tll3579668 wrote a question about Arc'teryx Gamma MX Softshell Pant - Men's on October 9, 2013
Gamma MX or Gamma SK? I ski in the Wasatch, about 25-30 days in the backcountry every year plus a Big Cottonwood season pass this year. My main focus would be a pant that works well for touring, but warm enough for some moderately cold resort skiing too. My go-to setup for the past several years has been a mid-weight capilene base layer with a 3 layer gore hard shell Arcteryx pant. This seems to work well for me on most typical Wasatch days. I must say, I am still skeptical about the lack of side zip vents in these new soft shells. So which to buy, MX or SK? Any recommendations? Windproof and breathable are probably the two most important qualities for me.
