I'm a ski instructor in Washington State and also an outerwear junkie. I own numerous Arcteryx items including the Gamma SV jacket which is an amazing softshell, and I've been drooling over the Gamma SV vest for a couple years now. I finally bought one from this site last week, and I'm in awe. It's trim and form-fitting but stretchy, so it moves when you do. It has a pleasing feminine shape that is oh so comfortable. You almost feel like you're not wearing it -- except that it keeps your core warmer than all get-out. It's loose enough so you can wear it over a base layer, but form-fitting enough that you could wear both a midweight fleece and hardshell over it and not feel like the Michelin man. I can't wait to try it out on the snow. And this sites customer service is awesome! They are the most professional outerwear company I have ever dealt with. They have the best selection out there and they ship things fast!
