Arc’teryx LEAF – Gamma Anorak IFF

Today, pre-orders begin for the second Arc’teryx LEAF SMU, the Gamma Anorak. SMU is an acronym for “Special Make Up” which is a custom run, not included in the standard lineup, but generally based on an in-line item.

The Gamma Amorak is quite popular in the outdoor line and this SMU, the Gamma Anorak IFF is identical except for the distinctive Ranger Green color and the 4″ x 4″ Velcro arm patches for attaching IFF to your anorak. These also incorporate V-Lite retention loops.

It’s made from a lightweight 4-way stretch nylon/spandex double weave treated with DWR. It has great air-permeability for high intensity use.

It features articulated patterning, a deep front zipper for ventilation, a zippered low-profile exterior left chest pocket, drawstring hem, adjustable hood, and elasticized cuffs.

I have tried one of these on and I own one of the Outdoor line versions. If you like anoraks, you will love this one. Sizing is directly from the outdoor version of the Anorak, so if you want some extra room, go up a size.

Although retailers are taking orders now, these jackets will not ship until Tuesday, 7 Dec 2021. I fully expect these to sell out quickly.

Here is a list of where you can order yours, based on your region:

Asia Pacific




911 Supply

DS Tactical



Alpine Fox GMbH

Edgar Brothers


United States

US Elite Gear

    Color me intrigued! The GAMMA SL line is a solid and affordable performer in Arc’teryx’s soft shell lineup. But the currently offered colorways (black, red, and blue) leave a lot to be desired.

    It’s pullover not anorak.

    • SSD says:

      It’s an Anorak, “a hooded pullover jacket originally made of fur and worn in the Arctic, now made of any weather-resistant fabric.”

    So the color is Ranger Green and not Croc?

    I’m holding out for next season’s Arcteryx Otaku.

    @SSD Do we know any info about the Canadian Distributors? Can’t seem to find it posted up on any of the 3 listed.

      That’s the info I was given by Arc. I know in the UK, Edgar Brothers went live a day or two after the announcement.
