Beta LT Jacket
Offering lightweight, reliable protection from the elements, the Arc'teryx Men's Beta LT Jacket is a great choice for all your alpine adventures. Whether you're hitting the skintrack hard to maximize your pre-work powder laps or ascending a storm-battered peak, the Gore-Tex Pro fabric keeps you dry through the wettest weather while offering exceptional breathability so you don't overheat.
When the wind on the ridgeline is so strong it's making the snow fall sideways, the helmet-compatible hood features a laminated brim so you can maintain you visibility. The two large hand pockets are placed high so you can still access your mountain essentials, even when wearing a harness or backpack. And, although the Beta LT sports a trim fit, the ergonomic patterning and gusseted underarms ensure uninhibited mobility so you can tackle technical climbs and ski rugged lines without restriction.

Typical Arcteryx quality. I have several Arcteryx jackets and what sets them apart is the design and fit. Any company can throw a Gore Pro fabric at you. But many of them are just square blobs. Spend the extra $$ and go Arcteryx. You won’t be disappointed. Note that the “Pro” fabric is more noisy or “crinkly” than some of the other versions such as the C knit. I don’t mind it and after a few minutes you don’t notice it. I also have the Alpha FL which is superb as well.

The Beta LT is test piece for Alpine pursuits. GORE Pro ensures that you will stay dry in any conditions while the simple design ensures you aren't carrying anything you don't need. High pockets keep your essentials out of the way while carrying a pack or wearing a harness. Longer length and e3D patterning keeps you covered and mobile. The Beta LT is a no nonsense alpine piece that will last for years to come.

Like a Warrior!
A huge WOW to this jacket! As the reviews say, totally lightweight and the breathability is out of this world. Though it isn't your ordinary rain jacket, you feel secure in this shell from the weather. Ready for any battle Mother Nature throws at you! I had tried this jacket on at an event in some rainy conditions doing all sorts of activities; from ski training, disc golf, and some rock climbing. I was moving all over the place and not a single drop of water on my dry cloths, it really keeps you dry with that sweet 3 layer Gore-Tex membrane! This jacket will take you some great places whether you’re out on the slopes or camping in the backcountry, it will be a perfect fit for any trip. Solid location for those side pockets, really came in handy when using a climbing harness. The strip of Velcro had a nice fasten, sticks on straight giving an even cuff every time. Plus I love the fit, has a nice trim to get that technical feel to it. I’m 5’8” and the medium fit without a problem!

Took this bad boy on my last snowshoe trip. Warm....dry....light! And I feel like it makes me look bad ass....which at 41 is a great feeling!

I got a blue one (duh) because I was heading into the hills for a pretty long time. As I was going to the Cascades and was expecting a lot of rain and snow and wetness (PNW stands for Pacific North Wet), I knew I wanted a bomber outer layer. The Beta LT did that and more. Really lightweight, packable, sheds water like no other jacket I've used, takes a lot to wet-out, looks good, feels good, and was pretty burly for such lightweight material. I was out there for a month with no contact with the outside world and this jacket held up to constant rain, snow, sun, rocks, and the errant ice axe spike. Summary: Tough Light Worth it

Favorite shell I've ever owned
a couple months and 50+ days out outdoor wear and this jacket is holding up great. XL is perfect for my 6,1 180 frame so I can still get my layers underneath

Beast of a Jacket.
Looks good a medium fit me great I'm 5 9 and 165 pounds. Can comfortably fit a Patagonia down sweater underneath. Feels bomber and bone dry.

One of the Best
I spent 3 months in Patagonia with this jacket and loved it. The weather down there can be totally unpredictable so to have a jacket as packable as this as well as light is crucial. One of my only hang ups was wanting a little more length at times on the jacket, that being said I knew what I was getting when I purchased so more of my own fault.

very light and durable, I love it
As soon as I receive the jacket last week I used them right away and when we went to MT MARCY, it was cold around 20 degree and pouring heavy rain , I did not regret buying the jacket it serve really well and its so breathable and very light. CONS: - the pocket inside is little bit small for my IPhone 6 plus . but the rest is ok . - it would be better if they will put ventilation zipper under the arm. I am happy with the purchase specially I got it on sale from BACK COUNTRY

Perfect for me.
This is my second beta from arc'teryx with the gortex pro. I normally wear a large but it seems that they oversize a little bit. With the large I can wear a hoodie underneath and still have room for another layer. I don't believe this to be bad, but some might. The coat is extremely waterproof and durable to outside elements. It doesn't rub in the wrong places when moist or wet and drys quickly. I have a hard time considering another brand for the same purpose.

Thoughts on this as a shell for skiing? I am worried that the cheaper beta lt hybrid won't be durable/windproof enough, (obviously would layer under it but still). Is the more expensive beta lt the better move?

I love the narrower cut of the Beta LT jacket. I am 5'10" and 165lbs with monkey long arms. I fit a medium perfectly (for reference I wear a medium Alpha SL and a small Theta AR. front zipper is 28" long so it just comes down over you pants/shorts and has a drop of 3-4" in the rear. The chest is 2-3" narrower in the torso than the alpha SL and shoulders are a tad narrower. The arms however are plenty long (bonus). 2 large chest pockets can fit nearly all i need for day excursion and an inside chest pocket is perfect for my phone or wallet. The new pro shell breathes relatively well but it still needs some pit zips on muggy rainy days. Great jacket - love the way it fits but looses 1 star for lack of pit zips

if youre layering, you need to size up. I'm 5'9 200lbs. I was misinformed and got a large. It was too tight with the layers. so I had to go with the XL. This jacket is my best all season wear, just wished it had pit zips like my alpha hybrid SL.

Large Beta LT
I got this jacket in both medium and large and kept the large. The medium was too tight around the chest area for me. The large fits identical to a Medium alpha LT. The key differences for anyone comparing the two are: 1. Beta LT uses thinner/lighter vislon zipper 2. Beta LT has 1 less hood adjustment 3. Beta LT brim is less bulky than the Alpha LT 4. Beta LT has No pit zips 5. Beta LT logo is not stitched and its made in China I like the Beta LT over the Alpha mainly for the pockets and the fact that I never ever used the pit zips in any of my shells.

Finally - it's Slim!
After discussion with Arc'teryx representatives, I was told that this year (2013-2014 Winter), the Beta LT and Alpha FL are the slimmest jackets available with very similar cuts. Now why the Alpha LT wasn't included in the discussion, I have no idea. Because I wanted the slimmest available jacket in GT-Pro, I went for the Beta LT. I have no regrets. I am ~37" chest, ~30.5" waist, 125 lbs, and my previous favorite jacket was a ca. 2009 Norrona Falketind Pac-Lite jacket (size S). When I replaced it was a ca. 2012 Norrona Falketind GT-Pro jacket (size S), I was really let down because the cut of that jacket is far larger (especially in the upper and lower torso). Now, with this Beta LT (size S), the fit is fabulous - it's slim but I have full range of motion of my arms and have room to fit a Mountain Hardwear Nitrous insulated layer. The construction is top-notch (Made in China, if that matters to you). BUT, there are a few drawbacks that keep it at 4.5 stars if that was an option to select: 1) The hood doesn't cinch as tight as Norrona's. It does cinch down a fair bit, but if I'm not wearing a helmet or another hooded layer underneath, it doesn't quite go tight enough to grasp onto my head like Norrona's. 2) There are no pit-zips. I realize this is by design, but because I tend to use it for more active pursuits, I would have loved the addition. 3) The main zipper is smooth, but I must say that it feels kind of dainty in hand. Only time will tell if it puts up with the abuse over the next few years - I hope so! I find these to be extraordinarily minor criticisms, so I'll still bestow 5 stars.

Fit: 6'2" 190lbs - Large Fit is athletic with enough room to layer all but hte thickest of down jackets. Fits perfect with a Atom LT. The proshell on the lighter weight LT is much nicer in my opinion then that on the AR the ripstop is on the inside instead of the outer layer so its not visible, meaning a smoother face on the fabric. Jacket is long in the back which is perfect for the hip cut. Pockets are easy to access and large. the new style zipper on the front works great, really happy to see the laminated zipper gone. Wish it had pit zips, but more out of nostalgia. Fabric breathes well enough I haven't needed them yet. Seems are stitched and welded perfect, arms are articulated so they are not restrictive when you move. large cuffs so you can get a large gps watch in and out without issue. Perfect year round jacket, light enough to wear on its own in the summer and just enough room to layer for the winter. Another Note: The pockets are gore on the interior as well so they cannot be used as vents
