For anyone who’s found their freestyle skiing tricks hampered by a duvet-like ski jacket, the new Beta FL from Canadian outdoors brand Arc’teryx could be the answer.
Though the FL stands for fast and light, the “active shell” fabric still offers tough protection against the elements; there’s 360° reflective striping, a low-profile storm hood and Gore-Tex’s new super-breathable waterproof fabric. If that doesn’t tempt you, the bright red colour should at least help the rescue team find you down a ravine. Because looking like you know what you’re doing is a minimum requirement.(£340, arcteryx.com)
