Description: Arcteryx Beta SL Jacket

  Serious Rain Jacket

REVIEWED BY: SAM NM    2014-02-24

"If you move to the Pacific Northwest the Arcteryx Beta jacket is a must have. Moved to Portland from New Mexico a year ago and my previous rain jacket didn't cut it against all this rain. Referred by a friend to check out US Outdoor store online and I found this jacket. Yeah for me! This jacket is totally waterproof with a hood that will keep your head dry and warm. Lightweight and really compressible. I never leave home without it. Seriously. "

  Superior Rain Jacket

REVIEWED BY: KASEY EDMIER    2013-01-22

"Purchased this jacket for my trip through Central America and Brazil. I figured I needed a decent jacket to keep me dry and warm while exploring and hiking in the rain forests. The Arcteryx Beta jacket was impressive. Considering it rained about 70% of the time. It shielded the rain and kept out all the moisture while providing superior breath ability. It was lightweight and impressively durable. Easy to pack away in a backpack too. I rate it 4 stars. "

  Excellent

REVIEWED BY: ED H.    2012-10-01

"I work outdoors so I am exposed to all kinds of cruddy weather. My job has become infinitely better since I got this jacket. Incredibly warm, and water tight I am dry no matter what. However, the thing I think I love the most is that this jacket is also completely breathable."

  Awesome lightweight shell!

REVIEWED BY: APPTRAIL_TOMAS    2012-09-21

"The Arcteryx Beta SL Jacket is a great jacket to pack to have for those just in case situations. It provides maximum protection from wind and rain and is very durable. I backpacked across the country and my Beta SL was the perfect to bring with on an adventure. So lightweight you can barely feel it when it’s in your pack and protects you without weighing you down when you put it on. Awesome!!"

  BETA SL JACKET

REVIEWED BY: SAM K.    2012-03-13

"A buddy of mine loaned me his Beta SL for an afternoon of snowshoeing. I have to say this is probably the best (and most expensive) jacket I have ever worn. The Arcteryx BETA SL has proven to be completely water repellent, breathable and comfortable. I loved his jacket so much I ordered one online from here the next day!"

  Great for the Rain!

REVIEWED BY: LEE    2012-03-02

"I live in the Northwest and I like to hike in the winter. It rains a lot up here. The Arceteryx Beta SL Jacket is my go to winter hiking jacket. Not only does it keep you dry as a bone in the rain, but it shields against the wind and keeps you warm. In addition, the jacket is super light, so when conditions are nice it is easily stows away in a pack without adding too much weight. "

  2nd time around still good!!

REVIEWED BY: ARIC    2012-02-15

"The Arcteryx Beta SL is a rad snowboarding jacket! A buddy of mine thinks its funny I where Arcterx to snowboard in but who cares! It's not a fashion show for me anyways. It's more about function. It may not be all fancy and flashy like a lot of other snowboarding jackets but it's bullet proof! This is my second Arcteryx jacket. My first one lasted me through high school and college and never let me down. IMO the lightweight material Paclite is pretty cool. Besides keeping you dry you also won’t sweat underneath, which I can’t stand. When I'm not snowboarding I wear it sometimes while biking in the rain and it works great. The zipper pockets seal up nicely and keep my iPhone dry. I don’t think the pockets are totally waterproof, but as long as you are not underwater you should be ok ;)"

  I like this lightweight waterproof jacket!

REVIEWED BY: ARNOLD HANOVER    2012-02-01

"The Arcteryx Beta SL Jacket is a great lightweight waterproof shell. The Gore-tex paclite material that this jacket is made of is pretty cool. Perfect to have while hiking in the high country during summer or early fall when a downpour can happen without warning. Keeps you dry and has excellent breathability. "

  Wave of the Future

REVIEWED BY: RONALDTHOMAS    2012-01-22

"Paclite material is the wave of the future. I am a pretty minimalist hiker, I like to travel light and go big with my hikes and I hate being weighed down with gear. This jacket is pretty light and when not in use can pack down to something smaller than a grapefruit. The Arcteryx Beta SL Jacket is definitely waterproof, and when I am all zipped up and have the hood on I actually feel like I am wearing some kind of futuristic armor—medieval future mountain man. It may get a little warm inside, however I do tend to burn hot, so it might not for someone else, but I do expect a little sweat considering I am fully locked in and shielded from the moist elements and I am hiking some serious vertical. I’ve used this jacket when I was hiking the Andes and the Himalayas and it worked pretty awesome, and I have been through a few rough snowstorms in my hikes. I pretty much take it with me everywhere I go. There is really no reason not to due to its lightness and compactness. I am about 5’11 and 170lbs and the Large fits me perfectly. I definitely recommend and it is worth the price. "

  Fantastic!

REVIEWED BY: STEVE EVERETT, WA    2011-12-06

"Talk about the best foul weather jacket I have ever owned! The Arcteryx Beta SL Jacket will see you through the ugliest weather the Pacific Northwest can dish out. Snow, sleet, hail, or rain does not matter this coat has you covered. Fully compresses and stows away in a flash. This jacket fits perfectly into my outdoor lifestyle. "

  Great for travel and running

REVIEWED BY: JIMBEERS    2011-11-07

"This jacket always goes with me on vacation because it packs well does a nice job of keeping me dry when needed. I also use it as a running jacket when it is cool and rainy because it is light weight fits nicely when running. I also love the hood and the adjustability to make it work while running. It works best with a long sleeve shirt under it. I am a Gore-Tex Mountain Tech and received this jacket about two years ago. Since then I've put it to good use and have not noticed any wear. I think it will be used for many years. It is not as breathable as a pro-shell, but it is waterproof. It is also quieter then a pro-shell, an important feature when running or other active outdoor activities. It is my go to jacket for travel."

  Quality light weight shell

REVIEWED BY: SNOW_RANDY    2011-10-23

"Great breath-ability and it's a super light shell! The Arc’teryx Beta is really comfortable and will keep you dry in the worst of raining conditions. I’m very impressed with the Gore-tex Pac lite fabric that this jacket is made of. I use it for biking in the rain, and if worn as an under layer it keeps you warm and dry on the coldest days up on the mountain. "
