The Arc'teryx Men's Gamma MX Jacket is, in my incredibly biased opinion, one of the best soft shells on the market. My bias comes from the fact that everything Arc'teryx puts out is of the highest quality and from my few years owning a Gamma MX jacket. This versatile soft shell mid-layer utilizes Arc'teryx's Fortius 2.0 fabric to achieve the perfect balance of mobility, style and elemental protection. I bought it for the style; the fact that it sheds rain, blocks wind and is super warm are just bonuses (bonuses that come in handy in inclement weather). Whatever your needs, this jacket will suit them.

DWR tech

Durable Water Repellant
DWR (Durable Water Repellent) is a coating that is applied to fabrics which makes them water-resistant, or hydrophobic. A DWR finish doesn't interfere with breathability, which makes it perfect for adverse conditions in the backcountry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it I was initially scared by the price tag but this jacket is one of the few pieces of clothing I've never regretted buying.,,,,The arms can be a bit long. The "elastic" isn't as stretchy as it should be. But otherwise it's fantastic. Comfortable fleece microlining. Decently water resistant shell material. Two chest pockets where most jackets only give you two. That weird upper left arm pocket (presumably for ski passes) that literally never gets used.,,,,Buy it. You won't regret it. I've had mine for years and it still looks brand new.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Looks great... but that's all. I can't understand how this was rated so well. I expected a $300 jacket to provide at least *some* warmth. The Gamma MX failed at that. Hard. It's only good for temps 55F and up. I tried it out initially on a 45F day and the cold soaked through immediately like it was a long sleeve t-shirt and not a fleece lined jacket. The next day was the same temp plus a medium wind. I added a PolarTec fleece under it to see if that would help. It didn't. I only looked puffy. Wind pushes the warmth out even faster. Forget about using the pockets to keep your fingers warm. The pockets (except the arm) are mesh inside and will act like a vent purging any warmth from inside. The sleeves are a bit too long and the stretch cuffs are a tad too narrow so taking the thing on and off is awkward when it comes to getting your hands through. It does look good, allows great range of motion and sheds sprinkles easily. I will be sending it back for a refund though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best soft shell out there. I am a big fan of softshells due to their breathability and this is the highest quality softshell in existence. The seams, zippers, construction, and fabric is all cearly top notch and it couldnt' fit any better. It looks tailored and professional regardless of if you are a dirtbag or not. The gamma is excellent and while most of my other gear has a place and climate of use, this is the jacket that spans them all and is the most versatile.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastarastic Jacket It's truly not often finding both a service friendly jacket and a good looking garment. First spending over $300 clams w/tax was kind of hard for a jacket even though I had the cash on hand to do so. I found it feels a lot like fleece both inside and out but the serviceability is nothing like fleece or even the look is not like a cheap fleece coat its just really soft like fleece is about it. It is somewhat wind stoppable, I say somewhat because it doesn't stop the wind like say Gore-Tex but its not real far away from it. My recommendation is Heck yes you should give it a try like I did and it sold me the first day of wearing it on a 32 degree day with nothing more than a light #150 of Ice Breaker which is quit comfortable combo. No I work for neither Moosejaw or Arcteryx this is a real review oh and "Yes" this is a word in the Urban Dictionary...Fantastarastic

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome jacket This is a great jacket, wind resistant, somewhat water resistant too,(big plus). I wear it climbing and snowshoeing,contoured for your elbows, no restriction. Wear it with a midweight baselayer, (Smartwool, Icebreaker or Arcteryx). Pockets are easy to get into one handed too. Nice lining too, kinda like fleece. I throw a hard shell on when I stop or a puffy coat. BUY ONE YOU WON"T BE DISAPPOINTED!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All purpose coat! I now have this coat in blue and green. This is my favorite Arctryx jacket. I have about 10 other types but this jacket is good for just about anything. It flexes very well. I can use it for tennis when the weather in in the 40's. It breathes well so it's great for running, etc.. Multiple pockets come in handy. Can't say enough great things about it. Great fit as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile I was looking for a black hoodless softshell that could easily transition from trail to town, with multiple pockets that can double as ventilation (the 2 chest pockets and 2 hand pockets are mesh lined and double as vents if needed). For travel, the chest pockets are large enough to fit a passport wallet.,,,,It's lightweight. Folded and rolled-up tightly, it packs down to about the size of a 1.5L water bottle.,,,,The collar stays up or can be folded down (and stays down). Neck opening is wide. Good in warm climate. Bad in cold winds, but comfy for scarf wear.,,,,I just wish the left arm pocket was a matching black rather than the dark gray, but that's a minor aesthetic detail. I also would have liked an embroidered bird rather than the reflective logo (like my Alpha SL hardshell).,,,,The sleeve cuffs are on the tight side.,,,,M fits perfectly--I'm 6'1, 160lb. Sleeves are long enough. The athletic shape is reminiscent of tailored suit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best softshell I have come across I upgraded to this from my old Marmot Gravity softshell. All I can say is, wow! I thought my old one was good, but this thing is pretty amazing! It is everything that you would expect from Arc'teryx. The fit is fantastic. I am pretty skinny and it is hard for me to find jackets that fit well, but this one is absolutely spot on. Definitely designed for an athletic build. My only gripes with this jacket are that the neck is a little wide for everyday use, but it does fold down nicely into a collar. The sleeves also don't have any Velcro, which can make them hard to get over a watch, but one you do, they fit really nicely. The shell fabric is top notch. Stretchy to allow for movement, but with a really nice hand, and quite breathable. The DWR works really well too; sheds light rain quite well. The fleece lining is pretty thin, but it is the perfect weight for 4-season wear in California. Just as versatile in the city as in the woods. Pricey, but you definitely get what you pay for!
