Lightweight, soft, and completely waterproof.

Whether you're trekking across the High Sierras, climbing in the Wind River Range, or making a long approach to the alpine in the North Cascades, Arc'teryx's Beta SL Men's Hybrid Jacket is the ideal shell to repel wind, water, and snow during all of your remote mountain endeavors. Replacing the venerable Beta LT Hybrid, the Beta SL Hybrid Jacket boasts a lighter design and more packable nature to trim weight from your climbing kit and free up space in your backpack. Being a member of Arc'teryx's Beta series, the SL Hybrid has a well-rounded design that will work well during most mountain activities, and it's completely waterproof and breathable, so you don't have to feel like you're sacrificing performance just to save a few ounces.

Borrowing the same hybrid construction of the Beta LT, the SL is made with a combination of Gore-Tex Paclite through the body and a burly 3-layer Gore-Tex Pro shell in high-wear areas for added protection against water and wear. Where the SL differentiates itself from the original LT, though, is with its Gore C-Knit backer, which is both softer and lighter than the traditional tricot backer found on the Beta LT. As far as features go, the Beta SL Hybrid is fairly minimalist in design (it is an Arc'teryx jacket after all) with a helmet-compatible StormHood, two underarm vents, and laminated DryCuff hook-and-loop cuff tabs. The fit of the jacket is designed specifically for technical layering and mobility with a trim fit and e3D patterning with gussets in key areas for a comfortable fit when hiking, climbing, or just breaking down camp during a rainy morning.

Faulty product

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Used product barely 2 weeks. Interior started breaking down. Customer service just wanted more money to address faulty product!

Fantastic Hybrid Shell

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Small

Love this jacket. Use it for rainy or snowy days out on the trail or on the mountain. I typically use it for hiking, camping, and commuting, but have used it snowboarding a couple times, and it worked great! A little shorter than most ski jacket shells, but it got the job done. There is Gore Tex Pro in the shoulders and hood, that potentially would get the most wet, and then Gore Tex PactLite throughout the rest. It is extremely packable and I'd suggest it to anyone!

Cold Smoke tested

    Helped my uncle wade through the many options of ski jackets. Here was his feedback on this one.

    As a Montanan, when I look for outdoor clothing, it must meet high standards of both function and fit. Several years ago, I tried on an Arc'teryx Alpha jacket. Because the shoulders were a narrow fit and the sleeves were too short, I put it back on the rack and walked away. At 6'4", 195 pounds and a 36" sleeve length, finding a jacket to fit is a struggle. However, with the wonderful advice of seasoned Backcountry staff, I recently purchased the Beta SL Hybrid jacket, and to my surprise, its fit is perfect. A size large is a tailored fit in the chest, with room for layers underneath. The sleeves fit closely under the armpits and are long enough for reaching without exposing any arm. I wore the jacket while skiing in new snow with 40 mph winds, and although the jacket is light, it handled all of the weather thrown at it. I would recommend the Beta SL Hyrid to anyone who needs protection from the elements.
