The Arcteryx regular fit is streamlined and athletic while allowing room for midlayers. The helmet compatible StormHood delivers full coverage with a high level of visibility and freedom of movement and the Gammas hip length hem and streamlined patterning allow it to lay comfortably under a harness or pack belt. Stretch gusset cuffs provide a secure fit but push up easily for ventilation. REFINEMENT AND INNOVATION Refinement and subtle innovation are Arcteryx design obsessions. To facilitate heat dump without inadvertent opening the Gamma LT employs the ingenious No Slip Zip. The zippers unique construction involves a series of bumps on the top few teeth to prevent self-opening but as in many Arcteryx pieces the zipper may be rapidly opened with a single hand for almost instantaneous heat dump. This seemingly little thing clearly shows the Arcteryx attention to detail.
