great jacket
This is another surprise from Arc'teryx-I knew I'd get great,super high quality gear from the bird co.,but this just iced it. Warm,very comfortable,deep front zip,but what did it for me is the warmth to weight ratio and the fact that it's so thin-but really keeps me warm.Easily as warm as other heavier weight fleece that I have.One of my best,and quickly becoming a favorite. I have other 100 weight and 200 weight polartec fleece from other companies that don't hold a candle to this one.It's the warmth to weight that really does it.I'm a minimalist when it comes to clothing (travel light-freeze at night)so this can take the place of two midlayers stacked.

A nice rain jacket
This rain jacket is the most affordable Arc'teryx hardshell. However, Arc'teryx still put a lot of effort into designing and making this jacket. Good fit and very well-made even though it is not made in Canada. Use it in the city during rainy days. Keep me dry all day. I'm 5'8", and 175lb, a size M fits me great.

You couldn't ask for more from a rain jacket. This will keep you dry in the harshest weather. Very lightweight and breaths well, great for summer rainy days. Also works well as a shell in cooler weather.

This is a very powerful jacket
This is a very powerful jacket, I wear it hiking in the rain, you can give me good protection, can not rain I can keep my body temperature. And it is very wear-resistant fabric, resistant to programs. In the tree branches to wear without fear of being cut, I would like to recommend this jacket you bought will not regret it!

Superb Light Shell
I really like this shell. The Beta SL is lightweight I carry it with me everywhere in my bag. Durability is good and the design cannot be beat. I have a Canadian made one and its excellent. Used it on a trip through the Andes in Colombia was the perfect shell for the climate there. I have a medium which is slightly large for my frame but I bought it knowing that so I can layer under it.
