The Arcteryx Men's Beta SL Hybrid Jacket is the most packable and supple jacket within their Essentials collection, ideal for rock climbing, hiking & trekking.
The Beta has been made using GORE-TEX® with Paclite technology in the main body and reinforced with GORE-TEX® with 3L tricot technology in high wear areas.
GORE-TEX® fabric with Paclite technology is used in the main body to minimize weight and increase packability. Key wear areas utilize 3L GORE-TEX® with tricot technology to boost durability. The DropHood™ pulls snug for increased visibility; WaterTight™ zippers minimize material use and create a streamlined profile.
High wear areas are reinforced with hardwearing textiles at abrasion points and high-stress areas. The Beta SL Hybrid Jacket puts N40p GORE-TEX® 3L with tricot technology at the shoulders and under the arms, areas particularly vulnerable to wear from pack straps.
Gussets under the arms to allow the arm to flex without the sleeve riding up, and the cleverly designed DropHood™ cinches securely to move with the head, increasing freedom and peripheral visibility.
