The Arcteryx Women's Nuclei Hoody is a cozy mid-layer with strategically mapped insulation to maximize warmth while minimizing weight. The synthetic Coreloft™ is more dense throughout the core and less dense in the sleeves and side panels. The end result is a lightweight, mobile jacket that is so trim it'll feel like wearing a comfy old sweatshirt. I know you've been out in the woods or out on the wall when temperatures dropped and you longed for some effortless warmth. With the included mini stuff sack you can easily keep the Nuclei Hoody at arms length for just this situation. Or to use as a pillow. Or to dress a snowman in a pinch.

ARC'TERYX MEASUREMENT and FIT GUIDE
HOW to MEASURE:
Chest / Bust - Measure around your chest / bust, holding the measuring tape under your armpit.
Waist - Measure around the natural waist, which is often the narrowest part of your waist.
Hip - Measure around your hips at the widest part.
Sleeve Length - With your arms in a slightly bent postion, measure from the center of the back of your neck, along the length of your arm, to the wrist.
Inseam / Pant Length - From a standing position, measure from your crotch to your ankle.
Dress Length - Measuring the front of the garment from the neckline at shoulder to the hem edge.
Head Circumference - Measure the full circumference around the widest part of your head.
Hand Length - Measure from the tip of your middle finger to the base of the palm.
Hand Width - Measure the circumference of your hand around the knuckles, excluding the thumb.
• Please note that all the info provided above refers to body measurements, and NOT the dimensions of the garment.
FIT TYPE INFO and DETAILS:
Next to Skin Fit - These snugly-fitting garments are made with stretch fabrics to fit next to the skin to enhance moisture management and thermal efficiency. Garments in this fit category when constructed using Arc'teryx's heavier-weight AR and SV fabrics also perform very well as mid layer pieces, and users should consider selecting a larger size to accommodate a base layer underneath if the intention is to use this layering system as a mid layer option.
Trim Fit - Trim-fitted garments share the motion-friendly traits with Arc'teryx "Athletic" fit garments, but are patterned with lower volume for reduced bulk. These close-fitting pieces layer well under other garments.
Athletic Fit - This is the "Arc'teryx Standard" fit. These complete patterns utilize anatomical shaping and gussets to enhance motion by minimizing excess bulk. Easy layering under or over each item extends seasonal versatility and comfort.
Relaxed Fit - Relaxed fit garments rely on higher volume patterns and a reduced amount of articulation to offer roomy mobility.
Expedition Fit - Cut roomier than the Arc'teryx Athletic fit and suitable for winter/extreme conditions, Expedition (XPD) fit garments are cut larger to accommodate multiple layers without binding or restricting movement.
• You can find the fit type and additional fit info for Arc'teryx styles in the product description FEATURES and SPECIFICATIONS.

Excellent Mid-Layer, Conditional Outer LayerI own 3 men's Nuclei and have used them on extensive hikes and semi-technical climbs in Alaska. I appreciate the very light weight, great insulation, and slick outer fabric which moves freely below a hard or soft shell. I have purchased several for my daughters and their husbands for casual wear and light hiking. It is important to understand the "fit" (Next to Skin vs Trim or Slim vs Athletic vs Relaxed vs Expedition) as defined on the Arc'teryx website to insure proper sizing of any of their garments. My only caveat is the surface fabric can be easily ripped if worn without a shell - for example while bushwhacking. For a more durable outer layer consider the Arc-teryx Atom LT.

Lightweight yet very functional jacket!I ordered the Arcteryx atom lt hoodie a few months back and I love it! I wear it almost everyday since I got it. It is so light weight but very warm. When it is around 20 degrees, I usually put a softshell over and I am toasty. Then I saw the Arcteryx nuclei and ordered 2. One in platinum and another in mango tango. The shades are beautiful! The only difference with the atom lt is that the stretchable panel on the side. The nuclei has 80g of coreloft around the body, making it a warmer choice for those colder mornings and evenings! What is great, it is so lightweight that I feel like I am not wearing a jacket, but yet, it keeps me so warm! I sized up on this one so that I could layer. The quality of this jacket is also amazing! And with the lifetime warranty, you can't go wrong on this one. It may be an expensive jacket but it is so worth it! If you are thinking of getting one, get it! You will be very satisfied with it!

great insulationI bought this jacket for backpacking in at high altitude when temps still go below freezing at night. It is super lightweight, and the fit is immaculate. The only thing that kept me from keeping it is that a competing jacket had a self-stuff pocket as opposed to a separate stuff sack which I will inevitably lose. Quality is awesome though.

Light-weight, comfortable, warmI love this jacket for many reasons. First of all, it is thin and light weight, and yet, still keeps me very warm. Secondly, on the inside of the jacket, there is a little pocket with a stuff sack. Yes, a stuff sack! When I went to the Red River Gorge for an unexpectedly warm weekend in November, I stuffed it away and threw it in my backpack. How convenient! On top of being warm, it is very versatile. I find that with other winter jackets, I have to take them off when I go inside - I just heat up too much. With the Nuclei however, when I step inside, I do not overheat. I just unzip my jacket, and it is more than tolerable for a quick visit. This is the jacket for you if you are active. You are not going to stay very warm outside if you are just sitting there. If you are walking or moving around however, the jacket keeps your body heat trapped, allowing you to stay warm. Since I bought this jacket, I have not switched back to my knee-length down jacket!

Loved the jacket but......Love the jacket and the colors but when it came in, it didn't have 'Arcteryx' on the front. WIERD! The picture shows the arcteryx logo w the word 'Arcteryx' in white. The jacket I received only had the logo in a silverish color. Kind of disappointing. Didn't receive what the picture shows.
