The men’s BETA AR Jacket excels as an alpine minimalist and has been an Arc’teryx favourite since its inception in 2000. This hip-length shell is made of two weights of weatherproof GORE-TEX Pro. Burly N80p-X fabric reinforces the shoulders and arms, while N40r-X fabric delivers lighter all-purpose protection for the body while still providing the highest level of waterproof/breathable performance. A helmet compatible DropHood adjusts quickly and is separate from the collar for draft protection. Anatomical shaping and the Beta AR’s regular fit accommodate heavy layers for mid-winter backcountry missions. Advanced ergonomic patterning allows this shell to be worn for seasonal trekking. WaterTight external zippers deliver enhanced weather protection. The Vislon WaterTight front zipper is deflected from the face with a brushed microsuede chin guard.
