Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great jacket in a small package I love how this jacket packs down to almost nothing, but delivers full blown protection from the elements. It is so easy to toss into my pack and pull out anytime mother nature decides to water her planet. This lightweight jacket offers complete protection from the rain and is breatheable. The hood fits well and is easily adjustable. All the waterproof zippers are easy to use. The cuffs are adjustable. This jacket doesn't have pit zips, but it really doesn't seem to be a big issue as far as moisture buildup inside the jacket. I am a Mountaintech and this jacket has become a favorite for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect back up weather protection This jacket gives me the extra confidence to head outdoors knowing I'll stay dry hiking during spring, summer, and fall. Superb packability means I don't think twice about bringing this jacket with me if there is any doubt in the weather forecast. I have a heavier (and totally awesome) Theta AR for the days I know for sure I'll need it for rain or snow or room for extra layers underneath, but the Beta SL is unparalleled when I'm packing for a day or overnight trip where space is a premium in my pack. It's also the jacket I carry in my running pack if I'm running to or from work where I know I might need it on the leg of the commute where I'm on or waiting for the bus. So versatile!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth every penny! This jacket is the most breathable, waterproof light shell I've ever owned! It's versatile in the sense that I can carry it with me every day for wind, rain or snow! The adjustable hood is a good form and not uncomfortable. That also includes the adjustable wrists, because you don't have to take your gloves off to change the velcro. I'm a GORE-TEX Mountain Tech and I've had gone through my share of shells over the years. Some folks might be turned away by the fact that this jacket does not have pit zips, but I can tell you from experience you won't be upset by it once you have it on! I've never felt irritated in wearing this jacket wishing it had an added feature because it truly is a great light weight shell! I can't say that about other shells I've owned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great everyday Jacket Absolutely in love with the Beta SL. Fits perfectly thru the waistline and is a little longer in the back to cover all the necessary things! Love that the hood is big and wide brimmed, wore it out when it was pouring rain with just a t-shirt underneath. Not a drop of rain whatsoever. Didn't even need an umbrella.. With Vancouver's' amount of rain per year, this is definitely a great piece. Lightweight and compactable but really protects from the elements! Can't say enough good things about the Beta SL!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the Beta SL I love this jacket. I get a lot of compliments on the looks of the jacket, which is a bonus. I love the way the hood fits; it has a bill on the hood that can be folded back for light rain or drizzle. I stay very dry. I also use this jacket as a windbreaker.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic! I purchased this jacket as a gift for my mother. She is a very conservative person, who enjoys daily walks in the woods. She is defintely not a fan of outdoor gears. This jacket is the ONLY piece of outdoor gear that she actually liked, and used on a daily basis. She said, "This jacket looks great, is super light, and really blocks out North Vancouver morning rains." My mother is 165cm tall and weighs 65kg. The Large fits perfect with room for one more layer.
