Brand:  Arcteryx



Arc'teryx Beta SL

Super lightweight and compressible, the Arc'teryx Beta SL is constructed from a GORE-TEX® membrane with Paclite® product technology. Exceptionally compact yet highly protective, this is a great Arc'teryx waterproof for multi-purpose spring and summer activities where minimal weight and pack space take priority.

GORE-TEX® Paclite®

The Arc'teryx Beta SL's GORE-TEX® fabric with Paclite® product technology employs a waterproof membrane at its heart. The GORE-TEX® membrane is bonded to an N40r nylon outer fabric with a lightweight mini ripstop construction, the inner surface is coated with Paclite®, creating a very low bulk, lightweight and compressible material that's highly breathable for active comfort. The GORE-TEX® membrane's micro pores are sized to prevent the entry of water molecules, while permitting moisture vapor to escape, creating a non-clammy, comfortable internal climate.

Minimalist Hardshell

The Arc'teryx Beta SL's GORE-TEX® Paclite® works brilliantly as an emergency shelter in a sudden downpour, when you don't intend to interact with sharp or abrasive objects; a less abrasion resistant textile is used to eliminate weight, making the Beta SL an ideal minimalists hardshell.


Fully weather-protective, the Arc'teryx Beta SL has a low profile StormHood™ which can be cinched-in with a single hand and will rotate with your head for unrestricted visibility. The laminated drop back hem as an adjustable drawcord that can be cinched-in to seal out rain and tailor the fit. The Arc'teryx Beta SL's twin hand pockets neat, laminated WaterTight™ zippers reduce weight further.

Legendary Craftsmanship

Arc'teryx's legendary craftsmanship and attention to detail is used to great effect in the Beta SL Jacket; articulated patterning and gusseted underarms provide freedom of movement eliminating the need for extra fabric/bulk to allow active use. The Arc'teryx Beta SL's micro seam allowance and tiny 13mm GORE seam tape also acts to reduce bulk and weight. Combined with a trim fit, these construction methods increase breathability.

Fast and Light

If your trail is a fast and light one, or involves unpredictable weather, the Arc'teryx Beta SL will take up a small corner of your pack ready and waiting to keep you dry, protected and able to continue through the storm. Highly breathable, compact and fully waterproof the GORE-TEX® Paclite® Arc'teryx Beta SL is an excellent super light shell jacket.

Light, strong and flexible handling
Wednesday, 15 August 2018  |  Patrick

I purchased the North Face Base Camp Duffel XXL size. This complements an existing large size duffel.

The large size made packing bulky items very easy. Despite just filling it 3/4 full for a flight, the compression straps on the side reduced the bagís size, until contents were firmly held in place.

The oversized zips are easy to operate and can take some abuse. The grab handles at either end made handling the bag easier.

I did use the shoulder straps to easily carry the weight, which I preferred , over the handles. These can be pulled taught and arranged under the handle to keep them out of the way. You can also store them in the bag.

There is an integral label for address, etc. Itís gererously sized so no fiddling trying to ram items in.

The material is very strong. My existing large bag was carried on miles over the atlas mountains, sat in freezing cold, rain and sun. Still looks good.

These are great for storing gear or to use for clothes.

Zipped mesh pocket in the lid flap, an interior mesh pocket at one end and the large quality zipped mesh bag itís comes with, doubles as a handy storage bag for organising clothes or gear within your bag.

The only point is this does require some strength to handle, verses the wheeled units more suited to city life. But if you want something that will take adventure this does it.

Great service from escape2. Love the Atom SL Hoody. Great trim fit. Hoping it will pair well with my SL vest and Beta SL shell for cold days in the hills.

Great service from escspe2 and the lt jacket looks like another great product from Arcteryx. Nice fit and feel to the improved Goretex pro , packs up nice and small and feels like youíre not wearing a shell at all. Yet to test in wet weather but with a shell this light itís always worth keeping in your pack.

Great Service and Price
