The Gamma SL Hybrid Hoody form Arcteryx is a lightweight hoody designed for weight-conscious alpine specialists moving quickly over mixed terrain. A hybrid of a durable, weather-resistant fabric in high-wear areas and a lightweight, quick drying, breathable fabric in the main body that accentuates heat and moisture control with high weather protection.
Aerobic winter activities like backcountry skiing and ice-climbing require a unique combination of weather protection and breathability to keep you performing without freezing up or overheating. The Arc'teryx Gamma SL Hybrid Softshell Hoody Jacket strikes this balance with the strategic combination of Fortius 1.0 weather-resistant fabric at the shoulders and sleeves and TerraTex breathable fabric in the body.


When your multi-pitch climbs call for light weather resistance, wear the men's Arc'teryx Gamma SL Hybrid Hoody Jacket. Two types of fabric offer stretch and resist abrasion from rough rock.

Arc'teryx Gamma SL Hybrid Hoody Reviews:

Positive Reviews:

I have this jacket as well as an Alpha SL. Bottom line is that if I know it's going to rain--or if I would be SOL if I got wet--I bring the Alpha. But for times/places where I'm looking for maximum breathability but with the potential protection from either brief rainfalls or drier precipitation (snow) or a chilling wind, the Gamma is awesome. Bottom line is that it is versatile -- but only within a narrow set of variable conditions.
So... for snowshoeing for example, this shell is great. It is super for commuting via bike (the tail is definitely long enough), and for any sort of aerobic activity during the winter. I often use it as my backup layer for nordic skiing or for pre-ride setup and after ride beer drinking--because it is so breathable I can stay warm while getting less sweaty.
Get stuck in this in a hard rain and you'll be soaked. And don't expect much insulation because it actually has none. It packs quite small.
I keep this piece in my truck year round. I use it most frequently as an emergency coverup in this regard. After that, I use it most for winter sports (nordic skiing and snowshoeing). Third most often, it's the jacket I pack in my luggage when traveling within the US: protects me from quite a lot, but if it's pouring I know I can still buy an umbrella.
A minor fashion note: this isn't as sharp as some of the other Arc' stuff since the hybrid pattern is (IMO) ugly and the breathable fabrics here are always crumply looking. Not a fashion piece... just a functional one.

This is a very thin and light garment. I think that it is a fine piece for summer, but I am not sure it has much utility for the fall or spring. I chose the Venta MX instead.
There is no insulation and it doesn't seem possible that it would generate more than negligible warmth. It is a little crinkly or, put another way, the fabric puckers a little. It stretches. It is very much like an old school, unlined track jacket. I can tell it is well made, but cannot justify the price even with the considerable 40% discount.
Fit is a half size small if you don't have a trim waist. I wear XL in TNF, but XXL in Arc'teryx, meaning the XL is tight around the waist and the XXL is loose. I plan to use it skiing and picked XL because it will handle layers. I am 6'2" 265 with a football player's build.

I was looking for a 3 season softshell for Maine hiking and this jacket exceeded all expectations! It is lightweight, stretchy and the fit is spot on. It is my second Arcteryx purchase this season, the first being an Epsilon SV Hoody, and I'm not sure which I like best. The Gamma SL Hybrid is perfect to wear on cool days, packs into its hood to carry for emergency protection, and when combined with a midlayer can be worn into the low 30's easily. I'm 6'3" weigh 195 lbs. and the large fits great. I got it in Brimstone, which is less yellow and more of a it!

Neutral Reviews:

I've only used this a couple of times. I'm pretty happy with it, but realize that the material is very thin and it's true that it's only wind resistant. I recently used this on a 10 mile hike, temperature ranged from 75 to 66, the wind speed around 11 mph. I had only a t-shirt underneath and I'd say I was just OK, a little cold but not very uncomfortable. A little warmer base layer would've been perfect.
I found that the arms run very long on this jacket and the fit seems a little loose even if it's listed as athletic and I could loose a few pounds myself.
Given the long arms, slightly loose fit, hip length (rather than waist length) and super thin fabric I find this to be a specialized jacket. In the right conditions I'm sure it's hard to beat but that limits its use. As such I wouldn't pay full price for it. I got mine on sale.
