The super-lightweight men's short Arc'teryx Beta SL Rain Pants are waterproof, breathable pull-on shell pants that you'll want to carry in your hiking or trekking pack for unexpected rainstorms.
The Arc'teryx Men's Beta SL Pant is a rain pant for hiking in wet weather. The SL stands for superlight, for the Gore-Tex PacLite fabric it is made of, a water and windproof material,to keep you dry when nasty weather arrives. Gore-Tex Pro fabric is placed at the cuffs to provide additional durability at this hard-wear Area. A durable water repellent finish allows water to bead up on the surface so it doesn't soak in. The pants pack down small, so they won't take up valuable space in your pack when not in use. An athletic Fit reduces bulk while still providing space for going over top your hiking pants, shorts, or base layer. The quarter length leg zippers open to allow them to be pulled on over boots. Features of the Arcteryx Men's Beta SL Pant Lightweight Gore-Tex fabric with Paclite Techology is light and exceptionally compact Instep, lower leg and hem Are reinforced with N150p-X Gore-Tex 3L with tricot Technology 1/4 length Water Tight lower leg zippers Fly zipper access Elasticized waistband with drawcord Adjustable cuff drawcord, lace hook secures pants over boots Micro-seam allowance (1.6 mm) reduces bulk and weight DWR finish (Durable Water Repellent) helps repel water from fabric surface Articulated knees and gusseted crotch
When sudden cloud bursts send everyone running for cover, pull the Arc'teryx Men's Beta SL Pant out of your pack and keep your legs dry while you push on towards the hut. Gore-Tex Paclite will shield you from the rain and, since it's the lightest fabric Gore-Tex makes, it helps keep these pants packable so you won't have to even consider leaving them behind just to save a little space. They have reinforced 3-layer Gore-Tex cuffs, too, so you won't slice your legs up powering through prickers; instead, you'll be eating up trail while all your weight-conscious companions hide under trees or spend the night roasting their hiking pants over the fire trying to dry them out.
