Rated 5 out of 5Â by Rona22 Great jacket - flattering fit
I was persuaded just to 'try on' the arc'teryx beta AR by my boyfriend which was a slippery slope indeed... The fabric felt great: lightweight, smooth, matt finish and it made a satisfying crackle as I put it on. The fit was great: I'm 5"10, size 12 with a bust - the jacket nips in nicely at the waist but had room enough for a down jacket layer underneath. The length of the cut was great and it doesn't ride up when you lift your arms up either. The technical aspects of the jacket are of course well thought through too: hood big enough to accommodate a helmet, large front pockets, lined and covered to prevent seepage, pit zips, etc - all simple yet effective, no frills or added weight.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Mischa88 Best Jacket Out There
Whilst hiking Tour De Mount Blanc in some very testing wet and cold conditions the Arc'teryx Gore-Tex Pro Jacket stood up to the elements keeping me warm and bone dry.
Despite my friends wearing their own Gore Tex and waterproof jackets, I could feel the envy in their voices when discovering I was still dry whilst they shivered away....Winning!
PROS: Durable, Good Ventilation, Adjustable Wrist Tightness, Good Sized Hood, Fashionable Colour, Conveniently Located Pockets, Folds Away Nicely
CONS: Cant think of any!

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Barbie240 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.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Varry 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!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by MountainMaid15 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

Rated 5 out of 5Â by sheri3466 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.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Carrotfell The weight and feel of this jacket is brilliant.
Arcteryx has produced a light and very effective jacket.
