5 Stars Pullman - January 20 2012

Arcteryx Beta
Likes: The cut, the water proof protection, breathability, ease of moveability, and zippers under the arm pits to open up the coat and cool down. Dislikes: I was most surprised that the zipper pull/lanyard was not as durable as other coats I've had and looks a bit on the cheap side although it doesn't effect the function. Also, just a note about color. I purchased the "nightshade" color thinking that it was grey. Indoors it looks blue grey; however the zippers are a green color and in outdoor lighting the color is more green. If you like green, this color is for you.

awesome jacket!
Since I've got this, I've been using it almost everyday to commute by bike. The ventilation works very well, so I never get moisture even if I sweat a lot. very comfortable one!

Great jacket!
This is pretty much a perfect jacket. I have been drooling over Arc'teryx for a long time now and finally decided to take the plunge. Leaving in a temperate climate I often find myself in rain, heat, and cold, sleet, snow. Get a little bit of it all. Just the jacket is perfect for 40-65 degrees. Any colder and throw a fleece underneath and you should be good to go! At first I thought the sleeves were a bit to baggy until I started moving in the jacket soon I realized they were like that for a reason. Range of motion in the arms is great.

5 Stars Chesbeau - October 29 2011

Superb Jacket!
Like most of my other Arcteryx jackets (I own 5), this too is a winner for both the way it looks and superb, build quality. I wear the Beta to work, out in the field, and on cool mornings through dense fog. Though size XL is long in the sleeves by 2 in. (properly turning them up and over without noticing later on), the overall fit and length is very good. Hoods are useless when you wear hats. They not only typically block my vision, but deatachments should always be mandatory; this is not a premium accessory. Therefore, I always pay particular attention to the collar length/height for additional style and practicality in sometimes very hostile weather. This is a serious light-weight but substantial outdoor jacket for anyone who wants comfort, style, and substantial protection from the elements.

Great fit and awesome color
I'm a fairly skinny guy and could not find a right fit rain jacket until now. The Beta in S runs true to size, fits me like a glove. The quality is incredible - the stitching and all the details are taken care of; the gore-tex fabric feels really soft and it is easily packable. I'm glad i went for this jacket - i bought the one in color blue and the Altrec image depicts it very accurately - it's a very refreshing color. It's an investment but by the looks of it, this jacket will last you a lifetime. My wife has the women version of this jacket and while caught in many rain storms, it held up great and she was dry all the way. Thank you for offering a great product.
