The Arc'teryx Theta AR is the most expensive jacket in this review with a price tag of $625.00, but it is also the most heavily featured. In many ways it is very similar to the Arc'teryx Beta AR, but has a much lower hem line that protects better against snow while skiing. The Theta also has an extra mid-back draw cord to snug up the empty space and includes a sleeve pocket and larger interior pocket. It has a GORE-TEX Pro membrane paired with a combination of 80 denier and 40 denier fabrics that make it like a bomb shelter when it comes to weather protection. If you want the single most durable jacket in this review, then look no further, but if you want something that is form fitting and designed to be light, then we recommend something like our Editors' Choice award winner Arc'teryx Alpha FL instead.
