The Arcteryx Women's Beta LT Jacket is a lighter weight version of Arcteryx's classic Beta AR shell, cutting nearly 100g out by using a lighter weight fabric. This jacket is a brilliant versatile shell for all round mountain use - perfect for those who are active in the mountains year round climbing, skiing and hiking, and want one jacket to do it all. It won't be quite as durable as the Beta AR but this means a little less weight on your back. The other main weight-saving difference is the lack of pit zips on the Beta LT.
Gore-Tex Pro fabric is waterproof and breathable, whilst being light and supple to make wearing the jacket a pleasure. The helmet compatible and adjustable hood moves with your head as your turn, keeping your vision unobstructed even in the worst weather. Adjustable cuffs and hem seal out the elements. Two large pockets and an internal one provide ample storage for all your essentials and are accessible whilst wearing a harness or rucksack hip belt.

Very very lightweight but performs like a much thicker kagoul and fits well, with enough space for several fleeces underneath. Sleeves are nice and long which I find unusual for women specific jackets. The chest pockets are easy to open when wearing a rucksack. The inside pocket is pretty small and my phone does not fit inside it - but I usually have my phone in a fleece pocket so it keeps warm, so this is not an issue for me. The hood fits securely onto your head when you pull on the various cords - even in a 99km wind on the top of a Munro in northern Scotland. Very happy with it.
I bought as other ski friends recommended Arcteryx. This is sold as a lightweight jacket which was my primary reason for purchasing as required a fully waterproof storm jacket that could easily be stored in a backpack. Very pleased with the lightness, helmet compatible hood and cut of the jacket. Although marketed for ski touring combining this with something like a Rab Ninja top underneath should provide a winning combination for all but the most extreme conditions. The Goretex Pro shell is extra thin in this model but that does not seem to impair performance. Minor criticism is that the pockets are not as deep as some other jackets. Otherwise very impressed and because of the light weight will be used more often than a heavier ski shell. A worthy investment.
