Arc'teryx Men's Gamma MX Hoody
very pleased, lovely colour, extremley practical with a perfect fit
First of all thanks to staff at snow and rock Eastham......although I knew what item I wanted the colour was not available, however the staff were quick to show me a range of colours and let me try on same jacket in-store to make sure I had correct fit as they were ordering mine online......I ordered colour I was originally after and was told I would receive phone call when item arrived and was given a rough estimate for delivery time which proved correct........very pleased......in meantime I spent a while in store as layout was great and easy to find whatever I was after, although the discounted items were a bit confusing as to which was in sale and which was not....all in all though great experience, definitely be back again as may have just rekindled my love for outdoors!

Performance (and slimming!)
I selected this jacket having been ordered to retire my old yellow ski jacket on the grounds that it made me look like a 'fat traffic cop' when partnered by my lovely HMR helmet and visor.
I was slightly concerned about the warmth of the softshell as we were going to Courchevel in the last week of January and my base and mid layers were not really suited to extreme cold.
Despite the fact that it snowed heavily and there were several cold days the jacket performed well, providing just enough warmth on the coldest days and shedding heat readily when hot.
The very wet snow that came down fell and brushed off easily without leaving any residual dampness ...
... and apparently it looked great too!

Great fit and quality
Great shell. Quite fitted so not much room for mid layers unless you size up. Definitely recommend!

Be aware of the chests pockets
Excellent jacket like all Arc!teryx products, my only gripe is the chests pockets zips can and will hold water, and moister will get through to the base layer. The problem is the position of the pockets, the zip is a little bit inside the chest and rain can build up here.

excellent jacket if not a little expensive
excellent jacket. I'm more than happy about its build quality, style and performance. Only quibble I would have is the price but then again I did spend the money and not that disappointed about it

Great fit, exceptional performance & quality
Used or last 3 months is all weathers without issue. Fit and comfort exceptional. Technical perfomance in wind and rain - no issues. Flexibility of the material is more than adequate. The only minor issue is with the tight-fitting cuffs of the jacket. Hands have to be eased sloly through. Once on great fit with no over hang or loose material. Awesome jacket. Highly recommended.
