Arcteryx Beta AR

A superbly versatile GORE-TEX Jacket, the fully waterproof Arcteryx Beta AR is constructed from three-layer GORE-TEX Pro for extensive durability in rugged environments. The Arcteryx Beta AR is exceptionally breathable for dryness in demanding activity, while its feature set keeps you protected in the most extreme weather. Arcteryx’s attention to minute detail ensures that each element of the Beta AR functions efficiently and intuitively, and that weight is kept to a bare minimum.

GORE-TEX Pro Membrane
Arcteryx GORE-TEX Pro fabric delivers the highest level of waterproof and breathable protection available. Its three-layer construction's waterproof membrane has a high density of pores allowing moisture vapor to pass from the inside, out, even when you’re expending plenty of effort. The pores are too small for water molecules to pass through blocking, even wind-driven, rain and snow. 

Micro Grid Backer
The GORE-TEX Pro Micro Grid Backer is the lightest and most compressible backer available; it's twice as durable as a traditional tricot backer, significantly extending protection of the Arcteryx Beta AR's membrane, while remaining highly breathable for a comfortable non-clammy feel.

Tough Face Fabric
N40z-x face fabric is bonded to the exterior of the waterproof membrane. It has an exceptional strength-to-weight ratio, its carefully selected yarns and dense construction limit fibre breakage under abrasion, providing long lasting snow and water shedding capabilities. The Arcteryx Beta AR body’s face fabric is extremely smooth; fuzzy, water-retaining yarn filaments are eliminated which would otherwise retain water molecules, hampering breathability. The Arcteryx Beta AR is reinforced in critical, abrasion-prone areas with N80p-x, an even more durable fabric that also offers extensive breathability.

Movement Compatible
The Arcteryx Beta AR Jacket's e3D Ergonomic Patterning allows plenty of space to move freely, no matter what your activity. The shoulder and elbow patterning is designed accommodate the extensive arm motion required for climbing or skiing, while underarm patterning allows upward arm movement without the hem rising. The Arcteryx Beta AR can accommodate a variable layering system, while retaining a neat fit.

Storm Seal
Fitted with a helmet-compatible, single-hand adjustable DropHood with a laminated brim, the Arcteryx Beta AR will seal out the stormiest of weather. The hood is cut and adjusted in a way that follows head movement so vision isn’t obscured at critical moments and its high collar offers plenty of extra protection.

Fully Featured
The Arcteryx Beta AR has single-hand adjustment on the hem and cuffs to seal out cold and allow the Jacket to be worn over a winter layering system, or cinched in for active summer use. Underarm WaterTight venting zips can be undone allowing fresh air to circulate on ascents or warmer weather. The Arcteryx Beta AR Jacket’s hand pockets are placed to allow compatibility with a climbing harness or rucksack waist belt. An internal zipped security pocket stores your phone/wallet close to hand.   
Refined Details
The complexity of an Arcteryx design isn’t always visible; refined details include a Micro-Seam Allowance,  Tiny GORE seam tape and WaterTight Zippers that reduce bulk and weight, and increase breathability. The Beta AR’s tough die-cut cuff adjusters won’t catch or tear off, while laminated elements increase strength and reduce weight.

cheapest site for this jacket in this size and colour, great price and service.

i would'nt hesitate in shopping with them again.

tested the jacket yesterday on an 8 miler in cold, wet/hail and very windy conditions and its fantastic.

I only had a base layer underneath and was comfortable throughout the walk. the fit is great and although the hood is big the adjuster cords work really well so im really happy i chose this jacket.

Excellent service
Tuesday, 20 March 2018  |  Anne

Jacket is so light that I thought I had forgotten to put a coat on. Keeps the wind out. Ordered Sunday evening, delivered Tuesday morning. Excellent service from Escape2, will certainly use again

Love this jacket

The jacket is just what I was expecting. The quality really good and the size perfect for a slim 14 year old. The delivery service and delivery updates excellent.

The Delivery works ok. Would appreciate if the parcel was delivered at a nearby pickup point. Product was as expected.

Great jacket, nice fit. Excellent service too. Would recommend.

Really tough and a belt for life i reckon
Thursday, 15 March 2018  |  Daren

So never really cared about belts to be honest and always used stock ones that come with trousers but they so tend to fail quite quickly, so had enough and i know this brand is awesome! From the get go it is super tough and although new and waxy it totally grips from the get go, i think also it will get better and better with time! So well made this i think could easy last a decade or more, have a feeling at 48 i may never need another belt unless i fancy another colour in the range

Fantastic service & great jacket

Fast delivery and jacket was perfect for my slim 13 year old son.

Excellent Service & great gloves

Day 5 of wearing gloves in extremely cold and snowy conditions and have kept my hands extremely warm, and definitely water proof. Also great service from Escape 2, arrived within 2 days of purchase - thank you!

stylish and warm

great jacket that is a lovely colour and very warm. Couldn't be happier with my choice

Warm and stylish
Sunday, 11 March 2018  |  Keryn

With the right layers, this jacket kept me warm and comfortable in -30C conditions in Austria recently. The cut is stylish and slimming (when it was normal cold and I didn't need four layers underneath!). As a snowboarder, I would have preferred about another inch on the length - that was the only reason I didn't rate it five stars.

Great Zip Neck

This is a first class zip neck it is so comfortable to wear and keeps you nice and warm
