Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
This is not only the best climbing jacket I have used, but i can safely say it is the best all-around jacket on the market right now.
While climbing in Idaho this fall my partner and I were hit with unpredictable low temps, wind. and rain and I was so grateful to have this jacket on my back not only on the wall but also around the morning fire! When the cloud cover moved in the low temps and wind would normally make climbing on the cold granite a nightmare, but in the act of climbing and belaying between pitches I felt protected from the wind/rain and was much warmer than I expected. The jacket has awesome compatibility with helmet and harness, and the flexible material of the softshell I never restricted my movement.. Best of all when it was cold in the morning and the wind was blowing unrelentingly I layered it over my down! (pictured below) Not only does it protect well it looks good too!
I will be climbing in the MX all fall through rain and wind and snow, but I won't pack it away for the winter. This jacket is an amazing option for in and out of bounds skiing and snowboarding. With its protection from the elements, comfort, and warmth it is an amazing mid to outer layer option.
If you are looking for one jacket that does it all each and every season of the year, that looks good and keeps you outside doing what you love. Then go with the Arc'teryx MX Gamma.
