The Arc'teryx Men's Gamma SL Hybrid Hoody is a stretch softshell for rock climbing. The Gamma SL Hybrid incorporates spandex into the fabrics so you can move easily up the mountain. The wind-resistant jacket features a durable water repellent finish for water resistance, preventing a light rain from soaking in. The combination of two softshell fabrics allow your body to breathe while the high-wear areas are reinforced for durability. The gusseted underarms allow you to reach up towards the next hand hold without restriction and a drawcord hem prevents updrafts. When the wind begins kicking a wet spray into your face, pull the StormHood closer in with drawcords and let the laminated brim deflect droplets. The athletic fit allows a layer to be pulled on over top when the weather moves from annoying to raging.

ARC'TERYX ATHLETIC FIT: The Arc'teryx Athletic Fit garments are considered their "standard" fit and feature complex patterns that utilize anatomical shaping and gussets to enhance motion and eliminate any excess bulk. Athletic fit styles are trimmer than Arc'teryx relaxed fit styles, but still offer room for a base layer, a light fleece mid-layer, and a synthetic or down filled mid-layer. Put simply, their Athletic Fit should fit true to size, but be sure to check out the size guide to learn how to calculate your body measurements before selecting a size.

Gamma SL, the name says it all.Very functional light soft-shell jacket. The only thing is that I wish they had more and solid colors but function wise, almost perfect jacket with no complains in that department. The price is a little high but if you manage to get it on sale like I did well under $200, it is worth it.
This is my second Arcteryx jacket & I plan to purchase a fleece. The quality is excellent & I love it. I can throw it on over my layers & I stay dry in most rain storms. I also use it as a windbreaker. My only problem with it is it gets lost alot, ie... my girlfriend takes it. So guess what she gets for her birthday. The super helpful & knowledgeable staff person recommend this jacket & I'm glad he did. Thanks Guys
