"Incredibly versatile, light, and comfortable. My favorite jacket!"
Bought this jacket about 5 months ago and it's already performed admirably on several camping and climbing trips, as well as around town. Packs down really well, and is actually quite warm as long as the wind isn't too bad (the powerstretch-ish material in the side panels isn't too great in the wind.) Warmth-to-weight ratio is amazing, and this jacket is also incredibly flattering. Great buy!
"Great jacket, so long as it's not too windy!"
I took this XC skiing and it was fantastic. I wore a C3 baselayer underneath and was plenty warm. I especially liked the tightness of the sleeves on the end--stretchy enough to be comfortable, but snug so the jacket's sleeves stay in place. I was also able to pack it down and fit it in my purse later in the day around town. Definitely functional and stylish.
Seriously, I would. This jacket is so awesome, you need to get it. Not only is it super lightweight, IT IS SUPER WARM! I got this for my hike on the Appalachian Trail and while I haven't hit the trail just yet, I have worn it plenty. The fit is accurate, it is warm within seconds of putting it on, unlike some fabrics that take a little while to warm up. Great hood, I like the lining in the pockets and the tightness around the wrists. You cant put too much in the pockets without it starting to feel bulky, but thats ok with me. I like to travel light anyway. If you happen to get caught in the rain, it will keep you dry and the rain will roll right off.
Seriously the best jacket ever owned. Literally can wear this thing in any temp (anything below 20-ish degrees I will put on a fleece, but still plenty warm). Sheds snow and light mists, perfect for winter days, fall and summer nights too. I would honestly say this jacket is good anywhere from 20 degrees to a windy 50 degree day. Definitely my most worn jacket
Bought this at the beginning of the winter and it has been the best winter jacket I have ever had. It doesn't feel stuffy and I can actually move around. The stretch material under the arms is great and also helps with breath-ability when doing activities. Perfect for layering and under a shell for rainy/windy/snowy days. I would not change anything about this product also in LOVE with the colors. I wish I had it in every color, sadly that's not practical at all.
I've basically been wearing the jacket every single day since I got it.It's very warm- I took it skiing last weekend. it was snowing and windy the whole time but I was nice and warm. I wore it with a base layer and a hardshell jacket and it was enough to keep me warm. I also wear it everyday on my bike ride to work. I don't look like a marshmallow (down jacket look). Love the way it fits, it has a nice feminine cut. It does run small, I'm normally an XS but I got a S and it fits perfectly with enough space to add a fleece if I need to. I am very petite, 110lb, 5'4" so keep that in mind when looking at the sizes. Love the hood, fits perfect without the need of a drawstring.
This jacket on sale at Moosejaw is very reasonably priced for Arc'teryx AND it looks and feels great! I bought the light blue color, and it's a "dark" light blue, which is nice because I can wear it with jeans and not feel like I'm wearing a "blue suit." It is also a really good fit - I'm 5'4" 135 pounds and the "small" size falls right at my waist and fits all around beautifully. I could see anyone with a longer torso not liking the fit as much though. The hood is really big and can fit over my helmet for spring skiing. Again, LOVE this jacket as a basic layer for the "not-so-bitter" winter days.
I LOVE my Atom LT. I've had so many friends ask me about it and compliment me on it. It's perfect for almost any type of weather: wear it as is in the 30*-50*f range and anything colder, throw on a nice sweater underneath and you're good to go! This jacket packs down nice for backpacking, yet it will keep you pretty warm! Its pretty water resistant, but I wouldnt use it as your main source of water resistance. It's also great if you're a cyclist- it is fitted and is very aerodynamic. Not going to lie though, my it is perfect for climbing. It's flexible and light weight so it's a great jacket to take to the crag.
After buying the men's version for myself I bought the women's for my fiancee. I wear this jacket nearly everyday. It is very versatile. It keeps me warm. The stretch wrists are nice because they keep cold wind from going up your sleeves. The jacket holds up well in moderate rain and makes a great mid layer between my shell (Arcteryx Rush) and base layer (Arcteryx RHO LTW top). This jacket is so great that I am considering getting the Atom LT pants.
