Another quality piece from Arcteryx!
Haven't had a chance to use these yet but the fit and finish it top notch - typical of Arc'teryx. I normally wear 30" inseam pants and thought I might be between sizes (S-28.5" and R-30.5"). I bought the short length and they are perfect, so I'd say they seem to run a little long. My last pair of rain/wind pants only had an elastic/draw string waist so the front snap and zipper on these will be very convenient.

Men's Arcteryx Beta Pants
Bought these pants for my move from Florida to Washington state - glad I got em. We finally got some snow in the Cascades and I got to try them out on a five mile hike in the mountains. I had a pair of Polar tec long johns on and these pants - I was warm and comfortable and most important - DRY!! They fit great and they are built to last. They aren't cheap, but you get what you pay for!! Looking forward to more snow and more back country hikes!! I like em' so much I'll get a pair for my girlfriend!

Arc'teryx Beta AR
These are very durable and functional pants. Compared to other GoreTex shell pants I used to have, the Arcteryx are indeed waterproof/windproof, and for a much longer time. After some intensive usage they do not seem to require any treatment (Nikwax) to restore waterproofness, as it happens to my non-Arcteryx GT gear.

There are two words that summarize Arc'teryx products: superior quality. If you want a pair of four-season pants for anything outdoors, get these. They're incredibly durable, waterproof, breathable, 3L Gore-tex ProShell, and consistently rated 5 out of 5 stars by various online reviewers, not just by me. I can't wait to take these hiking/trekking as rain/snow pants as well as skiing all winter. I'm 6'3" and have a 34-35" waist and 34-35" inseam - the Tall Large fits me perfectly.

I'm 5'9"/160 and I picked up the Large/Short and these are perfect for me. Lightweight with room for layers underneath on the cold days. Haven't taken them on the slopes yet but they worked great snowshoeing and hiking. Best shell pants I own.
