Gamma MX Hoody
I bought this piece for backcountry skiing and alpine climbing. The goal was to have a piece that cut the wind and still breathed well enough to allow for comfortable uphill travel. This hoody makes the grade. It is always a compromise when trying to balance these two competing goals, but the Gamma MX does it as well as anything I have ever used. It certainly makes more sense to wear this kind of garment when working hard on the uphill than to wear gore-tex or similiar fabric. The attention to detail, styling, and quality of construction is typical Arcteryx (flawless) so I'm pretty happy.

Destined to be a favorite
More times than not I find myself needing a hood. It's always my luck to head out on a hike, climb, or quick grocery run and face wind, rain, or snow. The Gamma MX hoody is proving to be a great replacement for both my Gamma AR and Hyllus jackets. This is a lighter weight than I expected but insulation seems good so far. It's easy enough to add a light mid-layer on burlier days. It could easily work as a mid-layer under a shell for warmer sessions. The flexibility should prove itself over time. My only disappointment is the location of manufacture but it is what it is. Stitching is even and panels are aligned, unlike my experience with previous non-Canadian Arc'Teryx gear. In fact, his is in my first non-Canada-made piece out of about a dozen shells, softshells, fleece, and sweaters. Despite this, I still see the Gamma MX becoming my go-to softshell for most occasions. It's a winner and one I can easily recommend.

Soft Like A Baby's Butt
We use the Gamma MX Hoody on warmer days throughout the winter for cross country skiing, and snow shoeing. Used a lot for all season hiking, biking, and rowing. This multiple use hoody earns its worth in spite of the extra cost. This hoody is not a radiator but will help to retain body heat if you keep moving through the elements. If you stop for very long you might consider layering up with something over and/or under. This hoody really packs small. The Gamma MX Hoody will help keep you outside even if the wind and rain are threatening. If the elements are to extreme consider wearing something else with it. Arc Teryx picked a winner with the soft/stretchy fabric. I wear mine around the house during the winter rather than turning up the thermostat. The big hood requires some adjustment depending on what you are using it for. I like wearing the hood off my head and flat on my back in good weather or closed up around my face to keep the nasty weather out. Fashion statement from a friend: "That is one sweet hoody!"

Great BC skiing jacket for Sierras
I got the 2009 version of this jacket as an outer layer for travelling while BC skiing in the Sierras. So far so good - works great as an outer layer for travelling with a Capilene 1 t-shirt and a Capilene 4 shirt underneath. I can also comfortably wear a Marmot windshirt underneath too, which I've found to be a really versatile layering system for travelling. Then all you need is a hooded synthetic parka for breaks and hanging out. The pockets and hood are great too - stretchy and roomy; the hood especially so - plenty of room for a thick beanie or helmet whilst maintaining plenty neck motion and visibility. It's not as water resistant as I would have liked, but certainly as expected. The reality is that when it's not too cold and it's snowing, I take the GoreTex anyway. My only minor complaint so far is that the stitching around the back of the neck isn't as stretchy as it should be, and so the outer thread snapped in a few places as I was putting it on in a hurry. That said, the seam is still solid, so no bother.
