Gamma MX Hoody

Move freely in mixed weather conditions while you're wearing the Arc'teryx Gamma MX Hoody. Articulated arms and a trim fit keep this midweight layer close to the body without restricting movement whether you're alpine climbing or sliding up a skin track deep in the mountains. More versatile than your baselayer and more breathable than your storm shell, this jacket will be the one you live in the most, even if there's a little light precip falling from the dark clouds above.

  • A versatile softshell jacket for alpine sports in mixed conditions
  • Stretch face fabric defends against wind, rain, and abrasions
  • Fleece lining insulates for warmth, dries quickly, wicks moisture
  • DWR coating sheds light precipitation if you encounter weather
  • Gusseted underarm construction allows for full range of motion
  • e3D patterning brings an additional level of articulation to the fit
  • Long torso length offers additional rear coverage while active
  • Storm hood easily stretches over a ski or alpine climbing helmet

The One Jacket To Rule Them All!!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Medium

This is not only the best climbing jacket I have used, but i can safely say it is the best all-around jacket on the market right now.

While climbing in Idaho this fall my partner and I were hit with unpredictable low temps, wind. and rain and I was so grateful to have this jacket on my back not only on the wall but also around the morning fire! When the cloud cover moved in the low temps and wind would normally make climbing on the cold granite a nightmare, but in the act of climbing and belaying between pitches I felt protected from the wind/rain and was much warmer than I expected. The jacket has awesome compatibility with helmet and harness, and the flexible material of the softshell I never restricted my movement.. Best of all when it was cold in the morning and the wind was blowing unrelentingly I layered it over my down! (pictured below) Not only does it protect well it looks good too!

I will be climbing in the MX all fall through rain and wind and snow, but I won't pack it away for the winter. This jacket is an amazing option for in and out of bounds skiing and snowboarding. With its protection from the elements, comfort, and warmth it is an amazing mid to outer layer option.

If you are looking for one jacket that does it all each and every season of the year, that looks good and keeps you outside doing what you love. Then go with the Arc'teryx MX Gamma.

The One Jacket To Rule Them All!!

A phenomenal all-around jacket

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Medium

This jacket was awesome. I love the Arc'teryx brand as a whole because their quality is so good. When looking at this jacket, I wondered if the pricepoint would be worth the quality that I got and the answer was absolutely yes. It can be really tricky to find a jacket that will do everything for you. I would definitely say this jacket fits the bill. It was heavy enough that I was able to wear it when the temperature got to freezing, I was still perfectly warm, and it was light enough that I could wear it at 60 degrees earlier that night and into the next morning without sweating to death.
I have a fairly athletic build and this jacket fit me absolutely perfect. It looked better than any other jacket I've used in my life because of that. I did't feel like the fit was restricting for movement either which can sometimes happen when you get into those slimmer fits. The hood is great. I could have actually even worn it while biking in the very cold weather and it would have fit over my helmet. I could also wear this on a lighter skiing day without worry of getting too cold.

If you're looking for a quality jacket you can wear every day with any outfit, this jacket will absolutely fit the ticket for you. And because it is such great quality, you can count on it lasting you through the ups and downs you might put it through.

Awesome shell for snowboarding!

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

This was a great jacket to take out on a ski weekend! Perfectly suited to layering underneath and great at keeping the elements and wind out! I loved all the convenient pockets and the chest pocket perfectly held a ski pass. Great quality from Arc'teryx as always!

Arc'teryx at it again!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Medium

Arc'teryx makes quality products that perform incredibly well and this jacket is no exception! It's a great lightweight softshell perfect for taking touring! Its breathable enough so you're not going to be losing more sweat than you should be, but still wind and water resistant! Applause to you Arc'teryx!

I got this in a medium because Arc'teryx's stuff tends to run small in the torso, but have longer sleeves. The medium still gave me some room to grow, so a small would have fit me perfectly.

Style and Substance

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Medium

One of the toastiest jackets I have had the pleasure of wearing, My friend Marie wore this for 2 winter weeks straight I'm fairly sure.
An excellent softshell with killer style and thoughtful design. Pockets, lining, vents, and punching above its weight at 1.3 pounds. The fit is more athletic like all Arc'teryx gear so be aware of that.
I'm giving it 4 stars for two reasons: $350 is quite an investment, even for a softshell as ingenious as this one. It's not quite warm enough for more frigid days and not quite breathable enough for serious activity. It can be dressed up or down of course!

Comfortable and Breathable

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Large

I took this jacket out on a demo for a couple weeks and really liked having it. I'm not normally a softshell kind of guy in the winter, but this held up nicely. The internal material is nice and soft. The outer shell doesn't make a bunch of noise when walking around. I never did get to take this out touring or skiing in the resort, but with my initial impressions on the jacket, I would definitely use this skiing and would perform really well in a drier climate.
Just know, like most skiing jackets, the arms are a little long. The jacket has a very athletic fit. Look at the chest dimensions on the sizing chart for sizing assistance.

Took to Portland and it was perfect

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Medium

I used this jacket on a trip i took to Portland for a wedding actually. Not your typical adventure but it was perfect nonetheless. I needed something that looked nice, kept me dry and warm. I loved having this jacket as i toured around rainy Portland. The hood was probably the best part! I have a pretty big beard and this hood covered my entire head, hat and fit my beard in it without squishing it or getting it caught in any zippers! The struggle is real. The water proofing was also incredible and kept me super dry as we walked though a few of Portland's amazing parks and hung out downtown. The only thing i didn't account for was the mesh lining in the pockets. When the pockets are opened, even with your hands in them, the air would get through very easily making it a little tough to stay warm. But that's my only complaint and I'm sure that feature would be amazing while hiking, touring or any other cardio activity where you body temperature fluctuates regularly.

Awesome!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small

I love this coat, the fit is is a little snug for my liking. if your going out in the cold in this better have good base layering going on, it would be a great mid layer itself. It killed it in the wind and the rain for me. Very dry, and blocked out the wind great!

the softshell every one needs

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: XL

You are abandoned on a rainy island and get to have one thing....here you go.
The Gamma MX hoody is breathable, wind resistant, and warm with a slight fleece lining inside. MX stands for mixed weather so you can guarantee it will handle all the conditions. I will be honest, I am not a softshell guy but this is just too hard to pass up once you try it on. Highly durable, and abrasion resistant while also not being a straight jacket like you find alot of softshells to be. The stretch capability allows your to be at your most mobile form or just out on the town in comfort.

*edit* - this has fleece lining in the hand pockets as well and they are very spacious along with the chest pockets making it the ultimate layering option that you can store things in.

Best Mid Weight Shotshell

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Medium

I've been beating on this for a number of years now. This is a go to for ski touring or warmer days at the resort and climbing. It also looks great around town. It works well with a light mid-layer and functions well itself as a mid-layer on variable days that turn cold.

The patterning that Arc'teryx built into this is incredible. The shoulders are well cut for climbers and allow you to lift your arms without having your jacket pull way up to your mid-drift. Helmet compatibility is also top notch for both ski and climbing helmets. For a shoftshell jacket without Windstopper I'm always impressed by how much wind it keeps out and how well the fabric breathes.

If you want top notch fit and fabric, you'll get it here.

Great jacket

    Best softshell jacket I have ever bought although it is expensive.

    a little dispointed

      this one is made in vietnam, a little different from the one made in china, the not hoodied version i bought. the brand at the front chest is more shinny for the latter. their materials showed in the tag are different too.
      the collar is too wide to block strong wind, but the not hoodied one can.

      Go To Alpine Softshell Jacket

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Medium

      Gamma MX is critical piece in my alpine layering system. It's versatility is amazing as it accommodates a wide range of conditions. The hood, main zipper and vented pockets are all key to it's capability. With the hatches battened down, this jacket is as warm as a UL puffy. Fully open, it has excellent breath-ability. Of course, it can be fine tuned across that range.
      Fit is athletic. Easily accepts base layer and mid-weight insulation layer (eg R1) with full freedom of movement. My belay jacket and hardshell are sized to on top of it.
      After 4 seasons, it still looks great! The exterior fabric is very durable and has not started to show signs of wear.

      Perfect soft shell

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Xxl

      Love this thing. Wear it all the time. The only downsides I have are the sleeves are a bit long and it marks easily, but the marks also go away easily.

      Worth the money

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: XL

      I was hesitant to buy such an expensive jacket. I had heard great things about Arc'teryx, but it took me a long time to convince myself to buy such an expensive jacket. I wish I wouldn't have waited so long. This is the jacket of my dreams. It breathes, protects, keeps you warm, and allows great maneuverability. Beware of it's athletic fit. For someone as tall as I am, it comes a little bit short, but still fits me better than mostly anything I wear.

      I use this jacket for touring, mountain biking, hiking, casual days, and just about anything that requires me to wear a jacket. I would recommend this to anyone.

      Blackbird Colorway

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Large

      So just a comment about my favorite softshell's color...
      Blackbird is the most beautiful black. All other black garments i have look pale and washed-out compared to the deeply saturated, extra-dark Blackbird color. The best black fabric i have ever seen...

      Update: Another cool thing (no pun intended) is that this Blackbird color doesn't seem to be as susceptible to solar-gain as other black jackets i have had (which is pretty much all of them - i'm a big fan of black clothing), kinda like ColdBlack... I appreciate this a great deal, since solar gain can cause temperature flux, leaving you too hot when in direct sunlight and then cold and clammy when in the shade. So it takes one more variable out of a cold-weather clothing system, which is rad.

      Stylish fit and great performance

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Large

      Pros- stylish cut, good in light rain, blocks wind, big hood, staple layer -meaning this jacket won't live in my closet
      It's either in my pack or I'm wearing it.
      Cons- Not really anything to complain about. I can agree with other reviewers about breathability. It's not great to wear while skinning. This is the layer you put on after skinning. I am looking at the OR Ferosi for skinning.

      I want the Ferossi bad - Check out the Summit version, made of freaking Cordura! Peace.

      Perfect jacket!!!!!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: XXL

      Perfect jacket!
      I love this jacket, it's anti-wind, it's small to medium rain, warm.
      In my city, winter is enough.

      Winter Do All

      • Size Bought: Large

      I wear this jacket in every condition during winter. This jacket is perfectly suited for climbing and skiing. I am 6'1 195lbs and the Large fits me perfectly. Arms up, down, twisting around, this jacket keeps you covered. The hood also moves with your helmet when you use the cinch, eliminating blind spots.

      I like what you said about eliminating blind spots. Incidentally this also works with just a hat on underneath - if you cinch the halo cord the hood moves with your head, which i appreciate while doing anything, even while driving, to check to see if the coast is clear before switching lanes or whatnot. It sucks when you look over your shoulder and all you see is the inside of your hood :-( I never have that problem with any of my Arc'teryx hoodys...
