Hiking without the Arc'teryx Beta SL Jacket would be a mistake. Not only is it constructed with waterproof and breathable GORE-TEX®, it's super packable so you can easily stow it in your bag and be on your way, knowing you've packed excellent storm protection along. The Beta SL also has articulated patterning that allows you to move freely and a StormHood™ with a laminated brim that keeps water away from your face. The features go on and on (WaterTight™ zippers, fully taped seams, an adjustable hem drawcord), but there's only one way to truly experience the Arc'teryx Beta SL Jacket: wear it.
