I bought this jacket to wear when hiking or just going around town. Its a nice thick softshell with a soft lining and is very comfortable to just throw on over a short sleeved shirt. I wore it on a hike last weekend when the temps were in the low 20s (although sunny and not windy) and it was perfect. I had a light long sleeve 1/4 zip underneath and the Gamma MX and I was a perfect temperature. This will be my go-to for hikes in the mountains. Previously, I would bring along a puff jacket that became too hot after about 5 minutes of fast hiking. This will breathe a bit better and provide some water resistance (although if it is gonna rain a lot, the hard shell will come out over this)
Fit is good. I always wish jackets were a bit longer as I hate when they ride up at all. this one doesnt ride up much unless you have the bottom elastic cords tightened. jacket looks great and the fleece inside is very soft to the touch. the exterior is nice and stretchy. This jacket replaced...
If I could I would return every other casual jacket I have ever purchased and just buy an extra one of these to leave in my go bag in my car in addition to the one in my jacket. As it stands I ordered a second one for the go bag and feel guilty about the unused jackets hanging in my closet.
I also purchased the version of this same jacket without the interior lining thinking that one would be better for warmer temperatures... I was wrong! This jacket does a beautiful job of equalizing my body temperature without causing me to ever get an uncomfortable sweat layer regardless of how hard I was sitting, walking, hiking, scrambling up inclines, and snowboarding in humid environments with wind, light-heavy rain, and sleet/snow from the high 20's to mid 80's, I haven't tried it yet in weather outside of that range.
Positives: I haven't found another jacket that kept me warm and dry, without causing an uncomfortable layer of sweat condensation when the activity...
Arcteryx Gamma MX jacket is amazing. The small fits with room for thick layers (I am 6 foot 170-175 average build). I just traded in my North Face shell for this and not regretting it at all. Very flexible fabric and does not ride up. Extra pockets are very nice and extremely useful! The price might seem high (HAHA it is Arcteryx it is gonna be costly) but I have never disliked or hated any of their gear. Use all their stuffs for my mountaineering adventures. Only small quirk I have with the jacket is that I wish the logo was stitched onto the breast pocket. But that is just nit picking. Wrist area is a bit tight as well but Rather have that then a huge draft going into the jacket. If you are thinking about buying one of these just pull the trigger, you will not regret it at all, upset I waited so long!
