The versatile Arc'teryx Women's Beta AR Jacket is the ultimate outdoor companion, capable of taking on everything from skiing and hiking to alpine expeditions. As the number two in Arc'teryx's Essentials line, the Beta AR bears an uncanny resemblance to it's big sister, the Theta AR. Both jackets are sleek, all-weather and all-conditions beasts, but the big difference between the siblings is the Beta AR sports a higher hemline that sits at the hip. Just like the Theta AR, the Beta AR is made with Gore-Tex Pro and sealed with tiny Gore-taped seams to shut out rain and snow while still maintaining breathability for high-intensity activities. Laminated zippers are icing on the cake, and in combination with the construction, offer you weatherproof protection from blinding snow, sideways rain storms, and even your toddler throwing apple juice your way. High-wear areas of the jacket are reinforced with extremely abrasion-resistant N80p-X Gore-Tex Pro for increased durability without tacking on too much weight. At under a pound, the Beta AR is light on weight, but it's also heavy on features that fit your active life. Laminated underarm vents open quickly and without hassle, and the underarm gussets give you the chance to move to the beat of your own drum without the entire jacket bunching up. The microsuede facing on the full collar protects your chin from chafing against the jacket in chilly temps, and the helmet-compatible DropHood sports a laminated brim so the rain and sleet won't cloud your vision. No matter what adventure you have lined up for the day, wear the Beta AR with the confidence that it will help you perform your best.
