighter, less durable and bombproof. The coat runs short and its i length would make it duifficult to wear a pack with a waist belt or cover insulation underneath. To obtain the same quality of older versions of the Beta AR, i had to upgrade to the Alpha SV which is about $70 more.

    I used this jacket for a Backcountry ski yurt trip that turned out to be very rainy. It kept me dry and warm the whole time. I also really appreciate the zip open pits to stay aired out on the uphills. Large enough to fit a thinner puffy under but not oversized.

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    I bought this jacket as a Christmas gift for my gf and this is what she had to say about it: "I have been using this jacket both resort skiing and backcountry skiing for about a month and I love it! It performs better than any jacket I have had before. I love the under arm zippers because they allow me to stay cool on the uphills, and all zippers seal tightly so that I stay dry when it's really wet out. The wind does not cut through at all, and I am warm and comfortable on even the wettest days, without feeling clammy inside the coat. I love the plum color and the length is good because it keeps the snow out from below. The hood is a good shape, and fits over my helmet. I would recommend this jacket for anyone looking for a versatile ski shell that's able to keep up with changing conditions, activities, and terrain. "

    I bought this as a gift for my step-mom and she has put it through the wringer! She loved in when she visited Iceland especially as shown in the picture! She raves about this jacket. It's sturdy enough to put up with her bushwhacking and occasional mountain bike rides in the rain, and it is great for snowshoeing or skiing in the winter thanks to the pit zips to vent heat. This is more than a rain jacket, and it's what you'll find yourself reaching for constantly before heading out on your daily adventures. It can take a beating and keep you dry. Gotta love the Gore-Tex! It seems thin when you first get it. but that's the best part because it shaves some of the weight without sacrificing durability. The AR for all-round in this jacket's name means just that! It's excellent. Her only complaint is that she wishes the torso and sleeves were maybe an inch longer, but it gets the job done.

    Arc'teryx Beta AR (All Around)

    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'8"
    • Weight: 135lbs

    I love this jacket! I went to Italy and Switzerland and it poured rain every day. I stayed perfectly dry and comfortable. I can fit a hoodie and a puffy under it. The hood adjusts so that is isn't covering my face. The sleeves are long like most Arc'teryx jackets, they are supposed to be long. It isn't fitted, the jacket has space for layers. All in all, I really like it. No complaints.
