When you're hundreds of feet up a wall, the slightest breeze can turn an otherwise enjoyable climb into a shivering, teeth-chattering grind; slide on the Arc'teryx Women's Gamma LT Hooded Softshell Jacket to stay protected against the wind and mid-summer alpine temps. Wee Burly Double Weave softshell combines the durability of a nylon face with a polyester backer for strength and stretch, and the fabric also has a DWR finish, so raindrops ricochet off the jacket. The regular fit sits closely to your body, too, without being too tight to restrict movement. The Gamma LT features a helmet-compatible StormHood that moves with you, so you are able to maintain a good field of vision when you belay your climbing partner. The jacket's Vislon front zipper resists water, and the stretch gusset cuffs seal around your wrists and a hem drawcord keeps any unwanted winds from breezing up your back as you climb. One chest pocket secures any valuables you need to keep close, leaving your hands free to warm up in the two hand pockets as you relax with your partner at the top of the route.

From the mountain to the pub to rehash your adventures over a brew, the Arc'teryx Gamma LT Hoody for women will protect you from the elements in lightweight comfort. This stretch-woven hoody is made with Burly nylon/poly/spandex blend fabric, with a smooth outer face and DWR finish to bead and wick moisture. Designed for active alpine endeavors, from climbing to trekking, the Gamma LT Jacket is exceptionally durable and versatile, and it compresses and packs well so you can always have it on hand. It's non-insulated, with a soft inner face that feels comfortable against your skin, and it has a slim fit that fits well over base layers and can be worn under a waterproof shell without restricting your movement with too much bulk. Stretchy fabric with articulated patterning and underarm and wrist gussets allows unrestricted movement, whether you're scrambling up some boulders toward the mountain summit or reaching up to clip a quickdraw. It's breathable enough to keep you comfortable on a steep mountain ascent, yet it blocks wind and resists moisture with outstanding performance. A laminated chin guard with a soft, brushed-lined collar reduces chafing in cold, windy conditions.
