The Beta LT sets the bar for all other technical wet-weather shells, and at a list price of $525, one would certainly hope so. But there are loads of expensive jackets out there, many of them featuring Gore-Tex fabrics and sophisticated construction.
So why choose this one? The fit, for one, is a cut above the competition; a slightly-extended rear hem fits comfortably under a climbing harness, the hood is cut with enough room to wrap over a skiing or climbing helmet and the trim fit through the body keeps the all-important interior layers closer to your skin. All these elements come together to help make the best use of the carefully-chosen fabrics and sealed seam placements.
All in all, you’re getting a Gore-Tex Pro shell with the great styling and attention to detail that Arc’teryx is known for, making for an outer layer that can keep you dry and comfortable season after season. Best of all, today you can knock $157 off the list price — making one of the best rain jackets available just within reach.
