The streamlined Men's Beta AR Jacket from Arc'Teryx provides the backcountry minimalist with durable storm protection in a lightweight and packable format. This hip length GoreTex Pro jacket reduces layering overlap and bulk, a helmet compatible DropHood offers quick and effective storm protection, and reinforced shoulder and elbows survive alpine abuse.
In the Arc'teryx lineup since 2000, it is the do everything, super versatile waterproof/breathable jacket for mountain environments. Hand pockets, athletic fit that accommodates maximum layers and a hood with an internal collar mean comfort in storms, climbing, skiing or simply enjoying the outdoors.
Hip length is the easiest to work with when layering waterproof/breathable garments. Not too short so it doesn't ride up or expose the lower back and not so long as to be cumbersome underneath a harness or a pack belt, this jacket hits the middle ground.
Most people only choose one jacket for all their activities, the Beta AR is a solid, well-rounded piece. Durable, lightweight, with hand pockets and pit zips for ventilation, it can manage storms, rock, snow and cool seasons. GoreTex Pro delivers the highest level of waterproof/breathable performance.
