J-Wampwrote a review of Arc'teryx Beta AR Jacket - Men's on October 10, 2007
This jacket is great. There is plenty of neck room so when you zip it up you aren't choking when you lift the hood up, unlike my Marmot oracle. The Gore-tex Pro is super breathable. Zippers are tough and general design principles seem to be really well thought through. For instance when you draw the hood closed the straps aren't flying out in your face, they pull nicely through gussets that keep them clean. Really nice jacket, well worth the price. One thing is that it only comes about an inch below the top of your hip bone but the cinch cord shuts it down so air cant get up in there. I look forward to testing it out with a New Hampshire winter!
