I have last year's model of the Gamma MX, but it's the same other than the color selection, which is a bit drab for 2013 in my opinion. 2012's models were much more vibrant, but maybe that is not your thing. Colors aside, the Gamma MX is my go to jacket. It's lightweight and since the articulation in the joints is so fantastic, it really doesn't feel like you're wearing anything. You have to wear one to believe it. I know that Arcteryx is very expensive, but it is money well spent. These jackets are bomb proof and will last for years. The fit is perfect. I'm 5"6' and got a small like I do in all Arcteryx gear, and it fits just right. The sleeve length is perfect, which is hard to find sometimes for me as is the overall length. I cannot recommend this jacket enough if you can afford it. If you can't right now, save up and buy it on Moosejaw's Cybermonday sale next year where you'll get 5x rewards points, which could give you over 20000 points, so it's kind of like 2 for one.
