Arc'teryx Women's Beta LT Gore-Tex PRO Jacket
It's light weight, not to thick but keeps me warm and dry - really waterproof. Beautifully made too. I like the cut, it fits well.

Multi-purpose & great fit
This year I dug deep and purchased this 'hard shell' in place of a ski jacket and general waterproof for cycling and hiking. It ticks all the boxes and is hardy with a complimentary fit on a curvy female frame! It is perfect for spring skiing with a thin down / primaloft jacket underneath and being seen on my bike. It also has a great peaked, hood to hide away in.
Only draw back - no arm pit zips but so far I haven't overheated.
I wouldn't usually spend this much but I was fed up with poor quality ski jackets and waterproofs and this is everything rolled into one.

Comfortable, lightweight jacket
This jacket is very comfortable and soft to wear with no arm movement restriction. It's quite fitted for a flattering look. I was in a -20c snow storm at everest Base camp and it kept me perfectly warm and dry. There is a lack of pockets however this would have perhaps compromised the performance and allow for more air ingress.

Great quality product
I used this jacket for the first time on a trip to Snowdonia - it was extremely windy and at some times rainy. I was completely dry and did not feel the wind (although I did have many layers). But I was impressed at the wind shielding capacities of this very light jacket. It also fits very nicely.

great overall ski shell
Great fit -- not bulky. Fleece fits nicely under it. 100% wind and wet protection. Excellent jacket.

Women Beta Jacket, with about 25% off
These jackets always seem prohibitively expensive full price. So, I bought it in the pre-Christmas sale (about 25% off), plus I will detax it.
Having only worn it this last weekend, when it was very cold and I had several layers below it, I can now review it as a really good over jacket. I am pleased with it. However, as it is so new and as I have not worn it is all extreme conditions I don't know if the quality will really survive more challenging conditions and regular wear, but I hope so!
For me the colour is good for visibility on the snow - you need to be seen in all weather conditions.
I have given it good for value, as although it felt like a good price to me, I still think as a brand they seem expensive, compared to other similar quality brands??

Have had many waterproofs over the years, but so far this one is performing the best.
Very breathable considering the material and gortex.
Has kept me very dry so far.
And the fit is brilliant - most outdoor women's jackets I find that the arms are either too long or the body too short. This jacket has a good balance.
Probably good for shorter girls with long bodies like me!

I'm a big fan of Acr'teryx and this is no exception.
Performs extremely well in heavy rain and is also a decent wind stopper.
2 good sized map pockets and one inside pocket.
Rolls down to virtually nothing and packs easily.
Decent visability under the hood too
I have a Medium which fits well over the Arc'teryx down jacket.
Very good length in body and arms (I'm 5 11 and fits perfectly)
