Superlight, compressible womens GORE-TEX jacket with Paclite product technology. Designed for packable emergency weather protection. Beta Series: All-round mountain apparel | SL: Superlight.
Weighing only 280 grams (9.9 oz) and highly packable, the womens Beta SL Jacket is carefully designed to stay unnoticed until its needed. Intended as emergency weather protection for hikers, backpackers and trekkers, it is made from N40r GORE-TEX fabric with Paclite product technology for reliable, proven waterproof/breathable performance. Designed specifically for women, the patterning, built in freedom of movement and careful feature placement elevate the Beta SLs fit and functionality.
As weight and space are critical factors in the Beta SLs performance, the lightest and most packable GORE-TEX fabric, N40r GORE-TEX fabric with Paclite product technology, is used. Waterproof and highly breathable, the fabric protects from the weather and offers a higher level of comfort during activity. As the Beta SL is intended for periodic emergency use, a less abrasion resistant textile is used to eliminate weight and bulk. However, the fabric has a mini ripstop construction that provides added tear strength without impacting weight.
The goal was to pare the Beta SL to its essence and achieve specific functional requirements for the lowest possible weight. Careful, efficient construction techniques allow Arcteryx to use micro seam allowances and tiny (13 mm) GORE seam tape. The Trim fit reduces fabric requirements and improves breathability. Carefully articulated patterning and gusseted underarms provide freedom of movement without adding bulk. The low profile Stormhood offers complete coverage with a streamlined design. This is a true minimalists hardshell, designed to be light, small and efficient.
