The Beta LT has a hip length trim fit and is designed for all mountain activities where you need ultimate protection and minimum weight. This brilliant and versatile jacket is made with a very durable yet supple plain weave nylon N40p-X 3 layer construction for high tenacity with a soft feel. The Beta LT features Arcteryx’ StormHood which is helmet compatible yet can be cinched down to fit your head without restricting vision and mobility. The main zip is a Watertight Vislon front zip which was the worlds first zip to pass the W L Gore extreme wet weather test. Two zipped hand pockets and an internal zipped pocket take care of storage duties. The Beta LT has a trim fit to maximise the breathability of the new Gore-Tex Pro Shell, basically the less air space between you and the fabric the better the performance. The new Beta LT with the improved Gore-Tex Pro fabric may well be the perfect all mountain jacket.
