Arc'teryxBeta SV Jacket - Women's

Type 2 fun awaits you.

Built for adventurous pursuits where severe weather is imminent, the Arc'teryx Women's Beta SV Jacket delivers unrelenting protection from the worst conditions imaginable. Think uphill slogs through raging snowstorms, soaking deluges in coastal forests, and battering winds on exposed summits for the Beta SV's preferred usage. It's the most durable jacket in Arc'teryx's Essentials collection, thanks to its Gore-Tex Pro 3-layer construction, complete with a woven micro-grid backer for extra protection from abrasion.

Gore-Tex Pro construction acts as impenetrable fortress from driving rains, wind-blasted summits, and heavy snowstorms. This means you'll stay pleasantly protected from the worst conditions, regardless if you're suffering through a summit quest or pushing through unrelenting rains to the next campsite. Reinforcing the jacket's most vulnerable points from moisture intrusion, WaterTight zippers along the main closure, exterior pockets, and underarm vents keep the heaviest precipitation from sneaking inside and dampening your body.

Cinching tightly to seal out the elements, the helmet-compatible StormHood features nifty Cohaesive adjusters that tighten with the simple push of a button. The StormHood's laminated brim keeps moisture from dripping inside and obscuring your vision. Taller for additional coverage, the extended collar zips up nicely to keep out the elements, complete with a brushed lining for soft-wearing comfort. Other nifty extras include articulated patterning for uncompromising range of motion, as well as internal pockets for securing essentials within close reach.

Arcteryx Beta SV

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs large
  • Size Bought: L

I love this hard shell ! It’s kept me super dry in some pretty wet conditions and it’s also really good at keeping the drafts out. I put on base layers and I’m plenty warm. The sleeves are a little long and it’s kind of noisy when moving around but those are minor concerns. I fit a medium but purchased a large because I like to layer up and I thought the medium would be too tight. The large is a tad loose after all the layers but it’s not too bad. The hood is great because you can adjust to fit.
