The new Beta LT jacket from the Arc'teryx Fall 13 range has arrived in selected nationwide stores early, being available from Mid-June.The new generation of GORE-TEX® Pro offers uncompromised durability of waterproofness with up to 32% improved breathability compared to the previous product generation. With a membrane that is more durable and extends the range of user comfort, Arc’teryx worked closely with W.L. Gore to test the technology and provide feedback during the development process.
For over 20 years Arc’teryx has worked exclusively with W.L. Gore as its fabric partner for waterproof/breathable fabrics. The value of this long-standing industry relationship is the opportunity to be involved in research and development at the onset, as well as setting the standards and pushing the boundaries for the quality expected.
While other companies may use new Pro in their products, Arc’teryx adopts the new technology into the depth of its Fall 2013 line because it matches values of durability, longevity and overall light weight that are at the core of every Arc’teryx design.
All in all, the Beta LT is the perfect all day, everday mountrainwear.
