Arc'teryx Beta SL Hybrid Jacket
Superbly packable and very supple, the Arcteryx Beta SL Hybrid Jacket combines the beneficial properties of Gore-Tex Paclite and Gore-Tex C-Knit. A versatile Gore-Tex waterproof that's extremely lightweight, the Arcteryx Beta SL Hybrid will provide capable and efficient protection from coastal drizzle and moorland storm. Protective and comfortable to wear, rucksack compatible and space-saving, the Beta SL Hybrid ensures your day ends as dry as it started.
GORE-TEX with Paclite
Employed throughout the main body of the Arcteryx Beta SL, GORE-TEX with Paclite technology is durably waterproof, windproof and extremely breathable. Paclite technology combines an outer layer of Arc'teryx's resilient N40r nylon face fabric, with a Gore-Tex membrane at its heart. The waterproof membrane is then protected by an oleophobic (oil-hating) and carbon substance, eliminating the need for an extra inner layer of fabric, thus effectively reducing its weight, increasing breathability, and reducing its pack-size.
Reinforcing the shoulder area of the Arcteryx Beta SL Hybrid, is a panel of GORE-TEX C-Knit, which combines the breathabilitly and waterproofness of a standard GORE-TEX membrane, with a really soft and smooth lining fabric, creating a waterproof fabric that's supple, packs down easily and comfortable to wear. GORE-TEX C-Knit is more durable than Paclite, hence its use on the shoulder area of the Arcteryx Beta SL Hybrid, allowing the jacket to deal with the abrasion caused by rucksack straps.
Waterproof and weather-proof features include a WaterTight Vislon front zip, eliminating the need for bulky, breathability-reducing storm flaps, and a helmet compatible StormHood. The Arc'teryx StormHood is designed for full weather protection, it can be cinched-in with a single hand and rotates with your head for unrestricted visibility. The hem drawcord can be cinched-in to seal out cold and tailor the fit. DryCuff laminated cuffs create a rain-proof seal around the wrist. The Arc'teryx Beta SL Hybrid Jacket will protect you from torrential rain - even in severe weather and gale conditions.
Comfort is increased while wearing the Beta SL Hybrid with WaterTight pit zippers, allowing fresh air to circulate freely inside the jacket - especially useful during summer storms, and while using the Beta SL Hybrid for more active pursuits generating heat build-up. The Arc'teryx Beta SL Hybrid's WaterTight zipped front pockets are placed to allow hand access, even while wearing a rucksack hip belt.
Sized to accommodate a light layering system for versatile use, the Arcteryx Beta SL Hybrid has a tidy fit, while its slightly longer length provides good coverage. Ergonomic 3-Dimensional Patterning brings an additional level of articulation to the shoulders and elbows for easy arm movement, and exceptional freedom of movement in active use.
Highly breathable, weather-protective, extremely lightweight and packable, the Arc'teryx Beta SL Hybrid Jacket is a comfortable multipurpose GORE-TEX waterproof. Fully featured for days out on the hill in difficult conditions, light and packable for travel and ideal as well-dressed everyday weather protection.
