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.

I 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!
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.
