Designed for all-around mountain use, the Arc'teryx Women's Beta AR Pants will keep your legs dry during the three hour slog below treeline and will repel snow once you reach the alpine. The waterproof Gore-Tex Pro shell with fully taped seams shed snow, sleet, and heavy rain and will breathe like a champ, so you can enjoy the descent without cold and wet legs.
An athletic fit with e3D technology provides an enhanced range of motion in challenging environments while the adjustable webbing belt keeps the Beta comfortably and securely in place. The 3/4-length WaterTight side zippers help ditch excess heat during the climb and stop below the harness or hip belt area so you won't experience chafing or excess bulk in the backcountry. Arc'teryx also equipped the Beta AR with Keprotec instep patches to protect the pant bottoms against ski or board edges, crampons, and boots while its Cordura PowderCuffs with lace hooks affix the pant to your ski or alpine boots.

Arc'teryx – Women's Beta AR Pant
Made from two different GORE-TEX® Pro textiles, the Beta AR Pant is thoughtfully designed and crafted to balance complete weather protection, light weight, packability and protection from wear and abrasion. The pant is made from N40r-X GORE-TEX® Pro fabric, a lightweight ripstop that delivers waterproof protection, a high level of breathability and surprising durability for its weight. The seat, knees and lower leg are reinforced with burly, abrasion resistant N80p-X GORE-TEX® Pro for added protection in these higher impact areas.
High quality, long leg zip vents, and plenty leg room for layering. Only 1 pocket is the downside.
Amazing light weight and stylish skipant
Bought these as a gift for my Mom! And she loves them! They fit very nice and the gortex keeps her dry and warm in the chilliest conditions! These pants are top of the line. No complaints! And with the lifetime warranty you can not go wrong! A little pricey but worth every penny!
Great Christmas Gift

Got these for Christmas from my mom. Super awesome pants. Very windproof, very waterproof. She got the Raku color and I have to say it is WAY more purple than the picture shows. Makes for an awesome combination since I have the tiger lily (ie ORANGE!) Beta AR and Alpha SV as shell options. the 3/4 (really like 9/10ths) side zips are great because you don't have to worry about overdoing the zipper and can still drop the zipper for extra breathability.
Great pants for winter shell - way too much for a rain pant or something like that.
The built in gaiter is a nice feature and the bottom of the legs is nicely thickened to prevent issues with crampons.
My mom ordered a size up to accommodate baselayering but probably did not need to do this since ArcT designs their shells to fit layers underneath (such foresight so rare in many companies!). I don't mind though since I plan to use them when winter camping and such so a nice pair of insulated pants will easily fit under -- and I like them a little roomy so airflow keeps up - I don't do anything in harnesses currently so I'm not as concerned usually with a tight fit.
All in all - super pants (especially for the 130$ she got them for!) and another killer Christmas gift from my mom.
