Arc'teryx Beta LT Jacket -

The Arc'teryx Men's Beta LT Jacket is a no-nonsense GORE-TEX® Pro waterproof shell that is light enough to take with you on any pursuit. My buddy Jeff owns one of these and I'm always jealous when I see him wearing it on hiking trips. I asked him to give me a quick review but he muttered something about me doing my own job. Jeff is grumpy today. But the Beta LT doesn't care how grumpy or incosiderate you might be towards your friends, it will still keep you fully protected from rain and wind. Weighing in at 12.5 oz, it is extremely packable and will withstand being crammed into your pack, even in a grumpy Jeff-like manner. So pick up this shell and rest assured that it will always be there for you when times get tough, even if you've alienated everybody else in your life. Like Jeff.

The Arc'teryx Men's Beta LT Jacket gives you the lightweight construction you want for fast-and-light alpine assents without sacrificing any of the weather protection you need for life in the mountains. The LT takes the bombproof AR and slims it down in the weight department. A Gore-Tex Pro three-layer, fully seam taped shell holds off the worst storm you'll encounter and breathes incredibly well. The LT is made from N40p-X shell fabric, which is supple, yet durable. The fit is trim, but with e3D Ergonomic 3-Dimensional patterning, including articulated elbows and gusseted underarms, that enhances your mobility and comfort in tight spots.

WaterTight zippers will block out any and all moisture in your wake, and when it gets bad, hide under the helmet-compatible, fully adjustable storm hood with a laminated brim and lock down the cuff tabs and hem drawcord. Even with all this protection, the Beta LT Jacket still only weighs 10.1 ounces, which is less than in years past.

Arc'teryx Beta LT Jacket Reviews:


After discussion with Arc'teryx representatives, I was told that this year (2013-2014 Winter), the Beta LT and Alpha FL are the slimmest jackets available with very similar cuts. Now why the Alpha LT wasn't included in the discussion, I have no idea. Because I wanted the slimmest available jacket in GT-Pro, I went for the Beta LT. I have no regrets. I am ~37" chest, ~30.5" waist, 125 lbs, and my previous favorite jacket was a ca. 2009 Norrona Falketind Pac-Lite jacket (size S). When I replaced it was a ca. 2012 Norrona Falketind GT-Pro jacket (size S), I was really let down because the cut of that jacket is far larger (especially in the upper and lower torso). Now, with this Beta LT (size S), the fit is fabulous - it's slim but I have full range of motion of my arms and have room to fit a Mountain Hardwear Nitrous insulated layer. The construction is top-notch (Made in China, if that matters to you). BUT, there are a few drawbacks that keep it at 4.5 stars if that was an option to select:
1) The hood doesn't cinch as tight as Norrona's. It does cinch down a fair bit, but if I'm not wearing a helmet or another hooded layer underneath, it doesn't quite go tight enough to grasp onto my head like Norrona's.
2) There are no pit-zips. I realize this is by design, but because I tend to use it for more active pursuits, I would have loved the addition.
3) The main zipper is smooth, but I must say that it feels kind of dainty in hand. Only time will tell if it puts up with the abuse over the next few years - I hope so!
I find these to be extraordinarily minor criticisms, so I'll still bestow 5 stars.

Fit: 6'2" 190lbs - Large
Fit is athletic with enough room to layer all but hte thickest of down jackets. Fits perfect with a Atom LT.
The proshell on the lighter weight LT is much nicer in my opinion then that on the AR the ripstop is on the inside instead of the outer layer so its not visible, meaning a smoother face on the fabric.
Jacket is long in the back which is perfect for the hip cut.
Pockets are easy to access and large. the new style zipper on the front works great, really happy to see the laminated zipper gone.
Wish it had pit zips, but more out of nostalgia. Fabric breathes well enough I haven't needed them yet. Seems are stitched and welded perfect, arms are articulated so they are not restrictive when you move. large cuffs so you can get a large gps watch in and out without issue.
Perfect year round jacket, light enough to wear on its own in the summer and just enough room to layer for the winter.
Another Note: The pockets are gore on the interior as well so they cannot be used as vents

All around AMAZING!

I've had several waterproof breathable jackets over the years and this one is my new favorite! It is hard to beat the quality and attention to detail of Arc'teryx. It comes with a bit of a price tag, but their quality is incredible. This new Gore-tex Pro fabric is INCREDIBLE. I've tested products for Gore-tex as part of their MountainTechs program for several years and that has given me the opportunity to test numerous jackets. The combination of breathability and durability of this Pro fabric is absolutely amazing! The athletic cut of this jacket fits me well, but I had to size up on this jacket compared to some of my previous jackets from other brands. I like how minimalist and lightweight this is, while stilling being a rugged jacket that I can use wherever I go in the mountains.

Great lightweight jacket for all

This is a good jacket if you don't want something as baggy as the AR. It is a lighter weight jacket, not as warm but still feels durable. I bought this for more aerobic activities and while it is quite breathable I would prefer to have pit zips. All in all a great jacket, not sure if it's worth the price tag though as competitors in this range sell theirs for about 30% - 50% less.

It's worth every cent.

Wow!! Such a great product. Second Arcterxy jacket I have purchased. They are pricey but you get a great product. I've already bought a number of jackets but this group knows how to produce. Survived Cleon 2013 and Dion 2013, great for layering under, breaths well and maintains heat when layering. You won't be disappointed.
