    Made to move in the mountains.

    Whether you're trekking above treeline in late summer or climbing in the alpine during the fall, you'll want to be wearing the Arc'teryx Men's Gamma AR Softshell Pant. This three-season technical pant offers the stretch, abrasion-resistance, and weather protection you need for spring-through-fall alpine and climbing adventures. Being part of the AR family, the Gammas are designed to perform well in, and handle, all around conditions that you'll find up in the mountains.

    Burly Double Weave fabric is wind resistant while offering the breathability needed to stay cool and dry during intense ascents. The fabric is also highly abrasion-resistant to stand up to frequent brushes with rocks and bushes. A soft inner face offers a boost of warmth and is comfortable and soft against the skin. The stretch properties of the material won't hold you back as you high step to reach your next climbing hold.

    A trim fit and pocket placements comfortably accommodate climbing harnesses, and it even allows the pant to fit underneath a hardshell pant when conditions get harsh. These pockets also lay close to the body to prevent snagging and tears. The thigh pocket is laminated to offer more storage without seams to cause chafing. So you don't have to bring gaiters with you every time you go out, bootlace hooks at the adjustable cuffs keep snow and debris out of your shoes when you're walking up loose shale and scree to the base of your route.

    • Technical, three-season softshell pant for alpine and rock climbing
    • Fabric is stretchy, abrasion resistant, and wind resistant
    • DWR treatment to face fabric beads and repels light moisture
    • Brushed inner provides moderate warmth, is soft against the skin
    • Trim fit minimizes bulk and snagging on gear and brush
    • Adjustable cuffs have bootlace hook to eliminate need for gaiters
    • Gusseted crotch enhances mobility while hiking and climbing
    • Arc'teryx was founded by two climbers from North Vancouver
    • Item #ARC00KW

    Oh my, these are perfect!

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large / Tall
    • Height: 6'5"
    • Weight: 200lbs

    After trying on three different pairs of bulky, heavy outdoor/hiking pants, I decided I needed something slimmer, lighter, less baggy. That's when I discovered soft-shell pants, which led me to this pair from Arc'teryx. They're amazing! The fit is perfect, super comfortable and adjustable thanks to a slim waist belt you can tighten/loosen to get just the right waist dimensions. I also love how the large leg pocket is flat when empty and doesn't hang off your leg like cargo pants. Also, I'm 6 foot 4, so I ordered the Large / Tall option, and the inseam length is perfect. No alterations needed!

    I wear a size 34 in other ArcTeryx pants. However, I was unable to buckle and zip the pants up. I consider my size to be athletic but these pants felt like tights around my thighs. Length was perfect though. Didn't get to try them because i was unable to get them around my waist. Returned!

    Love these pants

    I currently own a pair of lighter weight hiking pants by Mammut, but after hiking and backing at 5000+ft in the PNW in the later season, I needed a pair that was a bit more durable and warmer. The Gamma AR pants are worth every penny. Quality stretch fabric and extremely durable. I recommend wearing these pants in 60 degree temps or colder as they are a bit too thick for warmer temps. They also include grommets that clip to your boot or shoe to keep the pant leg down. Nice little bonus.

    Phenomenal hiking/climbing pant

    I can't tout these enough. From a backpacker, day-hiker, climber and mountaineer these are, hands down, fantastic.

    Love them but don't fit

    I really like these pants but I can't get a size to fit me. Both the Medium and Large actually fit but...

    The mediums are crazy tight in the waist and perfect in the legs. The larges however are perfect in the waist and baggy in the legs! Kills me. I really wanted a pair of these but its a no go. The Gamma Rock in Large fit me perfect.

    my favorite purchase

    out of all the gear I've bought at backcountry, these softshell pants are the best. Lassen, Shasta, Rainier, Ecuador volcanoes, Tahoe winter hikes/snowshoeing - I never wear anything else. Great fit, awesomely comfortable, warm on ascents, wicks well on descents, useful thigh pocket, useful gaiter clip for hiking/snowshoeing on hardpack - just a perfect softshell mountaineering pant. Every duffel packed for a trip deserves a pair of these.

    Burly fabric; alright sizing

    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: Small-Regular

    • Weight: 138lbs

    After wearing these pants for 30-days straights in the East Alaska Range, I can definitely say I am a fan. The fabric is super burly, and withstood crampon strikes, really dense bushwhacking and just general intensive use. While they would be a little bit much for warm weather hiking, they are perfect for anything below 65 degrees Fahrenheit. The cut is flattering and practical, and the features are well thought out. I didn't find much use for the two hand pockets because I was wearing a harness, but the thigh pocket was awesome. Also, the gaiters/ankle cinch is really nice, though probably would not fit around anything thicker than a slim plastic boot (I used the Asolo AFS Evoluzione).

    The only negative I have is the sizing. These pants do run a tad long, which would not be a problem if the short version was easier to find in stock. I wasn't too bothered by it though.

    Overall, a bomber pant that I would definitely recommend.

    Super!!

    I brought these for mountaineering in the Cascades in the summer, spring, and winter. They breathed very well while I was snowshoeing at Lassen this weekend. I usually run very warm, but these were perfect, even with my hard-shells over. them. I left the park this morning after waking up to torrential downpours and these got considerably wet while I was in the car changing out of my winter boots into more comfortable driving footwear. They dried fast and made for a comfortable ride, too. They are not constricting, but wish the thigh was made a little larger. I think I can fix that with some more exercise, though. Can't wait to wear them again in a few weeks on my next trip!!

    Perfect

    I just got to use these pants a week ago temperatures ranged from about 43 F in the day down to 20F at night. They kept my legs warm without overheating wicked the moisture away when I did sweat. (Though my legs didn't sweat much) these were very comfortable and we're able to move every way my body did without restriction. They never got snagged on anything. And just all around felt very durable without costing any comfortability. Very impressed. I can't wait to wear these again out on the trail.

    Light weight and Durable

    Light weight and Durable

    Best Pants Ever!

    • Size Bought: S
    • Height: 5'6"
    • Weight: 118lbs

    Been using it for a week now and I gotta say it's one of the best hiking/climbing pants I own/ever tried. Great pants. Very durable and well constructed. The sizing is true.The regular inseam was slightly long for me.they are slightly big around the waist, but are easily tightened up with the built in belt.
    I am not complaining through so far they have impressed with their comfort and protection. The pant breath but keep you warm and feel good against the skin. I have yet to take them on a big trip though but on small hikes they have been great.
    Overall, i like the pant. it has a good desigh, light quality, the fabric is not too thick. Everything is my want except the length of legs.

    Excellent pants

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    These pants are excellent. Perfect on a late winter hike up Old Rag Mountain in SNP: protected my legs during rock scrambles, blocked wind and chiil on the summit, but didn?t overheat once the late morning sun warmed things up heading back down. Hooks at leg openings were ideal to keep snow and rocks from getting in my boots. Used them a fair amount around the neighborhood during our seemingly endless winter in MD. Slight lining provided the right amount of warmth/protection from wind & cold while watching the kids sled but didn?t get my legs too warm while shoveling. Will be psyched to get them out more next winter. Pricey, but like all Arcteryx stuff solidly built to last.

    I love pants.

    I love pants and these are some of the best pants I've ever put on.

    Thick enough to resist all but the worst catclaw and underbrush you may encounter bushwacking or hiking. Breathable enough to shed some of that moisture on your approach. Warm enough for early winter ascents up mountains. Comfortable enough to rock for long days outside or running errands. Built in belt is awesome.

    My only con is the gaiter style boot clip to keep the pant down catches on your shoelaces when you don't need it to (90% of the time I wear them)

    I typically wear a Large in almost everything but I checked the size chart and I am a medium in these!

    Awesome pant

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size

    I was a little worried about the waist size but I just exchange from XL Regular to L Small and that was the perfect desition. Definitely I recommend this pant to be use in any season. I did my first ascent with them in NH in winter with 2 fahrenheit degrees and works perfect. A lot of snow and many fallen but the pants still fine.

    Awesome  pant

    EPIC Pant

    Just got back from a 6 day expedition on Rainier. What are you waiting for? Buy. These. Pants. The Gamma AR's are my favorite piece of gear that I own. I lived in these things for the better part of 8 days straight and they held up exceptionally. Totally warm at 14,000+ feet at 5am in strong winds and breathable in 75 sun on the lower mountain when your getting absolutely cooked by sun coming off the glacier. I'm a 32/33 waist and the medium fit perfect. The pant has a super athletic cut so they'll likely fit you great. Low profile, amazingly flexible breathable fabric. I'll be using these extensively in the White's over the next 6 months. I recommend these pants to anyone doing multi-day or even single day hiking or mountaineering. The perfect companion for your peak bagging adventures!

    EPIC Pant

    Great Hiking Pant

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    i am 6' 210lbs with a 34 waist and the L/Reg is a good fit. could be a little tighter. i tried the medium and the legs fit better but the waist was too tight.



    i am a photographer and use these pants as my main hiking and excursion pant. i was out late at night at the beach and was taking some longer star images and wandered the beach and ended up walking into deep pools. the pants got soaked up to my calf but never absorbed any water. the DWR is great! the stretch on the fabric is also amazing. i have full range of movement and have never been in a spot that i thought the pants were restricting me.



    the only downside is the pants are a bit noisy. could be that they are new.

    Great pant

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: True to size

    These are a great pant, they are made for colder weather and not casual wear. They are heavier than the LT's and made to last a lifetime. I needed something lighter and will return for the LT's.
