The weather in New York has been a little cold and rainy, and although those conditions might be a tad premature for the Arc’Teryx Gamma MX Hoody, I haven’t had a chance to wear it since it came in July, so as soon as the temperature dropped I put it to use around town. The coat fits perfectly (gusseted underarms that eliminate bulk) and the hood is meant to go over a helmet, so you’ll have plenty of protection if you’re using it to walk the streets of Brooklyn. The Gamma MX Hoody also has very tight cuffs on the sleeves, a feature of Arc’Teryx coats that I’ve always liked. So far it’s kept me warm and dry, and at only 1.5 lbs, it’ll be getting a lot of use this season. Check out what Backcountry users have to say about it.
