The Arc'teryx Gamma MX Hoody, available in both men's and women's designs, is a breathable, water-resistant softshell jacket with hood. The inner fleece lining adds an extra layer of warmth, while the jacket's overall design is minimalist and allows for the greatest range of movement possible during active pursuits. The hood is helmet-compatible and able to be pulled up comfortably over most climbing helmets. It has a drop back hem that helps keep the cold out while arms are raised and offers the added protection of laminated zipper seams.
The Gamma MX Hoody is very flexible, complimenting the tailored lines that provide a sleek fit. You do not have to worry about snagging tools or the jacket's girth getting in the way of what you need to do. It moves with you. Even with the hood over your helmet, the fit remains comfortable.
If you need extra warmth, the Gamma MX Hoody, while toasty, does not replace your belay jacket. It is more of a piece to wear during warmer or active pursuits than during stationary activities (like belaying) in colder temperatures.
A versatile and cozy softshell jacket that rises to the occasion in colder temperatures for active pursuits. Superior construction and all-around smart, technical manufacturing justify the Arc'teryx price tag.
