Designed with minimal bulk in mind, the Arc'teryx Women's Beta SL Hybrid Jacket lends itself to lightweight backpacking, backcountry tours, and climbing trips where saving pack space is essential. Two different fabrics maximize protection from the elements while maintaining durability and lightweight efficiency. Functional details, including a helmet-compatible StormHood, laminated DryCuffs, and WaterTight zippers, seal out the elements without weighing you down.
Responsible for its lightweight feel, Gore-Tex 2-layer Paclite construction repels oncoming rain and snow while minimizing bulk in your pack. It's reinforced with stronger Gore-Tex 3-layer construction along high-wear areas, meaning it'll withstand the abuse of strenuous outdoor activities. Another big upgrade, the Gore-Tex C-Knit backer maintains an ultra-supple feel while improving the jacket's overall breathability. Ultimately, this combination of two different Gore-Tex fabrics keeps you blissfully dry during inclement conditions—all without the heft and crinkly feel of standard Gore-Tex jackets.

- Q & A
The Beta Will Never Stop Doing its Job
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
I gave this jacket to my wife for Christmas last year, and it has absolutely performed in every situation she has put it through. We went on a trip to Florida and it kept her completely dry as we walked to the beach in a complete down-pour. It has also been amazing as her top shell when we going skiing here in Utah. It keeps the moisture off and totally shuts out any wind from seeping through. I highly recommend the Beta if you're looking for a jacket to last you a life time and never stop performing.
