Fabric: Malden Powersheild & Schoeller Fabric
Price Paid: $220 (on Sale)
This one-piece sleeveless suit has power shield on the lower half and schoeller fabric on the top, with nylon facing on the upper front. It zips all the way down the front and up the legs. It has removeable knee pads that really save the arthritic knees. I wear this instead of bibs and it really comes into its own when exposed to the wind. It can get a little hot climbing steeply below treeline, but vents very well. I wear it with mid weight polypro bottoms and a power stretch top. When I hit treeline, I pair it with the Gamma SV and a balaklava and I'm good to go. Every detail is well thought out and of course the Arc'Tyrex fit is perfect, as usual.
Here's what other sites are saying:
The Arc'teryx Gamma Salopette is a must-have suit for your next mountaineering objective. These Arc'teryx overalls are an integrated vest and pant made from hardworking Polartec Power Shield. Developed to be used as a midlayer in extreme cold situations, or with base layers when the intensity heats up, the Gamma Salopette quickly adapts to the task at hand. The now famous Arc'teryx WaterTight zippers access side vents and a through-the-crotch opening that allows you to answer nature's call from even the highest precipice. Integrated instep patches resist wear and tear from crampons or approach skis. Breathable, wind and water resistant fabrics stretch with you, ensuring you have maximum mobility up frozen waterfalls and over frosty summits. Built in kneepad-pockets house EVA foam kneepads to offer added protection. The soft brushed interior of these ascent ready overalls means, that once back at base camp, you may never want to take them off. *Available for US shipment only.
