"My gf gave me this jacket for Christmas right before we went skiing at Whistler. We only had 3 days and it rained the whole time and this jacket kept me dry. It's storm proof!"

"Love me some Whistler, but that's horrible to get rained on during your Xmas skiing vacation."
It is worth it!

"The Arcteryx beta jacket is an awesome rain shell and good for up at the mountain. Being from the Pacific Northwest I pretty much wear it almost daily nine months out of the year. This thing is a beast in the rain and fully protects you from any moisture. I bike around town and it never disappoints, and it keeps me dry even in the craziest of downpours. I also wear it while I snowboard and with a little under layer this jacket is awesome on the slopes on those cold and nasty days. The one down fall is the price. It is a tad expensive. But the quality is above and beyond any other jacket I have ever owned. I do admit I used to be a North face guy, but since I got the beta jacket a little over a year ago I will have to say that I am now an Arcteryx man! I figure with it's durability I probably won’t need another storm proof jacket anytime soon. My 2 cents: it's worth the price."

"When I have my Arcteryx Beta Jacket all zipped up with the hood tight and wearing goggles I feel like Jeremy Renner’s character in the Hurt Locker—indestructible, but obviously in a really light weight version of the bomb suit. This jacket rocks! And it does feel like this jacket can shield you from anything. It is my overall favorite jacket I have ever owned, it is also the most expensive jacket I have ever owned. Thank you grandma! The cut and straight-up style of this jacket is cool, but you add the superior waterproof protection and the breathability and all of sudden you are in a whole other league. It has good placement of outside pockets, inside pockets and the optional zippers under the arms. Also, the hood fits good over my helmet, which is an extra bonus. This jacket works well up at the mountain on stormy days and sunny days. This thing is awesome as a rain coat. I wear mine pretty much all the time, and would consider it my go-to jacket, especially if it is moist outside. I recommend getting it in black, so you can wear it out on the town on stormy winter nights. "

"Cold weather does not faze me anymore. This jacket is awesome. I literally can wear the Arcteryx Beta AR jacket for any of my favorite cold weather hobbies. The watertight external zippers, helmet compatible hood, and all the pockets make me very happy. The fit is great and makes it very comfortable to wear.
