Arcteryx Beta AR Jacket Outdoor Gear review

Arcteryx Beta AR Jacket Outdoor Gear review

We just brought in a couple Arc'teryx jackets. They are amazing. And expensive. So this is part of my ongoing review finding about what we have in stock. Found this great review from

No Beta testing needed for the Arc'Teryx Beta AR Jacket. Each year it just gets better and better. This year, the Beta AR Jacket uses Gore-Tex Pro Shell in 3-layer protection. This is Gore's toughest hard shell, created for extreme conditions when comfort is of the highest priority in bad conditions. That's not to say it won't be great on a mid-winter bluebird day, but you'll be very glad you have this jacket when a storm hits and sits around for a while. It's been down peaks and chutes enough to prove its waterproof, weatherproof durability. The Beta was built for the skier who needs less but still wants it all. Weighing in at 451g, this seam-sealed jacket has a hood roomy enough for a helmet, reinforced shoulders to handle a pack, and underarm construction that won't lift the jacket when you keep your hands up to stay on top of the powder.
