Arc'teryx Beta AR Glove -

The Arcteryx Men’s Beta AR Glove is comparable to a snuggie for your hands. Full coverage warmth with unrestricted movement is the name of the game. The Beta AR Glove boasts a super technical and fancy removable fleece liner consisting of not one, but two fabrics. Polartec Thermal Pro Tweed fabric over palms and under fingers ensures superior dexterity while a high-loft fleece insulates the back of the hand. And with the Gore-Tex N80p-X waterproof and breathable fabric, your extremities will stay dry and nimble. A Lezanova leather palm overlay puts a final touch on the Arcteryx Men’s Beta AR Glove for low maintenance, washable and breathable coverage.

The Beta AR Glove by Arcteryx is an all around insulated waterproof alpine glove. The Arcteryx Beta AR Glove has a Gore-Tex® Pro outer shell fabric that sheds all types of precipitation with and inner hi-loft fleece liner that provides ample warmth over the back of the hands and a hybrid fleece liner that improves dexterity. This great glove also has minimized leather palm overlay over the fingertips. The removable liners are easy to care for and are machine washable. These fantastic gloves have a removable wrist leashes to make it easier to hang on to these great gloves. Keep your mitts warm and dry in all weather conditions.

Arc'teryx knows you would really rather not have to pull off your gloves to adjust a clip, tighten a buckle, or perform any other winter-sports fine-motor tasks, so they made the Men's Beta AR Glove. It was designed to keep you bone-dry with its waterproof, breathable Gore-Tex Pro membrane, tightly-woven the proprietary N80p-X shell fabric, DWR finish, and fully taped seams. Functionality is given a boost with the supple Lezanova goat leather overlay on the palm and tops of fingers, because it's highly breathable, washable, and doesn't require special leather treatment. Elastic at inside wrist snugs the glove against your hand without requiring adjustment, and the short gauntlet length lets you wear it over or under your jacket cuff so the white stuff stays out. A removable wrist leash allows you pull off the glove without worrying about dropping it.

Dexterity was also on the mind of Arc'teryx designers with this glove, so you wouldn't have to pull off the glove every time a buckle or a zipper needs a bit of adjustment. Tri-Dex construction patterns each finger individually for exceptional precision, and smooth, seam-free fingertips let you pick things up without seams getting in the way. The removable liner features a thinner fabric on the palm, you'll be able to put your gear to rights without exposing your fingers to the cold. The liner is made with premium high-loft Polartec Wind Pro on the back and lighter-weight Polartec Thermal on the palm side to balance warmth with maximum dexterity.

Arc'teryx Beta AR Glove Reviews:


Google search "best ski glove" and the Arcteryx Alpha SV is the top pick. The Beta AR is the younger brother to that glove having a shorter cuff and less leather (on top). The advantage to the shorter cuff is versatility: over or under the sleeve for wet snow or rain. The Beta AR also has the Tri-Dex construction, giving it the same articulation and dexterity of the Alpha SV. Another great feature is the carabiner loop on the finger tip (not on the Alpha SV), allowing these gloves to hang attached to your backpack/belt loop, without filling up with snow. Three reasons this glove stands out above the rest:
1. Amazing dexterity
2. Fully waterproof
3. Top quality (as you know from Arcteryx)
When I received these gloves I put the dexterity to the test by wearing them from home to the resort (including: starting the car, driving, putting on and tying my boots, etc). Not once did I need to take them off for dexterity! They also performed flawlessly for skiing/snowboarding, etc. Believe the hype!

I searched long and hard for a glove that was waterproof on the outside (not just a membrane on the inside) and a full leather palm, and these are the gloves! :) I actually have these in the women's, but they are the same. I use them winter rafting. They've got great dexterity for rigging and using my hands, and they are perfect for rowing. They stayed pretty much dry, but on a month long trip last year, the leather stayed soaking wet for like 2 weeks and it soaked through. (But that's understandable). These gloves obviously aren't as warm as mittens, but they did keep my hands pretty darn warm, and when they didn't, I just threw a heat pack in the glove on the back of my hand and it stayed in place. Love these gloves!

I just got these and I am excited to see how they do on ice. they are super warm and I feel like I have tons of dexterity and grip on my tools. I have run some laps on my ladder board trainer with them. the construction is like a work of art. so beautifully made. I will update this when I climb and ski with them more.
