Price Paid: $260
I was a little skeptical of how good Arc'teryx stuff was until I tried this one on. I had been very happy with my Mountain Hardwear and Marmot, so thought the extra I would have to fork out for a similar Arc'teryx was really a waste of $$. But I was so wrong.
The difference is in the cut, the fit, and the overall fabric. Added plus is that it's all made in Canada. I bought size XS and it hugs me really well. I am looking to get the Fission AR jkt at this rate, probably size s, for more space with layers. But this Gamma MX Hoody is an all round great buy. You're getting every penny's worth!
