The Arcteryx Beta AR Jacket is a superbly versatile jacket for use in harsh mountain conditions. Ideal for the climber or backcountry skier requiring a minimal jacket in the most durable and breathable fabric. It has a longer back with a hip length cut for ease of use with a harness. The fit is with a regular cut with e3D, ergonomic three-Dimensional patterning, designed to enhance a greater freedom of movement.
The main body uses a lighter 3 Layer Gore-Tex Pro fabric, in order to reduce the overall weight and make the jacket more packable. The shoulders and hood top have a heavier reinforcing 3 Layer Gore-Tex Pro Shell fabric, ensuring durabilty in high wear areas. 3 Layer Gore-Tex Pro Shell is the toughest and most durable waterproof fabric in the Gore-Tex range. It has been constructed for intense activity that may include frequent stops providing the high levels of breathability required by the climber, mountaineer or ski tourer. Watertight pit zips enable fast ventilation when you're working hard.
The two zipped hand pockets are generously sized for stuffing gloves, maps or guidebooks into while inside the internal zipped pocket will keep valuables safe. The helmet compatible DropHood features concealed front Cohaesive cord lock adjusters, that can be done with one hand, allowing for a good seal and will rotate with your head so your vision is never impaired.

I've not had a chance to fully test out this jacket yet, but as soon as I picked it up I could immediately tell it was vastly superior in quality to my old Berghaus jacket. It fits fine with enough room for an insulated jacket underneath and there is no restriction in movement although a little noisy. I can see this jacket lasting many winters and probably outlasting myself.
