The Arc'teryx Men's Atom hoody is easily the most owned jacket here at Moosejaw. With good reason (and not just the fact that it's made of tons and tons of atoms). The Atom SV is a durable mid-layer that can function as an outer layer. Featuring Coreloft™ synthetic insulation in the torso, arms and hood, and tricot side panels and underams, this cold weather jacket offers ample warmth while minimizing bulk and maximizing mobility, all in a lightweight package. So wear it around the city, wear it up the trail, wear it on the mountain tops; you'll be happy you brought it. All my coworkers sure are (you can tell by the way they constantly chest bump each other).

SPECIFICATIONS of the Arcteryx Men's Atom SV Hoody
This jackets great if you're looking for warmth and some moisture wicking without having a ton of layers on. I really like the tapered cuffs on the sleeves, since cold air can sneak in easily there on other jackets. This thing does run a bit big, I have a 43" inch chest and I felt I was swimming in it. But I like a more tapered fit.
"One of the better jacket from Arcteryx!"
I owned about a dozen Arcteryx jackets in my days and this is one of my favorites. It is very versatile piece as you can layer it during cold winter and wear it by itself during spring and fall. I guess you will have to put this baby in your closet during summer but other than that, you will get much use out of this one more than any other jackets you will own though out the year. I like the price as well!
i spent hours and hours to find the best jacket for winter, and i read a lot of reviews about this jacket and compare it to the other brand (especially TNF.) long story short, i made up my mind and bought this atom sv, couple reasons i choose this jacket over another brand: 1. it has a lot of good reviews about this jacket. 2. a lot of my friends have TNF jacket and i see that everywhere... i want something different, good quality, good looking and of course something that can protect me in cold weather. i tell you guys, this jacket has it all (style, comfort, quality). this jacket is so light weight, the inside material is so soft, very warm for around 30F i just need one layer cloth underneath this jacket. i never though i would spent so much money on one jacket, but i'm so happy with my decision. one of the best invesment i've ever made.
