Whether you're tackling the Maroon Bells, ice climbing Kennedy's Gully, or chasing deep powder in the backcountry, the great breathability and weather resistance of the Arcteryx Men's Gamma LT Jacket make it the perfect partner for any cool weather activity. This lightweight soft shell jacket is made with soft, easy wearing fabric that makes it a great go-to jacket for the mountains as well as around town. From the trail head to campus, the Gamma LT sheds light precipitation and delivers enough insulation to keep the bite of the weather away.

The extremely durable and dense stretch woven fabric resists abrasion from ice and rock, and it moves with your body as you reach and stretch. Break trail to the ridge, commute to work and walk the dog; the Arcteryx Gamma LT for men can do it all.

nice jacket
January 03, 2011

great quality; not terribly warm; the green color is almost an olive/mustard color (not the nicest, in my opinion)

Great Lightweight Softshell
April 07, 2011

This is a great jacket. It's an unlined softshell with good construction. The fit is slim, but not as slim as some other AT products I've purchased. It's a great 3 season jacket for everything from casual to technical use.

Great for play or the mex restaurant up the street
April 20, 2011

This is a terrific jacket. Sometimes I feel a little guilty for spending a substantial sum when I could get something for quite a bit less. But not for this jacket. It's lightweight, warm and the fit is exactly what I wanted (close but not suffocating). Great for the Y, running outside or just going to the mexican place up the street. Plus Arcteryx is the premier brand in outdoor clothing. You can't go wrong here.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance

Great Jacket
May 09, 2011

The design and construction of this jacket is so perfect it is almost unreal. This windproof, but unbelievably breathable fabric is versatile enough to be worn during evenings in the summer, and on the slopes during the winter. A massive temperature range is testament to how ingenious this jacket is. I also have the hooded version which is just even better!

Nice jacket.
February 13, 2011

This jacket is perfect for the South. An unlined Arcteryx softshell is a great idea, and there are not many of them. Comfort range is from 60 down to about 40, or lower with an extra layer. That makes it work for February to May, or October to December. It is breathable yet warm. Works well to cut wind and light rain. The jacket is very well made and fits well. The sleeves are on the long side but that helps with activities like climbing, belaying, and cycling. The LT also has mesh pockets, which allow you to open the zippers and vent the jacket without opening the main zipper. Finally, the jacket has a zipper pocket on the left sleeve. Never had one of these before, but I can see how it would be perfect for a radio during climbing or backpacking. No chest pocket. Stand up collar with fleece liner. One thing that seems a little awkward at first is the long cut rear tail of the jacket. I can see the vision, for cycling maybe, but I am not sure it makes much difference otherwise. When you think of the jacket as shorter in the front for a harness, it makes more sense. I have not missed the long tail on my fleece-lined Gamma jacket. I bought an XL. I wear a 46 or 48 suit jacket and a 17.5 x 35 shirt. It fits perfectly and I can layer a sweater or vest under it. A Large would be pretty trim I think.

Lightweight, comfortable, snug fit (5'10", 165 lb, Medium is perfect). The fabric seems really durable, but I've only had it a week, and am pretty hard on gear, so we'll see. I'm new to Arcteryx, but very impressed so far. The LT seems kind of like a really nice shirt -- I don't think it'd keep you warm in the winter unless you were running uphill, but that is what I got it for. I used it as a second layer under a thicker softshell and a hard shell when I went night-boarding and it was great for that, but mostly this seems like a high-output shell. I haven't used it in rain or snow yet, but my baby has spit up on the shoulder three times -- wipes right off with no visual residue or smell. I LOVE the high pocket placement -- strap on the belt of a backpack and there's no need to worry about crushing whatever you stashed there. I think this is going to become my active-wear garment of choice for a long time to come.

Great active jacket
October 21, 2012

I ordered the Gamma LT because the weather is cooling here in AFG and I needed something during outside exercise. I am 6' and 240 and ordered an XL. It fits great, especially for wider shoulders. Even is I were in the 200-225 range, I believe I would still go with an XL. Smaller frames adjust accordingly. The jacket does what I want it to do. It is lightweight, moves freely and breathes well. I have been very pleased with the majority of the Arc'teryx clothing I have bought and this is no exception.

Pros: Build quality, Performance

Great jacket
October 17, 2011

I got this jacket as a gift. This is quite an upgrade from the North Face windwall which i had for 3 years. This is very easy to wear and perfect for hiking and running. the size is also not tricky, i am 160 lb and 5'11'' and M fits me very well. given the high performance of this jacket, i would definitely recommend it to my friends.

from Oregon

great all-around
September 15, 2011

I love this coat. Its very light and layers like a charm. The jacket is warm in chilly conditions, but I haven't had a chance to test it in inclement weather. The shoulders are roomy but the sleeves are long and I have to fold them. However, I love the freedom of movement and the technology. i feel bombproof.

great lightweight jacket
August 26, 2009

Overall it is exactly what I was looking for. Lightweight, not bulky, the go-anywhere, do-anything jacket in temps over 45. I give it a 4 instead of a 5 rating b/c of the color. I thought it would be a lighter silver/gray color and its darker than I would have liked.

Arcteryx Gamma LT Jacket is a hit
October 24, 2012

I have had the Arcteryx Gamma LT Jacket since this early Spring and it is a well constructed, durable, lightweight jacket. This jacket is a perfect Spring and Fall jacket which will keep you comfortable with just a shirt and undershirt down to the upper 40's to low 50's. The fabric has a nice feel to it and has a slight stretchy quality which is perfect in outdoor activities. The jacket is form fitting with an athletic cut but not tight. I am 5'9" weighing 180lbs and a large fits me snug but comfortable and reached just down below my waist. I had tried an XL and the sleeves were a little to long. Even though Arcteryx products are on the pricier range I believe they are extremely well built and worth the investment. My jacket is black and it is a nice deep dark black.

Great jacket for everyday wear
September 29, 2013

I had the Men's Gamma LT Jacket for over 3 years and they look and feel great to wear. I wear them to work from late Fall to early Spring mainly to office on weekdays. They are ok during light rain and shower but not for heavy downfall. I never tried them in snow but I don't think it has good water protection. It just repel water. I have worn it for business trip to Chicago (yes Windy City) and the wind protection sucks big time. Since the length is just above your waist, I don't recommend for windy weather. It is great for California winter and it looks great with office shirt. I like that it is comfortable, looks very informal yet presentable and keep your warm.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Ease of use, Cons: Low performance

Great everyday jacket
February 22, 2010

I love this jacket. Great for everyday and especially in the wind. Just what I was looking for.


December 06, 2010

Awesome jacket, it 's very suitable for spring or fall, I feel very comfortable with it, it can prevent me from wind and not heavy rain, moreover, it 's so breathable. Due to its lightweight, it's so easy to put into my package for trip, At last, it looks cool in appearance. I like it.

Great fit & light & warm jacket
December 06, 2010

This jacket is very light and suprisingly warm even though it doesn't look like it at first glance. I have just tested in very freezing temperature. It is not bulky and very fitting - true-to-size. Actually better than other similar jackets from North Face.

Nice all around jacket. Great for layering. Packs nicely and provides nice warmth and protection for most moderate conditions. Great for snowboarding/skiing on non-snowy days.

Outstanding jacket
December 14, 2009

I purchased this jacket for my son. He said it is the best jacket he has ever owned! He likes the feel of the fabric as well as the fit, but especially the warmth it provides. Definitely a 5!


from Oklahoma City

I love this jacket!!!
August 18, 2011

I'm 6 foot tall and 180 and the medium fits perfectly. there is just enough room to layer with a thin t-shirt and fleece. It's great for the Fall and early Winter seasons. It's super stretchy and water resistant. I give this 5 full stars. (even if it doesn't have an inside pocket.)

Arc'teryx: Gamma MX jacket comfortable and warm useful!!

waiting for the climb
April 17, 2011

i like my new jacket. up to now i only used it for city purposes, but am eager using it for summer mountaineering - that is why i originally bought it: to keep the hands warm while the partner is climbing. i rate it only 4 points because the jacket still has to perform under really bad conditions.


Great Fabric, Nice Stretch
March 31, 2010

Absolutely love this jacket. The material is tough and has a nice stretch. Wicks water well and fits great.


January 23, 2011

Good jacket! It's very comfortable, and It's very suitable for spring or autumn and could provide windproof and high breathable. Same with other Arc'teryx items, It has a high quality. I am satisfied with it.
