Arc'teryx - Beta SL Jacket - Men's

The waist-length Arc'teryx Beta SL Jacket is an excellent all-around GORE-TEX® Paclite® jacket that is ideal for hikers, bikers, or those who require lightweight and packable storm protection without Arc'teryx's climbing-specific features. With a trim-fitting StormHood™ and lowered hand-warmer pockets, this piece is a great choice if climbing helmets and harnesses aren’t in the backpack.

Product Reviews

Great, lightweght jacket, pit zips would be improvement
I've been using this jacket for two years now and am very satisfied with it. I use it in a variety of sports, activities and conditions, but primarily for mountaineering and backpacking.

The highlights:

After two years of use, the jacket is still in great shape: all the seams and high-wear areas are completely intact. Indeed the jacket still likes fairly new despite heavy use. It breaths well and is completely waterproof and I like how the pockets are high enough so as to not be caught behind my backpack waist strap.

The reason that I give the jacket a 4-star review is because I really wish it had pit-zips. Another nice addition would be a a cord that allows you to tighten the area around the neck. The jacket currently has strings allowing you to tighten the hood around the face, but when it is cold I can feel heat escaping out around my neck and it would be nice to be able to cinch this area down.

I don't have any complaints, but just feel these changes would make a rock-solid product a perfect one. If Arc'teryx made these two changes, the jacket would be an absolute 5-star product.
