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 hip length cut for ease of use with a harness. The fit is with a regular cut with e3D - ergonomic three-Dimensional patterning that is designed to enhance a greater freedom of movement for sport-specific activities.
The main body uses a lighter Three Layer Gore-Tex Pro Shell with N40p-X face fabric, in order to reduce the overall weight and make the jacket more packable. The shoulders and hood top have a heavier reinforcing N80p-X Three Layer Gore-Tex Pro Shell fabric, ensuring durabilty in high wear areas. Three 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 hand pockets are generously sized for stuffing gloves, maps or guidebooks into, while inside the internal laminated pocket will keep valuables safe. A helmet compatible DropHood has great adjustment, that can be done with one hand, allowing for a good seal and will rotate with your head so your vision is never impaired.

The Arcteryx Beta AR is an excellent jacket with a lot of very sophisticated features. I have yet to test it in really bad conditions but all the signs are good. Have just bought the Beta AR over trousers to go with it so should be well prepared for the next dose of Lakeland weather, coming up soon.
Facewest were excellent, with a competitive price and very good customer service to support the whole sales process. I would recommend them to others without reservation.
