Brandon,

You seem very familiar with Arc'teryx products. Maybe you can answer my question. I recieved this Delta lt jacket and the cuffs are fairly loose (not much smaller than the arm itself). The cuff rests loosley on the top of my hand unlike my my Delta AR which is much snugger. Can you assure me this is the way the cuffs are supposed to fit? Thanks for your input.

Ok. So here's the deal. I have owned a Gamma MX for several years now (I have owned three). I was skeptical when Arc'teryx decided to revamp their classic softshell. I decided to try it out and I never thought they could improve this jacket, but I was wrong. Every feature they changed for this jacket made it better. It is a half inch longer in the body, which makes it a much better fit. The old rubber/plastic wind flap of the old version always rubbed on my neck and they replaced the upper portion of the wind flap with a soft fleece backed fabric (perfect). The cuffs of the past version tended to stretch and not regain their elasticity. Now the cuffs are made of a more stretchy fabric and retain their retention. I really like the new waist drawcord of the new version as well. Instead of adjusting them in the front pockets, which requires taking off your gloves, they are now in the typical place on the sides where you can reach and adjust with gloves on. The attention to detail and quality of this jacket is as good as ever. This is definitely an upgrade from the previous version.

I have been skeptical of MH for the past couple years and had turned to other brands, but decided to try this jacket out because I had heard so many good things about it and it's predecessor, the Torch. I am very impressed with the fit of this piece. I have a climber build and am 6'O" and am borderline between medium and large in most brands. Since I have a thin build, large is usually huge in the chest and mediums are too short in the torso. I actually held off from buying MH's Torch jacket because it was cut too short. At 29" in length the medium is a great fit and is snug throughout the body with enough room for a base layer. As this will be a skiing and climbing jacket, I don't expect needing any more room for layering. The sleeve length is generously cut. The elastic thumb holes will come in handy when active and tuck neatly up the sleave when wearing around town. I have ran in the jacket and really appreciated the pit zips to cool down. Overall, I am very impressed with the jacket so far and am looking forward to using it for its purpose on a climb very soon.

I have had my Gamma MX for over a year now and have worn it almost everyday since I have got it. It takes a beating and has worn very nicely. It packs very small and holds the weather off short of a deluge. I have several other softshells and they collect dust in my closet. I also own other Arc'Teryx products and this one gets the most use by far.
