Arc'teryx Women's Beta AR GTX Pro Jacket
I like the jacket very much - but it hasn't really been tested yet!
it was squashed up horribly during and seems to be coping with that very well. Its weatherproofing qualities have yet to be properly tested. I did find the collar and hood a bit of an annoyance, but this was probably because I didn't really need that for this trip.
I used it on a riding holiday, which is not what it is designed for but Arcteryx lightness, squashability, and waterproof qualities as well as its more general uses, walking etc were what attracted me to it.

Excellent jacket & the best price online!
Great athletic fit! The length makes it ideal for back country skiing whilst the arms are great for climbing! The Goretex Pro protects against the wind and rain whilst remaining breathable! This is now my go to jacket for several sports and i have received many complements on the style and colour. I would highly recommend to anyone working or playing in the outdoors, especially in adverse weather conditions! I expect this jacket will last for at least 10 years!

The best all rounder!
This really ticks all the boxes for top quality outdoor wear. Light enough to pack away for the summer, totally wind and waterproof for layering in winter. A must for any outdoor pursuit

Great price for a great jacket!
I bought this jacket after a holiday. I wore a Paclite Goretex jacket during a downpour in Florence, and to say it leaked was an understatement. Hubby had treated himself to a lovely new Goretex jacket before we went, he was nice & dry, so when I got home I decided to do the same. Snow & Rock had this jacket at a fantastic saving, and although I haven't had a chance to wear it much recently it is a great jacket, light and oozes quality.

The weight and feel of this jacket is brilliant.
Arcteryx has produced a light and very effective jacket.

Nice fit and functional
This jacket is a great mix of very good functionality, it keeps you dry, it's comfortable to wear and it looks good. It has got a nice shape and cut. Great also for the shorter woman.

This Jacket is Superior Quality
I love this jacket. I have had the same type before and loved it but unfortunately ripped it (through my own fault), even then I had it for four years.
The jacket is lightweight and durable and the water proofing is the best I have had. I love the colour - it is great to be able to get a girly colour in the jacket I love.
The hood is also great as it is big so I can wear it over a helmet but the adjustable elastics make it possible to have it fit tightly around your face when it is really wet.
The pockets are big so it is easy to stuff a map in them when it starts to rain and there is also a great inside pocket for phone/money, etc.
The fit is good, I went a size up so that I can wear fleeces or my down jacket underneath which is perfect for that purpose.
Overall I am very happy with both the jacket itself and the supplier.

Waterproof jacket that keeps you cool, so you can work hard.
I bought this jacket to use on the 3 Peaks Challenge in July. We actually had great weather but I still needed the jacket on the top of Ben Nevis and Skafell Pike for protection from the wind. It has a great fit so I could feel comfortable whilst still walking and climbing, no overheating because of pit zips. I love the colour and style as well so I could feel stylish but still practical. It's pretty expensive but it's really well made I suspect it's going to last me 8-10yrs so that makes it worth the initial outlay. It's a great colour and I can use it for work when I go on home visits too. An excellent jacket.
