I wear my everyday here, the temperatures are around 45-50 and this is just great as a everyday or hiking jacket.
Love it so far.
Bought this on a whim for a late season ski trip to Alta two weeks ago. Forecasts were for warm temps. Luckily we go some snow, but went backcountry skiing three times during the week and I almost never had to take this jacket off the whole day. Just a lightweight wool base layer underneath. Temps in the hi twenties to low thirties. Would put my puffy vest on over it at transitions and stay warm enough. It was very breathable when necessary. Fit a

At what temperature will this jacket keep...
At what temperature will this jacket keep you warm while stationary, and also hiking?
SL in the Arc'teryx naming scheme means superlight, and the gamma jackets are designed for abrasion resistance and light weather resistance while remaining really breathable. To answer your question though, i'd say it really depends on you personally. For instance, I tend to run warm. This jacket would probably keep me warm in lower temperatures than some other people. That being said, its a super light, breathable, uninsulated jacket. I think for most people to keep warm in this jacket, they are going to have to be moving if its cold out.
It's a pretty thin jacket, and people vary, but I'd say low 50s standing still and high 30s/low 40s hiking, depending how hard you're working.
