User Review: Arc'teryx Men's Beta AR Jacket
Price Paid: $289
I thought that the Arc'teryx products would be priced out of reach until I recently found this jacket on sale. While only color the store had remaining (black) would not be my first choice, the fit and finish looked awesome. The zippers work well and the hood has lots of adjustments for a tailored fit. The inside chest pocket is very handy and the whole thing stuffs down very small.
The Gore-tex Pro shell is very light and although a little on the stiff side. The few times I've had it in the rain, it has performed perfectly.
Although I will kayak with my other shell due to its brighter color on the water, this will be my backpacking go-to shell, as well as what I will probably throw on for just running errands around town due to it being stylish.
Quality appears to be top-notch, but I'll need to report back after I've broken it in a bit.
Very happy with my purchase.
