The new Gamma LT Hoody: a tough, easy-to-wear soft shell jacket.
Gamma LT Hoody (men's) - Chipotle
© Arc'teryx, Mar 2013
'Burly Double Weave' fabric plays a lead role in the Arc'teryx collection: it can be found in Gamma SK Ski Touring Pants, new Gamma Rock Pants, many of the glove styles and last but not least in the popular Gamma LT Jacket. Now for Spring this year, a hooded version of the Gamma offers even greater versatility.
The double weave fabric is made from 50% Nylon, 43% Polyester and 7% Elastan, making it four-way-stretchy, water repellent and extremely durable. The Nylon face is very abrasion resistant, while the Polyester inside offers the wearing comfort of a micro fibre fabric. Being a membrane-free softshell fabric, 'Burly Double Weave' is very breathable and easy-to wear, making it the perfect all round soft shell for daily use.
The new Gamma LT Hoody has a drop back hem and a helmet compatible hood with laminated brim. Two zippered hand pockets and an internal chest pocket offer storage room.
The Gamma LT Hoody comes in men's and women's versions in four colours each.
Average weights: 533g (Women's Medium), 687g (Men's Medium).
