Arc'teryx Men's Gamma MX Hoody
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!

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

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.

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.

Great all round jacket for cool windy days at the crag or on the mountain.
Tough, wind proof and a great fit.. Everything I want from a wind proof jacket
