Description

Arc's multitasker.

Arc'teryx made the Atom LT Hooded Insulation Jacket versatile for year-round mountain adventures from climbing to skiing. Its Tinthan shell is light yet durable, and the DWR coating sheds rainfall to help keep you dry on hikes and backpacking trips. Breathable Polartec Power Stretch side panels make sure you can move around with complete freedom of motion, whether you're wearing it as a midlayer or an external shell. Synthetic Coreloft insulation retains its warmth in wet weather, and the adjustable StormHood slides over helmets with ease. Arc'teryx also added an adjustable hem, a zippered internal pocket, and two zippered hand pockets for your convenience.

Should be renamed the Workhorse

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

It's pretty simple. You can use this jacket for just about anything. Running around town and need a quick outer layer? Check. Ski touring and need a breathable jacket? Check. Stuck in the blizzard that will end the world as we know it and use it as a mid layer? Check. You really don't have to take it off until the temps get above 70. Enjoy the best value purchase you will make this year.

Love this jacket!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

This is one of the greatest jackets that I own. I love it so much that I have two different ones. I'm 5'9" and 160 lbs and the Medium fits me perfectly. This jacket is super warm for its weight. I will wear this thing by itself down to about 20 degrees F, and all they way up to 60 degrees F, so it's crazy versatile. I no longer take fleece jackets backpacking because this jacket is lighter and packs smaller. I pack this jacket into it's own sleeve to make it easy to store. This thing does shed some moisture, but if you put this under a hard shell, you'll be able to battle most elements that mother nature is going to throw at you.

Great All Around Jacket

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

This has quickly become my go-to jacket because of its perfect combination of ample warmth, light weight, breathability, and wind blocking capability. I also really appreciate the minimal design--I feel like Arc'teryx generally trims their products down to the bare essentials, and this jacket is a great example of that. I can easily take it from an outdoor setting to a more professional environment without worrying because of its low-profile look.

So far I've mostly used it commuting to school on my bike in temperatures ranging from 20-40 and it is perfect. It breathes fairly well and blocks the wind like a champ. I generally only wear a t-shirt underneath and it is definitely warm enough for me. In light precipitation the DWR finish does its job and the water will bead up and roll off, which is nice but will probably only last for a little while. The hood works really well at sealing your head from the elements and the cinch is a really nice addition from last year's model, in case you need to tighten it up a bit. My only complaint with the hood is that it doesn't move very well with my head, which makes visibility somewhat of a problem when cycling, but it's not a huge deal.

I am 6' 2" 185 lbs with fairly long arms and the large fits perfectly--not too snug, not too loose. I noticed some people complaining about the zipper not staying up, but haven't had a problem with this so far. The construction is top-notch and the subtle elastic cuffs are a great feature. All in all this is probably the most versatile jacket I have owned and I would recommend it to anyone.

Does anyone know what is the main difference between atom leaf vs ordinary model?
Does leaf atom model have 40d fabric?
How does it compare in general to ordinary atom?

Responded on

The main differences between the leaf model and the regular one are that the leaf has a more durable face fabric (called Gossamera--same fabric as the Atom AR), it is a few ounces heavier, has a "vertically routed" hip adjustment cord, and the color of the logo matches the fabric color. In my experience, the leaf model fits a little baggier. I ended up going with the regular model because it fits a little trimmer and is more packable, which is what I was looking for.

Responded on

I use the LEAF Version- it is 2oz heavier and offers cord routing through the hand pockets in addition to using more durable face fabric.

I bought an Atom LT hoody about a year ago on BackCountry. I love everything about this jacket except for one major issue. The main front zipper will not stay all the way up when doing almost any sort of activity. It literally falls down 4-5 inches even when just wearing a backpack. I talked to Arcteryx with no resolve and was told it was by design to make one hand operation easy. My question is have they fixed this design issue for the new model this year? I love my jacket but this zipper issue is a tough one to overlook, just wish I could somehow get it resolved from a company like Arcteryx........

Responded on

I asked my buddy who used to work at Arc'teryx and he also says that the zipper is like that by design for easy one hand operation.

For instance, when you have a shell on and want easy access to some ventilation, you can unzip your shell and pull on the collar of the Atom LT to open it up some. While the zipper is soft, I have one myself and haven't had problems with it unzipping too much.

So to answer your question, no, they haven't fixed this--but they also don't see it as an issue since it was designed this way. Still love this jacket!

Perfect

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

5'11" 185 with Long Torso and Long Arms. I'm usually a large, but with Arcteryx, I've had sleeve length issues so I pulled trigger on XL. It's a bit loose in the chest, but the length in arms and torso is perfect.

As for performance, this thing is light and yet very warm. If it's not raining, I wear this. Period.

Amazing coat!

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

This is my first experience with Arc'teryx and I must say, I am a believer. This is more comfortable than any light weight mid layer that I've ever worn (marmot, north face, etc). So warm, so soft, very light weight, very versatile. Wore it in about 30 degrees today and stayed very comfortable. This will go great under my shell for the slopes this season. I am 6'4" 200lbs, I wear the XL and it fits very good. Plenty long in the sleeves and close comfortably and snuggly around gloves to keep the wind out, plenty long past my butt which I like. Doesn't ride up with I raise my arms. The fabric just blows my mind it's so soft.. I can't stop rubbing my face on it. It's also trim fitted so it's still very "stylish" and not big and boxy. I couldn't be happier with this purchase and recommend this jacket. My only complaint (and it's not even a serious one) is that the Arc'teryx emblem isn't embroidered on, it's just a silk screened sticker that MIGHT wear off eventually. An embroidered emblem would be a pretty sweet cherry on top but I'm seriously nitpicking here.

The gift of all gifts!

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift
  • Fit: True to size

My brother recently graduated from Medical school and will be moving to DC where the winters can be pretty cold. I wanted to get him something more than just a tie and so I decided to get him this. To show that I REALLY care LOL. I personally have not just one but TWO of the women's version and love them and thought that this would be a good jacket for those cold east coast winters. HE LOVES IT! He is ecstatic to come to Utah to test it against our winter versus the east this x-mas. If you are looking for the gift that keeps on giving warmth, then this is your jacket. He is 5'9" and about 140-50 and the medium fits him perfectly. It is more trim cut so you can only really layer with a light sweater under it. Also the Posidon color is gorgeous!

Responded on

That's an awesome gift, Jane- it has the added bonus of being able to make your bro stand out and look way cooler than all of the DC folk wearing their North Face fleeces! (Seriously, there are sooooo many- DC casual in the winter is jeans and a North Face fleece)

Responded on

Thanks Travis it is a superior product for sure and I know that he'll enjoy it for sure.

Versatile

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

Great versatile jacket. Can be used from around town to hiking to layering for skiing to makeshift pillow at camp to makeshift blanket when ur stuck in an airport lol. Great warmth to weight ratio, this thing packs the heat given it's size/thickness. Fits nicely under a hard shell (I have put it under my sidewinder ), and packs into its own pocket. I also have the nano puff, this arc jacket is def more form fitting and trim cut than the nano. Order your usual size. Highly recommend, esp if u can grab it on sale.

Responded on

I've got a nano puff (no hood) and would like something a bit warmer. The Atom is on sale everywhere right now. How would you say the warmth compares to your nano puff?

Responded on

you're basically talking about primaloft (nanopuff) vs. coreloft (atom). coreloft is arc's proprietary insulation, while primaloft is more of an industry wide material. To be honest, you won't notice much difference in warmth between these jackets, they are very similar in that aspect. I would again reiterate that the atom is more fitted, so if you're looking to put it under a shell, def get an atom. disclosuer, my nano is a few years old, it's not the new nano 'air' model

Best insulating layer.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

This jacket is one of my favorites. I can wear it in the lower 60s all the way down to the upper 30s, and even lower if I use it as a layering piece. The zipper is super smooth, the material is durable, and I particularly like the breathability of the stretchy material located on the sides. If you want an all-around, light weight, insulated jacket, look no further!

Hi!

What is the color of sleeves cuffs on green color? On official page I notice that they are grey but on attached picture i noticing they are same color as body color.

Please let me know.

Thanks!

Responded on

I would go with the image that is on the official Arc'teryx website, which shows them as gray. Your image may be an older version of the jacket, or maybe a knock off.

Have a question about the Carbon Copy color. Is this actually the black color? In REI and a few other sites like EVO, the carbon copy color is listed as black and their Carbon copy version has the blue trim and interior color. So which one is correct?

Responded on

According to Arcteryx's site, the Carbon Copy has a more matte finish and the red interior. http://arcteryx.com/product.aspx?language=EN&gender=mens&category=Insulated_Jackets&model=Atom-LT-Hoody.

Responded on

Carbon Copy is a dark, raw carbon fiber color. Think a shade lighter than slate. The red inside accents it well. This comes from someone who has tried on the jacket.

Responded on

It is graphite, rather nice dark grey, definitely NOT black. The stretchy material on the sides is black though, providing an accent/contrast.

Hi!

Can someone post real pictures of...

Hi!

Can someone post real pictures of POSEDION & KYANOS color. I am interested in blue but hard to pick the right blue ;)

Thanks for help!

Responded on

XYZ,

The colors BC.com uses are color-correct and good references. Poseidon is a darker blue, almost more of a "Navy Blue." Kyanos is lighter than Poseidon.

Responded on

Still would like to see how Kyanos look like compare to Poseidon. Looking this jacket same color - Poseidon do not look very dark blue to me:

Kyanos is pretty much the same colour as Olympus blue. I put the 2 jackets together and Kyanos was the slightest amount darker in hue.

New Atom LT is a worthy upgrade for some

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

Simple: one of the most versatile synthetic pieces you can buy.

Competitors: BD Access Hybrid/LT, Patagonia Nano Puff, OR Halogen Hoody

The Fall 2014 Atom LT includes a new hood, that uses the 'ballcap' adjuster behind the head- identical to the one used in the Cerium LT hoody.

It moves with your head, offering unparalleled peripheral vision.

It's less warm than the Nano puff, but more versatile. Awesome mid layer for skiing the cold days, or on it's own in the spring. Used it backpacking, walking around town, and on a bike. The fleece lined pockets are a greatly appreciated bonus.

Responded on

Patagonia is releasing new Nano puff called Nano Air. I think this jacket will be better compared to Atom LT (which I love btw).

See here , looks really good:
http://www.patagonia.com/us/product/mens-nano-air-hoody?p=84260-0

Responded on

Atom Lt also got a little longer in the torso than the previous version

Responded on

The Nano Air is nice, but lacks the internal pocket, fleece lined hand pockets and the windproof material of the jacket. Its outer material is 60 CFM- kind if like a softshell.

The Atom LT will be much more protective and offers a better hood

New Atom LT

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: True to size

This is not a review of warmth or durability. I ordered because I was curious about the new model of this great jacket.
In this revision they changed the fabric which is hard to tell by looking at it. One person said this is the same fabric used on the Atom SV.?? It is still very thin, I took a close up for detail of fabric. The hood has changed to fit a helmet, I can't test the fit as I don't have a helmet to test with but I know it's bigger than the previous and DOES include an adjuster on back of hood which cinches sides and top of hood at the same time. Inside pic of hood shows where the cord runs. They also changed the stretch cuffs by making the cuff shorter. I don't have my old version to show a side by side comparision but if you have the older one you can see the difference. The fit seems a little bigger to me but maybe not. This is the carbon copy color, similiar to colors in the past and not as dark in the stock photo.
I hope this is helpful for someone looking to purchase this updated model. I won't be keeping because the hood is so big for use without a helmet.

New Atom LT
Responded on

Any idea if it is cut longer in the front? I have always found the medium atom LT too short in the front (Larges are perfect in length- but too big in the torso)

Responded on

I don't have my older version to compare but the length seems the same. Others can add in if they disagree.

Responded on

Paul, the cut is the same. BTW, I messed up on the new Atom LT- I have the LEAF version of the new Atom, which uses the Gossamera fabric, a less packable but more durable fabric than Tintham- which is what the NEW (standard) Atom LT uses.

The Gossamera is found on the new Atom AR and former on the Atom SV.

Responded on

Thanks so much for the pics. BC really needs to update their stock photo. You have done a service sir! Question: the lining is red, and NOT orange, correct?

Does this model have the hood pull...

Does this model have the hood pull adjuster?
I notice the new model on the arc'teryx website has one but they are only offering three color options on their website. Is this the same model?

Responded on

Yes it does. I ordered one out of curiosity and to provide a review since no one has yet. The hood is bigger than previous model for helmet. I don't have a helmet to try with it though. I will provide pictures and other thoughts when I have more time.

Not really a question or review but just...

Not really a question or review but just thought it was curious how Arcteryx let BC sell this before they even release it on their site. I am dissapointed as I have been waiting for this new version to come out and see it has a helmet compatible hood and they changed the face fabric. I would like to know how people like the new fabric but I won't be purchasing this one since I don't wear a helmet for my activities and the original hood was even a little big. I hope others like it. I just wish this company made more jackets with normal hoods, though I guess they are aiming at a specific group of people with their gear.

Responded on

The new fabric is identical to the Atom SV. It's more stout, and less prone crinkling.
