I really rate the Anneal which i think they have discontinued and the Atlus for uk winter, i find if you are tall their 'longer' jackets are a bit of an odd length so prefer the shorter ones.

Anneal is a great jacket and belongs to the Made in Canada era of Veilance..

Interesting - I am a tall fukker. In conclusion I think I’m going to have to try them all on

Went to Covent Garden store at the weekend for a Proton jacket, only had hooded there but girl said Regent St had full stock of everything. Got to Regent St, again no Proton jackets and guy there said a fair bit of stuff was available though online store only. Puzzled Worth calling ahead to check stock if you're after specific items.

New Beta Long is decent.

Yeah I second the Arc Therme jacket, it is perfect winter coat. If anyone is thinking of picking up the longer and warmer Acr'teryx Thorson, you're better off with the Therme, Thorson is way too hot for UK winter but the length is great.

Picked up the new Beta LT, excellent jacket and fit. Pit zippers life savers lol

I was considering the beta sv as I thought the lt might be a bit flimsy? What’s the fit like?

Depends what you're after really. I actually went for the Beta LT over the Zeta SL as I felt the Zeta was flimsy ha. The Beta is a N40d 3L layer so it's probably more than sufficient for city use.

Fit is I think labelled trim, but I went true to size in a Medium and I can fit a tee and fleece underneath fine and didn't feel restrictive, was also good with a long sleeve tee and an Atom LT. Anything bulkier and you're probably better off with a size up.

General consensus in a few places is the Beta LT is more than suitable for vast majority for UK weather, SV is overkill. If you want tougher fabric, Beta AR is GoreTex Pro vs the Beta LT's 3L GoreTex.

Both LT and SV have Stormhood so easier to add a hooded mid layer underneath. That said, I wear an Atom AR hoody under my Beta AR and it's fine.

Face fabrics -
Beta LT - N40d
Beta AR - N40d with N80d in high wear areas
Beta SV - N80d
Alpha SV = N100d

LT will definitely feel flimsy compared to the SV. LT is quite a bit shorter than the SV.

On the topic of insulated jackets, my Veilance Insulated Shell is in season 10 of use now. I don't think it can be stopped. Best jacket I've ever worn.

Forgot to say, keep an eye on Snow and Rock for restock (unless you're after a S or XL), there's a 15% code (forgot what it was but it just came up on google search) that works on the Beta LT, takes it down to 297, I think that's what I paid.

Worth having a look on Arcteryx Talk fb group, few pics on there. Also decent place for buying / selling.
